Ohioans For Medical Marijuana Submit Initiative Petition To State A.G.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

ohioans for medical marijuana mppBackers of a proposed 2016 ballot measure to establish a comprehensive medical marijuana program in Ohio submitted their initiative petition to the Ohio Attorney General on Thursday with more than 2,000 signatures.

The office has 10 days to examine the official summary of the initiative and confirm the petition contains at least 1,000 valid signatures of Ohio voters. The petition will then be sent to the Ohio Ballot Board, which will have 10 days to review the measure and confirm it complies with Ohio initiative laws. Initiative backers will then need to collect an additional 305,591 valid signatures of Ohio voters by early July in order to qualify for the November ballot.

Ohioans for Medical Marijuana, a campaign committee formed by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), posted the full initiative text, the official initiative summary, and a Q&A with MPP Executive Director Rob Kampia on its website earlier this week at https://www.ohioansformmj.org/initiative.

“This initiative was drafted to ensure seriously ill Ohioans have safe and legal access to medical marijuana if their doctors believe it will alleviate their pain and suffering,” said MPP communications director Mason Tvert. “The one benefit of not already having a medical marijuana law is that we were able to incorporate the best practices and lessons learned from the 23 states that do have one.”

Maine Fails to Get Recreational Marijuana Initiative on the Ballot

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

One of marijuana legalization’s projected sure things for 2016 was dealt a significant blow earlier this week that could prevent Maine voters from having the opportunity to approve a recreational cannabis industry in the November election.

The Secretary of State’s office in Maine revealed on Wednesday that a proposed ballot initiative aimed at ending prohibition did not have enough valid signatures to be added to the ballot. It seems that while the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol (CRMLA) submitted 99,229 signatures in February, the state is claiming that only 51,543 of them can be verified. This puts the initiative 9,580 signatures shy of being able to move on to the next phase of their campaign – a situation that could sabotage the entire effort.

Protest Plan Calls for Huge Crowd to Smoke Marijuana Outside White House to Push Obama to Do Something While He Still Can

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Inspired by a warning from comedian Bill Maher that progress on marijuana reform could be rolled back after President Obama leaves office, pot advocates in the nation's capital have announced a bold protest next month to press Obama to move on marijuana while he still can.

 

 

While Obama has largely not interfered with marijuana legalization in states that have approved it, he has also signaled that he is not going to be proactive on the issue. A little more than a month ago, he said marijuana reform is not on his list of end-of-term priorities, and his press spokesperson, Josh Earnest, paraphrased his position thusly: "'If you feel so strongly about it, and you believe there is so much public support for what it is that you're advocating, then why don't you pass legislation about it and we'll see what happens.'"
