In a tight vote on Monday morning the Connecticut General Law Committee voted in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana 10 to 8. The bill is not only about legalizing the drug, but also includes social provisions such as encouraging minority groups that have been affected by the drug in the past to participate in the legal market. The bill is still lacking in provisions about home growing and cannabis micro businesses but is a good first step. It is unclear whether this will be the bill to go through the senate but once a bill makes it to the governor’s desk he has said he will sign it.
Looking for a job in the marijuana industry? Well, the DEA is looking for someone to burn a ton of weed every two hours. The interesting job would be highly scrutinized by DEA staff during every minute. It is a task for somewhere with a powerful enough incinerator to completely burn the drug to a point of no return. Even though the drug is legal in some form in 33 states it is still illegal under federal law and is thus still a very serious matter to control for the DEA.
