DC's New Attorney General Says Marijuana Legalization Can Proceed
Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, January, 5th 2015 by THCFinder
During the 2014 Election, Washington D.C. voters overwhelmingly passed a marijuana legalization initiative. Attempts by politicians outside of D.C. to prevent implementation were swift. Provisions added to the federal spending bill by members of Congress suggested that the marijuana legalization initiative would not become a reality. However, after a lot of analysis, and poor wording in the federal spending bill, it appears that attempts to stop implementation didn’t work. Washington D.C.’s new Attorney General agrees. Per the Washington Post:
Racine will have an opportunity to make an immediate splash: His office must review the implications of the closely watched marijuana legalization measure that D.C. voters approved overwhelmingly on Nov. 4 but that has since been subject to a congressional attempt to overturn it.
In an interview, Racine made clear that he would seek to uphold the ballot initiative, saying that the language included in the recent federal spending bill may block future attempts to loosen marijuana controls but not the Nov. 4 vote. His stance comports with the interpretation put forward by Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) and other D.C. and Democratic officials.
“We think Initiative 71 was basically self-enacted, just as the congresswoman does,” Racine said. “And we think there’s good support for that position, and we’re going to support that position.”
I cannot wait until there is legal recreational marijuana being grown in our nation’s capital. I would also like to see a thriving industry there, but I especially want to see average citizens growing their own marijuana in their own homes. That’s something I have been waiting to see for a long time. Hopefully people like Andy Harris will give up and realize that they can’t stop the winds of change, and that the reefer madness era in D.C. is over.

Colorado Marijuana Remains Untested For Chemicals

One of the expected benefits of having marijuana sold in stores is the belief that the quality will be outstanding. Some stoners that buy weed from street dealers know that the buds can sometimes be contaminated with mold, mildew, mite eggs, and possibly even the sour taste of a smell-masking agent that seeped in to the weed while in transit. But while Washington state has been testing their marijuana for contaminants for the last six months, Colorado hasn’t been. Washington marijuana enforcement could explain most of the details of the state testing, while Colorado’s couldn’t even inform USA Today of potency test results.
The rocky mountain state has been struggling to define the criteria for testing contaminated marijuana and as of right now, there is only potency tests of marijuana products. As said above, even those results are somewhat iffy. “We made the decision from the beginning this was going to be an open and transparent system,” Washington State Liquor Board Spokesperson Brian Smith said. “We made it available so all of the people who really wanted this could have access to it pretty regularly.” If a tourist heading to Washington wants to know specifics of the marijuana business in the state, they can visit the website and find all sorts of information from the enforcement of the laws to the names of the edibles that are being sold.
Colorado hopes to begin their testing of contaminated marijuana in early 2015. State officials are still working on implementing their testing structure. It also remains unknown if the state will allow the results of these tests to be published on their website. This includes the results of how much of the cannabis in Colorado is contaminated. “We need to highlight that,” Senator Owen Hill (R-Colorado Springs) said. “I think it’s our job to make that more important and I appreciate your work in making it more important too.” Hopes remain high that the marijuana in Colorado isn’t too shifty when it comes to contaminants.
Aspen Launches Marijuana Education Program For Tourists

Not everyone is a seasoned marijuana user. Those that are flocking to Colorado and Washington to experience legal weed sometimes have never smoked a joint before in their lives. Not only that but edibles effect people far differently, depending on who you are. The sherifs in Aspen, Colorado are working on a solution to this problem however. They are implementing an educational program geared towards the skiers and snowboarders that crowd the area during the winter. This new program starts right when visitors get off of the plane, as the airport has added a brochure on marijuana legalization in the state.
Pat Bingham, a spokesperson for the airport in Aspen, says “It’s the brochure rack and it has information on everything from trails on the ski areas to a day at the Aspen Club and now, the local guide to retail marijuana.” As of right now, the brochure doesn’t seem to be that popular but the busy season hasn’t started yet. The brochure contains the most frequently asked questions regarding the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, including how much tourists are allowed to consume, where you can consume it, and how long different highs take to set it.
Joe DiSalvo is the sherif in Aspen and formed a coalition in 2012 with the hospital, school district, and the business community to push a heavy education program about pot. “When the legalization of marijuana happened, we all agreed that while we may not agree with it, we agree that we have to roll this out real responsibly with a heavy, heavy, heavy educational campaign,” DiSalvo says. The brochure is the coalitions first step towards educating people on marijuana when they come to Colorado.
The goal of the group is to make sure that there are as many brochures as possible circulating the tourists hands this busy season. With many hotels in the area carrying the informational packets, there are also lodges, stores, and other public buildings that are stocking up to educate the people.
