Colorado State University To Study Marijuana Legalization’s Impact On Communities

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

aurora colorado marijuanaIn the lead up to the successful marijuana legalization vote in Colorado in 2012, marijuana opponent Kevin Sabet made the outlandish claim that for every dollar that marijuana legalization would generate for Colorado, there would be ten dollars in ‘social costs.’ These ‘social costs’ include policing stoned drivers, dealing with an uptick in addiction, and a bunch of other stuff that never really became reality. Kevin Sabet has been blasted many times for trying that scare tactic, and rightfully so.

The impact that marijuana legalization has had on Colorado communities has been very positive. Jobs are being created, and tax revenues are being generated. Those marijuana tax dollars are helping schools and homeless communities in Colorado. There are even scholarships set up which are funded by marijuana tax revenues. In every measurable way cannabis legalization is working in Colorado. Colorado State University-Pueblo recently received funding to study what the actual impact marijuana legalization has had on Colorado communities. Per The Denver Channel:

On Monday, Pueblo County officials agreed to provide up to $270,000 in funding to research the impact of marijuana on the community and the efficacy of treating various issues, like post-traumatic stress disorder, with medical marijuana.

Also, a new law calls for $900,000 from Colorado’s Marijuana Tax Cash Fund to be given to CSU-Pueblo for cannabis research. Governor John Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 191 on Monday, June 6.

NY’s Medical Marijuana Program Leading to a Nation of ‘No Smoke, No Grow’ Laws

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

It has been said, “As goes New York, so goes the nation,” a phrase which, in the grand scheme of nationwide efforts to reform marijuana laws, could indicate that cut-rate medicinal cannabis programs are destined to continue surfacing across the country—making a natural medicine too expensive for the average patient to afford.

Since New York officially launched its medical marijuana program six months ago, there has been a lot of concern that the state’s vision for marijuana medicine has made it next to impossible for almost everyone involved to reap any benefit. A recent report from the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) has found that the majority of those currently enrolled in the program are confronted with too many barriers to even participate.

University Of Missouri Ignores Warnings, Censors Student Support For Marijuana Reform

One of my favorite times of my life was when I was in college. I didn’t take the typical route that many other people take. I didn’t go to college right after high school, and started attending after I had lived quite a few years as an adult. I had to fight hard to get my life to a point where I could make college work, and I like to think that’s a big part of why my college experience meant so much to me.

It was while I was studying in college that I first learned about blogs, and how blogs can be used with great effect to spread awareness. I learned a lot about freedom of speech and expression, and how important of a right it was to be able to express political views in particular. I supported cannabis reform throughout college, and was fortunate enough to go to a university that respected my outspoken support for reform.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case everywhere. I read a story recently involving the University of Missouri censoring political speech on campus. Per Foundation for Individual Rights in Education:

Despite repeated warnings that it is violating the First Amendment rights of its students, the University of Missouri (Mizzou) refuses to allow a recognized student group to create T-shirts featuring a cannabis leaf and the university’s name.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has twice warned Mizzou that its treatment of the campus chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (MU NORML) violates the First Amendment.
