After California decriminalized marijuana, teen arrest, overdose and dropout rates fell

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 16th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-decriminalized-crime-and-more-dropsA new report from the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice adds to the growing body of evidence that legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana does not lead to any number of doomsday scenarios envisioned by legalization opponents. Looking specifically at California, where full marijuana decriminalization went into effect on Jan. 1, 2011, the report finds that "marijuana decriminalization in California has not resulted in harmful consequences for teenagers, such as increased crime, drug overdose, driving under the influence, or school dropout. In fact, California teenagers showed improvements in all risk areas after reform."
 
Most notable in the above table is the drop in school dropout rates. Recent studies have suggested links between heavy marijuana use and low school completion rates. But many experts question the direction of causality in this relationship, suggesting that there could be any number of confounding factors that account for this relationship. While it's still early in California's decriminalization experiment, the numbers above should suggest we cast a skeptical eye on claims of plummeting academic achievement in a post-legalization world.
 
In fact, as the report authors write: "By a variety of measures, California’s teenage behaviors actually improved dramatically after marijuana was effectively legalized — improvements that occurred more weakly or not at all among older Californians and among teenagers nationwide."
 
Now of course this doesn't address causality, and these numbers shouldn't be taken to imply that decriminalization caused these declines. But they do show, pretty clearly, that in the two years since full-scale decriminalization went into effect, California's kids are still all right. The sky hasn't fallen. And they add to a mounting body of research that shows, for instance:
 
that teen drug and alcohol use continues to fall, even as more states decriminalize marijuana and make it available for medical purposes;
that states with medical marijuana laws haven't seen any uptick in teen marijuana use;
that states with medical marijuana have actually seen decreases in prescription drug overdoses;
that Alaska, where personal marijuana use has been de facto legalized for nearly 40 years, is completely average on a variety of economic and demographic indicators;
and that traffic fatalities have fallen in Colorado since legalization there.
By contrast, there is little evidence of increased social harms in states where marijuana has been decriminalized. The one credible study I'm aware of is a DEA report finding that more Colorado drivers involved in car crashes are testing positive for marijuana use. But a bucket of salt is needed here: unlike alcohol, inactive marijuana metabolites remain in the body long after consumption - days or weeks, depending on frequency of use. But the presence of metabolites doesn't necessarily indicate you were high at the time of the test - only that you got high some time in the days or weeks prior.

Oregon Marijuana Legalization Winning In Latest Poll, Young Voter Turnout Is Vital

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, October, 16th 2014 by THCFinder
oregon-mj-legalization-winningA new poll was released in Oregon which shows the marijuana legalization initiative, Measure 91, winning by a significant margin. Support is highest among young voters and independents. Per Oregon Public Broadcasting:
 
Fifty-two percent of likely voters said they’d vote for the idea. Forty-one percent said they’d vote against it.
 
Debra Klaviter lives in The Dalles and has run a Farmers Insurance Agency for 25 years. She says she’ll be voting for the marijuana legalization measure because she says it should be an option for people in pain.
 
“I’ve seen people that have started to take care of their own health care, their own pain management, and how the system works for them. Oh my gracious, there’s no question that it should be legalized,” Klaviter said.
 
Some who oppose the measure say it would allow people to possess too much pot at one time, and in forms that might appeal to children.
 
The poll has a margin of error of 4.3 percent.  About seven percent of respondents haven’t decided how they’ll vote on Measure 91. That means the measure’s passage is still up for grabs.
 
Pollster John Horvick of Portland-based DHM research says turn-out will be key.
 
“For example, 18 to 34 year-olds, 70 percent plan to vote for Measure 91 for legalization.  Sixty-eight percent of independents plan to. Now those are all groups who are the least likely to show-up come election day. So if the marijuana campaign is able to get those voters out, it looks like it could pass, it’ll be close, a squeaker.”
 
I look at this blog’s traffic stats and demographics everyday. I know that we have received well over 600,000 visitors to this blog from Oregon, and that about 75% of those visitors were between 18-34 years old. I don’t know the political party affiliations of those visitors, but I’d imagine a great percentage of them are independents. So for the love of marijuana reform, VOTE! Tell everyone else that you know to VOTE. We will only legalize marijuana in my home state if you guys get off your butts, and turn in your ballots. Oregon is a vote by mail state, so it’s not even that hard. Watch for your ballot, fill it out, and turn it in. Marijuana reform is relying on you!

Denver considers banning home production of butane hash oil

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 16th 2014 by THCFinder
hash-oil-production-banned-in-denverA Denver City Council committee Tuesday delayed proposed restrictions on home hash oil production so that they could be amended to accommodate residents who use an alcohol-based process.
 
Several people argued for the change to the Safety and Well-Being Committee, including the father of a little girl who depends on cannabis oil to treat her severe epilepsy. The committee will resume the discussion on the proposed ordinance and could vote Oct. 16 on whether to send it to the full council.
 
The proposal would ban the amateur use of butane or other gases in extractions of oil from marijuana. That’s resulted in dozens of home explosions statewide this year. Licensed businesses still could use that process, but people who make hash oil at home would have to use safer water- and food-based methods.
 
Brian Wilson, whose family moved from New Jersey to Denver earlier this year so his 3-year-old daughter Vivian could use medical marijuana treatments, said neither of those methods would produce the kind of oil suitable for her. He uses an ethanol-based extraction process.
 
“I didn’t move out here to put her more at risk,” Wilson said.
 
Denver Fire Chief Eric Tade told the committee that the proposal likely could be amended to allow alcohol-based methods, with limits on use of heat and amount of alcohol to keep it safe.
