Big Support For Medical Marijuana In Poll

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
legal-marijuanaMost Americans continue to support legalizing medical marijuana, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, and most think the federal government should refrain from prosecuting patients and dispensaries in states where it is legal.
 
According to the new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 60 percent of Americans say they favor allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana for their patients, while only 26 percent are opposed.
 
Democrats and independents in the survey were most likely to support legalizing medical marijuana, by a 69 percent to 21 percent margin for Democrats and a 61 percent to 24 percent margin for independents. But even among Republicans, more respondents supported than opposed allowing medical marijuana, by a 46 percent to 38 percent margin.
 
Majorities of every age group in the poll said they supported legalized medical marijuana.
 
By a margin of 57 percent to 25 percent, most respondents said that the federal government should not enforce its drug laws against patients and dispensaries following state law that allowed for medical marijuana. The poll was conducted before Nevada on Wednesday became the 19th U.S. state, plus Washington, D.C, to legalize medical marijuana.

Arizona is pushing to legalize Recreational Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
arizona-legal-mjA north Phoenix man has launched an initiative to legalize marijuana for recreational use in Arizona.
 
Dennis Bohlke, the 59-year-old computer programmer who is leading the effort, said the Safer Arizona initiative is modeled after Colorado’s newly enacted law, which taxes and regulates marijuana.
 
“The intent of the initiative is to legalize marijuana in Arizona and to treat it as we treat alcohol,” said Bohlke.
 
The effort would amend the state Constitution to allow people 18 and older “to consume or possess limited amounts” of marijuana. The initiative would allow state officials to license grow facilities, marijuana stores and other facilities.
 
The initiative needs 259,213 valid signatures by July 3, 2014, to qualify for the November 2014 ballot.
 
Bohlke said he has no major financial backing to fund signature gathering. He said he has spoken with Republican, “tea party” and Democratic lawmakers about his effort and that while they would not support him, they “were very receptive” of his effort.
 
Bohlke acknowledged it will be challenging to gather the signatures necessary to place the initiative on the ballot without major funding.
 
In addition, law enforcement and prosecutors would likely mount a strong opposition campaign.

Colorado Localities Make Own Rules Before Final Decision on Marijuana Sales

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
AURORA, Colo. — As Colorado moves closer to issuing temporary regulations on the sale of marijuana, now legal in small quantities here, some cities and towns are not waiting for the new rules to take effect.
 
More than a dozen municipalities across the state have decided to enact moratoriums on retail marijuana sales, restricting them for now or at least until after the rules are finalized later this year.
 
Others, unsettled at the prospect of dispensaries within their borders, have banned marijuana sales entirely — which they are permitted to do under Amendment 64, the 2012 constitutional amendment passed by voters that legalized recreational use of the drug.
 
“As we talked to our police department and our building code enforcement people, it didn’t seem to be a very logical answer for us,” said Mayor Tom Norton of Greeley, a conservative farm town north of Denver that banned marijuana sales outright this month. “It seemed like it had the potential for creating more mischief than what we wanted to put up with.”
 
Discussions about how marijuana is to be regulated, and how the state will handle a legal drug market, played a central role during Colorado’s 2013 legislative session. Meanwhile, communities from Littleton to Vail have taken it upon themselves to ponder the issue publicly.
 
In the past six months, a task force of lawmakers, representatives of the state’s growing marijuana industry and others have wrestled with developing the rules.
