Brazil: Supreme Court Justice Calls for Legalization of Cannabis and Cocaine

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

A justice who sits on Brazil’s highest court, the Supreme Federal Tribunal, has called for legalization of cannabis and cocaine to undercut the growing power of narco-gangs behind the wave of violence shaking South America’s largest nation. In comments picked up by Reuters, Justice Roberto Barroso, a Yale-educated jurist and professor of constitutional law, said that 50 years of drug war policies in Brazil have only fueled violence and bloated the country’s prison population and that time has come for an alternative.

“Unlike the United States and Europe where the problem lies in the impact drugs have on consumers, in Brazil, the problem lies in the power drug traffickers have over poor communities,” Barroso told reporters at the modernist high court building in Brasilia on Feb. 10. “I can assure you it is only a matter of time.

One of the options is being brought up for discussion by Rep. Jon Applebaum, says the Associated Press. He wants to see Minnesota marijuana regulated like alcohol, and have the tax revenue go to public school funding; like Colorado.

“It’s eventually going to happen,” the Democratic lawmaker told CBS Minnesota.

Cannabis Industry Shutdown Would Cause a Recession

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

If U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions decides to impose a lethal crackdown on legal marijuana states, industry leaders believe it would be catastrophic to Colorado’s economic prosperity.

During a recent interview with the Denver Channel, Kristi Kelly, executive director of the Marijuana Industry Group, said any decision by the Trump administration to launch a full-scale war against the legal cannabis industry would “cause a recession,” sending tens of thousands of Colorado workers to the unemployment line.

With the state now generating in upwards of $1 billion a year in legal marijuana sales, she said federal interference would have nothing less than devastating consequences.
