    Should be relatively accessible in texas next week. Anyone planning on signing up?

    My quick research tells me that you can get the card pretty easily via televisits, but it's gonna be pricey. Normal range is $150-200 for the initial visit, $100-150 for required follow-ups (1-2x per year), and the products themselves are a good 6-7x as expensive as Colorado recreational prices for a lower potency.

    The potency cap doubles next week as well (to a still low amount). I'll probably take the leap if the edible prices don't double.

    Definitely appears to be the most economical option. I don't think I'll have that kind of time for the next year or two. Although bets are off if OK or AR go rec in 2022.

    Yeah, still pretty weak. But it looks like even CO generally sells 10mg edibles, which is what they'll be. And tinctures are easy to take more of. It'll just be expensive for normal users. Better than nothing, right?

    I suppose. Not that it will matter in Texas immediately but I believe Biden is holding legalization in his back pocket for 2022. Probably just wishful thinking.

    If democracy worked he’d have the numbers. It’s widely popular across the US. If our representatives voted for what their constituents wanted the country would be a much better place. But alas lobbyists run this country.

    If they decriminalize, allow for banking, and allow them to list on US exchanges that will be enough.

    Schumer seems to want to block incremental progress and now you have republicans seizing the opportunity to take the issue away from them and push it forward

    Mississippi MM bill was signed today. Not as expansive as the ballot initiative the SC overturned last year but still relatively open and passed both houses with surprisingly overwhelming margins. It was over 90% which I read somewhere is higher than any other legislature that has passed a MM bill. Probably the biggest difference in this bill and the previous initiative is that it allows individual municipalities to opt out which I anticipate a fair number will do but there is a provision that allows citizens to petition for an election and potentially override the opt out. Fairly wide range of qualifying conditions including chronic pain and ptsd. Allows for up to 3 oz a month.

    More specifically on the obtainable amounts, the law defines a Mississippi Medical Cannabis Equivalency Unit (MMCEU) as:
    3.5 grams of flower
    1 gram of concentrate
    100 mg of THC in an infused product.
    A patient can purchase no more than six MMCEU’s in a one week period and 24 MMCEU’s in a 30 day period. The potency limits are 30% THC for flower and 60% THC for concentrate.

    100 mg of edible is considered equivalent to an eighth of flower? Didn’t realize that

    Arkansas is looking to go recreational. Sadly, Texas will never even have medical. I’d just have to load up when I visit family.

    Come on down to scenic Mississippi, it allows for nonresidents to apply for a card up to 30 days before they visit.

    Shit I didn’t even think of that for Arkansas. I’ve mentioned it but I’m still an Arkansas resident technically because I haven’t ever messed with changing over to Texas because it’s a pain in the ass to get tags and driver license.

    3.5g = 3500mg

    20% thc x 3500mg = 700mg thc in flower at that potency.

    20% could ballpark be considered the median potency you see (it's probably higher than that but that just makes for easy math and I feel is close enough). With flower you probably aren't actually consuming every last mg of THC so it probably works

    Schumer is the biggest roadblock. He is standing in the way of any incremental progress.

    Let the fucking Safe Banking Act go to a vote ffs

    He could easily get 5, and if he put it an actual vote he might be able to pressure more to support something the public overwhelmingly supports, but he's too busy bending over to big pharma.

    because having a failed cloture vote isn't remotely useful as a messaging tool

    especially for something as minor as weed banking

    Not on an individual basis. There are various levels of manufacturing licenses, I think the smallest is 1000 or 1500 sq ft of canopy.
