Chris Christie to legal marijuana smokers: Enjoy it while you can because he'll enforce federal ban

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is attracting attention to his struggling presidential campaign by making it clear he doesn't want to recognize state laws legalizing recreational marijuana.

In town hall meetings in New Hampshire and an appearance on Fox News this week, Christie said that if elected, he intends to overturn state marijuana legalization laws, which have been passed in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Alaska.

"If you're getting high in Colorado today, enjoy it until Jan. 17 of 2017," Christie told an audience in Newport, N.H., on Tuesday, "because I will enforce the federal laws against marijuana as president of the United States."

Christie has long been critical of marijuana legalization, saying it can cause brain damage and lead to the use of such drugs as heroin and cocaine.  Christie has lagged in polls in the GOP presidential race in recent months but is receiving a new burst of publicity this week as he speaks out against marijuana.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, July, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

United Kingdom MarijuanaIn the United Kingdom, people can gather signatures for petitions and force a debate in Parliament for whatever topic the signatures were gathered for. One was started for cannabis legalization, and in just a handful of days, the 100,000 signature threshold was met. There is a deadline of January 2016 to gather the needed signatures, but as of this blog post, not only had the goal been achieved already, it was smashed with over 175k total signatures gathered and climbing. Below is the language of the petition:

Legalising cannabis could bring in £900m in taxes every year, save £400m on policing cannabis and create over 10,000 new jobs.

A substance that is safer than alcohol, and has many uses. It is believed to have been used by humans for over 4000 years, being made illegal in the UK in 1925.

You can add your signature to the petition at the link above. The petition was started by a 25 year old economics student. Below is more information about his effort, via The Guardian:

The man who started the petition, James Owen, an economics student at Aberystwyth University, told the Guardian he felt people in the UK were ready for cannabis law reform.

New York Doctors Refuse to Recommend Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

Although New York’s medical marijuana program is set to get underway in early 2016, some lawmakers are nervous that there will not be any licensed physicians willing to recommend this medicine to their patients.

Indeed, while the focus of concern, as of late, has been on the state’s restricted licensing provisions, only allowing five companies to cultivate and service potentially hundreds of thousands of patients, the real trouble lies in the fact that New York does not currently have a single doctor registered that can begin discussing with their patients the option of cannabis treatment. 

During a recent Manhattan Chamber of Commerce meeting, State Senator Diane Savino, who was instrumental in the passing of the Compassionate Care Act, told area administrators that her biggest concern with regard to the launch of the state’s medical cannabis program is that no physicians have been trained in accordance with the state law.

In New York, physicians must complete a training course outlined by the state Department of Health before they can legally provide guidance to patients pertaining to medical marijuana. However, the problem is, despite a number of companies having outlined training programs that match New York’s requirements, state health officials have not yet started looking into the details of the curriculum or begin accepting proposals.
