U.S. Defense Secretary Wants Pentagon to Employ Marijuana Users
Although the United States government still considers marijuana one of the most dangerous drugs in the world, the nation’s leading defense official says he does not believe a job applicant’s history with the herb should be a contributing factor in disqualifying them from military service.
Earlier this week, during TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF event, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter told those in attendance that the Pentagon would be open to hiring individuals that have experimented with marijuana. Answering a question about whether he would ever consider offering an engineering position to someone who may have smoked weed at the Burning Man festival, Carter replied, “yes, we can be flexible in that regard, and we need to.”

UK: Members of Parliament Call for Medical Marijuana to Be Made Legal
A year after an outpouring of support for a public petition, demanding the full legalization of marijuana, forced Parliament to give the issue some consideration, an influential group has emerged with plans to lobby for the legalization of medical marijuana for the entire scope of the United Kingdom.
Earlier this week, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Drug Policy Reform published a new report suggesting that the British government should legalize medical marijuana—retail sale and home cultivation—because a considerable number of patients are now being driven into the black market to gain access to this medicine.
