 Senator Sanders Co-Sponsors The Marijuana Justice Act


Today, Senator Bernie Sanders joined Senator Cory Booker on a live stream for a conversation about ending prohibition and co-sponsoring the Marijuana Justice Act. But they cant do it alone. Right now, 33 members of Congress have put their name on the House and Senate versions of this legislation, but we still have a long way to go. Politicians are starting to realize that legalization is not only good policy, but good politics. Send a message to your federal officials and tell them to put their name on this legislation too. The ongoing enforcement of cannabis prohibition....

 Marijuana Now Decriminalized in New Mexicos Most Populated City Just in Time for 4/20


Anthony Martinelli

An ordinance decriminalizing the possession of personal amounts of marijuana has officially taken effect in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The new law coincidentally or maybe not takes effect on 4/20, the unofficial cannabis holiday the law officially took effect as the clocks hit midnight MDT. The law taking effect comes a little over two weeks after it was passed by the city council in a 5 to 4 vote, and eight days after it was signed into law by Mayor Tim Keller D. Under the new law, the possession of up to an ounce 28 grams of marijuana is a simple $25 ticket, rather than a misdemeanor punishable by jail time as it was before. The measure was filed by Councilmembers Pat Davi and Isaac Benton. At the end ....

 Trump administration abandons crackdown on legal marijuana
Evan Halper
The Trump administration is abandoning a Justice Department threat to crack down on recreational marijuana in states where it is legal, a move that could enable cannabis businesses in California and other states that have legalized pot to operate without fear of federal raids and prosecution. President Trump personally directed the abrupt retreat, which came at the behest of Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado. White House officials confirmed the policy shift Friday. Trump did not inform Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions in advance of the change in policy, an almost unheard ....

 Maine Legislature Passes Commercial Marijuana Regulations


This week, the Maine House and Senate overwhelmingly passed LD 1719, which would set up Maines adult-use marijuana market. MPP was neutral on the bill, as it removed social club licensing from the initiative voters passed in 2016. LD 1719 also reduced the number of plants adults can cultivate at home from six to three flowering plants. That said, its been 18 months since Maine voters passed Question 1, and it is time that adults had a legal place to purchase marijuana. Given the veto-proof margins that LD 1719 passed by, we are uncertain if Gov. LePage will veto the bill. ....
