Someone has to be at the end of the line. One of the original “decriminalized” states — North Carolina — is going to go kicking and screaming into the future. Here’s why I say that:
[NC] House Bill 983 exempts patients engaging in the physicians-recommended use of cannabis to treat a chronic or terminal illness from criminal prosecution under state law. Qualifying patients must possess a tax stamp issued by the state department of Revenue, and may possess no more than three ounces of cannabis at any one time.
The proposal does not permit patients to cultivate their own cannabis, nor does it establish a state-licensed supply source.
. . .
Existing law proposing qualifying patients to possess cannabidiol-infused products (but providing no in-state supply source) has proven to be unworkable.

Back in the 1970’s to be “decriminalized” meant you could not go to jail on your first arrest for simple possession. That’s all it meant. I live in North Carolina, the place where your papers must be in order if you are forced to use a public restroom. It is going to be pure joy to watch the people who run this place (at the moment) give in on the cannabis question. They will give in. Sadly, just not a quickly as I would wish.
