Pot tracking: federal government looks to set up system for cannabis

Pot tracking: federal government looks to set up system for cannabis

Even most Americans who oppose legalizing marijuana think so. The bill, which would significantly decrease sales taxes collected on marijuana purchases (taxes on patients are lower than on adult users) and excise taxes on businesses, and could cost the state more than $100 million, is awaiting a House vote. Almost 55 million people in this country currently use marijuana: 35 million consume monthly, 20 million consume yearly, and 78 million have tried it, but aren't using it right now.

Alistair MacGregor, the NDP's justice critic, said he is surprised the government can't offer more information. Colorado police use controversial blood tests to detect drivers impaired by marijuana, but administering the tests and prosecuting impaired driving based on them can be tricky, she said. “One of the biggest questions we have is the cost of implementing not just this registry but all of the enforcement measures; How much of this is going to be downloaded on to the provinces?”.

Federal law still prohibits marijuana use, however the previous administration declared it would not enforce federal marijuana laws, with former President Barack Obama saying that attempting to enforce a "patchwork where something that's legal in one state could get you a 20-year prison sentence in another", is "untenable over the long term". "Prohibition just does not work". And on top of that, most people think marijuana is less unsafe than most other drugs, and only 23 percent think legalizing pot leads to an increase violent crime.

"It is a transformative piece of policy that is, I think, a strong response to the realities that we are facing in Canada with high rates of cannabis use". If you want to grow your own, check local laws first, because they vary from state to state.

He added that when Thomas wanted to share something she would whisper stuff in Cummins ear and then Cummins would repeat it. The student, Elizabeth Thomas, was found safe in in Cecilville, near the OR border, her sister Kat Thomas said Thursday.

As proposed, the law would allow possession of up to one ounce of pot by people 21 and over.

"It is a plant". If they're forced to choose between defending Trump on the one hand, though, and siding with his pro-pot critics on the other, it wouldn't surprise me if they shift a bit against legalization.

The findings come soon after Canadian officials announced plans to legalize marijuana around the country by mid-2018.

Trudeau, who admitted to smoking pot after becoming an MP, told Bloomberg on Thursday that Canadas legalization strategy is built around a recognition that marijuana is “not good” for the developing brains of young people. "Getting this out of the illegal market, taking some of those dealers off our streets, restricting access by youth, these are all really good reasons to do it, over and above the financial benefit", said State Rep. Kelly Cassidy (IL-14), co-sponsor.
