University Of Missouri Ignores Warnings, Censors Student Support For Marijuana Reform

One of my favorite times of my life was when I was in college. I didn’t take the typical route that many other people take. I didn’t go to college right after high school, and started attending after I had lived quite a few years as an adult. I had to fight hard to get my life to a point where I could make college work, and I like to think that’s a big part of why my college experience meant so much to me.

It was while I was studying in college that I first learned about blogs, and how blogs can be used with great effect to spread awareness. I learned a lot about freedom of speech and expression, and how important of a right it was to be able to express political views in particular. I supported cannabis reform throughout college, and was fortunate enough to go to a university that respected my outspoken support for reform.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case everywhere. I read a story recently involving the University of Missouri censoring political speech on campus. Per Foundation for Individual Rights in Education:

Despite repeated warnings that it is violating the First Amendment rights of its students, the University of Missouri (Mizzou) refuses to allow a recognized student group to create T-shirts featuring a cannabis leaf and the university’s name.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has twice warned Mizzou that its treatment of the campus chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (MU NORML) violates the First Amendment.

Denver NORML Pushes To Legalize Marijuana Clubs And Events

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana is legal to purchase, possess and to consume in the state of Colorado, but where? Well, if you happen to be in the city of Denver (or most anywhere else in Colorado) the answer is very simple, you can only legally consume cannabis in a private residence. But what if your landlord won’t allow it, or if you are one of the thousands of tourists that visits our great city on a daily basis. Then where do all of those people go? This question is one Denver NORML hopes to help answer this November.

The local chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws spent several months working with various stakeholders to develop a regulatory framework to create a space where responsible adults can consume their legally purchased marijuana products. Denver NORML is currently collecting signatures for the Responsible Use Denver initiative. The initiative will provide a license for the establishment and operation of private, 21-and-over members-only facilities where adults and bring their own cannabis and peacefully consume it in a relaxed, legal public setting.

The initiative language was written to provide the city with what it is lacking, a set of rules and standards to open a business and maintain a license for a place for adults to responsibly consume marijuana. There are several businesses right now in the city of Denver operating in a grey area. Currently these businesses have no laws to follow or to protect them. This grey area needs definition. Those same businesses could now open marijuana clubs with their namesake or these businesses could now apply for special event permits where marijuana will be permitted.

Voter Suppression Under Investigation in Emerald Triangle

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

The California Attorney General’s Office sent a team to the Emerald Triangle's Siskiyou County in the prelude to the June 7 primary election, following reports of armed men from the sheriff's department intimidating members of the county's Hmong community—including menacing some at gunpoint.

Sheriff Jon Lopey said the deputies were mobilized as part of an investigation into voter fraud, and had to be armed because of rifle-toting cannabis growers in the areas. But the investigation seems to have exclusively targeted Hmong residents—some of whom were falsely informed that it is illegal for them to vote.

Alaska Marijuana Regulators Approve First Licenses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- Alaska regulators were applauded Thursday as they approved the first licenses for legal marijuana growing and testing facilities - another milestone for the fledgling industry.

Priority was being given to growing and testing operations to ensure that retail stores will have legal product to sell. The first retail licenses are expected to be issued later this year.

Thirty applications were on the agenda Thursday at a meeting of the Marijuana Control Board in Anchorage. Two were for testing facilities. The rest were for grow operations.

Michigan’s Recreational Marijuana Initiative Shutdown By 180-Day Policy

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

It appears that Michigan voters may have just lost their opportunity to decide whether the state should legalize marijuana for recreational use.

Reports indicate that a proposed ballot measure supported by MILegalize has been rejected by election officials because more than a hundred thousand signatures were collected well past the 180-day window allotted for these types of campaigns. 

Although MILegalize turned in nearly 350,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office last week, Governor Rick Snyder recently signed a bill clarifying an old law that requires ballot measures to secure the necessary signatures within 180-days.

Bureau Creates Opportunity For MILegalize By Suggesting Petition Denial

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

The Michigan Bureau of Elections today issued a Staff Report containing a recommendation for the Board of State Canvassers to not certify the petitions submitted by the MILegalize marijuana legalization campaign. That’s a good thing, said MILegalize Chair, attorney Jeffrey Hank.

“The Bureau gave the expected response- but the speed of the decision really creates an advantage for us,” said Hank. The Board meets on Thursday, and the Staff Report is on their agenda for that meeting. “This gives MILegalize the greatest amount of time to litigate before the ballot deadline. The process could have stretched out through the summer.”

Even though the Staff Report recommendation was expected, it is not a good precedent to set for other ballot proposals initiated by Michigan citizens in the future. “MILegalize’s Board is disappointed that the Bureau of Elections would enforce an antiquated policy impossible to comply with in order to keep Michigan citizens from having the opportunity to vote on the MILegalize proposal in November,” Hank added.

Last year, MILegalize and other petition groups asked for an update to the 1986 policy; the Board created one and then deadlocked on a vote to initiate it. “The State Board of Canvassers refused to rectify an unworkable and unconstitutional policy despite plenty of notice and opportunity to do so. The State’s interpretation of Michigan’s 1963 Constitution Art 2, Sec 9, MCL 168.472a, and caselaw continues to be in error and will likely be rectified only through legal action.”
