Washington DC Council Reverses Opposition To Regulated Spaces To Consume Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

washington dc marijuanaToday the Council of the District of Columbia voted to halt consideration of legislation that would permanently ban adult consumption of marijuana outside the home, and instead moved forward with the creation of a taskforce to explore the establishment of regulated places where adults can legally consume marijuana in the District.

“The will of District voters was upheld today by the Council, which voted unanimously to move forward on establishing regulated places where adults can consume marijuana,” said Kaitlyn Boecker with the Drug Policy Alliance. “One year ago this Council voted unanimously to ban such spaces, stripping residents of their rights under Initiative 71, but today Councilmembers righted that wrong and voted for reform,” said Boecker.

Initiative 71, which was overwhelmingly approved by District voters in 2014, legalized the possession of up to two ounces marijuana for adults over the age of 21, and allowed individuals to grow up to six plants in their home. The implementation of Ballot Initiative 71 in the District has resulted in an unprecedented drop in arrests forpossession of marijuana. D.C. laws prevented the ballot initiative from addressing the taxation and sale of marijuana, which requires action by the D.C. Council. However more than a year ago, Congress blocked D.C. lawmakers from using locally raised public funds to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol. Shortly after Initiative 71 took effect last year, Mayor Bowser and the Council passed emergency legislationbanning all marijuana consumption outside a residence (even in private membership clubs). Advocates decried the legislation as poorly drafted, unnecessary and overly broad – going so far as to shut down any business where a single patron is caught.

Maine: Medical Marijuana Industry Call Organizers Working to End Prohibition “Scumbags”

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

While a national cannabis advocacy group works to bring down the beast of prohibitionary times for every adult citizen in the state of Maine, proponents for medical use have chosen to fight the organizers of this all-important mission rather than tender their support because they believe that full legalization will breed the evils of Big Marijuana.

When representatives for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol showed up at the Secretary of State’s office in Augusta on Monday to deliver over 100,000 signatures supporting their initiative aimed at legalizing recreational herb, members of the medical sector, who seem to oppose the concept of anyone other than “patients” being allowed to freely use cannabis, were waiting along the sidelines to aggressively persecute the group for wanting to tax and regulate weed in a manner similar to beer.

Here's a Map of Every State and Their Marijuana Laws

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

This year could be big one for marijuana legalization, with states like Arizona, Maine and Vermont likely to jump on the bandwagon, which is already led by Alaska, Colorado and Washington. As of June, marijuana was legalized in some way in 23 states and Washington D.C, proving that a revolution is already underway.

But federally, marijuana is still considered a Schedule I drug — along with heroin and LSD — meaning that it has a high potential for abuse. That's left both the industry and consumers in a confusing gray area, since in states like Washington, people over the age of of 21 can walk into a commercial dispensary to buy an ounce of marijuana.
