Don't Fire California Teachers for Private Marijuana Use

ROLE MODELS ARE HUMANS TOO - The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Behind a veiled claim of protecting the public, collateral sanctions continue to be heaped upon those arrested for using drugs. While these policies may be well intentioned, they are creating an inter-generational chain reaction that unjustly impacts entire communities for decades to come. 
 
Every time a well-intentioned lawmaker adds another collateral sanction or lifetime punishment for a drug violation, they advance the New Jim Crow (the impetus for segregation), and further arm the drug war, which has had a disproportionate impact on Black and Latino communities. 
 
Such is the case of AB 375 by Joan Buchanan, Democrat of Livermore, California. In the main, it's a good bill, making it easier to suspend or fire teachers who are charged with or convicted of sex offenses, or other serious misconduct. However, it also includes provisions to make it easier to drum a teacher out of his or her job for low level drug offenses, including using marijuana on their own time, away from school, or growing or using marijuana recommended by their doctor. 
 
While it is not the intent of this bill to disqualify greater numbers of Black and Latino teachers than whites that is its likely effect. In 2010, the arrest rate for marijuana misdemeanors per 100,000 persons varied greatly by race: Black: 473 per 100,000; Latino: 169; White: 142; Asian: 65. 
 
Policies that deny college funding, business and contractors licenses, deny food stamps and other public assistance such as healthcare and housing, and even remove the right to vote, based on a nonviolent drug conviction, further disenfranchise Black and Latino communities, building a permanent underclass of untouchables. 
 
But it doesn't stop there. As an unintended consequence of the effort to destroy the lives and abilities for success among those who use drugs, policymakers are systematically removing the mentors of the next generation and quashing the examples they might have set for today's youth. 
 
To be clear, teachers can already be dismissed for being intoxicated on the job, or if their use involves a minor. These are policies that Drug Policy Alliance wholeheartedly supports. However, AB 375 would police the private lives of teachers and make dismissal a reality for behavior conducted on their own time, including cultivating or using marijuana for personal medical use. 
 
Whenever the punishments for drug arrests or drug convictions are widened, as is the case in this bill, the lifetime collateral consequences fall hardest on people of color, their families and communities.

Retail marijuana labels in Colorado will have to include potency, expiration dates, safety warning

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
lab-tested-mjDENVER - Colorado has announced detailed rules for how recreational pot should be grown and sold starting next year.
 
The state department that will regulate marijuana released more than 60 pages of rules Monday for how marijuana sales will be licensed and regulated. The Colorado Legislature set broad parameters earlier this year, but the nitty-gritty rules were left to the Department of Revenue.
 
The voter-approved marijuana legalization measure adopted last year required the department to release rules by July 1. Retail sales don't start until January, and the newly released rules don't apply to medical pot shops.
 
The rules require labels to include potency, expiration dates, and a disclaimer that pot isn't legal outside Colorado and hasn't been safety-tested.
