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.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

Germany has joined the ranks of Canada and Mexico in announcing definitive actions that will legalize medical marijuana for its citizens within the next year.

On Wednesday, a proposal brought to the table by Health Minister Hermann Gröhe designed to establish a nationwide medical marijuana program received a stamp of approval by the German government. The objective of the measure is to make medicinal cannabis available to seriously ill patients all over the country by creating a system that would allow the herb to be purchased from local drug stores. It would also ensure that weed is covered under health insurance. 

"We want to give the best possible care to the seriously ill," said Gröhe in a press statement

Report: Legalization Has No Effect on Teen Pot-Smoking

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, May, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

A new study to be published in the Journal of Adolescent Health found that, despite much hand-wringing over concern for kids, marijuana legalization had no effect on teens’ access to the drug in Washington state.

“There was virtually no change in the proportion of teens who reported it was ‘easy’ to access marijuana in 2010 (55 percent), compared to 2014 (54 percent) after the new law was enacted, according to the study,” the American Academy of Pediatrics said in a release.

3 Ways Prohibitionists Are Fighting Legalization in Mass.—And Why They're Wrong

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, April, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

After three top Massachusetts officials —the governor, attorney general and mayor of Boston— penned an op-ed arguing against marijuana legalization in March, industry associations were quick to follow suit, releasing statements expressing their opposition to the ballot initiative voters will decide in November.

The  Massachusetts Medical Association, Massachusetts Hospital Association, Massachusetts Superintendents Association of School Superintendents and Associated Industries of Massachusetts have all jumped on the anti-weed bandwagon, recycling the same prohibitionist jargon debunked time-and-time again. Groups’ statements voicing their opposition to the legalization initiative are heavy on concerns around health and children, but their rhetoric is light on evidence.

It’s Official: Maine Will Be Voting On Marijuana Legalization This November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, April, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

maine marijuanaIt’s official – Maine voters will see marijuana legalization on the ballot when they vote in the General Election in November. The marijuana legalization initiative made the ballot after a legal battle that seemed ridiculous from the start. Below is a press release from the campaign:

State officials announced Wednesday that a proposed initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Maine has officially qualified for the November ballot.

After a court-ordered review of petitions it had previously invalidated, the Maine Secretary of State’s Office determined the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol submitted more than the 61,123 signatures that were needed to qualify.

Last month, the secretary of state informed the campaign that the initiative had been disqualified because only 51,543 valid signatures had been submitted. The campaign filed a lawsuit challenging the decision, and a Kennebec County Superior Court judge ruled in their favor earlier this month after learning state officials invalidated more than 5,000 petitions —which included more than 17,000 signatures from Maine voters that were validated by town clerks — without actually reviewing every petition in question. The petition was then remanded to the Secretary of State’s Office to review all of the disputed petitions and determine whether enough valid signatures were collected.
