Ireland Is Ready To Legalize Cannabis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, October, 26th 2013 by THCFinder

It looks like marijuana legalization efforts are ramping up in Ireland. Roscommon TD Luke Ming Flanagan recently published his ‘Cannabis Regulation Bill 2013.’ According to a media outlet in Ireland, legalization would generate somewhere around 300 million Euro. Admittedly, I’m not as familiar with Ireland public policy and economics as I am with American policy and economics, but 300 million Euro sounds like more than enough reason to end cannabis prohibition.
 
According to the Irish Times, the bill would (full bill can be found at the previous link):
 
- regulate cannabis for recreational and medical use
 
- allow for home cultivation up to a maximum of six cannabis plant
 
- allow for the personal possession of up to one ounce of cannabis
 
- allow for the setting up of “Cannabis Social Clubs” which would allow up to 50 club members to cultivate up to 300 plants for not-for-profit use
 
- set up a “cannabis regulation authority” to regulate the cultivation, sale, labelling, advertising and marketing of cannabis
 
- see tax revenue from cannabis fund drug addiction services, medical research and juvenile education courses on drugs.
 
- include a requirement that the Minister for Justice and Minister for Agriculture to examine the feasibility of the safe regulation and controlled use of cannabis.

New Zealand Saying War On Drugs Has Failed

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
the-war-on-drugs-in-nzThe War On Drugs has been going on for far too long at this point at the expense of the taxpayers. From tearing families apart to hurting innocent bystanders, the war has been sucking economies dry all over the world. When the efforts that go in to a raid are thought of, how is it even justifiable? Government agencies spend millions of dollars to raid one grow operation, where the marijuana that is confiscated doesn't even hold the same amount of street value. Is shutting down marijuana grows really worth losing money? New Zealand doesn't seem to think so.
 
The Global Commission on Drug Policy have found that the War On Drugs has accomplished... Well.. Nothing. They stated that the war failed to achieve any of the objectives that it was supposed to. In New Zealand, the use of drugs is on the rise, while taxpayers shell out $400 million every year to enforce a prohibition that clearly isn't working. Since marijuana actually isn't a drain on the economy (the war on drugs is the real drain), the government in NZ is rethinking it's stand.
 
Julian Crawford, the leader of the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party, says that "a far more effective way to undermine the black market would be to regulate and tax the cannabis trade". Finally! Leaders are starting to realize the more positive ways of using cannabis to their countries benefits, rather than using methods that hurt the citizens and government alike. Crawford goes on to say that there are innocent cannabis users that are being prosecuted and having their medicine stolen by the government. While cops are around to "protect and serve", they're definitely not protecting sick citizens.
 
New Zealand will hold a Party Vote for the ALCP, to reassure the fact that the war on drugs has failed it's mission. While a vote may just be a formality, it is an awesome thought that leaders are beginning to take note of how negatively the cannabis prohibition effects the citizens. The government needs to think of the needs of the people. Greed and corruption are unfortunately the blinders that come with every politician. But once a few leaders realize, others will follow. The truth can't be denied for long!
