Portugal's Drug Experience: New Study Confirms Decriminalization Was a Success

Portugal decriminalized possession of all drugs in 2001. The outcome, after nearly a decade, according to a study published in the November issue of the British Journal of Criminology: less teen drug use, fewer HIV infections, fewer AIDS cases and more drugs seized by law enforcement. Adult drug use rates did slightly increase — but this increase was not greater than that seen in nearby countries that did not change their drug policies. The use of drugs by injection declined.

Willie Nelson busted with weed, again

Willie Nelson arrested for drug possession 

Willie Nelson was detained and arrested for marijuana possession on Friday, on his way back to Austin, after spending Thanksgiving in California, officials said.
Don't they realize he's been deputized to make sure that Al Queda isn't dealing cannabis?
 “By order of the chief executive of this great country of ours, I’m probing Homeland Security and making sure the Taliban ain’t selling no weed here, man,” Willie told The Finite Times counter-culture correspondent Sky Rainspout. “These fellahs in Louisiana passed with flying colors.”

DEA bans K2, Spice and other "fake pot" products

USA Today, DEA bans K2, other 'fake pot' products
WASHINGTON — The DEA used its emergency powers Wednesday to ban K2 and other "fake pot" products that mimic the effects of marijuana.
 
The action by the Drug Enforcement Administration makes it illegal to possess or sell the five chemicals used to make the products for at least one year. The agency and the Department of Health and Human Services will determine whether the chemicals should be permanently added to the federal list of controlled substances considered unsafe, highly abused and without medical use.
How do they ban K2 but tobacco is still legal?

This Saturday, THC Show Covers Maine's Monopoly Medical Marijuana Dispensary Racket

$340 an ounce for medical patients? The rationale? We don't want patients to re-sell their cannabis on the black market for profit! Selling cannabis to patients at black market prices with a dispensary monopoly? This is a potential bigger racket for them than California. No competition. Two directors with Northeast Patients Group served on the Maine Medical Marijuana Taskforce that wrote these rules and created the monopoly for dispensaries? Yes. It may be called "non-profit" but how much are Directors of this dispensary going to be compensated? Medical marijuana monopoly just another reason why full legalization is the answer. How does one pretend to represent patients while selling black market priced medical marijuana?

Marijuana Prohibition in Australia

Marijuana Prohibition in Australia

With Ethan Nadelmann of Drug Policy Alliance and an opponent who opens by calling him a dope.

Ethan Nadelmann: ABC Australia


Ethan Nadelmann from the Drug Policy Alliance speaks with Tracy Bowden.


Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Broadcast: 23/11/2010
Reporter: Tracy Bowden

"TRACEY BOWDEN, PRESENTER: Elsewhere across Victoria today police launched one of the biggest anti drugs operations the state has ever seen.

More than 600 officers raided a cannabis and heroin syndicate that police allege made $400 million in just the past two years.

But as police were claiming victory in that battle, a visiting expert on narcotics law was telling the National Press Club that the wider international war on drugs can't be won.

Ethen Nadelmann heads the George Soros funded Policy Alliance in New York. He says that privately more and more politicians, police and health authorities know prohibition of drugs can't succeed and in fact only benefits criminals.

And he argues a move to decriminalise soft drugs and regulate supply of narcotics in countries like Australia is only a matter of time.

I spoke to Ethan Nadelmann in Sydney."

New York Times, New Trade Group’s Focus Will Be Marijuana Industry

New Trade Group’s Focus Will Be Marijuana Industry

By Dan Frosch, The New York Times - Tuesday, November 23 2010
Steve DeAngelo, founded a marijuana dispensary in Oakland, Calif., and is on the board of an industry trade group. It is being called the green rush. With more states moving to legalize medical marijuana, the business of growing and dispensing it is booming, even as much of the rest of the economy struggles.


Now, flush with financial clout, and with their eyes on pushing Congress to further loosen laws, medical marijuana industry leaders are forming a national trade association. While there are smaller, local trade groups, organizers around the country say this will be the first business organization working on the national level.


Based in Washington, the group, the National Cannabis Industry Association, will focus primarily on lobbying, but will also help medical marijuana businesses navigate a patchwork of laws that differ depending on location.
Is this good or bad news? Will the big boys of the cannabis industry monopolize and create barriers to enter the market? Will they protect patients or their bottom line? Strange to see three top members of MPP leading this new organization? Isn't that kind of a conflict of interest representing patients and then the businesses and their trade group that could monopolize and price control the medicine? NORML represents cannabis consumers. Who does MPP represent? Medical patients, cannabis consumers and the businesses that serve them?

Scientists challenge TSA on scanner radiation

Scientists challenge TSA on scanner radiation
Federal officials claim radiation risks from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration's new full-body scanners are low, but several scientists are calling on the administration to rethink whether the numbers really add up.

The TSA says the radiation from its security scans amounts to about a thousandth of the amount a patient receives from a standard chest X-ray, or an amount "equivalent to two minutes of flying on an airplane."

But a physics professor at Arizona State University in Tempe not only conducted his own study, finding the radiation exposure 10 times what the TSA estimates, but also argues that the health risks aren't mathematically worth taking.

Young boy strip searched by TSA

Video: TSA strip searching young boy
"Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn't set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn't complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn't end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn't hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins.

******* THIS VIDEO OCCURRED AT SALT LAKE CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON NOVEMBER 19TH AT AROUND THE TIME OF 12:00 PM **********

***Insertion of what happened after the video (full story)****

After I finished videotaping the incident I went through the check point myself. I collected my things and went over to talk to the father and son. Before I could get to them a man in a black suit who had been talking with the other TSA officials approached me. He asked to speak to me and I obliged, wondering what was to come. He then proceeded to interrogate me about why I was videotaping the "procedures of the TSA". I told him that I had never seen such practices before on a young child and decided to record it. The man being frustrated at this point demanded to know my plans with the video, of which I didn't respond. Repeatedly he asked me to delete the video, hoping his mere presence could intimidate me to obey, but I refused. By this point it became obvious that he felt TSA had done something wrong and that I caught it on tape. After the interview, I left for my gate. I called my brother who told me I should put the tape on YouTube because this had been a recent hot topic in the news.

My gate was a long way off, but about 15 minutes after arriving 2 TSA agents came and sat 15 feet or so away from me. I stood up and moved so that they were in front of me and then took a picture. A 3rd and then a 4th agent came and sat down with the others. They would occasionally glance at me and talk on their walkie-talkies. I don't know why they were there or if it was a huge coincidence but they stayed for 30-45 minutes and left just before I boarded the plan. Interesting to say the least, intimidating? Maybe a little."

New Jersey Assemblyman Gusciora on Legislation Invalidating Gov. Christie's Medicinal Marijuana

New Jersey Assemblyman Gusciora on Legislation Invalidating Gov. Christie's Medicinal Marijuana

In this video press release, Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer), a vocal advocate for medicinal marijuana use, discusses his legislation contesting Gov. Christie's draft regulations for implanting the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act.

Gusciora's legislation (ACR-151) formally declares draft regulations created by the Christie administration as being inconsistent with the legislative intent behind the compassionate use law.

Gusciora's measure, a legislative resolution that does not require the governor's signature, passed the Assembly Monday by a vote of 48-22-7.

The measure would give the commissioner of the state Department of Health and Senior Services 30 days to revise or withdraw the proposed rules for implementing the Compassionate Use Act.

If the administration does not comply, the Legislature may hold public hearings to discuss invalidating the proposed rules and may subsequently adopt a second resolution invalidating the proposed regulations.

Boycott Wal-Mart! Protecting safety of customers and employees from medical marijuana users?

Consider sending a message to Wal-Mart that it is not ok to fire medical marijuana users.

Message sent from here to Wal-Mart,

I'm not happy about your actions towards legal medical marijuana users who happen to be Wal-Mart employees. See the link. I will no longer shop at your stores and I will be asking others to do the same. Unless I hear that Wal-Mart has changed their policy on medical marijuana for employees with a valid prescription. It may be within your legal right to terminate employees who use medical marijuana but it does not make it right! We will use our legal right to boycott. I ask you to do the right thing for medical users. Change your policy.

And Wal-Mart's response:
Dear Mike,

Thank you for your recent inquiry. This is just an unfortunate situation all around. We are sympathetic to the former associate's condition but, like other companies, we have to consider the overall safety of our customers and associates, including the associate involved, when making difficult a decision like this.

Sincerely,
Walmart Customer Care
Safety of customers and associates? What? Are these folks at Walmart all on hardcore prescription meds? Apparently so.
