Thu, 15 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Tucson Weekly, 15 Jun 2017 - Despite the upheaval of the current presidential administration, some things just haven't changed, like acting DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg's Obama-era insistence last month that "marijuana is not medicine." Though he also stated that he'd "be the last person to stand in the way" if medical uses of marijuana rise through the FDA process. (Here's where we count on Sue Sisley's research in Phoenix.)



CN BC: Editorial: Making P.G. Pot Central

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Prince George Citizen, 15 Jun 2017 - Five hundred years ago, back when Scotch was just whisky, almost everybody in Scotland could make and sell it. It was only 200 years ago, when the government started taxing sales, allowed the licensed distilleries to grow and shut down the bootleggers that Scotch started to become a thing. Today, of course, whisky is made around the world but only whisky from Scotland is allowed to call itself Scotch. The similarities between whisky in Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries and marijuana in Prince George in 2017 are many. The residents of a somewhat isolated northern region that's not too far from major cities are heavy producers and consumers of a beloved intoxicant. The government decides to legalize the product, partly to recognize the will of the people, but mostly to turn it into a lucrative tax revenue stream.

US NJ: Editorial: State Could Ease Their Pain

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Herald News, 19 Jun 2017 - Medical patients in severe pain seek comfort in a variety of ways. Some remedies, they find, work better than others. Some medications, they find, are less addictive than others. These are factors that must be weighed as New Jersey considers the pros and cons of whether to expand its list of "debilitating medical conditions" for those who wish to participate in the state's medical marijuana program. More than 12,500 residents have been registered under the program since it was legalized in 2010, yet many more patients and caregivers want to participate and say the state's existing rules are too restrictive. We agree.



US: Oped: Marijuana Legalization Must Be Fair And Equitable

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Herald News, 19 Jun 2017 - New Jersey is gearing up for an intense campaign for marijuana legalization. Senate Bill 3195 and Assembly Bill 4872, which would legalize marijuana in New Jersey, have been introduced by state Sen. Nicholas P. Scutari, D-Union, and Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, D-Mercer. The Drug Policy Alliance commends the sponsors for their leadership on this issue and we will be working with them to ensure that the final legislation contains provisions missing from the bill that are essential to establishing a fair and equitable marijuana market and repairing the disproportionate harm that marijuana prohibition has inflicted on communities of color. To highlight the need for these provisions, the Drug Policy Alliance is releasing a short video, made in collaboration with Brave New Films, which explores the current and historical impacts of marijuana prohibition on communities of color. The video features racial and social justice advocates from across New Jersey.
