Arkansans For Compassionate Care Have Gathered Over 60K Signatures

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

Arkansas medical marijuanaI received the following uplifting campaign update from Arkansans for Compassionate Care, which is an organization that is trying to legalize medical marijuana in Arkansas:

Last Tuesday at the polls our team of volunteers collected over 4,000 medical cannabis signatures in one day! It was an amazing day of action that helped take our campaign to the next level. Arkansans for Compassionate Care had dozens of volunteers working in cities like Little Rock, Fayetteville, Rogers, El Dorado, Fort Smith, Jonesboro and more!

The next few months are critical to us making the ballot, but we need YOUR help to make that happen. Can you make a donation today to help us keep our momentum going?

2016 is the year that we will pass medical cannabis and finally protect sick and dying patients from arrest and prosecution. Since we now have 61,107 signatures we’re much closer to reaching our goal of more than 100,000. We need 68,000 valid signatures to qualify for the ballot, but since many signatures will be invalidated we need to overshoot our goal. In the next 4 months we’re going to be working hard to collect another 40,000 signatures. We can do this, but we’ll need YOUR help!

Can you donate today?

It takes resources and money to make this happen and that’s why we’re counting on YOU to help us with a contribution today and ask a friend to donate too! Any amount helps! Please share on Facebook too!

Ohioans For Medical Marijuana Submit Initiative Petition To State A.G.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

ohioans for medical marijuana mppBackers of a proposed 2016 ballot measure to establish a comprehensive medical marijuana program in Ohio submitted their initiative petition to the Ohio Attorney General on Thursday with more than 2,000 signatures.

The office has 10 days to examine the official summary of the initiative and confirm the petition contains at least 1,000 valid signatures of Ohio voters. The petition will then be sent to the Ohio Ballot Board, which will have 10 days to review the measure and confirm it complies with Ohio initiative laws. Initiative backers will then need to collect an additional 305,591 valid signatures of Ohio voters by early July in order to qualify for the November ballot.

Ohioans for Medical Marijuana, a campaign committee formed by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), posted the full initiative text, the official initiative summary, and a Q&A with MPP Executive Director Rob Kampia on its website earlier this week at https://www.ohioansformmj.org/initiative.

“This initiative was drafted to ensure seriously ill Ohioans have safe and legal access to medical marijuana if their doctors believe it will alleviate their pain and suffering,” said MPP communications director Mason Tvert. “The one benefit of not already having a medical marijuana law is that we were able to incorporate the best practices and lessons learned from the 23 states that do have one.”

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Bill Back In Action

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, February, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Pennsylvania lawmakers have been sandbagging a restrictive medical marijuana bill for the past several months, mostly in fear that pushing through any measure would lead to someone, somewhere getting stoned, it seems the proposal has been resurrected by the state legislature and is scheduled for a House vote later next month.

"I have heard the House leadership has promised the people desperate for medicine that there will be a vote the week of March 14,” Senator Daylin Leach, a co-sponsor of the bill, said in a statement. “I believe and assume that the House leadership are men of their word. Unless SB3 passes identically to what the Senate passes, it will have to come back to the Senate. We will evaluate it carefully at that time."

Canadians just won the right to grow medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Canadian medical marijuana patients have won the right to grow their own bud in a landmark court ruling released Wednesday.

Federal Judge Michael Phelan has ruled in favor of four British Columbia residents, declaring the country's medical marijuana regime, known as the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), unconstitutional.

This means that the federal law passed by the former Conservative government of Stephen Harper has no force and effect.

In a groundbreaking exhibition rich with opportunities for public input and dialogue about the uses and evolving attitudes about marijuana, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will open Altered State: Marijuana in California, the first-ever museum exhibition to focus on the topic, April 16, 2016, in its Great Hall. Set against the backdrop of a likely California ballot measure in 2016 to legalize marijuana’s recreational use, the exhibition features artwork, political documents and posters, scientific displays, and interactive and multimedia exhibits all meant to provoke questions and conversations about the provocative plant.

Designed as a catalyst for conversation and reflection, the exhibition explores the many ways that people consider marijuana, including historical, social, and political perspectives, scientific data, and opinions of a diverse range of community members and groups. Organized into ten different areas of focus—Cannabis Science, Medical Marijuana, Profitable Pot, Sacred Ganja, Criminal Dope, Creative Grass, Evil Weed, Politically Loaded, Youth and Weed, and Recreational Reefer—Altered State will provide the opportunity for Museum visitors to add their voices to the evolving conversation.

“We have designed an open and participatory experience to engage anyone who has an opinion or wants to learn more about the complex issues and information about this topic, which is relevant to all Californians,” says Associate Curator of Natural Sciences
