I remember throwing a sizable party on Legalization Day! That was the end result of years worth of work trying to change the laws, then it is so stupid that pot was ever illegal to begin with.
If you weren’t already aware, marijuana was banned due to political pressure from the tobacco industry.
They basically bullied as well as bribed all the right lawmakers until they could get cannabis officially outlawed, because it was the largest threat to their profits. The hemp plant is so much more useful as well as adjustable than tobacco that the only way to curtail it was to get it banned. It was entirely gratifying to finally have legal access to cannabis products! Of course every one of us didn’t have a legal medical cannabis dispensary in town yet, but that would come in time. Thanks to the new state laws I could order cannabis products from the sizable town as well as have them shipped to my house. It is still a violation of federal law to send cannabis products across state lines, so I can’t mail them to my friends across the country, but I can order them for myself no problem. In terms of having cannabis products shipped, I usually buy flowers because they are so lightweight, then cannabis drinks as well as edibles are just as potent, but they are heavier as well as thus much more costly to ship. It will save me a lot of money once every one of us get our own medical cannabis store in this area, as well as I don’t have to get anything shipped. One afternoon I hope they get rid of all medical marijuana rules.
