Chronicle AM: Steny Hoyer Cites Gateway Theory to Oppose Legal Pot, Louisville Ends Pot Busts, More... (8/28/19)

Steny Hoyer goes last century with his embrace of the gateway theory, Louisville ends small-time pot busts, and more.

Top House Democrat Uses Gateway Theory to Oppose Marijuana Legalization. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the second highest ranking Democrat in the House, wrote Monday that he has yet to embrace marijuana legalization because he believes it is a gateway to "harder, more harmful drugs." Hoyer noted that he supported medical marijuana and marijuana decriminalization, but remained leery of legal weed. "I still have concerns on this after speaking to people who deal with drug abuse and rehabilitation issues and particularly after learning of the drug's harmful consequences as a threshold drug that leads to the use of harder, very harmful drugs," Hoyer wrote, using alternative language to describe the long-discredited gateway drug theory.

Washington State to Overhaul Legal Marijuana. The state's Liquor and Cannabis Board is proposing changes five years after the state legalized marijuana. "Cannabis 2.0" would overhaul industry rules to boost minority ownership of pot businesses, pave the way for home delivery of medical marijuana, and let the smallest commercial growers increase the size of their operations to become more competitive. The board has proposed two bills for the next session of the legislature: one would create a social equity program to increase minority ownership, while the other would allow small producers to sell medical grade marijuana direct to the state's 36,000 patients, who have long complained they have a hard time finding medical grade marijuana because it requires additional testing for pesticides and heavy metals.

Louisville Ends Small-Time Pot Arrests. Small-time marijuana possession will no longer be prosecuted in Jefferson County, home of Kentucky's largest city, the county attorney's office announced Wednesday. Jefferson County Attorney Mike O'Connell cited racial disparities for the change. "For me to be a minister of justice, I cannot sit idly by when communities of color are treated differently." Following the announcement, Louisville Police Chief Steve Conrad said he will instruct his officers to not "routinely write citations for this specific offense."

Pelosi's other lieutenant Clyburn is just as bad

No wonder Pelosi is so lackadaisical about weed. 3 old people who've been around forever defying the wishes of the large majority, and playing into the hands of the Republicans while they do it. They need to be challenged to a debate by pro-legalization Dems. Their rightwing views on weed, shared by Hillary Clinton, probably cost Democrats the 2016 election, they played powerfully into the idea that Dems are just a corporatist and special interest tool, indifferent to public opinion, not the progressives they claim to be.

Legalize it

I think we should legalize it. Not for addiction but for medicinal use. Let me tell you a story of mine. I had a nephew that was hospitalized due to dengue and he was traumatized because of the injections and other stuff in the hospital. When he went home, he was not eating, talking and always starring somewhere. I let him inhale some of the smoke of my weed. I know it was a bad thing but my nephew started eating and laughing. He even talk to me about the stars that he is seeing. Just want to share.  stump removal phoenixville pa
