NORML: Marijuana is here to stay

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, October, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

America’s real-world experiment with regulating marijuana has been a success.

Twenty-six states now regulate the plant’s therapeutic use, and four states and Washington, D.C., authorize its use and sale to all adults.

Contrary to the fears of some, these policy changes are not associated with increased marijuana use or access by adolescents, or with adverse effects on traffic safety or in the workplace. Marijuana regulations are also associated with less opioid abuse and mortality. In jurisdictions where this retail market is taxed, sales revenue has greatly exceededinitial expectations.

If passed into law on November 8th, Prop 64 would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis for everyone – tourists included – 21 and older. The personal cultivation of up to six cannabis plants would also be legalized, as would a regulated system of cannabis retail outlets.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, October, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

In America, it’s generally unwise to bet against the billionaires. And in California, the billionaires are behind legalization—in a big way.

The rich and powerful are pouring money into Prop. 64, the ballot measure that would legalize small amounts of cannabis for adults 21 and over in the nation’s most populous state—the home of the biggest and most sophisticated cannabis industry on the planet.

With just over a month to go before Election Day, pro-legalization forces had recorded more than $18 million in campaign contributions, according to the most recent campaign finance records, swamping the paltry $2.4 million raised by the prohibition set.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, October, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) — The hills on the Arizona border with Mexico are steep and bumpy as Paul Estrada drives along the fence, patrolling for drug and human smugglers.

Passing traffic signs pocked with bullet holes, the sheriff’s deputy points at parts of the wall that are but a few feet tall and laments how easy it is to get drugs into Arizona. In a mere month, Estrada and his colleagues on the border could confront a new challenge: legal marijuana.
