Activists: "Texas Getting Closer To Legalizing Marijuana"
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, June, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Some optimistic activists say new FBI crime statistics will push Texas closer to legalizing marijuana.
According to Mason Tvert, with the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), investigators are wasting millions of dollars going after casual users. “There is no logical reason why law enforcement officials should be spending their time arresting and prosecuting adults simply for possessing a product that is objectively less harmful than alcohol,” he said.
Tvert also pointed to new crime statistics that show African Americans, while only making up about 12-percent of the state’s population, are arrested far more than Whites for marijuana possession.
“It is the 15th highest arrest rate and right now Black Americans are being arrested at more than twice the rate as White,” he said, adding, “Communities of color are really facing the most enforcement despite the fact that they use marijuana at the same rate as whites.”
According to the MPP, marijuana prohibition costs U.S. taxpayers $41.8 billion per year. Tvert said that shows law enforcement isn’t prioritizing when it comes to crime fighting. “We are spending our law enforcement resources arresting adults for marijuana, when we could be using those resources to address serious crime,” he said.
Tvert said the statistics on things like the use of tax dollars and disproportionate arrests by race show how wrong the current marijuana policy is and also demonstrates why Texas should legalize pot.

Medical Marijuana Bill Wins in the New York State Assembly
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
On Monday, a bill that would allow medical marijuana use sailed through the New York State Assembly, passing with a clean 95-38. If the bill makes it through the Senate, folks with "severely debilitating or life-threatening conditions" could be prescribed pot by their doctors.
Yesterday's Assembly session heard many compelling arguments for medical marijuana--one of which came from Assemblywoman Deb Glick (D), who shared a story of her sister's chemotherapy treatment. But an unexpected anecdote also came from Assemblyman Richard Gottfried (D), a co-sponsor of the bill, who argued that marijuana wasn't similar to other criminalized drugs in that it was "one of the most benign, clinically active substances known to humanity."
"Nothing is completely safe--I wouldn't say that about marijuana or anything else," Gottfried added. "President Bush almost choked to death tossing pretzels in his mouth."
So there you have it. Too much of a good thing--including pretzels and pot--is a bad idea. But isn't one perhaps more likely to choke on a pretzel if one is dangerously high? Just kidding, Assembly. You do us proud.
