I already established a grow op and didn't see the point of the card anymore because growing is legal for rec users. It's def not allowed in my lease for my new apartment, and even if I wanted to do it anyways I doubt I'd be able to get away with it. Plus I don't trust myself to grow. Although I have a buddy who's growing 5 plants that'll be ready in October so that'll be fun Hopefully the plants yield heavy.
Good luck on the med card decision. I'd hope to see rec dispensaries open by September when u can get a med card , so the med card probably isn't worth it. Handy Dandy Tax Calculator.
All the reasons mentioned already, plus: Medicinal is tax free. And, ATG mentioned to me that they would hold back higher potency product for medicinal patients. Higher testing products and anything more than 10mg per serving will be held for medical. The way they write these laws and setting high prices is like the legislation doesn't want to get rid of the black market.
Do you ever plan on getting a firearm? There is, at least currently and at least in MA, to my knowledge, no "sharing" of the MMJ cardholder database with firearms dealers, meaning they theoretically have no way of knowing about your MMJ status unless you tell them.
That said, anybody who uses marijuana in any state in the US medical or recreational, regardless of whether the state has legalized for either of those purposes, i.
MA is breaking federal law by purchasing or possessing a gun. This is because when you purchase a firearm legally , you must fill out an ATF form called , which contains the following bullshit question:. The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal Law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.
The ATF has affirmed this law in a way in that means "marijuana users" should not be sold guns by gun sellers, and for the purposes of "marijuana users" the ATF includes MMJ cardholders. Lying on that form is technically a felony as well. This isn't known to be enforced and unless you tell the gun dealer about your MMJ card or otherwise make the dealer think you use marijuana, they likely won't know about it. And I'll stop here because this is where it gets political: Depending on the interpretation, a huge percentage of the population becomes ineligible to own a firearm because they've used marijuana.
This needs to be solved and this is actually a political issue I love--not because of the legal problems, but because of its potential to unite people across the political divide which is sorely needed these days. Gun owners tend towards the right; marijuana users tend towards the left.
Yet, it is reasonable to deduce that there is overlap between them. Lawful firearms owners and lawful marijuana users stand together in the hot pursuit of liberty. Yeah, I was curious about this too. It's my understanding that anyone with a card wouldn't be able to pass a federal weapons check purchasing, concealed carry, even some training programs like Sig Academy, etc.
I don't know any of this for certain and don't own a weapon, just something I might be interested in down the line. I had my medical card for a year or two, but recently let it lapse fingers crossed recreational gets it's shit together! I wonder weapons eligibility is re-instated the day your card expires When purchasing a gun in MA, there are 2 background checks done: The federal background check is not aware of state-level MMJ databases and would only include arrests or legal trouble you've had that the federal government is aware of.
See my other post for state-level stuff and the other legal quagmires relating to this topic, but again, unless you have had legal issues, it wouldn't matter as far as being able to pass the background checks. If you've had legal trouble related to drug use, you will likely not be eligible for a gun permit in Massachusetts.
Thanks for the information,I'll give it a closer look. Thought I saw something recently that discussed some open-ended question on the Federal form, something like "is there any reason why Again, I've only given this cursory attention and on mobile now. I'll give your stuff a closer look, thx again. Depends on how much you spend. Like I said both valuable, both going to stay unless laws get a lot more flexible.
A green fungus began to mottle its trunk like a rash. A sad handful of frail flowers opened briefly and then drifted to the ground like spent confetti. Searching for a phone number online, I stumbled upon a Boston Parks and Recreation Department website that explained how I could nurture a street tree.
I had assumed it was up to the city to care for street trees. I rang the number with my head bowed, suddenly feeling like a murderess. Turns out you get the urban forest you deserve.
Each street tree needs at least 10 gallons of water a week. Boston has about 38, trees. The parks department, which cares for public shade trees, has three arborists. Life is never easy for a street tree. They are hemmed in by concrete and pipes, regularly whizzed on by dogs, struck by vehicles, and, in a place like Boston, smothered with snow laced with rock salt.
Little wonder that Boston has a paltry tree canopy, with only 28 percent of the city shaded by trees including those in parks and on private property. They soften the hard edges of our urban neighborhoods, filter air pollution, reduce runoff, and cool the summer heat.
Without citizen stewards, many of the saplings have died, typically of thirst. To break this cycle, Kachmar says, people have to essentially adopt trees. The Tree Committee works with the city to replace dead trees in the neighborhood, and when new saplings are planted, it sends a letter to abutters requesting they look after the youngsters.
Boston’s trees need your help
