    Do Nevada or California have public recreational dispensaries?
    We have dozens of them in my neck of the woods, but I believe some areas of California have nowhere near that, if at all.
    I thought he meant government (public) run stores? Do any states have those?

    Just out of curiosity, can you transport Cannabis across state lines?  For example, If I bought weed in Nevada can I travel to Cali or is that a no-no because it's still illegal federally.

    You read my mind lol
    I bet it's illegal.  Normally, I wouldn't think twice, but I read something about a checkpoint when you enter California on 395.
    I've never encountered a state line checkpoint so obviously I'm out of my element here Donny.

    No, it isn't legal to transport weed from state to state.
    But it will be legalized federally soon enough, unless the American people REALLY fuck things up.

    The answer is no.

    Can You Legally Transport Cannabis Across State Lines?
    https://www.leafly.com/news/cannabis-101/can-you-transport-cannabis-between-two-legal-states

    Despite federal risks, however, the reality may be a bit more reassuring. “In practice, the chances of feds or the DEA sitting at the border waiting to catch someone–that’s just not happening,” she points out. “It’s not practical or worth their time.”

    Interestingly, you can bring it on airlines if you're flying within CA.  Say from SanFran to LA.

    How do you pass through security, though? Even domestic security will include passengers going all over the country, to non-legal states.

    Poll after poll has indicated that the America people want it legalized.  Yet it remains illegal.   Big Pharma is never going to stop padding the pockets of politicians to keep it illegal.  Both Republicans and Democrats are guilty in denying people the right to spark up without the fear of prosecution.  If Obama did not have the balls to remove Cannabis as a controlled substance, the Americans might be waiting awhile.

    Poll after poll shows that the American people don't want trump in office either, but there he is.

    It isn't just pharmaceutical companies, it's fear of the conservative voter.

    There are plenty of republicans and especially libertarians that want to see it legalized.  I strongly feel big pharma is the main culprit.  They are definitely not the only major industry  that have a lot to lose if marijuana and hemp become mainstream, though.

    All any president has to is remove it as a controlled substance, at least that's my understanding.  Neither the republicans or the democrats at the federal level have acted on it.

    Big pharma is definitely the major lobbying group to keep it illegal.  And plenty of conservatives partake in enjoying Cannabis.  It will likely have to come from the state levels.

    If a bit of tactic was used to stroke the ego of Trump, letting him know that he would be a “hero” for declassifying it, his narcissistic personality could not hold back.

    LOL.  Maybe he will be the one to declassify it...likely not.

    If TSA finds it, they call the local police over.  Local police check departure and destination are inside CA, and quantity is legal. Then send you on your way

    No, the politicians who Americans keep voting in are the main culprit. It's not like big pharma has guns to all their heads. They are the ones choosing to bend over for the pharma companies, as well as the textile and agricultural players, from what I gather. Americans could start voting in politicians who don't bend over, but enough of them choose not to. However, I think eventually both the politicians and the voters will learn their lessons... They're both slow as fucking molasses, and almost always seem to take one step forward and two steps back, but now that other countries are finally learning their own lessons and going for it, I think the US will almost be forced into their own revelation on this one.

    My embarrassing country does this to kids with servre epilepsy also.
    Parents in Canada and the US claim Cannabis helps with epilepsy.  Charlottes Web is the strain that parents have had a lot of success in limiting seizures.  Denying Cannabis to a terminal patient just makes zero sense.  
  • Exactly zero sence at all
     When my dad's gardener was in a hospice terminal with days to live he asked my dad to get him some weed . Now my dad is anti drugs as he would call it. But he did it. And the gardener said it made his last days a bit more bare able and was better than any medication. If you are terminal or even having seizures 20 times a day what possible reason can they have not to ethically help. Bastards

    Legal cannabis shortages could last years: expert

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/legal-cannabis-shortages-could-last-years-expert-1.4291075?fbclid=IwAR3KUh_SviiX-SETflTzBof9PmsTQsfMoQvhm-ikmzkJ1fQbk8A6mFUJUyY

    Despite the shortages, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Bill Blair said he’s confident the plan is on track.

    Bill Blair is an idiot.  The Black Market will thrive more than ever now.  I am glad it will, as long as the greedy government is in charge I will always root for the black market.
