Hawaii State Auditor: Legalize Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

A state that has a medical marijuana program but doesn’t allow medical marijuana dispensaries will never function properly. Patients need safe access to medical marijuana, and not every patient can grow it for themselves. Growing marijuana can cost a lot of money, and it takes a skill set that not everyone can obtain. That’s why medical marijuana dispensaries are so important. Hawaii’s State Auditor agrees. Per Marijuana Business Daily: “Because the sale of marijuana is illegal under state law, there is no place within the state to legally obtain marijuana, which forces qualifying medical marijuana patients to either grow their

Court Blocks Florida Governor's Bid To Drug Test Welfare Applicants

By Phillip Smith Florida Governor Rick Scott’s (R) drug testing crusade hit yet another roadblock Wednesday as a federal appeals court upheld a lower court’s ruling that his plan to make welfare applicants submit to mandatory, suspicionless drug tests was unconstitutional. As other Republican governors — most notably Scott Walker in Wisconsin and Paul LePage in Maine — did in this year’s election campaign, Rick Scott made drug testing a key campaign promise in his 2010 election campaign. The following year, the Republican-dominated state legislature acceded to Scott’s request and passed a welfare drug testing law. Welfare applicants weren’t the

Court Strikes Down Mandatory Drug Testing For Florida Welfare

Arbitrary, mandatory drug testing is wrong, no matter when such a policy is applied. That includes mandatory drug testing for welfare applicants.
