Feds Approve Truce in War on Medical Marijuana

How big of a deal is this? Media interpretations are mixed. In the L.A. Times, reporter Evan Halper says the provision “effectively ends the federal government’s prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.” Halper quotes Bill Piper, a lobbyist with the Drug Policy Alliance, who boldly declares, “The war on medical marijuana is over.”

But as previously reported, the provision, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, was first approved in December of last year.

Ferrioli's proposal was first reported this afternoon by the EO Media Group/Pamplin Media Group Capital Bureau. Judge orders trial for 3 defendants in deadly Modesto shooting.

Among other things, their lawsuit argues that the officers thought they had disabled all of the security cameras at Sky High Holistic and therefore had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

Oregon’s legal-weed overlords are trying to move forward with a disputed $1.7 million state pot contract.

OLCC Wants to Sign a Disputed $1.7 Million Contract to Track Legal Weed

In May, Florida software company BioTrackTHC sued the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, claiming state regulators might have rigged the awarding of the contract for a computer system to track marijuana from farm to joint. Now the OLCC has asked a Marion County judge to let it immediately sign a contract it awarded to BioTrackTHC’s competitor, Florida-based Franwell.

Cannabis Industry Security Group Journal. Cannabis Industry Security Group Journal. Cannabis Industry Security Group Journal. Marijuana For Veterans With PTSD Is Finally Going to Be Legal.

Senate Committee Votes to Block DEA from Interfering in Medical Marijuana States. Both the House and Senate sent a message to the Justice Department, particularly the Drug Enforcement Administration, to stop interfering in medical marijuana states. The Senate Appropriations Committee voted in favor of renewing a provision on Thursday that would block the Justice Department from using federal money to interfere in the implementation of state medical marijuana laws.

The same provision was passed last year through both houses of Congress, and was in the federal spending bill signed into law in December by President Barack Obama.

The appropriations bill for fiscal year 2016 to which the amendment was offered by Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) has yet to be approved by the Senate.
