Cannabis Prohibition Cracking Along the Mississippi

The states touching the Mississippi River are some deeply conservative areas of our nation.  Even here cannabis re-legalization is making inroads on a variety of fronts.  Let’s travel north-to-south.

MINNESOTA: Intractable pain patients are now eligible to participate in the state’s medical cannabis program, following legal changes that took effect this week. State health officials announced their intent to expand the program to include chronic pain patients late last year.

ILLINOIS:   Republican Governor Bruce Rauner signed legislation on Friday amending the state’s marijuana possession penalties.  Senate Bill 2228 reduces the penalties for the possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana from a criminal misdemeanor (formerly punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,500 fine) to a civil fine of no more than $200 – no arrest and no criminal record.  It also decriminalizes related offenses involving the possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

ARKANSAS:  Will competing initiatives make peace?  “Concerned patients and supporters of the Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act (AMCA), which has already been certified to appear on the November ballot, are calling on the for-profit group, Arkansans United for Medical Marijuana to forego turning in any remaining signatures on their initiated amendment, inviting them to join their team instead. ”

The impact of any of the heartland states re-legalizing is hard to over-estimate.
