Retired Supreme Court Justice Stevens Calls For Legalization

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said on Thursday that the federal government should follow the lead of states that have legalized marijuana. That makes him the first Supreme Court justice—retired or otherwise—to endorse legalization. “Yes,” Stevens replied when asked by NPR’s Scott Simon as to whether marijuana should be legalized under federal law. “I really think that that’s another instance of public opinion [that’s] changed. And recognize that the distinction between marijuana and alcoholic beverages is really not much of a distinction. Alcohol, the prohibition against selling and dispensing alcoholic beverages has I think been generally, there’s a general consensus…

Majority in Colorado Say Legal Marijuana Good

Most voters in the first state to legalize recreational marijuana say the move was good for their state, according to a new poll. But a Quinnipiac survey of Colorado voters also indicates there’s wide partisan and generational divides over the issue. Colorado began allowing the sale of recreational marijuana on January 1 to anyone age 21 or older. The state became the first to open recreational pot stores and became the first place in the world where marijuana is regulated from seed to sale. People can buy marijuana like alcohol – except the cannabis purchase is limited to an ounce,…

Medical Marijuana Lessens MS Effects, Research Suggests

With medical marijuana dispensaries set to open later this year in Massachusetts, a review of the latest research suggests that it can help alleviate multiple sclerosis symptoms — such as pain, overactive bladder, and muscle stiffness. But the review, conducted by experts convened by the American Academy of Neurology, found that marijuana doesn’t help relieve the uncontrollable limb spasms that result from a drug used to treat Parkinson’s disease. And it concluded that there is insufficient evidence to know whether the drug reduces symptoms caused by neurological diseases such as Huntington’s disease, Tourette syndrome, or epilepsy. “We wanted to inform…

Light penalty in Alaska pot case “deal of a lifetime”

JUNEAU, Alaska — A prosecutor said he was giving a Juneau woman the “deal of a lifetime” when she was sentenced for a misdemeanor instead of a felony after officials found 55 marijuana plants in her home. Juneau District Attorney James Scott called the circumstances surrounding the prosecution of Bonnie E. Odom as a “one-off,” the Juneau Empire reported this week. If she had been convicted of a felony, she could have served up to five years in jail. Instead, she received a year of probation. Under Alaska law, it’s legal to have 25 plants. Odom didn’t deny wrongdoing when she…

Colo. lawmakers explore sealing records on past pot convictions

Marijuana convictions that predate current Colorado law could be sealed under a bipartisan proposal being floated inside the Capitol — a move, say some lawmakers and marijuana advocates, that could potentially impact thousands of Coloradans. The proposal, sponsored by Sens. Jessie Ulibarri, D-Westminster, and Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins, allows anyone convicted of a marijuana offense, which would now be legal under Amendment 64, to have their records sealed. Also, a draft of the bill says that a person convicted of “any other marijuana offense” beyond the scope of Amendment 64 would also be allowed to file a petition with a…

Vegetable gardeners, pot growers boosting hydroponics supply

Hydroponic and indoor grow operation supply companies have been opening and expanding since medical marijuana laws in Colorado allowed individuals to grow plants for personal use. Colorado gardeners trying to grow healthy organic vegetables out of season are hoping that the increased competition and research will help them grow their food plants better and more cheaply as well. Amendment 64 to the Colorado constitution, which legalized recreational use of marijuana under state law, allows adults to grow up to three mature cannabis plants and three immature plants in a private, locked space. Before Amendment 64 was passed, medical marijuana patients…

Denver 4/20 rally mellow; police ticket dozens

As the sun rose at Red Rocks Amphitheater on Sunday, David Garcia — high on the holy spirit as well as just plain high — contemplated the unusual convergence of prayer and pot in Colorado this year. “It’s a beautiful sight,” said Garcia, who was raised Christian and who said he smoked marijuana before going to the annual sunrise service. “Man didn’t create weed. God created weed.” Sunday was the first time in 11 years that Easter and the day marijuana enthusiasts call 4/20 fell on the same day. And perhaps the most whipsaw 14 hours in Red Rocks history…

Poll: Colorado buzzed about marijuana; support gay marriage 2 to 1

Coloradans approve of marijuana, but not so much when it comes to elected officials using the mind altering drug. State residents say “marijuana has been good for Colorado” by a margin of 52 to 38 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday morning. But 52 percent of voters are “less likely to vote for a candidate for office who smokes marijuana two or three days a week,” the poll found. “Only 3 percent are more likely to vote for a marijuana-smoking candidate, while 43 percent say it would not affect their vote.” POLL RESULTS: Colorado voters feel good about…

This Is Why Marijuana Should Be Legal Everywhere

A Gallup poll released on Tuesday reveals that for the first time in history, Americans are more in favor of legalizing marijuana than criminalizing it. 2013 has markedly been a successful year for marijuana legalization, with Colorado and Washington both passing laws to decriminalize the drug. Now, 58 percent of Americans are in favor allowing the plant to be legal. With the majority of Americans agreeing that marijuana should be legalized, we’ve gathered up eight reasons why those who are still on the fence about the natural plant should possibly reconsider their feelings.     Read More: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/24/marijuana-legalization_n_4151423.html?utm_hp_ref=marijuana

4/20: National Pot Smokers Day

April 20 is “National Pot Smoking Day.” It’s a day where people across the world celebrate in the conspicuous consumption of the magical herb, marijuana. It’s an unofficial counterculture holiday that is based on the simple concept of smoking some cannabis and being happy. The history of its origin is somewhat cloudy. I found some interesting theories into the beginning of this toker’s holiday. The most convincing account was recorded in the San Francisco Chronicle. According to the editor of High Times, Steven Hager, the term “420” originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen…
