AG Sessions Announces Crackdown on Legal Pot – CNN: Cannabis News Network
www.marajuananews.com
(CNN) Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday rescinded a trio of memos from the Obama administration that had adopted a policy of non-interference with marijuana-friendly state laws." Happy New Year! It's 2018 and cannabis is legal in California for adult use! Sort of. It's not available in Los Angeles and San Francisco, the largest potential markets in the state. We break down the first week of legal weed and the end of Prop 215? We're back from our Colorado Cannabis Christmas with Boulder area dispensary and product haul reviews. Join us for DC 420: The Week in Weed, blunt commentary on this week's marijuana news, the politics of pot , cannabis cures and the fastest growing business in California and the US, but can still get you locked up for life in some states. http://www.youtube.com/c/DC420LA More from the Cannabis News Network - CNN: "The move essentially shifts federal policy from the hands-off approach adopted under the previous administration to unleashing federal prosecutors across the country to decide individually how to prioritize resources to crack down on pot possession, distribution and cultivation of the drug in states where it is legal. While many states have decriminalized or legalized marijuana use, the drug is still illegal under federal law, creating a conflict between federal and state law. Thursday's announcement is a major decision for an attorney general who has regularly decried marijuana use as dangerous. Sessions: DOJ looking at 'rational' marijuana policy Sessions: DOJ looking at 'rational' marijuana policy In a written statement Thursday, Sessions called the shift a "return to the rule of law" but he did not go as far as some advocates had feared he might, stopping short of explicitly directing more prosecutions, resources or other efforts to take down the industry as a whole. "In deciding which marijuana activities to prosecute under these laws with the department's finite resources, prosecutors should follow the well-established principles that govern all federal prosecutions," Sessions said in a memo to all federal prosecutors. "These principles require federal prosecutors deciding which cases to prosecute to weigh all relevant considerations of the crime, the deterrent effect of criminal prosecution, and the cumulative impact of particular crimes on the community." http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/04/politics/jeff-sessions-cole-memo/index.html Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, Allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

Este mes veremos la Ley Catalana aprobada que regula las Asociaciones Cannábicas... ¿Por fin será la marihuana legal en cataluña? Celebramos el 20 aniversario de Energy Control y el 20 aniversario de la Revista Cáñamo, que lo veremos en Informe Drogas. También nuestro 5º aniversario, que queremos celebrar con todas vosotras y vosotros. En Extracciones, seguimos investigando en la obtención de aceite de cannabis para las aplicaciones terapéuticas, Y en Top Cultivo, cómo le afecta el calor al cultivo de marihuana. el 28 de junio el Parlament de Catalunya ha aprobado una ley que por fin establece un marco jurídico a las más de 400 asociaciones cannábicas que hoy se encuentran en Cataluña, y que hace hincapié en la protección de los derechos de las personas usuarias y no en su criminalización como hasta ahora. Una ley pionera en Europa que sirve también de referente internacional como modelo de regulación integral. El grupo de estudios de políticas del cannabis, GEPCA presentó en Madrid, un modelo de regulación completo del ciclo del cannabis, que propone que las asociaciones de hasta 500 socios puedan producir hasta 150 kg de cogollos al año, o 6 plantas por persona para el cultivo personal. La revista Cáñamo, cumple 20 años de cultura y activismo cannábico que celebraron en el Hash Marihuana and Hemp Museum de Barcelona. ¿Queréis verlo? Clara estuvo allí y pudo hablar entre otros con Ben Dronkers, fundador del museo. FELICIDADES Cáñamo y toda la familia cañamera que habéis hecho posible esta valiente y activista revista desde hace 20 años. ¡Se dicen rápido! Gracias por ser los pioneros en informar y educarnos sin prejuicios, con cultura cannábica y mucho amor!
