http://www.gtogata.com | With the recent legalization of marijuana in Colorado, other states may follow suit, allowing recreational marijuana use. While many applaud this legislation, this complicates laws and before traveling to an area where marijuana is legal, you may want to consult with an attorney to ensure that you are following the letter of the law.

Will Other State Legalize Marijuana

  1. 1. * Garrett T. Ogata, Las Vegas DUI Defense Attorney
  2. 2. * A new law in Colorado legalized the use of recreational marijuana. * The new legislation allows for the regulation and taxation of the marijuana market. * The rest of the nation is now watching to see which other states follow Colorado’s lead. *
  3. 3. * Similar legislation has been passed in Washington, though it is slightly different. * Individual communities in areas of Michigan have voted to decriminalize possession under one ounce. * Arizona, Nevada, California, and Maine are among other states considering legalization in the future. *
  4. 4. * While possession is legal in Colorado, you can still be arrested for a DUI if you operate a vehicle while impaired. * Law enforcement may change their tactics toward traffic arrests because of these new laws. * Drinking and driving may become a new focus for police now that marijuana arrests will be less plentiful. *
  5. 5. * There are still laws that restrict the possession and distribution of marijuana. * If you are traveling to Colorado from Las Vegas or anywhere else in Nevada, be sure to bring contact information for your Las Vegas criminal lawyer. * Not all police officers are trained to understand the new laws, so make sure you have the right legal defense before you visit Colorado. *
  6. 6. * Colorado’s new legalization of marijuana could mean sweeping changes in US drug policy. * The federal decriminalization of the drug is potentially on the horizon. * Make sure you stay on top of new laws as they are passed so you don’t find yourself in need of a criminal attorney. *

  8. 8. * With the recent legalization of marijuana in Colorado, other states may follow suit, allowing recreational marijuana use. While many applaud this legislation, this complicates laws and before traveling to an area where marijuana is legal, you may want to consult with an attorney to ensure that you are following the letter of the law. *
