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:

Democratic Party Officially Includes Marijuana Reform in Its 2016 Platform

Category: Politics | Posted on Tue, June, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

The Democratic National Committee, which is led by embattled anti-pot proponent Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has officially made the decision to include marijuana reform in the party’s 2016 platform.

Over the weekend, the DNC announced the party was taking sides with the issue of taming the pot laws in the United States, a position that is said to include the elimination of the criminal penalties associated with the possession of marijuana, tearing down the barriers currently in place with respect the studying the plant’s therapeutic benefits, and allowing the scourge of prohibition to be severed at the neck in those states electing to make the cannabis industry a part of their economic profile.

Deleware Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Calls For The End Of Cannabis Prohibition

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, June, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

delaware marijuanaOut of Delaware:

Yesterday, state senator and Republican gubernatorial candidate Colin Bonini, publically stated he would sponsor a bill to tax and regulate the marijuana, a move that would make Delaware the first state in the nation to do so legislatively. This signals that the tide is shifting away from the failed policy of prohibition and toward a new, sensible way forward. Now is the time to tell your senator and representative that you agree with Sen. Bonini and ask them to support this responsible policy.

His statements came during a debate on a HB 332, a bill sponsored by Rep. Helene Keeley (D) that adds misdemeanor possession and marijuana paraphernalia possession to the list of violations that are eligible for probation before judgment, strengthening the state’s existing decriminalization program. HB 332 has now passed both chambers and hopefully will soon be signed by Gov. Jack Markell.

With the 2016 legislative session nearing its close, it’s very unlikely that a bill to regulate marijuana could pass this year. But with elections coming up, now is the time to let your state lawmakers know it’s time to end the prohibition of a substance that is safer than alcohol. Before you go, give your friends and family the opportunity to take action, too. Together we can forge a better path forward.
