So, what do all y'all Nevadians think of this so far? Is it working out well for the general citizenry? Any problems or benefits that weren't anticipated?

I’m a recreational user. I don’t have a medical reason. Med patients here jumped to the head of the line at the dispensaries. They sometimes get better prices and can buy more quantity at a time. The dispensaries here all have their own deals that they may run. Tax is 18% but med patients have a lower tax bracket I believe.

Getting your med card isn’t cheap but may offset by the price you pay. The tax over in CA is higher than NV.

We've had rec here in California for just about a month and it's still too early to tell if there are any problems. Was kind of weird to just walk into a store and buy weed off the shelf from a menu like at McDonalds. The prices are a little higher than my regular "guy" but the quality is up there.

I bet those pot store owners are going to be raking in the cash, at least for a while.

After the Burn my BIL, who works doing electronic maintenance for a Ca. Sherrif, and I stopped by a dispensary. Before paying he flipped out his Sherrif Department ID and asked for the "law enforcement discount". They gave it to him!! 10% off.

BTW the dispensary was complaining that they where low on stock because "All the Burners..."

Denver has great prices too. Another year and it should even out...

Oh and we no longer have a shortage. We never really did, it was the alcohol distributors trying to muscle in on the distribution, caused a short term snafu.

I was reading this article: https://www.rgj.com/story/news/marijuan ... 552726001/

Apparently the Pershing County Sheriff said they will not enforce the state law if you don t have more than one ounce.

Yeah, here is the insight:

BLM does not care about state canabis laws. They will issue federal citations and execute federal arrests.

Burning Man is held on land administered by the BLM.

Got it. It is true it seems to have more BLM agents than Pershing officers.

In another hand, apparently BLM agents didn't made arrest for several years. [mod edit]

Quick question, does the BM entrance is really enforce with officers and dogs now?

Yes, gate road is prime area where BLM issue citations and arrest people.

Yes they have dogs.

RGJ is not always accurate.

Arrest data is usually underreported.

On average, there is a surge of ~ 150 additional arrests in the county during Burning Man.

Don’t be that guy that goes to jail.

Discussion of banned substances is prohibited on ePlaya subjectively. It is up to the mods to delete these threads.

Just theorizing, BMORG negotiates with BLM and Pershing County which and what law will be enforced in 2018. Check JRS. Pershing County wants to arrest and cite as many burners as possible. Maybe Jeff Sessions has the same arresting and citing aim.

Pershing County approaching and on playa, the majority of citations, are not bound by any rules to cite and arrest. If they do, it is your court expense. Look up quantities that can engage intent to distribute.

When did that go into effect? Can you tell me where it’s listed in the TOS?

I went looking and it only prohibits illegal activity. As far as I can tell, in the US of A, it remains legal to talk about scheduled substances, for now.

AFAI can tell, the discourse was about policy, enforcement, and consequences of the laws.

You can discuss with mods anything any time. That includes drug posts and drug camp posts that are mod deleted.

A substantive post of mine questioning a placed camp promoting illegal in NV and on federal land psychedelics was deleted, oddly.

ePlaya in its imperfections lives on, maybe.

I tried t take out what could be construed as "promoting illegal activity" at an individual level while retaining the discussion, as it has merit.

Eplaya has never been a bastion of free speech, dear friends.
