Good morning NORML activists!

Last week, Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher​ and Sam Farr​ wrote a letter to The United States Department of Justice​ Inspector General Michael Horowitz asking him to investigate raids against medical marijuana dispensaries and growers in 2015. Rohrabacher and Farr are the same Congressmen who introduced last year's spending bill that was supposed to prevent the DOJ from using federal funds to harass the medical marijuana industry.

"Cases such as the Kettle Falls Five case in Washington, asset forfeiture actions against dispensaries in the San Francisco Bay area, or the Lynch case now pending in the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, are all instances of DOJ expending dollars it does not have the legal authority to spend," The congressmen wrote. The Congressmen point out that the DOJ is in violation of The Anti-Deficiency Act, which made it a crime to use federal money for purposes that are not approved by Congress.

Do you think the Department of Justice broke the law when they continued to harass medical marijuana? Tell us in the comments!

RESEARCH UPDATE:

A new study from the University of Pittsburgh​ Medical Center and Rutgers University​ tracked 408 males from teens until mid-30s to test for long-term effects of cannabis use.

"What we found was a little surprising," said lead researcher Jordan Bechtold, PhD, a psychology research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "There were no differences in any of the mental or physical health outcomes that we measured regardless of the amount or frequency of marijuana used during adolescence."

More proof that cannabis is the safest recreational substance you can enjoy!

Here's a great article on philly.com​ by Communications Director of PhillyNORML​ Chris Goldstein:
Military veterans are committing suicide. Prescription painkiller overdose deaths are skyrocketing. There is a national discussion around these issues. Medical marijuana can help. In these cases it could save lives.

From Marijuana World News​, "How Much marijuana Does It Take To Overdose?"

The answer: Over 1,500 pounds of flower in 15 minutes. That's how much herb it would take to have a lethal response. This is calculated from the LD-50 of cannabis, a measure of how lethal a substance is. What about dabs? It would still be hundreds of pounds of concentrates in 15 minutes to kill you, which is pretty impossible.

Why is one of the safest recreational substances illegal? Help it become legal again and join the #NORMLnation:

#MondayMotivation from #NORML and High Times​!

Last Friday the first medical marijuana was sold at Silver State Relief​ in Nevada, 15 years after medical marijuana laws were passed. About 75 people lined up outside to purchase their medicinal cannabis Friday morning, with a location between a submarine sandwich shop and a pizza shop. 

"Swan noted cardholders who come to Silver State Relief are not stereotypical stoners but normal people who use pot as medicine. He cited a young veteran with PSTD who told him marijuana is the only thing that gets him through the day."

This is a great development in Nevada, hopefully more dispensaries open in the state soon!

BY SCOTT SONNER AND MICHELLE RINDELS ASSOCIATED PRESS SPARKS, Nev. (AP) -- Fifteen years after Nevadans voted to legalize it, medical marijuana was sold legally in the state for the first time Friday at a dispensary in a strip mall about 5 miles east of downtown Reno. Dressed in polo shirts, tie-dyes and button-downs, about 75 people with medical marijuana cards lined up outside Silver State Relief, between a sub shop and pizza place in...

The question on many activist's mind is "Which 2016 Presidential candidate will support legalization?"

We still don't have a definite answer for you, but U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders​ has made some promising remarks about cannabis in an interview with Fusion and Univision.

In the interview, Sanders admit to smoking cannabis in his youth, saying he did it "a couple of times" and that it "Didn't do me much good. I ended up coughing a lot."

Even more promising, Bernie added that he would look at legalizing marijuana as president, and criticized drug laws that imprison non-violent offenders.

Do you think Bernie Sanders​ will be the legalization candidate this year? Maybe #FeelTheBern will have more than one meaning...

Bernie Sanders will consider legalizing marijuana if elected president he stated in an interview airing on Fusion and Univision.
