Get the Criminal Elements Out of the Sale of Marijuana’: The Week in Cannabis Quotes
Plenty is happening all over the world—from brutal hurricanes and earthquakes to savage wildfires—but the cannabis conversation continues with a mix of setbacks, czar appointments, and Speedos. Here’s a roundup of quotes from the past week.

Once the person agrees to plead guilty to possession, he or she will be placed in an intensive treatment program until experts determine that they should be released under intense supervision.

Panel Bans Pot Possession, Ads at Las Vegas Airport
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Recreational marijuana may be legal in Nevada, but add McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas to the list of places including casinos where pot is still banned.
Clark County commissioners have banned marijuana possession and advertising at the airport in a vote Tuesday that raised the possibility travelers leaving town with less than an ounce could get a ticket and have their marijuana confiscated.
If federal Transportation Security Administration screeners find pot at security stations, they can alert Las Vegas police, officials said. Violators could face a misdemeanor charge or civil fines.
The decision keeps airport rules consistent with Federal Aviation Administration rules that consider marijuana an illegal substance, officials said.
