Let's draft some state cannabis law

Montana has already trained a generation of growers. The state enjoys numerous brewery pubs and wine tasting venues for local product.

Let's assume that after President Obama is elected to his second term Health and Humans Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius announces soon afterwards that cannabis has been removed from Schedule 1:
The HHS Secretary can even unilaterally legalize cannabis: "[I]f the Secretary recommends that a drug or other substance not be controlled, the Attorney General shall not control the drug or other substance."
a federal tax rate is adopted; and, she proposes that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives become the lead agency in enforcement provided that states can craft law to cultivate and distribute.

I've proposed that Deadwood get out ahead and draft legislation to make it a cannabis friendly zone in its quest to become an adult destination.

Assuming that home growing law looks like home brewing and wine making, what would state law need to include about liability insurance requirements for commercial resale and how would law enforcement be guided by probable cause?

You dont get it do you? Obomba is a part of this corpocracy and he gonna do what they wish! Do you think that the drug and alcohol companies are going to let that happen? Not unless Ron Paul and some other liberty oriented people can throw a wrench in the system. Peace bro

Anon beat me to it.

Obomba's a liar. He had opportunity to do the right thing with any number of issues . . . and he totally blew every single one.

Predict this battle will go on for a long time, with a lot of folks that only want to live their lives in peace getting slammed by the "system".

The fascists will hand MMJ to big pharma - when they feel the time is right.

Bummer, ain't it?
