A Texan Call To Action! 420 Specials on 4/19 at The Glass House Celebrating PAX with a Price Reduction! Featured Artist: Zach Puchowitz NEWS: Buy Online at The Glass House!
A Texan Call To Action!

Texas, oh Texas. You lift us up, teasing us with NORML and Marijuana Policy Project collaborations and waving legalization/decriminalization bill proposals in the air excitedly. Then just as we think we smell the sweet winds of change, which smell an awful lot like ganja, you tear us back down.

We’re a little down in the dumps today. Two very well-researched, well-written, all-around fantastic

Toke of the Town:

State Legalization Efforts

Marijuana is such a popular subject in politics and culture these days, it’s almost impossible to keep up with which states have updated the drug’s legal status and how. Every state’s laws are different, and where the drug is still illegal, penalties vary as do current advocacy efforts. How will you ever keep up? Enter High Times.

Every so often, High Times posts a legislative roundup to catch us all up on what we’ve missed. Yesterday, on such a fitting holiday as Memorial Day, they reminded us. Here are the states that have seen some movement (or the opposite):

  1. Texas. We’re depressed, and don’t feel like talking about Texas’ legislative failures anymore.

  2. Pennsylvania. Similarly to Texas’ problems, House

A First

May 21, 2015 marks an important moment for both the United States Senate and the veterans of our country’s armed forces. The Senate Appropriations Committee passed a bipartisan amendment allowing Veteran’s Administration (VA) doctors to recommend medical marijuana to patients in states where it’s legal. What a concept, right? And the VA is finally doing something right.

Before this amendment passed, law dictated that the VA explicitly could NOT recommend medical marijuana no matter what the state status. In fact, the VA was the ONLY federal healthcare denying physicians this right. The tragedy here is that veterans are a group to whom medical marijuana truly matters. The drug has been found to alleviate symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which continues to plague many of our soldiers as they return from deployment overseas. A 2014 study shows that

Get the Feds Off Our Back!

We’ve already had some bad news this week, so how about some good news? Although the Texas House of Representatives let us down in a big way by refusing to submit two excellent bill proposals, one decriminalizing marijuana and the other completely legalizing it, maybe the federal government can console us. Don’t worry, we’re not holding our breath for it.

At the end of April, the “Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2015” went before Congress. It says pretty much what you’d think, given the obvious title. If it passes, individuals and businesses who are minding their state marijuana laws will not be at any risk of federal charges. It still feels extremely silly to need such a bill, but as simple as it is, it is extremely important.

The Obama administration hasn’t been super supportive of legalization, but at least it stays out of the way. Who knows what we can

Texas, oh Texas. You lift us up, teasing us with NORML and Marijuana Policy Project collaborations and waving legalization/decriminalization bill proposals in the air excitedly. Then just as we think we smell the sweet winds of change, which smell an awful lot like ganja, you tear us back down.

We’re a little down in the dumps today. Two very well-researched, well-written, all-around fantastic bill proposals were shot down this week. The first was House Bill 507, which would have greatly reduced penalties for minor marijuana offenses. The second was House Bill 2165, which would have legalized and regulated marijuana.

Now, when we say they were shot down, we really mean they were never given the chances they deserved. Both of these bills were slated to go before the House of Representatives this session, but apparently Todd Hunter, House Calendar Committee authority, flat
