Georgia Lawmaker Wants to Put Medical Marijuana Up to Voters
While the Georgia legislature has done its best to avoid passing measures intended to create a functional medical marijuana program, one state lawmaker believes this reform would pass without incident if simply given the opportunity to go before the voters.
That’s why Representative Allen Peake, a man who is often considered the “Godfather of the Medical Marijuana Movement” in the state of Georgia, plans to introduce a piece of legislation in the coming weeks aimed at giving the voting public the ability to cast an opinion on the subject of marijuana reform.
The proposed referendum, which would be slated for the ballot in 2018, specifically intends to seal the argument on whether the state should allow cannabis to be grown throughout the state. As it stands, the current state law allows only certain patients to possess cannabis oil, but it also forces them to break Uncle Sam’s rules by smuggling it in from a legal state.
Indiana Marijuana Advocates Go to Court—Just for the Right to Protest
Thanks largely to Mike Pence, Indiana is a hard place to be gay and a hard place to be a woman. And while the Hoosier State is surrounded by states where cannabis is available to sick people, lawmakers in Indianapolis have been so intransigent on the issue that one man was led to literally walk across the state in an attempt to get them to change their minds.
Perhaps inspired by their governor, who is soon to be sworn in as vice-president, the leaders of one Indiana county wanted to go one step further—and declare their public buildings off-limits to any kind of free speech they didn’t approve.
Specifically, commissioners in Tippecanoe County wanted to bar marijuana activists from demonstrating on the steps of the county courthouse—but just marijuana activists, and just marijuana activists from Higher Ground, an organization that spent last year staging demonstrations in all 92 Indiana counties in support of legalizing medical marijuana.
