Urge D.C. Judiciary Committee To Improve Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

washington dc decriminalization marijuana possessionI received the following alert out of DC:

While D.C. has an effective medical marijuana program, there is still room for improvement. Two bills are pending to do just that, but they’re stalled in the Judiciary Committee. Click here to urge all the Judiciary Committee members to make sure these bills move forward NOW.

B21-192 would require lab testing so that patients know what they are getting and that their medicine is free of contaminants, while B21-210 would allow reciprocity for out-of-state patients and remove the arbitrary cap on the number of plants a cultivation center can grow, alleviating shortages and driving down prices.

Unfortunately, Judiciary Committee Chairman McDuffie has not scheduled either bill for a hearing or vote, although one of the bills has been before the committee for seven months. Other members of the committee also have the authority to request that the bills be considered at a special meeting. Please ask your council members to support these bills and expand compassionate access to D.C.’s program.

Colorado Prosecutor Says Legal Marijuana Causes Majority of State’s Murders

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

While many Colorado officials have come forward over the past few months to declare that legal weed is working better than they ever imagined, some prosecutors across the state believe the legal cannabis industry is responsible for the majority of the state’s murders.

In a recent interview with Fox 31 Denver, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler said nearly two-thirds of the homicide cases he has overseen in recent years have had a blatant connection to marijuana. This uprising in murder, he said, could be traced back to a legion of small time dope dealers who are slinging the herb on the street with rabid enthusiasm because legal weed has made it easier for the black market to thrive.

New Poll Shows 69% Of Florida Voters Support Medical Marijuana Initiative

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

united for care florida amendment 2 medical marijuanaThis November Florida voters will see Amendment 2 on the ballot for the second straight election cycle. As in 2014, Amendment 2 would legalize medical marijuana in Florida. The 2014 effort was defeated by just two percentage points. This election cycle’s initiative has been tweaked and improved, and the campaign team is working hard to not let the 2014 result happen again. A poll was recently released by Gravis Marketing which found the following in regards to support for the initiative:

The Gravis survey asked all voters that participated in this poll; ‘If you were to vote today, would you vote for or against this constitutional amendment?’ 69 percent of those asked indicated that they would vote for the amendment, 23 percent stated they would vote against the amendment while eight percent were unsure.

“Another surprise in this poll shows the rapid changing of the voting segments opinion on medical marijuana,” concluded Gravis Marketing President Doug Kaplan. “One year ago when we asked a similar question, the state constitution measure was in danger of failing, as less than 60 percent of those polled would vote for it. Today, it appears that this ballot initiative is fairly on it’s way of passing. It’s amazing to see how much the public sentiment  has changed in the last 8 years.”
