church drug war christian marijuanaA group of Pennsylvania religious leaders will announce their support for medical marijuana legislation Wednesday at a news conference at 11 a.m. ET on the Lt. Governor’s Balcony in the Pennsylvania State Capitol. They will then visit with lawmakers to convey their support in person.

A diverse group of more than 50 clergy members in Pennsylvania have signed a statement urging state lawmakers to adopt a comprehensive medical marijuana law this year. A list of signers will be posted Wednesday at http://www.ClergyForCompassion.com.

“We cannot remain silent while people in pain and anguish are deprived of a viable, safe, and responsible remedy,” the statement reads. “While we may practice different faiths and come from different communities, we share the same commitment to improving the broader community through the practice of humanity, healing, mercy, and compassion. That is why, as leaders within our respective communities of faith, we are joining together to encourage the Pennsylvania General Assembly to adopt sensible, comprehensive medical cannabis legislation.”

Speakers at the news conference will include Pastor Shawn Berkebile of Abbotstown, Rev. Theodore Cockley of Williamsport, Rabbi George Stern of Philadelphia, and Pastor Bonnie Whittier of Codorus. They will be joined by Rev. Alexander Sharp of Clergy for a New Drug Policy, which is rallying clergy nationwide in support of sensible medical marijuana legislation.

Mexico Supreme Court To Consider Legalizing Recreational Marijuana Later This Month

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, October, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

mexico flag marijuanaYou would be hard pressed to find a country that needs marijuana reform as much as Mexico does. Mexico has been overrun by drug cartels for many decades now, causing an enormous amount of misery. People are getting kidnapped, tortured, and murdered at an alarming rate with no end in sight. Cartels don’t make as much money as they used to from the marijuana industry, but they still profit from it, and use those profits to carry out horrific acts in an attempt to keep making money.

Later this month Mexico’s Supreme Court will consider reforming Mexico’s marijuana laws. Per The Joint Blog:

On October 28, the Mexico Supreme Court is set to discuss a proposal that would effectively legalize the possession, use and production of cannabis for recreational purposes.

According to Reuters, judges will vote on whether to declare unconstitutional parts of a federal health law prohibiting the growth and consumption of cannabis after a nonprofit group filed an injunction against a 2013 decision by health regulatorCofepris. According to documents on the supreme court’s website, the hearing date is set for October 28.

A favorable decision would not only be huge for Mexico, it would also be huge for other countries that have to deal with the fallout from cartels based in Mexico. Arizona, Nevada, and California are hopefully going to vote to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016, which if combined with legal marijuana in Mexico, would hurt cartels a lot. I will be anxiously awaiting any decision from Mexico’s Supreme Court, and will definitely post something as soon as I hear anything.

Federal Court: US Government Is Breaking the Law By Interfering in Medical Marijuana

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, October, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

While the DEA has made no apologies for its liberal interpretation of a 2014 congressional amendment that was supposed to prevent the federal government from going on full blown seek-and-destroy missions in medical marijuana states, a federal judge in San Francisco has issued a landmark ruling that could serve to neuter these vile schemes from this point forward. 

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer slapped down the DEA with a verdict damning the agency for continuing to bust down the doors of the medical marijuana community—even when an amendment attached to last year’s government budget prevents such actions. The decision, which is reportedly the first ever by a federal judge to stand up for state marijuana laws, argues that the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment clearly prevents the Justice Department from spending money to crack skulls in states that have established medical marijuana programs.

This federal ruling surrounds a case involving Lynette Shaw, founder of Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Fairfax, who was forced the shut down her dispensary in 2011 after the Justice Department nailed her to the wall with a federal injunction. Fortunately, Judge Breyer’s decision not only allows Shaw to re-open the dispensary, but it could also allow other marijuana-related operations that have been subject to similar bans to come up for some air.
