Decriminalization in Vermont
Remember last year‘s astounding news about cannabis legalisation in US states Colorado and Washington? Things still roll. As of July decriminalization takes effect in the state of Vermont. Now for adults 21 and older possession of up to an ounce of cannabis will result in only a civil fine. The maximum fine will be $200 for a first offense with slightly higher fines for repeated offenses. People younger than 21 will also be required to undergo substance abuse screening if caught with cannabis.
On a slightly other scale the plant hemp scored widespread public recognition by growing everywhere in the city of Goettingen (Germany). Volunteer guerilla gardening by a group calling themselves „Einige Autonome Blumenkinder“ who had sown kilos of cannabis seeds in the entire city to induce legalisation of the plant cannabis voiced responsibility for this. Though overwhelmingly male specimen – no THC and no blossoming – police and authorities terminated most of the plants for cosmetic reasons.
Hemp out of control
On the the globe‘s other side, in California the widespread growing of cannabis poses a problem for other reasons. Since ‚Humboldt Marihuana‘ has become a notorious brand and cannabis has been decriminalised for medical reasons today more than 4000 plantations and 4 million plants entail severe ecological problems. Because some owners spray large quantities of rat poison d-CON and illegal pesticides which affects wildlife, and because the plants need huge quantities of water and lots of space.
