Marijuana Policy

Bipartisan House Bill to Reschedule Marijuana Filed. Florida US Reps. Donna Shalala (D) and Matt Gaetz (R) filed a bill Thursday aimed at reducing barriers to marijuana research by moving it from Schedule I to Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act. The Expanding Cannabis Research and Information Act is identical companion legislation to a bill filed by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) in July, S. 2400.

Joe Biden Says Marijuana Offenses Should Be Misdemeanors, But Without Jail Time. During Thursday night's Democratic presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden muddied the waters by saying marijuana offenses should be treated as misdemeanors, even though he has earlier called for decriminalization. Many other candidates are calling for legalization. Here's what Biden said: "Nobody who got in prison for marijuana, for example -- immediately upon being released, they shouldn't be in there." he said. "That should be a misdemeanor. They should be out and their record should be expunged. Every single right should be returned," he said. "When you finish your term in prison, you should be able to not only vote but have access to Pell grants, have access to be able to get housing, have access to be able to move along the way."

Denmark's Capital City Moves toward Legal Marijuana. The Copenhagen city council overwhelmingly supports a pilot program that would see marijuana sold legally across the city. The city has long been prepared to move down this path, but had been stymied by a conservative national government. But now, left-wing parties won an overall majority in elections this summer. The new health minister, Magnus Heunicke, doesn't endorse the scheme, but the city council is moving forward anyway. Under the proposed plan, a half dozen or so marijuana dispensaries would operate in the city.

Peru to Start Eradicating Coca Crops in the VRAEM. For the first time, Peruvian security forces will attempt to eradicate illicit coca plants in the country's largest coca growing area, the Valleys of the Apurimac, Ene, and Mantaro Rivers (VRAEM), the government announced Thursday. Starting November 1, authorities will undertake a 45-day operation aiming to eradicate some 1,800 acres of coca crops, and they are vowing to intensify such operations next year. The region produced some 60,000 acres of coca in 2017, according to the UN. Although the region has been in a state of emergency for decades, recent governments have declined to send in coca eradication teams for fear of a violent backlash from coca farmers and remnants of the Shining Path guerrillas who have morphed into drug traffickers.

Biden, like Clinton, is way behind public opinion on cannabis

Far behind on adult use weed, and very, very far behind on medicinal weed. It would really be nice if the Dems don't again nominate someone who opposes overwhelming public opinion, and even more overwhelming Democrat public opinion. 

And Biden is also very rightwing on the war on users of other illegal drugs. Real Americans use alcohol, tobacco and prescription opiates is Biden's bottom line.

CURE

My name is Kayode, I was diagnosed of hepatitis E November last year, after serious fever, yellowing of the skin, dark urine, pain in the abdomen vomiting and fatigue. I was given some Ribavirin treatment at the hospital and it subsided but it came back after 3 months and this time it was worst, lever problem showed up, no hope of treatment/cure, I lost appetite and my joints was full of pain. But early this year my sister came across Dr. IYABIYE’s herbal treatment recommendation online and reached out to him for help and he administered his medication on me. I became totally cured after the treatment and all the pains was gone. I went back to the hospital and I was tested negative. I have to stay a little while to see if it will come back but behold: (I AM FREE) you too can be free from hepatitis with his medication.
