Marijuana Headlines Weekly Round Up – May 28, 2016

It’s the end of the week folks and time for a weekly outline on marijuana stories that made and did not make the headlines.  The week started off with a congressional Candidate from Tennessee USA, in the headlines for discoveries of Cannabis in her backyard. Florence ‘Flo’ Matheson a 77 year old congressional candidate may be facing criminal indictment after close to 200 cannabis plants were found in her backyard.

As a law abiding citizen myself, I believe all laws should be respected, but when it comes to marijuana I also strongly feel the law to prohibit marijuana its self is actually illegal. I base my argument on the fact that the reasons why marijuana is illegal, are all false and therefore it should never be illegal. My wish is that those charges are dropped, but off cause shit doesn’t work that way and I’m sure that her political aspirations have been ruined, just because of an illegal law that doesn’t allow folks to plant their own medicine.  The congressional candidate has maintained she knows nothing about the plants, as she was leasing the home were the plants were found. The charges have been pressed against the tenant so far.   I personally doubt the plants were hers but hey, you’ll never know with pot. Who ever thought Betty White Sparks joints?

Great news for veterans in the USA folk’s .Congress finally approved medical marijuana for veterans. The House of Representatives and the Senate agreed to enforce a new amendment that would enable veteran doctors to prescribe marijuana for needing soldiers. This is the first time in American history that both chambers have seen eye to eye on an amendment of this kind. So doctors can prescribe medical marijuana or recommend it to those that might be willing to try it out. Why this was illegal before really amuses me folks. If we have regular citizens able to get it via their private doctors, I really don’t understand why it was not allowed for veterans through their doctors.

Still in the USA, New York police Commissioner Bill Bratton, echoed that recreational marijuana causes violence. Never seems to amuse me how we still have delusional leaders like him folks. With all these great advancements we are having in the marijuana world, why do we still have folks blind to the facts. He should be ashamed for uttering such rubbish and needs to get his head examined ASAP before he starts saying mermaids exist.  No facts at all support the fact that marijuana causes violence. Marijuana is a harmless flower that has never killed anyone. Maybe this jackass should speak with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who opposed legalization when voters approved Amendment 64, in 2012, but recently came out stating legalization is beginning to look like it might work after all. Also in the USA, a Texas City Whitewright, elected a pro marijuana mayor folks. This is huge because Texas is probably going to be the very last state to legalize recreation marijuana.

In Canada it was a rather sad week after Toronto Police went on a rampage and raided over 50 dispensaries in the city. Oh Boy was this a bad move! The move I believe brought bad luck to the city as The Toronto Raptors then lost their remaining playoff games to the Cleveland Browns. Lol.  The raids were carried out in conjunction with the city’s bylaw authority against “locations that are identified as trafficking in marijuana outside the marijuana for medical purposes regulations.”  The cost of all these raids is projected to be around $2.5M. Not too sure how marijuana activist got those figures but hey, I trust them more than I trust the government. If you didn’t know folks, Toronto’s zoning code lets the distribution of marijuana that was produced by a cultivation facility licensed by Health Canada. Meaning to say that any dispensary retailing marijuana obtained from a grower that is not licensed by the government is technically in violation of the zoning bylaws. All this happening under a “Liberal” government folks. You would have aye assumed that Stephen Harper was still in power with these types of raids.
