Not long ago, there was no "medicinal cannabis" or "recreational cannabis," there was just "marijuana," and if you grew, sold it, or possessed it, you were committing a crime. Starting with Proposition 215 in 1996, we have seen a social movement toward legalizing cannabis markets across the U.S, that has only built momentum; now, 46 of the 50 states and a handful of territories have cannabis policies directly in violation of the federal Controlled Substances Act. However, as criminal prohibition posed a barrier that users constantly needed to overcome, legal medicinal and adult-use policies offer unique challenges to consumers being able to use cannabis as they so choose.
