Story Number 1:
Back in 2015 Merriam-Webster Dictionary added more than a thousand new words to its online reference site and shockingly included the word Budtender. Now, just two years later and the Cannabis Culture’s influence on the world is apparent with words like “dabbing” and “Kush” being added to Dictionary.com this year.
In “Looks like their ready and rarin’ to go” news…
In a historic bipartisan move from the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee; a bill was approved making it legal to buy and sell marijuana in Texas. Two Republicans joined the committees three Democrats to give House Bill 2165 a 5-2 historic victory.
This same committee voted 4-2 in favor of a bill to decriminalize marijuana just two days prior. Expectation that bill 2165 will survive to make it into law is extremely low. Just the fact it made it out of committee in Texas is unprecedented.
If the bill does in fact move forward and becomes law it would make Texas the fifth state in the U.S. to legalize recreational marijuana.
Even more surprising is that the bill is being lead by a deeply conservative, Tea Party-backed Republican; who wrote an op-ed piece last month explaining why his belief in God, distrust of government and criticism of the “War on Drugs” led him to sponsor the marijuana legalization bill.
He says quote: “As a Christian, I recognize the innate goodness of everything God made and humanity’s charge to be stewards of the same, I don’t believe that when God made marijuana he made a mistake that government needs to fix.”
Story Number 3:
In another historic bipartisan effort both a Republican and Democrat from Florida introduced legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives that would reclassify marijuana as a Schedule 3 drug. If the bill were to become law, the new classification would make it easier for people to obtain medical marijuana and easier for researchers to obtain cannabis for further study.
Reclassifying marijuana to a schedule 3 would put it in the same group as anabolic steroids, Tylenol, and codeine.
Story Number 4:
Of the 54 million passengers who went through Denver International Airport in 2015, the T.S.A. stopped just 29 for possession of marijuana. In those cases, as long as the amount was legal for personal possession in Colorado — one ounce of dried flower, for example — the local police simply asked the flier to dispose of it, either by throwing it in the trash or taking it home. All 29 complied, and no tickets were issued.
T.S.A. agents with dogs that are sniffing people in line by security checkpoints are looking for explosives, not marijuana. Dogs assisting Customs and Border Protection agents, however, are searching for illicit drugs along with other illegal substances, but only among passengers arriving in the United States on international flights.
Musician Melissa Etheridge said she carries marijuana in her checked luggage, but always attaches her doctor’s recommendation to it. One time the T.S.A. left a note right on top of her weed saying they had inspected her luggage.
Story Number 5:
On 4/20 DCMJ, a community group fighting for equal rights for DC cannabis users, growers, and their families will be handing out 1,000 free marijuana joints to lawmakers, staff, journalists and anyone else over the age of 21 who displays a congressional ID on Capitol Hill. They are calling it the first congressional “joint session”.
The joint giveaway will take place near the Capitol building, but off federal grounds, at First Street NE and Constitution Avenue NE. It should be noted that Congress is in recess next week.
Things don’t stop for these guys on 4/20 though cause on 4/24 they are taking it up a notch by planning to openly smoke on federal lands, in order to invite arrest and challenge reform.
