California Medical Association Endorses Marijuana Legalization Initiative

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

california medical association mariuanaToday, the California Medical Association (CMA) – representing more than 41,000 physician members statewide — announced its formal endorsement of the ballot measure known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

Consistent with the organization’s historic White Paper of 2011 (https://www.cmanet.org/news/detail?article=cma-urges-legalization-and-regulation-of) urging legalization and regulation of cannabis to allow for greater clinical research, oversight, accountability and quality control, CMA has endorsed the Adult Use of Marijuana Act so:

  • First, the impacts of marijuana in California can be monitored, researched, tightly regulated and, where necessary, mitigated to protect the public health &
  • Second, improper diversion by non-symptomatic patients into California’s medical marijuana system can be reduced.

In addition, CMA does not as a matter of policy encourage the use of marijuana and discourages smoking.  But, ultimately, its members believe that the most effective way to protect the public health is to tightly control, track and regulate marijuana and to comprehensively research and educate the public on its health impacts, not through ineffective prohibition.

Native American Church Schism Sues for Right to Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

A seemingly schismatic Oregon branch of the Native American Church claims the US government illegally seized its sacramental cannabis—and is fighting in court to get it back. Oklevueha Native American Church leaders James "Flaming Eagle" Mooney and Joy Graves brought the case Jan. 15 in a US district court in Portland. Graves says she mailed five ounces of cannabis to a church member in Ohio on Dec. 10, but it never arrived. The Postal Service tracking website reported that the package had been seized by law enforcement.

A postal inspector in Portland told her cannabis is illegal under federal law and was unimpressed by her claim that she sent the herb to a church member with esophageal cancer for use in healing rituals, according to Courthouse News Service. Oregon legalized medical marijuana in 2007 and approved recreational cannabis through a ballot measure last year. Both remain illegal in Ohio, although small quantities are decriminalized there. Sending cannabis through the mails is a federal crime.

Mooney and Graves say Native Americans have used cannabis ritually for centuries. They want Graves' five ounces back, and an injunction prohibiting the government from seizing their herbal sacrament, claiming ceremonial use as a right under the 1978 American Indian Religious Freedom Act

Possible Recalls In Signal Hill And Medical Marijuana Ballot Measure Splits In Two

The Signal Hill Patients Access PAC Strategist, Jason Aula has released a statement regarding the amendment of the municipal ballot measure and the split to two particular ballot measures:

“The medical cannabis policy in regards to delivery and cultivation that the City Council of Signal Hill has chosen to adopt recently represents a staggering misappropriation of community resources. I can actually say the PAC law I drafted is 100 times superior when compared to the rubbish policy the city council is proposing. The PAC is committed to winning and I want to advise the media and public recalls are on the table for any member of the council that defies the empowerment of the people of Signal Hill to access medical cannabis”

“The amended measure was split into two separate ballot measures. One measure includes a fee which requires 66.6% + 1 to approve according to CA prop 26. The second measure which includes the skeleton of the law now only requires 50% +1 to qualify. We amended to squash any local control the five Signal Hill City Council members may allegedly have and empowered thousands of residents to decide the issues not corrupt self-serving politicians.”

“The City Council and City Attorney are incompetent and corrupt. Said parties cannot be trusted simply because of their approval of the ban on cultivation presently which would be illegal. Not only is the council misinformed but they are receiving incorrect and invalid legal advice that will subject the city to civil litigation in the future. It almost appears the city attorney contractor would not mind creating more work since they are contracted and get a monthly retainer plus hourly fees for additional services. The present proposed ban on cultivation violates state law and I am not going to specify exactly what is illegal because the PAC has no desire to tip the council off because the law would just be challenged in court. Signal Hill voters are generally progressive and would surely approve a recall of council members that do not represent their views. A survey is in progress to confirm the PAC’s information that says Signal Hill voters want medical cannabis in the city”
