Louisiana medical marijuana program flings doors open to pot smokers; 'it's so accessible'
LINK

quote:

Come January, the state’s licensed marijuana growers and pharmacies will be able to sell the raw, smokable flower that has long been preferred by users. Any doctor licensed to practice in the state can now recommend marijuana for as many patients as they want, for any ailment they deem fit -- they need only contact the Board of Pharmacy to get Schedule 1 privileges added to their license. The number of doctors prescribing the drug has nearly quadrupled, from 59 in 2019 to 219 in the second quarter of this year.

In short, getting legal marijuana in Louisiana has gotten far easier. And the state’s pot program, once considered an extreme outlier for its burdensome rules, is starting to resemble those of some of the 36 other states who have legalized the drug for medicinal use.

“I think a lot of people don’t realize that this exists and that it’s so accessible now,” said T.J. Woodard, the pharmacist in charge at Capitol Wellness Solutions, the marijuana pharmacy off Essen Lane in Baton Rouge.

So how are they justifying keeping it illegal?

"Accessible" is quite a misnomer. There's still only 2 growers and 9 dispensaries. If anything this will likely make things worse.

Literally everyone is using it. It's as simple as a phone call and there you go.

In 90% of my custody cases, at least one of the parents is prescribed marijuana.

Attitudes have changed to be more pro-marijuana in the last 5 years, both with the courts and the public.

Isn’t it also decriminalized to the point that possession of two ounces or less is just a $100 fine?

Ah, but it is more expensive because it is grown differently and better than the dirty stinky icky “illegal” weed, right?

"Accessible" is quite a misnomer.

yeah and my understanding is you cant just walk in and buy you still have to call and make an appt to pick up. Plus with so few dispensaries and when the actual bud hits, its gonna be really hard to even buy product is my guess.

And the cost is more than driving to the nearest legal state, picking up what you want and driving back.
