Senator Graham Lends Support To Comprehensive Medical Marijuana Bill

Yesterday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined the bipartisan Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act (S. 683) as a co-sponsor. The support of Senator Graham coincides with the one-year anniversary of the bill’s introduction by Senators Cory Booker (D-NY), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and Rand Paul (R-KY).  The CARERS Act is the most comprehensive piece of medical cannabis legislation ever introduced in the U.S. Congress and would remedy the state-federal conflict over medical cannabis law.

“Graham’s support of CARERS Act is a significant step for patients” said Americans for Safe Access Executive Director, Steph Sherer. “This development should finally compel fellow Republican and Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley to allow the bill a vote. This is the only way to respect the 40 states that have laws recognizing medical use and the more than 80% of voters who support it.”

The passage of the CARERS Act  would allow state medical marijuana programs to continue without federal interference, move marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II of the Controlled Substance Schedule, remove the marijuana compound Cannabidiol (CBD) entirely from the schedule, create access to banking services for marijuana businesses in legal states, eliminate the DEA-mandated “NIDA-monopoly” that prevents researchers from obtaining marijuana for clinical studies, and allow Veterans Health Administration physicians to write recommendations in states that have established a medical marijuana program.

MA Committee Fears Marijuana Legalization, Recommends Strict Regulations

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Special Senate Committee On Marijuana released a reportanalyzing the potential “policy ramifications” of legalized marijuana for recreational use—a reform voters will decide on November’s ballot. While claiming that the committee had not taken “an official position” on the legalization initiative, the report boasts a dearth of reasons why marijuana legalization could be harmful to the state and is mute on the potential benefits of the policy change. 

The report cites “concerns” that marijuana legalization may increase youth access, stoned drivers would endanger residents and tax revenues would not offset spending on the social consequences of legalization. Other pressing issues were edible marijuana products marketed as appealing to children, the persistence of the black market post-legalization and suggested that high-THC marijuana may make the drug more “addictive” today than it was in the past.

Donate To The New Approach Missouri 2016 Medical Marijuana Campaign

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

donate relocation fund medical marijuana patientsI have stated many times that a marijuana reform victory in Missouri would be a marijuana reform victory for the entire nation. Many states have reformed marijuana laws in parts of the country where such a move is more expected (Northeast, West Coast). However, if Missouri were to legalize medical marijuana, it would send a message to the rest of the country that reform is here to stay, and that reform is possible in every state.

There are a lot of very, very hardworking activists in Missouri that have been fighting for reform for a long time. One of those activists is Amber Iris Langston. I have had the wonderful opportunity of getting to know here better while fighting alongside her in the reform trenches, and got to finally meet her face to face in November. She has a lot of passion, is extremely talented, and wants nothing more than to bring safe access to medical marijuana in Missouri. Below is a fundraising letter that she wrote that I want to pass along. Whether you are a national funder, a first time contributor, believe in compassion, and/or just want to help reform outdated, harmful marijuana laws, please consider making a donation to the Missouri campaign. Below is the fundraising letter I’m talking about, and if you have any questions for Amber, e-mail her at amber@newapproachmissouri.com :
