Hillary Clinton Says She Supports Re-Classifying Marijuana From Schedule I To Schedule II

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, November, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

hillary clinton marijuanaIt wasn’t that long ago that Hillary Clinton participated in the Democrat debates on CNN during which she was asked if she supported marijuana legalization. She said that she did not. Bernie Sanders on the other hand was asked specifically about the Nevada marijuana legalization initiative that voters in that state will be voting on in 2016, and he said that he would vote for it. After the debate, Bernie Sanders was praised for his answer, and Hillary Clinton was not.

Since that time Hillary Clinton has changed her position on marijuana, which is nothing new. The day after the debate she stated that while she doesn’t support federal reform, she does support allowing states to pursue marijuana legalization if they wanted to. Today she ‘evolved’ on the issue even more by stating that marijuana should be re-classified from Schedule I to Schedule II. Per theWashington Post:

Clinton said that she supports removing marijuana from a list of schedule 1 drugs, a classification that prevents federally-sponsored research into its effects. As a schedule 1 drug, marijuana is classified among the most dangerous drugs that the federal Drug Enforcement Agency regulates.

“We haven’t done research, why? Because it’s considered a schedule 1 drug,” Clinton said during a town hall meeting at Claflin University in South Carolina on Saturday. “I’d like to move it from schedule 1 to schedule 2.”

Illinois growers get green light to ship marijuana to stores

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana growers in Illinois have been notified by state officials that they can start shipping their products to dispensaries Friday for sale to patients early next week.

Growers, who have been waiting for the official green light, received an Illinois Department of Agriculture letter late Thursday explaining how marijuana can be transported. Illinois medical cannabis program director Joseph Wright confirmed the authorization Friday to The Associated Press.

Marijuana can be transported only between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., according to the official instructions. Vehicles carrying it must be staffed by at least two cultivation center employees.

"We're thrilled," said Bradley Vallerius, spokesman for Revolution Cannabis-Delavan, a cultivation center in central Illinois, which plans to ship products to dispensaries this weekend.

College paid for by marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

 

New York (CNN)Starting in 2017, high school graduates in one Colorado county will be able to turn to a college scholarship funded by marijuana tax.

On Tuesday, 60% of voters in Pueblo County approved a measure that will phase in an increase in taxes — 5% by 2020 — on marijuana growers  to fund college scholarships and other community projects.   

The county is expected to raise $3.5 million with this tax increase, and at least half the revenue will go toward funding scholarships for high school graduates in Pueblo to attend local colleges. Depending on revenue, the program might be expanded in future years.  

"The whole point of the scholarship program was to make higher education a reality for families who can't afford to send their kids to school because of debt," said Paris Carmichael, a spokesperson for Pueblo County.  

According to Carmichael, this type of scholarship, funded by a marijuana tax, appears to be the first of its kind.
