Mexico Supreme Court To Consider Legalizing Recreational Marijuana Later This Month

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, October, 20th 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 Tue, October, 20th 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.

Judge: Feds Cannot Block Dispensaries Operating Within State Law

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

In a landmark decision that carries potential ramifications nationwide, a federal judge ruled Monday that the federal government does not have the authority to block the operations of medical marijuana clubs operating within state law. The decision marks a victory for Lynette Shaw, a medical cannabis pioneer who opened the nation’s first state-sanctioned dispensary in 1996. The dispensary, the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, was in operation in Fairfax, California until it was shut down by the feds in 2011. Today’s decision comes in light of a 2014 amendment proposed by representatives Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Sam Farr (D-CA), which prohibited the Department of Justice prosecuting those operating within compliance with the state’s rules for medical marijuana. The recent ruling represents a broad interpretation of theRohrabacher-Farr Amendment, a piece of legislation designed to ensure that the federal government does not expend resources prosecuting medical marijuana dispensaries operating within the parameters of their state.

The ruling, which lifts the injunction against the medical marijuana club, has been called a “tipping point” by Shaw’s attorney Greg Anton and comes from the same judge who granted the permanent injunction against Shaw in 2002.
