Judge: Feds Cannot Block Dispensaries Operating Within State Law

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, October, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

In a landmark decision that carries potential ramifications nationwide, a federal judge ruled Monday that the federal government does not have the authority to block the operations of medical marijuana clubs operating within state law. The decision marks a victory for Lynette Shaw, a medical cannabis pioneer who opened the nation’s first state-sanctioned dispensary in 1996. The dispensary, the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, was in operation in Fairfax, California until it was shut down by the feds in 2011. Today’s decision comes in light of a 2014 amendment proposed by representatives Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Sam Farr (D-CA), which prohibited the Department of Justice prosecuting those operating within compliance with the state’s rules for medical marijuana. The recent ruling represents a broad interpretation of theRohrabacher-Farr Amendment, a piece of legislation designed to ensure that the federal government does not expend resources prosecuting medical marijuana dispensaries operating within the parameters of their state.

The ruling, which lifts the injunction against the medical marijuana club, has been called a “tipping point” by Shaw’s attorney Greg Anton and comes from the same judge who granted the permanent injunction against Shaw in 2002.

According to multiple media reports the Liberal Party in Canada appears to have won a strong plurality of seats, and maybe even a majority, in the federal elections that are wrapping up across Canada right now. Justin Trudeau, party leader for the Liberal Party, has been projected as the next Prime Minister of Canada. If the math stays true, this could be a HUGE victory for marijuana reform efforts in Canada. Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party has stated many times that it will make marijuana legalization a priority. They recently released the following press release outlining the party’s policy position on marijuana:

We will legalize, regulate, and restrict access to marijuana.

Canada’s current system of marijuana prohibition does not work. It does not prevent young people from using marijuana and too many Canadians end up with criminal records for possessing small amounts of the drug.

Arresting and prosecuting these offenses is expensive for our criminal justice system. It traps too many Canadians in the criminal justice system for minor, non-violent offenses. At the same time, the proceeds from the illegal drug trade support organized crime and greater threats to public safety, like human trafficking and hard drugs.

To ensure that we keep marijuana out of the hands of children, and the profits out of the hands of criminals, we will legalize, regulate, and restrict access to marijuana.

Richard Branson Leaks UN Document Calling for Decriminalization of All Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

British entrepreneur and outspoken billionaire, Richard Branson claims that the United Nations is on the verge of calling for decriminalization of all drugs. 

In a post on his Virgin website, titled "Finally—a change in course on drug policy," Branson leaked an embargoed, unreleased statement from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), calling on governments to decriminalize drug use and possession for personal consumption of all drugs. 

"My colleagues on the Global Commission on Drug Policy and I could not be more delighted, as I have stated in embargoed interviews for the likes of the BBC," Branson wrote. "Together with countless other tireless advocates, I’ve for years argued that we should treat drug use as a health issue, not as a crime. While the vast majority of recreational drug users never experience any problems, people who struggle with drug addiction deserve access to treatment, not a prison cell."

Unfortunately, hours after Branson published his post, the BBC reported that the UNODC has withdrawn the paper after "pressure from at least one country."
