Project SAM Board Member Causes Controversy With Ferguson Marijuana Comments

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,

Another Poll Shows Marijuana Legalization Winning In Oregon

Oregonians are getting their ballots in the mail right now, and many are no doubt voting ‘yes’ on Measure 91. I have yet to see a poll showing marijuana legalization losing. Sure, there are polls that show less than 50% support, but the ‘no’ side of those polls is in the 30-low 40% range. So hypothetically, if all of the ‘undecided voters’ voted no, it could swing the election in favor of marijuana prohibition. I’m hopeful that won’t happen, and I hope people keep urging their friends and family members to vote ‘yes’ on Measure 91. Another poll was released

Even More Proof That Marijuana Does Not Lower Your IQ

Social media will once again be flooded by legalization activists claiming the relative safety of marijuana as compared to legal drugs like alcohol. According to Christopher Ingraham, a Washington Post reporter, a study done at the University College of London has concluded that marijuana does not lead to lower IQ. This is along with study after study suggesting similar results, especially after Duke University published a flawed study in 2012 claiming the opposite. While I have no doubt that this will have a positive influence on drug reform, I am personally not too concerned with such studies. Is it really

Did Your Oregon Friends Vote For Marijuana Legalization Yet?

Many Oregonians have already received their voting ballots for the 2014 Election. If you have already voted, thank you for participating in democracy. For those of you that haven’t voted, and have received ballots, please make sure to turn those in. Many political analysts have pointed out the importance of people between the ages of 18-34 turning out to vote for marijuana legalization if Oregon Measure 91 is going to win on Election Day. Well over 600,000 Oregonians have visited this blog at one point or another, and a vast majority of those visitors are in that age range. An

Seattle Sends Warning Letters To 330 Marijuana Businesses

It could be the end of medical marijuana dispensaries in Seattle, Washington. A letter, dated in September, was recently sent out to roughly 330 medical marijuana businesses in the Seattle area telling them to either get a license to operate, or close. One of the licenses that the letter is calling for is a state license. The sad irony being that the state won’t issue licenses to those businesses because there aren’t any to issue. It has been a long time coming for these businesses, many of which fought a patient registry system in Washington (among other regulations), which is required
