MJ News: T-Mobile Censors Medical Cannabis Texts!

Cellphone carrier, T-Mobile has been sued by a medical cannabis website for censoring texts their site was sending to those who requested information about dispensaries near them.  It's actually a cool service because with a cellphone you can easily find the nearest cannabis dispensaries.  In several states medical cannabis is legal, and so such a service would also be legal.

It seems to be an issue of "net neutrality" and free speech wherein a communications carrier such as T-Mobile makes its own moral judgments on the content it carries, and censors that which doesn't meet its own moral standards.  There is nothing wrong with the content being transmitted as that in itself is legal.  So the question remains how can such censorship be justified?

Meanwhile the website, Weed Maps, is losing business as a result of the censorship.

MJ News: Top British Police Chief Calls for Decriminalizing Cannabis!

Once again, the British are reevaluating their stance on illegal drugs, including cannabis.  Having reviewed the laws and effects of decriminalization in other countries like Portugal, where all personal use of drugs has been decriminalized, the British gov't is ready to take a look at changing their own classification system for illegal drugs.

With a new government in power, and both parties in the coalition willing to reconsider the draconian approach the gov't now has, wherein cannabis is still classified along other more dangerous drugs,  the Brits are finally ready to admit failure in their drug war.

"Hollis, chairman of the Association of Chief Police Officers' drugs committee, said he did not want to criminalise young people caught with minor amounts of substances such as cannabis. A criminal record that could ruin their career before it began was disproportionate, he said.

Hollis said budget cuts had forced police to "prioritise" resources towards tackling organised criminal networks rather than individuals carrying drugs for personal use. He also backed calls for the current drug classification system into class A, B and C to be re-examined following concerns that bracketing substances such as heroin and ecstasy in the same class is confusing."

Cannabis had been decriminalized under Tony Blair, but politics interfered and a campaign of FEAR was launched in the U.K. with article after article of propaganda against cannabis leading to the recriminalization that still stands.

Some leading British scientists are calling for the legalization of cannabis for recreational use as well as the end of enforcement of laws against the personal use of illegal drugs.  They say it's not only a waste of precious resources to arrest and imprison individuals for their drug use, while there are not enough resources to bring down the drug kingpins.

Let's hope the Brits can follow the lead of California and other US states in legalizing cannabis for medical and recreational use.

MJ News: California Union Supports Prop 19, Cannabis Legalization

SEIU, California's biggest and most powerful employee union, has come out in favor of legalizing cannabis.  Prop 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 will be voted on this November by California residents.  Polls show a tight vote, but this endorsement could make a big difference if it changes the way people think about cannabis.

"At the very least, the support by the S.E.I.U., which claims over 700,000 members in the state, could make it easier for other groups to rally around the measure. More practically, it means access to the union’s considerable campaign apparatus, which could finance mailings, telephone calls and leaflets."

MJ News: Marijuana Reform #1 question at Obama's Website!

I'm sure some of you know that President-Elect Obama had set up a system for people to ask a question of him and his administration relating to things they will make a priority during the beginning and duration of Obama's presidency. People were allowed to click a check or x to reply as to whether they approved of the question. The number one question as of the close of voting was this



Quote:
"Will you consider legalizing marijuana so that the government can regulate it, tax it, put age limits on it, and create millions of new jobs and create a billion dollar industry right here in the U.S.?"


Additionally 16 of the top 50 questions pertained to the failed drug policy in the US. Most of those questions were about pot. There is a blog post coming in the next few days from the Obama camp. I'm curious to see how they address these questions. I'll post the blog from Obama's people as soon as they write it.

MJ News: Marijuana and Red Wine Ward Off Alzheimer's!

Researchers at Ohio State University reported that THC, the main psychoactive substance in the cannabis plant, may reduce inflammation in the brain and even stimulate the formation of new brain cells.

They found that administering a THC-like synthetic drug to older rats performed better at a memory test than a control group of non-medicated elderly rodents.

In some of the rats, the drug apparently lowered inflammation in the hippocampus -- the region of the brain responsible for short-term memory. It also seems to have stimulated the generation of new brain cells.

In another study done at UCLA, polyphenols, which are found in high concentrations in tea, nuts and berries, as well as cabernets and merlots, were found to inhibit or prevent the buildup of toxic fibers in the brain.

MJ News: MJ eases symptoms of ADHD a new study shows.

A new study from the Heidelberg University Medical Centre in Heidelberg Germany has published the result from a study that shows that the effects of cannabis ease the symptons of ADHD. It also shows that smoking, or ingesting marijuana also helps people suffering from ADHD to concentrate on their driving which is a problem ( I know, I have been diagnosed with severe ADHD.) Please read and distribute this study to your doctor if you suffer from ADHD or to your parents if you are underage.

The synopsis of the story can be found here

MJ News: California Upholds Proposition 215, Strikes Down SB 420 Possession Amounts!!!

A state appeals court upheld California's 12-year-old medical marijuana law Thursday, rejecting two counties' arguments that allowing patients to use the drug with their doctor's approval condones violations of federal narcotics laws.

The Fourth District Court of Appeal in San Diego dismissed challenges by San Diego and San Bernardino counties, which objected both to the 1996 marijuana initiative and to recent legislation requiring counties to issue identification cards to users of medical pot.

The cards protect their holders from arrest by state or local police for possessing small amounts of marijuana.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the federal government can enforce its drug laws, which ban marijuana use and cultivation, against patients and their suppliers in California and the 11 other states that have legalized medical marijuana under their own laws.

But in Thursday's ruling, the appeals court said states remain free to decide whether to punish drug users under their own laws.

"The (federal) law does not compel the states to impose criminal penalties for marijuana possession," said Justice Alex McDonald in the 3-0 ruling, which upheld a Superior Court judge's decision.

"The purpose of the (federal law) is to combat recreational drug use, not to regulate a state's medical practices."

MJ News: Candidates Positions on Medical Marijuana

The following story discusses each candidate's stated position on medical marijuana.

Ever since California voters became the first in the nation to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, the state has faced unyielding opposition from the federal government, which insists it has the power to prohibit a drug it considers useless and dangerous.

That could all change with the next presidential election.

As the candidates prepare for a May 20 primary in Oregon, one of 12 states with a California-style law, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois has become an increasingly firm advocate of ending federal intervention and letting states make their own rules when it comes to medical marijuana.

His Democratic rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, is less explicit, recently softening a pledge she made early in the campaign to halt federal raids in states with medical marijuana laws. But she has expressed none of the hostility that marked the response of her husband's administration to California's initiative, Proposition 215.

MJ News: Police Rain on Nimbin's Mardi Grass

Complaints of not enough Marijuana at Festival due to police busts!


Police Search festival goers for drugs during Nimbin's Mardi Grass Festival.

A POLICE clampdown on cannabis smokers at Nimbin's annual Mardi Grass festival was allowing it to be taken over by amphetamine and alcohol use, an organiser said.

"The crowd are complaining there's not enough pot," Mardi Grass parade marshall Graeme Dunstan said of this weekend's festival.

"There's too much alcohol and too much speed, which people bring in from outside. The police go for cannabis because it's easy to spot."

Police have vowed to stamp out drugs in Nimbin. They sent officers from the riot, drug and mounted squads, plus regular officers, as an estimated 20,000 people gathered for a weekend of music, pot smoking and protest to demand the legalisation of cannabis.

"We are seeking to eliminate the supply of prohibited drugs," Richmond Local Area Command acting Superintendent Steve Clarke said on Friday. "We will not tolerate any breaches of any laws."

Michael Balderstone, president of the Nimbin Hemp Embassy, said the Nimbin community was furious about the police's approach. "You may as well get a stick and poke it in a hornet's nest. It's pointless. You can put us in jail for 20 years and you won't change our opinions."
