Mexico Marijuana And Drug Reform Bills Filed

By Phillip Smith Late last week, lawmakers in Mexico City filed two bills that would begin to radically transform the country’s approach to drugs. One was introduced in the Mexico City legislative assembly and one in the federal legislature. The moves come as the debate over drug policy in general and marijuana in particular heats up in the region. The legalization of marijuana in Uruguay and the US states of Colorado and Washington has enlivened ongoing efforts at drug reform in Mexico, and the country continues to bleed from the [...]

New York Voters Support Marijuana Legalization

When marijuana legalization inevitably happens in New York, it will be a significant victory for the rest of the country. New York is a massive state, and it’s media reach is even larger. I’ve always looked at states legalizing like dominoes, and when the New York domino falls, it will result in a cascade of other state dominoes falling too. A poll came out today that shows majority support for legalizing marijuana in New York. Results of the Quinnipiac poll also showed MASSIVE support for medical marijuana in New York. [...]

Arizona Lawmaker: Remove Felony Charge For Simple Marijuana Possession

In a perfect world, no one would get arrested for marijuana, or even get a fine for that matter. Possessing and consuming marijuana is a harmless act that shouldn’t bother anyone, especially law enforcement. Consuming marijuana does not increase violent tendencies in people, and I’ve never heard of anyone stealing scrap metal to feed their marijuana habit. Unfortunately, in the world we live in, marijuana possession can carry hefty penalties, far beyond what is appropriate for the act. For instance, in Arizona possession of up to two pounds of marijuana is [...]

Which States Will Be The Next To Legalize Marijuana?

Marijuana was legalized in Colorado and Washington State as everyone knows. Legalization has been tremendously successful in Colorado, while Washington has had some good and some bad in my opinion. Which state(s) will be the next to legalize? Below are my picks for 2014, as well as which states I think will wait until 2016: Alaska Alaska is a very libertarian-minded state, and it’s ripe for reform in 2014. Marijuana legalization will be on the ballot August 19th in Alaska. It’s the only state so far that has a marijuana [...]

DEA's Own Hiring Policy Admits Marijuana Is Safer Than Other Drugs

There is a lot of hypocrisy, confusion, and ridiculousness when it comes to the federal government and it’s policies towards marijuana.  The fact that marijuana is a schedule 1 controlled substance would be one example that comes to mind, considering the obvious medical benefits that marijuana possesses. Another example would be the DEA’s own hiring policy, which treats marijuana as being less harmful than other drugs. “Under the DEA’s hiring rules, an applicant for any agency position who admits to or is found to have used narcotics or dangerous drugs [...]

One of the most common things I deal with at this blog is fielding questions from Oregonians who obviously don’t understand the law. [...]

Medical Marijuana Sponsor Says Police Are Addicted To Drug War Dollars

Minnesota Representative Carly Melin has been trying to bring medical marijuana to her state. When she set out to achieve this goal, she assumed that there would be some tough negotiations and compromises along the way. Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has insisted that any successful medical marijuana bill would require getting law enforcement on board. Unfortunately, it appears that members of Minnesota law enforcement are unwilling to compromise in any way. “It’s like negotiating with a brick wall. All along I have said that I am willing to amend the [...]
