I'll have to look back through the bill to see when things go into effect, but I don't know if the decriminalization part is immediate.  It does give the state a hard deadline to get licenses and permits available.

"The scent of marijuana will no longer be grounds for police seizures."

In future, police will have to rely on Japanese cartoons for their seizures, just like everybody else.

HAHAAHAAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH​AHAHHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA

holy shiat you keep the moving the propaganda up every time you post.

It's adorable you think every marijuana store whether medical or recreational have massive armed guards, and while there are maybe 5% of stores that do, 95% do not. But that doesn't fit into your narrative, what with you being the Alex Jones/Kayleigh McEnany/Melissa Carone of Pot Propaganda who makes up stories to try to push your propaganda.

It's always entertaining reading your bullshiat and knowing that you get proved to be an immense liar and propagandist on a daily basis.

Keep up the laughs! And the stories about imaginary friends overdosing on pot and becoming murderers and your newest one, of living with a drug dealer and watching so many imaginary drug deals going down.

You are so full of shiat, your eyes are brown and when a tear comes out, it's diarrhea

Far be it from me to jar you from your ignorance of the subject.  But the material is out there if your interest in it is ever piqued.  And all of that material that I've cited here is from within the "industry" itself.  I'm also going to guess that perhaps you may have missed this or that security feature in one or more of the stores you bought from, inasmuch as I have no doubt that your mind was, at the time, on the merchandise that you intended to leave with rather than on the architectural features of the building you were entering.

tirob is incredibly delusional and completely detached from reality.

When you provide factual information to him, he denies everything that's on there snd changes what was written to suit his propaganda narrative.

Even providing personal examples to him is a waste of time considering how ignores what's being said, in addition to when he provides his own articles, he warps what was written again to spread his reefer madness propaganda.

I'd say don't ignore him, just continue pointing laughing snd proving he is incapable of joining the rest of us in reality where marijuana isn't not the evil he's attempted and failed hundreds of times to make it.

I have never been in a dispensary that had any kind of armed guard presence or even armed clerks. Haven't seen landmines and bars and other security measures that some fear mongers would like to pass off as truth.

I wonder if they argue as vociferously against pawn shops? Places that do have armed guards, armed clerks, bars and extra security and generally tend to feed off petty crime on a daily basis.

Amazing what some shrivs will do to lie about something they could easily just not do and let others do in peace.

Makes me want to pee my pants even thinking of going in there. It's like walking into Alcatraz!

Maybe you should go into a weed store sometime before you start making ridiculous assertions about what the experience is like to people who have actually been to one and know better. I'm not saying you have to consume, just visit one so you know what you're talking about. If you do buy you can flush it as soon as you get home if you like. Call it a fact-finding mission.

But then again, knowing you I know you won't. You'd rather make grandiose claims based on whatever information you can find that best fits your preconceptions.

I believe things about the weed business when they're written by people who are *in* the weed business.

When I was a young person I was taught, and I believed for many years, that weed is benign and harmless and mild and all those other flattering adjectives that its advocates never tire of claiming that it is.  I learned from experience, and from my own observations, that the opposite is the case.  So no, I *don't* believe what I was told to think about weed.  Or about anything else.  So it looks as if you're the one with preconceived notions here, not me.

LOL you do nothing but post your preconceived notions which have no basis in facts or reality on a daily basis.
so ironic that you claim others are doing what you, tirob, do non stop.

But keep on denying the factual information people who are actually informed regarding dispensaries and marijuana as a whole and continue on with your nonsensical propaganda. It's providing a ton of laughs!

And every time you post misinformation and propaganda it does confirm that seems to be the only way you're able to get off, which is utterly pathetic.
