DNC Chair Accepts Huge Donations from Alcohol PACs, Claims Pot Is a Gateway Drug

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, U.S. Representative for Florida and head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said she opposed legalization of marijuana and called it a gateway drug.

“I don’t oppose the use of medical marijuana," she said. "I just don’t think we should legalize more mind-altering substances if we want to make it less likely that people travel down the path toward using drugs. We have had a resurgence of drug use instead of a decline. There is a huge heroin epidemic.”

Considering that there is a known correlation (one acknowledged by the U.S. government) between heroin addiction and the over-prescription of opiate painkillers, such as Oxycontin, it seems odd that Schultz is resorting to false equivalencies by equating opiates and pot.

Gary Johnson Announces Bid for Presidency, Says Marijuana Advocates Do Not Equal Political Benefits

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, January, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

With a belief that marijuana should be made legal at the federal level, Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico who became the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee back in 2012, has made the decision to resign from his position as CEO with a major medical marijuana corporation in an effort to make another bid for the White House in 2016.

It was during an appearance on Fox Business earlier this week when Johnson, who is now 63-years-old, told host Neil Cavuto that he was once again seeking the nomination from the Libertarian Party. Just days before, it was revealed in a press release that Johnson was stepping down as the top dog at Cannabis Sativa, Inc to pursue “political opportunities.”

Some of the latest financial data reveals the company’s stocks have been sinking since March 2015, which may have had some influence on Johnson’s decision to jump ship and get back into politics.

Vermont Governor Expresses Support For Marijuana Legalization In State Of The State Address

Category: News | Posted on Thu, January, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

vermont marijuana decriminalizationToday Vermont’s Governor Peter Shumlin delivered his State of the State address. A significant portion of it involved marijuana legalization. Governor Shumlin came out with strong statements in support of marijuana legalization. 2016 is going to be a big year for marijuana legalization, and Vermont is considered by many to be one of the most likely states to legalize marijuana via legislative action, which has yet to happen in America. Below is what Peter Shumlin said today, via activist Matt Simon’s Facebook page:

“The outdated War on Drugs has also failed, and there is no greater example than our nation’s marijuana laws. That’s why Vermont took steps to change our criminal penalties and to institute a well-regulated medical marijuana system that now serves 2,400 Vermonters. This careful approach shows thatwe know how to regulate marijuana thoughtfully and cautiously, avoiding the pitfalls that have caused other states to stumble where Vermont succeeded.

But the black market of drug dealers selling marijuana for recreational use is alive and well, serving over 80,000 Vermonters who reported using marijuana last year. These illegal dealers couldn’t care less how young their customers are or what’s in the product they sell, or what illegal drugs you buy from their stash, much less whether they pay taxes on their earnings. That’s why I will work with you to craft the right bill that thoughtfully and carefully eliminates the era of prohibition that is currently failing us so miserably.
