We have talked a lot about how all 50 states stand on marijuana policy, but what about the US territories? Guam legalized recreational marijuana this week and is asking for help from its dear citizens.
We all know that Guam is not one of the American states, yet we are aware that it is interrelated to the US. America has several territories governed by different governments, including Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam itself. With the legalization of recreational cannabis, there are various wrinkles in the rules, Guam is now asking its citizens for help. It is a non-united territory, considered an independent state with its own laws, laws, and regulations.
Guam is governed by the Organic Act of Guam, which was introduced by Congress and the President on August 1, 1950, and an amendment to the 1968 law allows local gubernatorial elections. Congress has established the right to apply for citizenship in select parts of the United States. Since the law made the inhabitants of Guam US citizens, they also have the opportunity to participate in national elections.
