Marijuana Decriminalization Rally In Athens, Georgia December 1st

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

athens georgia marijuana decriminalization rallyFor the past year students and citizens of University of Georgia and Athens-Clarke County have been attending commission meetings in a effort to enact some form of marijuana decriminalization for possession of personal amounts (less than 28 grams).

Thanks to the work of our affiliate (Athens C.A.R.E. Project) support is building with the commission. The mayor has expressed interest in this issue but seems reluctant to move forward. The city attorney claims a decriminalization ordinance is not feasible. We contend it is allowable and seek to enact such legislation.

With your help we can accomplish our goals.

On December 1, 2015 we will continue our push for reform but hosting a rally outside Athens city hall and speaking before the commission.

James Bell, Director of Georgia C.A.R.E. Project will be presenting a draft ordinance to allow for a written citation for possession of of 28 grams or less. The goal is to reduce the harm cause by prohibition. A local ordinance will take the case out of state court and eliminate a criminal arrest/record, booking, bond and photographs.

The Rally: A public rally will take place on December 1st – 5:00 pm to 7:00pm on the side walk at city hall. Everyone is invited to bring signs and express your support for this effort. It is important we have a good turn out.

Congressman Earl Blumenauer Calls for DEA Chief Rosenberg to Be Fired

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, November, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Acting DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg brought some heat down on himself earlier this month when he called the concept of medical marijuana “a joke.” Since then, several prominent activists have been pressuring the Obama Administration to dismiss Rosenberg from his post. It even prompted the national advocacy group the Marijuana Majority to launch a petition against the nation’s leading drug enforcer that has so far garnered over 93,000 signatures. 

However, the heat generated by Rosenberg’s loose lips has now become a raging inferno, prompting federal lawmakers to take a stand against his ignorance this week on Capitol Hill. On Wednesday,Congressman Earl Blumenauer took to the House floor to call upon Uncle Sam to provide the nation with a new DEA head that falls more in line with the opinions of the American majority. 

Calling Rosenberg a “joke” and “an example of an inept, misinformed zealot,” Blumenauer argued that the attitudes over well over half the United States population does not stand behind the failed drug war policies that the leader of the DEA insists on propagating across the land.

D.C. smells like marijuana, and residents don’t really care

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, November, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

The smell near the Columbia Heights Metro station Wednesday night was unmistakable. A lit joint in hand, Tony Lee stood outside a residence talking with friends as the evening bustle passed them by, no one paying the group of men any special attention.

“The community I’m in, everyone engages in smoking,” said Lee, 34, a District resident who runs his own small construction firm. Plus, he said, if he’s not smoking, he detects the odor of other people getting high throughout the city on a daily basis anyway.

“I’ve grown accustomed to it,” he said.

This casual attitude to marijuana — and the distinctive waft that accompanies the smoking of it — seems to be the new norm in the District in the year since the city voted to legalize possession of small amounts of pot.
