Thank goodness that this failed in NJ

We seem to have one of the best liberal Democratic parties, constantly holding back far-left legislation, good. I feel bad for those in CA and CO, who actually have to deal with this horrendous policy.

Not funny.

NJ got cold feet, it seems.

Next year, perhaps?

Ugh. The one area of policy I actually supported Murphy in.

New Mexico ran out of time this session to do full legalization but MLG says that it will be towards the top of the list of stuff to do next year. Thereís a bill thatís passed the house to decriminalize it and do some stuff on the medical end.

Illinois Senate passes bill legalizing recreational marijuana use

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/446155-illinois-senate-passes-bill-legalizing-recreational-marijuana-use

Quote
The Illinois Senate on Tuesday passed legislation that would legalize recreational use of marijuana.

The state chamber passed the measure in a 38-17 vote on Wednesday. The bill now heads to the state House for consideration.

Under the measure, also called the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, the state would legalize the “use of cannabis" for "persons 21 years of age or older and should be taxed in a manner similar to alcohol.”

The bill would allow “legitimate, taxpaying business people” to conduct sales of cannabis and that “selling, distributing, or transferring cannabis to minors and other persons under 21 years of age” would remain illegal.

Similar to how the law applies to alcohol, people would also be legally required under the new measure to “show proof of age before purchasing cannabis” and would be prohibited from driving under the influence of the cannabis.

Not 100% on it but I think part of the compromise was that only people with a medical marijuana card can grow their own at home.

Hopefully he blocks it


He should do at least one good thing for Illinois, and that good thing is blocking marijuana access (which should be illegal nationwide)

It's funny because you're one of the people who could benefit from a joint the most.

Why do Republicans hate freedom so much?

Either way, excellent news, especially after NJ sh**t the bead.

"I support the way things are because that's the way things are!" "If something is illegal, it must stay illegal because it is illegal!" Two fallacies in one, impressive.

Jared Polis signed six marijuana-related bills in Colorado yesterday, including a bill that lets businesses apply for a permit to allow consumption on their property.  The measures will have to be approved by local governments.

It doesn't look like legalization is on the table in NY this year.  Cuomo says the votes aren't there in the Senate just yet and the session ends in just twelve days, although Cuomo as well as the Speaker and Majority Leader have been blamed for the bill stalling.

New York, like New Jersey, has awful politics, so sadly this doesn't surprise me.

Could be not enough time to actually get those deals done to make it happen in the time remaining, but yes, you're right.

On this issue I'm not so sure. The people blocking it are among his traditional allies, but they're blocking it for reasons of their own.

Appears there might be a slim chance for NY to do something about marijuana this session.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem legalization is on the horizon in my state where the Republicans still control the Upper Chamber. I believe they actually blocked a Senate bill earlier this year.

It is amazing how Republican politicians are in opposition to even a lot of their own supporters.
