California’s Adult Use Of Marijuana Act (AUMA) Endorsed By Congressman Rohrabacher

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, April, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Dana Rohrabacher medical marijuanaLongtime GOP congressman U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) announced his support for the statewide ballot measure known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).

He is the second California Congressman to endorse the measure in as many weeks.  Respected military veteran U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) announced his support last Monday.

Rohrabacher is a 13-term Congressman who is a powerful voice for libertarian values.  He is the co-author of the bipartisan Rohrabacher-Farr amendment which has been passed as part of the Federal Budget and prevents the federal government from prosecuting medical marijuana patients or distributors who are in compliance with the laws of their state.

“As a Republican who believes in individual freedom, limited government and states’ rights, I believe that it’s time for California to lead the nation and create a safe, legal system for the responsible adult use of marijuana,” said Rohrabacher.

Bernie Sanders: "Pot Should Not Be a Federal Crime"

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, April, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

At a rally on Sunday in Madison, WI, Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders reiterated his support for marijuana decriminalization at the federal level.

"We can argue about the science and the pluses and minuses about marijuana, but everybody knows marijuana is not a killer drug like heroin," Sanders said,  “And that is why I have introduced legislation to take marijuana out of the federal Controlled Substances Act. It should not be a federal crime."

Local group attempting to legalize marijuana by forming new political party

Category: Politics | Posted on Mon, March, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

OMAHA, Neb. —A different political tactic is being taken by local marijuana supporters.

Rather than mount a challenging petition drive to put the issue in front of voters, they're attempting to form a new political party.

"Some medications just don't work," medical marijuana supporter Frank Riojas said.

Riojas said he's had family members leave the state for treatment.

"There's a lot of cancer in my family," he said.

U.S. Government May Push for International Drug Decriminalization During UNGASS 2016

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, March, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Although President Obama has not given any official indication, a leading official with the U.S. State Department seems confident that prohibition may become unhinged at some point in 2016 and lead to the possible decriminalization of all illegal drugs across the globe.

On Tuesday, William Brownfield, Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, told reporters that U.S. officials are currently at the drawing board in an attempt to draft an all-powerful piece of documentation — what he calls a “pragmatic reform agenda” — that they intend to present at the upcoming United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs next month in New York City.

Schedule II? Not So Fast, Hillary

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, March, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Speaking at a recent campaign stop in South Carolina, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called for reclassifying marijuana under the federal Controlled Substances Act, moving it from Schedule I—the most restrictive category—to Schedule II. “The problem with medical marijuana is, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence about how well it works for certain conditions,” Clinton opined. “But we haven’t done any research. Why? Because it is considered what is called a Schedule I drug, and you can’t even do research in it.”

To resolve this dilemma, Clinton said, she would move marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II, “so that researchers at universities [and the] National Institutes of Health can start researching what is the best way to use it—how much of a dose does somebody need, how does it interact with other medications.”

With Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump notching primary victories in Iowa and New Hampshire this month, legal marijuana proponents and opponents gained insight into whether the next commander in chief is likely to advance pro-pot legislation or enforce federal marijuana laws at the state level.

What could be in store for the marijuana movement if Sanders, Clinton, Cruz, or Trump wins in November? Read on to find out.

Hillary's wait-and-see approach
When it comes to marijuana policy, Hillary believes that states can serve as a testing ground for national policy.
