And as of October 17th, 2018, all of Canada will go legal for recreational (medical has been legal since 2001). Canada will only be the second country to entirely legalize cannabis, after Uruguay - countries like the Netherlands have only decriminalized consumption, while keeping production illegal.Despite this, since cannabis is illegal federally in the United States, there have been reports of people who either work for or invest in legal Canadian cannabis companies (including publicly traded ones) being given lifetime bans on entering the United States. Not for bringing cannabis, just for being employed by a company that is legal in their own country. Canadians have also been turned away at the border for admitting they have consumed cannabis, and there is no plan with the current American administration to change any of this upon Oct 17th, which is when cannabis becomes as legal and accessible as alcohol in Canada.
I don't partake at all, but still it seems a bit weird that a government disallows it's people the use of a plant. They don't ban rose bushes but my life experience has proven that rose bushes are detrimental to my well being while marijuana is not.
You should check out coca and poppy plants as well. Tobacco and mais (by way of sugar) are more deadly still. Maybe it's the delayed damage these things do! With roses the sting is immediate. But it takes a person a long time to realize that one squanders money to actively support organized crime, just to get a really crappy buzz in a bout of teenage rebellion or early adulthood stupor.While the criminals themselves feed the prison industrial complex, for which a murky legal landscape may just be ideal.
and rose petal jam can be almost addictive.I-)
I'm a little unsure what you're trying to say -- but you seem to be suggesting that legalizing marijuana would actively support organized crime; but the exact opposite would be true.
I would be happy if Wisconsin would at least approve medical marijuana.I doubt it will happen but I can always hold out hope.
I'm a little disappointed so far, at least in the CBD pills/salve my brother bought me in Vermont in hopes it would help the pain from my fibro and psoriatic arthritis. It's possible that it's cumulative, so I'm going to continue to take one each day until all 30 are gone but I can't say I've felt any real pain relief. : ( Maybe the CBD extract isn't going to cut it . . . maybe I should go for just regular marijuana (in smoked or edible form) -- at least getting a little bit of euphoria/high from it might at least distract my brain from the pain! Or maybe I would still hurt but I wouldn't mind so much!
CBD products are available in Wisconsin -https://isthmus.com/arts/emphasis/cannabinoid-oil-cbd-legal/- but note some are derived from hemp rather than marijuana, so their potency may be different. And the production is not standardized or regulated, AFAIK, so it might be worthwhile trying to switch between various preparations.
