Marijuana Policy

Bernie Sanders Calls for Marijuana Legalization, Investment in Communities Harmed by Drug War. Vermont senator and Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders on Thursday released a sweeping plan for marijuana legalization that includes a $20 billion grant program for entrepreneurs of color, legalization by executive order within 100 days of taking office, and the expungement of past convictions. The proposal also envisions restricting marijuana businesses to be more like nonprofits and less like corporations, and bans tobacco companies from participating in the industry.

California Marijuana Legalization Expansion Initiative Cleared for Signature Gathering. An initiative that would broaden and deepen the legalization of marijuana in the state has been approved for signature gathering. The California Cannabis Hemp Initiative would free some state marijuana prisoners, protect personal users from regulatory and licensing requirements, limit commercial regulation to that imposed on liquor and wine, and limit retail sales tax to 10%. State analysts estimate that passage would result in reduced state and local tax revenues to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Massachusetts Judge Partially Lifts Vaping Ban to Allow for Vaping Buds. A state district court judge has altered Gov. Charlie Baker's (R) van on vaping to allow for the sale of crushed marijuana buds to resume. The move came after hearing testimony from medical marijuana patients and advocates.

Drug Policy

Beto O'Rourke Calls for Drug Decriminalization and Safe Injection Sites In New Plan. Democratic presidential contender Beto O'Rourke on Thursday rolled out a drug policy plan calling for the embrace of harm reduction strategies, including safe injection sites, and decriminalizing drug possession. He said the country needs to move away from a criminal justice model and toward a public health model to deal with substance use and addiction.

Julián Castro Calls for Marijuana Legalization and Expungements in New Criminal Justice Plan. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary and Democratic presidential contender has called for marijuana legalization and expungement of prior pot arrests as part of his criminal justice plan. He is also calling to "end the War on Drugs" and "address the opioid crisis and other challenges of drug addiction as primarily public health issues, not seek to further harm the and communities suffering addiction."

Drug Testing

Oklahoma Court Holds That Positive Marijuana Drug Test Did Not Prove That Marijuana Caused Accident. A machine operator whose hand was crushed at work is entitled to workmen's compensation even though he tested positive for marijuana because that test does not prove that marijuana use caused the accident, a state court judge has ruled.

The Liberals Amongs Us

Is appears that Beto, Bernie and others are all gong full steam ahead withthe Pot legalization plan. Beto takes it one step further by suggestinig if he become president (yea right) that there should also be "safe Injection sites" for persons to shoot up. The thought in his warped brain is that somehow this will he decrease the amount of drug users. 

This has been tried before and there are over a dozen studies that show this has no effect one way or the other regarding substance abusers.

'conservatives' are only

'conservatives' are only about conserving 2 things: ignorance and bigotry, which is what the whole damned drug war has always been about. best book on this is DRUG CRAZY.

safe injection sites are about harm reduction. pot legalization is eminently sensible, just read the book MARIJUANA IS SAFER.

this site has a great little summation of the corrupt and idiotic 'war on drugs':

https://wikispooks.com/wiki/War_on_Drugs

“You want to know what this was really all about. The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying. We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about thedrugs? Of course we did.”   -john ehrlichman

Drug injection sites

Some ill informed persona makes a negative remark above.

They need to check out the Swiss use of Drug Injection sites.

People are referrde from these clinics to detox services and the

number of addictive drug users goes down,   We live in a Drug Culture

with Tobacco being responsible for the wealth of the Viginia Planters

that let them spend way too much on European luxuries and not

enough on the Revolutionary War.  Alcohol via the Triangle Trade

helped as well and Alcohol is the deadliest legal drug.

   Before that the introduction of Coffee to the Europeans

fueled much discussion and talk of revolution in Merrie England

and other nations,  Chocolate was used by the Mayans and

Aztec cultures to stimulate their bloody religious ectasies.

     What are the chances of reducing the number of Drug Users

when we are all Drug Users?   The point is that choice of drugs

should not be made by government officials who have no special

knowledge of the substances involved but by the users when they,

in public and private schools, have learned of the associated problems.

Honest education is the key to avoiding addictive drugs from caffiene,

nicotine and tobacco to heroin.

       B. Sellers-User of Medical Marijuana, green tea & chocolate

Past user of Alcohol, LSD, Mescaline and Psilocybin as well as numerous

prescribed drugs for over 80 years.

This is utterly surprising;

This is utterly surprising; why aren't we paying more attention to this thing?  sudoku expert

Why is it that nobody seems

Why is it that nobody seems to want to talk about what's happening to 20+ million chronically ill Americans who are suffering the consequences of the crackdown on opioid prescribing?  We have tried everything under the sun, including mmj to no avail.   We have been on stable doses of prescription pain medications for many years without issue.  But since our government knows best, our doctors are being forced to reduce or discontinue our pain medications leaving millions untreated and undertreated.   We've lost count of the amount of patients who have died from heart failure,  stroke or SUICIDE due to untreated pain.   There's no way to accurately measure how many have turned to the illicit market out of desperation which is undoubtedly killing many because the illicit market is riddled with black market fentanyl.   We have been reaching out to policy makers,  media and anyone who can possibly help us but it seems that nobody cares.  We have become the collateral damage in this endless war on legitimate pain patients.   We NEED A CHAMPION TO GET OUR VOICES HEARD!   Please visit PainWarriorsUnite.com if you're in a position to help.   Thank you! 

All drug policies should be

All drug policies should be made with attention. The life of a fighter provide you workout Schedule according to your timetable. Bernies pot policy will be a good step.
