DC Council Committee On The Judiciary Permanently Bans Marijuana Consumption In Private Clubs

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

washington dc decriminalization marijuana possessionToday the Council of the District of Columbia Committee on the Judiciary voted to dilute the will of District voters who approved Ballot Initiative 71 by passing unnecessary legislation largely outlawing adult marijuana use in the District. The passage of the controversial measure occurred under unusual circumstances. Almost no notice of the markup of the controversial bill was provided. Notice was not provided to the public until only a few minutes before markup, and even Committee members received less than 24 hours’ notice of bill consideration, in violation of the Committee’sown rules. In a very rare move, remarked upon by other councilmembers, Council Chairman Phil Mendelson joined the committee for the markup and provided the swing vote to advance the bill.

The bill approved by the Committee would make permanent the current blanket ban on marijuana use in private clubs, which is set to expire on April 15th. The bill bars entities from providing adults with private spaces other than a residence to consume marijuana, and requires the Mayor’s office to revoke a business’ license after only one instance of a patron consuming marijuana on the premises.

As written the legislation is needlessly broad and expands the criminalization of marijuana consumption by adults, contrary to the will of District voters who resoundingly rejected marijuana criminalization.

Can California’s Cannabis ‘Nuns’ Save Medical Marijuana Despite Harassment and Local Bans?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Sister Kate and her apprentice Sister Darcy are not really nuns, but they do have a real mission—to grow and produce medical marijuana for those in need. They sell their products at moderate prices on Etsy, under the brand name Sisters of the Valley.

Kate, a 56-year-old Milwaukee native, spent a decade working in a business-related job in Amsterdam. After divorce and hard times hit, she decided to venture into an industry she knew about: pot.

But why the nun’s habit?

Kate told the Daily Beast that her nun persona came about when she decided to wear a habit to an Occupy protest, and people gravitated to her for advice and comfort and to ask for prayers. So she decided to keep it.

Congress Members Urge VA To Change Medical Marijuana Policy

In a letter to Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald released Wednesday, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senate and House members urged the Department of Veterans Affairs to allow VA doctors to write medical marijuana recommendations to veterans in accordance with state laws.

The letter comes four days before the expiration of a directive that prohibits VA doctors from recommending medical marijuana, even in states that have made it legal.

The Congressional members, led by Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Steve Daines (R-MT), and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) in the Senate and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Dina Titus (D-NV), and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) in the House, say the current policy “disincentivizes doctors and patients from being honest with each other,” noting, “It is not in the veterans’ best interest for the VA to interfere with the doctor-patient relationship.”

“Congress has taken initial steps to alleviate this conflict in law and we will continue to work toward this goal,” the senators and representatives wrote. “However, you are in a position to make this change when the current VHA directive expires at the end of this month. We ask that you act to ensure that our veterans’ access to care is not compromised and that doctors and patients are allowed to have honest discussions about treatment options.”
