Survey: 79% Of U.S. Mayors Support Marijuana Decriminalization

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

 

Marijuana reform is a very popular political topic these days. I remember as recently as the beginning of this decade when supporting marijuana reform was considered to be political suicide. But more and more elected officials are getting on the right side of history every day it seems. Many local elected officials are particularly supportive of marijuana reform. A recent survey of mayors in the United States by Politico magazine found the following results;

The mayors are enthusiastic supporters of the federal government taking a larger role in issues of police and criminal justice reform. One much desired area of reform: The surveyed mayors, themselves uniquely positioned to feel the brunt of the federal drug policies, overwhelmingly encouraged the decriminalization of marijuana, with 79 percent of the mayors suggesting that the federal government follow the lead of an increasing number of cities like Washington, D.C., and even whole states like Colorado.

Of course, it’s worth pointing out that cities like ‘D.C., and even whole states like Colorado’ have done more than decriminalize marijuana – they have legalized it altogether, although D.C. decriminalized prior to legalizing. But I get what the authors are saying. They should have offered up cities like Philadelphia as an example to make it more clear I think. Philadelphia decriminalized marijuana and saved roughly one million dollars in the first year.

Meet The Organization Behind The Viral Pro-Marijuana Letter That DARE Accidentally Published

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, August, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Drug Abuse Resistance Education, America’s most controversial substance abuse prevention group, accidentally posted a pro-marijuana legalization letter on its website Friday.

Carlis McDerment, a former deputy sheriff from Ohio who has since joined up with Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), wrote a letter titled “Purchasing marijuana puts kids at risk,” which the Columbus Dispatch published in response to another letter written by Dr. Johanna Said.

In the letter, McDerment argued that enforcing the current prohibition against marijuana actually puts kids at greater risk than simply legalizing the drug.

DARE quickly picked up and posted the piece on its website, and after a reporter at the Washington Post sent in a query wondering if DARE was softening its anti-drug stance, the organization pulled the article several hours later. The piece still went viral. A spokesperson clarified that the organization does not, in fact, support legalizing marijuana.

Could Drones Be Used to Deliver Medical Marijuana?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

California medical marijuana patients could soon have the availability of using a bitcoin account to order weed and then have it piloted in, special delivery, to a designated location via drone. 

The San Francisco-based cannabis delivery app, Trees, recently announced that it was working on receiving approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to expand its current delivery model to include the use of drone technology when providing Bay area tokers with access to “the finest cannabis in the world.”

Representatives of the company recently told the International Business Journal that drone deliveries are still in the process of being worked out, since the legalities surrounding such a unique method for getting smoke into the hands of patients remains somewhat ambiguous.

"We're not sure when we'll be launching yet," said a spokesperson for Trees. "We are based in San Francisco and the legal situation here is not clear yet."
