Surprise! Massachusetts' Recreational Marijuana Law Is Facing Some Major Changes
Election Day held significance for a number of reasons. For all Americans it represented a turning point in policy with the election of the 45th president of the United States, but for the marijuana industry it was the culmination of two decades worth of work. Nine states went into the Nov. 8 election with a marijuana initiative or amendment on their ballot, and eight came out victorious (sorry Arizona). The year ended with 28 states having legalized medical cannabis and eight with recreational pot laws now on their books.
One of the many victorious states on election night was Massachusetts, where 53.6% of the nearly 3.3 million people who voted filled in the "Yes" box for Question 4. However, with nearly three months having passed since that vote, one thing is looking painfully clear to the residents of Massachusetts: the state's recreational marijuana law may look nothing like what was passed on election night.
What’s Happening in Arizona? A Lot of Weed is Being Smoked, That’s What…
Arizona’s more than 122,007 medical marijuana patients smoked, ate or otherwise consumed more than 29 tons of cannabis in 2016.
Thankfully, Tucson.com broke it down for us: 29 tons of weed is more than half of a fully loaded tractor-trailer.
Okay, you haven’t seen too many tractor trails lately?
How about this? The equivalent in weight of 29 tons of pot is more than 58,600 bags of Oreos.
The total breaks down to about 27 tons of buds and another couple of tons of edibles and concentrates like wax, shatter and hash oil, according to the Phoenix New Times.
This amount of MMJ sold last year represents a 52 percent increase in legal pot sold in Arizona in 2015—the amount of which was twice as much as 2014.
Police tweet slyly appeals to owner of 5.5 pounds of marijuana
There's little more glorious than authority figures with a sense of humor.
Especially if those authority figures are police officers.
In recent times, the police have taken to social media to show they're not just gruff men and women in uniform, but chuckle-meisters who could one day perform in Vegas.
Colorado Lawmakers Push to Get PTSD Covered Under Medical Marijuana Program
Despite the fact that marijuana is fully legal in the state of Colorado, giving every adult 21 and older the freedom to get stoned without permission from a doctor, lawmakers are still hell bent on giving patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) the freedom to consume the herb under the state’s medical marijuana program.
Several attempts have been made throughout the years to make PTSD a legitimate qualified condition, but the supposed experts behind the Colorado Board of Health have simply refused to budge on the issue. Not even the valiant efforts tossed into the ring of the state legislature have been strong enough to keep the spirit of this topic alive for too long.
However, lawmakers believe 2017 could finally be the year for change.
