In recent months with Prop 19 on the ballots there was much talk of California becoming North America's Premiere Marijuana Tourism destination. Well we all know that Prop 19 failed, so where will the Marijuana tourists go to spend their money?
Saipan, in the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands -- a US territory in the Pacific.
A bill legalizing, regulating, and taxing marijuana use for medicinal and other purposes in the CNMI passed the House of Representatives yesterday afternoon, adding to a list of revenue-generating bills pending in the 17th Legislature.
Public Health Secretary Joseph Kevin Villagomez earlier said the CNMI Department of Public Health may lose over $10 million in federal grants should the marijuana legalization bill becomes law.
Villagomez said if one of the goals of legalizing marijuana is to reap potential economic windfall with the commercialization of marijuana cultivation and use, then the committee should commission a study to look at similar places that have done it.
