Last comment by TommyMarin 4 months, 4 weeks ago.

Facing a March election when the mayor and eight council seats will be up for grabs the Los Angeles City Council repealed their very own ban on medical marijuana dispensaries in an 11-2 vote. Now that according to the latest Zogby Polls pro-cannabis voters are the national majority and outnumber the prohibitionists by 56% to 38% in California the politicians are starting to back pedal. Expect to see a lot more of this in the next few years.

"The Impact Of Smoking Marijuana Regularly On Your Lungs, According To Science"

"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."

Vermont's Attorney General Bill Sorrell Predicts Legislature Will Legalize Marijuana In 2016

"Let me put it this way, I will be surprised if marijuana is not legalized in this next legislative session," he said. There are enough votes for legislation to pass in the Senate, he says, and outgoing Gov. Peter Shumlin has said he would sign a bill.

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin tells state lawmakers to craft bill to legalize recreational marijuana. Vows to work with legislature and sign bill into law. This would make Vermont the first state to legalize through the legislative process rather than by referendum. Marijuana could be legal as early as this summer.

Cannabis ‘Doesn’t Lower IQ Or School Grades’ – But Smoking Tobacco Does

Previous studies may have been skewed by the fact that teenagers tend to smoke the two together.

Researchers used data on 2235 children – mapping tobacco and cannabis use against IQ at age 15 and educational performance at age 16.

After full adjustment, those who had used cannabis 50 times did not differ from never-users on either IQ or educational performance.

The scientists say that there is a ‘robust’ link between smoking cigarettes and lower achievement in education – even when cannabis is excluded.

Study: Alcohol Is The Real Gateway Drug, Not Marijuana

Alcohol is typically the first substance consumed by individuals who report polydrug use later in life, according to data published this month in The Journal of School Health.

Researchers from Texas A&M University and the University of Florida, Gainesville evaluated drug use patterns from a nationally representative sample of 2,835 12th graders.

Authors found that youth use of alcohol most often preceded the use of tobacco or marijuana. They also reported subjects’ age of alcohol initiation is the strongest predictor of later polydrug use.

“Alcohol is the most commonly used substance, and the majority of polysubstance using respondents consumed alcohol prior to tobacco or marijuana initiation,” they reported. “Respondents initiating alcohol use in sixth grade reported significantly greater lifetime illicit substance use and more frequent illicit substance use than those initiating alcohol use in ninth grade or later.”

The Mexican President Promises a Debate on Marijuana Legalization

By Gabriela Gorbea
November 10, 2015 | 4:05 pm

Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto has promised a major national debate to decide the country's position on marijuana legalization, the week after the country's supreme court granted four individuals the permission to cultivate and use the drug.

Peña Nieto instructed the country's interior ministry to organize the debate he said would include experts from multiple disciplines and will define Mexico's stance at next spring's United Nations global drug policy summit as well as the country's own specific policies on the issue.

While he laid out his own personal opposition to legalization — arguing that marijuana consumption leads to harder drugs — the president said he could be persuaded to change his mind.

"I am not the owner of the truth," Peña Nieto said. "I am open to listening to well-documented positions that are scientifically sustainable and could lead to a different position."..."from the human rights perspective you cannot stop anybody, specifically the four people in the case, from using their freedom to consume it if they want."

State Lawmakers To Congress: Butt Out Of Our Marijuana Laws

The National Conference of State Legislatures, the de facto bipartisan group of lawmakers, passed a resolution at its annual meeting Thursday calling on the federal government to amend the Controlled Substances Act to authorize state marijuana laws and on the administration to keep its nose out of state pot policies.

The resolution reaffirms that the federal government cannot use its power to force states, the laboratories of democracy, to criminalize marijuana or hemp, as “doing so would constitute unconstitutional commandeering.”
