Nevada lawmakers back blood-only detection of marijuana DUIs
Only alcohol beats Marijuana in being the most popular mood-altering and recreational drug used across the world. Drying and shredding of the 'hemp' plant is how marijuana is produced. It is the presence of a primary active ingredient called THC present in marijuana that causes conditions like loss of inhibition, elation and distorted sense of time. It may also result in temporary increase in visual sensibility and imaginative abilities.
Although marijuana is considered as one of the major addiction causing substances around the world, its medicinal values cannot be ignored. Under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, the United States Federal Law made it illegal to either buy, sell, possess, cultivate or use marijuana in the country. It was classified as a Schedule 1 drug meaning it had potential for abuse and no acceptable medicinal value.
But according to extensive research, Marijuana is one of the most therapeutically active substances having a lot of pathological benefits. When marijuana is used for medical purposes, in regulated dosage as a pathological drug, it is considered to have significant medical values for patients who suffer from cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain. Despite smoked cannabis not being approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration under the federal government, a lot of research and studies have established the vast number of medicinal properties that the substance has manifested in pathological conditions.
The federal government of the United States of America has not legalized any usage of marijuana, even in the form of medicinal dosage. However, out of the 50 states in the Union, currently 13 states have passed laws for compassionate use of marijuana in the form of cannabis for medicinal therapy. These states include Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. But it must be kept in mind that the residents of the particular state are allowed to possess and use medical marijuana only within the state boundaries of their nativity. Apart from these, 17 other states and the District of Columbia have legislated to recognize the medicinal value of marijuana. But the state does not undertake to protect its citizens from federal legislation.
Goal is for July 1 retail marijuana sales, Nevada official says
Marijuana dispensaries may start selling recreational weed within Nevada as soon as July 1, the state tax board voted Monday, six months earlier than previously expected. While Nevadans voted last November in favor of legalizing marijuana, lawmakers aren’t expected to draft rules governing the state’s recreational weed program until January 2018. With medical marijuana dispensaries already legally operating across the state, however, the Nevada Tax Commission on Monday voted 6-1 in favor of granting temporary retail licenses to currently existing pot shops. Monday’s decision means licensed medical-marijuana dispensaries in Nevada can submit applications to the state Department of Taxation starting May 15 seeking permission to sell their wares to patrons other than patients. Dispensaries deemed to be in good standing with the state are expected to receive the first temporary licenses July 1, at which point they’ll be legally allowed to serve medical and recreational weed customers alike. Temporary retail licenses will expire January 2018, giving the state several months to study the immediate impact of legalizing marijuana before finalizing the framework for its voter-approved recreational weed program. Indeed, politicians have said they expect retail weed will do wonders for Nevada’s coffers, provided of course its recreational pot program gets off the ground without a hitch. Gov. Brian Sandoval said he intends for recreational marijuana to rake in $70 million within its first two years, the likes of which may not be easily achievable unless some pot shops are given a head-start. “If we don’t adopt the regulations, we will not have a temporary program. If we don’t have a temporary program, we will not have the revenue that’s included in the governor’s budget,” Deonne Contine, the director of the state Department of Taxation, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Nonetheless, medical dispensaries across the state are hardly guaranteed a business boom as a result of Monday’s vote: marijuana retailers in Nevada require approval from both state and local officials to operate, but not all jurisdictions have given the green-light just yet to recreational marijuana. While Clark County and its largest city, Las Vegas, plan to license pot shops July 1, Henderson — the state’s second most-populous city — previously passed a moratorium barring any pot shops from opening until at least August, the Review-Journal reported. Nevada and three other states voted last November to approve recreational marijuana, bringing the total number of states to legalize weed to nine, including Washington, D.C., notwithstanding weed remaining a Schedule I narcotic, according to the federal government.
