Majority of Canadians support legal pot, but worry organized crime will continue

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:06

Marijuana laws have come nearly, but not quite, full circle in Washington. Farmers grew hemp, one version of the cannabis plant, as a cash crop.

So far, the federal government has kept its word about not meddling with state pot laws.

If both attempting to legislate and declassifying the drug are out, then what is there to do?

It's time we think openly about marijuana and stop mislabeling it.

At the time, the federal government didn't have a national law against marijuana, requiring only that products with cannabis be clearly labeled under a series of anti-poisoning laws.

Cannabis possession is illegal in most countries under a 1925 treaty called the International Opium Convention, and trafficking can carry the death penalty in extreme cases.

Local police and administrative officials rushed to the spot and pacified the situation. The students later blocked traffic on the highway near Banihal.

52% of the more than 1,100 people surveyed have previously tried marijuana. As more countries and states move forward, the end of marijuana prohibition is looking ever more likely.

Marijuana has been a big topic for politicians this year. A slim majority, or 55 per cent, believed that organized crime would still find a way to profit from the trade.

"This is our industry's Oktoberfest and New Year's Eve all combined into one", said Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc., a California-based online purveyor of hemp oil who's offering a 4/20 discount of 35%. Researchers have found that marijuana has medical benefits for cancer patients and individuals suffering from other chronic pain, but there is not a lot of research on long-term and other recreational use.

Initiative 692, which passed with 59 percent of the vote, allowed marijuana to be used medicinally for "terminal or debilitating conditions" with a doctor's advice. He could follow the (mostly) hands-off approach that the Obama administration did. And I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana - so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that's only slightly less very bad. Canada legal marijuana plan needs public health focus. Despite those changes on the local and state level, the federal government continues to categorize marijuana as a Schedule I drug.

Rhode Island lawmakers who support legal marijuana legislation insist they have the votes to pass it and are talking about allowing recreational pot sales even before MA is ready in mid-2018.

A June 2015 Fairleigh Dickinson University/Public Mind Poll found 49 percent support personal pot use, 46 percent opposed it.

White House denies misleading public on carrier destination
The U.S.is trying to ratchet up pressure on North Korea to abandon its n. But it was now "proceeding to the Western Pacific as ordered", it said.

I-502's provision that allowed adults to consume recreational marijuana without fear of state penalty went into effect on December 6, 2012.

At least for now, recreational marijuana seems to have been snuffed out in Connecticut's legislature, and the campaign to legalize pot is facing a variety of delays and potential roadblocks in other New England states.

As of now, there are eight states that have legalized recreational marijuana and 22 more (counting the District) that have some kind of medical legalization in place.

While the states should have some input on the federal government's direction, the issue would best be solved by Congress. Lawmakers should legalize the drug and allow enforcement officers to focus anti-drug efforts upon more insidious substances and the ongoing opioid crisis. There's a 28 percent tax in Colorado and a 37 percent tax In Washington. The state could tax the sale of marijuana, and making it so that only locally grown cannabis can be sold would stimulate Delaware's agriculture industry. A year after the recreational pot shops opened, the Legislature had approved merging the two under the Liquor Control Board, which was renamed the Liquor and Cannabis Board.

Admittedly, it is unlikely that Congress will change federal marijuana laws anytime soon.
