National Cannabis Industry Association Congratulates  Alaska, DC, And Oregon

From earlier this week: The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) tonight congratulated the voters of Oregon and Alaska for choosing to take a smarter approach to marijuana by creating legal, taxed, and regulated access to cannabis for adults. NCIA also celebrated the victory of Washington, D.C.’s decisive support of legalization for adult use. “Voters in Oregon and Alaska have wisely rejected the failed policies of prohibition, and now they’ll reap the benefits of a legal, taxed, and regulated market for marijuana,” said NCIA executive director Aaron Smith. “That means safe products, responsible and transparent business practices, increased tax revenues and

Gallup Poll: Majority Of Americans Still Support Marijuana Legalization

A new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans still support the legalization of marijuana. The Gallup poll found a slim majority of Americans, 51 percent, favor legalizing the use of marijuana – similar to the 50 percent who supported it in 2011 and 2012, but down from a reading of 58 percent last year.

In Alaska, 52 percent voted in support, in Oregon it was nearly 56 percent and in D.C., the number was a whopping 69

Marijuana Enforcement Needs To Be Suspended In Oregon

After marijuana was approved by voters in Colorado and Washington in 2012, prosecutors in Boulder, Denver, King County, and Pierce County came out publicly stating that they would drop some current marijuana cases even though the laws hadn’t taken effect yet. Their reasoning was that even though marijuana wasn’t technically legal at the time, it would be very soon, so what’s the point of prosecuting people for something that was soon to be legal? This is something that I was hoping would happen in Oregon, and expressed that desire many times on election night via Twitter. It appears that the

Not All Washington D.C. Residents Will Be Able To Consume Legal Marijuana

Washington D.C. approved marijuana legalization by an overwhelming margin earlier this week. The initiative passed by a much larger margin compared to Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. It’s undeniable that marijuana legalization is what Washington D.C. residents wanted. There will no doubt be hurdles to face when it comes to implementation, but I’m confident that the will of the voters will eventually prevail, and most D.C. residents will be able to consume marijuana legally if they choose to do so. I say most because unfortunately, federal employees will still be banned from marijuana consumption, even during off hours. Per New Republic: Many D.C.

Public Hearing For Vermont Marijuana Legalization Coming Up

Vermont is on my list of states that could potentially legalize marijuana via the Legislature between now and 2016. So far, no state has ever legalized marijuana via its legislature, only via a citizen’s initiative.

Via The Joint Blog: Vermont Governor Peter Schumlin’s administration has announced that they’ll be holding a public hearing on November 12th as part of the state’s continuing examination of cannabis legalization.
