Eric Holder Urged to leave states with recreational Marijuana alone

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
eric-holder-mmjSeven congressional Democrats from Washington have asked Attorney General Eric Holder for assurance the Justice Department won't punish those who sell and smoke marijuana under the state's new recreational pot law.
 
Last November, the voters in the Evergreen State approved legislation that legalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana by adults. But it is still illegal under the federal Controlled Substances Act.
 
In a letter released Tuesday, Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray, and Reps. Adam Smith, Jim McDermott, Suzan DelBene, Denny Heck, and Derek Kilmer, asked Holder to assure marijuana users and sellers that they won't be prosecuted, The Seattle Times reports. 
 
"We hope that you will exercise your significant discretionary authority by choosing not to . . . prosecute our residents and state employees acting in compliance with these laws," the letter states. 
 
Marijuana could be sold in stores in Washington as early as next year and will be supervised under the auspices of the state's Liquor Control Board.
 
The drug will be taxed with revenues going towards healthcare and programs for the prevention of substance abuse.

Rand Paul: Marijuana users lose IQ points and lack motivation

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 19th 2013 by THCFinder

I guess the Senator never met this guy...

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said Monday he did not support the legalization of marijuana, though he did support some form of decriminalization.
 
“What I think is that if your kid or one of his friends goes out and gets caught with marijuana, sticking them in prison is a big mistake,” he told Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution. “So I don’t really believe in prison sentences for these minor non-violent drug offenses, but I’m not willing to go all the way to say it is a good idea either. I think people who use marijuana all the time lose IQ points, I think they lose their drive to show up for work.”
 
Paul, however, added that he believed individual states should be allowed to decide whether they wanted to legalize marijuana or not.

A Patient's Plea for Medical Marijuana in New York

Earlier this month, the New York State Assembly passed medical marijuana for the fourth time. Although this is good news, many New Yorkers living with debilitating illnesses, like myself, have learned to not get our hopes up. Unlike the 18 other states and the District of Columbia that have medical marijuana programs, New York does not provide compassionate medical care to its residents. It is completely unfair to allow people to suffer unnecessarily when there is a natural treatment which could potentially ease their pain.
 
The bill currently pending in Albany is one of the strictest and most tightly regulated medical marijuana bills in the country. It would allow patients living with an illness which their health care provider believes medical marijuana to be beneficial to access 2.5 ounces to alleviate their symptoms.
 
Research has shown marijuana to have a palliative and therapeutic effect in treating the symptoms from illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, Cancer, and multiple sclerosis (MS). As someone living with MS, I have a special interest in health care practitioners being allowed to recommend medical marijuana here in New York.
 
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at 34 years old; some of my symptoms include tingling, numbness, neuropathic pain, and fatigue. I have tried many of the prescribed pharmaceutical treatments, but none of them have had much of an impact, especially on the neuropathic pain.
 
I learned from my neurologist that my immune system was attacking something called myelin, the fatty substance that surrounds and protects the nerve fibers in the central nervous system. The nerve fibers themselves are damaged. The damaged myelin forms scar tissue (sclerosis), which gives the disease its name. When any part of the myelin sheath or nerve fiber is damaged or destroyed, nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and spinal cord are distorted or interrupted, producing a variety of symptoms.
 
As an attorney and leader in my community, I will not break the law. The risk of losing my license to practice law and the negative attention it would bring to my family is too much.
 
I want to continue serving my community as long as I am physically able to do so. I am convinced that using medical marijuana will enable me to continue to be productive and improve my quality of life.
