Legalization

Leveling The Playing Field In Florida With CFL NORML

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, June, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

After a narrow defeat in 2014, Florida voters will have another opportunity to legalize medical marijuana this November by voting YES on Amendment 2, but not before being inundated with misinformation from some of Florida’s most notorious marijuana prohibitionists. With more than $10 million dollars committed to defeating the measure, Floridians can expect a salvo of refer madness unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. Even in states that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana – Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska – anti-marijuana groups spent roughly $800k between all four states fighting legalization efforts.

In an effort to level the playing field, Central Florida Chapter of the National Organization of the Reform of Marijuana Laws (CFL NORML) led by executive director, Christopher Cano, recently launched a grassroots fundraising campaign with a goal of $250,000 to combat the continuous flow of fear mongering and attacks expected this fall. Indiegogo, the crowdfunding platform being utilized by the organization features a video produced by CFL NORML, pictures of past events, and of course a donation page where contributions can be made.

“We are appalled at the gross amount of funds the opposition plans to spend in order to continue the unjust policy of marijuana prohibition in Florida,” Cano said. “The Medical Marijuana Movement should be about one thing and one thing only, the patients. Mel Sembler and his No On 2 allies are willing to spend obscene amounts of money to hurt veterans and sick patients, and we simply are not going to take that laying down”.

Push To Legalize Marijuana In New Jersey

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, June, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – Fresh off a tour of Colorado, a New Jersey State Senator is prepared to offer legislation that would, if approved, legalize recreational use of marijuana in the Garden State.

Union County Democrat Nick Scutari didn’t sample the product, but noted how efficient and easily the state is running marijuana sales. Few problems for law enforcement, a lot of tax money coming in.

“I don’t see how any reasonable and logical person can come to any other conclusion that we should legalize it, tax it and regulate it here in New Jersey,” Scutari told KYW Newsradio.

Just how much money is at stake?

Gov. Kasich signs Ohio's medical marijuana bill into law

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

A bill authorizing physicians to prescribe marijuana derivatives to treat a host of health conditions was signed into law this afternoon by Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The second-term Republican had expressed support for the concept, but his office had not said whether he would sign the hard-won legislation until he studied its details. He signed the bill within a couple of hours of it landing on his desk.

The bill passed the Republican-controlled General Assembly — by a 18-15 vote in the Senate and a 67-28 vote in the House — on May 25.

West Virginia Legislators Propose Bill To End Marijuana Prohibition

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

west virginia medical marijuanaGood news out of West Virginia today. See the legislative alert I received below:

The West Virginia Legislature failed to reform its marijuana policies in the 2015-2016 legislative session, primarily because House Speaker Tim Armstead continues to oppose even the most modest, incremental reforms. Fortunately, now that a special session has been called, five delegates have decided this is an opportunity to raise the issue of marijuana legalization. Del. Mike Pushkin (D-Charleston) and a bipartisan group of four co-sponsors have introduced HB 114, which would make marijuana legal on a limited basis in West Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail published an editorial praising these legislators’ efforts, calling legalization an “excellent idea.” The Gazette-Mail noted that the bill “has no chance” of passing in the special session, but it still presents an important opportunity to raise the issue with elected officials.

Please take a moment to contact your delegates and senators today and urge them to consider the benefits of ending marijuana prohibition.

Then, please share this message with your family and friends.

Sincerely,

Matt Simon
New England Political Director
Marijuana Policy Project

Up to 12 States Could Vote on Marijuana This November -- Here They Are

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, June, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana legalization has been growing like a weed for the past two decades, but 2016 could prove to be its most monumental year yet. Although marijuana has gained 24 state approvals for medicinal use, and four states have legalized its recreational use, we could see up to 12 separate approvals for the currently illicit drug in November.

This expansion is especially important because current President Barack Obama has suggested that the best way to get the attention of Congress is to continue legalizing the drug at the state level. Doing so would eventually force lawmakers to reconsider the federal government's current Schedule 1 stance on the drug.

In total, voters in three states are guaranteed to vote on marijuana this November. Of the remaining nine states, one is a seeming lock to get a marijuana initiative on the ballot, while the remaining eight are still in the process of collecting signatures.

MILegalize And The Hollow Place

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana legalization milegalizeThis isn’t a typical facts-on-figures article about the MILegalize campaign to legalize the adult use of marijuana in Michigan. In fact, there won’t be any facts in this article. Only feelings.

Except, I don’t really know what I am feeling right now.

Part of me wants to say, FUCK YEAH! Less than 48 hours ago, our campaign turned in more than 350,000 signatures on 55,000 petition sheets contained within 61 boxes, collected over 11 months of campaigning. We raised just shy of $1.1 million and have a statewide volunteer base of more than a thousand registered participants.

Okay, so there were a few facts tossed in. Here’s another fact: I am on the Board of MILegalize, along with more than a dozen others, attorneys and significant activists from around the state. We did what people said we could not; we finished what people said was a dead campaign; we broke rules, made new rules and forced the Michigan Legislature and Board of State Canvassers to alter policy and draft new law to prevent others from doing what we have done.

All praiseworthy and remarkable accomplishments. So why do I feel hollow?
