Indiana could become the next state to have legal adult use recreational cannabis. State Senator Karen Tallian, D-Ogden Dunes of Indiana has filed the appropriate legislation to begin this process. Senate Bill 213 could become law in 2019 allowing Hoosiers to have up to 2 oz of cannabis on their possession for recreational consumption. It won’t be an easy battle in the general assembly which is currently, Republican-controlled but the people of the state of Indiana have expressed an abundance of support for legal recreational cannabis.
You might say it’s at an “all-time high” as the media is having so much fun with. A telephone poll conducted by Answers Network Inc discovered that randomly selected Hoosiers favored recreational cannabis legalization by 8 out of 10. The will of the people will have to be met by the elected officials in the state of Indiana. Indiana does not have a ballot initiative instead any cannabis laws would have to pass through the legislature. Along with Senate Bill 213, Tallion presented Senate Bill 211. Senate Bill 211 would establish an official cannabis compliance commission to oversee the state’s regulations including the use, consumption, and sales of legal cannabis.
Medical Cannabis Could Also Be Coming to the Hoosier State
Tallian is covering all grounds. She’s currently drafting a measure that would allow the state of Indiana access for residents to legal medical cannabis as well. The state of Indiana like so many other stands to benefit significantly from legalizing adult-use cannabis and medical cannabis. The continued criminalization of this plant is destroying the lives of citizens and the great state of Indiana for no apparent reason other than draconian law. While more than half of America has some form of legal cannabis, many states in the Midwest and southern parts of America are still clinging to the draconian ways of the past. When will this thinking end? When will America become America again? It’s time these lawmakers stop dividing a united country.
