Illinois Prepares for Medical Marijuana Upgrade

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the Illinois medical marijuana pilot program came limping out of the gate last year, the state's General Assembly has put its stamp of approval on a bill aimed at upgrading the state of cannabis medicine by extending the program’s expiration date and giving those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and terminal illnesses permission to participate.

The guts of this modest expansion effort consist of Senate Bill 10, a proposal begging Governor Bruce Rauner not to kill off the state’s medical marijuana program for a few more years. When the Illinois Medical Cannabis Program was pushed through back in 2013, it came marred with a “sunset provision” that insisted the state had until the beginning of 2018 to test the waters of cannabis medicine before deciding whether to sign on a more permanent plan. If the governor signs the latest measure, which is expected, the pilot program would remain on the books until the summer of 2020, not to mention give thousands more patients an opportunity to use medical marijuana as part of their overall healthcare strategy.

Obama Commutes Sentences of 42 Drug War POWs

Category: Politics | Posted on Tue, June, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Last week, President Barack Obama announced that he had commuted the sentences of 42 inmates convicted of drug offenses as part of his ongoing effort against "outdated and unduly harsh sentencing laws."

The White House statement said: "The individuals receiving a presidential commutation today have more than repaid their debt to society and earned this second chance."

The 42 were serving sentences of up to life in prison for non-violent offenses. The statement noted that Obama has now commuted the sentences of 348 such convicts—more than the past seven presidents combined.

However, these figures have to be kept in perspective. Nearly 10,000 non-violent offenders who would have likely received substantially lower sentences if convicted of the same offenses today have applied to the White House for clemency. The list is getting longer, not shorter.

West Virginia Legislators Propose Bill To End Marijuana Prohibition

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

west virginia medical marijuanaGood news out of West Virginia today. See the legislative alert I received below:

The West Virginia Legislature failed to reform its marijuana policies in the 2015-2016 legislative session, primarily because House Speaker Tim Armstead continues to oppose even the most modest, incremental reforms. Fortunately, now that a special session has been called, five delegates have decided this is an opportunity to raise the issue of marijuana legalization. Del. Mike Pushkin (D-Charleston) and a bipartisan group of four co-sponsors have introduced HB 114, which would make marijuana legal on a limited basis in West Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail published an editorial praising these legislators’ efforts, calling legalization an “excellent idea.” The Gazette-Mail noted that the bill “has no chance” of passing in the special session, but it still presents an important opportunity to raise the issue with elected officials.

Please take a moment to contact your delegates and senators today and urge them to consider the benefits of ending marijuana prohibition.

Then, please share this message with your family and friends.

Sincerely,

Matt Simon
New England Political Director
