Marijuana task force backs DUI bill in legislature

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
DENVER – The marijuana legalization task force endorsed a bill Tuesday establishing a legal limit for driving stoned and recommended juveniles caught possessing pot be given a warning before criminal charges are filed.
But agreement couldn’t be reached on other issues, such as the fundamental structure of the marijuana industry when it comes to who is able to grow, distribute and sell the drug.
Tuesday was the fourth meeting of the 24 member task force established by Gov. John Hickenlooper in December. The group is working on recommendations that will likely guide an omnibus bill — a conglomeration of regulations — to be considered by lawmakers this session.
The issue of driving under the influence of marijuana was considered separately from other recommendations, and the members voted to endorse a proposed bill that is about to start working its way through the General Assembly.
House Bill 114, by House Republican Leader Mark Waller and Democrat Rep. Rhonda Fields, would set the legal limit for driving at 5 nanograms of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in their blood.
The proposal mirrors the drunken driving limit of .08 blood alcohol content, except in one important way. Violators would be able to argue in court that they — because of their size or tolerance or other factors — are not in fact intoxicated or impaired at the 5 nanograms of THC level.
Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson was among those opposed to the legislation in Tuesday’s task force meeting.
Jackson said he favored a zero tolerance policy, one that would mirror the current drunk driving laws.
Fatal Crash Numbers
Between 2006 and 2011, 240 people were killed in Colorado in crashes where the driver tested positive for THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. The number of fatalities with drivers under the influence of marijuana has increased over the years, while state-wide fatal crashes have decreased.  
Year      Fatal Crashes THC      Total fatal crashes state      percent THC
2006      21                           721                                  2.9%

2008      31                           712                                  4.4%

Mexicos president opposes legalizing marijuana, calls it a gateway drug

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, February, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
More than 12,000 people were murdered last year in the Mexican drug war, The Washington Post’s Nick Miroff reported, a figure that’s been largely unchanged over the past three years. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has vowed to cut down on the violence, and he recently talked with the German news magazine Der Spiegel about his priorities.
SPIEGEL: Some U.S. states have relaxed the prohibition of marijuana. Doesn’t that deprive the drug war of its credibility?
Peña Nieto: It should at least encourage a debate. I’m opposed to legalizing marijuana because it acts as a gateway drug.
[What it means: Marijuana may or may not be a gateway drug. Legalization may or may not bankrupt the cartels. But here Peña Nieto is reinforcing earlier statements by his administration that legalization in the United States may undermine efforts to stop the flow of marijuana across the border.
Shortly after Colorado and Washington voted to legalize the drug, Peña Nieto’s top adviser, Luis Videgaray, told a radio station in Mexico: “Obviously, we can’t handle a product that is illegal in Mexico, trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States ... it now has a different status,”.

Two House Dems say Legalize Recreational Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, February, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
When voters in Colorado and Washington state voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use last November, some wondered how the new statewide statutes would square with federal law, which still classifies marijuana as an illegal drug under the Controlled Substances Act.
But Rep. Jared Polis, D-Col., believes that a legal confrontation can be avoided: on Tuesday, along with Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., he introduced a bill legalizing marijuana and regulating it under the renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, and Firearms.
The "Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act" would charge the renamed bureau with regulating marijuana as it does alcohol and tobacco. States would still be allowed to ban marijuana production and it would remain illegal to transport marijuana to a state where such a ban exists.
"This legislation doesn't force any state to legalize marijuana, but Colorado and the 18 other jurisdictions that have chosen to allow marijuana for medical or recreational use deserve the certainty of knowing that federal agents won't raid state-legal businesses," said Polis in a press release. "Congress should simply allow states to regulate marijuana as they see fit and stop wasting federal tax dollars on the failed drug war."
