A couple of years back, after years of back-and-forth among powers that be plus powers that just wanted to be, the state legislature finally passed a bill to legalize medical marijuana.
Almost immediately, trouble began.
A large percentage of the population was actually against it, plus the law had a lot of caveats in it. One of those caveats limited the number of medical cannabis farms! Right away, a process was put in place to have farms apply to be the medical marijuana farms for the state. I feel they were allowing five, then soon, the five were chosen, however that was not to be! The medical cannabis farms were not allowed to produce because shortly after the five were chosen, there was a serious lawsuit. Apparently, not a single approved grower of medical weed was a minority. The lawsuit brought the medical marijuana corporation to a complete standstill. There were dozens of people financially plus legally ready to open up medical cannabis stores all over the state, however with no product to actually sell, they couldn’t entirely open, could they? The next troublemakers in the line of the medical marijuana melee were the marijuana users themselves. The law did not allow for products that could even be smoked. Medical marijuana would be limited to edibles, oils plus tinctures, CBD tablets plus creams, plus the like. Again, another lawsuit came from this. The legislators thought that smoking medical marijuana was legitimately just a way to legitimize being a druggie. They feared recreational marijuana would not be far behind, plus maybe they are right. I haven’t noticed any particular troubles with medical marijuana being legalized, so recreational marijuana stores are next in the pipeline, I am certain.
