Trump Confirms He Will Support Bill Ending Federal Marijuana Ban

Talking with reporters Friday morning before heading to G7 in Canada, Trump said he will back a bill that protects states that have legalized marijuana from federal prohibition. The bill, introduced by Sen. Cory Gardner and Elizabeth Warren, would make federal marijuana laws inapplicable in states, federal territories, and tribal lands that have passed legalization measures. Trump’s statement is in opposition to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ stance on the matter as the DOJ has been cracking down on cannabis decriminalization laws under his reign. In the video below, former congressman Billy Tauzin predicts fully legal weed within five years.

Urban Dictionary: Dank

Dank, is an adjective which is over-used by people in general and mostly by people trying to appear cool to their stoner friends. It was originally a common word to describe disgusting basements and caves ect. Then the world of pot took it over and was using it very correctly to describe very potent strains of marijuana, seeing as the definition of dank meets all the qualities you find in good marijuana. In reality it makes them seem as illiterate as an ape. M&M’s are not dank, chips are not dank, and your clothes are definitely not dank, you need to stop overusing and killing the word.

Barry Chuckle of UK comedy duo Chuckle Brothers dies at 73

British children’s entertainer Barry Chuckle, half of sibling duo the Chuckle Brothers, has died at age 73. Barry and his younger brother Paul came from a family of entertainers in northern England – their father performed alongside a young Peter Sellers – and developed a double act that combined visual gags, catchphrases and the brothers’ natural warmth. The brothers typically undertook a new task in each episode, producing slapstick results. The duo were awarded a special British Academy award in 2008 for their contribution to children’s television.

Should the NFL allow marijuana use?

As a federally sanctioned and regulated monopoly, the NFL really has no choice here. The league is also very conscious of the fact that players play in different states. Players are required to pay state income tax for where they play that week, not where they live or play their home games. Local laws have to be honored, as state government is often the source of funding for new stadiums, and most states have not legalized pot.

DRUGS,MARIJUANA,SMOKING,COMEDY

With so much political and social momentum, it may seem like marijuana is on a roll right now – and it totally is. There’s still one big hurdle to jump: Even if cannabis is legal at the state level, it’s still illegal at the federal level. That tension is making our transition to a new administration even more confusing – and terrifying for marijuana advocates. All of this goes back to the Controlled Substances Act, passed in 1970, explains Amanda Reiman, manager for marijuana law and policy at the Drug Policy Alliance. At the time, President Nixon recommended putting marijuana in schedule 1, the most restrictive level, which indicated that it had no medical use and a high potential for addiction. 

Even more confusing than that is that the purview of various aspects of drugs has gone back and forth between federal and state governments. Traditionally, the federal government gets to decide what is and isn’t legal, but how severely we want to punish people for more minor violations of those laws has been up to individual states. So recent marijuana legalization has really blurred those historical dividing lines. Essentially, all of the state marijuana programs – both medical and otherwise – only exist at all because the federal government is allowing them to exist. There’s really no guarantee that the federal government will continue to respect those states’ decisions. 

That’s why marijuana advocates are so nervous about the surprises the oncoming Trump presidency may bring – especially the potential confirmation of notoriously anti-marijuana Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. It’s also why we still have to have a disclaimer on all of our marijuana-related articles – even if you’re living in a weed-legal state, that’s not a guarantee that marijuana is actually legal.

Jimmy Kimmel & Seth Rogen List Top 4 People to Smoke Weed With

Nash Edgerton’s “Gringo” – Millennial Movie Man

Along with Joel, Gringo delivers a top-billed list of performers, including David Oyelowo playing the lovable yet naïve lead, Charlize Theron in a Cruella Deville style supporting role, Amanda Seyfried doing her good girl next door routine, and Sharlto Copley being the badass we knew him to be. A film named for the obvious purpose of addressing an American out of his comfort zone in Mexico, Gringo could very well have been called anything for all the absolute craziness that it covers. TABLE SETTING/FIRST-ACTOyelowo plays Harold Soyinka: a middle-management, play-by-the-rules Nigerian Immigrant living in Chicago determined to pay his dues and to secure his own slice of the American dream – at least until he is held hostage on a business trip in Mexico. The corporate vampires and deplorable individuals that are Richard and Elaine have commenced in closing talks on a company merger looking to clean house, with the more than gullible Harold first to go on the chopping block. After finally starting to see the writing on the wall in respect to his fading job security,, good-guy Harold attempts to take his future by the balls and decides to formulates an amateurish, half-cocked extortion scheme to secure money from his crooked bosses while in Mexico. 

Before you know it, a slew of wacky characters become thrown into the mix and right into Harold’s self-destructive path while in Mexico – including sweet girl Sunny, Richard’s mercenary tracking brother Mitch, and a couple of money-grubbing knuckleheads who manage a local Mexican motel. The real fun and gun style stuff is all happening with Harold south of the border, with semi-hilarity coupling with brutally explosive violence unfolds; Gringo manages to find some stable footing and a good-natured stride in its Mexican setting for a while, making the first two-thirds of the film admissibly enjoyable. To couple with the chubby plot and scattered cast, Gringo begins shedding its narrative and character weight once certain plot point requirements are met for forward momentum. Some of what were supposed to be defining aspects of Gringo just falls to the wayside to make room for the bloated and messy storytelling. Gringo’s strengths happen to reside in the cast and their brilliant chemistry with one another, particularly with the duos of Edgerton/Theron and Oyelowo/Copley. 

Gringo is at its best when its characters are riffing and vibing; however, it evidently erupts these moments with a hurried narrative that never seems to allow the film a chance to breathe, nor its characters the ability to ever really develop within their restricted frameworks. This film has some memorable moments, but due to its inefficiencies, poorly-devised promotional strategy, and its vaguely obscure film title, Gringo may not be one to remember years down the road. Gringo is available everywhere, including Redbox.

California Could Extend ‘Sanctuary State’ Status to Marijuana

The effort borrows the sanctuary idea from a controversial California law passed last year limiting local law enforcement’s efforts to work with federal authorities to arrest and deport illegal immigrants. Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer, a Democrat who represents part of Los Angeles, is determined to protect the burgeoning billion-dollar marijuana industry in the state from federal prosecution by reviving a bill that stalled in the Senate in June after passing in the Assembly. While many states have decriminalized or legalized marijuana use, the drug is still illegal under federal law. Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this month moved to rescind the Obama-era hands-off policy on states with marijuana-friendly state laws just as California’s law legalizing recreational use went into effect. The California Police Chiefs Association and the California State Sheriffs’ Association also came out against the marijuana sanctuary state bill last year, deriding it as another effort to tie their hands. 

Fifty-seven percent of Californians voted in favor of making recreational marijuana use legal in a 2016 state ballot initiative. Like the sanctuary state law, which restricted law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal authorities to locate, arrest and deport illegal immigrants, Joes-Sawyer’s bill would prevent state and local agencies from working with federal drug enforcement agencies to arrest and prosecute legal marijuana growers and sellers without a federal court order. Jones-Sawyer has said he has no problem with Sessions trying to target illegal marijuana businesses trying to operate in California. Last week, Assemblyman Rob Bonta, a Democrat from Oakland, Calif., also took action to try to undercut any federal prosecutions against the state’s marijuana growers, sellers and users. If the federal government begins a new wave of enforcement against the marijuana industry in the state it could have a chilling effect on an industry that is expected to hit $6.5 billion in sales by 2020, according to New Frontier Data, a research firm that analyzes the industry. 

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is engaged in a court fight with Trump over legal protections for immigrants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, has said he is considering filing suit against Sessions on the marijuana issue as well. He also has requested information from U.S. attorneys located in California who represent the federal government on how they plan to implement Sessions’s marijuana policy-whether they plan to aggressively go after marijuana growers and sellers or only in cases that involve other serious criminal allegations.

On 4/20, Chuck Schumer To Introduce Bill To Decriminalize Marijuana

On 4/20, Chuck Schumer To Introduce Bill To Decriminalize Marijuana The top Senate Democrat will introduce a bill to decriminalize pot at the federal level. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., plans to introduce legislation on Friday to decriminalize marijuana on the federal level, adding a high-profile advocate in the effort to decriminalize, legalize and normalize marijuana use in America. Schumer’s legislation would remove marijuana from the list of scheduled substances under a 1970 law that classifies marijuana as dangerous as heroin for legal and regulatory purposes. The move is coming on 4/20, the unofficial holiday celebrating marijuana use and culture. Schumer’s support is the latest indicator of the green wave affecting American politics, with growing support across the political spectrum to change the way the federal government sees marijuana. 

The reversals are fueled by a growing number of states that are successfully experimenting with changing marijuana laws – and enjoying the revenue they are bringing in to help their cash-strapped states. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., waged a battle against the Trump administration this year after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era memorandum that advised federal law enforcement to deprioritize marijuana for prosecution. Gardner held up Trump’s nominees for the Justice Department until he received a personal assurance from the president that his administration would not crack down on states that have legalized marijuana. Across the aisle, liberal lawmakers are likewise flocking to co-sponsor bills to roll back marijuana restrictions. 

On Thursday, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, became a co-sponsor of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker’s bill to legalize marijuana and let people convicted in the past of marijuana possession get their criminal records expunged. The three are all possible 2020 presidential contenders – another indicator of which way politicians see the country moving when it comes to marijuana policy. The Associated Press reported that a group of U.S. 

health experts on Thursday endorsed the use of a medicine made from the marijuana plant to treat seizures in children.

From little Dutch boys plugging their fingers into dikes to lonely Dutchmen putting their fingers into dykes, the Dutch have always been asking for great deluges. The goddess Flora leads entranced Dutch weavers-who had abandoned their looms and invested heavily in the bulbs-to an impoverished burial at sea. While hard drugs are outlawed, softer drugs like wet mushrooms and marijuana are only technically illegal, the legislative loophole of a half-assed Dutch attempt to skirt around international treaties. Currently, the most divisive and hotly debated social issue in the Dutch Parliament is legistlation that would grant the right to euthanize one’s gay prostitute spouse.

Trading approximately US$1000 for the island of Manhattan in 1626, the Dutch patted themselves on the back and thought themselves shrewd businessmen, but not even a decade later, these were the guys taking out loans to buy tulips. New Amsterdam had been established partly to protect Dutch interests in the beaver trade. After on-and-off wars with England, the Dutch ceded New Amsterdam to the English in return for legal recognition of other Dutch territories that were rich in nutmeg; smart money says it’s because nutmeg can also lead to a hallucinogenic high.

Virginia congressman pitching marijuana “home run ball”

Lelling’s comment echoed what U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said about the federal prohibition on marijuana during his Senate confirmation hearing, effectively: If you don’t like the law, change it. A Republican who served as a prosecutor for a decade before entering politics, Garrett last year filed a bill to end the federal ban on marijuana and allow individual states to determine what marijuana policy is best. Garrett said his interest in ending the federal prohibition on marijuana is not grounded in a belief that marijuana should be freely available, but rather in the notion that laws should be applied uniformly. In the 11 months since Garrett filed the bill, 24 other members of Congress – 19 Democrats and 5 Republicans – have signed on as co-sponsors, nine of them have signed on since Sessions announced that the Justice Department will no longer maintain a policy of looking the other way in states that have established legal and regulated marijuana industries. Massachusetts voters in 2016 legalized possession and use of marijuana by adults at least 21 years old, and state pot regulators have said that they will forge ahead undeterred by Sessions shifting federal guidance. Retail marijuana sales are expected to begin July 1 in the Bay State. A new Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, found that 58 percent of voters nationally support making marijuana use legal while 36 percent oppose it. Quinnipiac also found that voters oppose enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana by a three-to-one margin, with 70 percent of respondents saying the federal government should not interfere in those markets. No subgroup used by the pollsters supported enforcing the federal marijuana prohibition in those states. On Wednesday, a data analytics firm that focuses on the marijuana industry released a new report that estimated that cannabis commerce has the potential to create $131.8 billion in federal tax revenue and 1.1 million new jobs by 2025.
