Guatemalan President Will Present Plan To Legalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, April, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
guatemalan-president-to-legalize-marijuanaGuatemalan President Otto Perez Molina said Wednesday his country could present a plan before year’s end to legalize the production of marijuana and opium poppies. His comments came in an interview with Reuters.
 
Perez, a conservative and former general, has been a harsh critic of the US-led war on drugs in Latin America, repeatedly denouncing such policies at international forums. He has alsopreviously mentioned the possibility of moving to legalize marijuana and opium production, but has yet to put forward a concrete plan to do so.
 
But a presidential commission has been studying the issue of reforms in the country’s drug laws, and Perez told Reuters he expected the commission to make its recommendations by October and that the measures could be presented by year’s end. That could include a bill to legalize drugs, particularly marijuana, Perez said.
 
“The other thing we’re exploring… is the legalization of the poppy plantations on the border with Mexico, so they’re controlled and sold for medicinal ends,” Perez said. “These two things could be steps taken on a legal basis.”
 
While Afghanistan is by far the world’s largest opium producer, accounting for nearly 90% of global production, poppies are also grown in the Western hemisphere — in Mexico and Colombia, as well as Guatemala. Western hemisphere opium accounts for most of the heroin consumed in the United States.
 
Perez is keeping a careful eye on his northern neighbor, too. Mexico decriminalized drug possession in 2009, but has been loath to take further steps to end the drug war there, although there are now proposals afoot to legalize marijuana. Meanwhile, Mexican drug trafficking organizations, under pressure in their home country, have expanded their operations in Guatemala and other Central American nations.

69 Percent Of Americans Say Alcohol More Harmful Than Marijuana

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – In a national survey that shows the American public is ready for a truce in the ongoing war on drugs, a two-thirds majority of U.S. adults (67 percent) say that the government should focus more on providing treatment for people using drugs such as heroin and cocaine instead of jail time.
 
A new Pew Research Center survey finds that just about one-quarter of Americans (26 percent) think the U.S. government should focus on prosecuting users of hard drugs. Treatment-based programs, rather than imprisonment, are favored more by Democrats and independent voters, but a majority of Republicans (51 percent) agree that the government should direct its efforts towards a treatment approach.
 
A nearly two-to-one ratio of the American public surveyed says it is a positive thing that some states are moving away from mandatory sentences for non-violent drug offenders.
 
According to FBI data, police made one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds in 2012. There were an estimated 1,552,432 arrests for drug-related crimes in 2012 – a slight increase from the 1,531,251 drug arrests in 2011.
Marijuana offenses accounted for 48.3 percent of all drug arrests, a slight decrease from 49.5 percent in 2011, which itself was the highest rate since before 1995.
 
And as several states in addition to Washington and Colorado move toward legalizing recreational use of marijuana, three-quarters of the U.S. public (75 percent) – including both those for and against the legal use of marijuana – agree that the sale and use of marijuana will inevitably become legal nationwide.
 
And by wide margins, Americans view the drinking of alcohol as a more harmful habit on both a personal health and societal level.
Sixty-nine percent of Americans say alcohol is more harmful to people’s health, in contrast to just 15 percent who say the same of marijuana use. And 63 percent of Americans surveyed said they view alcohol as more harmful to society, in comparison to just 23 percent who say the same of marijuana.
 
The data represents a larger, major shift in attitude toward marijuana use.

Green Crack - Sativa

Green Crack was originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s with the birth name of Cush. It was later renamed "Green Crack" by none other than Snoop Dogg because of its extreme potency and the crave to keep smoking it. Green Crack is extremely popular in Southern California with both medical marijuana patients for its strong sativa effects, and recreational users who love its sweet taste and happy high. Green Crack has a medium-green color punctuated with orange and bluish hairs. It has a tangy, fruity smell (thus the nickname "Mango") and the taste is sweet as well. There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica. The better known phenom is the sativa dominant strain, and the only sign of indica genetics being present are the tight nugs.

Medical marijuana for epilepsy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, April, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-for-epilepsy-in-kidsSPRINGFIELD — Children would be able to use medical marijuana to treat severe cases of epilepsy and public universities would ban smoking on campuses under measures lawmakers advanced Wednesday.
 
The medical marijuana proposal cleared the Senate 49-5 as sponsoring Sen. Iris Martinez dismissed worries that children would be “getting stoned.” The Chicago Democrat said the oil part of the cannabis plant that’s been helpful to children contains little to no THC — the element often associated with getting high.
 
The bill, which heads to the House, would add epilepsy to the list of ailments that medical marijuana can be used for in Illinois and restrict use for epilepsy patients to those under age 18. Medical marijuana was approved by lawmakers last year for numerous ailments, but it is not expected to be available for the public until 2015.
 
Martinez said she took up the issue after receiving a letter from a mother who moved to Colorado with her child so he could receive medical marijuana to treat his seizures.
 
“They had to leave their family and their home in Chicago,” Martinez said. “I’m a mom, and that letter moved me to do something.”
 
The children would be given the oil to drink or take intravenously if they cannot swallow.
Republican Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington objected, saying calling it a hard choice because “children are struggling.”
