Bernie Sanders signals support for marijuana legalization

Category: Politics | Posted on Tue, October, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

Asked by CNN's Juan Carlos Lopez whether he'd support Nevada's 2016 ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana in that state, Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders answered "I suspect I would vote yes" to applause from the crowd.

Sanders' answer is significant because it marks the first time a 2016 candidate has openly declared support for legalizing recreational -- and not just medical -- marijuana. Asked earlier this year on Reddit about his views on marijuana,Sanders replied that he supported marijuana decriminalization as well as medical marijuana. He also hinted that he'd have more to say in coming months on the subject.

His response at tonight's debate may hint at what his future policy proposals may entail. The full question and response is below:

LOPEZ: Senator Sanders, right here in Nevada, there will be a measure to legalize recreational marijuana on the 2016 ballot. You've said you smoked marijuana twice; it didn't quite work for you. If you were a Nevada resident, how would you vote?

SANDERS: I suspect I would vote yes.

Ohio Voters Will Vote On Marijuana Legalization In Three Weeks

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

ohio marijuana medical marijuana legalizationThree weeks from today Ohio voters will caste their ballots and decide if ResponsibleOhio’s marijuana legalization initiative will become law or not. Ohio Issue 3 would legalize the possession of marijuana, personal cultivation of marijuana, and for some, the ability to cultivate marijuana for profit. The initiative has caused a lot of controversy because of that last provision. Many people oppose a provision of the initiative that grants just ten cultivation-for-profit locations.

Many people see this as there only being ten entities that can grow marijuana in Ohio for profit if the initiative passes, which isn’t entirely true. Yes, the licensees could decide to not allow anyone else to grow at their locations, keeping all of the profits for themselves. However, they also can lease out cultivation space to other people who can then grow for profit. So is it an oligarchy? It could be, but not necessarily.

The ResponsibleOhio initiative has been hard for some activists and organizations to swallow, with some people endorsing the initiative, some staying neutral, and some adamantly opposing it in public every chance they get. Hardworking activist Russ Belville is about the only longtime activist that I’ve seen lend his full support to the initiative, with others that endorsed it taking more of a ‘plug your nose and vote yes’ approach. Russ has fought very hard to educate people about what ResponsibleOhio’s initiative does and doesn’t do. He has put up with a virtually never ending supply of personal attacks, yet has remained quite polite about it, and hasn’t let those attacks steer him from educating the masses. Regardless of how you feel about ResponsibleOhio, we should still all agree that Russ’ work is commendable.

Mexico: Massive Grow Busted in Bloody Border Zone

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

Earlier this month, Mexican federal police agents announced the discovery of some 860,000 cannabis plants—weighing an estimated 1,000 metric tons—at Ejido La Sangre, an agricultural community in the Tubutama municipality, about 10 miles south of the Arizona border.

The plants were burned in the 14-hectare irrigated field, police said, and no arrests were reported.

According to EFE, fertilizer, pesticides and farm equipment were confiscated. Authorities of the Ejido are said to be under investigation.

In June 2010, Tubutama was the scene of a gangland shoot-out that left 29 dead after a Sinaloa Cartel convoy was reportedly ambushed by gunmen.

In a wave of violence following this, many of Tubutama’s outlying communities were reported to have become “ghost towns” as the populace fled. Mexico's notorious Blog del Narco posted grisly images of the Tubutama massacre last year.
