Even a child with little political or public policy experience arrives at the same conclusion, “The United States government needs to come clean about its marijuana usage’.

In 1984, more than 50 years after the repeal of the 18th amendment, the United States enacted the Federal Uniform Drinking Age Act that established the minimum legal drinking age as 21 years old. Most every state now abides by that standard. The federal government may withhold federal funding if a state does not abide by this minimum standard.

Prior to the 1984 passage, a team of researchers analyzed the various and unique state laws regulating alcohol before their findings were eventually shared with members of Congress. That same level of study in to the varying state marijuana laws by the US Government is happening right now.

On the US Governments webpage dedicated to the Federal Uniform Drinking Act exists detailed State-by-State information regarding the Recreational Use of Cannabis. Coincidence?

The policy variables addressed in Recreational Use of Cannabis: Volume 1 include:

  • Legalization of recreational use;
  • State agency(ies) with authority to regulate recreational use;
  • Products permitted;
  • Cultivation restrictions;
  • Jurisdictions providing for retail sales for on or off-premises use;
  • Jurisdictions with pricing controls;
  • Tax rates;
  • Prohibitions on underage purchase, possession, consumption, and furnishing;
  • Prohibitions on impaired driving; and
  • The extent of local authority.

The policy variables addressed in Recreational Use of Cannabis: Volume 2 include:

  • Legalization of recreational use;
  • Prohibition of “vertical integration”;
  • Entities that make up the cannabis distribution system;
  • Requirements for a seed-to-sale or inventory tracking system;
  • Restrictions on the use of pesticides, and testing for the presence of pesticides;
  • Health and/or safety-related warning requirements on labels or packaging;
  • Requirements applicable to the physical packaging of recreational cannabis products;
  • Restrictions on the advertising of recreational cannabis products;
  • Restrictions on public consumption of cannabis;
  • Provisions governing home delivery of cannabis; and
  • Restrictions on open containers of cannabis in the passenger compartments of motor vehicles.

In addition, APIS has developed the Cannabis Policy Taxonomy (CPT), an inventory and taxonomy of cannabis policies. What is Uncle Sam up to?

    Yep. Once again NO MENTION of the fact that EVERY body’s Endo-Cannabinoid System **REQUIRES*** the Cannabinoids found in a GLASS of RAW CANNABIS juice – NOT smoked. If the Govt actually did their science research it would know that.

    ONCE AGAIN ill-formed, GREED-based LIES render the REAL MEDICINAL parts *INACCESSIBLE and **ILLEGAL to the very people who NEED it to LIVE .

    Cannabis is NOT a crime and ill-advised laws do not make it so.

    It is not a “white male privilege” nor a “recreational drug”. And it is NODOBY’s damn business!

    It is Nature’s BEST healing sacred plant AND represents our **INALIENABLE HUMAN RIGHT to *choose AND **grow our own medicine – FREE from Govt tyranny terrorism lies & police intervention.

    For the Healing of Our Nations – ***ALL** forms of cannabis PROHIBITION (including *legalization) must end. It is NON-NEGOTIABLE.

    Remember it’s “The American Way” …. Good people DISOBEY bad laws. Let’s *punish & imprison the BAD-law makers instead… ? Let them reap what THEY sow, so to speak and let us reap ours…

    Puff puff pass…
