Legalization Spelling Trouble for MMJ (But It’s Not All Bad)
Call us biased all you want, but it’s hard to find much wrong with marijuana legalization.
Legal adult-use cannabis sales have been good for schools, good for the economy and good for social justice. Jobs have been created, potholes have been filled and teachers and police officers (how’s that for irony) have been hired or kept on the job thanks to tax revenue.
Regulated and taxed cannabis sales haven’t caused a massive crime wave (sorry, Jeff Sessions), haven’t led to hordes of stoned teenagers dropping out of life (Instagram is a much bigger threat to society than weed) and haven’t led to dire political or social consequences for the lawmakers and citizens who supported them.
About the only thing we can name that’s been actively and possibly harmed by recreational marijuana legalization is medical marijuana.
Nevada’s Plan for Early Recreational Marijuana Sales Might Be Sabotaged
Nevada’s concept of using its medical marijuana market to temporarily service the recreational sector is scheduled to launch sometime within the next month.
According to a report from the Las Vegas Sun, there are more than 140 applicants vying to become the first to sell weed in manner similar to beer.
The goal of the “early sales” initiative was to give adults 21 and older the freedom to walk into a state licensed dispensary and purchase up to an ounce of weed without flashing a medical marijuana card. Meanwhile, it would give state officials some breathing room while putting together the regulations for the full-scale market set to launch next year.
In the development phase, lawmakers pressed the importance of getting recreational pot sales up and running in enough time to beat the summertime tourism rush. After all, Las Vegas alone is predicted to see as many as 43 million visitors this year.
The Purps (Hybrid)
This scrumptious purple plant comes out of Mendocino County, in northern California, where it began as a clone-only plant among the medical marijuana community. The Purps high soars into a long-lasting purple haze of playful euphoria. It produces an active, awake feeling with a very low burnout factor.
Sparks fly over marijuana legalization
Politically influential opponents of Delaware's marijuana legalization bill voiced their concerns Thursday in a roundtable conversation with Gov. John Carney and the bill's sponsors.
A gaggle of cannabis legalization activists watched on and many offered opinions during a comment session, resulting in a lively and largely measured debate about the future of marijuana in Delaware.
At question is House Bill 110, or the Delaware Marijuana Control Act, which would regulate the recreational use of less than one ounce of marijuana "in the same manner as alcohol."
