Massachusetts: Lawmakers to Restart Talks on Compromise Marijuana Bill

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — Lawmakers are restarting negotiations over legislation that would overhaul the state’s voter-approved marijuana law.

A House-Senate conference committee has scheduled a closed-door meeting for Monday afternoon, according to the office of Democratic Sen. Patricia Jehlen (JAY’-len). The Somerville Democrat is the lead Senate negotiator on the six-member panel.

The meeting will be the first since House Speaker Robert DeLeo suspended talks earlier this month, saying he wanted the Legislature to focus on passing an overdue budget for the fiscal year starting July 1.

Lawmakers sent a $40.2 billion spending plan to Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s desk on Friday.

In Illinois, Marijuana Laws Struggle to Keep Up With Times

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

In the fall of 2015, a woman named “Sage” — an alias she requested to protect her privacy — and another person were driving down Interstate 80. The duo was travelling east from Oregon: one of the eight states in the U.S. where recreational marijuana is legal. Autumn in the northwest U.S. is harvest season for cannabis. Sage, a licensed distributor of medical marijuana in her home state of Oregon, sat in the passenger seat. An overhead bin was attached to the vehicle.

While passing through Grundy County, Illinois, they were stopped by state police. The officer approached the vehicle, telling Sage and the unnamed driver they were pulled over for following a semi-truck in front of them too closely. While making the stop, the officer claimed to have smelled marijuana, authorizing a search of the car.

Oregon Is Not Decriminalizing All Drugs, But It Should

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Although a number of reports have surfaced this week suggesting that Oregon is about to “decriminalize” the possession of drugs such as meth, cocaine and heroin, it appears the overall message behind these journalistic offerings has been misconstrued.

What is true is that the Oregon legislature recently passed a bill that aims to reduce the penalties associated with the small time possession of illegal substances. However, nothing in the language of the proposal (House Bill 2355) would give law enforcement the freedom to simply handle drug possession cases with in a manner consistent with decriminalization.

In fact, under the bill, not much would change for people caught holding drugs—they would still be arrested and entered into the criminal justice system the same as they always have been. The only benefit is that once their case goes before a judge, they could be given a less severe punishment than in times past.
