Illinois House Vote On Marijuana Decriminalization Measure Imminent

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Illinois medical marijuana hb 1I received the following alert out of Illinois. There’s still time to contact your Representative to let them know that you support decriminalization:

The Illinois House of Representatives is expected to vote on decriminalization as early as tomorrow, and this may be your last chance to help ensure the bill will pass. While the measure was supported by a large majority in the Senate, support is weaker in the House, and we need your help!

Please take a moment to ask your representative to vote in support of SB 2228.

This bill would remove the possibility of arrest and jail for the possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana and would lower the fine to between $100 and $200. It would also remove the possibility of a harmful criminal record for possession, which can last a lifetime. Finally, the bill significantly improves to the state’s current DUI law.

Advocates in Illinois have done an incredible job under difficult circumstances in working toward incremental improvement. Now is the time for one final push! SB 2228, sponsored by Rep. Kelly Cassidy in the House, is part of a multi-year effort to help move away from the harsh penalties currently in place, and help bring more consistency to possession laws in Illinois.

Colorado Governor Now Thinks That Marijuana Legalization Is Working, No Longer ‘Reckless’

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

john hickenlooper marijuana coloradoOne of the leading opponents to marijuana legalization during the 2012 campaign in Colorado was Colorado’s own Governor John Hickenlooper. Even after the election, Hickenlooper opposed marijuana legalization, referring to it as being ‘reckless.’ I think that Governor Hickenlooper wanted very much to despise marijuana legalization, but even he has to admit that things are going much better than he expected in Colorado, which he did recently while speaking on a panel at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles. Per the Los Angeles Times:

“If I had that magic wand now, I don’t know if I would wave it,” he said. “It’s beginning to look like it might work.”

It was the latest in a series of comments Hickenlooper has made signaling what looks like an evolution of his views on marijuana. In April last year, during an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Hickenlooper said legal weed was “not as vexing as we thought it was going to be.”

And during an appearance on “60 Minutes,” he predicted that Colorado might “actually create a system that could work” in successfully regulating marijuana.

Report: Southern California Cops Steal from 1 out of 10 People Without Conviction

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Although California is often revered as one of the more progressive states when it comes to protecting the average citizen from becoming a casualty of the drug war, a new poll has found that law enforcement is the southern portion of the state is still capitalizing on the seizure of cash and property belonging to residents who have not been convicted of a crime.

A couple of surveys recently published by Public Policy Polling found that one out of every 10 adults living in the counties of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino have been shaken down by the cops to the tune of cash and personal property without being convicted of any wrongdoing. The report points out that law enforcement in these areas has apparently made it their mission to profit from running seizure scams on the communities they have been hired to protect, with one in five respondents admitting to being close to someone victimized by this vile injustice.
