Illinois House Vote On Marijuana Decriminalization Measure Imminent

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Illinois medical marijuana hb 1I received the following alert out of Illinois. There’s still time to contact your Representative to let them know that you support decriminalization:

The Illinois House of Representatives is expected to vote on decriminalization as early as tomorrow, and this may be your last chance to help ensure the bill will pass. While the measure was supported by a large majority in the Senate, support is weaker in the House, and we need your help!

Please take a moment to ask your representative to vote in support of SB 2228.

This bill would remove the possibility of arrest and jail for the possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana and would lower the fine to between $100 and $200. It would also remove the possibility of a harmful criminal record for possession, which can last a lifetime. Finally, the bill significantly improves to the state’s current DUI law.

Advocates in Illinois have done an incredible job under difficult circumstances in working toward incremental improvement. Now is the time for one final push! SB 2228, sponsored by Rep. Kelly Cassidy in the House, is part of a multi-year effort to help move away from the harsh penalties currently in place, and help bring more consistency to possession laws in Illinois.

3 States Where a Legal Marijuana Vote Is Guaranteed This November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, May, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

This could be a transformative year in more ways than one. Not only are voters heading to the polls in six months to decide who should become the next President of the United States of America, but voters in quite a few states could be heading to their respective state polls to decide whether or not to expand the use of medical or recreational marijuana within their state.

Since California approved Prop 215 in 1996 to allow for the compassionate use of medical marijuana in select patients, the currently illicit substance at the federal level has expanded like a weed. Today, following the recent legislative approval of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, there are two dozen states that allow physicians to prescribe marijuana for medical use. Although the ailments can vary from state to state, many terminal cancers, glaucoma, and epilepsy are good examples of ailments with near universal acceptance across legal medical marijuana states.

It sure looks like marijuana legalization will make your weed a lot cheaper

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, May, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

One of the biggest questions surrounding marijuana legalization is whether it will make the drug much more affordable and accessible — and therefore increase use.

Well, some early data is coming out of Washington state, which legalized marijuana in 2012 and began sales in 2014. And it looks like, as drug policy experts long suggested, marijuana's price drops after legalization. Keith Humphreys of Stanford Universityexplained in the Washington Post:

California Marijuana Legalization Story

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, May, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A long-anticipated campaign to legalize recreational marijuana use in the state that produces more pot than any other commenced in California on Wednesday as supporters announced they have collected enough signatures to qualify a voter initiative for the November ballot.

A well-funded and politically connected coalition spearheaded by former Facebook presidentSean Parker said it has collected 600,000 signatures from registered voters — far more than the 365,000 needed — ahead of a July 5 deadline.

Stressing what promises to be a dominant message of the campaign, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom said the 62-page initiative will make it harder for people under 21 to obtain pot and easier for police to crack down on illicit sales than it has been in the two decades since California became the first U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana.
