HB 2107 Advances Through Texas House of Representatives

We have been monitoring various State Congresses across the U.S. and what cannabis policy-related bills they have circulating through them this legislative session.  One of the biggest surprises for me personally is legislative action and support we are seeing in the state of Texas.  We are thrilled to share the news we got today about HB 2107 from the Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy when they posted this:

Medical cannabis has unprecedented support in the Texas House. Now what?
Last Tuesday night, the Public Health committee considered public testimony in support of HB 2107 until nearly 2 a.m. Patients, including military veterans, caregivers, and medical professionals shared their stories and experiences with an attentive and thoughtful committee. The next day, the legislation gained significant traction, jumping from five to over 70 representatives signing on as either joint or co-authors. (Currently 77 co-authors.)

Are Harsh Mandatory Minimum Sentences Making a Comeback?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Department officials have been weighing new guidance that would encourage prosecutors to charge suspects with the most serious offenses they can prove, a reversal of Obama-era policies that aimed to reduce the federal prison population and show more leniency to lower-level drug offenders.

If embraced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, this could result in an increased use of rigid mandatory minimum sentences that critics have called unnecessarily harsh.

The guidance is taking shape in the form of a memo that ultimately will be shared with the nation’s federal prosecutors, but the timeframe for release is unclear. Drafts of the memo have been circulating for weeks and have undergone revisions, so the final language is not yet certain.

A person involved in the discussions described one version to The Associated Press speaking only on condition of anonymity because the guidance has not been publicly announced. As outlined, that version would encourage prosecutors to charge people with the most serious, provable offenses – something more likely to trigger mandatory minimum sentences. Those rules limit a judge’s discretion and are typically dictated, for example, by the quantity of drugs involved in a crime.

Did Congress Leave These 2 States Open to a Medical Marijuana Crackdown?

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

Legally speaking, nowhere in America is medical marijuana more at risk of falling victim to a Donald Trump-led federal crackdown than in Indiana and North Dakota.

Not that there’s much in the way of medical cannabis in either state at the moment—or any legal marijuana all, really. The two red states are very recent converts: North Dakota has just begun to try to figure out how to deliver medical marijuana to the voters who approved it at the ballot on Election Day—with the first legal crop available to no more than a few thousand patients, and that is in a year’s time or more.

And in Indiana, home state of Vice President Mike Pence—where the mere sight of legally purchased marijuana edibles sets off a regional panic and where the ACLU has to become involved just so local marijuana activists can have a rallyIndiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has just signed into law a bill allowing CBD products only (which is to say that Texas is further along on medical weed than Indiana).
