View Marijuana Legalization As A Moral Issue

By John Payne In “Back to the future: A wager on weed” (Jan. 29), James E. Fisher correctly urges readers to consider the moral implications of marijuana legalization, but I think his article gives an incomplete picture of the moral considerations at play. Under cannabis prohibition, around 20,000 people are arrested for possession of cannabis every year in Missouri. These individuals often receive criminal records that impede their ability to go to college, rent an apartment and get a job. I find that to be immoral. Blacks are more than [...]

By John Payne The poll we commissioned to assess the viability of a legalization campaign in 2014 has been completed, and it indicates that we would be wise to wait for the presidential election in 2016 to launch an initiative campaign. Among likely 2014 voters, 45 percent said that they would vote in favor of our proposal, and 51 percent said they would vote against it. The 2014 election in Missouri is expected to have a very low turnout because not only is there no presidential race, but there are [...]

California Marijuana Legalization Initiative Postponed Until 2016

By Phillip Smith The Los Angeles Times reported today that a deep-pocketed marijuana reform coalition including the Drug Policy Alliance had decided not to move forward this year with an initiative to legalize the weed in the Golden State. Instead, the coalition will aim at 2016. That means marijuana legalization will most likely not be on the ballot in California this year. Three other legalization initiatives have been filed, but two of them appear to lack the funds to complete expensive signature gathering efforts — 504,000 signatures are needed by April 18 — and [...]

Medical Cannabis On The Verge Of Being Destroyed In Washington

Action Is Needed In Washington State To Protect Medical Marijuana Patients’ Rights By Anthony Martinelli, Sensible Washington Washington State’s House of Representatives, in a borderline repulsive move, has given approval to House Bill 2149, a proposal to effectively gut the state’s current medical cannabis law. The measure was supported primarily by Democrats. Under this proposal, all collective gardens would be outlawed, in place of a system where only those already registered with the state as recreational cannabis retail outlets can distribute medical cannabis (despite these outlets not being open yet); [...]
