Growing Support From Mainstream Media For Marijuana Policy Reform


legalize marijuana mainstream media supportLast week was very eventful for marijuana policy reform. The Oregon Senate approved a bill granting PTSD sufferers access to medical marijuana, the Vermont House passed a bill to remove criminal penalties for marijuana possession, and, in a victory that was years in the making, the Illinois House voted in favor of medical marijuana legislation.

The passing of House Bill 1 in Illinois is an example of public education at its finest. News organizations across the state set space aside to show their support for medical marijuana without reluctance.

Editorials in the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the Journal-Standard described the drug’s ability to alleviate suffering, and they also clearly addressed the bill’s strict guidelines to ease the fears of any hesitant readers.

Editorials like those composed in Illinois and other states such as Maine provide readers with a great service, and they can make all the difference in garnering support for marijuana policy reform.

    Good Catch !. 2.5 oz is a big difference from 2.5g ! This allows an adequacy of dosage for chronic conditions that in my opinion is meaningful in alleviating suffering not otherwise achieved by a portion the size of golfball. As a professional exorcist, i may add that the benefits of this gentle herbal medication is extremely beneficial to many of my clients, and when things get extreme for me..it invariably is considered over a stiff drink to help me to forgive what i have witnessed.
