I wish cannabis rules were consistent nationwide

Who could have guessed that state governments would impose draconian restrictions on cannabis markets even after they are approved by over 60% of the state’s population? One thing I don’t understand is the disparity in lab testing rules from 1 state to another.

There are certainly places in the US where cannabis dispensaries are only required to get their products inspected 1 way or another.

They aren’t required to use a third get-together lab and can instead submit their products to their own series of lab tests for purity and ingredient lists. That’s how it really was at first in my state once the people I was with and I initially passed a constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana. However, now all medical cannabis stores must submit samples of every product sold to a third-get-together laboratory approved by the state’s marijuana regulatory board. These are beneficial restrictions that protect patients’ health, however some of the rules drafted are the opposite. For instance, you cannot open a jar of cannabis flower products before finally purchasing them. This isn’t a rule adopted by the medical cannabis dispensaries, it’s a rule crafted by the state itself. When I called the state’s Department of Health and asked, they offered me and others some deranged reasoning that amounted to preventing patients from getting high in the stores although I don’t buy this. None of the cannabis dispensaries would risk their license to allow their patients to medicate inside their establishments. Occasionally I wonder if they randomly find new rules to impose just so they suppose they appreciate they’re doing something with their regulatory authority. I don’t want to buy cannabis in a state with entirely no regulations of any kind, however there has to be possibilities available between both extremes.
