Texas Coalition To Inject Marijuana Debate Into State Legislative Races

texas marijuana legislatureTexans for Responsible Marijuana Policy to Mobilize Activists Statewide in Effort to Inject Marijuana Policy Debate Into 2016 State Legislative Races; New Texas Lyceum Poll Finds Three Out of Four Voters Support Reform

Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy will hold an advocacy training event Saturday in San Antonio that will mark the beginning of a statewide effort to inject the marijuana policy debate into 2016 state legislative races. Regional events are also scheduled for Dallas on October 31, Corpus Christi on November 7, East Texas on December 5, and Houston on December 12.

“Comprehensive marijuana reform saw tremendous progress this legislative session largely because families and regular Texans shared their stories with lawmakers,” said State Sen. José Menéndez (D-San Antonio). “The movement to change our antiquated and dangerous prohibition laws are gaining traction. However, that momentum will be lost unless citizens stay engaged with their lawmakers during the interim and campaign season.

“That’s why these advocacy training events are so important because citizens will be the catalyst for change,” Sen. Menéndez said. “I’m excited the inaugural training session is taking place in San Antonio. Poll after poll shows Texans are ready for comprehensive marijuana reform.”

The guest speaker at the Saturday event in San Antonio is Michael Gilbert, Ph.D., a University of Texas San Antonio professor of criminal justice who previously served as a corrections officer. He will join representatives of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy for a media availability at 12 p.m. CT, and members of the media are invited to listen to his presentation at 1 p.m. CT.

Lawsuit Filed Against Authorities for Illegal Closure of Dispensaries and Harassment of Patients in Michigan

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

A lawyer in Warren, Michigan’s third largest city, filed a lawsuit on Monday against the city on behalf of 23 state-approved medical marijuana users who say they are being harassed and ticketed by the Warren police, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The lawsuit also claims that zoning officials in Warren—as well as the police commissioner and mayor—have all cooperated in a policy to shut down the Michigan Safe Transfer Center through a police raid and confiscation of the owners’ property without a search warrant.

Last month, the police illegally stopped each car leaving the Transfer Center and questioned drivers in what constituted an illegal roadblock and illegal searches. Then the police proceeded to raid the center. 

Michael Greiner, the attorney filing the lawsuit and part owner of the center, said that the Transfer Center legally permits caregivers to provide medical cannabis to people who are officially registered with the state of Michigan.

Pa. lawmakers move closer to legalizing medical marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, October, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

Pennsylvania legislators moved one step closer to legalizing medical marijuana this week after a group of state House members unveiled recommendations to shape a bill that could be voted into law before the end of the year.

The recommendations, prepared by 13 House members who had been discussing the issue since July, touched on subjects including how to license growers and sellers, and which medical conditions would qualify for a marijuana prescription.

Steve Miskin, spokesman for House Republicans, said the next step would be using the guidelines to draft a bill that can garner enough support in the House.

"Hopefully, [it] passes by the end of the year," Miskin said.


The state Senate has already approved its own medical-marijuana bill, and State Sen. Daylin Leach (D., Montgomery), a longtime proponent of medical marijuana, said he believed the upper chamber would support a House bill that reflected the recommendations that were made public this week by State Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R., Centre).
