Jesse Ventura Is Fighting Again--This Time, It's To Legalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

Jesse “The Body” Ventura has been a long time supporter of marijuana legalization, but it took a seizure and medical marijuana to turn him into an advocate. Ventura didn't personally experience the seizures. It was someone close to him that suffered from seizures two to three times a week. A helpless feeling as he watched that person suffer and all he could do was hold them and wait for the seizure to run its course.

“Four different pharmaceuticals weren't working. The seizures were continuing,” he said. So he and his friend got in the car and drove to Colorado. “We had no choice.” Feeling fortunate that he had the means to go and friends in the state, he was able to get some cannabis for his friend (illegally, since they weren't residents) and it worked. “This person hasn't had a seizure since,” said Ventura.

New Jersey Legalization Proposal Should Include Social Justice Revisions

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, June, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

There was a hearing yesterday in the New Jersey State Legislature for SB (Senate Bill) 3195, which would legalize small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and older.  This Bill is sponsored by Senator Nicholas Scutari (D-Union). While we are generally supportive of bills such as this, and have reported on New Jersey cannabis policy before, we feel there are a few pitfalls with this one.

Additionally, The Drug Policy Alliance and other civil rights and racial justice organizations have expressed concern over Senator Scutari’s proposed legislation. While they commend Senator Scutari for his leadership on marijuana reform, they are disappointed that the legislation introduced does not include essential components to create a fair and equitable marijuana market in New Jersey.

N.J.'s move to legalize marijuana has begun. Here's all you need to know about it.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Although a topic in Trenton for three years, the campaign to legalize marijuana in New Jersey officially begins Monday when a Senate committee will discuss how the potentially billion-dollar  industry should be regulated.

So what will it take for you to be able to legally buy recreational pot in New Jersey? 

Gov. Chris Christie is vehemently opposed to legalizing marijuana and he has six months left on his final term. And the election for governor will matter for supporters of legalizing pot: Democratic candidate Phil Murphy supports legalization but Republican candidate Kim Guadagno does not.

Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Union), the bill's sponsor, said he wants to begin the discussion now to build support among his colleagues in the legislature and across the state.

House, Senate Pot Bill Differences Upset Marijuana Legalization Supporters

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (CBS) — A new version of a recreational marijuana bill is set to come out of committee in the Massachusetts House of Representatives Monday, and some marijuana legalization supporters aren’t happy with it.

Massachusetts House and Senate members have until the end of the month to hammer out a bill that would amend the marijuana legalization measure approved by voters in November.

The House Chair of the Marijuana Committee told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones he expects vigorous debate in both chambers.

New Hampshire Decriminalization Law Awaits Governor’s Signature

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

We have been following the proposed cannabis legislation in New Hampshire’s state Congress closely this session, and we are so glad that the decriminalization measure has passed through both the House and Senate! Now, we await the Governor’s decision on whether or not this will be signed into law.

According to The Washington Times

Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, said earlier this month that he plans to approve the measure, House Bill 640, and applauded the state legislature for passing what he called “common sense marijuana reform.”
If Mr. Sununu signs the bill as expected, the legislation will put the Live Free or Die State on path to join the rest of New England in rolling back penalties for minor marijuana possession.

Legalization Spelling Trouble for MMJ (But It’s Not All Bad)

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

Call us biased all you want, but it’s hard to find much wrong with marijuana legalization.

Legal adult-use cannabis sales have been good for schools, good for the economy and good for social justice. Jobs have been created, potholes have been filled and teachers and police officers (how’s that for irony) have been hired or kept on the job thanks to tax revenue.

Regulated and taxed cannabis sales haven’t caused a massive crime wave (sorry, Jeff Sessions), haven’t led to hordes of stoned teenagers dropping out of life (Instagram is a much bigger threat to society than weed) and haven’t led to dire political or social consequences for the lawmakers and citizens who supported them.

About the only thing we can name that’s been actively and possibly harmed by recreational marijuana legalization is medical marijuana.
