https://bluevirginia.us/2021/04/breaking-virginia-general-assembly-votes-to-move-up-legalization-of-adult-use-marijuana-to-july-1-2021

Among other benefits, legalization "will bring an end to the thousands of low-level marijuana infractions occurring annually in the Commonwealth -- ending a discriminatory practice that far too often targets Virginians who are young, poor, and people of color"

2. One ounce and four plants per household. 😁

Additional amendments added by Gov. Northam will allow the sealing of records related to crimes involving the misdemeanor possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. Those records will begin to be sealed starting on July 1, 2021. Separate legislation enacted in 2020 previously sealed records related to misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Records specific to the simple possession of marijuana and/or misdemeanor possession with intent to distribute records will be automatically expunged no later than 2025. Those with records specific to crimes involving the felony possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute may begin to petition the courts for an expunging of their records in 2025.

The bill also allows for the resentencing of individuals currently incarcerated for marijuana-related offenses. The measure permits these individuals to have a hearing before the court that originally sentenced them, with legal counsel provided for indigent individuals. However, this portion of the bill must be reenacted in 2022.

4. I wonder what this will do to the street price.

Will it go down since people can just buy it legally or will it not because the legal price with tax added could be higher ?

5. If it's anything like Oregon

it was just about a wash at first, then competition drove down prices. There's a dispensary every few blocks in Eugene. Quality went up and testing labels give you a good idea of potency and heritage. There are also commercial concentrates, vape pens and edibles.

Good luck and I hope everything goes through. Oh, and once it's legal, check out leafly dot com.
