Obama Must Explain His Broken Promise on Medical Marijuana, and Soon

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, October, 20th 2011 by THCFinder
President Obams's chances of re-election seem to be getting smaller and smaller with his flip flopping and broken promises.
 
This week's news that support for the legalization of marijuana has reached a record high of 50% ought to bother Obama's re-election team a little bit. No, not because pot's more popular than the president, although that really says a lot. The problem, rather, is that Obama's heavily publicized and widely praised promise to respect state medical marijuana laws has recently been shattered into more pieces than the campaign can count.
 
In only a few short months, the Obama administration has presided over a vicious series of political assaults on medical marijuana patients and providers across the nation, carried out by numerous federal agencies. The situation just continues to get more ugly and insane from one week to the next:
 
Federal prosecutors have threatened to arrest state employees for administering state laws, resulting in stalled programs and reduced patient access.
 
U.S. Attorneys in California recently revived the Bush era tactic of threatening to seize property from landlords who rent to medical marijuana facilities.
 
After 9 years of failing to respond, the DEA recently denied a petition to reschedule marijuana, ignoring a vast body of scientific evidence proving the drug's medical efficacy.
 
Federal threats have caused numerous banks to close the accounts of businesses that provide medical marijuana to qualified patients.
 
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms issued a surprising statement that medical marijuana patients may not purchase firearms.
 
The IRS is shaking down medical marijuana providers for millions of dollars based on an obscure tax provision aimed at drug traffickers.
 
A federal prosecutor even threatened to target newspapers that run ads for medical marijuana services.
 
And, of course, the DEA continues to raid tax-paying businesses that are legal under state law.

GOP Candidate Johnson Would Pardon Nonviolent Marijuana Users

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, October, 20th 2011 by THCFinder

Finally a Governor who sees the downfall of arresting people for simple Marijuana charges. We can only hope more politicians will follow this route and stop prosecuting and arresting citizens for simple posession charges.

(RTTNews) - Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson said on Wednesday that he would consider adopting a policy that would pardon nonviolent marijuana cases that are currently serving prison terms.
 
Johnson, a long shot candidate to land the Republican Party's 2012 presidential nomination, said that people who smoke pot may make up the largest voting bloc in the nation.
 
Johnson said that as many as 50 percent of people in the United States have at one time or another used marijuana - and they don't want to be thought of as criminals.
 
According to a recent Gallup Poll, a record 50 percent of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana at this time - suggesting that it could become an issue in a presidential election in the near future.

Colorado to formally ask DEA to designate pot Schedule II controlled substance

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 20th 2011 by THCFinder

If Colorado is successful this could be a game changer for the entire industry and may finally give some relief to medical marijuana patients in neeed.

The Drug Enforcement Administration dubs marijuana a Schedule I controlled substance -- meaning it has no accepted medical use. Switching pot to Schedule II, like morphine and cocaine, among other drugs, would instantly change the dynamic between the feds and medical marijuana states. And a Colorado spokesman confirms that his agency will make such a request by year's end.
 
Not that the state has a choice. Hidden within the language of House Bill 1284, the 2010 measure that established the regulatory structure for medical marijuana in Colorado, is a passage that enumerates the powers and duties of the state licensing authority. Under the heading "The state licensing authority shall," the seventh of them reads:
 
"IN RECOGNITION OF THE POTENTIAL MEDICINAL VALUE OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA, MAKE A REQUEST BY JANUARY 1, 2012, TO THE FEDERAL DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION TO CONSIDER RESCHEDULING, FOR PHARMACEUTICAL PURPOSES, MEDICAL MARIJUANA FROM A SCHEDULE I CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE TO A SCHEDULE II CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE."

Medical marijuana could change the rules for AZ businesses

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, October, 20th 2011 by THCFinder

Will Arizona medical marijuana patients be able to take their medication while working or on a lunch break? These are just a few of the questions being asked as Arizonas medical marijuana laws are hopefully start taking effect soon.

PHOENIX (KPHO) -
We still don't know when or even if Arizona's voter-approved medical marijuana law will get the all clear to take effect, but it's already causing a shake-up with employers.
 
CBS 5 News wanted to know what local bosses are doing to get ready.
 
"Did you ever think you'd have to come up with a whole new set of rules for something like marijuana?" asked reporter Elizabeth Erwin.
 
"No, I really didn't," said Chandler Unified School District Board President Barb Mozdzen.
 
It's something the board has already done.
 
They've even written a brand new policy to cover it.
 
"Like alcohol and tobacco, we prohibit the use of marijuana on the campuses, whether it's medical marijuana or illegal drug," Mozdzen said.
 
There are some noticeable differences from regular marijuana rules.
 
"If you are a medical marijuana user at home and you still have traces of marijuana in your system and there is a drug test done, that does not count against you," Mozdzen said.
 
Which begs the question: What about the millions of other working Arizonans? What if someone in your office has their card?
 
Their bosses will have to decide if medical marijuana is OK to be smoked at work.
 
State law already states you can't drive if you're under the influence, but will people be able to bring it into the office?
 
Smoke it on their lunch break?
 
Arizona businesses are working with their human resources departments to answer all these questions.
