  1. Hey I was just wondering if you guys know when the laws involving the decriminalization (question 2) go into effect
     
  2. January 2nd 2009.

    But there is talk about how the law enforcement in MA are not ready for this and don't have anything in place for it. I read an article, i believe it was on hightimes website that stated the law enforcement in MA were freaking out because they didnt know how to to handle it. One of the main things is that it is now a civil fine and in any civil citation you do not need to provide the cops with your ID so you could say you are Mickey Mouse and you live on One Disney Lane and they have to believe you. but who knows how they will react to that!
     
  3. yeah its decriminalized now, and its funny and true cops are freaking, it was their only 1 reason to ever stop "crime" lol

  5. Here's an article on MA de-crim and the "problems" law enforcement claims they will have enforcing it.

    Seems like the only "problem" they'll have is a reduction in revenue. They'll get over it.
    Only about a week and half 'til it's in effect. Be careful out there our MA friends! :D:smoking:
