DEA tells Elizabeth Warren decision on reclassifying marijuana could come by July

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Agency says ruling could be made by July as timetable is the latest development in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s challenge to federal marijuana laws

The Drug Enforcement Administration said it could decide whether marijuana should remain classified at the same level as LSD and heroin in “the first half of 2016”.

The agency slipped this news into a letter to the Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, who with seven other senators, had asked for more information on marijuana’s scheduling and about limits on medical marijuana research. The 25-page letter was obtained by Matt Ferner at the Huffington Post.

Join Me April 12 In Portland For The National Cannabis Industry Association Cannabis Caucus Event

Category: Events | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

I don’t get out to a lot of events, but I try to get to as many National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) events as possible. NCIA is not only the leading national advocacy group for the emerging cannabis industry (I think they are the only one!), but they also do an amazing job at the local level too. One example of that is the upcoming Quarterly Cannabis Caucus events that are being held all over America. One of the locations is Portland, Oregon, which I plan on attending on April 12. I hope to see you there! Below is more information about the event in Portland:

The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), the only national trade association for legal marijuana businesses in the U.S., will host an Oregon Cannabis Caucus on Tuesday, April 12, in Portland. The Cannabis Caucus is an educational and networking event designed to update cannabis professionals on the latest in policy and industry developments, while helping connect local cannabis business leaders.

Featured speakers for the event include Jake Oken-Berg from the Office of Sen. Jeff Merkley, Heather Smyth of MJ Freeway, and Taylor West of NCIA.

As Legal Weed Goes Global, International Drug Treaties Are Questioned

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

In a teleconference on Wednesday afternoon, lawmakers and policy advocates from Canada and Mexico detailed their interests in marijuana legalization and discussed the upcoming United Nations General Assembly Special Session on drugs to potentially assist in policy reform on such substances. Both Canada and Mexico have recently made strides to legalize marijuana, potentially violating international drug control regimes. Nonetheless, advocates for marijuana legalization are pushing forward and pulling no punches as they make the case for regulation, and this teleconference was no exception.

Phoning in from Canada, Liberal Parliament Member Nathaniel Erskine-Smith wasted no time arguing against prohibition. “I want to start with a simple and broad proposition… the War on Drugs is a failure,” he said, adding that “[prohibition] causes more harm” than the problems it purports to solve. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal party campaigned on the promise of legalizing marijuana before winning the election in November, but implementing that reform hasn’t been as simple as advocating for it.
