Schedule II? Not So Fast, Hillary

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, March, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Speaking at a recent campaign stop in South Carolina, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called for reclassifying marijuana under the federal Controlled Substances Act, moving it from Schedule I—the most restrictive category—to Schedule II. “The problem with medical marijuana is, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence about how well it works for certain conditions,” Clinton opined. “But we haven’t done any research. Why? Because it is considered what is called a Schedule I drug, and you can’t even do research in it.”

To resolve this dilemma, Clinton said, she would move marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II, “so that researchers at universities [and the] National Institutes of Health can start researching what is the best way to use it—how much of a dose does somebody need, how does it interact with other medications.”

Four In Five Illinois Voters Support Medicinal Marijuana But Split On Recreational

Right now Illinois has a flawed medical marijuana program. Patients aren’t allowed to grow their own medicine, and there is a limited number of conditions that qualify a patient for the program. That’s just two examples out of many of the deficiencies of Illinois’ medical marijuana program. Attempts to expand the program have been thwarted by the Governor, and since the program is a pilot program, there’s not even any guarantee that it will continue after the pilot program period ends.

The results of a poll were released today by by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute which found that 82 percent of Illinois voters that were surveyed support medical marijuana. So why is the program so limited? Unfortunately the support for recreational cannabis wasn’t as high, although 45% is still within striking distance of a majority. It will just take some educating and spreading awareness. Below are the results of the poll, which can also be found at this link here:

Voters in Illinois show overwhelming support for medicinal marijuana use, but less than half of them support legalization for recreational use, according to a new poll conducted by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

The sample of 1,000 registered voters was taken Feb. 15 – 20 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.

When asked whether they favor or oppose legalized medicinal marijuana in Illinois, 82 percent express support for the policy. Only 16 percent oppose and 3 percent did not know or answered otherwise.

Check Out One Of NCIA’s Quarterly Cannabis Caucuses In April

Category: Events | Posted on Tue, March, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

national cannabis industry association ncia arizonaI have attended a handful of National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) events, and literally every single one of them have been educational, empowering, and were fantastic for networking opportunities. NCIA does an outstanding job of advocating for its members and the cannabis industry as a whole, which is why I have always supported them. They also hire a lot of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) alumni, which is always a smart move and a surefire way to improve any organization or company.

One type of NCIA event that I haven’t attended yet is one of their ‘Quarterly Cannabis Caucuses.’ The first round of caucuses took place in January, and I heard from several people that they were amazing. I am going to try as hard as I can to get up to the Portland caucus on April 12th to check it out. Looking at some of the people that have been talking about it on social media, it is shaping up to be an amazing event.

I really like the concept of quarterly regional events, and tip my hat to NCIA for putting these on. The cannabis industry landscape is changing at a rapid pace, with stuff changing/evolving constantly. I know in my state, Oregon, you never really know 100% what is going on with so many changes being proposed/approved and so many hearings, etc. Having a meeting every three months to get a lot of people in the same room to get educated and educate each other is a great idea in my opinion.
