What’s Next For Legalization 2019/2020

Discussion in 'Marijuana Legalization' started by dobro49, Sep 13, 2019.

  1. I’ve been reading around and looking for the next states and municipalities with regards to the legal movement. These news and legal threads seem to be half dead lately. I recently joined NORML after many years of being afraid to and I feel like I’m on an island there too. No conversation to be found except FB and I’ll never join that.

  13. That would be nice and I’d like to think possible. In the 30 years that I’ve been barking about this I’ve been disappointed many times. It would be great to finally get the win.:love-mj2:

  15. Expect over the next decade, the federal government regardless of which party wins the presidency, will continue to allow states to decide and not force the issue universally. That is because it is too controversial in many more conservative states, and the roll-out in states where it has become rec legal has had serious problems. The black market here in California is an especially negative issue that our politicians don't seem to be serious about doing much about. In fact one can expect there are many that want such problems as an excuse to prevent legal recreational use. Before those issues are resolved there is little chance people in conservative states will move any closer. And now with the lung vaping damage in the news, the situation is worse than ever this decade.

    What I do expect may happen, especially if Democrats get back into the presidency, is the federal government will set up limited tax and banking policies for those states where it has been made legal. However interstate cannabis commerce is likely a decade away if that ever happens. In states where it has become rec legal, allowing rec edibles IMO was counterproductive as there are too many ways for that to cause problems that simply smoking flower one need not worry about. A worse can of worms is vaping due to all the nicotine flavor vape chemicals that have been allowed to be put into products without adequate consumer control. One can expect weed haters are now laughing their a$$es off.

  19. Is it just me, or is this "social justice/equity/reparations" demand a politically correct nightmare that is blocking legalization? - As I understand it, these groups want to assist some minorities to "get into the business." But is that really an effective strategy for marijuana reform, or even real justice for the millions of people who have had their lives destroyed by a marijuana arrest?

    It seems to me that, at best, this demand would help a tiny amount of people. If justice is what you really want, wouldn't it be better to just ask for compensation for ALL the victims, instead of trying to "lift up minority communities" on the back of marijuana reform?

    Isn't the best justice of all simply stopping the punishment of all adult consumers?

  20. I understand your pessimism. - I have been a marijuana consumer for almost half a century (in 2020). It seemed like the system was so totally stacked that no reform could ever happen. - Then, 1996 came along with legal, medical marijuana in California and the arrival of the Internet, which broke the media stranglehold on the truth.

    That changed everything and we now have 11 legal states, with more on the way. - Polls show 65 percent of all Americans want to end the fraudulently enacted prohibition. - Even a majority (though small) of Republicans now want to re-legalize marijuana. All the Dem presidential candidates, except Biden, support it. No one knows where Trump really stands, but at least he has not come out against legalization.

    Canada has legalized marijuana nationally, and Mexico is going to do so any day now. - I see much more cause for optimism than pessimism these days.
