Arkansas rejects marijuana legalisation due to 'spelling and grammar errors' in proposal

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

Plans to legalise marijuana in Arkansas have been scuppered - by spelling errors and “ambiguities in text”.

Arkansas Attorney General, Leslie Rutledge, said “errors of grammar, punctuation and spelling” were the reason behind her rejection of the constitutional amendment, the Associated Pressreports.

The proposal, written by Marry Berry, a resident of Summit, Arkansas, called for all residents to cultivate, produce, possess and use cannabis and anything produced from the plant.

Phrases queried in the proposal by Ms Rutledge included: "Any person eighteen (18) years of age and older", to which she said the “and” should have been “or”, Russia Today reports.

Mexico’s Supreme Court To Decide On Right To Consume And Grow Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, October, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

led cannabis grow lightsOn Wednesday, Mexico’s Supreme Court will debate whether the prohibition of the consumption and cultivation of marijuana for personal use is unconstitutional. The Court will determine whether 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 debate in Mexico’s Supreme Court is extraordinary for two reasons: because it is being argued on human rights grounds, and because 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.

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.

“It is unprecedented for the Supreme Court to introduce a human rights dimension to the debate on drug policy,” said Lisa Sanchez, Latin American Programme Manager for Transform Drug Policy Foundation and México Unido Contra la Delincuencia. “If the Court recognizes that the prohibition of marijuana consumption and cultivation for non-commercial purposes limits the right to the free development of one’s personality, it may determine that various articles in the General Health Act are unnecessarily punitive. This could would give citizens the possibility to cultivate marijuana for personal use without having to turn to the underground market.”

Marijuana reform has gained unprecedented momentum throughout the Americas. In the United States, Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington D.C. have legalized marijuana for adults. In December 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to legally regulate marijuana. In Canada, the new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal Party have promised to legalize marijuana. There are currently medical marijuana legalization bills being debated in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico.

Maine Initiatives Join Forces to Bring Down Prohibition, Other States Should Take Note

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

Two marijuana advocacy groups working to make Maine one of the next states to legalize a recreational cannabis industry have decided—rather than continue to fight over semantics—to form a wicked alliance in an effort to get one solid initiative on the ballot in the 2016 election.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, which is backed by the Marijuana Policy Project, threw its hands in the air on Monday and joined forces with a competing ballot initiative overseen by Legalize Maine. Together, this inbred monster of activism will combine their resources in hopes of collecting the remaining 61,000 signatures needed to put the issue of legal weed up to the voters next year.

“Joining forces is the best step forward, not only for our respective campaigns, but for Maine as a whole,” said David Boyer, campaign manager for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, in a statement. “We all agree marijuana prohibition has been a colossal failure and that it must be replaced with a system in which marijuana is legal for adults and regulated like alcohol. We can more effectively accomplish our shared goal by combining our resources and working together instead of on parallel tracks.”
