Congressman Earl Blumenauer Calls for DEA Chief Rosenberg to Be Fired

Category: Politics | Posted on Mon, November, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

Acting DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg brought some heat down on himself earlier this month when he called the concept of medical marijuana “a joke.” Since then, several prominent activists have been pressuring the Obama Administration to dismiss Rosenberg from his post. It even prompted the national advocacy group the Marijuana Majority to launch a petition against the nation’s leading drug enforcer that has so far garnered over 93,000 signatures. 

However, the heat generated by Rosenberg’s loose lips has now become a raging inferno, prompting federal lawmakers to take a stand against his ignorance this week on Capitol Hill. On Wednesday,Congressman Earl Blumenauer took to the House floor to call upon Uncle Sam to provide the nation with a new DEA head that falls more in line with the opinions of the American majority. 

Calling Rosenberg a “joke” and “an example of an inept, misinformed zealot,” Blumenauer argued that the attitudes over well over half the United States population does not stand behind the failed drug war policies that the leader of the DEA insists on propagating across the land.

D.C. smells like marijuana, and residents don’t really care

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, November, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

The smell near the Columbia Heights Metro station Wednesday night was unmistakable. A lit joint in hand, Tony Lee stood outside a residence talking with friends as the evening bustle passed them by, no one paying the group of men any special attention.

“The community I’m in, everyone engages in smoking,” said Lee, 34, a District resident who runs his own small construction firm. Plus, he said, if he’s not smoking, he detects the odor of other people getting high throughout the city on a daily basis anyway.

“I’ve grown accustomed to it,” he said.

This casual attitude to marijuana — and the distinctive waft that accompanies the smoking of it — seems to be the new norm in the District in the year since the city voted to legalize possession of small amounts of pot.

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) today signed on as a co-sponsor to the Marijuana Businesses Access to Banking Act of 2015 (S.1726), bipartisan legislation originally introduced by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), which would give state-compliant cannabis businesses access to the banking system. Sen. Reid’s support for the banking measure comes as Nevada’s medical marijuana program has begun serving patients around the state.

“Medical cannabis providers in Nevada are giving compassionate care to critically ill patients, and they shouldn’t be putting themselves in danger to do it,” said NCIA executive director Aaron Smith. “We thank Senator Reid for supporting a fix to an irrational policy that puts people at risk and forces businesses and state officials to deal with massive logistical issues.

“Ending the banking crisis would be a win for everyone from patients to regulators to small business owners, and we appreciate Senator Reid standing up for his constituents.”

S.1726 would open up banking access for state-legal cannabis businesses by protecting financial institutions against prosecution or asset forfeiture for providing services to those businesses. Sen. Reid and Sen. Merkley are joined on the bill by Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Rand Paul (R-KY), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Patty Murray (D-WA), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
