O.C. Sheriff on plunge in marijuana-related arrests: 'It's essentially decriminalized already'

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, January, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

At the height of recent anti-reefer madness, law enforcement slapped 7,440 people in Orange County with marijuana-related misdemeanor arrests.

That was in 2009. A mere five years later – thanks to a 2010 law that made possession of up to one ounce of marijuana a civil infraction, akin to rolling through a stop sign – pot-related misdemeanors had plunged a stunning 93 percent, to just 548.

The story was much the same throughout California, with marijuana misdemeanors down 90 percent between 2008 and 2014.

As pot legalization initiatives proceed toward California’s November ballot and rhetoric gets hotter, the numbers belie any argument that legalizing marijuana will clear out California’s jails. They’re pretty clear of pot-related offenses already.

Florida Medical Marijuana Campaign Is Very Close To Verified Signature Goal

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

united for care florida medical marijuanaI received some very good news from the Florida medical marijuana campaign today. It sounds like they campaign only needs roughly 45k valid signatures to make the ballot again. Ballots are still being counted, and the signature goal could be met very soon. Below is an update I received from the campaign today:

Over a million petitions have been turned in, and now it’s down to the final week, waiting as the Supervisors of Elections in each county finish processing them. As of this afternoon, we only have 45,823 left to be validated to hit our goal of 683,149 petitions.

I am confident we have turned in enough petitions to make the ballot by the deadline next week—and once we do, we are almost certainly going to be Amendment 2 again.

In 2014, we got 58% of the vote—more than the Governor—despite having more money spent against us than all of the previous opposition campaigns in any state combined.  Still, they managed to overwhelm certain parts of the state with lies, and we simply didn’t have adequate funding to push back hard enough.

Denver NORML Vows to Legalize Social Pot Use

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

The question of whether to allow on-site pot consumption throughout the city of Denver has been the subject of controversial debate for the past year. So far, activists and local officials have not yet been able to find a common ground to put in front of voters. It is this indefinite stalling at the negotiation table that has promoted a newly organized chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) to jump into the mix in an attempt to put the issue of social pot consumption—and possibly even cannabis cafes—on the ballot in 2016.

In the summer of last year, the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), the organization credited with the success of Colorado's Amendment 64, announced that they were putting together an initiative aimed at allowing pot to be smoked in designated areas of establishments where alcohol is served. It was called the “Limited Social Marijuana Consumption Initiative,” and its intended purpose was to give bars and restaurants the freedom to designate a portion of their physical dwelling to those who wanted to partake in recreational marijuana.
