Here’s another state from the old confederacy — Louisiana — inching closer to the decision to re-legalize cannabis.
Legislation has been pre-filed in the House to place the issue of depenalizing marijuana on the electoral ballot.
House Bill 117, if enacted, would place the following question before voters: “Shall the possession, distribution, or dispensing of marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinols, or chemical derivatives thereof by persons twenty-one years of age or older no longer be a criminal offense in the state of Louisiana?”
The bill further states, “If a majority of the qualified electors of the election area voting on the proposition approve the proposition, then the possession, distribution, or dispensing of marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinols, or chemical derivatives thereof by persons twenty-one years of age or older shall no longer be a criminal offense subject to law subsequently enacted to provide for the regulation and taxation of marijuana sales.”
Louisiana is #14 in the nation in per capita cannabis arrests. This state walking away from prohibition would be significant. To review the House Bill for yourself GO HERE.
