#RhodeIsland weighs legalizing marijuana, but with alcohol-style regulation, taxes - Norwich, CT | The proposal would lift the ban on possessing marijuana for anyone over the age of 21. Marijuana retailers would have to purchase $5,000 annual licenses and wholesalers would pay a $50-per-ounce excise tax. Individuals could grow up to three marijuana plants by paying a $100-per-plant fee.
We need more states to legalize for medical purposes so the Feds back off! A new poll shows a sizeable majority of Connecticut voters support allowing adults to legally use marijuana for medical purposes, if the drug is prescribed by their doctor.
Happening in MI too! Landlord faces prison for tenants' medical marijuana- Just when you thought the unconstitutional acts of the federal government against medical marijuana states couldn't get any worse, they cross a seemly uncrossable line yet again. Now, if you rent out property, you can be subject to imprisonment if your tenant is a legal and licensed medical marijuana grower. www.examiner.com/...
NORML’s Keith Stroup, Erik Altieri on The Bob Edwards Show | Last week, NORML Founder/Legal Counsel Keith Stroup and NORML Communications Director Erik Altieri, sat down with Bob Edwards (former host of NPR’s Morning Edition) on his SiriusXM talk radio program. The three discussed a wide range of issues, including the benefits of legalization, current pending legislation, industrial hemp, and more.
Support for legalizing marijuana has been growing over the past 40 years — 2011 saw the greatest percentage of Americans in favor of decriminalization ever. But state and federal lawmakers are among the minority that favors criminal penalties. Together with TakePart, we trace the disconnect.
