A new get-out-the-vote video campaign has been launched by Drug Policy Action, a related organization of the Drug Policy Alliance, the nation’s leading organization promoting drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights.

Legalizing Marijuana In Alaska Could Create A $107 Million Dollar Industry

Politicians are always talking about creating jobs, boosting local economies, and helping industries thrive. For some reason, that rarely applies to marijuana. Alcohol, yes. Pharmaceuticals, yes. But for some reason when it comes to marijuana, a substance far safer than the two I just mentioned, politicians are either outspoken in their opposition, or are unwilling to go on the record. Why is that? Alaska voters will vote on marijuana legalization next week, along with Oregon and Washington D.C.. The marijuana industry could be sizable in Alaska if legalization is approved. Per [...]

Feds And Denver Police Conduct Large Raids On Marijuana Gardens

It’s not that often that I write articles about raids and busts. I have always felt that doing so breaks my soul a bit, because I don’t like highlighting the work of the opposition. But the raids in Denver, Colorado yesterday were so large, and could potentially become a public policy issue, that I felt it was worth covering. Apparently, the raids were a coordinated effort between the federal government, and the local police in Denver. It is alleged that the gardens that were raided were potentially part of a [...]

Anti-Marijuana Campaign Bus Ad Has A Typo

If I had a dollar for every time a marijuana opponent called me stupid or mentally inferior because I consume marijuana, I would have enough money to do a lot of things. I will be the first to say that my grammar is not always 100% clean, however, that’s largely due to the fact that I wake up two hours earlier than I need to before work and don’t have an editor. If I was, say, a member of a professional campaign staff that was creating an anti-marijuana ad to [...]

Doctors Testify In Federal Court That Marijuana Needs To Be Rescheduled

The fact that marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug is slap in the face to science, compassion, and logic. For something to be Schedule 1, it has to have no medical value. Marijuana clearly has medical value. This is proven by the fact that the federal government grows and supplies medical marijuana to four federal medical marijuana patients, and has for decades. The federal government also has medical marijuana patents. It may be the most hypocritical policy in government to say that marijuana should remain Schedule 1, and that’s saying [...]

Marijuana Opponent Tries To Tie Marijuana To Terrorism

Marijuana opponents are getting desperate. Within the last week or so, Dr. Christian Thurstone of Project S.A.M. tried to insinuate that the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri was the result of marijuana consumption. Also, a marijuana opponent at an Oregon debate stated that five babies have died as a result of marijuana in Colorado, which was blatantly false. And in one of the saddest articles I’ve ever read, marijuana opponent Cliff Kincaid is suggesting that marijuana is the cause of terrorist acts. Below is an excerpt from his article, [...]

Missouri Marijuana Legalization Advocates Aim For 2016

Many people don’t know just how hard people are working in Missouri to legalize marijuana. The Show-Me Cannabis campaign team has been working long hours since 2012 to try to educate the public on the dangers of marijuana prohibition, and the benefits of a taxed and regulated system. It’s far from a sure thing, but I personally think that Missouri has a chance of legalizing marijuana in 2016. Whether it happens or not, only time will tell. However, it won’t be fore lack of effort. Per KansasCity.Com: “For years, this [...]

Marijuana Legalization Will Boost Public Safety In Oregon

Law enforcement should be focused on finding real criminals, not going after marijuana consumers and growers. As a marijuana consumer in Oregon, I have never been able to trust law enforcement. I have been the victim of crimes before, but I could never call the cops because I didn’t know if they were going to turn my house upside down because they smelled marijuana. No one should ever have to live like that. People should be able to call the cops without living in fear of what could happen next [...]
