Did Your Oregon Friends Vote To End Marijuana Prohibition Yet?

Oregon Measure 91 would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana. The initiative has a great chance of winning, but only if there is a strong voter turnout. If you have already voted, thank you so much for participating in democracy. For those of you that haven’t voted, please do so ASAP! We all know someone that hasn’t voted, we just might not know who he or she is. Fortunately, there is a great new app that can help you determine which of your Oregon friends or family members hasn’t voted. If you use the app and find out someone you know

By Phillip Smith It’s now less than two weeks until Election Day, and statewide marijuana initiatives are on the ballot in four states. All have a shot at winning, and as the clock ticks down, all of them are seeking last minute help to get them over the top. The Chronicle talked this week to people in the various campaigns, and all of them have concrete ideas on what people can do to help — whether in-state or not — in the final days. But before we get to what can be done, let’s first review the initiatives, three that

Fact – Dr. Chris Thurstone has served on the Board for Project S.A.M.. Fact – Dr. Chris Thurstone published an article on his blog (which receives hardly any traffic by the way) which insinuated that marijuana use by Michael Brown may have contributed to his own murder at the hands of police in Ferguson, Missouri. Those two facts caused a huge buzz on social media yesterday as Dr. Thurstone was called out by many people for his insensitive comments. Those same people called out leading marijuana opponent and reefer madness champion Kevin Sabet, asking if he stands by those comments or

Federal Senator Says He Will Vote 'Yes' On Marijuana Legalization

There are a number of United States Representatives that have expressed support for marijuana legalization. What was once considered political suicide (supporting marijuana legalization), is not becoming more and more common. However, getting a United States Senator to express support for marijuana legalization has been much more rare. I am proud to say that one of my U.S. Senators, Jeff Merkley, has not only expressed support for marijuana legalization, he says that he intends to vote ‘yes’ on it during the 2014 Election. Per Talking Points Memo: Sen. Jeff Merkley says he plans to vote for a ballot measure on

Marijuana Opponent Admits He Was Wrong About Marijuana Killing Children

Marijuana opponents will say just about anything to try to scare people away from voting for marijuana reform, even if it is a blatantly false statement. It’s a tactic that marijuana opponents have been using since the beginning of marijuana prohibition so many decades ago. In generations past, they were able to get away with it at speaking engagements, in print media, and on television. Those days are gone. We live in an era where information is readily available, and facts are checked constantly. Long gone are the days when marijuana prohibitionists can work with mainstream media to perpetuate false

Colorado Is Funding A Marijuana Breathalyzer

Marijuana opponents act like when marijuana becomes legal, our roads will instantly become so unsafe that everyone should fear for their lives. The fact is, traffic fatalities are at an all time low in Colorado after they legalized marijuana. But never mind that pesky fact, clearly there is a need to find ways to fix this problem that doesn’t exist (sarcasm). That’s why the State of Colorado recently granted $250,000 to a company that creates alcohol breathalyzers to see if they can develop a similar device for marijuana. Per The Cannabist: The grant, which requires matching funds from the company,
