Marijuana Legalization in New England Is Stalled by Opiate Crisis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

MONTPELIER, Vt. — First came Colorado and Washington. Then Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C. Now, advocates for legal marijuana are looking to New England, hoping this part of the country will open a new front in their efforts to expand legalization nationwide.

But this largely liberal region is struggling with the devastating impact of opiate abuse, which is disrupting families, taxing law enforcement agencies and taking lives. And many lawmakers and public officials are balking at the idea of legalizing a banned substance, citing potential social costs.

Pennsylvania Will Become 24th State to Legalize Medical Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

Pennsylvania will inevitably become the twenty-fourth state in the nation to legalize a comprehensive program that allows patients suffering from with a variety of conditions to use medical marijuana.

On Wednesday, in response to the many calls for action from families of patients dealing with severe and debilitating disorders, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives put their seal of approval on the latest version of Senate Bill 3, sending it to the office of Governor Tom Wolf for a signature. The governor, who has been pushing for the state legislature to approve medical marijuana for the past year, now has 10 days to sign the bill into law. He is expected to act without hesitation.

As Legal Weed Goes Global, International Drug Treaties Are Questioned

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

In a teleconference on Wednesday afternoon, lawmakers and policy advocates from Canada and Mexico detailed their interests in marijuana legalization and discussed the upcoming United Nations General Assembly Special Session on drugs to potentially assist in policy reform on such substances. Both Canada and Mexico have recently made strides to legalize marijuana, potentially violating international drug control regimes. Nonetheless, advocates for marijuana legalization are pushing forward and pulling no punches as they make the case for regulation, and this teleconference was no exception.

Phoning in from Canada, Liberal Parliament Member Nathaniel Erskine-Smith wasted no time arguing against prohibition. “I want to start with a simple and broad proposition… the War on Drugs is a failure,” he said, adding that “[prohibition] causes more harm” than the problems it purports to solve. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal party campaigned on the promise of legalizing marijuana before winning the election in November, but implementing that reform hasn’t been as simple as advocating for it.

Phoenix prepares for legalization of recreational marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical-marijuana facilities may soon have fewer options of where to open in Phoenix, through zoning changes the city is considering in advance of a possible statewide vote to make recreational use of the drug legal.

The city’s planning and development department is proposing stricter regulations for new dispensaries, cultivation sites and infusion facilities. Industry advocates say the changes would make it even more difficult to find locations where they could operate. 

New medical-marijuana sites would have to be farther from places of worship and residential areas, if the changes are approved. They also would have to follow new requirements on their distance from day-care centers, homeless shelters and youth community centers.

Support For Marijuana Legalization In America Reaches 61%

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, March, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana legalization support gallup pollSupport for marijuana legalization has been growing for a long time. The highest support has ever reached is 58% in previous polls. However, it appears that number has risen even higher based off poll results that were released late last week. Per The Washington Post:

new survey released today by the the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that a record-high percentage of Americans — 61 percent — say they support marijuana legalization.

The survey uses the same question wording (“Do you think the use of marijuana should be made legal, or not?”) on marijuana as previous Gallup surveys, which had shown a previous high of 58 percent support for legalization last October.

However, AP-NORC asked a follow-up question that found a considerable amount of nuance in Americans’ support marijuana legalization. Twenty-four percent of legalization supporters said marijuana should be made available “only with a medical prescription.” Another 43 percent said there should be “restrictions on purchase amounts.” And one-third of legalization supporters said there should be “no restrictions” on purchase amounts.

Will Ohio legalize medical marijuana in 2016?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, March, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

COLUMBUS — After Ohio voters resoundingly defeated an ill-formed effort to legalize marijuana last fall, everyone started talking about "doing something" on medical marijuana.

The idea was popular with voters: As many as 90 percent of Ohioans say patients should be allowed to use marijuana for medical purposes approved by a doctor. And 23 states already allow some form of medical marijuana. But state lawmakers had rejected attempt after attempt to legalize it, and federal authorities still list marijuana among the most dangerous drugs.

Even now, with lawmakers mulling a bill and two groups aiming for the November ballot, legalizing medical marijuana is far from assured.
