2018 Marijuana Packaging Law Updates

 

Many states still follow US Federal guidelines for cannabis, classifying it as an illegal drug with no medicinal value and addictive qualities. Wisconsin is one of those states, considering cannabis as a Schedule I narcotic. A Schedule 1 narcotic is a drug with “no health benefits and a high potential for abuse.” The “no health benefits” part of that statement is what most cannabis activists are trying to challenge. Despite that, individuals can still face charges if they’re in possession of cannabis, and legal consequences can be more severe if the amount of cannabis is over what is considered enough for “personal use.”

Current Medical Cannabis Laws

Lawmakers in many states, including the Badger State, are still working with lobbyists, scientists, and law enforcement to decide on the question of legal cannabis in the state. The question may also be put to voters to decide, depending on the state laws. Many states begin the path toward legalizing cannabis by relaxing possession laws, so you should check with Wisconsin state government  to see current laws and regulations regarding cannabis dispensaries in the state.

Current Cannabis Research

Scientists have been studying the chemicals that create the physical and mental effects of cannabis, called cannabinoids. They have isolated the chemical (THC) that causes the mental impairment, intoxication, and occasional anxiety many experience with cannabis use. The other major chemical is cannabidiol, or CBD. While THC is illegal in all states, the legality of CBD varies state by state.
