Shield Protecting MMJ From Jeff Sessions Is Under Assault

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

The 85 words crammed into a congressional bill at the end of the Obama administration, known then as the Rohrabacher–Farr amendment, which prohibits the Justice Department from prosecuting medical marijuana in MMJ-legal states, is under assault with the threat of disappearing.

We can’t allow that happen.

We have until December 8 before Congress may decide to exclude the amendment from its 2018 spending bill.

The prospect that MMJ protections could expire has produced anxiety in the industry, not to mention for the millions who rely on cannabis for medical purposes.

“It is shocking to think that this is at risk,” said Sarah Trumble, of the Third Way, a think tank that advocates easing federal restrictions on cannabis. “This would give the attorney general a blank check to go after medical marijuana. Without it, he might try, but it would be really hard for him.”

As Congress works to finalize the 2018 spending bill, the fate of this crucial legislation protecting medical cannabis hangs in the balance due to differences in House and Senate spending legislation.

LANSING, Mich. — Alex Roth has gotten into the habit of pulling out his cellphone and showing skeptical friends a screen shot of the classes he’ll have to take to get his bachelor of science degree from Northern Michigan University.

“When they hear what my major is, there are a lot of people who say, 'Wow, cool dude. You’re going to get a degree growing marijuana,’ ” said the 19-year-old sophomore at Northern Michigan University in Marquette. “But it’s not an easy degree at all.”

His four-year medicinal plant chemistry degree — geared toward the burgeoning marijuana business that is about to explode in Michigan next year — includes classes such as organic chemistry, biochemistry, soils, biology, gas and liquid chromatography, biostatistics, genetics, accounting, financial management and perspectives on society.

Court Rules Random Drug Tests After DUI Arrests Are Unconstitutional

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

The Washington Supreme Court recently ruled that requiring people arrested for driving under the influence to submit to random urinalysis tests is unconstitutional.

The case ended up in the Supreme Court after three people were arrested in 2015 for driving under the influence. Each defendant was ordered to participate in random urinalysis testing as a condition for their pretrial release.

All three challenged the request with the Spokane County Superior Court, which denied it.

However, the state Supreme Court reversed that decision. The case was returned to the Superior Court for further proceedings in a decision written by Justice Charles Wiggins and signed by five justices.

One of the defendants, Cortney Blomstrom, was requested by the state to undergo random urinalysis four times a month. She objected, citing her lack of criminal record. The court also required that she abstain from using alcohol, citing public safety.
