I don’t know about you guys, but I am still celebrating that marijuana is really legal in the states of Washington and Colorado. Now, I must wait for my state of Virginia to catch up. News is coming out about the details in the laws that passed.
In Colorado, 55% of the voters decided in favor of Amendment 64. This amendment makes it legal for adults over 21 years of age to have up to one ounce of marijuana and/or growing up to six plants. Amendment 64 also clears the way for state government to come up with laws governing the commercial production of marijuana and sales of it in licensed stores The state has one year to come up with these rules and regulations.
In Washington, Initiative 502 was passed. This initiatives clears the way for adults over 21 years old to possess up to one ounce of marijuana. But that is not all! Adults can have up to 16 ounces of a marijuana product in solid form (I’m thinking brownies). Washingtonians can have in their possession 72 ounces of a product in liquid form. (Tea anyone?)This will take effect in only 30 days! As with Colorado, Washington law makers are working on a way to legalize commercial production and how to license retailers.
