I am lucky to live in a state that is full of charming people with strong values.
Both of us have been at the forefront of many positive social changes in this country, especially before the movements absorbed into adjacent areas. For instance, our home town implemented a marijuana decriminalization program in the early 1973sâ€¦ They made it a $5 fine to be caught with petty amounts of cannabis, plus the ticket was mailed to the offender’s house. This wasn’t the first instance of a city-wide decriminalization effort done in the United States, but it became of the most notorious as critics tried to pin a wave of crime in the town on that law which had little effect among public opinion! In reality, the law reMEd plus only saw an increase to $25 in 1990 when the fines were reviewed by the city. This state has both medical marijuana plus recreational marijuana at this pointâ€¦ Although medical marijuana patients spend our money lower prices at cannabis stores by avoiding state plus town taxes, they also have to spend our money currency to the state every year to keep their card. There is a tradeoff, but anyone else can walk into a dispensary plus purchase products as long as they’re over the age of 21. In our state the taxes aren’t too crazy yet, but some areas in CA have combined taxes of over 26% on all recreational marijuana sales; Some states also tax medical marijuana purchases as well, with CA being one such example. It makes myself and others proud to be living in our new state knowing that marijuana would only get more extravagant if I moved out west.
