DEA Chief Admits Pot Has 'Great Promise' As Medicine

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

In a slight break from his predecessors, DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg said voters should have an intellectually honest debate about legalizing marijuana.

“I don't recommend it, but there is other stuff in our society that is dangerous that is perfectly legal,” he said at a press briefing reported by the Washington Post.

Since taking over as DEA Chief this past May, Rosenberg told the Washington Post that he has given a great deal of thought to marijuana legalization.

He said people should not conflate the issue of legalizing recreational marijuana with medical marijuana.

The public debate, according to Rosenberg, mixes the two different issues, which he sees as distinctly different.

Maryland Prosecutor Claims Marijuana Decriminalization Increases Murder Rates

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

While a number of places all over the world have vouched for the effectiveness of marijuana decriminalization, a top Maryland prosecutor bringing the heat in Prince George’s County, located just outside the District of Columbia, believes that stripping the criminal penalties away from pot possession has contributed to a recent spike in murders throughout the county.

During a recent interview on WAMU’s The Kojo Nnamdi Show, Maryland State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks suggested that an increase in murders in Prince George’s County is likely due to the state’s decision last year to decriminalize marijuana. Her rationality for this argument is that ever since decriminalization took effect, area gangs have been engaged in a vicious turf war to gain control over the black market drug trade. She insists that with police now unable to conduct random searches for marijuana, more guns are now being carried, which is leading to more street disputes being settled with deadly force. 

"The decriminalization of marijuana has really driven the violence we have seen this year in Prince George's.” Alsobrooks said. "What we're seeing is they're fighting for turf. The marijuana dealers are fighting."

Mexico’s Supreme Court Declares Individuals Have the Right To Consume And Cultivate Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, November, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

mexico marijuanaToday, in a 4 to 1 vote, Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that the prohibition of the consumption and cultivation of marijuana for personal use is unconstitutional. The Court determined that the prohibition of the consumption of marijuana – and its cultivation for non-commercial ends – violates the human right to the free development of one’s personality. This landmark case could lead to the legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes if followed up with legislation.

“This vote by Mexico’s Supreme Court is extraordinary for two reasons: it is being argued on human rights grounds and it is taking place in one of the countries that has suffered the most from the war on drugs,” said Hannah Hetzer, Senior Policy Manager of the Americas at the Drug Policy Alliance. “Uruguay became the first country to legalize marijuana, Canada is expected soon to follow suit, medical marijuana initiatives are spreading throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and marijuana is legal in a number of U.S. states. Now with this landmark decision out of Mexico, it is clear that the Americas are leading the world in marijuana reform.”

The public debate on marijuana has surged in Mexico in recent months since the case of an 8-year old girl with epilepsy who became Mexico’s first medical marijuana patient made national and international headlines. The government granted the right to import and administer a cannabis-based treatment for the young patient.
