Rhode Island Poll: 55% Support For Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

rhode island medical marijuana dispensaryRhode Island lawmakers are making a final push before the current session ends. One of the bills they are considering is H 7752, which is known as the ‘Marijuana Regulation, Control, and Taxation Act.’ It would make possession of limited amounts of marijuana legal for adults 21 years of age and older, and it would establish a tightly controlled system of licensed marijuana cultivation sites, testing facilities, and retail stores. Rhode Island was near the top of many lists related to states most likely to be the first to legalize recreational marijuana via legislative action.

A recent poll was conducted by Brown University which found strong support for such a public policy change. Per Brown University:

A strong majority of Rhode Island voters, 67 percent, support the state’s current law allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes. A majority, 55 percent, support passing a law to regulate and tax the use of marijuana for recreational use, similarly to how alcohol is taxed and regulated. Voters 44 and younger strongly supported this change, at 72 percent, with voters 65 and older split — 43 percent approve and 42 oppose.

Poll respondents were asked whether they have ever tried marijuana. Forty-one percent said yes, with 34 percent of female respondents and 49 percent of male respondents saying they had tried marijuana at least once. Just 3 percent of respondents refused to answer the question. Of those who have tried marijuana, 12 percent said they had used marijuana in the past 30 days, with 15 percent saying they have used within the past year.

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected a lawsuit brought forth by Oklahoma and Nebraska demanding the immediate shutdown of the Colorado cannabis industry, a new report indicates the two prohibition states have not stopped devising war tactics to sabotage legal weed.

According to the Denver Post, Oklahoma and Nebraska have taken a clever approach to dismantling the marijuana industry in Colorado by petitioning the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to have their complaint integrated with a couple of other pot-related cases in an effort to bring down the hammer against recreational pot sales in a collective argument.

White House sits down with marijuana law reformers today

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

Just a few weeks after staging a huge smoke-in at the White House gates, cannabis law reform advocates are getting a meeting with the Obama Administration today.

DC Marijuana Justice (DCMJ) co-founders Adam Eidinger and Nikolas Schiller, who led Washington D.C.’s successful marijuana legalization initiative in 2014, are scheduled to meet with an unnamed policy advisor this morning in the White House, according to DCMJ releases.

The goal: discuss why cannabis does not deserve to be federally designated as among the most dangerous substances on the planet.

That designation has increasingly come under fire by lawmakers, researchers, doctors and the public. About 61 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana.
