We’ve previously reported on the marijuana situation in the U.S., but this time we are going to provide you with the latest updated information. We’ve also included information that is a must-see for anyone who wants to travel to the U.S. when the coronas have settled down, so please take a look at it.
In this article, I will give you the latest information with more specific details.
Previously, we reported that there are 11 states that allow the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Since then, four new states have been approved for legalization, and at this point, 15 states, or 30% of the U.S., have lifted their bans on the use of marijuana with certain conditions.
States that have legalized it
Newly added 4 states
Currently, New York State is also moving to legalize marijuana, and further expansion is expected in the future.
How has the Biden administration changed things?
It was reported that the stock prices of marijuana businesses skyrocketed the moment Biden’s election was assured in last year’s presidential election.
In fact, the Democratic Party led by Mr. Biden is said to be a party that is tolerant of the legalization of marijuana. As a result, the marijuana law is currently still a state-level law, but it is expected to be legalized at the federal level in the future.
This is why the stock price of marijuana has risen, as it is expected to be legalized at the federal level in the future. New York City is also in the process of legalizing marijuana.
The current financial crisis caused by the coronavirus and the human rights issues of minorities and liberals in New York City, which is home to many ethnic groups, are also having a major impact on the legalization of marijuana.
It is believed that Biden’s election has further spurred the legalization of marijuana in New York State.
However, Biden’s top priorities are to deal with corona, rebuild the country’s finances, and select cabinet candidates in the transition from the Trump administration, so legalization of marijuana at the federal level may still be a long way off.
What is the marijuana situation for travel in the US?
It seems that many people who search for the marijuana situation in the U.S. want to know about the “marijuana situation when Japanese people travel”.
As it turns out, if you comply with the marijuana laws of each state and complete your use in that area, you will not be subject to domestic regulations.
Of course, smoking marijuana is illegal in Japan, but as long as you follow the age limit and usage laws set by your state and don’t bring it with you to Japan (or other countries or regions), you should be fine.
However, please be careful when you return to your home country and check your luggage to make sure it is not contaminated.
How was the latest information on the marijuana situation in the United States this time?
In light of the transition to the Biden administration and the planned lifting of the ban in New York, it’s a good idea to plan a trip to the U.S. when Corona is settled! We hope you find this information useful.
