State Lawmakers Cancel Local Pot Decriminalization—But It Gets Worse
Conservative Republicans are conservative, to a flaw. Big government is evil and bad and must be shunned at all turns, except when smaller government does something they don’t like. In which case: enter, stage right, Big Brother.
This is the lesson to draw from Tennessee, where state lawmakers in the Republican-dominated House voted on Thursday to block the limited marijuana decriminalization efforts undertaken by city councils in Nashville and Memphis.
That’s bad, and means racially skewed arrest rates in the state’s two urban areas—both of which have sizable populations of black people, who (of course) are the people most often arrested for marijuana possession—will continue. It also means possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana will still be a misdemeanor crime, with possession of more than a half-ounce a felony.
White Rhino (Hybrid)
A spinoff of the world-famous White Widow cannabis strain, White Rhino is a dominantly Indica hybridized marijuana strain. It has been created by blending some of the finest characteristics from Brazilian, Indian and Afghanistani strains. It is a cross between White Widow and an unknown strain from North America. White Rhino medicinal cannabis, like White Widow weed, is loaded with mind-loving crystalline THC resin glands.
Minnesota Marijuana Oil Sent to New York Stirs Anger
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Some top Minnesota lawmakers want to crack down on a medical marijuana company whose former executives face felony charges for shipping marijuana oil to New York.
County prosecutors charged two ex-executives at Minnesota Medical Solutions with felonies alleging they collaborated in late 2015 to ship $500,000 worth of marijuana oil to New York. The charges against Laura Bultman and Ronald Owens are still proceeding in court.
But some top Minnesota lawmakers said Thursday they’re pushing to give regulators authority to revoke the company’s license and hit them with a $1 million fine.
Parent company Vireo Health has licenses to sell medical marijuana in both states, but it’s still a federal crime to ship a controlled substance across state lines. The company has said the former employees’ acted improperly.
