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.

Republicans Snub Marijuana Legalization at Convention

Category: Politics | Posted on Tue, July, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

While there was certainly discussion about building walls to keep out illegal immigrants, protecting Second Amendment rights and religious freedoms, and imprisoning presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, reforming marijuana laws wasn’t on the scheduled agenda at last week’s GOP Convention. Despite the RNC deciding not to adopt the issue into its platform for this year’s election cycle, there are still many Republicans advocating for the legalization of the most commonly used illegal drug in the country.

“While there was recently a spirited debate about medical marijuana’s inclusion on the Republican Party platform, this effort was eventually shelved,” said Aaron Kall, director of Debate at the University of Michigan. “Republican delegates expressed some concerns about the medical benefits of marijuana, while simultaneously being worried about potential side effects. Republican delegates often hold more conservative views than the average Republican voter.”

Republicans Reject Medical Marijuana Agree on Building Trumps Wall in 2016 Campaign Platform

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, July, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has officially decided that the party will not support medical marijuana or ending the drug war as part of it official 2016 campaign platform. But it plans to get behind some rather ridiculous ideals ranging from Trump’s wall dividing the United States and Mexico to declaring pornography a “public health crisis.”

With less than a week to go before the Republican Party gathers for its national convention, the RNC has voted against endorsing the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes and putting an end to the failed war on drugs.

Democrats call for ‘pathway’ to marijuana legalization

Category: Politics | Posted on Mon, July, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

ORLANDO — The Democratic Party endorsed a "reasoned pathway to future legalization" of marijuana and called for the drug to be downgraded in the Controlled Substances Act, in a tense and unexpected victory for supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Going into the platform committee meeting, Sanders's campaign had no new language about marijuana. The senator from Vermont had favored state-to-state legalization efforts, and the language approved by the drafting committee called for "policies that will allow more research on marijuana, as well as reforming our laws to allow legal marijuana businesses to exist without uncertainty."

Does Donald Trump Support Marijuana Legalization?

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

As with figuring out Donald Trump’s stance on anything, it’s difficult to nail down exactly how he feels about marijuana legalization. Not only are there a plethora of contradicting statements, but deciphering the context of his statements adds another layer to wade through.

With legalization becoming more of a bipartisan issue by the day. With Congress allowing medical marijuana to be prescribed to veterans and no fines for banks working with the cannabis industry, the likelihood of any presidential nominee coming into office and dismantling the state laws already enacted seems incredibly unlikely. With that in mind, we look a the likelihood of Donald Trump to EXPAND marijuana access across the country.

The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) recently released their grade for every presidential candidate. Here’s what they had to say:

MPP Grade: C+
