New Poll Finds 65% In Florida Support Medical Marijuana Initiative

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
florida-mmjA new poll released Wednesday from Public Policy Polling has found that 65% of voters in Florida would support a ballot measure legalizing medical cannabis; considering they are almost certain to have such a measure on this November’s ballot, these high approval ratings may offer a promising prediction of Florida’s near future.
 
Participants were asked, “Would you support or oppose a ballot initiative allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes?”, and offered a simple choice: “Support”, “Oppose” or “Not sure”. While 12% responded that they were unsure, a clear majority were in favor: “Though marijuana possession is still criminalized in Florida, voters overwhelmingly support legalizing its use for medical purposes (65/23). Even 50% of Republicans support the medical marijuana initiative, with numbers highest among Independents (77/9)”, according to Public Policy Polling.
 
Even those who identified as “very conservative”, the group voicing the strongest opposition, polled at just 50% opposed, with 40% in favor and 10% unsure.
 
United for Care, the organization behind the initiative to legalize medical cannabis in Florida, recently submitted over 1 million signatures to put the measure to a vote this year (with just under 700,000 being required to put the issue to a vote); once validated, the initiative will be secured on this November’s ballot (pending a review by the Supreme Court).
 
The medical cannabis initiative Floridians may be voting on this year is a constitutional amendment, so it requires a 60% majority – but with months to educate the public and build even more support, 65% in favor this early on bodes well for its chance of passage.

East Coast Dominos

I know that I constantly bring up the east coast/west coast battle and the absurdness of it. Unfortunately it is a huge divide in the cannabis community. The elitist California attitude is ultimately frustrating, especially since we're all supposed to get along. Everywhere can have good weed and everywhere can have bad weed. It just depends on who you know. But while California may still be basking in it's head start, officials believe that the east coast is going to enter the cannabis industry extremely fast, following the Colorado/Washington standard of marijuana.
 
Former Long Island Representative, Patrick Kennedy, is one of the nation's most driven anti-cannabis supporters and is making claims that "legalization of marijuana is moving fast in parts of the US and it looks as though the domino effect could quickly move towards other states such as Vermont". How could states resist the allure of such stacks of money? With the potential of such great gain, a lot of states are rethinking their laws regarding the plant, in order to hopefully make the same amount of revenue that Colorado is making.
 
What it comes down to is that the east coast is right on the west coast's coattails. The measures all face some serious odds. Since politics are all about popularity, a lot of politicians think that allowing such a measure to pass would reflect them as being easily swayed and supporting a nation of pot smoking people... Doesn't really sound like such a bad thing, does it? Of course, politicians are continuing to use the same airy arguments, like marijuana is a gateway to harder substances and that it's the wrong message to send young people.
 
Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin says that they just want to get drug dealers out of the state, leaving the marijuana market to be controlled by the government. Of course, the idea the legalizing will completely eliminate the black market is a shifty one, seeing as how the marijuana tax is so high. If dealers have lower prices than the clinics, there is a strong chance that people will continue to buy from street dealers. At least the east coast is getting somewhere. We will hopefully see more states continue to rethink their laws as marijuana gathers support.

Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-can-help-prevent-suicideOne of the arguments against marijuana is that it may contribute to depression and suicide. Anti-pot smokers like to argue that stoners are seriously lazy and depressed but unfortunately for them, a study from Germany has been released saying that places where marijuana laws are lax and the plant is well loved, rates of suicide have actually decreased, rather than increase. Since suicide is most often caused by stress and marijuana takes away stress, it definitely makes sense that cannabis would allow people to release their stress, causing a drop in suicide rates.
 
California supplies anxiety patients with medical cards and both Delaware and New Mexico have PTSD listed on their lists of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. In these areas, there's been a 5% reduction in suicide rates, especially in males age 20-29, according to this study. The results suggest that since those that use marijuana drink considerably less alcohol, which is a serious depressant. If stoners drink less, that would also mean that the amount of drunk driving accidents may decrease in these areas as well and that the benefits aren't just restricted to those suffering from depression.
 
Most subjects tested were male, since females are four times less likely to commit suicide and succeed, according to researchers. The bottom line of this study? Legalizing marijuana leads to an improvement in the mental well being of most young adult males, resulting in fewer suicides. So the next time that some tries to tell you that cannabis promotes depression and suicide, just remember that depression and suicide are caused by stress. Marijuana is used as a treatment for both of those illnesses so it only makes sense that places with lax cannabis laws would have lower rates of suicide.
