How Pot Legalization Makes It Harder for Police to Violate Your Civil Rights

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana is an invaluable tool for law enforcement in America—but only so long as cannabis remains illegal, which is exactly what most law-enforcement lobbies and pro-police lawmakers want.

Under prohibition, cannabis is an incomparable catch-all excuse. The mere whiff of cannabis is sufficient probable cause for a traffic stop or, where the police-state tactic is still accepted, start a stop-and-frisk routine.

And that all ends as soon as cannabis is legalized.

According to a report from the Stanford Open Policing Project, which analyzed more than 100 million traffic stops across 31 states, motorists of all races are as much as three times less likely to be stopped and searched where, thanks to legalization, marijuana is no longer available as an excuse.

Congress Showing More Interest Than Ever In Marijuana Bills

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana-related legislation has received more support in Congress this year than ever before.

According to a report from MassRoots, there are now more federal lawmakers supporting marijuana bills, especially those seeking to remedy the banking conundrum for the cannabis industry, than in previous sessions.

One of the proposals, a pot-banking bill introduced earlier this year by Congressman Ed Perlmutter, has managed to secure 47 co-sponsors in 2017 – that is nearly 10 more backers than when Congress ended the session last year.

The second proposal, which was re-submitted in May by Senator Jeff Merkley, has already attracted more co-sponsors in the past few weeks than it did when it was first introduced back in 2014.

Marijuana bills dealing with federal tax laws are also getting more attention. The report shows that several of these measures have more co-sponsors in 2017 than in times past.

Opioid overdoses killed in excess of 33,000 people in 2015 and continue to ruin millions of lives, while our ill-equipped government dawdles with absurd and punitive solutions.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions refuses to view the situation as a public-health crisis but rather insists on criminalizing, penalizing and filling jails—the exact wrong path to take.

Sessions’ stubborn insistence on disregarding scientific consensus regarding the role cannabis can play in stemming the opioid epidemic actually threatens to make it worse.
