Thanks to the widespread legalization of marijuana in more than half of the states in America, cannabis has exploded as a legalized industry, impacting a variety of different revenue sources for communities. From high-paying jobs in cultivation technology and greenhouse growing to dispensary shops, enforcement, and certification to fines for misuse, cannabis has become big business in the United States.
The problem is that many Americans still do not understand that the laws for cannabis use, possession, and cultivation vary depending on the state of residence, and there can be significant consequences – including jail time – for infractions, even in legalized states. For instance, did you know that possession and use of marijuana in a national park in Colorado is still classified as a federal offense and Schedule II drug infraction, even though the state has legalized medicinal and recreational use? We look at some of the duplicity and mixed message legalities involving cannabis and marijuana crimes.
