When Weed Is Legal, Can I Smoke A Joint Anywhere?

I am a long-time closeted cannabis user and I am looking forward to the legalization of pot next summer. But until then, my question has to do with my rights as a home owner and a pot smoker versus the rights of my neighbour to not smell said marijuana. Now, I don’t spend the whole day out there smoking, just one joint here or there. Yesterday afternoon, they smelled my J and proceeded to speak loudly to each other within earshot of me as to how rude this is. Is it rude Dave? Am I allowed to indulge in a smoke in my own yard? Legalization is going to change how much smoke you smell walking down the street, I think it’s already changed. Whether we want it or not it’s coming … stinky smoke and all. Who’s got the right though?

Once it becomes legal weed smoke will be flowing through the air. I believe that over the next few decades that frowned upon look will slowly go away and people wont be so rude when they smell it. You think I like inhaling and smelling your cigarette smell while im trying to enjoy myself?? Hell NO!! But I don’t say what i’m feeling when people smoke. No because its legal you have your own right to do whatever you like. Just like me.

When you think about it, weed is just like alcohol in terms of how it was illegal for so long and then it became legal and the industry absolutely blew up! Brewers and producers have produced good product. Is that what it will be like? Will there be a Molson Canadian Weed? Heiniken Marijuana?

Funny to think that it can happen. Why would it be any different?? It can be the evolution of what we can expect in the next 100 years.

DEA chief: ‘Marijuana Is Not Medicine’

Yes, you read the heading right and yes, I was just as mad as you are as I was reading it for the first time.

Drug Enforcement Administration acting Chief Chuck Rosenberg reiterated an Obama-era stance Thursday that “marijuana is not medicine.”

“If it turns out that there is something in smoked marijuana that helps people, that’s awesome,” he said, speaking at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. “I will be the last person to stand in the way of that. … But let’s run it through the Food and Drug Administration process, and let’s stick to the science on it.”

POLICE MARIJUANA

Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act, alongside drugs like heroin and LSD, while other substances like oxycodone and methamphetamine are classified as Schedule II drugs, which are regulated differently. Despite repeated attempts by advocates requesting that marijuana be moved to Schedule II, the DEA has pointed to the FDA’s guidance that says it does not have medical value.

Rosenberg noted that the DEA takes recommendations about how to classify the drug from the FDA. He pointed out that marijuana studies have been ongoing and acknowledged some studies show it may have medical benefits for children with epilepsy.

He also appeared to show some concern around state laws regarding recreational marijuana, saying that it is addictive, which can be harmful to a developing brain that is vulnerable to developing substance abuse and addiction.

“When you develop a substance use disorder at a young age, it actually increases the likelihood of you developing an addiction to other substances,” he said. “So in that sense addiction to marijuana or any substance, including nicotine, during adolescence and young adulthood when the brain is developing is very concerning.”

Whatever happens, after all the research and everything I hope they can see the beauty and the help Marijuana gives to its users.

Nevada Can Begin To Sell Recreational Marijuana Early

Nevada is about to get a whole lot more sweet and HIGH! With the legalization of Marijuana slowly looming over the nation, licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in good standing with the state of Nevada can begin selling marijuana for recreational purposes as early as July 1, the state tax board voted Monday.

The Nevada Tax Commission voted and it was approved that temporary licenses for shops that qualify can start selling recreational marijuana as early as July 1 instead of January. Giving the state Department of Taxation time to test the regulations before the program goes into full effect in 2018.

Marijuana retailers must have state and local licenses to operate. Most Nevada counties have yet to approve their own regulations for the Adult-use retail market. When it is done, adults in the state will be able to legally purchase up to an ounce of weed. The law in Nevada will also allow up to six Marijuana plants to be grown for personal use.

For all the people who have been waiting for the end of prohibition of Marijuana were concerned about the legalization of weed under President Trump. While he was running, Trump said he was supportive of medical marijuana “100 percent” and would respect states’ rights on the issue. But his selection of Jeff Sessions as attorney general, an anti-marijuana hard-liner, was troubling to those who favor progressive drug laws.

Marijuana is the most common illicit substance in the U.S. and the amount of states that are joining the cult of legalizing marijuana is making our fight stronger. National support for legalizing the plant has dramatically risen in the last couple years. Reaching historic highs in multiple polls. However marijuana is still illegal in under federal law.

The laws in Canada are due to change on the Nations birthday of next year. Living in Vancouver, people are more excited then ever. Will it happen? You tell me…

Cannabis Church Now Open

Have you ever thought about going to Church to worship your favorite drug? Yeah me neither. Now in Denver, Colorado a group of individuals have re opened an old church to make way for the future of cannabis. The state of Colorado, which has now made weed legal, is growing in the cannabis world.

They call it Elevationism. The basic principle is that using cannabis allows worshippers to achieve the best version of themselves. I like the sound of that if I do say so myself.

The church came first and the religion came second. Steve Berke, one of the founders, got help from his parents to purchase the historic building, which cost over $1 million.

At first they weren’t sure what to do with it. They thought about turning it into condominiums, or a mansion for a Denver Broncos player, before they finally settled on using the church as it was intended — well, sort of.

YES! The answer to the question everyone is thinking when reading this article. Yes, you can smoke weed, however its done in a different room where the daily mass is held place. The church is just like a regular church where you can come to pray or meditate and all that. The Church is open to the public between Monday-Friday 12-3pm. On the weekends it is only open to private members.

The church hasn’t arrived in Denver without controversy. The day it opened, Dan Pabon, a Democrat in the state’s House of Representatives, tried to add an amendment banning cannabis consumption in churches to a bill. But some of Pabon’s fellow representatives argued that the amendment would be an unconstitutional restriction on religion, and it was scuttled, The Denver Post reported.

It’s irrelevant to me what other people think about this. We’re doing what we’re doing. It’s for real, It’s a very serious undertaking. In time, it’ll prove itself.” Said the head organizer of the Church.

100 Years of Prohibition….why?

It’s been 94 years exactly that marijuana has been illegal. Almost a century has gone by and till this day no one knows why it was pronounced illegal. A professor of the history department at the University of Guelph said there is 2 common theories that people have explained in old books or films.

Carstairs believes marijuana was made illegal by government bureaucrats without much thought, who felt the drug was coming under increasing international scrutiny as a drug that one day need to be regulated.

By 1922 a number of U.S. states had already introduced legislation against the drug and I think Canada was sort of following international guidelines and added marijuana to the schedule of restricted drugs without a great deal of debate.

There is no record of it ever being discussed in parliament, I think the only reason it was  added to the illegal list is because it was being discussed at international meetings with world leaders.

Carstairs adds that while federal law makers barely knew about the existence of pot, it wasn’t something the average Canadian knew much about either. There was almost no marijuana use in Canada at the time. It boggles the mind that they made it illegal.

Canada, which is a huge surprise, was one of the first countries in the world to ban the flower. The law was not really forced in the first 10 years or so. However in the late 1930s is when police really cracked down on cannabis use. It was the USA that put Canada under pressure to start forcing the law. RCMP fanned out across the nation to stop cannabis use.

At the time, hemp was a common sight on farms across the country, where it often grew wild and was often used by farmers not as a drug, but as a windbreak to protect crops and prevent soil erosion.

Now here we are, nearly 100 years later, and marijuana is still illegal but they’re not as harsh as they once were. The federal government is now wanting to legalize it. Will they do it? Only time will tell. However, this marijuana smoker believes cannabis is the best plant god created and the fact that something so herbal and natural is banned is ridiculous. Tell me what you think.
