Respect States Marijuana Laws Act of 2017 Introduced by Republican Congressman

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabis advocate, Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), introduced the Respect States Marijuana Laws Act of 2017 this week. The bill is aimed at protecting individuals in the cannabis industry against threats of federal prosecution.

The bill, HR975 was introduced by the longtime Congressional ally to the cannabis industry, and Trump supporter Rep. Rohrabacher. A coalition of six Democrats and seven Republicans are co-sponsoring the measure.

The Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2017 bill would basically place state law above federal when it comes to the Controlled Substances Act – as long as the individuals follow their state’s laws regarding the federally illegal plant.

It’s not the first time a bill like this was filed. HR1940 was introduced to last year’s Congress, but didn’t get any traction.

Cannabis Farm Discovered inside Cottage at Legoland

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

The British police arrested two men after 50 weed plants were discovered growing in a hut at Windsor’s Legoland, which bills itself as “The UK’s Favourite Kids Theme Park.”

Windsor is based in the County of Berkshire, located on the Thames River about 20 miles west of London.

Workers doing a routine asbestos check at the site, just three miles away from Windsor Castle, came upon the pot farm, which was nicely equipped with lights and a watering system.

The property is outside the walls of Legoland but within the 215-acre estate.

Theme park bosses said the vacant building, which is close to where visitors leave their pets, is inaccessible to the public and “appears to have been accessed via the Crown Estate,” which is land belonging to Queen Elizabeth. Good heavens.

Reasons Why The Government Couldn’t Legalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, February, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

capitol-1741315_1280.jpgThe news of marijuana set to be legalized in all 50 states with a prescription was spread last August which has reached many uninformed readers. However, the information turned out to lack credibility and was proven false, leaving marijuana still under the list of illegal drugs.


Reclassifying marijuana

Governors of Washington and Rhode Island respectively, Christine Gregoire and Lincoln Chafee has earlier filed a petition to have the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration reclassify marijuana from being a Schedule I drug to either a Schedule II or III. Drugs that are classified as Schedule I are those that show no medicinal benefit, such as heroin and LSD. Meanwhile, classified under Schedule II are those that can be accessed with prescription; examples of this are Adderall and Ritalin. Even then, there are still companies out there require workers for a yearly drug test.


Coming to the decision

Since the news of marijuana being legalized across the U.S. still remains to be false, this might bring people to ask: Just why couldn’t the government legalize marijuana? It turned out that the DEA’s decision came from a comprehensive evaluation by the Health and Human Services Department. According to their review, marijuana remains to have a “high potential for abuse”. It further backs the decision with the finding that it has “no accepted medical use”.

With this, marijuana will remain illegal under federal law, regardless of purpose and despite the laws in 25 states, including District of Columbia, that have legalized its medical or recreational use.


Betting on science

Although pot remains illegal, the hope of marijuana advocates is still tethered to further scientific understanding of the drug. DEA acting administrator Chuck Rosenberg believes that the decision could change if there is also a change in marijuana findings. After all, Rosenberg adds that the decision of classifying marijuana as a Schedule I drug does not necessarily suggest that it is as dangerous as other illicit drugs. Rather than considering it as a “danger” scale, the scheduling of substances should be based on their scientific and medical evidence.


Paving way to further research

Good news for scientists, though, is that the DEA has announced plans to make further research on marijuana a lot easier. In order for researchers to continue uncovering more of marijuana’s possible medical benefits, the agency plans to expand the number of groups that can legally grow it for the sake of research. Presently, only the University of Mississippi researchers are permitted to plant marijuana for the benefit of their studies.


The future of marijuana in America

There is a difference between the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana. Legalization will revert marijuana back to being a taxable good just as it had until the 1930s. One of the many groups that are not in favor of legalizing marijuana is pot growers themselves, as they would lose profit in the long run. Meanwhile, decriminalization, which makes the possession of small amounts of marijuana legal, is a more practiced model in various municipalities.

While this is so, the law can still prosecute dealers and those who exceed the legal possession amount. In the long run, decriminalization of marijuana rids the justice system of low-level defendants, focusing on the more serious crimes. If this becomes a problem though, then users can still rely on test kits and other detoxifying agents that can help them through it.
