As of January 1st 2018 the state of Nevada starts issuing licenses for recreational licenses.
This means that the businesses should be up and running not long after that.
Here’s a brief opinion / hissie fit from Samantha’s Remedies:
As of January 1st 2018 recreational marijuana will be legal in Nevada. Licenses will be issued to those companies that already have a medical marijuana license.
And the old-boy-network continues to prosper.
There is a case on it’s way back to the state supreme court, demanding that the state comply with it’s own laws. The plaintiffs already won there once but the state found a way not to follow the court’s ruling. –Mostly they ignored it.
So after hundreds of thousands of dollars the people involved get to spend even more money, because there is no penalty for anyone if the state employees decide not to follow the law. –Well isn’t that special.
I think he works for the folks who are suing the state of Nevada over a license they thought they deserved.
Yesterday was 420 and we all know what that means, but today has a special meaning too. 421 is surprise random drug test day.
I put the date in the title to remind myself when the last time was that I posted anything.
Some judge just ruled that you cannot be arrested for DUI if you’re smoking dope.
I didn’t bother with a link because his ruling has the life expectancy of a sickly housefly.
I’m no longer trying to keep up this blog because it was designed to support another site that’s going nowhere, because of business licensing problems.
I’m still going to post whatever catches my attention, but I’m not sure how often that’s going to happen.
Welcome to real life.
First, for those of you who are too fucked up to figure out the shamrocks post. Don’t bother smoking them, shamrocks are just clover, and if there was any trace of psychoactive ingredients there would be a lot more contented cows and that bull wouldn’t bother chasing you.
Now on to whatever:
Nevada legalized recreational marijuana could become active as early as July first, but there’s nothing definitive in the law to properly regulate it. Now Trump’s goons are out in force so we can count of legal harassment from the DEA.
Regardless of regs and enforcement the market her is much smaller than Colorado, Oregon or Washington. Personally, if I was selling it, I’d give out free samples. –I know, that’s undoubtedly illegal here but I’d try anyway.
The product now being sold is for the most part much stronger than the old strains. But, according to someone claims to know, the high you get from hot house Maui Wowee than the way different than the original strain that’s still being grown on Maui.
I figure it’s all that way. The current product is much to standardized to be anything but generic.
In honor of St Patrick’s Day, I pose a simple question.
Just asking. 😁
White House is very Anti-Marijuana.
This from press secretary Spicer.
“There’s a big difference between that [medical marijuana] and recreational marijuana,” said Spicer from the podium last week. “And when you see something like the opioid addiction crisis blossoming in so many states around this country, the last thing we want to be doing is encouraging people – there is still a federal law that we need to abide by when it comes to medical – in terms of recreational marijuana and other drugs of that nature. There’s a big difference between medical marijuana which states – in the states where that’s allowed in accordance with the appropriations rider have set forth a process to administer and regulate that usage versus recreational marijuana and that’s a very, very different subject.”
The Trump Whitehouse also implies that there is a link between the opioid problem and marijuana. In spite of numerous studies refuting his stand, Spicer insists on calling marijuana a gateway drug.
In fact some studies show that just the opposite is true.
In the meantime, if you watch the strong arm tactics employed by various agencies under the Trump administration, you can expect nothing but a continuation of the knuckle dragger approach to enforcement of antiquated laws.
Recreational marijuana is officially legal here in Nevada but the state still hasn’t figured out how to handle it.
There’s nothing new about that. Since there’s no penalty for ignoring the law, the little napoleons the run various state regulatory agencies work on the old boy network.
If you have friends in the right places, you can get a license even if you never open.
Welcome to Nevada. Where the law is considered more of a suggestion than something to be followed.
Someone said that President Trump behaves like a petulant child, and in my opinion they are absolutely correct. So what. He’s still the president.
I don’t care about the numbers, they only matter to sore losers and Trump’s ego.
He remains “President Trump” so get over it and get back to reality.
Always remember, he was elected because, on the whole, people are sick of the way this country is being run.
Maybe he’ll go down as the crappiest president in history, unless he gets impeached he’s still the boss.
Just not as much of a boss as he thinks he is.
Trump’s choice for Attorney General is Senator Jeff Sessions who seems to be planning on using audits of various state laws and marijuana programs to see how well they measure up to the eight strictures outlined in the 2013 Cole Memo.
In other words they can bring the whole thing to a screeching halt by the use of more bureaucratic bullshit that is supposed to be for our protection.
I don’t think they’ll ever quit fighting legalization. Hell, there are still dry counties all over the country.
I guess they’ll never quit trying to control how we think and what we do. Of course if they weren’t egomaniacal control freaks they’d never survive in politics, much less as the head cop.
