Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed into law on Thursday legislation that doubles to two ounces the amount of marijuana individuals age 21 and older may legally possess in the state. This is a welcome expansion of respect for the freedom of people in Colorado.

Still, isn’t it ridiculous that people across America can legally fill their pantries with beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages but need to limit the amount of marijuana they posses to a small quantity to comply with the law?

And, in some states, possession of any marijuana whatsoever remains verboten.

Hopefully, the day will come soon when governments across America will consider it none of their business how much marijuana people have in their homes, cars, purses, or wherever.

The average THC potency (or strength) in products available in some state marijuana dispensaries can be even higher. Some concentrated marijuana products, like dabs or waxes, may contain as much as 80 percent THC.
