Obama Commutes Sentences of 42 Drug War POWs

Category: Politics | Posted on Tue, June, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Last week, President Barack Obama announced that he had commuted the sentences of 42 inmates convicted of drug offenses as part of his ongoing effort against "outdated and unduly harsh sentencing laws."

The White House statement said: "The individuals receiving a presidential commutation today have more than repaid their debt to society and earned this second chance."

The 42 were serving sentences of up to life in prison for non-violent offenses. The statement noted that Obama has now commuted the sentences of 348 such convicts—more than the past seven presidents combined.

However, these figures have to be kept in perspective. Nearly 10,000 non-violent offenders who would have likely received substantially lower sentences if convicted of the same offenses today have applied to the White House for clemency. The list is getting longer, not shorter.

West Virginia Legislators Propose Bill To End Marijuana Prohibition

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

west virginia medical marijuanaGood news out of West Virginia today. See the legislative alert I received below:

The West Virginia Legislature failed to reform its marijuana policies in the 2015-2016 legislative session, primarily because House Speaker Tim Armstead continues to oppose even the most modest, incremental reforms. Fortunately, now that a special session has been called, five delegates have decided this is an opportunity to raise the issue of marijuana legalization. Del. Mike Pushkin (D-Charleston) and a bipartisan group of four co-sponsors have introduced HB 114, which would make marijuana legal on a limited basis in West Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail published an editorial praising these legislators’ efforts, calling legalization an “excellent idea.” The Gazette-Mail noted that the bill “has no chance” of passing in the special session, but it still presents an important opportunity to raise the issue with elected officials.

Please take a moment to contact your delegates and senators today and urge them to consider the benefits of ending marijuana prohibition.

Then, please share this message with your family and friends.

Sincerely,

Matt Simon
New England Political Director

New Poll Shows Majority of US Voters Approve of Marijuana Use for Vets with PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

According to a new Quinnipiac University poll released on Monday, most American voters believe that veterans suffering from PTSD should have access to marijuana in pill form. By a margin of 87 to 9 percent, voters agreed that VA doctors should be allowed to prescribe medi-pot to vets, with support at 79 percent or high among every party, gender, age or racial group listed. 

“If you serve your country and suffer for it, you deserve every health remedy available, including medical marijuana in pill form," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, in a statement. "That is the full-throated recommendation of Americans across the demographic spectrum, including voters in military households. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is debilitating and life-threatening. The response from voters should take political considerations out of the debate and allow doctors to do what’s best for veterans."
