Iowa Democrats push for bill to allow production, distribution of medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 17th 2015 by THCFinder
iowa-democrats-pushing-for-mmjDES MOINES, Iowa —Iowa's medical marijuana law is barely a year old and some legislators are already looking to change it.
 
Under a proposed piece of legislation, certain Iowa businesses would be allowed to produce and distribute medical marijuana. 
 
Senate Democrats said they are doing this to expand the availability of the drug for Iowans who need it. They announced Monday that they will introduce the legislation this session.
 
This comes after a day when two Senate committees heard from a number of residents at the Statehouse who described their difficulties in trying to obtain medical marijuana in order to treat personal or family illnesses.
 
"Passing a medical cannabis bill or rescheduling it won't fix everything but it might just save some of those heroes,” Jon Custis said Monday at the Statehouse. Custis has been diagnosed with PTSD.
 
Last year, Gov. Terry Branstad signed a bill into law that allows for the possession and use of cannabis oil to treat chronic epilepsy.
 
But the law does not provide any way for residents to make or distribute the oil in Iowa. It also prohibits other forms of medical marijuana, which is a huge problem for Iowans who suffer from other illnesses.
 
"Iowans are talking, and I hope you're listening. We need this option now, not years from now. Patients are suffering every day that could be saved or at the very least have their pain and symptoms eased,” Brandon Brase said Monday. Brase has Crohn’s disease.
 
The proposed legislation would create a program that monitors the production and distribution or medical marijuana in Iowa.
 
Democrats said it is similar to legislation in other states.
 
During his weekly press conference on Monday, Branstad said he doesn't know if any additional medical marijuana legislation will pass this session. He did say that he is open to working with the state of Illinois to allow Iowans to travel there to access the drug.
 
Illinois recently passed legislation for a pilot-program that allows companies to manufacture and distribute medical marijuana in the state.
 
Before anything is done, Branstad wants to discuss the issue further with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Program offers alternative punishment for marijuana charges

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 16th 2015 by THCFinder
alternative-punishmentHOUSTON -- If you want to know what it looks like to get caught with marijuana in Houston, picture cuffs on your wrists and a ride in a squad car.
 
But for certain offenders, that drive now has an alternate ending—not a jail cell, but a classroom.
 
It's called the First Chance Pilot Program.
 
People caught with up to two ounces of marijuana, who have never been in trouble before, won't be charged with a crime in Harris County as long as they finish eight hours of community service or an eight-hour class.
 
"You look at the positive consequences and the negative consequences," the teacher said, reading from a board in front of a class full of marijuana offenders. They're mostly late teens, many still in high school. But the subject of the day was learning how not to repeat a dumb mistake.
 
"Folks are much better off if we teach them how to make good decisions," said Dr. Brian Lovins, assistant director for the Harris County Community Supervision Corrections Department.
 
So the offenders learn how to turn away from risky behaviors to stay out of the justice system.
 
"It's like that slap on the wrist that's like, if you really want to change, you'll do it and you'll never face this problem again. But then if you stay the same way, then you'll come right back," said 17-year-old Abraham Arias, a program participant.
 
It's a cycle Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson is trying to break.
 
"We need to recognize who we're mad at and who we're scared of, and the people we're scared of, we're locking them up for as long as we can," said Anderson. "But what we need to start focusing on are the people who are making mistakes but can be salvaged."
 
About 400 marijuana offenders are going through First Chance right now. Since it started in October, close to 400 more have finished, with less than 50 dropping out.
 
"[That is] pretty phenomenal in the criminal justice world," said Anderson.
 
She's hoping to expand the approach to stop putting criminal charges on other low-level misdemeanors, like trespassing and petty shoplifting.

Terminate US Attorney Melinda Haag For Harassing California Medical Marijuana Caregivers And Patients

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

get-rid-of-haagBelow is a petition calling for the termination of United States District Attorney Melinda Haag. Melinda Haag has been on a mission to harass medical marijuana patients, caregivers, and dispensaries in California. It’s time for her to go. Below is more about the petition, which can be signed at this link here. As of this post, there are only 76 names on the petition. Haag’s actions affect far more lives than that, so tell everyone you know to sign it:

“United States Atty General for northern California Melinda Haag continues to harass legal medical marijuana caregivers. Google Harborside and her name to find out about some of what we are talking about We believe she has also used her position to intimidate cities into making unreasonable bans and restriction on medical marijuana caregivers and patients. Google San Jose medical marijuana crackdown to find out about some of what we are talking about. Melinda Haag’s continued actions also defy published orders from Washington to not pursue legal state operations.

The efficacy of medical marijuana has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt.

Patients who are denied safe, reasonable access to their medicine, suffer and die, therefore Melinda Haags service should be terminated.”
