The Roanoke, Virginia Board of Commissioners has voted unanimously to prohibit cannabis use—both adult-use and medical use—from public housing managed by the city’s Redevelopment and Housing Authority, WFXR reports. Current tenants will have to sign a lease addendum acknowledging the cannabis ban or face eviction if they refuse to sign it. The policy—which takes effect 30 days following the vote—comes less than a month after portions of the state’s Legislature-approved cannabis law took effect. Individual violations will be treated on an individual basis, the report says. The new rules ban cannabis consumption and possession, which are both legal in Virginia as of July 1. Mark Loftis, a commercial litigation attorney, told WFXR that there “is a process to determine whether [a] violation is of sufficient seriousness to warrant an eviction” and the new policy is “subject to that same grievance procedure.” A memo has already been sent to tenants warning them that the board was considering the new policy and a second memo detailing the newly-approved policy will also be provided. The cannabis law also prompted some colleges in the state to update their code of conduct to ban cannabis use and possession on campus. In June, prior to the law taking effect, Virginia Tech officially banned cannabis use and possession over concerns not making the official change would put the university at risk of violating the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, which could put their federal funding at risk. Off-campus cannabis use and possession is not included in the directive, so students 21-and-older who use or possess cannabis off school property would not be in violation of the new rules.

据WFXR报道,弗吉尼亚州罗阿诺克市委员会一致投票禁止该市重建和住房管理局管理的公共住房使用大麻--无论是成人使用还是医疗使用。目前的租户将不得不签署一份承认大麻禁令的租赁补充文件,如果他们拒绝签署,将面临驱逐。 这项政策将在投票后30天生效,距离该州立法机构批准的部分大麻法律生效不到一个月。报告称,个人违规行为将根据个人情况进行处理。新规定禁止大麻的消费和持有,从7月1日起,这在弗吉尼亚州都是合法的。 商业诉讼律师马克·洛夫蒂斯(Mark Loftis)告诉WFXR,“有一个程序来确定违规行为是否足够严重,需要驱逐”,新政策“受制于同样的申诉程序”。 已经向租户发送了一份备忘录,警告他们委员会正在考虑新政策,还将提供第二份备忘录,详细说明新批准的政策。 大麻法还促使该州的一些大学更新了他们的行为准则,以禁止在校园内使用和持有大麻。今年6月,在该法律生效之前,弗吉尼亚理工大学正式禁止大麻的使用和持有,因为担心不进行官方改变将使该大学面临违反《无毒品学校和社区法案》的风险,这可能会使他们的联邦资金面临风险。校外使用和拥有大麻不包括在指令中,因此21岁及以上的学生在校外使用或拥有大麻不会违反新规定。 在收件箱中获取每日新闻见解。订阅 结束 作者: TG于2014年加入Ganjapreneur担任新闻作家,并于2016年开始主持Ganjapreneur播客。他住在纽约州北部,在当地的一所大学教授媒体研究。
