Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

At the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs in New York on Tuesday, Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto unveiled his support for the legalization of medical marijuana.

"I am giving voice to those who have expressed the necessity of changing the regulatory framework to authorize the use of marijuana for medical and scientific purposes," Pena Nieto said in a speech at UNGASS, adding that groups in Mexico have "showed the need to lift, in accordance with international standards, the amount of marijuana that can be considered for personal use, with the purpose of not criminalizing users.”

Pena Nieto will release details of how Mexico might implement the policy shift later this week.

Colorado's treatment centers have seen a trend toward heavier marijuana use among patients in the years after the state legalized the drug, according to a new report from the state Department of Public Safety.

United States Supreme Court Rejects Case Involving Life Sentence For Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Supreme Court marijuanaNo one should ever be locked in a cage because of marijuana. Not one day, and sure as hell not a life sentence. Yet, sadly, that is what is happening to people at this very moment. Marijuana opponents are always quick to say, ‘Yes, there are people in prison for marijuana, but they are a very small percentage of people that get caught with marijuana.’ As if that’s an OK stance to have. They might as well say, ‘Nevermind those poor souls seeing their lives wasted in prison, there aren’t that many of them, so they don’t count.’

I am an avid cannabis consumer, and I couldn’t fathom getting sentenced to life in prison for a plant that has been proven to be 114 times safer than alcohol. Lee Carroll Brooker is serving a life sentence in prison. He appealed his case all the way up to the Alabama Supreme Court, which upheld his conviction. Mr. Brooker then appealed his case to the United States Supreme Court. Sadly, the Court decided to pass on his case today. Per ABC:

The Supreme Court on Monday turned away an appeal from a 76-year-old Alabama man who was sentenced to life in prison without parole for possessing less than three pounds of marijuana that he said he grew for personal use.
