New MA Marijuana Bills, Medical and Recriminalization

The good news first, medical marijuana bill on file and sponsored by reps in MA.

Link to MA House Medical Marijuana Bill


Also positive is a new tax, regulation, legalization bill


The awful from Scott Brown (pictured to the right).
Scott Brown seeks to re-criminalize marijuana in the car, with get this a $1000 fine, twice as much as before it was decriminalized. Ten times more than what voters voted for.

Ignoring the 65% of those who voted for decrim and a $100 fine. His bill re-criminalizes, takes driver licenses away. Read the bill, check the links. The sunshine on the Brown foolishness is it appears to have less support in the Senate when compared to the larger number of co-sponsors for the house medical bill.

Recriminalizing marijuana in MA, Scott Brown attempts to subvert the will of 65% of MA voters.

State Senator Scott Brown is holding facebook events to raise money for his campaign, let him know that you are not happy with his new bill that seeks to overthrow democracy, the will of voters, re-criminalizing marijuana in MA.

Let us also thank the reps that signed onto the medical marijuana bill and get those who haven't to support it.

Rep. Bob Hedlund, co-sponsored the medical marijuana bill, thank him for it on facebook.

Contact your state reps/senators and Governor Deval Patrick to sign on to publicly support this medical marijuana bill in MA.

Thank you to Steven Epstein with MassCann/NORML for the alert/updates.


Follow up: The facebook for Scott Brown's campaign event deleted a good half dozen messages from people who are not happy about the re-crim bill. They deleted the comments and closed it down, Senator Scott Brown's facebook fundraiser. You can still view the page but you are no longer able to leave a comment. Minor league, Mickey Mouse move by his campaign. Way to hear from voters!

  4. With the Obama admin already saying it will essentially leave pot laws to the states...marijuana will quickly become a non-issue especially as law enforcements struggle with limited budgets. Perhaps I'm being premature, but I believe this is the first step to real legalization.

  6. I am so sick of talking about this crap. I along with thousands of people in this Country can't get jobs or pay bills and this is what we are still talking about. Let the people smoke their pot, we voted on it. Now get the fucking economy fixed so I can get off unemployment for fuck sake. Did anyone else notice AIG sent billions of our bail out money to overseas banks? I like pot just as much as the next guy but it's my brake from life not my call to arms and Senator Brown I know you have much better things you could be doing with your time then this. Fix the economy, embrace Marijuana like Cali is trying and maybe that's a right step in all directions. But we'll see how that turns out cuz that's just to much thinking outside the box for Mr. and Mrs. John Q. American living in Beaver Cleaver Vill.

  7. Maybe I misunderstood the story, but what I read was that he wanted to re-criminalize it if your in a car. I support legalization, but not for people driving.

  8. Look at him you can just tell he is narcissistic and is doing this to get recognition from some one, either its his wife, his mistress (or gay dude), the general public or the secret society who he belongs to who is daring him to do something taboo to humiliate or manipulate the public to show how powerless and in need of government we really are. Check his background I bet you can find some weird scandal to distract him. Showing their weird and weak side to the public is the only way to stop a politician. Spend the thousand dollars you would have to shed out to the court on a private investigator.

  9. "Maybe I misunderstood the story, but what I read was that he wanted to re-criminalize it if your in a car. I support legalization, but not for people driving."

    Yes, if you have one joint in your car, you are busted under this. And you can be dead sober, a non user, with a medical user in the car. It's blanket penalty. Fine for you to be against having cannabis in the car, but I call you a hypocrite if you don't do the same for all pills, prescribed or not. What difference does it make if grandma is bringing her medicine home from the pharmacy or the dealer? None. But if they are impaired, we already have OUI laws for any substances that intoxicates. This is not about driving under influence. It's recrim of marijuana in the car, where 90% of arrests took place and often just people driving dead sober pulled over with a joint for a party, day of camping for later when they got home or out for a long while.

  10. If anyone took the time to read Sen. Brown's bill they might note that its a civil motor vehicle infraction not a crime. It's an addition the open container law which is intended to discourage drinking and driving. The same reasoning applies to weed. The higher penalties relate to the difficulty in detecting and prosecuting drugged driving cases compared to drinking and driving.

    So yeah I smoke and drive and I kind of don't want to get in trouble for it, and maybe $1,000 is high "ha ha i said high" but really it's not smart to smoke and drive and maybe we should have penaltys in place. I'm just saying.

  14. I think if I read the bill correctly it does say in the passanger compartment...correct? I really don't see a problem with that. Its not like it says anywhere in the vehicle. It could go one step further and mention a locked container. The bill is very vague but not he worst I have seen, you should read some of the firearms bills if you think that one is bad!

  15. One more thing,  it seems you want to tar and feather Mr. Brown for something that he NEVER SAID OR DID!  Don't let your hatred of all things that have an "R" after their name cloud your ability to read and comprehend.
    If I missed something else he said please show me, but what I see does not relect the hatred in the posting.  G

    I have read most of the post and people PLEASE JUST READ THE BILL AND THE HIGHLIGHTS 'IT REALLY SAYS KEEP IT IN THE TRUNK AND NOT WITHIN REACH[ KINDA] ITS  BADLY WRITTEN AND COULD BE BETTER BUT JUST READ IT!.....................

  16. Gary, if I'm unaware of this new law and am arrested after the media trumpeted decrim, is that fair?

    Is it fair, if I'm the driver and straight and unknown to me a passenger is carrying a pipe or some pot, we all get arrested and I lose my license? That's fair?

    No. I've read the bill and heard from Mr. Brown's staff, I don't support the bill and call it as it is. BS.

    OUI laws exist, enforce those.

    And being a Republican has nothing to do with it sir. I'm not a Democrat. I've only voted Democrat once in the last 12+ years. Voted for more Republicans than Dems. Worked on a Republican campaign for US Congress against Democrat Ed Markey. I like Bob Hedlund, pictured above. You know what party, Mr. Hedlund is with? The Republican party.....

  17. HR Puffin Stuff, penalties already exist for smoking and driving and they are much harsh than this bill. OUI exists for marijuana. This does nothing but penalize people who are not driving high but didn't know it would now be illegal again to have some in the car or a passenger unknown to them carrying it.... This bill isn't about stopping stoned driving but catching those who are straight with some weed in their car. I sometimes transport a little medical cannabis in the car, I never smoke and drive....

  18. Wow,. disinfo galore, here. It is a criminal offense. Confirmed by more than a few practicing lawyers! If you are arrested for open container in MA, it's a criminal offense! So because we cant prove you were high, we're going to arrest all people again. Even those who aren't. Brilliant! Why not just arrest all people driving cars? Some might be getting by for other things, too...

  19. No I see where your coming from and am a little definsive in the state of Blue I guess. Like I said the bill is badly written WAY to many "what if's".
    I hope that you would look at the way Brown is potrayed in your statements and unless the rest rest our lifetimes your OK with another TAX AND SPEND eletist in Washington I would encourage Brown. Perfect NO WAY, LESSER OF THE 2 EVILS YOU BET.  Just my 2 cents.

     This country needs change and fast! We have already been promised one thing and guess what?

    Just for the record I am an Indy like some Dem and some Repub so I can go both ways :-P   I got here by surfing and the first impresion was well you guessed it..................

    Thanks for the reply....................G

  20. Cool, I hear you. I don't like Coakley either. Part of me wants to vote Brown but he won't let me. Sorry. I'm voting for Joe Kennedy, the third party candidate. It may be a throw away but maybe the GOP next time will run somebody who isn't a moralizer.

  21. Here's just one example...............................quote..........Recriminalizing marijuana in MA, Scott Brown attempts to subvert the will of 65% of MA voters................................come on

    So do you really think thats a fair statement?  Do you think sending potential voters to Coakly with those misleading statemnets is correct? Then Brown removed his comment section from facebook after all of the attacks from misleading a misleading statementt. You know thats not what the bill says, and it seems a good part of the audience will no read it for themselves, personaly I call them "Sheep" the will go right off the cliff following what?  Even some of the people that voted Obama are starting to backpedal and scrtch their head, now its to late, if they would have researched they would have known what they were getting, "SHEEP"...................... :) .

  22. Absolutely it's a fair statement. That's exactly the bill he backed.

    The marijuana reform audience is more savy than the average, we read the bills.

    And most of us don't like Martha Coakley either and we've written much about her opposition to Question 2. So I'm sure you think that's fair but not when you go after your guy?
