CBS Poll Reveals Support For Pot Reaches New High

He was a guest speaker at the Sudbury Alcohol and Drug Concerns Coalition's information session about marijuana and its possible legalization.

He says more discussions can unfold with federal and provincial officials now that the Liberal government has fired the starting gun by tabling its marijuana legislation last week.

The DEA remains concerned about diversion of marijuana to the black market, Mr. Baer said, but its priorities are focused elsewhere.

Representative Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat from OR, co-founded the Congressional Cannabis Caucus and has taken over stewardship of the amendment from Representative Sam Farr, who retired a year ago. "It's just a matter of getting a device that is handy enough that a police officer can use it on the roadside to make that determination". Sixty-five percent of people actually think that marijuana is less risky than other drugs as well, indicating increased public awareness of distinctions that marijuana advocates have been trying to draw for decades. Most Democrats and independents increasingly think marijuana use should be legal, while Republicans are divided. Those below the age of 18 will not be permitted to legally possess cannabis.

It's April 20th, or 420, a date long considered to be National Weed Day. Eighty-eight percent favor medical marijuana use.

Likewise, a small majority think the bill will fail to cut organized crime out of the marijuana industry, and half expect it to fail to prevent a surge in the number of people driving impaired. Up to four plants could be grown in a home for personal use.

Sessions likely won't have much public support if he pushes back against state marijuana laws, however.

Mourinho speaks on Ibrahimovic, Rojo injuries
No. (Academy coach) Nicky Butt doesn't take him to play that game. "The team played very well, especially for an hour". But faced with a growing injury list, Mourinho said he doesn't want to see Rashford playing at age-group level.

A few years later, some victims of the AIDS epidemic ravaging the USA began turning to pot to relieve pain, stimulate their appetites and help them sleep. If you've lost the battle to convince Americans that pot poses a special threat that booze doesn't, you've lost the battle, period. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that any revenues from the taxation of marijuana should be directed to addiction treatment, mental health services and public health education - initiatives Goodale said would be a key priority.

Prior to that, he was staunchly opposed to both drugs and alcohol.

Some are anxious that the marijuana business is getting too big too fast and predict a glut of California marijuana and sharp price declines. He said he doesn't smoke it to get high, rather, he uses it to alleviate the pain he suffers from multiple health issues.

"State governments often provide tax exemptions for prescription medications, " Jolley said. That includes $4.7 billion for medical marijuana and $1.9 billion for recreational. "Just as you would use a medicine over the counter from CVS or Walgreens, there are proper dosing sizes and different types [of marijuana] for different ailments".

"The most harm marijuana might cause is an increase in pizza orders", he said. I never smoked it.

"The federal government has laid down their framework and now it's up to the provinces and municipalities to flush it in", said Doherty. If they're forced to choose between defending Trump on the one hand, though, and siding with his pro-pot critics on the other, it wouldn't surprise me if they shift a bit against legalization.
