my latest #Philly420  at Philly.com "N.J.'s failed medical #marijuana law and other states eager to repeat it"
New Jersey’s medical marijuana program is a failed experiment but one that Delaware and other states seem enthusiastic to repeat. The reality is that after years of delays and harsh over-regulation, NJ residents with serious illnesses and even state-issued marijuana ID cards continue to be arrested. Limited or no access is the issue. Governor Chris Christie played doctor again last week making political spin out of therapeutic cannabis and the he...

my latest #Philly420 at Philly.com ---Who really benefits from illegal marijuana in New Jersey?
When a little known committee dismissed a complaint filed against a New Jersey Assemblywoman, it shined some rare sunlight on an industry raking in a healthy profit from marijuana prohibition: Substance abuse prevention and treatment centers.  The Joint Committee for Ethical Standards at the New Jersey Legislature on Tuesday dismissed a complaint filed against Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini (R. Montmouth) who had been accused of appearing to ben...

Why is the Department of Homeland Security busting protesters with joints? my latest at Freedomisgreen.com
We can see just how the federal government feels about marijuana legalization in their militarized response to a group of Americans openly carrying a little bit of cannabis.

new #Philly420 follows a Lobbying day in Washington DC for marijuana legalization. Quotes from Congressman Jared Polis + Grover Norquist
Marijuana will not legalize itself. That’s why senior citizens, military veterans, college students and some of the most seasoned cannabis reform activists in the country gathered to speak with members of Congress on Monday, June 17th. The “Lobby Days” were organized by campus organizers Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) and The Silver Tour, a marijuana advocacy group comprised of seniors. Buses were run for free to participants (almost un...

my latest #Philly420  column for Philly.com 
Our nation's capital is putting a pragmatic new policy into place today: removing criminal penalties for adults caught with small amounts of marijuana (SAM). Instead of being arrested and facing jail, they will be issued a civil fine of $25 in the form of a ticket. No handcuffs, no holding cells, no criminal records.

I'm quoted in the Philly Weekly today ... ""So what did Holder offer for marijuana advocates yesterday? “Almost nothing,” Goldstein says, “and that’s really the sad part.”""

Audio link: Philly DA Seth Williams and me in-stdio on WHYY Radio Times talking about the racial disparity to marijuana prohibition enforcement
http://www.whyy.org/radiotimes The United States Conference of Mayors just passed a resolution saying that states should have their own marijuana policies without interference from the federal government. This, along with 18 states legalizing medical marijuana, is another example of changing attitudes towards the drug. The PEW Research Center for the People and the Press released a recent poll that 52 percent of the public believes the marijuana ...

Gov Chris Christie wants taxpayers to foot the bill to send cannabis consumers to 1 year of rehab....my Star Ledger OPED 8/2012
The governor has exhibited hardcore politicking on medical marijuana law in defiance of the public and the Legislature.

#Philly420 at Philly.com was first out locally this week w an article on the ACLU report on marijuana...included all the important NJ/PA stats 6/4/2013
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) published a landmark report today showcasing one of the biggest problems with marijuana prohibition: A costly racial bias to arrests. According to the report, Pennsylvania and New Jersey each spend more than $100 million dollars every year arresting people for a small amount of marijuana. Enforcement targets Black residents. The ACLU looked at every state and found the deeply disturbing practice across th...
