Frustrated Marijuana Legalization Supporters Head For The White House

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

white house marijuanaBy Phillip Smith

A demonstration headed by the DC Cannabis Campaign and Weed for Warriors is set for the White House Friday after the Obama administration failed to respond to the groups’ requests for “higher level consultations” following an initial meeting with White House staffers last month.

Headed by longtime DC political gadfly Adam Eidinger, the DC Cannabis Campaign is the group behind the District’s successful 2014 marijuana legalization initiative. The campaign’s White Housedemonstration last month led to that initial meeting and to the campaign’s call for further meetings.

Weed for Warriors is a group dedicated to working with the Veterans Administration to ensure that vets “have the freedom to use medical marijuana as a recognized medical alternative to harmful psychiatric drugs.”

Organizers are saying the event won’t be a smoke-in, but it will come close. “This will be an unpermitted event with mass cannabis consumption and escalated civil disobedience,” demonstration promotional materials say.

Colorado Governor Now Thinks That Marijuana Legalization Is Working, No Longer ‘Reckless’

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

john hickenlooper marijuana coloradoOne of the leading opponents to marijuana legalization during the 2012 campaign in Colorado was Colorado’s own Governor John Hickenlooper. Even after the election, Hickenlooper opposed marijuana legalization, referring to it as being ‘reckless.’ I think that Governor Hickenlooper wanted very much to despise marijuana legalization, but even he has to admit that things are going much better than he expected in Colorado, which he did recently while speaking on a panel at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles. Per the Los Angeles Times:

“If I had that magic wand now, I don’t know if I would wave it,” he said. “It’s beginning to look like it might work.”

It was the latest in a series of comments Hickenlooper has made signaling what looks like an evolution of his views on marijuana. In April last year, during an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Hickenlooper said legal weed was “not as vexing as we thought it was going to be.”

And during an appearance on “60 Minutes,” he predicted that Colorado might “actually create a system that could work” in successfully regulating marijuana.

Report: Southern California Cops Steal from 1 out of 10 People Without Conviction

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Although California is often revered as one of the more progressive states when it comes to protecting the average citizen from becoming a casualty of the drug war, a new poll has found that law enforcement is the southern portion of the state is still capitalizing on the seizure of cash and property belonging to residents who have not been convicted of a crime.

A couple of surveys recently published by Public Policy Polling found that one out of every 10 adults living in the counties of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino have been shaken down by the cops to the tune of cash and personal property without being convicted of any wrongdoing. The report points out that law enforcement in these areas has apparently made it their mission to profit from running seizure scams on the communities they have been hired to protect, with one in five respondents admitting to being close to someone victimized by this vile injustice.

Pittsburgh NORML Responds To Media Reefer Madness Hysteria Over Cannabis Concentrates

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

Reefer MadnessIt is with utter dismay that we awakened this morning to salacious reports from WPXI about a dangerous “new” form of marijuana that has arrived in Pittsburgh. WPXI seeks to warn us of the “dangers” of hash oil concentrates, also know as “wax”, “oil” “shatter” and “butter.” The alleged journalists at WPXI would have us believe that the risks from making and consuming hash oil concentrates are the latest “crisis” to afflict our region.

Simply stated, this is absurd “reefer madness” nonsense. Hash oil concentrates have been safely produced and used for decades. Hash oil concentrates are safely produced and sold for both recreational and medicinal use in legal states. Hash oil concentrates are particularly effective for patients who need an immediate onset of medicine. Hash oil concentrates are produced utilizing a variety of extraction methods including closed loop, vacuum purged and supercritical CO2 extraction. “Solventless” hash oil concentrates are increasing in popularity and pose absolutely zero risk during the extraction process.

Pennsylvania passed a medicinal cannabis law that permits the vaporization of cannabis oil. States with effective medical cannabis programs have seen the rate of prescription opioid overdose deaths drop by over 25%. Regardless of how potent hash oil concentrates are it is still IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERDOSE FROM CANNABIS. There has never, ever, in the entire history of the human race been a cause of death attributed to “acute cannabinoid toxicity.”
