Illinois Senate Committee Approves Marijuana Bill That Would Lower Penalties

There is a lot of activity right now in regards to marijuana reform efforts in Illinois. The battle to implement the medical marijuana law that was passed last session has been ongoing. Fortunately license winners have been announced, and hopefully safe access will be coming soon to Illinois’ roughly 1,000 medical marijuana patients. There is also a bill that has been introduced that would legalize marijuana. Yesterday, a Senate Committee in Illinois voted 13 to 1 to approve a marijuana bill that would lower penalties for marijuana possession. Per The Joint Blog: If approved into law, the proposal would reduce

Medical Marijuana Recalled In Canada For Being Too Potent

There is a medical marijuana recall in Canada. As far as I know, this is at least the second time there has been a recall issued. This recall is unique in that the reason the recall was issued is because the medical marijuana is too potent. Per the Health Canada: Peace Naturals Project Inc. is voluntarily recalling product Nyce N’ EZ (Lot number: 12-NAE-003-14 and Lot Number: 12-NAE-003-14-A) of marijuana for medical purposes. During the course of a regular inspection conducted under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, Health Canada inspectors determined this product was labelled with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) of

Medical Marijuana Regulation Bill Filed In Washington State

The State of Washington has needed a medical marijuana industry regulation bill for a very long time. There have been attempts in the pass to do so, but those efforts never succeeded. Without fair, clear medical marijuana regulations in Washington State, the medical marijuana industry will always be under attack. That is bad for the industry, and is especially bad for patients. A new effort was started yesterday with the introduction of a bill in Washington’s Legislature. Per The Joint Blog: Washington State Representatives Luis Moscoso (D-Mountlake Terrace) and Maureen Walsh (R-Walla Wall) have introduced legislation to create a system of

A motion to dismiss will be heard in federal court Thursday in a widely watched medical marijuana case involving a family from rural northeastern Washington State.

Show-Me Cannabis Takes The Missouri Capitol

By John Payne On Tuesday, nearly 100 Show-Me Cannabis supporters converged upon the Missouri State Capitol for our lobby day. Donning green and white stickers reading “Friends of Cannabis Reform,” we crisscrossed the building from the morning until the late afternoon, talking to legislators and creating a very visible symbol to everyone there that this is an issue that Missourians care about. We primarily focused our discussions on medical cannabis (HB 490, HB 800, and SB 395), expansion of the CBD oil law (SB 386), industrial hemp (HB 830 and SB 255), and some potential legislative efforts to free Jeff Mizanskey.

Initiative To Legalize Marijuana Filed In Maine

Maine is high on my list of states that are next to legalize marijuana. I think it’s very possible that Maine could become the first state to legalize recreational marijuana via the legislative process. But if not, there is a solid backup effort for an initiative underway right now. Legalize Maine has filed a marijuana legalization initiative for the 2016 Election in case the Maine Legislature fails to act. Per The Joint Blog: The nonprofit political committee Legalize Maine has officially submitted their initiative to legalize cannabis to the Secretary of State, beginning the process of getting the proposal placed

Marijuana And The Environment: Regulation Is Needed

The arrest and citation of marijuana growers, providers and consumers across the country is a vast drain on our nation’s limited resources. In Oregon, a state with rather progressive cannabis laws, the state still arrested and cited more than 10,000 adults for marijuana every year, something that will thankfully end as the state’s voters have chosen to legalize cannabis use and its commercial production. Despite prohibitionists’ claims that those 10,000-plus arrests and citations really didn’t take any time, Oregonians wisely saw through the ruse and chose to better prioritize the Beaver State’s law enforcement time and resources. Across the United

Colorado Made $44 Million From Recreational Marijuana Taxes In 2014

Every state in America needs more tax revenue. There is literally not one state in the nation that isn’t dealing with some type of budget crunch in some fashion. That’s a big reason why marijuana reform has gained so much momentum in recent years. Marijuana sales are going to occur whether marijuana is legal in a state or not. By legalizing, taxing, and regulating marijuana, those sales go from occurring in the shadows to occurring at stores where taxes are generated for the states that allow such sales. That’s what happened in 2014 in Colorado, and the state is better

Missouri Governor To Review Man's Life Sentence For Marijuana

You may have noticed that on every page on our site, there is a banner urging people to send a text message to 420420 to learn more about Jeff Mizanskey. Jeff has been serving a life prison sentence in Missouri for marijuana only offenses. That’s right, this man will die in prison because of offenses involving a plant that is safer than alcohol. To say that Jeff’s sentence is wrong is a huge understatement. For awhile now activists in Missouri and beyond have been calling for Missouri’s Governor to step up to the plate and do what’s right and grant Mr.
