Which are the most marijuana-friendly states in the US?
As more states legalize recreational marijuana, it is becoming more common for marijuana to be grown and sold in many more locations.
However, some states, such as Colorado and Washington, are taking steps to ensure that recreational marijuana can only be grown at locations where there are no active fire departments or police stations.
“Fire departments and fire departments are generally not a very good source for marijuana, and the state of Colorado is trying to make it more like that,” says Scott Karp, executive director of the National Association of Fire Chiefs.
Karp points out that there are currently four fire departments in Colorado that are tasked with enforcing the state’s recreational marijuana laws.
He says that a “largely unregulated marijuana industry” could result in a major public safety issue.
“That’s why you see more and more jurisdictions looking to make sure that there is no smoking or growing in their own buildings,” he says.
“You don’t want to be the last fire department that’s out there, and they need to have a clear, safe place to be and to be safe.”
The state of Nevada is taking steps that are similar to those of Colorado, with the state Department of Emergency Services announcing that it will now have a “zero tolerance” policy for marijuana in its firehouses.
The policy will go into effect on July 1, and states will only be able to enforce it if the department has a “high degree of confidence” that they can arrest someone for smoking marijuana in the building.
Kaspas office is a state fire department, and he believes that a growing marijuana industry could result.
“A lot of times when you get a fire department to say, ‘We don’t smoke marijuana in our firehouses, so it’s not an issue here,'” Karp says.
Karsons office has a fire house and a marijuana garden, but he believes it is not a place that people would want to grow marijuana in.
“I know a lot of firefighters, when they get the chance, they say, you know, ‘I could use some help growing some weed,'” Karss says.
He believes that if people wanted to grow in the firehouse, they would find someone to help them.
“It’s not a problem if there is a medical cannabis patient in the facility, but I think a lot more people would be willing to grow and buy marijuana if they had the opportunity,” Karsss says.
In addition to having more marijuana-specific buildings, Karsson said that more fire departments will be required to allow the use of fire trucks to handle marijuana plants.
He also said that fire departments can use the state to set up a system for the sale of marijuana products.
“We are starting to see the way fire departments interact with marijuana dispensaries,” Karrss says, adding that they have not yet decided how much the sale will cost.
“The idea is that we can make sure people are not going to go into these dispensaries and be exposed to these substances that we don’t think are safe,” Karp said.
