The flat construction at Hunts Point Avenue, a remote industrial area in Bronx, does not give much price. The dark grey façade packlite as backdrop of a gloomy spy film. Blinds Obstruct The view, security cameras follow movements of visitors over two entrances. Only through a glass door is a glimpse into inside: a reception, next to a few chairs, room is immersed in a lime green and reminiscent of a doctor's office.
This is not quite wrong: at PharmaCannis re is cannabis on prescription, it is only "marijuana pharmacy" in New York City. Without a medical certificate re is nothing to get – and nothing to learn. A security official refers friendly but definitely to a telephone number. The callers are put off by a woman's voice: one can leave a message, but inquiries would probably not be answered because of high coming up.
The marijuana boom that US has experienced in recent years is also due to Barack Obama. As president, he had 2013 federal authorities to turn a blind eye to States where consumption is allowed. Although cannabis was illegal under national law. But manufacturers and consumers who adhered to laws of ir states were largely safe from persecution. The market grew rapidly. Today, consumption in eight states is generally legal, 29 states and Washington, D.C., allow it for medical purposes. By end of year, industry in US could, according to estimates, implement nine billion dollars."Good people don't smoke marijuana"
But suddenly re is unrest. Minister of Justice Jeff Sessions held previous government's statement last week, just a few days after California was largest state to legalise consumption. The authorities should now use all available means "to get growing drug problem in country under control," says sessions. The officials are already overloaded. It is unlikely that y will actually penetrate in a large-scale way. However, manufacturers and consumers are afraid that ministry can make an example of individual cases. "People are worried," says Morgan Fox of Marijuana Policy Project, which is committed to legalizing cannabis. A fund that bundles several companies from industry sector collapsed by nine percent same afternoon.
"Good people do not smoke marijuana", had said sessions as a senator from Alabama during an appearance. On anor occasion he noted: members of Ku Klux Klan always held for decent people – until he learned "that y smoking". Sessions have been a regular crusade against drugs all his life, and now he is leading Justice Department as if it were 1988, New York Times wrote. At that time, US government had worked hard against cannabis with its war on drugs and imprisoned thousands – especially African-American – Americans for drug-related crimes. Sessions stem from a time that has demonized marijuana and is blind to scientific facts, says Jeffrey Zucker of Green Lion Partners, a holding company that operates a number of own companies in industry and advises or companies.
The market for marijuana has long been a komplizierteGrauzone. Under federal law, consumption and production are still prohibited. Over past few years, industry has been relying on a piece of paper that could be overridden at any time, says Jonathan Caulkins, drug expert at Carnegie Mellon University: "There has never really been any certainty." Obama's directive had not answered all questions anyway. The sale across state borders, for example, which he had wanted to curb, flourishes. Much of market is still working with cash, because banks and insurance companies are not allowed to do business with manufacturers. Advocates argue that semi-legal state makes Handelunnötig dangerous.
