Massachusetts: Talks on Revamped Pot Bill Appear to Stall as Deadline Nears

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — House and Senate negotiators chased what appeared to be an increasingly elusive compromise over the state’s recreational marijuana law on Friday, a day that legislators had earlier pegged as a self-imposed deadline for reaching a deal.

A six-member conference committee shed little light on its discussions while meeting off and on behind closed doors with little apparent progress.

House Speaker Robert DeLeo adjourned the House until Monday, ruling out any possibility that a final vote could be held on Saturday.

Democratic Rep. Mark Cusack, the chief House negotiator, said earlier in the day he remained “hopeful” for an agreement. His counterpart in the Senate, Democrat Patricia Jehlen, replied, “I can’t say that,” when asked if the conference committee was deadlocked.

Marijuana is an invaluable tool for law enforcement in America—but only so long as cannabis remains illegal, which is exactly what most law-enforcement lobbies and pro-police lawmakers want.

Under prohibition, cannabis is an incomparable catch-all excuse. The mere whiff of cannabis is sufficient probable cause for a traffic stop or, where the police-state tactic is still accepted, start a stop-and-frisk routine.

And that all ends as soon as cannabis is legalized.

According to a report from the Stanford Open Policing Project, which analyzed more than 100 million traffic stops across 31 states, motorists of all races are as much as three times less likely to be stopped and searched where, thanks to legalization, marijuana is no longer available as an excuse.

Massachusetts Legalization Regulations: Senate and House Must Find Common Ground

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, July, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Massachusetts House and Senate members have until the end of the month to hammer out a bill that would amend the marijuana legalization measure approved by voters in November.

The two chambers approved separate bills aimed at overhauling the voter-approved law legalizing the recreational use of marijuana in Massachusetts.

The House and Senate also have to find middle ground on what a city or town wants to do if they want to ban the sale of pot in their community. The House bill allows a board of selectmen to ban marijuana sales from towns, while the Senate would leave it up to voters.
