Arnold says no one cares if you smoke a joint
‘No one cares if you smoke a joint or not,’ the Hollywood actor-turned-governor told late night chat show host Jay Leno. Arnold was more than happy to puff on a joint in his old school documentary Pumping Iron so it's no surprise that his attitude towards cannabis is more positive than negative.
5 Million Facebook Petition For Obama To Legalize Weed
A Facebook groupgoing by the name of “Normal” organized by the US campaigning organization is aiming to get 5 million members to put pressure on Obama to legalize marijuana. They say that OBAMA was originally for the decriminalization of marijuana but after talking to his advisers he changed his position, one can only think that he was in some sense pressured to change his views and standings.
We just hope that Obama will stand for what he first said and that the freedom of speech is in some sense still there. They suggest that President Obama should instead take the advice of ex President Jimmy Carter; Jimmy Carter stated that "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself." This quote is right in some sense; penalties for possession should not be for harder than penalties for use or distribution.
Gallipolis bans sale of synthetic cannabis
The sale of the synthetic cannabis known as K2 or Spice was banned in the City of Gallipolis after the passage of an emergency ordinance on Tuesday night. During a city commission meeting the commissioners received a report from a City Solicitor Adam Salisbury about the substance popularly known as K2 or Spice. During the meeting, Salisbury brought an ordinance before the commission in regards to the sale of the substance. European countries and as many as 16 U.S. states have banned the substance K2 or “Spice that is reportedly supposed to be five times more potent than marijuana.
The City of Gallipolis is one of a handful of municipalities in Ohio that have passed legislation that illegalizes the use, possession and sale of the substance known as K2 or Spice. Ohio legislatures are expected to take action in regards to the use and sale of the substances in 2011. This is just one more city to go against the long lasting struggle to legalize marijuana in many countries as well as many other cities.
Pot activists vow to push legalization again in 2012
The state that gave us medical marijuana would allow pot for recreation. Then came the newspaper articles and the politicians warning us all of a world where stoned drivers would crash cars, doctors would feel drowsy and less coordinated during surgeries and employers wouldn’t be able to fire the high employees.
A day after voters rejected proposition 19, marijuana advocates wondered how they failed in trendsetting, liberal California.
Whatever the reason, activists vowed on Wednesday to push on in California, as well as in states that rejected other pot measures. “Social change doesn't happen overnight”, said Paul Armentano, the deputy director of the National Organization for Repeal of Marijuana Laws. These are very true words and if the pot smokers of the world are to eventually legalize the harmless drug then this is just one milestone in many to come.
