Marijuana Legalization Supported By A Growing Majority Of Americans, Survey Shows

A broad new survey shows that a majority of American adults continue to support marijuana legalization in the United States, and that support appears to be growing. The survey, released last week from online polling data company CivicScience, asked more than 450,000 U.S. adults over the last two years this question: “Would you support or oppose a law in your state that would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana like alcohol?” Fifty-eight percent of respondents said they support marijuana legalization — with 39 percent saying they “strongly support” and 19 percent saying they “somewhat support” reformed marijuana laws in their states….

A Modest Proposal: Let’s Regulate Alcohol Like Marijuana

Amendment 64 was Colorado’s “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol” initiative, which passed with 55% of the vote in 2012, getting 60,038 more votes than Obama. Part of the measure reads “effectively regulating cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol.” However, seven months into it, Regulating Marijuana Like Alcohol has been anything but like regulating marijuana like alcohol. Here’s what it would look like in Colorado today if instead, Alcohol were regulated like recreational Marijuana: No Bars or Taverns or Drinking in Restaurants. The biggest change to the Alcohol landscape will be the total lack of someplace to go and drink. Bars and…

Girl at center of fight to legalize cannabis oil dies at age 7

Lydia Schaeffer, the 7-year-old girl with a rare genetic disorder whose plight inspired lawmakers in Wisconsin to legalize a marijuana extract to treat her condition despite their opposition to medical marijuana, has died. Lydia’s mother, Sally Schaeffer, had been lobbying the state legislature to legalize the drug, an experimental extract from cannabis plants known as Charlotte’s Web, for use on children with seizure disorders. The lawmakers moved to pass the law in record time and Gov. Scott Walker (R) signed the bill into law in April. But Lydia, who died in her sleep on Mother’s Day, never got a chance…

Petition: Vote to Prevent the DEA from Arresting Patients in Medical Marijuana States

Despite saying they’d leave Washington and Colorado alone, the Obama administration really hasn’t. And the DEA’s policies and invasion of patient rights in all medical marijuana state remains a serious issue and an affront to anyone in America that smokes and supports cannabis. Look no further than the ‘Kettle Falls 5′ case to see a hard example of how the federal government still abuses its power by invading and interfering with medical marijuana states. It’s scary that an honest, good family of five may face life in prison for growing 70 plants of cannabis. But it’s a reality. However, on May 19, a…
