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.
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.
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.
Man Given Death Sentence for Selling Weed
Southeast Asian governments have the toughest drug laws on the planet. But a death sentence for selling weed?
Thankfully Jeff Sessions, Trump’s choice for attorney general, forgot that he too once proposed executing pot dealers. Whew.
In Myanmar, vegetable seller, Nur Alam Mohd Hussain, was recently sentenced to death for trafficking cannabis. The 29-year-old was found guilty on the basis of for possessing five pounds of weed, which in his trial he called “fictitious.”
Hussain was arrested last November carrying two envelopes given to him by a third person. When the police surrounded him at a gas station, he dropped the envelopes and ran, later saying he didn’t know what was in them but had assumed they were stolen car parts.
