The End Of Federal Marijuana Prohibition May Be Only Five Years Away

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, December, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

Rob Kampia thinks so, and he’s a very well-placed observer. As head of theMarijuana Policy Project, Kampia has his finger on the pulse of pot politics as well as anyone, and he made a pretty startling prediction at the International Drug Reform Conference in suburban Washington last month.

At a panel on “Marijuana Reform in Congress,” Kampia suggested that a handful of state-level marijuana legalization victories next year is going to set in motion a congressional debate on legalization that could see an end to federal marijuana prohibition before the end of the decade.

Legalization campaigns are already well-advanced in Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada, and while getting on the ballot is no guarantee of victory next November, polling so far suggests that most of them will win. And next year could also be the year the first state, and even perhaps a second, legalizes it through the legislative process.

Kampia said, “Vermont is most likely to legalize through the legislature, and Rhode Island has a good shot, but those are the only two states in play.”

But then there are the initiative states.

“It could be that four or five initiative states legalize it, and then all of this is facing Congress in 2017,” Kampia continued. “Then there will be a vigorous debate on legalization, and then, I predict, Congress could pass the states’ rights bill in 2019.”

Senator Boots Veteran Out Of Committee On Marijuana Proposal

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

ptsd second amendment military veteran cannabis marijuanaDuring the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 8, Senator Jones ejected from the Chamber an Iraq War veteran who was there to plead on behalf of soldiers for reasonable medical marijuana laws.

Watch the video- it is disturbing to see.

Senator Jones, the much-maligned former small town Sheriff who reportedly loves to say, “I’m Rick Jones, bitch!”, took offense to Marine veteran Dakota Serna calling Sheriff Deputies “jack boots” and “thugs”. His response was a quick gavel, a shouting match and a final declaration of disrespect.

During one exchange Serna said, ”I fought for my right to testify, for free speech, and you are denying it.”

Sen. Jones answered, “That’s it. Goodnight.”

Serna refused to leave until guards told him the proceedings would be shut down- and patient testimony halted- if he did not leave the chamber as ordered by Sen. Jones.

Vermont Medical School Delves Into Marijuana Science

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, December, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- As more states allow for the use of medical marijuana, the University of Vermont is offering a course in the science of the drug - and the professors say they are challenged by a lack of research on what has long been a taboo topic.

Other institutions have offered classes in marijuana law and policy, but the university's medical school is likely the country's first to offer a full course on medical cannabis, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges and Universities. Other medical schools have touched on the topic.

"What we're trying to do with this course is to sort of demystify this whole subject matter, to try to treat this like any other drug, like alcohol or amphetamines or opioids," said Vermont pharmacology professor Wolfgang Dostmann. "Just demystify the whole thing and say what it is, what is going on with it, how does it work."

Twenty three-states, including Vermont, allow the use of medical cannabis for a range of conditions or symptoms from glaucoma to HIV and cancer, although the drug is still illegal under federal law.
