Federal Judge Richard A. Posner Calls For Legalization 0

Sep10

“I don’t think we should have a fraction of the drug laws that we have. I think it’s really absurd to be criminalizing possession or use or distribution of marijuana … I can’t see any difference between that and cigarettes.”

Judge Richard A. Posner, a member of the influential United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago, called for the legalization of marijuana during a lecture at Elmhurst College in Illinois. This comes from a man who is regarded as an intellectual monolith who is the most-cited judge in the United States, he is also considered a legal conservative. During his lecture, Judge Posner touched on his skepticism about drug criminalization laws as well as the huge financial burden those laws beset upon the local, state, and federal governments.

Oregon To Vote For Marijuana Legalization In November 0

Jul15

Oregonians backing the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act looking to put a measure for the legalization of marijuana have gathered 165,000 signatures backing the proposition, well over the 87,000 required to achieve a spot on the ballot.

Should this measure be passed, Oregon will become the third state to legalize marijuana. The legalization of the use and sale of marijuana will create jobs in the hemp industry as well as drive tax revenue straight into the state’s general fund. The Oregon Cannabis Tax Act would also form the Cannabis Commission, a governing body that shall oversee the cultivation and sale of marijuana, as well as implement rules and regulations concerning such.
