Here's another interesting article from News 21's cannabis legalization project:

One of the biggest struggles for legalization regulation is how to determine what constitutes "driving under the influence". The current 5 nanogram THC law that exists in Colorado can unfairly target medical patients or regular consumers, due to the fact that THC can remain in the body days after consumption.

Paul Armentano, Deputy Director of NORML, is quoted in the article saying "In every state already, it is a criminal violation to drive under the influence of a substance that can impair judgment. There is no need to amend those laws in a manner that is entirely arbitrary and unscientific. If we’re concerned about individuals driving impaired, then the last thing we ought to do is amend the traffic safety laws so that a guilty conviction is divorced from any evidence of impairment."

What do you think about the current DUID limits in Colorado? Tell us in the comments!

Law enforcement deals with impaired drivers every day. But discrepancies in legal limits and testing procedures vary from state to state.

It's absurd!!!
"Essentially, in Oregon and other states that use carboxy-THC test results as evidence of impairment, a jury could find a driver guilty of being under the influence of marijuana based on carboxy-THC levels, even though the driver may have ingested the drug several hours, days or weeks earlier and was not impaired at the time of his or her arrest."
If someone's not driving well, then pull them over and do a "sobriety test" for impairment.  Don't ruin their life because of some phony piss test!

Another article out of News 21's cannabis project: "East New York: It's still law enforcement target for marijuana possession".

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio​ decriminalized marijuana possession in 2014, yet police are still constantly patrolling low-income neighborhoods in the city for marijuana citations.

The New York City administration and police decriminalized minor marijuana possession, but the racial disparity within the violations persists. Stop, question and frisk incidents are at an all-time low and The Brooklyn District Attorney.

More good news from Wyoming!

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle​ has come out in support of NORML Wyoming​'s medical marijuana initiative. The paper had previously supported decriminalization efforts, but now has changed its stance and supports giving the citizens of Wyoming the access to medicine that they deserve. 

“We previously have favored decriminalization for small amounts of the drug but not any form of legalization. Yet there is enough anecdotal evidence that we have come to believe medical marijuana can - in certain and controlled circumstances - be beneficial to people in Wyoming.”

You can donate to Wyoming NORML's medical marijuana initiative here: http://www.gofundme.com/z5dk74cg (They have $8,700 out of $15,000 raised in a month!)

From The Telegraph​, "American Indian tribes plan to make marijuana a cash crop".

Due to tribal land's unique legal status, many Native American tribes are now looking to grow and regulate cannabis through the same mechanism they can operate casinos.

Allen St. Pierre, Executive Director of NORML, is quoted in the article saying “It is certainly significant, America has seen some tribes go from being economically disadvantaged to becoming powerful economic and political players through the introduction of one industry, gambling. Now the same could be happening with marijuana.”

Do you think this is a good development for legalization?

Check out this terrific article from News 21's 'America's Weed Rush' project!

Journalists from News 21 compiled this extremely thorough and up-to-date synopsis of the current state of cannabis in the U.S. From Arizona, California, and every other state looking at ballot initiatives in 2016, to the groups like NORML and MPP who are leading the charge, this is an excellent overview of the status of legalization in America.

Advocacy groups have poured millions of dollars into legalizing both recreational and medical marijuana in states across the country.
