USA Elections 2020 - Greenwave wins big!

By: Zona Sur

Looks like Trump is activating the Supreme Court to crush the opposition. Democrats never got their "blue wave". It was more of an ankle slapper. At least there was one clear winner this 2020 election. Marijuana!! Yes the green wave is roaring loud and clear.

New Jersey passed recreational, adult-use marijuana:
"The vote allows New Jersey officials to begin the thorny, potentially lengthy process of establishing rules related to regulating and testing cannabis and issuing licenses, including how many permits to grant, and to whom."
It also instantly raises the ante for neighboring states like New York and Pennsylvania, increasing pressure on lawmakers who support legalization to take action or risk losing the competitive edge to New Jersey in what is expected to be one of the largest marijuana markets in the country.

In Arizona:
"Proposition 207xx legalizes marijuana possession and use for adults 21 or older, and allows individuals to grow up to six cannabis plants. It charges the Arizona Department of Health Services with licensing and regulating marijuana businesses, from retailers to growers, and imposes a 16 percent tax on sales. Local governments can ban marijuana businesses within their borders, however. It also lets people with marijuana-related criminal records petition for expungement."

And Montana too.

Meanwhile, Mississippi passed medical marijuana:
"The outcome means Mississippians with debilitating medical conditions will be able to get medical marijuana with a doctor*s approval. Initiative 65 requires the medical marijuana program to be running by August 2021."

And South Dakota passed recreational and medical marijuana:
"The recreational measure, which is a constitutional amendment, will make it so people 21 and older will be able to possess and distribute up to one ounce of marijuana, and they will also be allowed to cultivate up to three cannabis plants. Upon formal passage, legalization will become the law on July 1, 2021. The Department of Revenue will be charged with developing licensing regulations by April 1, 2022."

There is something we can all agree on... Keep it Green babies!!!

Thank you
