West Virginia collecting signatures for November's ballot
Right now West Virginia has a 90 day mandatory minimum sentence for possession of ANY amount of cannabis. I read that and thought; the drug war is still there! Good lord, 3 months for simple possession? Idiots.
Anyway, I digress.
Cannabis activists are collecting signatures to affect local regulations for the November ballot in West Virginia. They want to decriminalize cannabis in Fairmont and the state capitol, Charleston. It would make possession a misdemeanor offense with no fees, no jail time or court fees.
It's a start.
Marijuana Moment has the story.
@artmann I don't get hassled much here honestly. We have such a fentyal & meth problem here that cops aren't interested in small time cannabis busts. It's still BS that I have to hide my grow & live life on the "wrong side of the law".
Always good travel information too @Artmann. You never know about driving through some places and yes you should be aware. Now that it's legal here it's easy to forget that some places still haven't evolved.
3 months for possession blooming heck . I thought the UK was bad .
It must be so confusing in the US wear states are legal and the other not .
So if in the US was to make it federally legal would all the states have to legalise too ?
Here in the UK, its seems down to the luck of the draw you might get done you might not . Depends on the mood of to copper or judge . Not good
I guess I'm like the majority of percy growers, I just want to grow and take my own weed .
if in the US was to make it federally legal would all the states have to legalise too ?
Not exactly. The way it works here is that the Federal Government makes something illegal, like Cannabis, it's illegal in all states. Technically that's the way it is now. If the Federal Government makes it legal, the states still have the option to allow it, or make it illegal locally as the community decides. The big difference with Cannabis is the states are making it legal even though it's still illegal on a federal level. This was made possible by some presidential declarations and instructions to the Department of Justice not to prosecute medical weed. Some states have just pushed farther than the original decree was supposed to cover and now we are in this standoff. It's a brilliant mix of civil disobedience and capitalism driving the industry. Technically the feds could crack down and shut it all down tomorrow but that would be one hell of a mess.
