I live in a conservative state that is behind the rest of the country in some respects.
Our GDP is pathetic, the two of us have out-of-control obesity rates, in addition to the state government guts the education fund every single time they submit a modern budget.
It feels prefer we’re at a race to the bottom with every other struggling state in the nation. I would transfer to a bizarre locale in the country, although I have to stay here for work. I have made sure to temper our expectations with the laws in addition to government here. For this reason, I didn’t expect any kind of legal cannabis legislation for another 10 years or more. It seemed prefer every other state would have marijuana before the two of us did. To our utter surprise, the two of us passed a constitutional amendment in 2016 legalizing marijuana for medical use in addition to suddenly I had a card in addition to a legal right to shop at any cannabis dispensaries in the state. Even though the two of us had a small number of cannabis companies at a single time, now there are nearly 20 bizarre companies with over a hundred locations in all. Now I’m overjoyed to learn that the recent voter initiative for recreational cannabis just passed with barely enough percentage of the vote. I didn’t guess that our state would have legal recreational cannabis for another multiple or 5 years at least, but now the two of us have the process in motion. Although it will be a year before the modern law takes effect, I’m already excited. I won’t have to pay the state $74 every year just to get a modern medical marijuana card. I will also save $300 in fees to the marijuana doctor as well.
