Marijuana in New York: Here’s How the Laws Are Changing

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/20/nyregion/marijuana-laws-new-york.html

Quote:

New York is getting closer to legal marijuana.

On July 13, the state Health Department issued a report recommending legalization of the drug, and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo suggested that it was not a question of if, but when legalization would happen in New York.

The move followed a change in policy in New York City. In June, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the city would hand out tickets to some people caught smoking pot instead of arresting them.

But before New Yorkers break out their gummies and vape pens, here’s an explainer on what’s changing and when.

How illegal is marijuana in New York City, really?
Despite what you might smell on the streets, it’s still illegal. Marijuana possession and use in most cases are still outlawed under both federal and state law.

So what’s changing?
Beginning on Sept. 1, the New York Police Department will begin issuing tickets for people who smoke weed in public instead of arresting them. They can still be arrested, however, if they have an open arrest warrant, are on parole or probation, don’t have identification, have been convicted of a violent crime, or are considered a threat to the public — like those caught smoking behind the wheel of a car.

What are these tickets?
The tickets are criminal court summonses, which means you have to show up in court and issue a plea. Fines are up to judges. But as an example, on a first offense, a summons for unlawful possession of a small amount of marijuana can mean a fine of up to $100. That charge is technically a violation, not a crime, so the summons would be sealed at the end of the case, a court official said.

They call it decriminalization. In 1977, marijuana is decriminalized for possession of up to 25 grams. But possession in public view remained a misdemeanor.

I can tell you it definitely never felt decriminalized.

In our parents lifetime, or 'yours' if you are old.  Cannabis was a felony for any amount almost everywhere.  Then way too many people got busted.

Decriminalization is not legalization. I'll give you an example. Cannabis use is legal in San Francisco.... Heroin use is decriminalized. Get the difference? Neither can be considered a criminal offense, but only one is legal.

Most of those relaxed policies in ny are only for ny city. I live upstate ny and a couple months ago a buddy got caught with a roach on the floor of his car. Paid a $200 fine with a $125 court surcharge. It was something like .09 grams........

In NYC, if its cannabis (flower) related, even  years ago the most you could get is a class A misdeamenor. Flower youd have to really try hard to get a felony. Up to 25g is allowed if you keep it in your pocket.

The problem in NYC right now is that while "marijuana" flower is mostly ignored, cops go after oils and other THC products because only the flower is decrimed. However, this is nuts because NY MMJ doesnt allow flower but only oil lol, so you can see the problem with these laws.

That said, people dont get arrested for flower really that much. These days the cops are looking for people using c02 pens. It is not decriminalized and under NY law isnt considered "marijuana"

Cultivation could be a felony though, and they could even take assets if its considered a "growhouse".
This post that im quoting, where did you hear this info?

But yeah, it'll be legalized, but will prolly be expensive. I mean i already have an MMJ card and its NYC, used to be very hard to get. Jersey will legalize also, im not sure about pennsylvania tho. I hope its the whole tristate

Penn will be awhile.  Toss up between who'll take longer, Ohio, Penn, or indiana.  Kentucky will be a long time.  Maybe.

It's decrimanalized in Ohio but it's a joke.  Under 100g and it's a ticket but you cannot drive for who knows how long.  Could be years on later offenses.

Under 200 grams is jail, 30days, fine and again cannot drive.



Gets very serious once a felony.  Under a kilo but over 200 grams it's a felony 5.  Get over a kilo and a nickle in prison is possible.

Same rules for cultivation which sucks.  Hard as shit to grow under 100 or under 200 when they weigh wet and the whole plant.

Pipes and papers used to be more serious than the weed.  You could go to jail for the bag but not the weed.  Which shows how retarded leadership is.  They finally caught on and rewrote the law.

Absolutely. Its finally real. Im happy. I know its gonna be pricey to buy rec (in LA without tax even, a half O from MedMen is $150...with tax, 188). But the legality itself is very good because NYPD has always been a huge issue, they abuse MJ laws. Like how for now theyre going after people vaping thc carts, because its not "decriminalized marijuana flower". Oil is its own category. But mindblowing is that vape oil is the only thing allowed for medical use (besides capsules and whatever, and all you pick is ratio of cbd to thc). Also 200mg of thc in a cart is at least 90 bucks in the current medical bs system

I really hope they use common sense pricing, because otherwise everyone except the upper manhattan people (who NYC caters to) will be the only ones buying Rec MJ. the point is supposedly to compete with black market, but even in cali thats not working cause of the tax.

Good, I hope this can drop the price for everyone, from what I gather NY has highest prices in the nation.

Thats not true.

You can easily get an O in NY for 150, for good stuff. Which isnt bad. More common is 220ish for some fire.

Its not cali with $90 ounces but its not outrageous.

When i was in ohio, and pennsylvania also, i heard of prices like $350 an O. New york has a thriving black market. There are states/cities where weed actually goes dry every here and there (like ohio). Also, since legalization hasnt happened yet dealers charge diff prices, you need to stick with a source you know/like.

Anyway, in my experience (im from LA, go back and forth between a couple cities) legalized rec herb is usually about 2x the price of black market. I mean a half ounce from west hollywood's MedMen shop (first rec shop to open in LA) was 188 with tax, 150 without. Thats a half ounce

You can also get 1g of good shatter for like 25, or less in bulk. I find shatter is much cheaper than in cali dispensaries, but you need to get in semi-bulk
