    Wait, cocaine is legal in Oregon now? (This is what I just read on Facebook)

    Not legal, just decriminalized possession. Manufacture and Distribution are still felonies. Possession is a misdemeanor and not an arrestable offense now.

    So the meme I read that said cocaine is legal in Oregon but straws aren't was misleading??

    It blows my mind how many people in this country don’t understand the difference between decriminalization and legalization

    Oregon didn't outlaw straws, they banned restaurants from putting them in drinks without being asked by the customer for a straw.

    We did completely ban plastic grocery bags though.

    Prior to the pandemic, they were charging 5 cents each for a paper bag, or you could bring your own reusable bags. Then they decided they didn't want people bringing their nasty fabric bags into the grocery store and started giving away the paper bags for free again.

    Denver did the same


    Denver’s upcoming 10-cent fee for single-use plastic bags won’t start for more than a year, City Council unanimously agreed Monday.

    The fees were set to begin July 1 after the council approved them in December. But the council unanimously voted to push that start to July 1, 2021, as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

    More than 2/3 of the 58 million people living in the northeast will live in legal states with NY finally getting on board

    Looking forward to getting incredibly high this evening via some Sunset Sherbert

    I wonder what will happen with federal legalization and state illegality. Will someone be able to send stuff via the federal postal service, or would the strictest law between the two take precedent?

    Maybe this helps win over some GOP senators? You'd think AZ, MT and SD going along would help too

    Supremacy clause means that shit is legal everywhere immediately. Same reason that gay marriage was legal in every state when the Supreme Court decision came down.

    It's the same reason why state legality is so tenuous. The feds could, at any time, decide to enforce the federal prohibition and the states could do fuckall about it.

    Of course the actual state market regulation would vary so it's not all going to be equally accessible but at least you won't go to jail for it.

    When the senate majority leader and Charles Koch are both on the same side (and you have the house and the presidency) it seems more likely than it doesn't, to me.

    It seems like koch is more important than any of the others, but he's also a known lying shithead, so I'll believe it when I see it

    When billionaires start throwing their weight around in America, as fuck up as it is, things tend to happen. If real money gets behind it it's just a matter of time.

    Part of the article that was of particular interest was they support open markets and low tax rates. I see what they're doing.

    The MORE Act (passed by the House in Dec. 2020) only removed cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act and did not affirmatively legalize it. So, if enacted, under the 10th Amendment state law would control. So state laws criminalizing cannabis would remain in effect, and states that legalize it would also remain in effect. As far as I am aware, whether federal proposals will go beyond the MORE Act isn't yet known.

    Enough dominos have fallen in the form of states going medical/rec that the Kochs of the world know it's a losing battle and might as well shift to the other side to start making money on it. The Morgan and Morgan guy in FL made huge pushes in FL for it cause his Dad had glaucoma, yada yada but I heard he had grow facilities ready to go the moment they passed it. This could have been a bs rumor but he for sure had commercials running constantly advocating for it.

    Isn't the biggest deal with that being opening the industry up to banking?

    That was a separate bill that’d be an intermediate step toward legalization. I think
