The trouble to make pot authorized in Louisiana has failed once more.  The leisure marijuana measure died within the Home Prison Justice Committee.

“We have now 4 yeas and eight nays,” the clerk introduced after a vote.

Consultant John Bagneris authored the invoice.

The measure’s legislative digest known as for letting adults have small quantities of pot of their possession.

“Proposed legislation permits people over the age of 21 to eat marijuana and to own as much as one ounce of marijuana.”

Bagneris urged his cohorts to take a look at the invoice as a funding mechanism to generate funds for training and infrastructure, and word that states throughout the nation are reaping the advantages of legalized pot.

“We’re at all times the final one… different states are doing it, making thousands and thousands and billions of {dollars},” he insisted.  “We’re not right here to invent the wheel.  The wheel is already there.”

He says the longer Louisiana delays making marijuana authorized, the much less the state will in the end get.

“The pot of cash will shrink and get smaller and smaller.”

Nobody spoke out towards the invoice, however that did not stop the measure from dying in committee.
