Will "New" Federal Marijuana Policy Change Much?

The U.S. Department of Justice’s response to state marijuana laws generated many headlines last week. While the federal government’s concession is a clear political victory for drug policy reformers and will do much to embolden further changes to marijuana laws in U.S. states and across the globe, it remains to be seen how, exactly, the new guidelines issued from Main Justice will affect the threats and harassment that several U.S. attorneys have carried on against state-legal marijuana businesses for much of Barack Obama’s presidency. While other reformers immediately seized on the news as an unequivocal victory, I was a bit more skeptical: “It’s

North Carolina Legislature Overrides Drug Test Bill Veto

By Phillip Smith North Carolina’s Republican Gov. Pat McCrory last month vetoed a welfare drug testing bill championed by his own party in the legislature, saying it was “a recipe for government overreach and unnecessary government intrusion” and “not a smart way to combat drug abuse.” But this week, the legislature managed to override that veto. In votes in the General Assembly Tuesday and the Senate Wednesday, the Republican-controlled legislature chose to move forward with the drug tests, which will require some welfare applicants to pay out of their own pockets for drug testing before they can receive benefits.

Washington D.C. Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Discounting Meds For Poor People

A proposed law would make medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington, D.C. give 2% of their profits to a program to provide cannabis to the poor.

Questions For The Upcoming Federal Senate Marijuana Hearing From California NORML

I’m curious to see what questions are asked at the upcoming federal Senate hearing dealing with the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) approach to marijuana legalization in Washington and Colorado.

Of course, many marijuana activists are skeptical given a similar memo was issued in regards to state medical marijuana laws, yet raids continued. Below are questions from a letter that was sent from California NORML to Senator

Important Votes On Marijuana This November In Michigan

I received the following e-mail from one of my heroes Chris Lindsey of the Marijuana Policy Project: Thanks to the hard work of many dedicated advocates, voters in Lansing, Ferndale, and Jackson will have the opportunity to cast their votes in favor of a more sensible approach to local marijuana policies on Tuesday, November 5. All three cities have certified ballot initiatives that would prevent local government from enforcing penalties on adults who possess small amounts of marijuana in a private residence. The effort involved an informal coalition of several groups, including the Jackson County Compassion Club, the Vote Green
