Mexico Will Not Legalize Medical Marijuana Anytime Soon

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto seemed hell-bent on legalizing medical marijuana earlier this year, a recent report from Vice News suggests that all of the noise surrounding the possibility of major drug reforms in a nation, which is plagued by some of the most vicious cartel activity in the world, may have simply been herky-jerky politics that could end up preventing legalization from happening anytime in the near future. 

Last Friday, the Mexico Senate, specifically President Peña’s Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), decided to sandbag the medical marijuana issue by rescheduling talks over the proposal until, at least, the end of summer. There is speculation that this sudden postponement could be an indication that lawmakers are no longer interested in pushing to provide citizens with a program that allows some legal use of the cannabis plant and that the whole grand scheme discussed in great lengths throughout the first part 2016 may simply get lost in the cracks of a shifty system.

Dead man leads Gwinnett police to $12 million marijuana stash

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, June, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

A dead man led Gwinnett County police to $12 million worth of marijuana on Monday.

Gwinnett County police spokeswoman Cpl. Michele Pihera said officers went to a storage yard near Norcross around 11 a.m., after a 911 caller reported finding "a man slumped over near a white van." The man — later identified as 31-year-old Connecticut resident Johnny Taylor — was dead, apparently from natural causes.

Officers "looking around the scene for signs of foul play" soon "noticed a very faint smell of suspected marijuana coming from inside the van." K9s were called to the scene and didn't detect anything, but a box inside the van was eventually opened — and a large amount of marijuana was discovered inside, sealed in bags.

Medical Cannabis Advocates And CARERS Act Sponsors Hold Senate Briefing Urging Immediate Protection For Patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, June, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

blueberry kush marijuana strainToday, Americans for Safe Access (ASA) presented a briefing on the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act (S. 683/H.R. 1538) with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. The briefing featured policy experts and medical cannabis (marijuana) stakeholders who would be protected by the bill. Lead CARERS Act sponsor Senator Cory Booker spoke on behalf of the bill as well. The group urged Congress to take swift action to protect existing medical cannabis programs and the patients that rely upon them by passing the CARERS Act, a bill that is currently awaiting a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Even though some form of medical marijuana is already legal in 42 states, federal law still makes it a crime to use this form of medicine, even in states where it is legal,” said Senator Gillibrand. “This is clearly a case of antiquated ideology getting in the way of scientific progress. I will continue to urge all of my colleagues in the Senate to support the CARERS Act, so we can help our families have access to the medicine they need without fear of arrest.”

“The recent discussion about lifting the federal barriers to medical cannabis research is an encouraging signal, but we must remember that there are millions of patients in the U.S. who need medical cannabis today,” said Steph Sherer, executive director of ASA. “Patients should not suffer while waiting for the fruit of this research, which may take years or even decades to accomplish.”
