Marijuana decriminalization: New York Senate won't vote on bill

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, June, 21st 2012 by THCFinder
ALBANY — Senate Republicans will leave Albany on Thursday without passing legislation that would decriminalize a small amount of marijuana.
“We’re going to end this session with a bang, not a bong,” said Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, R-Nassau County.
Skelos said Senate Republicans would continue to support keeping the possession of up to 25 grams of marijuana a misdemeanor and not a fine.
“That’s 63 joints,” Skelos said.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has sought the legislation mainly to curb the heavily criticized stop-and-frisk policy in New York City, where a small amount of marijuana possession was leading to misdemeanor arrests.
Skelos was mocked on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show last week when he said: “Being able to just walk around with 10 joints in each ear and it only be a violation, I think that’s wrong.”
The show’s host, Jon Stewart, called Skelos “Fran Narc-ington.”
After Thursday’s bong line, Skelos joked, “Now, if that gets me on the Daily Show again, my son will be absolutely thrilled.”
Cuomo and Assembly Democrats earlier this month proposed legislation that would make possession of marijuana under 25 grams a fine of up to $100. Advocates said youth could be negatively impacted by the misdemeanor marijuana charge, particularly in inner cities.
The proposal would mainly impact New York City, which had the controversial stop-and-frisk policy, but the measure would affect the whole state.

Hemp Protest in Front of White House

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, June, 20th 2012 by THCFinder

Last week David Bronner, the President of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, locked himself in a cage outside the White House and proceeded to harvest hemp plants to protest the fact that industrial hemp remains illegal to grow in this country despite having no “mind-altering” properties.


As you can see in the video, Mr. Bronner was cut out of the cage and put under arrest for his civil disobedience. The silliness of seeing them arrest this man does well to highlight the silliness of the whole situation. Mr. Bronner’s company imports 20 tons of hemp oil from Canada every year; that’s money that should be going to American farmers.


“Reefer madness shall be buried, American farmers will grow hemp again,” he said while cuffed in the back of a police car. And it’s true. Someday our offspring will read about marijuana prohibition the way we read about alcohol prohibition. As a time when our representatives went overboard and tried to control our lives, something that will always end in either dismal failure or revolution.


No matter what your opinion on marijuana legalization, there is absolutely no reason for industrial hemp to be prohibited. After all, if it’s good enough to import from other countries, why isn’t good enough to be grown here?





Jesus Chatline - Host Displays His Lack of Knowledge about Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 19th 2012 by THCFinder

This video is quite funny, until you notice that there are nearly 4,000 people watching this guy (Steven Chilton) live. That is more viewers than most webcasts will get. A caller into the “Jesus Chatline” asks about marijuana legalization and the host proceeds to display the most ignorance about cannabis that you’ve ever heard.


There seems to be a huge delay between the host and the caller and the caller seems to lose focus (perhaps a bit high and a bit flustered by the host) but the key to the whole thing is this show is rather popular by internet standards. Meaning there are more people like this host.


It’s one thing to be against legalization but still know some basic facts about cannabis. It’s quite another to get on the internet and spew easily proven falsehoods with a straight face to gullible viewers.


Which begs the question; does this guy really believe what he says, or is he playing a “character” on the internet for some other purpose? Is Steven Chilton real? Or does he just use religion for his own purposes like many before him?


It’s hard to believe any person that has an internet connection can be that woefully ignorant about something as prevalent as marijuana.
