Mexico City Mulls Legal Marijuana Clubs

The Mexico City council is considering the legalization of cannabis plants and the creation of private marijuana smoking "clubs" as it mulls controversial legislation to liberalize consumption, lawmakers said.
 
The capital hosted a three-day forum on drug policy amid a growing debate in Latin America over the course of the region's deadly struggle against narcotrafficking, with President Enrique Pena Nieto taking a stance against legalization.
 
Esthela Damian, a councilwoman of the city's ruling Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), told AFP the proposals on the table include allowing the cultivation of three cannabis plants per person, as well as a system of cooperatives or "non-profit private clubs."
 
The forum of experts and representatives from around the world, including the United Nations and Organization of American States (OAS), gave way to various opinions that could feed legislation the city council may debate in October.
 
The US states of Washington and Colorado voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana last year, a move that shocked the Mexican government as it faces cartel violence that has left more than 70,000 people dead in the past seven years.
 
Former president Vicente Fox, who was in office from 2000 to 2006, has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana as a solution to the violence.

Washington D.C. Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Discounting Meds For Poor People

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
wa-dc-to-give-discounts-to-poor-peopleA proposed law would make medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington, D.C. give 2% of their profits to a program to provide cannabis to the poor.
 
The Washington Times reports that, in addition to the profit tithe, “Under the regulatory proposal, dispensaries would give at least a 20 percent discount on marijuana to low-income people at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.” Cards issued to D.C.’s registered patients already indicate if their income level qualifies them for the discounted rate.
 
The goal is to make access to cannabis easier for those economically disadvantaged persons. Although safe access centers in other states may have individual policies regarding discounts for the poor, “This rule is totally unprecedented in the medical marijuana community,” said Alan St. Pierre, Executive Director for national NORML.
 
The District’s first dispensary, Capital City Care, charges from $380 – $440 per ounce of marijuana, according to the report. “Marijuana is overpriced because it’s overregulated, so a program for the poor is necessary,” Dan Riffle of the Marijuana Policy Project told the Times. “There’s this outdated hysteria surrounding marijuana, but it’s much safer than many other medications.”
 
The discount program is still in development and there are issues regarding reporting and collecting that have not been settled.
