ASA Responds to Senator Jeff Sessions’ Attorney General Confirmation Hearing

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Medical cannabis organization expresses concern about Senator Jeff Sessions’ drug enforcement policy plans

Washington, DC — Today, confirmation hearings began for attorney general nominee, Senator Jeff Sessions. During the hearing, Sessions was questioned about medical marijuana by Senators Patrick Leahy and Mike Lee. Sessions implied that he would enforce current federal marijuana laws. Earlier in the hearing, Sessions said he would advise President Trump not to set policies that would conflict with federal law. While Sessions’ response did not explicitly state he would shut down state marijuana programs, his response to Senator Lee was, “the United States Congress has made the possession of marijuana in every state and the distribution of it an illegal act,” and that, “it’s not so much the Attorney General’s job to decide what laws to enforce. We should do our jobs and enforce laws as effectively as we are able.” Sessions concluded that Congress must change the law if they do not want the Attorney General to prosecute marijuana crimes.

Governor Proposes Decriminalizing Marijuana in New York State

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

For much of the past two decades, New York City had the dubious distinction of being the nation’s capital for low-level marijuana arrests.

Fueled by the data-driven zeal of former Commissioner Bill Bratton—the same “police reformer” Bill Bratton who suggested, in 2016, that marijuana was responsible for most of New York’s violent crime—NYPD officers dutifully collected petty weed busts like baseball cards.

In 2011 alone, NY cops arrested 51,000 people for marijuana offenses, most of them black or Latino people. The reason, police observers noted, was simple: Marijuana busts are easy, marijuana busts fill the stat sheet and marijuana busts fill the courts, filling in turn the public coffers with court costs and fines.

In His Final Year, New Jersey Governor Aims to Tackle Drug Crisis

Category: News | Posted on Thu, January, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Republican Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday that he will focus in his final year in office on New Jersey’s drug epidemic, promising to limit the supply of opioid drugs doctors can initially prescribe and seeking legislation to require insurers to pay for at least six months of drug treatment.

Christie turned the majority of his seventh state of the state address, usually a speech about the governor’s various priorities, into an impassioned plan to tackle a drug crisis that is claiming hundreds of lives a year.

“I will not have the blood of addicted New Jerseyans on my hands because we waited to act,” Christie said. “I will not willingly watch another 1,600 of our citizens die and watch their families mourn and suffer.”

Jeff Sessions Will Drastically Harm the Marijuana Industry

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

I want to be wrong. I want to be “Y2K will cause a massive global financial meltdown!” wrong. I want to be “the Rapture will happen May 21… er, October 21, 2011!” wrong. I want to be “Hillary will win Michigan by five points” wrong, even though that’s what has gotten us to this point in the first place.

But I’m not. Alabama Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III (2016’s runner-up to Detroit Lions’ offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter for “Most Redneck Name”) will be our next Attorney General and he will begin a massive federal backlash against states that have legalized medical and adult-use marijuana.

I’ve written about this before and I seem to get the same responses. None of them ease my fears any.

DEA Under Fire for Wasting Money and Being Incompetent

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

The DEA’s failed War on Drugs is among numerous reasons why the inefficient, money-wasting, disoriented organization should cease to exist and stop wasting our tax dollars.

A recent round of criticism prompted some lawmakers to complain that the agency’s weed eradication program is squandering millions of dollars in states where pot is legal.

Adding ignorance and corruption to the DEA’s list of dubious qualities, let us not forget the former DEA chief who stepped down after a huge sex scandal. She was then followed by acting DEA chief Chuck Rosenberg who embarrassed himself and everyone listening when he told reporters that marijuana was “probably not” as dangerous as heroin, adding, “I’m not an expert,” then proceeded to call medical marijuana “a joke.”

Missourians Should Not Support the New Medical Cannabis Law Submitted in Missouri

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

Anything that Eapen Thampy is behind should make people extremely skeptical and we would encourage you not to support it. Eapen has admitted to stealing the contact list from Show-Me Cannabis to raise money for himself:

Additionally, he is constantly trying to divide Missouri activists. We suggest looking at New Approach Missouri and supporting their efforts as they are backed by the majority of Missouri activists.
