Legalize it!

Legalize-it

In the famous words of Peter Tosh, “legalize it, don’t criticize it, legalize it and I will advertise it.”

The marijuana industry is one that is becoming undeniably profitable and marketable. As activists and anti-prohibition legislatures have been doing their best to decriminalize our beloved cannabis plant, the war on drugs might be finally making some positive changes within the next decade, or so we hope. The many medical and industrial applications are enough to change the world. In 2006, a statement was released that marijuana is the number one cash crop above soybeans, hay and corn. The United States annual domestic cannabis revenue is $36,803,591,000.00. In addition to the amount of money cannabis rakes in every year, it is a plant that can be completely utilized, stalk, leaf, flower, and seed. The stalk is where the fibrous material of hemp is extracted and can be used for apparel, rope, canvas, paper, insulation, mulch and many other products. The leaves and flowers are where the majority of the THC is held and are generally used for consumption, recreationally and medicinally, through smoking, vaporizing, oils, and butter, just to name a few. The seed is probably one of the most diverse parts of the cannabis plant. Aside from the obvious function of procreation, the seeds can be used to produce animal feed and birdseed, soap, hair product, lotions, cosmetics, balms, varnishes, ink, fuel, solvents, lubricants, putty, cooking oils, vitamins and many other various types of helpful items.

In a statement issued in 2012, studies have shown that the United States is populated by almost 313 million people. Of that population, 10% or 32.7 million people, have been reported as using cannabis regularly. The true number is likely more than 10%. Every 36 seconds, a marijuana related arrest occurs in the United States and billions of dollars are wasted every year on these incarcerations as well as these arrests. With all of these statistics and figures being thrown at us almost daily from both sides of the war, it is not surprising that many just choose to remain apathetic and simply hope for the best. This approach has gotten us nowhere fast. If you are a cannabis user and believe in the magic of marijuana, then get up, stand up and don’t give up the fight.

Oregon Clears the Way for Easier Access to Medical Marijuana

Oregon is on track to become the 15th state to license and regulate medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
Gov. John Kitzhaber’s office confirmed Wednesday that, despite opposition, the governor is expected to sign House Bill 3460 into law.
 
Under the bill, the Oregon Health Authority would set up a registration system of medical marijuana dispensaries by 2014. The dispensaries will be authorized to deliver the drug and immature marijuana plants to patients.
 
State law currently allows patients with certain debilitating medical conditions to grow their own marijuana or designate someone else to do it, but there are no provisions to allow places for patients to legally purchase marijuana.

Ariz. court: Cops can't keep Rx marijuana patients pot

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
az-police-potPHOENIX –– Medical marijuana patients whose drugs are taken by police are entitled to get it back, the Arizona Supreme Court has ruled.
In a brief order, the justices rejected arguments by prosecutors that the drug is strictly regulated by the federal government, leaving police legally powerless to turn marijuana over to anyone else. They gave no reason for their ruling.
 
The order most immediately affects Valerie Okun, whose drugs were taken from her nearly two years ago on Interstate 8 near Yuma. While she was never prosecuted -- she has a valid medical marijuana card from California -- sheriff’s deputies refused to return the drugs.
But Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot told Capitol Media Services on Tuesday he’s still not ready to hand over the marijuana. He hopes to get the case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
 
If he succeeds, that could affect more than the immediate question of when police have to return marijuana taken from medical cardholders.
 
It presents an opportunity for the nation’s high court to look at the obvious conflict between laws in places like Arizona where at least some individuals can buy and have marijuana, and federal statutes which consider possession by anyone other than authorized researchers a felony. And that could pave the way for Supreme Court to finally rule whether states have an inherent right to enact their own marijuana laws.
 
Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk said federal court intervention is necessary.
 
“I find it a bit frustrating that Arizona’s marching ahead with facilitating and implementing the availability of marijuana, a controlled substance, in conflict with federal law,’’ said Polk, who chairs the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys’ Advisory Council. She said a court needs to “deal with the issue of federal preemption head-on.’’
 
Okun initially was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint. Officers searched her vehicle after a dog alerted on it, finding marijuana and hashish.
 
The Border Patrol turned the matter over to county officials. But charges against her were dropped because she is enrolled in California’s Medical Marijuana Program; Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Act recognizes cards issued in other states.
 
Okun then asked the court to return the three-fourths of an ounce of marijuana that was seized. While the judge agreed, Ralph Ogden, who was the sheriff at that time, did not.
