Missouri Fall Marijuana Conference A Massive Success

By John Payne We would like to thank everyone that helped make our fall conference and the associated events possible last week. Nearly 500 people attended at least one of the nine events we held from Wednesday to Saturday. We also received substantial media attention, including this Fox 2 story in Saint Louis covering our legislative panel, in which state Representative-elect Shamed Dogan (R – Ballwin) calls for the legalization of cannabis. We recorded all of the events, and should have video coverage available over the next few weeks, so […]

Forty Six States To Go, Help Us Legalize Marijuana!

By Keith Stroup, NORML Legal Counsel Please allow me to act nostalgic for a moment or two about the wonderful progress we have all seen in recent years, with a majority of the country now supporting and end to prohibition, and the adoption of various forms of marijuana legalization in many states. The political environment was not always so favorable. When we started NORML in 1970, only 12% of the population supported legalization; 88% supported prohibition. It has been a long, slow and sometimes arduous effort, but we have finally won […]

Bill Introduced To Overturn Ban On VA Physicians Recommending Medical Marijuana

U.S. House Representatives Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), along with ten bipartisan Congressional cosponsors introduced the “Veterans Equal Access Act” (VEAA) today, marking a concerted federal effort to allow our country’s veterans to become medical marijuana patients in states where it’s legal. The VEAA would simply allow Veterans Affairs (VA) physicians to discuss and recommend medical marijuana to their patients, a right enjoyed by physicians outside of the VA system. “Post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury are just as damaging and harmful as any injuries that are […]

Support Missouri Marijuana Reform By Buying Show-Me Cannabis Gear

The Show-Me Cannabis campaign is doing amazing things in Missouri. The education campaign that they have been running for several years now has done a lot to change minds in Missouri and spread the truth about marijuana in a state that is fraught with reefer madness in many areas. You can help them keep up their good work, and ramp up for a 2016 marijuana legalization initiative, by purchasing some Show-Me Cannabis gear. Currently they have different t-shirts and a wristband. I’d imagine more things will be added over time. The […]

Open Letter To Oregon District Attorneys - Stop Prosecuting For Marijuana

On election night I sent out tweets predicting that after Oregon legalized marijuana, that we would see parts of Oregon suspend marijuana enforcement. I’m happy to say that my prediction has come true, as Multnomah County and Clackamas County have both said that they will treat future marijuana cases as if Measure 91 was in effect. Multnomah County didn’t surprise me nearly as much as Clackamas County, which has traditionally been an unfriendly marijuana county. The same week that Oregon legalized marijuana, I posted an article urging all counties to […]
