Actor Bill Murray's Views On Marijuana

You are also talking about something that has been illegal for so many years, and marijuana is responsible for such a large part of the prison population, for the crime of self-medication. And [...]

Italian City Of Turin Votes In Favor Of Medical Marijuana Legalization

Last week the city council of Turin, Italy approved a motion in favor of legalizing medical marijuana. This makes Turin the first major city in Italy to do so. As is the case in cities in the United States that have reformed marijuana at the local level, it’s more symbolic than anything, as the vote is not legally binding and will no doubt be superseded by the national government. As I always say, even symbolic victories are still victories, and getting elected officials to come out in an official capacity [...]

That’s because District activists, led by the indefatigable Adam Eidinger and the DC Cannabis Campaign have filed a marijuana legalization initiative with DC officials and are determined to move forward with it. According to [...]
