Looming Marijuana Ruling Could Limit Federal Prosecutions

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Rolland Gregg and his family have fought federal marijuana charges for more than three years, arguing that the roughly 70 marijuana plants investigators found on their Washington property were for their own medicinal use and fully complied with state law.

A federal jury last year convicted Gregg, his mother and his then-wife of growing 50 to 100 marijuana plants — amounts their attorney said are in compliance with state medical marijuana law. With prison sentences looming, they have now turned to a recent act of Congress that they say should have stopped the U.S. Department of Justice from prosecuting them because they were doing what their state allowed. Marijuana is illegal under federal law, and the DOJ disagrees with Gregg's understanding of the new law.

This could be a transformative year in more ways than one. Not only are voters heading to the polls in six months to decide who should become the next President of the United States of America, but voters in quite a few states could be heading to their respective state polls to decide whether or not to expand the use of medical or recreational marijuana within their state.

Since California approved Prop 215 in 1996 to allow for the compassionate use of medical marijuana in select patients, the currently illicit substance at the federal level has expanded like a weed. Today, following the recent legislative approval of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, there are two dozen states that allow physicians to prescribe marijuana for medical use. Although the ailments can vary from state to state, many terminal cancers, glaucoma, and epilepsy are good examples of ailments with near universal acceptance across legal medical marijuana states.

Colorado Lawmakers Reject Organic Marijuana Labeling

cannabis soilOrganic marijuana is becoming more and more popular. As I always say, the average cannabis consumer is becoming more knowledgeable and sophisticated every day, and knowing what one is consuming is becoming more important. For a long time knowing what was in a person’s cannabis wasn’t an option. You simply got what you got and hoped for the best. In legal states, those days are going away, if they haven’t already.

Now in legal states consumers can purchase marijuana that has been tested to know what exactly is in the cannabis. The testing also determines what is not in the marijuana, specifically pesticides and other undesirable substances. But testing only tells a user what levels are in the cannabis, and not how the cannabis was grown. More and more consumers specifically want organic marijuana, similar to how more and more people are only eating organic foods.

But just as with organic foods, labeling marijuana as being truly organic is not as easy as some would think. The State of Colorado was trying to become the first state to come up with standard organic labeling for marijuana, but lawmakers failed to pass such a measure over perception concerns. Per Marijuana Business Daily:
