Time to Legalize Cannabis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, June, 15th 2013 by THCFinder

Legalize-it

In the famous words of Peter Tosh, “legalize it, don’t criticize it, legalize it and I will advertise it.”

The marijuana industry is one that is becoming undeniably profitable and marketable. As activists and anti-prohibition legislatures have been doing their best to decriminalize our beloved cannabis plant, the war on drugs might be finally making some positive changes within the next decade, or so we hope. The many medical and industrial applications are enough to change the world. In 2006, a statement was released that marijuana is the number one cash crop above soybeans, hay and corn. The United States annual domestic cannabis revenue is $36,803,591,000.00. In addition to the amount of money cannabis rakes in every year, it is a plant that can be completely utilized, stalk, leaf, flower, and seed. The stalk is where the fibrous material of hemp is extracted and can be used for apparel, rope, canvas, paper, insulation, mulch and many other products. The leaves and flowers are where the majority of the THC is held and are generally used for consumption, recreationally and medicinally, through smoking, vaporizing, oils, and butter, just to name a few. The seed is probably one of the most diverse parts of the cannabis plant. Aside from the obvious function of procreation, the seeds can be used to produce animal feed and birdseed, soap, hair product, lotions, cosmetics, balms, varnishes, ink, fuel, solvents, lubricants, putty, cooking oils, vitamins and many other various types of helpful items.

In a statement issued in 2012, studies have shown that the United States is populated by almost 313 million people. Of that population, 10% or 32.7 million people, have been reported as using cannabis regularly. The true number is likely more than 10%. Every 36 seconds, a marijuana related arrest occurs in the United States and billions of dollars are wasted every year on these incarcerations as well as these arrests. With all of these statistics and figures being thrown at us almost daily from both sides of the war, it is not surprising that many just choose to remain apathetic and simply hope for the best. This approach has gotten us nowhere fast. If you are a cannabis user and believe in the magic of marijuana, then get up, stand up and don’t give up the fight.

Judging From Prosecutions, Obama Is 80 Percent Worse Than Bush on Medical Marijuana

Category: Politics | Posted on Sat, June, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
bush-vs-obamaAccording to a new report from California NORML, "over 335 defendants have been charged with federal crimes related to medical marijuana in states with medical marijuana laws." Despite Barack Obama's promises of prosecutorial restraint in this area, "153 medical marijuana cases have been brought in the 4¼ years of the Obama administration, nearly as many as under the 8 years of the Bush administration (163)." In other words, Obama is averaging 36 medical marijuana prosecutions a year, compared to 20 a year under his predecessor. And although Attorney General Eric Holder has repeatedly claimed the Justice Department is not targeting suppliers who comply with state law, "the DOJ has targeted many facilities that were in full compliance with local laws and regulations."
 
California NORMLThe overwhelming majority of these cases, 259, involve California dispensaries. California NORML also counts at least 31 cases in Montana, 15 in Nevada, 12 in Michigan, 10 in Washington, six in Oregon, and two in Colorado. Nine out of 10 cases concluded so far have resulted in convictions, with 158 defendants receiving prison sentences totaling more than 480 years. About 50 are in federal prison right now, while others await sentencing or have been sentenced but have not begun serving their time yet.
 
Yesterday Americans for Safe Access released a report that puts the price tag for these prosecutions at $500 million. "Far outspending all of his predecessors," it says, "President Obama has dedicated nearly $300 million to such enforcement efforts, despite his repeated pledges to not use Justice Department funds in this way."
