Below present state legislation, “What is evident is there isn’t a approach to purchase [marijuana] legally in Virginia,” Rasoul mentioned. He doubts the legislation distinguishes the seed from the plant, and jogged my memory distribution stays not but authorized. “To me, in Virginia, there’s no authorized approach to procure seeds, interval,” Rasoul mentioned.
My subsequent name was to state Sen. John Edwards, D-Roanoke. Not like Head and Rasoul, he’s had an extended and illustrious authorized profession, together with a stint as U.S. lawyer for Western Virginia. Like them, he claims he’s by no means smoked dope both. After I bought him on the telephone I didn’t beat across the bush.
“John, the place can I get some marijuana seeds?” I requested. He repeated the query again to me, form of like an echo. And as luck would have it, one in all his legislative assistants was inside earshot and overheard.
“My aide says he is aware of,” Edwards replied.
“Put that man on the telephone,” I mentioned. He did.
