Canadians have their sights set on USA cannabis industry

Canadians have their sights set on USA cannabis industry

Paraguay now joins Mexico and the South American countries of Argentina, Chile, Columbia, and Peru in allowing medical marijuana. "We also tip our hats to the Governor's cabinet, the legislative joint budget committee and all who supported marijuana legalization in Colorado given the funding for these important public health interventions stem from the state's Marijuana Tax Cash Fund". But in more than 30 states where pot is legal in some form, including CT, it's classified as a schedule 2 drug.

Government officials like Mr. Sessions wrongly continue to put marijuana in the same category as opioids like heroin when the two classes of drugs have virtually nothing in common.

For those who favor legalizing recreational and medical use of marijuana, there is plenty of bad news in Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to reverse the Justice Department's previous hands-off policy toward state experimentation.

In refusing to rule out bringing federal charges against state-sanctioned marijuana businesses, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling told pot activists and entrepreneurs earlier this week that their only path to legal safety and certainty runs through Congress.

"If cannabis businesses were legalized tomorrow and taxed as normal businesses with a standard 35 percent tax rate, cannabis businesses would infuse the US economy with an additional $12.6 billion this year", said Giadha Aguirre De Carcer, the CEO of New Frontier.

The president also assured farmers that he's working on a "better deal" on NAFTA, which, he told them was under negotiation "as we speak".

Rep. Tom Reed (R-Corning, NY 23), Chautauqua County's representative in Washington, says he does support using marijuana/cannabis for medicinal purposes, but is also reluctant to support a push to end prohibition altogether, or even remove it from the Drug Enforcement Administration's list of Schedule 1 drugs.

Last week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era set of guidelines known as the Cole and Ogden memos, which indicated the federal government would not interfere with state cannabis regulations as long as the drug was not marketed to minors, trafficked by cartels, sold across state lines, or cultivated on federal land.

The president remains unhappy that Sessions made a decision to recuse himself from the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the Post noted. So far, the only effect he's had is to sow a good deal of confusion. Marijuana sales are illegal in other local jurisdictions, but, according to the white paper, the county would have received almost $500,000 if it had allowed pot sales.

"Legalize marijuana so police can focus resources on violent crimes", Murphy says on his campaign website. It's high time for new pot laws.

CT legalized medical marijuana in 2014, and today there are 22,348 people allowed to use the drug and 807 physicians allowed to prescribe it, according to the Department of Consumer Protection. But there's a way to bridge that gap.

Did Hina Khan Compare Shilpa Shinde To A CALL GIRL?
Shilpa says she will either destroy her make up or damage her "Sher Khan" mug given by her boyfriend Rocky Jaiswal. Most of the time, Akash crossed the limits, which not only irritated the contestants but also the fans.

Truly, it is an incredible thing to hear those with the power to change the law demanding the Attorney General not do his job because they have failed to do theirs. "We congratulate the chosen jurisdictions while also urging them to ensure those most harmed by the failed approach benefit the most from the new policies".

The Quinnipiac poll found that 58 of voters think recreational marijuana should be legal - 79 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds hold that view.

Vin Candelora, a Republican from North Branford, pointed out that states that have successfully legalized recreational marijuana - Alaska, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Maine and MA - did so with ballots. Similar to Colorado and Washington, adults 21 years of age and over are legally allowed to grow up to six cannabis plants and possess an ounce.

If members of Congress object to enforcing certain laws, then the answer is to amend the law, not ask the attorney general to illegally ignore the law.
