At the same time, importing cannabis from outside the state is an offense under U.S. federal law. In this situation, the government is planning to cultivate cannabis in the state itself. According to the Democrat Ant Chronicle, 2022 will end when cannabis becomes available.

The new law opens up possibilities for therapeutic cannabis, adult recreational cannabis, and authorized products containing cannabis. Along with this, special bars for cannabis use will be opened and special substances produced from cannabis will be added to liquor and distributed in liquor stores. All these matters will be under the control of the Board.

The new law also proposes to ensure the representation of women entrepreneurs in cannabis sales. The number of licenses issued per year will also be limited if required. In addition, the board will prepare guidelines for approving applications.

At the same time, government sources say that towns that are not interested in allowing the sale of cannabis have the opportunity to do so. For this, the local councils have to pass a resolution every year.
