Indiana marijuana surge coming from other states, police say

JEFFERSON, Ind. -- Some Indiana police officers are reporting that they're seeing an increase in marijuana products, including pot-laced edibles and vaping devices, coming from states where the drug has been legalized.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Carey Huls said authorities have observed an increase of specialty marijuana products coming from states like California or Colorado with established laws permitting their use, according to the News and Tribune.

Indiana is now bordered by three states with some legal approval of the drug.

Recreational marijuana will be legal for all adults in Illinois beginning on January 1, 2020.

Illinois recently joined Michigan to become the 11th state plus the District of Columbia to decriminalize medicinal and recreational marijuana usage.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said earlier this year that he had tried marijuana as a college student, but still opposes legalization in the state.
