Marijuana’s biggest adversary on Capitol Hill is sponsoring a bill to research … marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) is Congress's most vocal opponent of legal marijuana, having single-handedly spearheaded a provision blocking legal pot shops in the District of Columbia in 2014. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), on the other hand, was recently named Congress's "top legal pot advocate" by Rolling Stone.

The two lawmakers couldn't be farther apart on marijuana policy, but they're teaming up this week to introduce a significant overhaul of federal marijuana policy that would make it much easier for scientists to conduct research into the medical uses of marijuana.

Supreme Court Opens Door For More Lawless Police Searches

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

In a pair of decisions released Monday, the US Supreme Court again demonstrated its deference to law enforcement priorities, in one case by expanding an exception to the long-standing ruling requiring that unlawfully gathered evidence be discarded and in another by holding that drug dealers, even those engaged only in street-corner sales, are engaged in interstate commerce.

The two decisions expand the ability of local police to skirt the law without effective punishment on the one hand, and allow prosecutors to use the weight of the federal criminal justice system to come down on small-time criminals whose cases would normally be the purview of local authorities on the other. Taken together, the decisions show a high court that once again give great deference to the demands of law enforcement.

In the first case, Utah v. Strieff, the Supreme Court held that evidence obtained from the illegal stop of Strieff should not be thrown out under the exclusionary rule, which requires that illegally seized be suppressed as “fruit of the poisonous tree.” The exclusionary rule, which dates back to 1920 and values the rule of law even at the expense of seeing a guilty suspect go free, has long been a bane of judicial conservatives, who have been trying to chip away at it since at least the 1980s.

Colorado:New Ballot Measure Could Severely Cripple Cannabis Industry

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

While Colorado’s experimental blueprint for marijuana legalization in the United States has proven wildly successful – generating more tax revenue from weed in 2015 than from alcohol — there has been no shortage in the resistance of opposing forces who are on a desperate mission toincrementally cripple the industry to the point of non-existence. 

The latest event that stands to sever the legs of the Colorado cannabis market is a ballot measure (Amendment 139) recently given the green light by the Colorado Supreme Court aimed at imposing an extensive list of restrictions on recreational marijuana – complete with a potency cap on all pot products and a cornucopia of FDA-esque labeling rules for which there is no medical basis.
