Lawmakers in Uruguay Vote to Legalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, August, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
legalized-mj-in-uruguayRIO DE JANEIRO — Uruguay’s lower house late Wednesday night approved a sweeping bill to legalize marijuana, opening the way for the authorities to create one of Latin America’s most ambitious nationwide endeavors in overhauling drug policy.
 
Following hours of debate, legislators in Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, voted 50 to 46 in favor of the legislation, which now goes to the Senate, where lawmakers have assured President José Mujica that they have a comfortable majority to approve it. Mr. Mujica supports the bill, arguing that it is needed to redirect police resources toward fighting street crime and smugglers involved in trafficking other types of drugs.
 
“This is a very innovative bill, with the state deciding to regulate the entire chain of production, distribution and access to the substance,” said Laura Blanco, president of Uruguay’s Cannabis Studies Association. She said the bill sent an “encouraging” sign to other Latin American nations, as political leaders in parts of the region debate whether to follow Uruguay’s example.

Nevadans won't consider marijuana legalization measure until 2016

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, August, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
nv-mj-legalizationARSON CITY — Nevada tokers won’t get a chance before the November 2016 election to join their friends in Colorado and Washington and vote to legalize the recreational use of marijuana by adults.
 
Mason Tvert, communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project in Denver, said the potential lack of campaign funds likely will prevent his organization from launching a petition drive to put a marijuana legalization ballot question before voters next year. By waiting until 2016, he said the organization believes there is even a greater likelihood that voters will back legal marijuana.
 
Still Tvert predicted a ballot question to treat marijuana like alcohol would pass if it were on next year’s ballot. He pointed to a poll his organization commissioned earlier this year that found 54 percent of Nevadans support legalizing marijuana.
 
Until the passage of marijuana legalization measures in Colorado and Washington in November, Nevada had been the state that the Marijuana Policy Project eyed as the first that would legalize marijuana.
 
The organization secured 39 percent of the vote in 2002 when it first put before state voters a proposal to legalize marijuana for adults. It tried again in 2006, and 44 percent of voters backed legal marijuana.
 
Gathering petitions and fending off legal challenges can cost more than $1 million.
 
“Given the costs, is it worth trying in 2014 and getting 49.9 percent of the votes when if we wait until 2016 and get well over 50 percent?” asked Tvert, who worked on the campaign in Colorado last year.
 
He expects that by 2017 as many as seven states will have legal marijuana. Rhode Island, Alaska, Maryland and Hawaii could be the next states legalizing pot, he added.
 
“We are seeing growing public support,” Tvert said.

Push is on for medical marijuana in Florida

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-floriday-push-continuesThe push to legalize medical marijuana is gaining support in Florida and across the country.  
 
And one of the biggest legal names in Florida is among those leading the efforts. If well-known attorney John Morgan gets his way, Florida voters will get to decide whether to legalize medical marijuana.
Right now, medical marijuana users risk going to jail in Florida.
 
Bob Jordan, the husband of a marijuana user said, "We know it's an uphill battle, but it's a battle worth fighting."
 
Jordan said marijuana saved his wife Cathy's life. She has been battling ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease) since 1991.
 
Both she and her husband believe she has survived for more than two decades because she smokes marijuana.
 
"She has medical necessity. She has to use it," Bob Jordan said. "There's nothing else out there that works. We've proven that. So they're saying they agree with her on using it, but you can't buy it or grow it."
 
It's that Catch 22 that has lawyers like Morgan pushing legislators to put the legalization of medical marijuana on the November 2014 ballot. He takes his pot fight to a political forum in Tallahassee on Thursday, but he says it is an uphill battle.
 
"I mean you can't even get a hearing in Tallahassee," Morgan said. "They were having hearings on everything else, but not on this."
 
And although the Jordans support the idea, for Cathy, 2014 could be too late.
 
"I am very grateful that this is gonna happen," she said. "But I'm really hoping that the current House and Senate will work with us and get it done this year."
