You do realize people will seek care instead of hiding it for fear of being arrested.. so no the exact opposite will actually happen

I'm sure it all depends on the amount. Anything under x amount is a misdemeanor and considered for personal use and anything over x amount is a felony and considered possession with intent

Finally some movement towards what works well in other countries. It will be abolished if Session's and Trump get their way. Prohibition increases disease and drug morbidity stastics, provides poor mental health outcomes, and diminishes the opurtunity to educate or rehabilitate. People will get high either way, the hydra will grow heads back everytime the govt beheads one. Legalise all natural substances and let people live how they wish.


IMO if the state wants to do it,have at it.I would advise Trump and Sessions to keep their noses out of it.If this does go sideways,the state can rescind this faster than at the Federal level.

This is the right thing to do. It's the cartels and government drug enforcement agencies that are so corrupted to keep it taboo and expensive on the black market.

Users of drugs need to be rehabbed, not locked up. One young mistake shouldn't destroy life for decades.
