    MOMENTUM: Post Election, Marijuana Law Reform Bills to be Introduced at Both State and Federal Level
    by Erik Altieri, NORML Communications Director
    November 19, 2012

    The message from our big wins on Election Day has already begun to reverberate around the nation. Right on the heels of the votes in Washington and Colorado, several other states (and countries!) are already beginning to consider similar measures in their legislature.

    Last week, representatives from Maine and Rhode Island announced their intentions to introduce legislation that would tax and regulate marijuana in their respective states. Rep. Diane Russell of Maine and Rep. Edit Ajello from Rhode Island will be submitting these bills soon. Reports from Marijuana Policy Project indicated that Vermont and Massachusetts intend to follow suit.

    Reform is spreading as far as Iowa. Today, Rep. Bruce Hunter announced his intentions of not only reintroducing his medical marijuana measure, but also a bill that would decriminalize the possession of cannabis.

    The push for sensible reforms does not end at the state level, this week 18 members of the House of Representatives cosigned a letter sent to Attorney General Eric Holder and Drug Enforcement Administrator Michele Leonhart urging them to respect states that chose to experiment with new approaches to marijuana. You can read the full text of the letter here.

    Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) also declared that she will soon introduce legislation, entitled the “Respect States’ and Citizens’ Rights Act,” which would exempt states where voters have legalized cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act provisions related to the substance.

    Leaders outside of the United States have also been following these recent reform efforts closely. Uruguay has just introduced legislation into their congress that would legalize the possession, cultivation, and state-controlled production of marijuana. In Mexico, lawmaker Fernando Belaunzaran of Party of the Democratic Revolution has introduced legislation that also aims to legalize the production, sale and use of marijuana.

    Now that two states have legalized marijuana, the floodgates of reform have opened and each day more Americans, and people around the globe, are waking up to the reality that the prohibition of marijuana has been an utter failure. The statement delivered by the voters of Colorado and Washington is that we must regulate marijuana and do away with the societal ills caused by prohibition. Further, it showed that if the government isn’t willing to take the first step, the people will do it for them. We can only hope this recent wave of reform measures is just the beginning and we must work diligently to spread these rational policies nationwide. If history is any indication, like the end of alcohol prohibition before it, the one on marijuana will crumble at an accelerated rate as more Americans continue to stand up, in growing numbers, and demand sensible marijuana policy.

    Ruminating on the ‘domino effect’ of change, President Eisenhower once stated, “You have a row of dominoes set up, you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is the certainty that it will go over very quickly.”

    May it be so with marijuana legalization.
    drum roll?

    Aurora police have decided they will no longer target people for small-scale marijuana offenses and will dismiss all pending prosecutions of such offenses, as municipalities all across Colorado continue to react to the passage of Amendment 64.

    In a statement from Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates, he notes that a "municipal prosecutor is not likely to be able to obtain convictions for activity which will become lawful as early as December, when the Governor certifies the election."

    The measure is set to go into effect 30 days after votes are certified following the Nov. 6 election.

    Still, in Arapahoe County — where much of Aurora is located — the 18th Judicial District is still prosecuting such offenses until the new law goes into effect.

    "We have traffic, petty offenses, misdemeanor and felony marijuana-related cases. Our senior attorneys have been discussing the implications of Amendment 64, but we will not make any policy changes," Casimir Spencer, a spokeswoman for the office, said in a statement.

    Spencer added that the 18th District, which is the largest district in Colorado, continues having ongoing conversations with multiple agencies in the district.

    "We just want to get a complete overview of what agencies want prior to making a policy decision," Spencer said.

    Amendment 64 passed with about 53 percent public support in Arapahoe County.

    Meanwhile, in the 17th Judicial District, which includes Broomfield and Adams counties, officials are dealing with possession cases on a case-by-case basis.

    Oates adds that in Aurora any of his officers who "encounter the scent of marijuana " are still considering it to be an indicator of potential criminal activity as it's still illegal to possess outside the Amendment 64 guidelines.

    Two weeks ago, officials in Denver and Boulder announced they would no longer charge those over the age of 21 for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

    Under Amendment 64 — which passed with more than 54 percent support statewide — adults can lawfully possess up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to at least six plants.

    "Lymphoblasts are immature cells which typically differentiate to form mature lymphocytes. Normally lymphoblasts are found in the bone marrow only, but in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), lymphoblasts proliferate uncontrollably and are found in large numbers in the peripheral blood smear.

    July 14th 2012 (diagnosis day and steroid treatment began) Mykayla’s Lymphoblast percentage in her blood smear was 33%

    July 15th 2012 - 51% Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear


    July 16th 2012 – 11% Lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear (began chemotherapy)

    TODAY – 0% blasts!

    July 30th 2012 was THE VERY LAST TIME THEY HAVE FOUND LYMPHOBLASTS IN MYKAYLA’S BLOOD SMEAR!!!! The very next time we saw the oncologist they told us Mykayla was in remission.

    Some may say that cannabis does not “cure” cancer… I am not saying the steroids and chemo didn’t help… but this right here shows something… proof enough for me! Some say cannabis is inappropriate for children… We cancer is inappropriate for children. ♥ Peace Love and Happiness"

    Washington pot use starts, Colorado awaits legalization

    DENVER—Recreational marijuana use became legal in Washington state Thursday, but Colorado could have to wait almost a month before the state constitution allows people to legally smoke pot in private.

    Colorado's elections chief planned Thursday to certify last month's vote to allow recreational marijuana use. The certification sets up a 30-day window for Gov. John Hickenlooper to declare the amendment part of the state constitution.

    A spokesman for the governor said Thursday there's no date planned for Hickenlooper to make the declaration. The governor doesn't have veto power of a voter-approved amendment, but state officials may be waiting for a response from the federal government before taking the final stop on marijuana legalization.

    The governor's spokesman, Eric Brown, has said Hickenlooper is assembling a task force to examine the marijuana change. Further details weren't available Thursday.

    Hickenlooper has until Jan. 5 to declare recreational marijuana part of the constitution. He could make the declaration out of public view at any point until then.

    In Washington state, enactment of the marijuana law was set in statute by voters. Marijuana activists celebrated by counting down to midnight outside Seattle's Space Needle and lighting up when the drug became legal. Though public use isn't allowed in Washington, no criminal citations were issued.
    Colorado's measure allows adult over 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, or six plants. Public use isn't allowed.

    Both states call for regulation of a commercial marijuana industry. So far the federal government has insisted marijuana remains illegal under federal law, but there's been no word of lawsuits or other measures to block legalization in the two states.

    "Neither states nor the executive branch can nullify a statute passed by Congress," said a statement issued Wednesday by the Seattle U.S. attorney's office.

    Meanwhile, prosecutors across Colorado are grappling with how to handle cases involving possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. Prosecutors in several counties, including Denver and Boulder, have announced they will no longer charge those 21 and older with less than an ounce and also drop some or all pending cases.

    "You cannot criminally prohibit behavior that about 50 percent of the populace believes should be legal," Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett said. "The system just collapses, it doesn't work. That's what's happening with marijuana."

    But in some counties, including Weld and Jefferson west of Denver, prosecutors said they won't drop such cases.
    "Our job is to follow the law as it is now," said Jefferson County District Attorney Scott Storey.

    These CU students who gave their entire history class brownies really should be charged and face civil suits

    Apparently these dumb fucks don't realize there is an unspoken or universal rule that you don't dose someone who is unknowing or never gave consent

    If I was someone who was prone to severe anxiety panic attacks, had an irregular heartbeat, or any other sort of medical condition that made me avoid THC - I would fuck these two up in the parking lot.

    These little shithead college kids are gonna ruin this win

    Pot legalized in Colo. with governor's proclamation

    4:04PM EST December 10. 2012 - DENVER (AP) — Marijuana for recreational use became legal in Colorado Monday, when the governor took the procedural step of declaring the voter-approved change part of the state constitution.

    Colorado became the second state after Washington to allow pot use without a doctor's recommendation. Both states prohibit public use of the drug, and commercial sales in Colorado and Washington won't be permitted until after regulations are written next year.

    Hickenlooper, a Democrat, opposed the measure but had no veto power over the voter-approved amendment to the state constitution. He tweeted his declaration Monday and sent an executive order to reporters by email after the fact. That prevented a countdown to legalization as seen in Washington, where the law's supporters gathered to smoke in public.

    "Voters were loud and clear on Election Day," Hickenlooper said in his statement. The law allowed him until Jan. 5 to declare marijuana legal.

    Adults over 21 in Colorado may now possess up to an ounce of marijuana, or six plants. Public use and sale of the drug remain illegal.

    Colorado and Washington officials both have asked the U.S. Department of Justice for guidance on the laws that conflict with federal drug law. So far the federal government has offered little guidance beyond stating that marijuana remains illegal and that the controlled Substances Act will be enforced. Of special concern for state regulators is how to protect state employees who violate federal drug law by complying with state marijuana laws.

    Hickenlooper also announced a state task force Monday to help craft the marijuana regulations. The 24-member task force includes law enforcement, agriculture officials and marijuana advocates.

    The governor admonished the task force not to ponder whether marijuana should be legal.

    "The Task Force shall respect the will of the voters of Colorado and shall not engage in a debate of the merits of marijuana legalization," the executive order read.

    Hickenlooper told the task force to "work to reconcile Colorado and federal laws such that the new laws and regulations do not subject Colorado state and local governments and state and local government employees to prosecution by the federal government."

    Colorado's marijuana measure, Amendment 64, was approved with 55 percent of the vote last month. One of the authors of Colorado's pot amendment, Mason Tvert, called the declaration "truly historic."

    "We are certain that this will be a successful endeavor and Colorado will become a model for other states to follow," Tvert said in a statement.
