Marijuana Legalization In Italy: 250 Italian Lawmakers Support Cannabis Decriminalization Proposal

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, July, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

Italy may well be on its way to becoming the largest country in Europe to legalize marijuana. An Italian tracking group has found that more than 250 lawmakers from across the political spectrum have given their support to a proposal that would largely decriminalize production, distribution, sale and consumption of marijuana throughout the nation.

The leap may appear far-fetched for a country that just 10 years ago voted in a draconian anti-drug bill that removed any distinction between hard and soft drugs, increasing sentences for pot smokers and heroin addicts alike.

But the legalization movement recently gained momentum, with one of the world's most progressive legislative proposals on marijuana being submitted to the Italian parliament. Drafted by the Intergrupo Parlamentare Cannabis Legale, the legislation would allow anyone over the age of 18 to cultivate as many as five plants at home. Italians could also team up to form a "cannabis social club," with each having a maximum of 50 people growing as many as 250 plants.

Oregon TV anchor says she was fired for marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Ore. – A former Eugene, Oregon TV news anchor said she was recently fired from her job for testing positive for marijuana.

Cyd Maurer, 25, said she was driving a work vehicle in May when she got into a fender bender on her way to a live shot.

"I was immediately forced to take a drug test, to pee in a cup, and that was that," she wrote on her website. She also told her story in a YouTube video posted July 23.

Maurer, who graduated from the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication, said her bosses at KEZI knew she was responsible and told her they wanted her to keep her job, but the decision to fire her after the positive drug test came from a corporate attorney.

Maurer said she smoked marijuana a few days before the minor traffic crash.

"I wasn't fired because I couldn't do my job. I wasn't fired because of my work ethic, my attitude, or my abilities," Maurer said. "I was fired for enjoying a plant, on my own time, in the privacy of my own home. A plant that the majority of voters in Oregon believe should be legal."

National Cannabis Industry Association Reacts To Favorable Senate Marijuana Banking Vote

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

national cannabis industry association ncia arizonaA U.S. Senate committee voted today in support of opening up banking services to state-legal marijuana businesses. By a vote of 16-14, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed an amendment to the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill, forbidding the use of federal funds to penalize financial institutions that serve marijuana businesses operating legally under state law. The amendment was offered by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR).

A similar amendment was passed by the full House of Representatives in 2014, but was ultimately stripped out during the final omnibus budget negotiations conducted by the Senate. The House has not yet debated the Financial Services Appropriations bill in 2015, but a repeat of the cannabis banking amendment is anticipated if and when that debate takes place.

“It’s encouraging to see members of the Senate stepping up and joining the House to address the banking crisis facing our industry,” said National Cannabis Industry Association executive director Aaron Smith. “Access to basic banking services is one of the most critical challenges facing legal cannabis businesses and the state agencies tasked with regulating them.”

“Bipartisan coalitions in both chambers are supporting these reforms. It’s time to make them the law of the land.”
