New York - News: New York WILL Be The Next Medical Marijuana State New York WILL Be The Next Medical Marijuana State | Just Announced: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released a statement tonight that his state of the union speech next week will include an announcement of an executive order making medical cannabis legal. After this comes to be New York will become the 22nd state where qualified patients will have legal access to cannabis as a therapeutic.   >> Read more << and comment here.


New York - News: New York State Is Set To Loosen Marijuana Laws New York State Is Set To Loosen Marijuana Laws | Albany -- Joining a growing group of states that have loosened restrictions on marijuana, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York plans this week to announce an executive action that would allow limited use of the drug by those with serious illnesses, state officials say. The turnabout by Mr. Cuomo, who had long resisted legalizing medical marijuana, comes as other states are taking increasingly liberal positions on it — most notably Colorado, where thousands have flocked to buy the drug for recreational use since it became legal on Jan. 1. Mr. Cuomo’s plan will be far more restrictive than the laws in Colorado or California, where medical marijuana is available to people with conditions as mild as backaches. It will allow just 20 hospitals across the state to prescribe marijuana to patients with cancer, glaucoma or other diseases that meet standards to be set by the New York State Department of Health. While Mr. Cuomo’s measure falls well short of full legalization, it nonetheless moves New York, long one of the nation’s most punitive states for those caught using or dealing drugs, a significant step closer to policies being embraced by marijuana advocates and lawmakers elsewhere.   >> Read more << and comment here.


New York - News: Editorial: The Marijuana Experiment Editorial: The Marijuana Experiment | On New Year’s Day, government-licensed recreational marijuana shops opened in Colorado, the first place in the world to regulate the drug “from seed to sale.” Later in 2014, marijuana retailers will open in Washington State. As public opinion shifts away from prohibition, these two states will serve as test cases for full-on legalization. Here’s what to watch for in the early stages of this experiment: THE FATE OF THE BLACK MARKET One of the basic arguments in favor of legalization is that it could eliminate the black market and create new tax revenue. But it’s not clear how quickly and to what extent this will actually happen. Marijuana sold at retail shops that pay taxes may well cost more than illegal marijuana, potentially keeping off-the-books dealers in business. UNDER-AGE SMOKING When the Justice Department announced in August that it would not sue to block state laws legalizing marijuana, James Cole, the deputy attorney general, emphasized that local governments must employ “strong and effective regulatory” systems. To avoid federal intervention, states will have to prove that they’re capable of enforcing bans on selling the drug to anyone under 21. Roughly 36 percent of 12th graders reported having used marijuana in 2013. From a public-health standpoint, it will be important to monitor whether youth usage rates in Colorado and Washington diverge from those in other states. MARKETING Washington banned marijuana ads near schools, libraries and playgrounds. In Colorado, marijuana vendors may run ads in print media only if there is “reliable evidence” that no more than 30 percent of the readership is under 21. But these policies may not be sufficient to satisfy the Justice Department, which said that it might step in if it saw marijuana “marketed in a manner to appeal to minors.” The Justice Department may not look kindly on THC-infused sweets, like cannabis gummy bears and brownies.   >> Read more << and comment here.

Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in New York.

  Info on New York and Medical Cannabis 

New York does NOT have a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW. Yet.

Lawmakers in the state Senate and Assembly introduced legislation this week to legalize the state-sanctioned use and distribution of medicinal marijuana. The bills’ sponsors are confident that they have the necessary votes to pass medical marijuana law reform in both chambers. Further, according to news reports, Gov. Patterson is also privately supportive of medical marijuana law reform. If you reside in New York, please consider assisting this campaign by going here and by contacting your elected officials here.

New York - Status, Medical Use If you’d like to see a Medical Cannabis bill introduced, please ask your elected officials to introduce one.   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/new-york/ - for info and resources. Click here for >>> more Contacts, here for >>> more News.


ACTION; Get involved in the movement for safe and legal access to medical cannabis today. Our power comes from our collective action. Whether it's calling Congress, attending rallies, organizing a local activity or chapter, signing an online petition, or supporting federal defendants, take action today!   There are a number of medical cannabis (marijuana) bills in play in states across the US.   Here we network on Ways and Means anyone can help with the effort to make each a medical marijuana state. We need to get the word out and people contacting reps and officials and get this legislation into law. Also, lets not forget efforts at the Federal level.

South Dakota - Action, Medical Marijuana Patients NETWORK and Spread The Word, both On-Line and Off (!)   ON-LINE, You can tell everybody in cyber-space by e-mailing a link to this website to them and/or (OFF-LINE> printing off the info and handing out where possible / necessary. Also phone call and read off and/or visit and hand deliver the info. You can take literature with you and approach businesses, organizations and even people on the street while you're out and about. Wear your pot-leaf shirt and register voters, as feasible. Gather signatures for any related petitions that are happening at the time as well.

This is a chain e-mail you can't refuse. Unlike most, this will actually help you - and a whole buncha others - just by passing it on. Cannabis consumer or not - from the folks just trying to take care of themselves or a loved one to those who simply see the expensive, immoral waste of making war on the sick and dying - everyone is affected by this issue.

To accomplish this you need to first click on the following links and send a message to all the reps and media you can on the issue. Then get everybody else to do the same. And follow up.

To do this you need to tell everybody you know. And can confide in. Then/or anonymously tell everybody you don't know - or can't confide in. Yet.

Tell everybody else by Letters-to-the-Editor, displaying signage at street corners and over-passes (wear trenchcoat, fedora and sunglasses if afraid of exposure), and/or anonymously leaving literature and posting on-line at places where people are likely to find it. Coffeeshops are good places to leave printed material and you can go to the websites of the local newspapers to post items as well. More ideas and supporting tools via the links below.

    New York - Status and Resources, local: Albany Albany, NY, New York | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5 --- Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in New York state, and so is any activity related to marijuana (possession, cultivation, and of course dealing). For small amounts (less than 25 grams) first time offenders, there is no Incarceration, and a fee of $100. Punishment for possessing a small but commercial quantity is 1-3 years (not less than 1, not more than 3). Law Enforcement: I can’t speak for NYC, but here in Albany some of the cops are cool, but most will bring you in. I’ve never been in, but my frinds have, and i know guys who gone done. With Pataki’s right wing Bush loving ass, he fully suports the archaic Rockefellar laws, so local gov’t tries to look good for him. We need to get Spitzer in there…. 13th midicinal state? another reporter added: “Cops are always looking for dealers, and it is has become somewhat of a silly game. They seem to hassle parole violators as they are easy targets.” Police presence in Albany is relatively light in most areas since it is primarily concentrated in the Arbor Hill area. ...

    New York - Status and Resources, local: Buffalo Buffalo, New York | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5 --- Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in New York state, and so is any activity related to marijuana (possession, cultivation, and of course dealing). Updates from criminal justice officials in NYC:

    “1- By law, you’re supposed to see a judge within 24 hours of arrest

    2- 1st time small amount offenders are almost always offered to have their cases adjourned 1 year and dismissed so long as they are not rearrested. IN all likelihood rearrests in other jurisdictions will not have the case reoppened.

    3- It is not a crime to posses small amounts, I do not have the exact weight off hand. It is only a crime if you pass a threshold weight, you have your weed in public view or it is actually burning.

    4- They will arrest and prosecute you for residue: e.g., an empty pipe or bag.”

    and a later update: “Apparently one of our local senators recently recovered from prostate cancer, so now his eyes have oppened toward medical marijuana legalization, N.Y. has also made some decriminilization efforts, i.e. less than 25 grams, (almost an ounce), you will get off with a “violation” and a $100.00 fine.” Law Enforcement: Marijuana is technically illegal and most of the time you won’t get busted for personal stashes. Pushers get hassled often. It’s not a good idea to walk down the street smoking. But I have smoked in broad daylight. It really depends on the cop. And most cops will go harder on a minority than a white. Buffalo only has one officer car so they’ll be less likely to stop and mess with some teens just because they’re stoned. Our latest reporter tells us: The police in the city of Buffalo basically do not care about weed. They have more important things to do. They have actually given me back a blunt, thrown the weed out and let me go, they also told me one time “thanks for the free smoke” I ride around regularly in my car smoking blunts it’s one of my favorite things to do. The only people who really have a problem with weed and cops are the sellers, which in buffalo is alot of bud houses and teenage hustlers on the street. ...

    New York - Status and Resources, local: New York New York, New York | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: “Possession of 25 grams or less of marijuana is punishable by a fine of $100 for the first offense. For the second offense, the penalty increases to a $200 fine and for subsequent offenses the fine increases to $250 and a maximum of 15 days in jail time may be imposed. [for a third offense the website shows it as a potential misdemeanor of up to 5 days jail time and/or fine up to $250] Possession of greater than 25 grams or possession of any amount in public where the marijuana is burning or open to public view, is a class B misdemeanor and is punishable by up to three months in jail and a fine up to $500. For possession of greater than two ounces, the penalty increases to a possible one year in jail and a fine up to $1,000. Law Enforcement: Cops patrol teh areas. No DT’s (undercovers) sell weed. If you have out of state plates, don;t get surprised if you get stopped. When you do leave uptown, stick to the main streets, NOT the side streets Marijuana is illegal in NY, and that is enforced by the police – NY Police have been busting people for extremely small quantities for about the last 8 years. If NY cops catch you with ANY weed they absolutley will arrest you and detain you in a NY jail for 48 hours. back in the 70?s, 80?s and early 90?s they would let you go but this is no longer the case. There are special police squads in NY who’s sole purpose is to find people smoking weed or drinking beer in public and arrtes them. Everyone who lives here and smokes knows about it. ...

    New York - Status and Resources, local: Woodstock Woodstock, NY, New York | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: Typical New York State Laws Apply. Possession is largely decriminalized. Selling and Manufacturing is not. Law enforcement: Mostly local police are around but as long as you are not violent, they will seldom mess with you. Police are like anyone else, some do not want to do their jobs unless they have to, others are gung-ho and will arrest anyone at the first opportunity. Don’t make the police have to do their job and you’ll be fine. Where to buy marijuana: Where not? It’s Woodstock! Hang out, be social, and ask around. There aren’t a ton of sources, but most fellow smokers will let you chill with little if any questions asked. If you hang out enough you might become privied to certain information. Check out the drum circles, and talk to fellow shoppers in certain and browsers. Don’t be aggressive…just chill. There is a very laid back vibe and if you are too gung-ho in your pursuits then you’re going to turn people off. The Village Green is called the Village Green for a reason…find out where it is, bring yourself and just chill. Keep your ear out for events, shows, and gatherings at nearby hotspots. Marijuana prices: Not cheap, but all types can be found. Usually 40+ for an 1/8 and that is the smallest quantity you’ll find. Every once in a while some rarities can be found or otherwise observed with the senses…$500+ for a lid. ... Visit: http://webehigh.org/woodstock-ny-new-york/

Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Multiple places have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States; however, cannabis is illegal under federal law. Gonzales v. Raich (2005) held in a 6-3 decision that the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution allowed the federal government to ban the use of cannabis, including medical use even if local laws allow it. Most places that have decriminalized cannabis have civil fines, drug education, or drug treatment in place of incarceration and/or criminal charges for possession of small amounts of cannabis, or have made various cannabis offenses the lowest priority for law enforcement.

We’re kicking off 2008 with bold plans for change. Rockefeller Drug Laws: This year, DPA is spearheading an effort to go beyond the Rockefeller Drug Laws. We believe there needs to be a new paradigm in New York regarding our drug policies—one that takes us beyond repeal, and asks “What comes after repeal of these failed laws?” We need a public health approach to drug use and abuse—expanding community based drug treatment, reducing criminal penalties for simple drug possession, restoring judicial discretion, and utilizing our public health system to address key drug policy issues. The criminal justice approach to drug use and abuse has failed—a failure embodied by the Rockefeller Drug Laws. The laws have promoted institutional racism, failed to reduce drug abuse in our communities, contributed to mass incarceration, and wasted taxpayer dollars and human lives.

New York, News - Comprehensive medical marijuana bill gains momentum, while Gov. Cuomo proposes unworkable plan Comprehensive medical marijuana bill gains momentum, while Gov. Cuomo proposes unworkable plan - Last Update: April 9, 2014 | Until this January, Gov. Andrew Cuomo opposed medical marijuana. While he’s finally joined the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers who believe marijuana should be available to the seriously ill, his plan is unworkable. The governor’s proposal would reportedly revive a restrictive 1980 medical marijuana law that would allow some hospitals in New York to implement the limited use of marijuana for patients in sense- or life-threatening situations. Unlike the medical marijuana bill sponsored by Assemblyman Richard Gottfried and Senator Diane Savino, Gov. Cuomo’s proposal would not create an effective program. >> Visit - www.MPP.org/states/new-york/ <<

The 1980 law only allows patients to access marijuana from a limited number of hospitals, which would dispense marijuana that was either obtained from a federally approved source or that is illegal to dispense under federal law. But the federal government has refused to provide marijuana even to some short-term FDA-approved studies, and there is no reason to think it will approve marijuana for longer-term patient access. Meanwhile, hospitals will not break federal law by distributing unapproved marijuana. Fortunately, a growing number of Senators are supportive of an effective medical marijuana program, including Republican Sens. Mark Grisanti (R, IP - Buffalo), George Maziarz (R - Newfane), Joe Robach (R, C, IP – Rochester), and Tom O’Mara (R, C – Big Flats, Elmira). Please email your legislators today and urge them to support Assemblyman Gottfried and Senator Savino’s medical marijuana bill. Then, ask Gov. Cuomo to work with the legislature to enact comprehensive medical marijuana reform. >> Visit - www.MPP.org/states/new-york/ <<

Gov. Cuomo Abandons Push to Reform Marijuana Penalties | In addition to failing to propose a real solution for medical marijuana patients, Gov. Cuomo has abandoned his push for more just marijuana penalties. Gov. Cuomo recently announced he will cease his push to replace jail time with a civil fine for the possession of small amounts of marijuana. In recent years, the “public view” exception to New York’s 1977 decriminalization law has been abused by police officers. New York City police have told tens of thousands of people, mostly young people of color, to empty their pockets — thus making them criminals once their marijuana was in public view. That might finally change this year, as the Assembly voted May 29 to approve a bill that would close this loophole, but the bill (A6716) did not advance in the Senate. Unlawful arrests of individuals for the possession of small amounts of marijuana have continued, despite Gov. Cuomo’s claim that the recent declaration of some stop-and-frisk searches as unconstitutional eliminates the need for comprehensive decriminalization reform in New York.

New York’s weak "decrim" law | New York is one of the 14 states that penalize first-offense possession of a modest amount of marijuana with a fine instead of possible jail time (marijuana possession is legal in two other states and possession in one's home is allowed under Alaska's constitution). First-offense possession of up to 25 grams of marijuana is punishable by a $100 civil citation, although first-offense possession of between 25 grams and two ounces carries a $500 fine and up to three months in jail. As was mentioned earlier, law enforcement have been able to exploit a loophole in the decriminalization law by getting an arrestee to expose his or her marijuana as "open to public view," which converts the conduct into an offense for which individuals can be arrested. This has resulted in New York having the second highest per capita marijuana arrest rate in the U.S., at almost 93,000 people per year.

What’s more, these arrests have been racially disproportionate — a report by the ACLU found that in 2010, blacks were 4.52 times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana in New York. The Drug Policy Alliance and other allies have campaigned to fix this abuse, and in September 2011, New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly issued a memo to police not to arrest people for possession that is not in public view. Unfortunately, arrests have continued. Stay connected | Thank you for supporting MPP.

New York - News, State Senator Pushing Bill To Legalize And Tax Marijuana In NY State Senator Pushing Bill To Legalize And Tax Marijuana In NY | State Senator Liz Krueger is pushing ahead for something even bigger: “It is my intention as a New York State senator to soon introduce a law that would actually decriminalize, regulate and tax marijuana in New York,” she told a crowd this week on the Upper East Side. According to CapitalNY, Krueger unveiled a draft of her bill, "Marijuana, Regulation, and Taxation Act.” Under it, NY adults would be allowed ot grow up to six pot plants at home; they could buy and sell weed just like alcohol; weed sales would be regulated by the New York State Liquor Authority; drivers wouldn't be allowed to operate vehicles under the influence; and pot would be taxed heavily, around $50 an ounce.   >> Read more -and-   >> here too! <<

Governor Cuomo had previously announced his support for a similar legislative proposal in 2012, but state lawmakers failed to act on it.

Legalizing of Marijuana Raises Health Concerns

In the ’60s, marijuana was a hallmark of the counterculture, along with free love, bell bottoms, long hair and bandannas. But marijuana has had the most staying power. This month, in a remarkable first, the recreational use of marijuana became legal (depending on your definition) in Colorado and Washington. Over a dozen other states have decriminalized possession of small amounts, and Massachusetts recently became the 18th state to allow its use for medicinal purposes. While marijuana can be addictive, scientists generally agree that fewer than 10 percent of marijuana smokers become dependent on the drug, compared with 15 percent for alcohol, 23 percent for heroin and 32 percent for tobacco. Marijuana does contain carcinogens, including tar and other toxins similar to those found in tobacco, but people generally do not smoke marijuana in the same amounts as cigarettes.   Read more>> - on this Item.


New York - News, Medical Marijuana News and Facts, by MedicalMJ.org MedicalMJ.org - Medical Marijuana News and Facts | US NY: No Cause For Marijuana Case, But Enough For Child New York Times, 18 Aug 2011 - The police found about 10 grams of marijuana, or about a third of an ounce, when they searched Penelope Harris's apartment in the Bronx last year. The amount was below the legal threshold for even a misdemeanor, and prosecutors declined to charge her. But Ms. Harris, a mother whose son and niece were home when she was briefly in custody, could hardly rest easy. The police had reported her arrest to the state's child welfare hot line, and city caseworkers quickly arrived and took the children away. Visit - http://www.medicalmj.org/

New York, News - Marijuana and Medical Marijuana - The New York Times Marijuana and Medical Marijuana - The New York Times; News about marijuana and medical marijuana. Commentary and archival information about marijuana from The New York Times. - Updated: Feb. 11, 2011 | Marijuana, whose botanical name is cannabis, has been used by humans for thousands of years. It was classified as an illegal drug by many countries in the 20th century. But over the past two decades, there has been a growing movement to legalize it, primarily for medical purposes. Medical marijuana use has surged in the 15 states and the District of Columbia that allow its use. But states and cities are also wrestling with the question of what medical marijuana is, or should be.

The Montana House of Representatives voted in February 2011 to repeal the state’s six-year-old medical marijuana law. The 63-to-37 vote, largely along party lines in the Republican-controlled chamber, pushed Montana to the front lines of a national debate about social policy, economics and health regarding medical marijuana use Montana's House speaker, Mike Milburn, a Republican and sponsor of the repeal bill, who said he thought that the arguments about medical use had been a pretext for encouraging recreational use and creating a path to full legalization. He said he feared gang drug wars in Montana’s cities and debilitation of its youth. If the legislation is passed by the Montana Senate, it would face an uncertain fate on the desk of Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat, who has said he believes the laws need to be tightened, but he has not taken a position on repeal.

New York - news, Medical Marijuana on the Move in Albany and NYC New York: Medical Marijuana on the Move in Albany and NYC | A bill that would legalize the use of medical marijuana in New York state passed one of its first legislative hurdles Wednesday at the state capitol in Albany, while two days earlier in New York City a resolution expressing the city council's support for a state medical marijuana bill also moved forward. The medical marijuana bill in Albany, A0576, was okayed by the Assembly's Health Committee on an 18-6 vote a day after dramatic and sometimes wrenching testimony before the committee, including some from surprising sources. "If you have ever seen anyone on their deathbed, dying in agony, screaming in pain every day as I had with my father who had cancer, the risks of smoking marijuana are outweighed by the therapeutic benefits," conservative Assemblyman Robert Prentiss (R-Colonie) told his colleagues.

The bill is rapidly picking up bipartisan support in the Democratic-dominated Assembly, with 41 Democrat and seven Republican cosponsors. It is now headed for the Assembly Codes committee, then the Ways and Means committee before coming up for a floor vote. "We are on our way," said Vince Marrone, who is working the issue as a paid lobbyist for the Marijuana Policy Project (http://www.mpp.org). "We got through that first committee in good shape, and the Codes committee, which must review all legislation that impacts the criminal justice system, already approved it once last year," he told DRCNet. "And we have Republicans on the Ways and Means committee who will vote for this, so I think it is safe to say we will have this bill on the floor of the Assembly by the end of the year. The question then becomes whether the leadership will act on it." Visit - http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle-old/326/nymedmj.shtml

  some HISTORY  

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

"New York Officials Request Waiver Granting Children with Epilepsy and Seizures Access to Medical Cannabis - New York officials are pressing for immediate access to a strain of medical cannabis before legalization is implemented in the state. Since the medical cannabis program will not be operational until early 2016, New York State regulators have urged the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to grant the state access to a strain of medical cannabis known as “Charlotte’s Web”. US Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand wrote a letter to US Attorney General Eric Holder, requesting a waiver that would allow cannabidiol, from the cannabis plant, known as cannabis oil, to be transported across state lines from Colorado into New York State.

"Debunking the White House’s Reefer Mad Reaction to the NYT - by Mitch Earleywine July 29, 2014 | The New York Times has joined the majority of US citizens in the call for a more rational marijuana policy. The White House responded with an attempt to explain why a taxed and regulated market is no “silver bullet solution.” Alluding to The Lone Ranger probably wasn’t a great idea, but I think they mean that this isn’t a panacea for every problem related to cannabis. Of course, all our other legislation is perfect, so we shouldn’t change this policy until we have a solution with all advantages and no disadvantages.

Our government says that this use of law enforcement and court time targets marijuana users because the plant alters brain development, impedes academic achievement, impairs driving, and creates addiction. The tacit assumption, that prohibition is going to prevent all of these problems, is tenable at best. (We’ve had police officers whip out the handcuffs over 18 million times since 1981. From 1995 until now, we’ve had at least one marijuana arrest per minute. The plant is more available than ever.) But let’s forget about how prohibition isn’t going to help and address the White House’s Furious Four Factors. - FYI: Dr. Mitch Earleywine is the author of Understanding Marijuana (Oxford University Press) and is the Chair of NORML’s Board of Directors.

Sure, he said, the government should remove penalties for possession, use and cultivation of small amounts. He did not favor making outlaws of people for enjoying a drug that is less injurious than alcohol or tobacco. But he worried that a robust commercial marketplace would inevitably lead to much more consumption. You don’t have to be a prohibitionist to recognize that pot, especially in adolescents and very heavy users, can seriously mess with your brain. So I was interested to learn, 11 years later, that Kleiman is leading the team hired to advise Washington State as it designs something the modern world has never seen: a fully legal commercial market in cannabis.

The Marijuana Conference was attended by a serious group of investors, entrepreneurs, legislators, physicians, attorneys, activists, lobbyists, and business owners. If you missed the event, you can still benefit from all of the education with the conference audio kit. For only $395 you’ll get a CD featuring the audio from all of the panel discussions and presentations and a copy of the Event Book & Resource Guide.
