    There is indeed a marijuana tax in Maine. While marijuana is not fully legal in Maine, it can be purchased for medical purposes. Under state law, each patient can buy up to 5 ounces of marijuana per month. The tax rate upon it is the same flat sales tax rate for everything in Maine – 5 percent. A ballot measure to make marijuana fully legal and tax it will go to voters in November 2016.

    I wish I could say, “wherever you want. We legalized it!” But, “Public consumption” is still illegal.

    When I lived there, (before they legalized it), we’d just light up in the car. I wouldn’t feel comfortable lighting up in a restroom unless it was like the neighborhood bar or a place I knew. If the owners want, they could 86 you and be within their rights.

    On January 4th, 2016 the state of Oregon enacted a 25% point of sale tax for recreation marijuana sold by dispensaries. Medical marijuana is still untaxed. There is also a permanent tax rate on recreation marijuana of 17%. This year of 2016 the state of Oregon expects to collect approximately $43 million dollars in tax revenue from recreation marijuana use.

    Alaska imposes a tax of $50 per ounce on all buds that are transferred out from a cultivation facility. A tax of $15 dollars per ounce applies to all other less desirable portions of the plant that are transferred out of a cultivation facility. Detailed inventory records are required to be completed on the first and last day of the month.

    Washington state’s recreational marijuana law has a new tax structure under a measure signed into law.The new law eliminates the current three-tier tax structure and replaces it with a single excise tax of 37 percent at the point of sale — a change sought by the legal-pot industry. To encourage more cities and counties to allow marijuana businesses, the bill directs the state to share pot revenue with jurisdictions that do so.

    Driving while under the influence of marijuana is illegal in Washington D.C. First offense is a mandatory 6 month suspension of driving privileges and possibly up to 90 days in jail. They would tell you are intoxicated by observing you and then confirm it through blood tests. There is no set threshold for marijuana intoxication and so the officer’s observations would be the determining factor.

    West of Cortez Construction, off of South Joplin Ave is a train bridge running over Fountain Creek. It seems to me that underneath it would be a great spot to chill. You’d have a nice view of the creek, a shady spot during the day, and there’s no houses nearby, which will help with privacy. A short distance away is Main Street, which has a number of great places to eat. And if you’re into kayaking and rafting for some fun afterward, Whitewater Park is just a short distance away. It looks as if there’s a small path you could drive down to get there and a few secluded spots to park in as well

    You are not permitted to drive while impaired in the state of Colorado. The technology for measuring THC in the blood stream is not as sophisticated as the technology used for alcohol impairment. The law says that operators with five nano grams, or more, of active tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in their blood can be prosecuted for driving under the influence (DUI). However the primary enforcement mechanism is police judgment of field sobriety tests. Colorado police have received special training to detect THC impairment and most drivers are changed based upon officer judgment of the field sobriety test.

    Hawaii passed medical marijuana legalization in the year 2000. Hawaii is a pretty “natural” place, and most of the people their approve and pushed for medical marijuana legalization. Pro-legalization efforts were involved as well, but the people who call Hawaii home pushed their local politicians for a medical marijuana possibility. In the year 2000 the state senate introduced and passed a bill (Senate Bill 862) allowing Hawaiians to have 4 ounces of usable marijuana along with 7 plants.

    In July of 2013 Governor Maggie Hassan, signed the first bill allowing the use of medical marijuana. She did, however, insist on changes, which ultimately caused a lot of confusion and major delays in implementing the use of medical marijuana. Patients where finally allowed to register for medical marijuana beginning in November of 2015. It was not until April of 2016 that the first dispensary began operations

    It is illegal and unsafe to drive after getting high; you can get DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and be arrested. That means driving any motorized or non-motorized mode of transportation or operating any machinery. Marijuana affects reaction time, hand-eye coordination, concentration, perception of time and distance.
    There is no determination on how high is too high unless a blood test is given. It is what the police notice. A thing they like to look for is change in speeds. People are speeding up, slowing down, just driving erratically in general.

    The best place to smoke Marijuana in Newport according to me is the Nye Creek for many reasons. The main reason is that there is the Oregon Coast dispensary very close by that sells marijuana for both medicinal and recreational uses. The creek has many spots that assure absolute privacy and open area for you to gaze at the sky and stars while smoking weed. The main public Creek area is a quaint tourist with many small cute shops and restaurants that will surely satisfy your palate. The creek in general has shallow water and is quite safe so you can also take a quick dip.

    If you are in Thornton and are looking for a good place to smoke weed in the first place to beach it would suggest is to go to Carpenter Park at 3498 East 112th Avenue. This is a really cool park with lots of great scenery outside where you can have a good time. Another good park nearby is the Woodlands / Brookshire Park. These both are very close to each other and you could have from one to the other in between your joints. Go on down and see the cool scenery that you can find at these two fun places.

    Actually, the very, very best place is within your own home as it is illegal to smoke, vape or eat it anywhere in public, although how they would know what you are eating makes the risk for that method very low, imho. We would need to lobby to create a new law that allowed for consumption in, say, a private club, which would be a cool idea. If you live in a non-smoking apartment, learn how to make cannabis butter so you can enjoy your now legal marijuana cookies or other food items. Now, if you like to hike, you could trek into the back country of the Cascades but that will be quite a drive for you from Richland. You could go down to the Columbia River and put up a tent in an isolated place and probably get away with it. You might hike up the canyons along the Columbia River, although you may be out of breath doing that. But so few people do those hikes — outside of hunting season — that you are most likely to find yourself along. Good Luck!
