Should Marijuana Be Legal for Recreational Use in Louisiana?
Do You Beleive Recreational Marijuana Should Be Legalized in Louisiana?
Recent Changes in Medical Laws
After changes in the laws that allowed the recommendation and dispensing of marijuana in Louisiana, a local pharmacy was granted a license to dispense medical marijuana by the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy. Those laws have recently been changed again to add several other diseases and disorders to the list of ailments that marijuana can be recommended for in the state. Read more about the local pharmacy here.
- The previous version of the law defined debilitating medical conditions [that marijuana can be reccomended for] as: cancer, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, cachexia or wasting syndrome, seizure disorders, epilepsy, spasticity, Crohn’s disease, muscular dystrophy, or multiple sclerosis.
- Conditions that have been added to the bill include: glaucoma, severe muscle spasms, intractable pain, and post traumatic stress disorder. You can find links to the full bills regarding medical marijuana in Louisiana below the poll.
With these changes, it makes more sense to some people to just legalize marijuana for all adults in the state, charge taxes on it, and allow those with a medical recommendation to perhaps get it at a lower cost or not be taxed. What do you think about this?
