Welcome to the CannabisTube blog! Today is the official relaunch of the new and improved CannabisTube Network. Also, today and on this date in marijuana history:
Today, the Nevada Marijuana Legalization Initiative comes into force, permitting an adult to possess one ounce of processed marijuana. It also allows six plants in an enclosed space, with a household limit of 12 plants.
In 2015, Illinois amends its medical marijuana law to allow children under 18 years of age to be treated with edible marijuana and tinctures for the same medical conditions approved for adults. The law also specifically added seizures, including those caused by epilepsy, to the list of approved conditions.
In 2014, the first adult use sales of marijuana take place in Colorado at Northern Lights Cannabis Co. The day marks the nation’s first state-legal business transactions for non-medicinal (or “recreational”) marijuana. Business is brisk, with lines at dispensaries across the state.
Also in 2014, Illinois implements “Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act.”
California’s Senate Bill 420 takes effect on this day in 2004, establishing a patient identification card system - the “215 card” - and other statewide guidelines.
Pro-marijuana presidential candidate Gary Johnson, leader of the Libertarian Party, is born in 1953.
