California Cannabis Labeling Requirements Under Prop 65
DEA Chief: Why is Chuck Rosenberg Still Here?
We are already six months into the Trump administration and most Obama-era appointees have been booted out and very few have been replaced.
In fact, the Trump government is running on a skeletal crew, which seems to shrink daily. For example, hurricane season is upon us, and Trump hasn’t hired a director for FEMA yet.
With these huge gaps in his cabinet and hundreds of jobs yet to fill, it is extremely disappointing that the most anti-weed leftover from the Obama administration is still hanging in there.
DEA Administrator Chuck Rosenberg, an anti-marijuana zealot and drug war proponent, is unfortunately in a strong position to push his prohibitionist values on the budding weed industry.
Lawmakers Still Haven’t Done Their Jobs And Legalized Marijuana
In between collecting campaign contributions from our oligarchical betters and cashing out their morals in exchange for more power, lawmakers also occasionally make laws.
Eventually, lawmakers may even make a law supported by almost two-thirds of their bosses—us—and pass a law that legalizes marijuana, rather than leaving the job up to voters. Which is what they’ve been content to do so far.
To date, every state that’s legalized marijuana has done so at the ballot box. Colorado, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Massachusetts, Maine—in each state where cannabis is legal for adults 21 and over, it’s legal because of a voter initiative, despite massive public support for cannabis legalization.
DEA Denies Science on Medical Marijuana—Again!
The Washington Examiner reported that he told an audience at a clinic in Cleveland: “If it turns out that there is something in smoked marijuana that helps people, that’s awesome. I will be the last person to stand in the way of that… But let’s run it through the Food and Drug Administration process, and let’s stick to the science on it.”
Former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, appearing along with Rosenberg, added: “Should we be reducing the administrative and other barriers to researching that in the government? 100 percent. But what we should not do is make policies based on guesswork. When we do that, what we do is put people at risk.”
This is all outrageous hypocrisy.
Colorado Marijuana Market Funds Busts of Illegal Growers
DENVER (AP) — The first recreational pot market in the U.S. was set Thursday to notch another marijuana first when Colorado approves using marijuana taxes to fund police efforts to crack down on illegal growing operations.
A measure scheduled to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper sets aside nearly $6 million a year in Colorado marijuana tax revenue to reimburse police for investigating black-market marijuana activity that authorities say has increased since the state legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.
The fund was backed by police groups who complain that marijuana legalization has attracted illicit marijuana growers along with legal ones.
The bill was also backed by Colorado’s nascent marijuana industry amid complaints that illegal growing operations undercut prices of pot grown legally and give legalization a bad name.
L.A. proposes new regulations on how and where marijuana shops can operate
Los Angeles unveiled a new set of proposed regulations Thursday on how and where marijuana businesses can operate within city limits, the latest step toward reworking its rules after Californians voted to legalize recreational pot.
The draft rules would impose restrictions on where pot shops that sell marijuana to customers on site can operate, limiting them to most commercial and industrial zones and barring them from opening within 800 feet of one another.
Marijuana retailers would also be prohibited from operating within 800 feet of schools, public libraries, parks and drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Other kinds of marijuana businesses, including indoor cultivation facilities, would be restricted to most industrial zones.
