Florida MMJ Campaign Funded By Concerned Citizens. The Opposition? Not So Much.

Florida voters will get the chance to vote for medical marijuana in November during the 2014 Election. The battle to legalize medical marijuana in Florida has been no easy task. Just to get on the ballot took a tremendous amount of signatures, and from specific districts in Florida. States like my home State of Oregon don’t have district requirements. After gaining ballot approval, the Florida medical marijuana campaign faced almost immediate, well funded opposition from medical marijuana opponents. These opponents have claimed numerous times that ‘big marijuana’ is ‘invading Florida’ [...]

Marijuana Prohibition Enforcement Continues In Czech Republic Despite Reform

Five years ago the Czech Republic reformed its marijuana laws. Possession of up to 15 grams of marijuana and cultivation of up to five plants is no longer a prosecutable offense. Instead, if those limits are not exceeded the penalty is a fine. There was speculation that these reforms would make Prague the ‘new Amsterdam’ of Europe. While Prague is definitely a cannabis friendly destination, it is still not the free-for-all that some expected. Law enforcement in the Czech Republic seems willing to turn a blind eye to small possession [...]

Catholic Church In The Phillippines Supports Medical Marijuana

Last month Pope Francis made statements that he is against marijuana legalization. At a drug enforcement conference in Rome, Pope Francis stated that drug addiction is an evil, and with evil there can be no yielding or compromise. Pope Francis went on to say that attempts to legalize are highly questionable and fail to produce the desired effects. The comments drew criticism from marijuana reform activists and organizations almost instantly. Pope Francis didn’t make any comments at the event in regards to medical marijuana. While I feel the Catholic Church [...]

U.S. Drug Policy And The Border Child Immigration Crisis

By Phillip Smith The mass migration of tens of thousands of children and adolescents from Central America festered for months before exploding into a full-blown border refugee/immigration crisis in the last few weeks, as images of hundreds of children warehoused in temporary holding facilities competed with equally compelling images of crowds of angry Americans loudly protesting their presence. The finger-pointing is in full swing. Much of it centers on the need to “secure the border” and the Obama administration’s alleged failure to do so. Other Republican critics blame the administration’s [...]

Cannabis Reform Opponents Are Largely Funded By Pharmaceutical Companies

If you have followed the fight to end cannabis prohibition, than you have no doubt heard of the organizations Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America (CADCA) and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids (formerly the Partnership for a Drug-Free America). These two groups are at the forefront of the fight to maintain cannabis prohibition in America. They claim that they fight cannabis reform because they want to keep America drug free. The Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America holds an annual event near Washington D.C.. This year’s event included numerous guest speakers who [...]

US Commission Votes To Make Drug Sentencing Reductions Retroactive

By Phillip Smith The US Sentencing Commission Friday voted unanimously to make previously agreed upon federal drug sentencing reductions retroactive. That means tens of thousands of federal drug prisoners could see sentence cuts beginning in November 2015. The move comes after the Commission’s April decision to amend federal sentencing guidelines by lowering base offense levels in the guidelines’ Drug Quantity Table across all drug types, which should lead to lower sentences for most federal drug offenders. Today’s vote means that sentencing judges can extend that reduction to people currently serving drug sentences. [...]

Sting Operations Show No Colorado Cannabis Stores Selling To Kids

One of the first things that cannabis industry opponents say when trying to spread their message is that legalizing cannabis sales will increase children’s access to cannabis. That will then be accompanied by a surge in cannabis use by underage people these opponents claim. If recent underage sting operations in Colorado are any indication, those claims are unfounded. Law enforcement and state regulators recently conducted underage sting operations at cannabis stores in Denver and Pueblo. Underage individuals were sent into twenty different stores to try to purchase legal cannabis, similar [...]

Andrew Sullivan Keynoting The ICBC Is A Pretty Big Deal

As it has been reported widely over the interwebs, blogger and author Andrew Sullivan will be delivering the keynote address at the first International Cannabis Business Conference this September in Portland, Oregon. The conference features several true heavyweights and heroes of the cannabis community including Steve DeAngelo of Harborside, renowned grower Ed Rosenthal and Congressman Earl Blumenauer, one of our best champions in Washington, D.C. However, the addition of Andrew Sullivan to a cannabis conference is truly noteworthy. Sullivan is much better known as a libertarian conservative political commentator than he is for [...]
