The complications of the interstate commercial exchange of cannabis

The complications of the interstate commercial exchange of cannabis


If cannabis is largely unregulated and legal in some states, and it is legal to grow cannabis for commercial purposes in other states, while it was still illegal to smoke marijuana and sell marijuana in the state where it was legal to grow this for commercial purposes; would it be legal to grow medical or recreational marijuana in one state, pay taxes on this marijuana, hempseed, and even the stalks and leaves for fiber or perfume. This is very close to selling flowers, if the marijuana was not a scheduled drug. The scheduling is ok with commercial applications of cannabis and hemp, and I would argue that selling cannabis that was grown for medical or recreational purposes to a state where it was legal is legal under the exceptions that allow for other applications of hemp to be thriving industries.

This would also mutually allow the growth of any type of commercial cannabis strain, so long as the producer did not sell this product to people within the state, so long as it it had a permit for selling as an export, and paid appropriate taxes and tariffs on the goods. This would allow for the cultivation and packaging of cannabis products like marijuana under the classification as commercial commodity. This would only be covered to a certain extent. Certainly cured plants can be sold as bushels of hemp, raw seed cannabis, with the acknowledge mentor simply general purpose cannabis.

Whether other forms of cannabis after it has been processed such as marijauana are legal; while this can come as a pruned flower of sorts, this can come in many forms, selling this is chopped up would no longer be selling a flower, but perhaps a cooking herb/spice would seem to be an ok name for this, finely ground cannabis flakes and even leaves of very flavorful types of cannabis.

Seeds can be sold as garden ready varieties of cannabis. Cannabis can arguably be a useful ground cover or soil retentive plant; it has been alleged that it can even repel some bugs. It has nice smelling flowers as well.

Allowing this would allow a lot of honest business people to avoid persecution by offering these simple farmers a permit to allow them to grow their own crop for export; so long as they do not sell it within the state in any illegal processed form as opposed to the plant form that has been justified as acceptable. These honest hardworking business people who simply wanted to be involved in the cultivation of marijuana, a rather innocuous substance that was even legal in some places, as opposed to other hard drugs such as methamphetamine.


Having  a permit would allow them to operate without the fear of persecution from the law, and allow them a way to safely avoid selling products without paying taxes, by paying tax on each bushel of cannabis that the farmer grows for export purposes. This would not have the same industrial regulations or standards, as there were many applicable cultivars of cannabis that were sold at very profitable rates legally in some places in the country. These people who have no other criminal intent than growing cannabis can be relinquished of their criminality by providing them means to be honest business people selling a commercial product, rather than criminals selling illegal goods.

This permit system to allow the legal growth of any type of cannabis for export purposes in states that allow for commercial and industrial cannabis growth would allow the farming population access to a new, profitable market; as well as provide a platform for some people who would otherwise be criminals by growing marijuana to avert this outcome and be legal taxpaying business owners selling crops to export to a state where this was legal.

This would allow the cannabis to be transported in-between states just as other forms of hemp are transported around the country; as it has the legal status of an uncontrolled commercial agricultural product known as hemp, rather than being processed into a form of marijuana. This is regardless of the intended use of the cannabis by the recipients of the cannabis, selling a product as an export to a state where it’s chemical content was unregulated and it’s growth is not limited to certain elements of the many applications of the versatile plant.

The growth is allowed by a permit stating which state laws that the export hemp was to be sold in, this, even if it was not a medical or recreational cultivar of cannabis, one could state it was for export as a food hemp seed, or hemp fiber, and this application would have different regulations than Recreational Cannabis for Export to States allowing Legal Cannabis.

There was also Medical Cannabis for export to states allowing for the use of Medical Cannabis, however, this must conform to the laws of the state regarding Medical Cannabis, this sometimes requires being a caregiver to a prescribed person, or growing for a specific state run dispensary.
