Yup, that's Massachusetts.

Whatever on the gay thing.

1 oz of weed gets $100 ticket, only, in Massachusetts now. No arrests. A
lot of dealers can easily do business with an ounce or less on hand.

The other thing is that their primary source of information, snitches,
will no longer be available.

You can get arrested for an ounce of weed.

What is the world coming to ?

It's senses ?

Please tell me you're trolling. Marijuana has the smallest profit margin
by weight of just about any drug, legal or illegal. An ounce is next to
nothing. You make money by buying in bulk, not moving an ounce at a time.

I am fully aware of the value of bulk when it relates to marijuana
purchases.

My point is that people who sell and carry less than an ounce are not at
risk for carrying an oh zee.

Now you go to jail for 6 mos or so.

In a week or so, an ounce gets you a traffic ticket style piece of paper
for a hundred or so and lose your bag.

A lot of dealers in urban environments can carry less than an oz at a time
and make more money than you think.


I think the ounce price will drop some.

Another way to look at it is the people who do get caught fairly often
wont be getting sent to jail and all of those expenses will be spent on
what ?

More drugs

Lower prices

it could work out well, or not.

Familes get broken up for that all the time. Now they wont. Instead, the
dysfunctional families will have one less reason to fail.

Legalized weed will have some effects. I can only suggest what i forsee
here.

The future hasn't happened yet. Not yet anyway. Soon enough the future
will have happened already.

Im sure the colleges here will have a huge boost.

Yes, I can see how a person carrying less than an ounce has no chance of
carrying a full ounce. That's self-evident.

i meant to type that dealer carrying oz now is at serious risk. user is
similar.

if a dealer has 4 quarters, or 8 eighths, it isnt a crime,soon

presently that dealer is at huge risk for 3+ years.

there are a lot of people that sell that have a few small bags.

people go to jail for that.

those people dont get popped anymore.

Even though I don't know the specifics of Massachusetts, I seriously doubt
what you just said is true. Surely it is still a felony to possess for
sale, as well it should be. I suspect you don't know what you're talking
about.

By the way, under an ounce has been a non-arrestable misdemeanor in
California for decades. You sound like what they have done in Massachusetts
is a first. What the fuck is your problem, Skillz?

"Voters approve marijuana law change

By David Abel
Globe Staff / November 5, 2008


Voters yesterday overwhelmingly approved a ballot initiative to
decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, making getting
caught with less than an ounce of pot punishable by a civil fine of
$100. The change in the law means someone found carrying dozens of
joints will no longer be reported to the state's criminal history
board."

And, after the cops confiscate it, even a few bricks, they can't even get a
decent enough margin to make it worth the city's time. So of course it
really has come time to decriminalize.

Most people who smoke pot almost havent owned more than an ounce 5 times.

All of those people are no longer criminals.

an oz+ was bad news here

now you dont make the newspapers, get a criminal record.

if you had 4 quarter ounces you went to jail for up to 3.5 years

now you pay 100 dollars, max.
