I remember throwing a big party on Legalization Day; That was the end result of years worth of labor trying to change the laws, however 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 and bribed all the right lawmakers until they could get cannabis officially outlawed, because it was the greatest threat to their profits. The hemp plant is so much more useful and flexible than tobacco that the only way to curtail it was to get it banned. It was absolutely 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, however that would come in time. Thanks to the current state laws I could order cannabis products from the giant town and have them shipped to our house. It is still a violation of federal law to send cannabis products across state lines, so I can’t mail them to our friends across the country, despite the fact that I can order them for myself no problem. In terms of having cannabis products shipped, I usually buy flowers because they are so lightweight. Cannabis drinks and edibles are just as potent, however they are heavier and thus much more lavish to ship. It will save me a lot of money once every one of us get our own medical cannabis store in this area, and I don’t have to get anything shipped. One morning I hope they get rid of all medical marijuana rules.
