One Out of Four US Senators Is a Marijuana Prohibitionist — Is Yours One of Them?

Marijuana legalization now consistently scores majorities in national public opinion polls, marijuana is already legal in four states and the District of Columbia and likely to be legal in a handful more, including California, before year’s end, and the Obama administration has effectively thrown federal pot prohibition to the wind in the legal (and medical marijuana) states, yet Congress remains to a large degree stuck in the last century when it comes to marijuana policy.

Granted, there are some small signs of progress, some nibbling around the edges of pot prohibition, through bills and spending amendments that seek to stop the feds from interfering in legal and medical marijuana states, but Bernie Sanders’ bill to end federal marijuana prohibition doesn’t sport even a single cosponsor. When it comes to fixing marijuana policy, Congress is going to have to be dragged crying and screaming into the 21st Century.

One reason is a sizeable contingent of senatorial prohibitionists. According to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), which just released its 2016 Congressional Scorecard, more than a quarter of US senators received a failing grade when it comes to supporting progressive marijuana policy reforms. A failing grade indicates “that this member expresses significant and vocal opposition to marijuana law reform.”

Medical marijuana clinics open across Minnesota

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana is legal in Minnesota, but for many outstate patients, it’s been out of reach.

For most of the program’s first year, there were only three places in the entire state where patients could pick up a prescription: Minneapolis, Eagan and Rochester. That left vast stretches of the state hours from the nearest clinic.

That’s about to change. By the first of July, there will be more than twice as many medical cannabis clinics in the state than there were on the first of June.

Long Beach voters may have several choices on marijuana in November

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Long Beach voters may be faced with a choice between two competing medical marijuana ballot measures this November.

There’s also the possibility of a statewide ballot initiative that may legalize recreational use of the cannabis across the Golden State, but that’s another story.

In Long Beach, supporters backing a medical marijuana initiative that would allow dispensaries to legally return to the city have gathered enough signatures to potentially qualify the measure for November’s ballot, the city clerk announced Friday. The signatures still must be verified, however.

Also on Friday, Councilwoman Suzie Price announced that she and two other council members will ask their colleagues on the City Council on Tuesday to consider writing an alternative ballot measure that would allow four medical marijuana delivery services to legally operate in Long Beach.

The alternative proposal holds out the possibility that storefront dispensaries may eventually be allowed in Long Beach, she said.

“We’re trying to clarify, it’s a phased-in, deliberate approach. It’s not a delivery-only model,” Price said.
