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+


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.

One Out of Four US Senators Is a Marijuana Prohibitionist — Is Yours One of Them?

Marijuana legalization now consistently scores majorities in national public opinion polls, marijuana is already legal in four states and the District of Columbia and likely to be legal in a handful more, including California, before year’s end, and the Obama administration has effectively thrown federal pot prohibition to the wind in the legal (and medical marijuana) states, yet Congress remains to a large degree stuck in the last century when it comes to marijuana policy.

Granted, there are some small signs of progress, some nibbling around the edges of pot prohibition, through bills and spending amendments that seek to stop the feds from interfering in legal and medical marijuana states, but Bernie Sanders’ bill to end federal marijuana prohibition doesn’t sport even a single cosponsor. When it comes to fixing marijuana policy, Congress is going to have to be dragged crying and screaming into the 21st Century.

One reason is a sizeable contingent of senatorial prohibitionists. According to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), which just released its 2016 Congressional Scorecard, more than a quarter of US senators received a failing grade when it comes to supporting progressive marijuana policy reforms. A failing grade indicates “that this member expresses significant and vocal opposition to marijuana law reform.”

Today, North Coast congressman and longtime environmental leader U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) announced his support for the statewide ballot measure known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).

Prior to his election to Congress in November of 2012, Huffman served six years in the California State Assembly and was co-chair of the Legislative Environmental Caucus. He previously served as a Senior Attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council. As a congressman, he serves on the House Committee on Natural Resources.

“The Adult Use of Marijuana Act is a necessary statewide reform that brings a billion-dollar industry out of the shadows and into a regulated market,” said Rep. Huffman, whose district spans from the Golden Gate Bridge north to the Oregon border and includes the Emerald Triangle, the three-county region that produces most of America’s domestically grown marijuana.

“The measure takes historic, first-of-its-kind steps to reverse the devastating environmental and water damage that has been done by illegal marijuana grows in our state. AUMA is not just good social justice and public health policy. It’s forward-thinking environmental reform as well.”
