And cannabis in New York has become unleashed
This is Lo with Veriheal keeping you up to date with the latest in cannabis news
Up until now, cannabis legalization in Virginia has been at sloth speed
The state has long struggled with getting its restrictive medical program running
But just last year, possession became decriminalized and the vote for legalized recreational use just passed.
However, there was one caveat… legalization wouldn’t go into effect until 2024
Luckily, Governor Ralph Northam has made some changes in an effort to fast-track legalization and capture the market.
As of July 1st, 2021 citizens of the Commonwealth can possess up to an ounce of cannabis and households can each grow up to 4 plants.
Northam’s decision to move the date is going to appease the masses until retail dispensaries are established in the coming years.
This is huge as the state appeared to be one of the slowest and strictest when it came to cannabis legalization.
But in a shocking plot twist, Virginia has officially become the first southern state to legalize recreational cannabis use.
Next in news,
Back in 2019, the University of Connecticut launched an introductory course for cannabis horticulture and because of its success, the school is now offering expanded education for beginning and advanced cannabis cultivation studies
Even better, these courses are available to non-degree seeking students so they are open to everyone!
A professor from the college said in a press release, “It’s a great opportunity for UConn to capitalize on an area of academics that are really just developing. We’re blazing new ground.”
The school has recognized a critical shortage for highly trained professionals in a rapidly growing industry and is stepping up to the plate to educate.
And if you’re a student in any degree program and are eager to contribute to the cannabis industry, be sure to apply to Veriheal’s Innovation in Cannabis Scholarship for a chance to win financial aid toward your education!
In case you’ve been living under a rock, New York recently legalized adult-use cannabis, and here’s what you need to know
Residents can possess up to 3 oz of cannabis for recreational use.
New Yorkers are free to consume anywhere that tobacco smoking is permitted
And the NYPD has even advised against making arrests, issuing citations, or conducting searches in these designated areas
Do note, however, none of this applies to driving while impaired. If you drive and consume, you will get in trouble if caught.
And law enforcement can no longer use smell alone as a probable cause to search vehicles but if you appear to be under the influence, they can.
Once the legal framework is set in stone, adults will be able to grow up to 6 plants with no more than 12 in each household
All of these laws only apply to those 21 and older and are still in the process of being shaped.
In the meantime, stay blazing New york!
