North Carolina state representative Kelly Alexander is in Raleigh this week. He said he is planning to meet with other lawmakers to talk marijuana. Kelly says, “It’s time now for the legislators in North Carolina to catch up with the people.” He is hoping to work with others to work toward potential bills in 2019 focusing on cannabis reform.

According to WNCT, “One of his ideas that came out of public summer town all is having a local option approach with cannabis. Abner Brown with North Carolina NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Law)  wants to create a conversation about cannabis, rallying with other for legalization.”

Abner Brown said he and others plan to rally on Jones street in Raliegh in January. Some people living in the Triangle said they are for marijuana, as long as it benefits the community.

We will just have to wait and see what happens. It might happen sooner than we think.
