DC’s Attorney General Supports the Decriminalization of All Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

While the District of Columbia continues to wage war against the scourge of synthetic marijuana, one of the city’s leading administrators has suggested that the legalization of drugs like cocaine and heroin, in a manner similar to what the city has done with marijuana, might be in the best interest of the community.

Earlier last week, D.C Attorney General Karl Racine appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to discuss some of the issues the District has encountered due to the sale of dangerous synthetic cannabinoids called Spice and K2. 

During the segment, a caller from Illinois chimed in, arguing that one of the primary reasons this ghastly alternative high even exists is the continued prohibition on all drugs.

The caller said that the criminalization of all drugs is a “civil liberties issue, and when people want to consume substances that alter their state of consciousness they should be allowed to. Now, if you didn’t have such a crackdown on drugs like marijuana, cocaine and heroin, there wouldn’t even be a market for synthetic drugs.”

It was apparent throughout the caller’s opinionated spiel that Racine did not totally disagree with his argument. His basic accord on the issue was later confirmed in his response.

Flourishing marijuana trade is leaving Denver short on warehouse space

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

Here's an amusing byproduct of the legalization of marijuana use in some American states: it's putting a strain on the nation's freight network. The Wall Street Journal reportsthat Denver, a central hub for transportation of goods across the country, is experiencing a shortage of warehouse space due to increased demand from marijuana producers.

Cresa Partners, a real estate brokerage firm, reports that as much as a third of new warehouse space leased in Colorado over the past 18 months has gone to marijuana growers and distributors. They need ample space to conduct their business, so they're competing hard for it when it becomes available and raising prices as a result. The WSJnotes a 10 percent increase in warehouse rent prices and a doubling of the cost to buy warehouse space in Colorado since the start of last year. This has left local businesses frustrated, but it's also adding to the costs of interstate traders who are finding it hard to secure storage for their goods as they pass between the US west coast and midwest.

Florida Cities Moving Full Speed Ahead With Marijuana Decriminalization

Local governments in Florida are taking marijuana law reform into their own hands by adopting marijuana decriminalization ordinances as an alternative to more severe state sanctions.

We first wrote about this trend in July when Florida’s largest county, Miami-Dade, passed an ordinance allowing local law enforcement to treat marijuana possession offenses involving 20 grams or less as a civil infraction, punishable by a $100 fine.

Many other communities have followed suit. City commissioners in Miami Beach imposed a similar policy in July; authorities in Hallandale Beach acted likewise last week.

Key West City City officials are poised to finalize a similar measure in September while lawmakers in Palm Beach County are considering taking similar action. Decriminalization is also gaining momentum among lawmakers in the city of St. Petersburg.

These changes to local laws are especially significant in Florida, where state lawmakers have failed to even consider amending its archaic and overly punitive marijuana policies. Consequently, Florida possesses the third highest annual marijuana possession arrest total (roughly 60,000 arrests per year) in the nation.
