Delaware House decriminalizes marijuana possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, June, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

WILMINGTON, Del. — Delaware House lawmakers on Tuesday approved legislation that would treat simple marijuana possession and personal use by adults like a traffic violation, replacing criminal penalties with civil fines.

The bill passed the House by a 24-14 vote, and now heads to the Senate. Gov. Jack Markell supports decriminalization. No House Republicans voted in favor of the legislation on Tuesday.

Some opponents said decriminalization would embolden drug dealers operating in a black market. Others say it could prevent police from initiating important searches on suspicion of simple marijuana possession.

Under language added by an amendment, Delawareans under the age of 18 would still face criminal penalties for possessing marijuana. Those between the ages of 18 and 21 would face criminal penalties upon their second arrest.

That change to the legislation caused angst among the bill's opponents and its supporters, who questioned why juveniles would be treated differently than adults when caught with pot.

Congress Voting On Numerous Amendments To Reign In Troubled DEA

As the U.S. House of Representatives considers the Fiscal Year 2016 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations bill today and tomorrow, legislators could vote on at least seven amendments designed to reduce the power of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and cut its budget.

The DEA has existed for more than 40 years, but little attention has been given to the role the agency has played in fueling mass incarceration, racial disparities and other problems exacerbated by the drug war. Congress has rarely scrutinized the agency, its actions or its budget, instead deferring to DEA administrators on how best to deal with drug-related issues.

That all has changed recently after a series of scandals that sparked several hearings in the House and Senate and forced the resignation of the DEA’s beleaguered head, Administrator Michele Leonhart.

“There’s unprecedented support on both sides of the aisle for ending the federal war on marijuana and letting states set their own drug policies based on science, compassion, health, and human rights,” said Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance. “The more the DEA blocks sensible reforms the more they will see their agency’s power and budget come under deeper scrutiny.”

The Drug Policy Alliance recently released a new report, The Scandal-Ridden DEA: Everything You Need to Know. The report and a comprehensive set of background resources about our campaign to rein in the DEA are available at:

Religious Cannabis Already Being Put to the Test in Rhode Island

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

While mainstream America waits to see if the drug enforcement agents will kick down the door of Indiana’s First Church of Cannabis and drop the hammer down on those attending its inaugural ceremony later this summer, recent reports indicate that reefer rituals are already being conducted in Rhode Island, and police are, for the most part, keeping their distance.

Earlier last month, members of The Healing Church gathered at the Roger Williams National Memorial in Providence, the pulse of religious freedom, to attend a worship service where cannabis use is sacramental. The organization managed to obtain a permit to hold church services on federal property, with the understanding that U.S. Park Rangers would likely be positioned along the sidelines to ensure none of the members actually smoked weed. 

To ward off the potential of an unsavory encounter with Uncle Sam’s henchmen, the group, which consisted of around 15 people, employed the use of various cannabis concoctions to skate by the government’s pesky “no smoking” rule. Alan Gordon, a representative for the church, who does not use the term “marijuana,” said that parishioners were anointed with cannabis oil and also consumed a fermented beverage originating from India called Bhang.

“Unlike the Indiana Church, we are sincere Judeo-Christian Bible-thumpers, who see "kaneh-bos" in Hebrew as the same plant as modern cannabis,” Gordon told HIGH TIMES. “We have express federal, state and city recognition of our religious right.”
