Mississippi: Supreme Court Nullifies Voter-Approved Medical Cannabis Initiative

The Mississippi Supreme Court ruled 6 to 3 in favor of overturning a November 2020 vote legalizing the production and dispensing of medical cannabis to qualified patients. On Election Day, 73 percent of Mississippi voters decided in favor of Initiative 65, which establishes a system of state-licensed dispensaries to engage in the retail dispensing of cannabis and cannabis products to patients who possess a doctor’s authorization. Just prior to the vote, officials representing the city of Madison – including the town’s Mayor – filed suit arguing that the legislature’s failure to update guidelines for petitioners should invalidate the initiative vote. The Supreme Court decision states, “Whether with intent, by oversight, or for some other reason, the drafters of section 273(3) wrote a ballot-initiative process that cannot work in a world where Mississippi has fewer than five representatives in Congress. To work in today’s reality, it will need amending—something that lies beyond the power of the Supreme Court.” Specifically, state statutes call for petitioners to gather an equal percentage of signatures from five congressional districts.  However, following redistricting in 2000, there are only four congressional districts in the state. Lawmakers since that time have failed to update the statute. NORML State Policies Manager Carly Wolf criticized the decision. “Legalization opponents have shown time and time again that they cannot succeed in either the court of public opinion or at the ballot box. Whether or not one supports marijuana reform, Americans should be outraged at these overtly undemocratic tactics, and as a result, the most vulnerable Mississippians will continue to be denied safe access to a therapy that could offer them significant relief from severely debilitating conditions.” The case is Mary Hawkins Butler v. Michael Watson, Miss., 2020-IA-01199-SCT.

Louisiana: House Lawmakers Advance Marijuana Decriminalization Legislation

Members of the Louisiana House of Representatives have approved legislation to remove the threat of jail time for low-level marijuana possession offenses. House Bill 652 was approved by the House of Representatives Tuesday night with a 67 to 25 vote after receiving unanimous approval by the House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice last week. The measure now heads to the Senate for further consideration. HB 652 reduces the penalty for the possession of up to 14 grams of marijuana for first-time as well as subsequent offenses to a $100 fine only. While there would be no possibility of jail time under the bill, these offenses would still be classified as misdemeanors. Separately, House Bill 699, which would legalize and regulate adult use marijuana and allow for limited personal cultivation, is scheduled for debate on the House floor on Tuesday 5/18/21. Members of the Louisiana House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice also approved House Bill 243 last week, sending it to the floor next. This measure would remove penalties for marijuana possession and distribution, but only if lawmakers approve separate legislation to regulate production and retail sales. A separate bill that would legalize adult use marijuana with a focus on social equity (House Bill 637) is awaiting action from the Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice, where it is scheduled for a public hearing on Wednesday 5/12/21. House Bill 391 was also approved by the House of Representatives last week in a 73 to 26 vote, sending the bill on to the Senate for further consideration. This measure would repeal the prohibition on physicians recommending medical marijuana for “inhalation” and in “raw or crude” form (medical cannabis flower). It also allows dispensaries to dispense two and a half ounces of marijuana per 14 day period. House lawmakers also approved a separate proposal to levy a tax on these products.

Georgia: Governor Signs Legislation into Law Expanding Access to Low-THC Medical Cannabis

Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed legislation into law last week, Senate Bill 195, permitting the establishment of up to 30 state-licensed retailers of high-CBD/low-THC oil products to qualified patients.  The new law takes effect on July 1, 2021. Under a 2015 state law, qualified patients are exempt from criminal prosecution for the possession of oil extracts containing not more than 5 percent THC and an amount of CBD equal to or greater than that amount. However, the law failed to provide any mechanism for patients to obtain low-THC products from a state-regulated producer or provider. About 15,000 Georgians are registered under the law to qualify for the use of high-CBD/low-THC oils.  In 2019, lawmakers enacted separate legislation, House Bill 324 (aka Georgia’s Hope Act), establishing a regulatory commission to oversee the eventual “production, manufacturing, and dispensing” of products possessing specified quantities of plant-derived THC and CBD.  State regulators are expected in the coming months to award licenses to eligible applicants to begin cultivating cannabis and manufacturing oil extract products. Senate Bill 195 permits those awarded production licenses to also possess up to five retail dispensing licenses.

Weekly Legislative Roundup 4/9/21

Welcome to the latest edition of NORML’s Weekly Legislative Roundup! On Tuesday, a majority of the Virginia legislature concurred with Gov. Northam’s recommended changes to the adult use legalization bill on his desk.

The timeline by which state regulators have to enact provisions licensing commercial cannabis production and sales remains July 1, 2024. Separately, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is expected to sign an adult use legalization bill into law early next week. At the local level, A legislative committee of the Philadelphia, PA city council approved a bill to ban pre-employment drug testing for marijuana.

A Week for the History Books

This whirlwind of a week is one for the cannabis history books. For those of you keeping score at home: On Tuesday, New York lawmakers passed legislation legalizing the adult-use marijuana market, and permitting for the personal use, possession, and cultivation of cannabis. Hours later, the Governor signed the bill into law – with the provisions legalizing personal marijuana possession taking immediate effect.On Wednesday, Virginia’s Governor called for lawmakers to amend legislation in order to expedite the timeline for when Virginians can legally possess and grow marijuana from January 1, 2024 to July 1, 2021. Legislators will vote on the amendments next week.Later that same day, members of the New Mexico House and Senate advanced legislation to the Governor legalizing the adult-use marijuana market and expunging the criminal records of those convicted of low-level cannabis offenses. The Governor praised their efforts and vowed to sign the bills into law imminently. In short, in a matter of hours, we have seen cannabis freedom be extended to tens of millions more Americans!  Even our staunchest political opponents are conceding the writing on the wall, recently tweeting, “I don’t care if one state legalizes. Or all fifty.” That’s because they, like most everyone else, understand that the rising tide of legalization is only gaining momentum. Since November, seven states have moved to legalize adult-use marijuana possession and sales and one chamber of Congress passed a bill to end federal prohibition. More than 40 percent of Americans now live in a jurisdiction where cannabis is legal for those ages 21 and older. Our political opponents are acutely aware that they have lost their war on marijuana and their public pronouncements are becoming more desperate and unhinged. For instance, Nebraska’s Governor Pete Ricketts recently alleged, “If you legalize marijuana, you’re going to kill your kids.” And, most recently, political television commentator Greg Kelly outlandishly claimed that he blacked out after smoking marijuana and woke in four days later on another continent! Fortunately, the American public – and growing percentage of politicians – can see through these lies. In the coming weeks, we expect to see even more states move into the “win” column, followed by even more outrageous proclamations and reefer madness rhetoric from our opponents. Nevertheless, our strength moving forward continues to depend upon you.  Our movement is your movement. We are not funded by “Big Corporations.” These latest victories, like those before them, came about as a result of longstanding grassroots efforts – often led by local advocates just like you. That is why we want to ‘thank you’ for your past support and ask that you continue to provide NORML with the resources it needs to continue to push forward. For over 50 years, Americans have carried the NORML banner, moving public opinion from 12% in support of legalization to now a supermajority of the public.  Together we have made it this far and together, we will ensure that all 50 states legalize marijuana and federal prohibition becomes a relic of the past.  If you are in a position to do so, please make a contribution of whatever you can to ensure that we are in the best position possible to capitalize on this momentum and finish the fight. 

New York: Governor Cuomo Signs Marijuana Legalization Legislation into Law

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo today signed The Marijuana Revenue and Taxation Act (MRTA) into law, which legalizes and regulates an adult-use commercial marijuana market in New York State, and also permits those over the age of 21 to cultivate personal-use quantities of cannabis in their own homes. The provisions specific to the personal possession of marijuana took effect upon signing. “I just signed legislation legalizing adult-use cannabis,” Governor Cuomo said in a statement. “The bill creates automatic expungement of previous marijuana convictions that would now be legal. This is a historic day. I thank the Leader and Speaker and the tireless advocacy of so many.” NORML’s Executive Director Erik Altieri stated, “This signals an end to the racially discriminatory policies that have long made the Empire State the marijuana arrest capital of the United States, if not the world. This stops police from annually arresting tens-of-thousands of New Yorkers for low-level marijuana offenses, the majority of whom are overwhelmingly young, poor, and people of color.” NORML’s Deputy Director Paul Armentano added, “The passage of this legislation will not only have serious economic and social justice ramifications for its nearly 20 million residents, but it no doubt will have ripple effects across the nation and arguably also within the halls of Congress — providing further pressure on federal lawmakers to amend federal law in a manner that eliminates the existing inconsistencies between state and federal cannabis policies.”  Six percent of US House members represent New York State, and seven percent of all Congressional House Committee and Subcommittee Chairs are from New York. Empire State NORML Deputy Director Troy Smit said: “It’s taken a great amount of work and perseverance by activists, patients, and consumers, to go from being the cannabis arrest capital of the world, to lead the world with a legalized market dedicated to equity, diversity, and inclusion. This might not be the perfect piece of legislation, but today, cannabis consumers can hold their heads high and smell the flowers.” The Act established a process for the licensed production and retail sale of marijuana to adults. Regulators would license delivery services and on-site consumption facilities. Retail sales will be taxed at nine percent, plus up to a four percent local tax, as well as an additional tax based upon THC content. Localities that do not wish to have cannabis retailers in their neighborhoods can opt out, but they will not receive tax revenues if they choose to do so. The Act also provides expungement relief for millions of residents with past cannabis convictions on their records.  Forty percent of tax revenue will be directed toward communities disproportionately impacted by cannabis prohibition. Provisions in the MRTA seek to award half of all business licenses to social equity applicants.

Marijuana Legalization Expected to Advance This Week in Key States

A handful of key states are poised to advance adult use marijuana legalization proposals this week. Here’s a quick breakdown: New Mexico State lawmakers failed to approve an adult use marijuana legalization proposal before the end of the 2021 regular session, which adjourned on March 20. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has called for a special legislative session to convene on Tuesday March 30 in order to send a marijuana legalization proposal to her desk. The special session is expected to last about two days, with the possibility of separate forthcoming competing proposals. New York A new draft of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) has just been released after longstanding negotiations between legislative leaders and Governor Andrew Cuomo. Committee hearings and potential votes have already been scheduled in the Assembly Codes Committee and the Senate Finance Committee for Tuesday March 30. The new proposal includes provisions on home cultivation rights, automatic expungement, social equity, on-site consumption, and more. Virginia Lawmakers have already sent marijuana legalization legislation to Governor Ralph Northam’s desk, which would not take effect until 2024. Gov. Northam is considering moving up that timeline to this summer. The governor must submit proposed amendments to lawmakers by March 31, and lawmakers are scheduled to consider and vote on any proposed changes on April 7. Rhode Island Two competing adult use marijuana legalization proposals have been introduced, one by Governor Dan McKee and a separate proposal by legislative leaders. The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider S. 568 on April 1, which would allow adults 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and to grow up to six marijuana plants for personal use.
