Idaho Medical Marijuana Petition Is Available For Circulation Now

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder
 

marijuana cannabis idaho threeIdaho’s Cannabis Laws are outdated and make criminals out of non-violent, responsible (and often extremely ill) citizens.

In 2010, Boise State University conducted a survey that showed 74% of Idahoans supported Medical Marijuana. ‚ÄčIMAGINE WHAT THAT NUMBER IS TODAY!!

The Idaho Legislature’s most current efforts for Medical Marijuana was an affirmative defense law for CBD ONLY oil to give to epileptic children, but it stalled in the House Committee.

It is obvious, that our legislators ARE NOT speaking for us.  So it is time to speak for ourselves. It’s Time for  a New Approach!

Our initiative “Idaho’s New Approach to Cannabis” was first submitted to the Idaho Secretary of State on February 20th, 2015, with the final draft submitted on March 25th, 2015. It is now available for circulation.

We need valid signatures from 6% of the voting population in at least 18 of Idaho’s legislative districts, or 6% of the general voting population in Idaho (47,623 signatures), which ever is greater.

(6% Statewide is greater so our goal is 50,000)

We must have all validated signatures turned in by April 30th, 2016 to put it on the ballot for the November 2016 election.

The petition is available on our website, www.LegalizeIdaho.org, with circulation instructions for volunteers to help gather signatures.

Keypoints include:
– Idaho Medical Marijuana Act, which allows for 8oz & 12 plants for qualifying patients, as well as Medical Marijuana Organizations for the dispensary of medicine to qualified patients.

President Obama Commutes Sentences of 22 Prisoners of the Drug War

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

The United States has become the land of the free once again for several prisoners of the domestic drug war. Earlier this week, President Obama used his executive authority to commute the sentences of 22 individuals incarcerated for drug-related offenses, a move that more than doubled the number of commutations the president has granted since moving into the White House nearly seven years ago.

This act of clemency was all part of an effort to reduce federal mandatory minimum sentencing. The men and women whose names found their way to the president’s list of absolution had been convicted of a variety of offenses ranging from the distribution of methamphetamine and heroin to the cultivation of marijuana. Eight of the 22 released from the shackles of an “outdated sentencing regime” were serving life in prison without the possibility for parole for their indiscretions with powders and plants.

According to a statement from White House counsel Neil Eggleston, “Had they been sentenced under current laws and policies, many of these individuals would have already served their time and paid their debt to society. Because many were convicted under an outdated sentencing regime, they served years — in some cases more than a decade — longer than individuals convicted today of the same crime.”

To qualify for this round of commutations, petitioners must have displayed a clean prison record and given no indication that they would pose a threat to civil society upon their release. In a letter sent to the 22 individuals, President Obama explained that they have been selected because they demonstrated the potential to turn their lives around.

“Now it is up to you to make the most of this opportunity,” Obama wrote. “It will not be easy, and you will confront many who doubt people with criminal records can change. Perhaps even you are unsure of how you will adjust to your new circumstances.”

The Obama Administration has made it a part of their mission to take a stand against mass incarceration in the United States, announcing earlier last year a plan to chip away at mandatory minimums while making it easier for non-violent offenders to apply for clemency. To make this a reality, the Justice Department expanded its criteria for clemency in 2014 to include six eligibility requirements that moves drug offenders, who have served at least 10 years with no history of violence or organized crime affiliation, to the top of the list.

NFL Superstar Blasts the League's Marijuana Policy

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

Retired football star Ricky Williams is speaking out against the NFL's marijuana policy in an exclusive, tell-all interview with The National Marijuana News. In 2004, Williams made headlines by retiring from professional football after testing positive for pot and being served with a $650,000 fine and a four-game suspension.

He's not the only former NFL player to call on the NFL to allow marijuana. A few weeks ago, former Broncos tight end Nate Jackson said he believes the NFL will have no choice but to remove cannabis from its list of banned substances.
