Will 2019 Become The Year of Cannabis?

Alright, alright... it’s always been the year of Cannabis, especially for those who love healthy greens which aren’t lettuce or spinach.

Yet, after recent years did create a definite pro-zeitgeist, could it be that 2019 will become the year of Cannabis — especially in the USA?


Not only has a potential future candidate for the 2020 Presidential elections recently flipped expressed being pro cannabis, despite a rather ambiguous previous professional background when it comes to cannabis, but it seems that Kamala Harris is all in now.

As if things couldn’t get better, with always more US states embracing at least medical use, Trump’s attorney general nominee will not object to states legislation and crackdown on states with favorable marijuana legislation.

Of course, with Cannada — now officially renamed to fit the zeitgeist — leading the pack already, it rests to be seen how many more states and also countries will look at adopting legalized recreational use of cannabis. New Zealand already promised to hold a referendum by latest 2020. The EU is still rather quiet but already has favorable HEMP regulation, which isn’t yet adopted everywhere though.

The momentum for cannabis has never been so strong and will probably only grow further.

Nobody should have to live in the dark ages of prohibition, or brutal wars on drugs for a natural product.

Do you think Americans will follow Canadians soon and cannabis will be decriminalized in 2019, or latest 2020?

Legalization is a scam in Canada, the govt is the only legal seller and their weed is toxic - and $18 per gram plus taxes and shipping. Hopefully New Zealand doesn't legalize. What we need is decriminalization, not more laws and punishments! 14 years for growing a plant now in Canada? That's not progress.

Mexico is on the way of legalizing cannabis. There is already the proposal in the new congress chamber.

I don't know where you live @fknmayhem but in here (Uruguay) has been the year for a long time ;)

Last link in the post. That’s the prehistoric era I live in. Crypto better moon enough for it to pay for international relocation. 😁

I hope to see the US decriminalize on a federal level this year. More states continue to allow recreational use. It’s only a matter of time

A new bill to finally deschedule cannabis, aptly named HR420, was introduced by Rep. Blumenauer earlier this year.

Sweet! Let’s hope it moves forward

Let's hope so for your side of the world! In my tiny country we're smoking 'legally' in coffeeshops since 1976 :D

Just one issue since 1976: if laws are properly applied the country can not grow sufficient to provide every coffeeshop unless the whole population grows it’s maximum of five plants.

Not 30 like we used to do in Amersfoort. 😂

Hahahaha - yes, there's enough supply to the coffeeshops BUT no-one 'knows' where it's grown :')

Every year is the year of cannabis for me. I think this may actually be the year of political scandals more than anything else.

I think that has been the case since 2016 already re-political scandals. ;)

And yeah, agreed re-every year. But I wouldn’t mind slightly less dark ages tbh. Of course, I’m biased living under a President like Duterte.
