New Philippine President Continues Policy of Using Police to Kill Drug Dealers

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Newly elected President Rodrigo Duterte held a press conference Sunday to announce that, despite international criticism of his “shoot-to-kill” policy on drug dealers, he plans on continuing his enforcement methods.

“Why will I give you a [due] process? I am the president. I don’t give you [due] process,” the President said. “I will retire with the reputation of Idi Amin,” referring to the African ruler whose regime from 1971-1979 was known for large-scale rights abuses that killed thousands of Ugandans.

Part of the effort by Duterte to double-down his strict enforcement of drug laws is to build an electronic billboard outside the police headquarters in Manila that will keep a live tally on the number of drug suspects who have been arrested – or “neutralized” – during his administration.

Veteran Maine Policy Advocate Alysia Melnick Joins Yes on 1, the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol

Category: News | Posted on Wed, July, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Maine — Veteran Maine policy advocate Alysia Melnick has joined Yes on 1, the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, as its political director. Jordan DeCoster has also joined the campaign as field director.

“Now is the time to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in Maine,” Melnick said. “Passing Question 1 would generate millions in new state revenue, create hundreds of new, good paying jobs, and make Maine safer by freeing up law enforcement so they can focus on serious crimes.” 

Melnick has years of Maine political experience serving as legal counsel and senior policy advisor for the Office of the Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives where she worked to improve Maine’s drug policies, among other issues. Melnick is known across the state amongst patients, caregivers, law enforcement, and lawmakers for her work in 2011 drafting and successfully negotiating passage of Maine’s medical marijuana law while public policy counsel at the ACLU of Maine, which increased access to vital medicine, created economic opportunity, and protected patients, caregivers, and dispensary operators.
