    Guam Governor Calls For Marijuana Legalization

    BY TOM ANGELL
    DECEMBER 19TH, 2016

    Eight U.S. states and the District of Columbia have already legalized marijuana, and now a key U.S. territory could be moving to end cannabis prohibition.

    “I want us to look at how states navigated into recreational marijuana,” Guam Governor Eddie Calvo, a Republican, said in a Facebook post on Monday. “Let’s figure it out and then tax the heck out of it and use those taxes to help fund our hospital, public safety and education.”

    Guam voters approved a medical cannabis initiative in 2014, but it hasn’t yet been implemented as lawmakers have squabbled over the particulars of regulations.

    ...

    Guam isn’t the only U.S. territory where legalization could become a reality soon. Roughly 135 miles away by plane flight, lawmakers in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) are pushing to end cannabis prohibition.

    And, outgoing Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla called for legalization earlier this year and issued an executive order last month to end drug testing for marijuana to public sector employees.

    Gov. Eddie Calvo on Tuesday introduced a measure to legalize marijuana on island.

    “I am introducing this bill, not because I personally support the recreational use of marijuana, but as a solution to the regulatory labyrinth that sprouted from the voter-mandated medical marijuana program,” Calvo said in a press release.

    The bill would allow anyone 21 years and older to purchase and possess up to an ounce of marijuana from licensed distributors. It would also impose a 15-percent sin tax on the sale of the drug. Patients with a medical marijuana card would be exempt from the tax.

    Calvo’s measure comes about a month after he first announced his support to legalize and tax marijuana for recreational usage.

    So which is it? A sin or a medi-sin? Just ask the guy with the gun pointed at your head.

    What if you're sick and enjoy the buzz?
    What if you're sick and don't enjoy the buzz?

    What if you believe all taxation is theft and people who point guns for no reason are full of $#@!?
