As someone from indiana surrounded by MI, IL, and OH it doesnt change anything. Im moving to NC soon I can only hope the state gets more progressive and things start getting better there.

NC resident here, it will be years and years before they approve it. Basically the old guard needs to die off and then we have a shot. Just grow it yourself.

Try being in Texas. Surrounded by legal states. Even Mexico has it legalized.

In North Carolina police have the option to ticket you or take you jail.

Hell we just got beer in my county TEN years ago. If it hadn't been for the wineries getting wine in and then investing in micro breweries, we still wouldn't have beer. You would think that the NC farmers would have some interest, but doesn't seem to be the case. I doubt it will happen. Have to get the winery crowd to approve first.

How far did people have to drive to get beer in your county? Tell us more about your experience with this nonsense. There must be a reddit for this.

The prices at the start for legal weed will be sky high so the market for illegal stuff will probably continue on for a while, but as competition ramps up and prices drop to Colorado levels, well. An ounce of good stuff in Missouri now is $520 (legal), $280 (street) and in CO it's $180. Long term it will go down. How long until the long term? I have no idea.

$500 for an ounce is straight up robbery.

I think, you are desperate for progress and hoping something gives. Don't get too happy the legalization in Virginia which looks to be scheduled to take place 3 fucking years from now even if it passes this year.

Wrong. It will be 2024 before dispensaries will open their doors because of permits, contracts, and other minor details. As far as possessing marijuana, it will be legal by this summer.

Actually, it’s already passed in Virginia. Granted the sales end of things is scheduled to happen in either 2023, or 2024. But who’s having a hard time finding weed anyways? The hold up is that they are working on a finalized legislation to lay on the governors desk. SB 1406 and HB 2312 are almost identical except for a few points. Those points are the ones they’re trying to compromise on. Mind you though, none of them are deal breakers. They’re just minor details of when and who more or less. So yes, don’t get too excited just yet about Virginia, we’re a couple years out from retail sales. Again though, who’s having a hard time finding weed?!

I've noticed the quality has dropped significantly. Also a lot of medical dispensaries are going recreational in my area too. Limiting med options. Most the med dispensaries left are charging rec prices. Suuuuuuucks.
