Medical is bullshiat. That's what we have here in Missouri. I hope this stupid, short-sighted, hundred year war finally ends.

I'm hoping with the new administration in place they fast track it and make it legal country wide like Canada has done.

It is extremely farking easy to get a medical card in Oklahoma. You don't even have to have an official diagnosis. Just go see one of the many doctors who have been approved to give recommendations and tell them what conditions you have that weed would relieve. I got my card a few weeks after my appointment.

see, I was lied to again. In the AJC news it said that with a heavy democratic government, chances were good that at least my state might consider legalization and that possibly, could go country wide.

I know, it's up to each state but really all the feds have to do is knock pot off the severe drug lists so that states could legalize something that's not illegal anymore.

I have to remain optimistic. I am out of pot and live in a non legal state.

Maryland and Virginia are both poised to legalize recreational this year.  Unlike medicinal cannabis, which can be tracked through state records, and leaves a paper trail that can be used to deny security clearances, recreational cannabis purchases will be anonymous and unrecorded.

This places employers in the region in an awkward position.  Unlike their ability to screw people out of jobs because they had a medical cannabis card, the only way they'll be able to track recreational use is through frequent drug testing.  While not out of the question, I like to think it's unlikely that businesses will enact harsher drug testing policies in the face of public pressure to legalize.  And if they do, how many talented employees are they willing to lose due to testing or resignations over a substance that is available over the counter?

Removing it from schedule 1 is the easiest thing for the Federal government to do.  Are they going to enact draconian testing measures for Federal employees?  Are they going to keep pressuring people to either lie regarding recreational use on their security clearances or, again, lose talent due to testing in the face of public opposition?  Or they could just remove it from Schedule 1 and be done with it.

Yes, DC has legalized cannabis and the government still acts like assholes about it.  I think it will be different when all three regions of the DMV have legalized it.  People are tired of this stupid bullshiat.

I have some optimism that the grand, re-experiment of "prison for everyone!" has proved that it still doesn't work.  Probably the last resistance to prison-as-a-deterrent for everything will be the commercial interests in incarceration.

The worst idea ever for modern society was to make locking up people profitable.

In MD, I got the feeling that there was anonymous tracking behind the scenes of the reduction in the use of the usual pain killers/ muscle relaxants similar to (or as part of) a clinical trial end point.  My cannabis MD was very interested whether I had continued to get prescriptions for a muscle relaxant I had been using for muscle spasms. (That was my qualifying condition).  I did need to bring my medical records to prove I had a qualifying condition, as well.  If it's getting easier, all the better.

I don't think the federal government can make the States legalize it, it has to be done on a State by State basis. What they can do and have promised, is to make it legal at the federal level, so the industry can use federal banks, can protect their industry with armed guards more easily, and can deduct basic administrative expenses on tax returns.   It also may make it easier to travel with the stuff

Don't look for this to happen anytime soon. The intense political realignment necessary at the United Nations - after we essentially strong armed the world into accepting our preferred position on the old devil's lettuce i.e. cannabis is hell in plant form and deserves its position on Schedule IV - is going to place this particular problem far down the list of what shall we spend our political capital on? It'll be more than miraculous enough if the feds go back to de-prioritizing it and letting the states do as they please. But allowing "drug profits" through banks connected to SWIFT? Don't hold your breath.

Same deal with the doctors in Missouri. Plus it's legal recreationally now in Illinois, so it's de-facto available easily to the whole city of St. Louis, and it's closer (and safer) for even KC people now, who'd been going to Colorado for it and just hoping they didn't get pulled over in Kansas (for years, nearly anyone under age 40 who drove to Colorado for any reason came back with a bunch of weed, as far as I can tell. It was just implied to be part of the reason for any trip to Colorado, if not the entire reason. Kansas would make so farking much money off Missourians if they'd legalize recreational before we do, they're idiots for not doing it years ago).

The main problem is supply. They made a bunch of bullshiat rules to gum up the works, so it's taking for-farking-ever to actually have anything available. People with medical cards in KC are still driving to Illinois, so the medical cards are almost pointless. Notably, none can be imported to the state for sale at licensed dispensaries, and plants can't even be imported. Everything has to be grown from seed, and of course there's a bunch of dumb licensing and crap like that to worry about, including I think some weird stuff about ownership of the farmland (I think you have to own it outright and it has to be held by a Missourian? Something like that) and minimum crop sizes.

In Florida you have to buy from the government created cartel at high prices for shiat quality.  They have gotten better (so i've heard) but are expensive (cartels do that) and constantly out of stock.  They also do not allow people to grow their own.

The requirement for the licenses was 30 years in business and 30,000 acres of nursery land (or something like that).  Basically a way to give the fledgling orange farmers something for the years of "donations" to the parties.  Now many of them haven't used the licenses but are selling them to New York hedge funds.

Glad the free market(tm) party like is running the state.

The problem is a lot of banks won't process payments to dispensaries and it's still a real grey area keeping payments made in banks. You run the very real risk of forfeiture if the feds come in a decide to make an example out of you.

Laws and regulations
In July 2001, a new law maintained the status of illegality for using or possessing any drug for personal use without authorization. The offense was changed from a criminal one, with prison a possible punishment, to an administrative one if the amount possessed was no more than a ten-day supply of that substance.[2] This was in line with the de facto Portuguese drug policy before the reform. Drug addicts were then to be aggressively targeted with therapy or community service rather than fines or waivers.[9] Even if there are no criminal penalties, these changes did not legalize drug use in Portugal. Possession has remained prohibited by Portuguese law, and criminal penalties are still applied to drug growers, dealers and traffickers.[10][11] Despite this, the law was still associated with a nearly 50% decrease in convictions and imprisonments of drug traffickers from 2001 to 2015.[12]

I'm fine with this, you?

Where most of the weed market is still in the hands of the criminal element over two years after legalization at retail?

There was a 40 year head start in the craft cannabis here in BC. The government grown stuff is generally awful and overpriced, to compound that, it is the most offensively overpackaged product I have ever seen. This is all on the governments utter ineptitude. BC, it was truly a 2 car parade.....
