I am relatively lucky to live in a state that is full of awesome people with strong values. Both of us have been at the forefront of several positive social changes in this nation, especially before the movements started in adjacent areas. For instance, our home neighborhood implemented a marijuana decriminalization program back in the morning. They made it a $5 finet to be caught with minor amounts of cannabis, & the ticket was mailed to the offender’s property. This wasn’t the first instance of a city-wide decriminalization effort done in the country, but it became of the most notorious as critics tried to pin a tremendous amount of crime in the neighborhood on that law which had little effect among public opinion. In actuality, the law stayed around plus increased to $25 in 1990 when the fines were reviewed by the city. This state has both medical marijuana & recreational marijuana products at this point. Although medical marijuana patients spend our money lower prices at pot shops by avoiding state & neighborhood taxes, they also have to spend our money currency to the state every year to keep their card. There is a unique tradeoff, but anyone else can absolutely make their way into a pot shop & purchase products as long as they’re over the age of 21. In our state the taxes aren’t completely 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 too, with CA being a unique example. It makes myself and others seriously proud to be living in our new state knowing that marijuana would only get more fancy if I chose to transfer to the west.
