Senator introduces bill to legalize marijuana in New Jersey

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, May, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

The political situations in countries where there are more than two viable political parties can be understandably difficult for American audiences to comprehend. Britain is a great example.

The Conservatives, the current party-in-charge, are indeed conservative, and they’re clear to the right of Labour, the leading opposition party. Easy enough.

But then there are the Liberal Democrats, a sort of center-left party—but absolutely more center than leftwho have only the tiniest of presences in the House of Commons, with eight seats out of 650 (and yet more than 100 seats in the House of Lords). They’re not rabid nationalists who eat austerity for breakfast, nor are they socialists. They’re, well, sort of like establishment American Democrats. They’re boring—and lately, they don’t really win too much.

This now may change, thanks to cannabis.

Medical Cannabis has Unprecedented Support in Texas

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, May, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

HB 2107 Advances Through Texas House of Representatives

We have been monitoring various State Congresses across the U.S. and what cannabis policy-related bills they have circulating through them this legislative session.  One of the biggest surprises for me personally is legislative action and support we are seeing in the state of Texas.  We are thrilled to share the news we got today about HB 2107 from the Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy when they posted this:

Medical cannabis has unprecedented support in the Texas House. Now what?
Last Tuesday night, the Public Health committee considered public testimony in support of HB 2107 until nearly 2 a.m. Patients, including military veterans, caregivers, and medical professionals shared their stories and experiences with an attentive and thoughtful committee. The next day, the legislation gained significant traction, jumping from five to over 70 representatives signing on as either joint or co-authors. (Currently 77 co-authors.)

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, May, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

We have been covering a lot of news about what is going on in the New England States and you may recall that our last article about policy in Vermont discussed a recent cannabis bill proposal in the Vermont Senate.  As you can imagine, we were thrilled to see this in our inbox today from the Vermont Coalition to Regulate Marijuana regarding what is going on in the House…

Marijuana Legalization Bill Passes Through Vermont Senate

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, April, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

With all of the state legislatures being in session and the current state of momentum in the cannabis policy reform movement, it is no surprise that many states are seeing marijuana bills and other proposals come through for consideration.  The State of Vermont is no exception.

Just recently, the Vermont Senate voted 21-9 in favor of a bill that would legalize marijuana for adults in the State and would create a regulatory agency on the production and sale of marijuana.  This is not surprising, considering the recent news from New Hampshire and the other New England States that legalized recreational/adult-use cannabis laws this past election cycle.

According to the Vermont Townhall

Canadian Government Unveils Plan to Legalize Cannabis in Canada

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Around a year ago, it was announced that the Canadian government planned to legalize cannabis in Canada. Last week, the Canadian government, under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, unveiled its plans to do so.

The Cannabis Act is an act that was introduced to Canadian Parliament in 2017 that would legalize cannabis in Canada. It is a milestone in the legal history of cannabis in Canada, alongside the 1923 prohibition.
Should the Cannabis Act pass in Canadian Parliament, this country would become the second nation in the world, after Uruguay, to regulate a legal marijuana market.  While this feels like a long time coming, as it was one of Trudeau’s biggest endorsements while he was campaigning for office, it is definitely exciting to see it begin to come to fruition.
