    It's a transitional period. Most issues will sort themselves out over time or be actively sorted out.

    Right? Far more concerned about the driving and texting I see everywhere. If someone wants to get baked watching a movie at home, more power to em.

    Florida approved medical MJ a few years ago. One of the largest personal injury firms in the country is located here, and they spent millions of dollars on PR pushing legalization. The thought is next election they'll spend enough to get it pushed through.

    I've pondered this for some time. And also: do cops in illegal states set up at the border to stop cars from their state coming from legal states? Revenue bonanza.

    It took a few rounds to get it passed in California. I'm sure it'll get thru there in some form eventually.

    You are always subject to the laws of the state you're in. If it's illegal in your state it's illegal even if you purchased it legally in another state. My friend in CO. has a little tin box where he has a bunch of bags of different kinds of weed that visitors purchased and couldn't bring home.

    Yes, you can buy weed in a state that you do not live in....but there is a limit to the quantity....I believe an oz. is the max for out of staters. Now, this doesn't mean that you can legally bring it back into the state that you live in, if it's illegal there. My friend was recently in Great Barrington Mass. buying legal weed and he told me that more than half the license plates of the cars in the lot were NY. So....you are breaking the law if you buy weed in Mass and then drive it back to NY where it's illegal. I drove back and forth to Colorado not long ago, from NY, and on my way back, crossing into Nebraska, I half expected to see a line of troopers waiting to pull people over....but there were none.

    I just heard on the radio that Illinois citizens will be able to have/buy 1 ounce of marijuana and non-residents 5 grams, so I'm assuming that means that they will be able to sell to non-residents...
    Logistically that couldn't be done...there are just way too many cars going back and forth from Illinois and all of it's surrounding states to stop all of the non-Illinois cars.
    "Marijuana card".....?
    Yeah, I said that back in post #38....

    They don't really hang out at the borders pulling people over in the hopes of a big take down in my experience.

    I see that you are out in the desert there....are there any shops in P.S or in the Indio, Joshua Tree area?

    Some states have "Agricultural Checkpoints" but I believe they're more focused on keeping things like fruit flies from crossing borders. I have noticed some states have way more police presence out on the highways than others. I took a massive multistate road trip a few years back & didn't notice a single cop in my entire drive thru Idaho, but as soon as I hit the middle of nowhere Nevada border at Jackpot there were cops every few minutes all the way to Reno.

    What ever happened the the notion that pot was a gateway drug to harder drugs?

    There will definitely be supply issues for IL but it will get better with time. OH/IN won't budge ever most likely. OH created some of the dumber medical legislative I've seen. I don't smoke but I'm all for any revenue help.
