Republicans Want To Sue Obama For Not Arresting People For Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
republicans-want-to-sue-obamaUnited States President Barack Obama has been a mixed bag at best when it comes to his marijuana policies. I remember when he was elected in 2008. There was so much excitement because there was the possibility that Obama would be the first President to take a rational approach to marijuana policy. Unfortunately there have been some big mistakes by the Obama Administration since 2008 in the area of marijuana policy. However, his respect for the roll-out in Colorado is worth commending.
 
Some people are not so happy with the Obama Administration’s handling of the situation in Colorado (and soon to be Washington). United States House Republicans passed a bill demanding that President Obama crackdown on recreational and medical marijuana sales in states that allow it. The Enforce the Law Act was passed by a vote of 233-181 last week. The bill was originally introduced by Representatives Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Jim Gerlach (R-PA), and it would allow Congress to sue the President for failing to faithfully execute laws.
 
“The Constitution gives Congress the responsibility to write the laws and the Executive to enforce them,” Gowdy said Wednesday in a statement according to Raw Story. “We don’t pass suggestions. We don’t pass ideas. We pass laws. Regardless of our politics, I hope my colleagues have enough regard for our work to expect those laws would be faithfully executed.”
 
Oregon’s legendary Representative Earl Blumenauer gave his opinion, which is an opinion that is supported by a majority of Americans:

Iowans Strongly Support Marijuana for Medicinal Purposes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, March, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
support-mmj-iowansCEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Iowans overwhelmingly support allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana for medical use, according to poll results released this morning.
 
By an 87 to 17 percent majority with the support of 68 percent or more of every party, gender and age groups, Iowans support legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, Quinnipiac University Poll found.
 
That level of support is comparable to other states, according to Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
 
“Iowans overwhelmingly think marijuana should be legal for medical purposes, but most voters oppose legalizing personal recreational use,” Brown said. On the other hand, “Opposition to personal marijuana is higher in Iowa than in any state we’ve surveyed so far on this subject.”
 
Despite that level of support, efforts in the Iowa Legislature to legalize medicinal marijuana have failed to gain broad support this year.
 
Both Republican and Democratic legislative leaders say there is more interest and discussion about medicinal marijuana, but more education and research is needed before the issue can be considered further.
 
Among those leery of medicinal marijuana is Gov. Terry Branstad, a Republican seeking a sixth term.
 
Although he sympathizes with families who say medicinal marijuana would offer them relief from a variety of conditions, Branstad said officials must keep in mind the “unintended consequences” that could lead to abusing the system.
 
“I think we have to be careful about drafting our laws just for a few people that have a particular problem or ailment,” Branstad said.
 
By a 55 to 41 percent margin, Quinnipiac found Iowans oppose allowing marijuana for personal use. Democrats support personal marijuana use 54 to 44 percent and voters 18 to 29 years old support it 62 to 35 percent. Quinnipiac found all other groups are opposed to legalizing recreational use, with men opposed 51 to 45 percent and women opposed 59 to 37 percent.

Feds approve University of Arizona study on pot and PTSD

The federal government has given a green light to a University of Arizona researcher who plans to look at whether marijuana helps veterans with post-traumatic stress, The Los Angeles Times reports.
 
The feds' approval is a major development, given that research into marijuana's potential benefits has been stymied by the government's prohibition of the drug. The Times reports that the move by the government may open the door to additional research into cannabis.
 
"This is a great day," said the Arizona researcher, Suzanne A. Sisley, clinical assistant professor of psychology at the university's medical school, who has been trying to get the green light for her study for three years. "The merits of a rigorous scientific trial have finally trumped politics. 
 
"We never relented," Sisley said. "But most other scientists have chosen not to even apply. The process is so onerous. With the implementation of this study and the data generated, this could lead to other crucial research projects." 
 
Backers of medical marijuana hailed the news as an indication that the government had started coming to terms with one of the more striking paradoxes of federal drug policy: Even as about 1 million Americans are using marijuana legally to treat ailments, scientists have had difficulty getting approval to study how the drug might be employed more effectively.
