Public Hearing For Vermont Marijuana Legalization Coming Up

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, November, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
vermont-mj-legalization-coming-soonVermont is on my list of states that could potentially legalize marijuana via the Legislature between now and 2016. So far, no state has ever legalized marijuana via its legislature, only via a citizen’s initiative. The RAND Corporation has been conducting a study on what marijuana legalization would look like in Vermont, and there is a public hearing scheduled for next week to discuss the issue. Via The Joint Blog:
 
Vermont Governor Peter Schumlin’s administration has announced that they’ll be holding a public hearing on November 12th as part of the state’s continuing examination of cannabis legalization.
 
According to a press release sent out by the administration, the hearing will “provide Vermonters with the ability to contribute comments for a legislatively-mandated study on the issues involved with possible legalization of marijuana production, distribution and possession in the State of Vermont.”
 
RAND’s Co-Director Beau Kilmer will be in attendance at the November 12th public hearing. The hearing is scheduled to take place from 3:30PM to 5:30PM, which can be watched via Vermont Interactive Technologies centers around the state. I’m very curious to see what is said at the hearing, especially from the public. With there now being four states with legalization on the books, along with Washington D.C., momentum has never been greater for reform.

Congress should allow D.C.'s marijuana legalization to stand

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, November, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
dc-mj-legalizationD.C. VOTERS, as expected, gave overwhelming approval to a ballot initiative that would legalize marijuana and, as expected, there were immediate rumblings from Capitol Hill of plans to block its implementation. We did not favor passage of Initiative 71, but we do believe in democracy and self-government. Congress should recognize how inappropriate it would be to interfere with the District on this local issue.
 
Within hours of Tuesday’s passage of a measure that would make it permissible for adults in the District to possess as much as 2 ounces of marijuana, Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) signaled his interest in preventing the law from going into effect. “I will consider using all resources available to a member of Congress to stop this action,” said Mr. Harris, who previously tried to upend the District’s decriminalization of marijuana. Mr. Harris said his interest stems from concerns about the possible impact of legalization on adolescent drug use, yet he has shown little interest in the welfare of teenagers who reside in states that have moved to legalize the drug.
 
The District, because of its unique relation to Congress, is an easy stalking horse for members to advance agendas that would be unpalatable in most jurisdictions. And the Democratic-majority city’s always-tenuous relationship with the Hill became even more precarious with the Republican sweep of the midterm elections.
 
There are, nonetheless, some hopeful signs that Congress might respect D.C. rights on this matter. The GOP-controlled House went on record this year as opposing the use of funds to prevent states from implementing laws that authorize the use, distribution and possession of medical marijuana. Rand Paul (Ky.), the ranking Republican on the Senate committee with oversight of the District, has said that D.C. voters, not Congress, should decide this issue. “I’m not for having the federal government get involved,” he told Roll Call.

Will Ohio pass marijuana legalization laws?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, November, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
will-ohio-pass-marijuana-lawsTuesday's election broadened marijuana legalization laws in some states, making it easier to get and even grow.
 
Pot is still illegal in Ohio but there is a growing number of people approve of it for medicinal purposes and there may come a day when you're asked to vote on it.
 
More marijuana shops will be popping up across the country, and as more states decriminalize marijuana, Ohio may be positioned to make it legal here according to marijuana advocates.
 
Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Four states now legalized it for recreational use.
 
Alaska and Oregon approved it in Tuesday's election. District of Columbia voters overwhelmingly approved legalizing recreational-purpose marijuana that will be subject to Congressional review.
 
All of these moves give hope to the Ohio Rights Group, an organization that is trying to get marijuana legalized in Ohio.
 
ORG currently has one hundred thousand signatures but needs 385,000 to get it on the Ohio ballot. Pardee thinks that it could happen by next years election because he says public opinion is changing.
 
Theresa Daniello believes in the science behind the endocannabinoid system, a part of the brain that affects both the nervous system and organs. She says it's why medical marijuana is thought to help so many different health problems. And Daniello has personal experience.
 
It's also why she dedicates her life to educating healthcare professionals and lobbies to get compassionate use legislation passed in Ohio. She represents 45 families of children with devastating seizure disorders. Such as Dravet Syndrome, a condition that causes children to experience several potentially deadly seizures daily.
 
Many parents are moving to legal states like Colorado to access cannabis oil, or CBD, because in some cases it reduces the seizures. Daniello thinks parents should not have to leave the state to get medicine.
 
She also believes Ohio is primed to consider legalization, at least medicinally. Some people see that as a potential economic benefit.
 
Voters in Oregon, Alaska and Washington, D.C., legalized recreational marijuana Tuesday. But without the support of the U.S. Congress, any of the new, voter-approved pot shops may not be able to survive a drug war-era tax code that already threatens many businesses in Colorado and Washington state. That means some of the profits may go up in smoke.
