cannabis Washington, D.C. -- Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is facing pressure from marijuana advocates ahead of the first debate. As more states legalize medical and recreational marijuana, a number of presidential candidates from both sides of the aisle have called for looser drug policies to varying degrees.
Marijuana advocates say it is a positive step for their cause, but they would like to see stronger commitments from Clinton and some of the other candidates.

cannabis Oregon recently became the third state to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana. But unlike the massive national and international attention that greeted legalization in Colorado and Washington in 2012, Oregon’s new policy has not attracted much public reaction: What if we legalized marijuana and no one really cared?
That’s the overwhelming feeling I get standing inside Zion Cannabis in downtown Portland as customers buy marijuana from the friendly staff five days after legalized marijuana legislation went into effect Oct. 1.

cannabis Colorado -- Overcapacity in dispensaries in Colorado is driving down marijuana prices. Retail prices for marijuana have dropped in the third quarter, according to a marijuana store survey by Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist with Converge.
Colas surveyed retail outlets in Colorado and found that marijuana prices fell from $50-$70 for an eighth of an ounce to $30-$45. An ounce fell from $300-$400 to the lower end of $300 an ounce. Colas found that all of his contacts said that greater competition was the reason for the pricing pressure as more retail dispensaries and grow facilities were opened.

   Bernie Sanders Signals Support for Marijuana

cannabis Washington, D.C. -- Asked by CNN's Juan Carlos Lopez whether he'd support Nevada's 2016 ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana in that state, Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders answered "I suspect I would vote yes" to applause from the crowd.
Sanders' answer is significant because it marks the first time a 2016 candidate has openly declared support for legalizing recreational -- and not just medical -- marijuana. Asked earlier this year on Reddit about his views on marijuana, Sanders replied that he supported marijuana decriminalization as well as medical marijuana. He also hinted that he'd have more to say in coming months on the subject.

   Ohio Voters Support and Oppose MJ Legalizing

cannabis Ohio -- On Nov. 3, 2015, voters in Ohio will vote on two different ballot initiatives related to the legalization of marijuana. One initiative, Issue 3, was placed on the ballot by citizens and would legalize marijuana for both medical and personal use in Ohio.
The second initiative, Issue 2, was placed on the ballot by the legislature and would essentially negate Issue 3. Issue 2 would prohibit using the Ohio constitution to grant a monopoly, something the marijuana initiative does by naming only 10 sites for commercial cultivation of marijuana. (Fun fact: one parcel is partly owned by Nick Lachet of 98 Degrees and Jessica Simpson fame.) Issue 2 also contains a provision that would specifically prohibit Issue 3 from taking effect.

The case underscores disagreement over what chemicals should be allowed in the cultivation of pot and leaves the plaintiffs facing a dilemma: The U.S. government still regards almost all marijuana as an illicit drug and there are no federal safety guidelines for growing it.

Four states and Washington, D.C. have passed measures legalizing marijuana, and today 53 percent of Americans favor legalization and 44 are opposed. In 2006, those numbers stood at 32 percent in favor of legalization and 60 percent opposed, according to a survey from Pew Research Center.
The numbers have grown because of support among Baby Boomers, the group that came after them, Generation Xers, and the most recent generation, Millennials (those 18 to 34).

cannabis USA -- With states legalizing marijuana by popular vote, some politicians, including Boston mayor Marty Walsh and New Jersey governor Chris Christie, are still calling marijuana a gateway drug.
The gateway theory argues that because heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine users often used marijuana before graduating to harder drugs, it must be a “gateway” to harder drug use. The theory implies that there is a causal mechanism that biologically sensitizes drug users, making them more willing to try—and more desirous of—harder drugs.

The legislation, if it becomes law, would bar anyone under the age of 21 from possessing marijuana.

The decline is most notable for charges of petty marijuana possession, which dropped from an average of 714 per month during the first nine months of 2012 to 133 per month during the same period in 2013 — a decline of 81 percent.

   Marijuana Sales Exceed $5 Million In First Week

Colorado marijuana dispensaries made huge sales in the first week of legal recreational marijuana. Owners of the 37 new dispensaries around the state reported first week retail sales to The Huffington Post that, when added together, were roughly $5 million. That's a lot of green for Colorado's legal weed.

Colorado, the first state to allow retail recreational marijuana sales to adults age 21 and older, has projected nearly $600 million in combined wholesale and retail marijuana sales annually. The state, which expects to collect nearly $70 million in tax revenue from pot sales this year, won't have its first official glimpse at sales figures until Feb. 20, when businesses are required to file January tax reports, according to Julie Postlethwait of the state Marijuana Enforcement Division.

A year after voters put their state on track to become one of the only places in the world where marijuana can be legally owned and sold for purely recreational use, the state legislature still has to decide what to do with its rickety, fifteen-year-old medical-marijuana system. With the Department of Justice’s hawkish eyes trained on the state—determined to ensure that the drug, which is still illegal under federal law—remains under strict control, some bureaucrats and lawmakers are afraid that Washington’s unregulated medical-marijuana system could doom the whole experiment.

medical Phoenix -- Arguing that medical marijuana has been the most effective treatment for their son’s seizure disorder, the parents of a 5-year-old boy filed a lawsuit here on Monday to force state officials to include marijuana extracts — oil-like resins with very low levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC — as a legal product under the state’s medical marijuana act.
As it stands, the act, approved by voters in 2010, allows patients to use “any mixture or preparation” made with dried marijuana flowers, like brownies. The boy’s parents, Jacob and Jennifer Welton, have been crushing the flowers and mixing them into applesauce, which they say has become difficult for the boy to ingest after brain surgery last year compromised his ability to eat. They do not want to buy the extract, found on the black market, for fear of being arrested.
