Senator Jeff Sessions: “Good People Don’t Smoke Marijuana”

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, November, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Racist Senator Jeff Sessions who once said,”Good People Don’t Smoke Marijuana”, could turn out to be drug law reformers worst nightmare come true. Tom Angell at Marijuana.com reports that President-elect Donald Trump has offered the top spot in the Justice Department, Attorney General, to U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, an ardent opponent of marijuana law reform, several news organizations are reporting.

In his report Angell says,”If Sessions becomes attorney general, which would require a confirmation vote by his fellow senators early next year, it will likely become much more challenging for marijuana law reform supporters to encourage the new president to keep his cannabis campaign pledges.”

Ask Donald Trump to Support States Cannabis Laws [Petition]

Category: Politics | Posted on Sat, November, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

President Obama stated in 2014 that he would continue to allow states to make the decision whether or not to legalize marijuana. And while it’s looking like President-elect Donald Trump has his work cut out for him, we’re hoping that he too will continue to allow the states control over this decision.

Trump has stated that he thinks that marijuana legalization should be up to the states. You can check out his stance on legalization here.

However, with a new administration filling the seats of the White House and a complete party shift in both the House and the Senate, now more than ever, the people must make their voices heard.

You’re Not Against Cannabis Legalization, You’re Against Corporate Weed (And That’s Cool, But…)

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, October, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

When it comes to the cannabis industry, it’s time for the weed heads to ban together to keep out the greed heads. And that starts with how you vote this November.

I’ve been a cannabis journalist for fifteen years, and just published a book called How To Smoke Pot (Properly) that includes a lengthy section titled, “Cannabis Should Transform Capitalism, Not the Other Way Around.” I’ve also had the honor and privilege, as a longtime HIGH TIMES editor, of spending quality time with countless “Mom & Pop” cannabis growers, infused product makers, extract artists and retailers. I love this community, and what we stand for—liberty, reason, resistance, compassion, inclusion and stony solidarity in the face of terrible injustice.

So yeah, I’m staunchly opposed to any kind of corporate take-over of cannabis. And yeah, it’s already happening, and has been happening for years—aided and abetted by the suddenly weed-friendly corporate media.

Democrats Agree On A “Reasoned Pathway For Legalization” At DNC

Category: Politics | Posted on Sat, July, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

This week at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, the Democratic Party approved a platform that would dismantle marijuana prohibition. Calling for “a reasoned pathway for future legalization” the Democrats’ platform endorses the removal of marijuana from the list of Schedule I drugs, a category reserved for substances with a high potential for abuse and without medical benefit. It also calls for states to decide their own marijuana laws and for medical marijuana states to provide safe access for patients without federal interference.

According to Mason Tvert, director of communications for the Marijuana Policy Project, “It’s not particularly surprising that the platform calls for rolling back the failed policy of marijuana prohibition, seeing as the vast majority of Democrats – and a majority of Americans – support making marijuana legal for adults.”

For The First Time, More Republicans Now Favor Legalization Than Oppose It

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

YouGov recently released a new poll that indicates that more Republicans support marijuana legalization than oppose it.

Peter Moore, a pollster for YouGov, said in a statement:

YouGov’s latest research shows that most Americans still support legalization of marijuana, and that support for legalization has increased slightly, from 52 percent in December 2015 to 55 percent today. Most of this change is a result of changing attitudes among Republicans. In fact, for the first time, Republicans narrowly tend to support legalization, 45 percent to 42 percent.

However, while the trend for Republicans has improved over recent years, surveys also indicate that Democrats and Independents are still more likely to support legalization. Democrats back legalization 63-25, Independents 55-33, and Republicans 45-42, according to the survey of nearly 1,000 US adults.
