Five More States Legalize Cannabis in November 4th Elections
Five out of five have voted yes on marijuana legalization.
Along with picking the President of the United States, House representatives and senators, voters in various states had other questions on the ballots. Among them five states voted on legalizing medical and/or adult use of cannabis.
Also, Oregon made the news by legalizing psychedelic mushrooms, as well as decriminalizing possession of small amounts of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. The drug initiative will allow those arrested to avoid going to trial, and possible jail time, by paying a $100 fine and attending an addiction recovery program. The treatment will be paid for by proceeds from legal cannabis.
And now, let’s take a look at the voting results.
After failing in 2016, the voters now approved recreational or adult use (21+) of cannabis with possession of up to 1 oz (28 gr) and grow up to 6 plants. The law goes into effect upon passage and after the voters are certified, which should happen on November 30. The tax on cannabis purchases will amount to 16% and the funds will be used for public services and infrastructure.
New Jersey allowed medical use but had not decriminalized cannabis and went straight for legalizing recreational use. The results will go into effect on January 1, 2021. The vote is expected to have an avalanche effect around the North East, specifically in New York.
The voting in this Southern state was complicated. There were two propositions on legalizing medical use. A more strict one from the legislature and another, more inclusive one from the activists. The latter won and now The Mississippi Department of Health will be developing regulations for the program, which should be done by July 1, 2021. The issuing of medical marijuana cards should start by August 15, 2021. The proposal will allow for possession of 2.5 ounces.
One giant leap. In one swift move cannabis in South Dakota went from fully illegal (with strict penalties) to fully legal, and became the first state to do so. Adult consumers will be able to possess 1 oz of marijuana and up to 3 plants. Legalization will become the law on July 1, 2021 and before that the state will need to establish the medical program and various regulations.
Despite numerous obstacles, the state legalized recreational marijuana.Under the proposal, 50% of the revenue from marijuana sales will be allocated for environmental programs, and the rest for veteran services, substance misuse treatment, health care and local governments.
