Republicans Quietly Admit Medical Pot Is Here to Stay

Category: Politics | Posted on Sat, March, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

No medical marijuana patient’s garden was too small for Asa Hutchinson. Under Hutchinson, who served as the administrator for the DEA under George W. Bush from August 2001 to January 2003, the nation’s drug cops raided cannabis grows with as few as six plants.

Once the windowsill-sized gardens were wiped out, their gardeners went to prison—even if they were demonstrably sick medical marijuana patients, and even if it required some legal trickery.

To trigger plant-count-based mandatory minimums, Justice Department prosecutors would add up the number of marijuana plants grown over a period of several years. This meant growers in California could be in constant compliance with state law, but if they grew 33 plants a year for three years or more, it meant prison time in a federal bust.

Trump Vows to Win War on Drugs, But Doesn’t Mention Marijuana

Trump Vows to Win War on Drugs, But Doesn’t Mention Marijuana by Phillip Smith

Phillip Smiths, one of my favorite and most prolific writers on the drug war, latest piece examines last nights Presidential inaugural address to Congress in which Trump vows to win war on drugs, but doesn’t mention marijuana. I encourage all of our readers to follow Phillip and his writing at StoptheDrugWar.org

In his inaugural address to Congress Tuesday night, President Trump echoed the ghosts of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan—not to mention Miguel Cervantes—as he vowed to defeat drugs.

 

If there is a silver lining, his ire appears directed at heroin and other hard drugs. The word “marijuana” did not appear once in his speech.

Jeff Sessions Breaks Silence on Pot Policy

Category: Politics | Posted on Tue, February, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department will try to adopt “responsible policies” for enforcement of federal anti-marijuana laws, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday, adding that he believes violence surrounds sales and use of the drug in the U.S.

In a meeting with reporters, Sessions said the department was reviewing an Obama administration Justice Department memo that gave states flexibility in passing marijuana laws.

“Experts are telling me there’s more violence around marijuana than one would think,” Sessions said.

Lawmakers have doubts that the system to license marijuana sales in California will be in place by deadline

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, February, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

State lawmakers voiced doubts Monday about the ability of state agencies to finish crafting regulations and a licensing system for the sale of recreational marijuana in California by the end of this year, as promised to voters.

The possibility of delay was raised at a hearing at the Capitol by three state Senate committees looking into whether state agencies are on track to complete the work this year.

Agencies responsible for constructing a system for selling marijuana in California, including the Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation, have fallen behind in some key tasks. Officials acknowledged that, while they can begin processing license applications by Jan. 1, 2018, the agency may not be able to issue all of the tens of thousands of licenses expected to be applied for by that deadline.

Trump has two paths he can take on marijuana legalization — here's how they could affect you

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, January, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

President Donald Trump set an ambitious agenda in his first full week in office.

After his inauguration on January 20, Trump signed an executive order that directs federal agencies to start rolling back the Affordable Care Act, revived two controversial oil pipelines, staged a war on the media, and played a game of chicken with the president of Mexico.

But we still don't know much about Trump's plans for marijuana legalization. There's a pretty simple explanation for that uncertainty: His administration finds itself in a bit of a Catch-22.

When it comes to marijuana legalization, there are two basic paths Trump can choose from. He can try to stamp out the $6.8 billion legal marijuana industry, or support states' rights to legislate their own drug policy.

Toke Grenades: DC Activists Pull Off Marijuana Fueled Trump Protest

Category: Politics | Posted on Sat, January, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

“America first” floated into a cloud of marijuana smoke. 

marijuana-themed protest of Donald Trump’s inauguration went off as planned on Friday, with several thousand (sort-of-legal) cannabis joints distributed and at least several hundred smoked four minutes into Trump’s first address as the nation’s chief executive.

As much less mellow protesters burned trash cans on K Street and President Donald Trump’s triumphant Inauguration Day parade trundled past empty bleachers, activists with DCMJ—the organization behind the successful 2014 ballot measure that legalized marijuana possession and cultivation in Washington, D.C.fulfilled their vow to mark the occasion with a protest smoke.
