DEA Cracks Down on Colorado Marijuana Doctors

Category: News | Posted on Sun, February, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

America’s doctors can’t live without drugs. Physicians bending to pressure from pharmaceutical companies and over-prescribing opiate-based pain pills is accepted as one of the root causes of the heroin and opiate overdose epidemic, yet doctors still hand out anything that will fit in an orange bottle with a label to anyone who asks.

Just ask doctors, who admit they hand out antibiotics when it will do no good, oftentimes to fulfill expectations from patients who want something more (read: a pill) than being told to go home and rest (or clean up their diets and exercise).

Whether it’s pressure from patients or from pharmaceutical companies is beside the point. Primary-care physicians can’t survive without drugs, which is why when the DEA revokes a doctor’s ability to hand out pills, their economic livelihood is at risk.

This week, the DEA revoked the licenses to prescribe for two Colorado physicians. As the Denver Post reported, the DEA suspension is a formality, as the doctors, Gentry Dunlop and Janet Dean, have both had their state licenses to practice medicine yanked by the state.

Category: News | Posted on Sun, February, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

After much deliberation, the U.S. Senate confirmed anti-marijuana candidate Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, Wednesday with a vote of 52-47.

“I can’t express how appreciative I am for those of you who stood by me during this difficult time”, said Sessions, “By your vote tonight I have been given a real challenge. I’ll do my best to be worthy of it.”

The anti-marijuana Republican Senator from Alabama has a volatile past with cannabis reform, as the staunch conservative has been known to support anti-marijuana rhetoric, and the drug war during his time in office under the Reagan administration.

Newly Introduced Legislation Would End Federal Marijuana Prohibition

Category: News | Posted on Sun, February, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

While it remains uncertain whether newly confirmed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to unleash the hounds on the high times currently being enjoyed in legal marijuana states, one federal lawmaker is doing his part to ensure the Trump administration has no control over any jurisdiction that has legalized marijuana in their neck of the woods.

On Tuesday, Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher of California submitted a piece of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives aimed at preventing the federal government from cracking down on states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use. The bill, which is aptly entitled the “Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2017,” would provide the cannabis community with immunity from federal prosecution as long as they remain in compliance with state law.

Although the bill (H.R. 975) would not force Congress to end prohibition in a manner that would allow pot to be taxed and regulated nationwide similar to beer, it would amend the Controlled Substances Act in such a way that state legalization could carry on without the threat of federal interference.
