Trump Finally Declares Opioid Epidemic A Public Health Emergency

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

Today marks the day that President of the United States Donald Trump finally declares opioid epidemic a public health emergency. And then did absolutely nothing more about it. Meanwhile, his right-hand man, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, used the declaration to bolster his own anti-cannabis agenda.

After months of urging and prodding, Trump finally delivered. Well, kind of. He almost did. Trump declares opioid epidemic a public health emergency. It’s not exactly what drug addiction and public health experts have been asking for though. They have been vying for a declaration of a national emergency. That kind of declaration would have prompted more funds to be allocated to the cause to better find opioid addition, which has increased at alarming levels throughout the nation.

 

Instead, Trump has declared the opioid epidemic a “public health emergency.” While the two sound similar, they are actually quite different. The main difference between the two is that a national emergency requires immediate funding to combat the emergency. Not to worry, though, because The Donald has a plan to fight opioid addiction. It starts with the youth of the nation.

New Poll Says Utah Supports Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

SALT LAKE CITY – The Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah conducted a poll and found that 75 percent of those surveyed are supporters of some type of pot legalization. The poll also showed that 93 percent of Democrats are in favor of legalization with a surprising 65 percent of Republicans also for legalization.

Advocates from the Utah Patients Coalition have introduced a ballot initiative for 2018 that would permit medical marijuana for patients suffering from illnesses including autism, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, multiple sclerosis and cancer. At least 10 hearings for the public were held last summer by the coalition to bring awareness to the community.

Members from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints support legalizing medical marijuana by 63 percent according to utahpolicy.com. The high percentage of Mormons that support medical marijuana came as a surprise because the church has said that they are against the proposal.

Vermont’s Former Attorney General Has A 420 License Plate

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

Just ask Vermont’s former Attorney General,  William Sorrell, who received a parting gift not typically bestowed upon a state’s top law enforcement officer. But Sorrell isn’t your typical Attorney General. He’s one of the earliest supporters of marijuana decriminalization in the state of Vermont, and now has the license plate to prove it. That’s right, Vermont’s former Attorney General has a 420 license plate.

A Fitting Gift

Sorrell’s glistening green license plate was gifted to him courtesy of the man that hired him—former Vermont Governor Howard Dean. Appointed back in 1997, Sorrell became the longest-serving Attorney General in the state’s illustrious 226-year history after he retired earlier this year.

Dean left his post in 2003 but didn’t want to leave Sorrell hanging. The 70-year-old Sorrell recalled that before Dean retired, one of his aides reached out to Sorrell, and mentioned how the Governor wanted to give Sorrell and his three sisters vanity license plates, a gift typically bestowed upon friends of the Governor.
