Legislative Proposal to Legalize Cannabis Filed in Louisiana, Would Allow Unlimited Possession * 2
    #773879 - 03/27/15 11:13 AM (2 years, 28 days ago)



Legislation louisiana to legalize recreational cannabis for those 21 and older has been filed in Louisiana’s House of Representatives.
House Bill 117, filed by Representative Dalton Honoré, would explicitly legalize the possession, use and distribution of cannabis for recreational purposes. The measure would establish no specific possession limits, meaning it would legalize the possession of an unlimited amount of cannabis. This is in contrast to many recent legalization efforts, but would put cannabis on the same field of legality as alcohol and tobacco, where any amount is legal to possess.
“Everybody wants to do this, but nobody wants to step forward, and this is why I want to take it to the people to vote,” says Representative Honoré.
Representative Honoré points to success that’s being had with legalization in Colorado; “The studies have shown over the past year that crime has gone down and traffic fatalities have gone down in the state, and Colorado has produced some $44 million from sales and taxes for the State of Colorado”.
According to the latest statistics from the Louisiana Department of Corrections from June 2013, there are 1,372 people serving sentences over marijuana possession charges.
“We still have the mentality to put them in jail, lock them up and throw away the key”, says Representative Honoré. “We incarcerate more persons per thousand than anywhere in the world, in Louisiana”.
House Bill 117 has been assigned to the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee. If approved into law, the measure would be put to a vote of the people during the 2016 general election ballot.

Recreational use should be 18+. If at 18 you are expected to be responsible enough to abide by all laws and are held just as accountable as an adult, I don't see why you would be restricted from cannabis.

Well, you're not expected to be responsible with intoxicants at 18, drinking age is still 21+ in USA.

RMJ is just following suit.

Using the word intoxicant really changed the whole perspective. I guess you're right when you say it like that. That does not justify it completely though. Alcohol is the only intoxicant legally consumable. Not a lot of things to compare to. Cannabis 'can' and should be allowed to be treated differently.

That it should be treated differently from alcohol is extremely fair to say. However I wasn't intending to justify it, I was just trying to lend some perspective. Either way, I suppose I'm looking at it from the bias of it's being treated more like alcohol to be an improvement- that might have influenced the way I made the statement.

edit: Besides, I think the 21 age limit is really just a good talking point for marijuana lobbyists. It makes the idea seem a lot less alien to legislators who already may feel iffy about cannabis, much less feeling like they're giving it to what they may well see as kids. The teen in Eighteen sounds a lot louder to some people than others. I'm just glad that it's making any kind of progress. I really didn't expect it to make the major headways it has on this agreeable a time-frame. I expected to be in diapers for my second time before legal marijuana became a reality haha.
