Strong Majority Of Likely Denver Voters Support Limited Social Marijuana Use

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana jointA strong majority of likely 2015 voters in Denver support a proposed city initiative that would allow the limited social use of marijuana in commercial establishments that choose to allow it, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday.

Fifty-six percent said they support the measure, which would allow the use — but not sale — of cannabis in areas restricted to individuals 21 years of age and older. Just 40% said they are opposed.

“Denver voters have repeatedly voted in favor of treating marijuana similarly to alcohol,” said initiative proponent Mason Tvert, who co-directed the 2012 Amendment 64 campaign in Colorado. “For the same reasons many adults enjoy having a drink in a social setting, many adults would enjoy using cannabis.

“Adults visiting Denver who can legally purchase cannabis need somewhere to go to consume it,” Tvert said. “The goal here is to reduce the likelihood of marijuana being used on the street and in other public areas.”

Under the proposed measure, businesses that have a license to sell alcohol for onsite consumption would be able to decide whether to allow cannabis consumption on the premises. Businesses that choose to allow only cannabis consumption (without licensed alcohol consumption) would be subject to regulation by the city, including restrictions on location and hours of operation. All commercial establishments that allow adults to use marijuana would be required to comply with the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act.

New Senate Bill To Let Marijuana Dispensaries Finally Access Banks

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

A new bill introduced into the U.S. Senate aims to offer protection for financial institutions that want to conduct business with marijuana dispensaries.

Since marijuana is still a Schedule I drug, banks have been incredibly reluctant to enter into business relations for fear of running afoul of federal regulators and laws concerning money laundering, Marijuana.com reports.

Support for marijuana continues to build in Congress. Four states and the District of Columbia have legalized the drug, and this legislation, backed by the Senate delegations from Oregon and Washington, would prohibit regulators from cracking down on banks in the form of terminated FDIC insurance, asset seizure and prosecution for money laundering. The Marijuana Businesses Access to Banking Act also prevents prosecutors from joining into the fray, so long as industry complies with state law.

Texas Town Pushes for Marijuana Legalization to Combat Cartel Traffic

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, July, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

The quiet border town of El Paso has reportedly become a trailblazer in the effort to reform marijuana laws in Texas. 

According to the Guardian, El Paso's proximity to Ciudad Juárez—"the Mexican city so ravaged by drug cartel violence that until recently it was the murder capital of the world"—has actually spurred many locals to support marijuana legalization (or at least decriminalization). 

"The believe the decades-long U.S. 'War on Drugs' has militarized the border and put ordinary people under constant surveillance, disrupting lives and fracturing communities without achieving results that justify the emotional, cultural and economic costs," the Guardian reported. 

With Border Patrol seizing 44,000 lbs of marijuana in the El Paso area last year, residents believe that legalizing the herb would harm cartels' income streams and, in turn, take away much of their power. 

“The cartels are bigger and stronger than they’ve ever been and what have we really done that’s thwarted their efforts? Nothing,” Justin Underwood, an El Paso attorney, told the Guardian. “I am of the opinion that human beings are going to do drugs, period. Human beings are going to drink alcohol. I accept these things as facts and as long as you have a demand you will always have a supply, no matter what.”
