By Donna Westfall – Naovember 15, 2016 – Can anybody now go into a dispensary and buy pot?
What? But Prop 64 passed legalizing recreational sales. California, Massachusettes and Nevada all legalized marijuana on Tuesday, November 8th, joining 4 states that already legalized it: Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
What happens next? A new government agency has to be set-up which is to be called appropriately enough: Bureau of Marijuana Control.
They have until January 2018 to develop rules for retailers and other ganja suppliers.
Pressure is now on the Federal government to treat cannabis like alcohol, allowing each state to decide on its own regulations.
