On D.C.’s one-year anniversary with legalized marijuana, work remains

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

More than a year has passed since District voters legalized marijuana. On Feb. 26, 2015, it became legal for adults to possess up to two ounces of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants in their home. As a result, marijuana possession arrests decreased a whopping 98 percent from 2014 to 2015, dropping from 1,840 to just 32. In addition to the massive drop in marijuana possession arrests, it is worth noting that cumulative arrests for all marijuana offenses, including sales, also dropped 85 percent in that time.

This anniversary marks an enormous step forward not only for marijuana reform but also for criminal and racial justice in the District. Marijuana enforcement in the District has historically been racially biased; as recently as 2013 African Americans in the District were eight times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people, comprising a shocking 91 percent of possession arrests, even though rates of marijuana use and sales are comparable across racial lines and African Americans comprise roughly half the District population.

Detroit Mayor Duggan’s Anti-Marijuana Bit Reveals City Bias

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan delivered his State of the City speech on Tuesday, February 23; in it he delivered a controversial accolade for a medical marijuana dispensary foe and received multiple rebukes from protesters representing the Black Lives Matter organization.

Detroit will begin the licensing process for medical marijuana distribution centers, or dispensaries, on March 1. In advance of that licensing process the city’s distribution centers report raids and intimidation by the Detroit Police Department. The pair of ordinances controlling the licensing and zoning rules were initiated by Detroit’s church and civic groups, and are strongly opposed by the medical marijuana community.

You know where Mayor Duggan stands on the issue when you know where he stood to deliver his State of the City speech on Tuesday: the Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit.

The Mayor later introduced the pastor of Second Ebeneezer Church as a member of the independent Police Commission, a Board whose duties had been suspended by the Emergency Financial Manager (EMF) and restored by Council in December.

Vermont Senate Approves Legal Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, February, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Vermont is well on its way to making history by becoming the first state in the nation to end marijuana prohibition by way of the state legislature. On Wednesday, the Senate voted 16 to 13 in favor of aproposal aimed at legalizing marijuana for recreational purposes, one that would create a taxed and regulated system that would allow weed to be sold in retail outlets all over the state. The bill must now survive another Senate vote before moving on to the House of Representatives for consideration. 

Although there was some opposition to the bill (S.241)—some lawmakers argued it would destroy Vermont’s image, while others worried it did not take the concept of legal weed far enough—supporters were pleasantly surprised to learn the issue received an impressive 16 votes.
