Senator Graham Lends Support To Comprehensive Medical Marijuana Bill

Yesterday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined the bipartisan Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act (S. 683) as a co-sponsor. The support of Senator Graham coincides with the one-year anniversary of the bill’s introduction by Senators Cory Booker (D-NY), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and Rand Paul (R-KY).  The CARERS Act is the most comprehensive piece of medical cannabis legislation ever introduced in the U.S. Congress and would remedy the state-federal conflict over medical cannabis law.

“Graham’s support of CARERS Act is a significant step for patients” said Americans for Safe Access Executive Director, Steph Sherer. “This development should finally compel fellow Republican and Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley to allow the bill a vote. This is the only way to respect the 40 states that have laws recognizing medical use and the more than 80% of voters who support it.”

The passage of the CARERS Act  would allow state medical marijuana programs to continue without federal interference, move marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II of the Controlled Substance Schedule, remove the marijuana compound Cannabidiol (CBD) entirely from the schedule, create access to banking services for marijuana businesses in legal states, eliminate the DEA-mandated “NIDA-monopoly” that prevents researchers from obtaining marijuana for clinical studies, and allow Veterans Health Administration physicians to write recommendations in states that have established a medical marijuana program.

MA Committee Fears Marijuana Legalization, Recommends Strict Regulations

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Special Senate Committee On Marijuana released a reportanalyzing the potential “policy ramifications” of legalized marijuana for recreational use—a reform voters will decide on November’s ballot. While claiming that the committee had not taken “an official position” on the legalization initiative, the report boasts a dearth of reasons why marijuana legalization could be harmful to the state and is mute on the potential benefits of the policy change. 

The report cites “concerns” that marijuana legalization may increase youth access, stoned drivers would endanger residents and tax revenues would not offset spending on the social consequences of legalization. Other pressing issues were edible marijuana products marketed as appealing to children, the persistence of the black market post-legalization and suggested that high-THC marijuana may make the drug more “addictive” today than it was in the past.
