Vermont Governor Expresses Support For Marijuana Legalization In State Of The State Address

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

vermont marijuana decriminalizationToday Vermont’s Governor Peter Shumlin delivered his State of the State address. A significant portion of it involved marijuana legalization. Governor Shumlin came out with strong statements in support of marijuana legalization. 2016 is going to be a big year for marijuana legalization, and Vermont is considered by many to be one of the most likely states to legalize marijuana via legislative action, which has yet to happen in America. Below is what Peter Shumlin said today, via activist Matt Simon’s Facebook page:

“The outdated War on Drugs has also failed, and there is no greater example than our nation’s marijuana laws. That’s why Vermont took steps to change our criminal penalties and to institute a well-regulated medical marijuana system that now serves 2,400 Vermonters. This careful approach shows thatwe know how to regulate marijuana thoughtfully and cautiously, avoiding the pitfalls that have caused other states to stumble where Vermont succeeded.

But the black market of drug dealers selling marijuana for recreational use is alive and well, serving over 80,000 Vermonters who reported using marijuana last year. These illegal dealers couldn’t care less how young their customers are or what’s in the product they sell, or what illegal drugs you buy from their stash, much less whether they pay taxes on their earnings. That’s why I will work with you to craft the right bill that thoughtfully and carefully eliminates the era of prohibition that is currently failing us so miserably.

Canada and Mexico Must Prove Case With United Nations Before Legalizing Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, January, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Before Canada, Mexico or any other country can legalize marijuana across their respective nation, governments must first show the United Nations General Assembly later this year how they plan to make it happen while remaining in compliance with several international drug treaties.

A briefing memo sent to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which was obtained by The Canadian Press, suggests that the northern nation will have to divulge a plan to legalize, regulate and restrict access to marijuana without violating three treaties, all of which make the possession and manufacture of the cannabis plant for recreational purposes illegal worldwide. 

"As part of examining legalization of cannabis possession and production, Canada will need to explore how to inform the international community and will have to take the steps needed to adjust its obligations under these conventions,” the memo reads

Not only will Canada’s sales pitch be required when the United Nation’s General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem meets in April, but the brief indicates that Trudeau’s legalization concept will need to be strong enough to essentially convince the world that this reform is a move in a responsible direction.

School committee to vote on medical marijuana policy

Category: News | Posted on Thu, January, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

AUBURN, Maine (AP) -- A Maine school committee is scheduled to consider a policy that would allow students to have medical marijuana administered in school under certain conditions.

The committee approved a draft medical policy last month. It's scheduled to give it a final vote on Wednesday.

Auburn Assistant Superintendent Michelle McClellan says any medical marijuana would have to be approved by a physician, and administered in school by a parent or guardian. Nurses wouldn't be able to administer the drug.

Marijuana doses would have to be in non-smoking form.
