The officials of Columbus have already announced the dropping of the prosecution of misdemeanor pot. Even the state attorney and legal experts say that the present working hints at legalization of pot. On July 30th, the State passed a law stating the legalization of hemp.

The once impossible task was put into force by changing the definition of marijuana and excluding hemp from it. The new definition works on the basis of THC amount (THC is responsible for getting people high) present. A legal hemp encases a THC level less than or equal to 0.3%, while THC over the former value will be termed as marijuana.

Working of the law remains unplanned
