Marijuana-Legalization Efforts and Their Impact on the Presidential Race

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

With the race for the White House heating up, the “politics of marijuana” is looming as a possibly significant factor.

Twenty-four state ballot initiatives on marijuana legalization in 16 states have been filed already and will be voted on in November 2016, including in the “swing states” of Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, and New Mexico.

This is important because marijuana-legalization ballot initiatives are widely acknowledged to “turn out the vote” of single-issue, first-time, and younger voters – all of whom disproportionately vote Democratic. In close races and swing states, they may make the difference. Insiders have reported that these voters have determined the outcome in several contested races and states in the last two election cycles (e.g., in Barack Obama’s defeat of Mitt Romney in Colorado in 2012).

Moreover, the marijuana-legalization issue is increasingly a focus in U.S. Senate and House races and in pro- and anti-marijuana bills. Recently, the House Republican leadership successfully stripped out pro-marijuana-legalization amendments to two pending bills.

Tommy Chong Speaks Out On Legalizing Marijuana In Michigan

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, September, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana legalization milegalize“I support the legalization of marijuana and the smartest way to get this done in Michigan is the MILegalize proposal… Support MILegalize. I do.” Those words, uttered by motion picture actor, comedian and cultural icon Tommy Chong have been heard on Michigan’s radio airwaves as of September 1.

For now the spots are being broadcast only on station 98.5 WUPS. With a broadcast area covering central and northern Lower Peninsula, their signal reaches cities like Mount Pleasant, Houghton Lake and the Traverse area.

Air time for the WUPS radio spots was donated by Indoor Grower’s Edge, a chain of indoor gardening stores in the Cadillac/Big Rapids/Mt. Pleasant area. Chong’s participation was facilitated by ownership of BDT’s Pipe and Tobacco Shops.

“Without BDT’s and Indoor Grower’s Edge, this opportunity with WUPS would not have happened,” said MILegalize Board member Jamie Lowell. MILegalize is seeking corporate or private donations to launch these audio clips into other radio markets around Michigan.

“The best laws come from the people, not the politicians, and that’s why I support MILegalize,” Chong says in one commercial. In another he says, “Fund schools, fix roads, right-size our government. If these issues are important to you, MILegalize is the proposal for you.”

Reefer Rambos: Indiana Enlists Military Forces to Uproot Cannabis Plants

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

While parts of the United States are now generating millions of tax dollars from the sale of marijuana to put toward the betterment of their communities, Indiana continues to waste valuable resources to aggressively eradicate pot plants from Hoosier soil—all at the expense of the state’s taxpayers.

The latest Southern Indiana shakedown was touted “Operation Smoke Out,” a shoot-the-moon collaboration between Indiana State Police (ISP) and military forces, including the Indiana National Guard Counter Drug Task Force, the DEA, the U.S. Forest Service, Civil Air Patrol and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

Together, these soldiers of the drug war embarked on a mission at the end of August to uproot “dangerous” cannabis plants illegally growing in cornfields, in forests and on public lands all across the southern portion of the state. At the end of this battle against the bud, Indiana law enforcement proudly announced that the exercise resulted in a haul of approximately 5,000 pot plants from 146 grow sites, four pounds of processed marijuana and the arrest of 16 people associated with these operations.

Indiana State Police estimates the overall seizure is worth a whopping $7.5 million.
