You could have 1,000 pounds in your hotel room right now and you might be charged with just a misdemeanor. There's romance with marijuana. People think it's a harmless herb. But environmental crimes make people

Yasir Naqvi

Illicit cannabis dispensaries are not legal now and will not be legal retailers under the new model. ... These pot dispensaries are illegal and will be shut down. If you operate one of these facilities, consider yourself on

Alan Down

The police officer who came to see me said he specialised in drugs. He knew of several plants that smelled like cannabis but he couldn't see them in the garden. The smell is so distinct, it really does smell like cannabis. It's more intense when it's hot and

Ed Gillespie

He "supports passage of legislation such as [Vogel's] SB 1298 to allow the use of medical marijuana and CBD oil when scientific research has demonstrated the benefit of this as an effective treatment for serious

Steven Davenport

Some consumers will prefer higher priced brands, but there will always be a market for the brand that can produce adequate quality cannabis at the cheapest

Nicholas Chroussis

As university students we smoke a little cannabis, and about 80 per cent of students have inhaled laughing gas - it's not cocaine or heroin. We are just having fun. When I finish my degree I will have about £50,000 of debts and now this criminal conviction will probably affect my career prospects and ability to pay that

David Shulkin

Right now, federal law does not prevent us at VA to look at that as an option for veterans. There may be some evidence that this is beginning to be helpful and we're interested in looking at that and learning from

Robert Glatter

The exact cause is really unclear. Some research indicates that it may be related to a genetic polymorphism in what we call the cytochrome P450 enzyme system, which is how we metabolize

Robert Glatter

The patients often don't easily volunteer this history. In states that have legalized, I think it's easier to ascertain that history because they're more willing to come forward. [It could be] endocrine, metabolic, something structural causing the vomiting, it could be a bowel obstruction or gallstones. To the patient who is newly presenting, you have to do the full workup. You don't want to miss

Robert Glatter

When there is less blood flow to the gut and intestines, symptoms of nausea and vomiting are

Robert Glatter

I would see people in the emergency department with heavy and chronic [marijuana] use who would have these vomiting syndromes with abdominal pain, and we just didn't know what it was. If you look at the pharmacology of cannabinoids, there are multiple types of cannabinoids, and at low doses, the majority of these cannabinoids are antiemetic. But with higher and heavier usage what you develop is this paradoxical effect, this incidence of vomiting and

Henry Wykowski

Things like this sort of take on a life of their own, and somebody who is obviously anti-cannabis has decided to push it. They think that this is the Achilles' heel. It is scary stuff. I just hope that the defendants get really good lawyers, because this could have an effect on the entire

Eugene Monroe - Baltimore Ravens

Whatever happens in terms of my professional football career, I will never stop pushing for the League to accept medical cannabis as a viable option for pain management. I will do everything I can to ensure the generations of NFL players after me won't have to resort to harmful and addictive opioids as their only option for pain

Jacob Soboroff - MSNBC

There are studies that indicate in states where medical marijuana is legal, overdoses and deaths from opioids are down. But that becomes a complicated, partisan–in many respects–policy debate… Until ideological barriers, partisan barriers can come down around solutions to this, nothing is going to

Hannah Hetzer

It is ironic that laws aimed at fighting drug trafficking and money laundering have created a roadblock for a system that intends to do just that. Uruguay is creating a legal market that displaces the illicit marijuana

Jeff Sessions

Dosages can be constructed in a way that might be beneficial, I acknowledge that, but if you smoke marijuana, for example, where you have no idea how much THC you're getting, it's probably not a good way to administer a medicinal amount. So forgive me if I'm a bit dubious about

Dan Baum

The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or blacks, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we

Lyle Craker - Amherst

I've filled out the forms, but I haven't heard back from them. I assume they don't want to answer,'. They need to think about why they are holding this up when there are products that could be used to improve people's health. I think marijuana has some bad effects, but there can be some good and without investigation we really don't

Rusty Payne - Drug Enforcement Administration

Mexican cartels, Mexican transnational organizations are the greatest criminal threat to the United States. There's no other group currently positioned to challenge them.

The current studies highlight the real and urgent need for high-quality clinical trials in both of these areas. If cannabis is being considered for medical use, it should certainly be after all well-established treatments have

Isabelle Claudet

Policymakers should take in consideration this evolution and such intoxication should be tightly monitored and it should be mandatory to report such cases. A solution has to be (found) to regulate THC concentration in cannabis and stop its increasing

Isabelle Claudet

Mick Cooper

They would have the same challenges as any drug developer – i.e. they would have to demonstrate safety, efficacy in a specific indication and consistency of product. It is worth emphasising the manufacturing issue, as the levels of THC and other chemicals produced by a cannabis plant will vary depending on conditions. It might be very difficult to produce a medicinal cannabis that is sufficiently consistent to meet the demands of the

Daniel Pryor

The main harms of criminalisation come from putting it into the black market, and in the knock-on effect on the criminal justice system. In the medium term we see [decriminalisation] as a possibility. If the Conservatives want to reconnect with young voters it would be a very good way of demonstrating they're in tune with their

Michael Steinmetz

David Boyer

Mainers will no longer be punished for using a substance that is safer than alcohol. This will allow law enforcement to focus on serious crimes and save Maine millions in enforcement costs. We look forward to working with the legislature to ensure a timely implementation of Question 1, which will provide adults with a legal way to purchase marijuana from licensed and regulated

Simon Pope

I would have really liked to have attempted to get a prosecution under the modern-day slavery offences because they were being exploited. This is becoming more and more common – these cannabis factories, with gardeners held in poor conditions, given little to no

Chloe Setter

It is extremely concerning that modern slavery charges were dropped in this case, when there was clearly reason for the police to believe that several people were being exploited. It appears those thought to have been victims of a major organised criminal network potentially making millions from their exploitation have received little to no support, and the risk of retrafficking barely

Paul Franklin

We could prove that they were locked in. We had the key to get in, but we didn't find any keys on them. They were certainly locked in but that's not enough to get it convicted beyond all reasonable

Support for liberal marijuana use is partly due to claims that it is beneficial and possibly not harmful to health. It is important to establish whether any health benefits outweigh the potential health, social and economic risks. If marijuana use is implicated in cardiovascular diseases and deaths, then it rests on the health community and policy makers to protect the

Tim Dickinson

East Coast reporters thought anyone who wanted to use medical marijuana was just a hippie trying to pull one over on people. It's a different world than the one we grew up in. The strip mall now has a Walgreens, a grocery store and a dispensary. We're watching where this is headed. We have to be

Charles Perry

The Army has taken hundreds of thousands of students out of school and plopped them into what seems like a marijuana-heaven on earth. In Vietnam, you can buy marijuana already processed into cigarette form, packaged 10 to the pack (200 to the carton), and a pack costs a

I started my career as a baby prosecutor during the height of the crack epidemic – not all drugs are equal. We have over-criminalized so many people, in particular poor youth and men of color, in communities across this country and we need to move it on the schedule. Plus we need to start researching the effect of marijuana and we have not been able to do it because of where it is on the

We thought that showing that there was a viable means of having a cannabis-friendly municipality and further making it energy independent could be a way of really inspiring folks to say, Why can't we do that here? The [idea] here isn't to create 'Woodstock 2017'. It's about creating an environment where people come to work and share in a

David Gwyther - American Green

We are excited to lead the charge for a true 'Green Rush'. The Cannabis Revolution that's going on here in the US, has the power to completely revitalize communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century. This acquisition allows us to channel the myriad interests in cannabis production and consumption for an immediate positive impact to this community's members and to cannabis consumers across the country. As industry leaders since 2009, we are thrilled to begin work on this first-of-its-kind eco-tourism experience for conscious cannabis

Joe Shrank

We know anecdotally, but with a lot of confidence, that it helps people with detox and it helps people stay off opiates. If we're dropping almost 100 bodies a day [due to the opioid crisis], we should be looking at all options. If there are people who want to use cannabis to get off and stay off opioids ... I'm, like, good with that. You're not gonna drop dead. You're gonna have chances in

Susan Collins

I do not support a national, a federal effort to decriminalize marijuana. We're in the midst of an opioid crisis in this country, and I think the last thing we need is for the federal government to send a signal that marijuana should be legalized across this

Dianne Feinstein

I'm not there. I think there's a lot about marijuana we don't know. I think marijuana has potential dangers to it. I think they need to be looked at – calibrated. I think we need to be concerned about young people, without judgement, particularly in cars. Particularly on Saturday night, smoking marijuana,

Corey Booker

They're actually seeing positive things coming out of that experience. Now I believe the federal government should get out of the illegal marijuana

Tom Angell

This is the single most far-reaching marijuana bill that's ever been filed in either chamber of Congress. More than just getting the federal government out of the way so that states can legalize without [Drug Enforcement Administration] harassment, this new proposal goes even further by actually punishing states that have bad marijuana laws. Polls increasingly show growing majority voter support for legalization. So this is something that more senators should be signing onto right

Lamar Odom

I never wanted to touch anything stronger than marijuana. I definitely never touched cocaine. I actually looked down on it. I didn't try it until I was 24 years old, when I was on summer vacation in Miami. And … I wish I could tell you there was a reason for it. There wasn't. It was just an asinine decision I made. If I knew that it was going to affect my life the way it did, I would've never even thought about it. Never. But I did it. It turned out to be a life-altering

There was no remorse, only a smirk. The kids were at the park that day smoking marijuana and apparently saw him walk into the water. He walked in on his own. They were watching him.

Andy Harris

Once you get past those three, maybe some people with myoclonus from multi-sclerosis, there really is little evidence. There's no evidence really on PTSD – no good objective evidence. You know the latest claim that is totally unfounded is that somehow we should use medical marijuana to treat opioid dependence. If we're going to call it a medicine, we need to approach marijuana the same way we would approach anything else that's sold as a medicine in the United States, and that is with rigorous scientific research. Which is just too difficult to do under the current

Andy Harris

Earl Blumenauer

The federal government has been a tremendous obstacle, and there shouldn't be these unresolved questions. We should be able to have product uniformity. We shouldn't have to guess about the impacts. I mean, there's anecdotal evidence that is very powerful, but it should be peer-reviewed, gold standard research, and the federal government has prevented that. And I don't think anybody objects to being able to get rid of those

Morgan Griffith

You know most of your research facilities don't want to invest in something where they might be in trouble a year from now or two years from now. So we want to give them that stability that as long as you're using it to research for medicinal purposes, let's use it. And of course as I've always said, if we can use opiates and barbiturates, we certainly ought to be able to use marijuana for medicinal

Even if Brink's isn't trying to capture the marijuana market share directly, there are only so many armored trucks in this country, and when demand for them surges from one particular industry, you better believe that's going to help with pricing across the board.

Marijuana laws in America are broken. So it's time that we reverse that, on the right, on the left, Christian and evangelical, fiscal conservatives, libertarians, liberals, moderates, people from every background now realize that these policies were wrong and misguided, and morally bankrupt.

We're concerned about what we're seeing. We see strong evidence of an increased crash risk in states that have approved recreational marijuana sales. Colorado has had legal pot sales the longest and it is showing the greatest effect. Meanwhile, Oregon has had pot sales for the shortest amount of time, so its increase is the lowest, but that could change over

I think we shouldn't restrict research into any drugs looking for a potential health benefit. I think right now with marijuana being Schedule I, it's very hard to do research. So one of the good aspects is changing to Schedule II so we can actually do more research on what might help

Corey Booker

I served with Senator Sessions. He never hid his belief that he wanted to make sure marijuana stayed illegal, even in medical cases. In his letter he misrepresents the facts by talking about this being a historical moment of crisis in terms of marijuana. Almost like he's confusing the opioid crisis, which actually medical marijuana is one way to alleviate that crisis. So we have someone who is demonstrating ignorance of the facts, no compassion when it comes to families that are

You know we have a lot of terminal patients who want the right to try certain medications. We also have a lot of patients who may not necessarily be terminal but are very sick and may have an incurable disease, and they do get some benefit from marijuana.

The range we have is like having whiskeys and beers alongside Chardonnay. There's a new demographic looking to cannabis, such as baby boomers who realise they don't need to take Ambien to get to sleep

The cannabis industry is often pigeonholed as being very heavy users of resources. It's true we do have those needs but we are being evaluated against agriculture that's been around for hundreds of years. No-one could really do the research on lighting or other technology until we could step into the light with legalization, the innovation since then has been

It won't quite be like Amsterdam cafes but it will allow consumption in certain permitted places. People are interested to see how it goes. Most people think that cannabis is part of the fabric now, that it's a business that isn't going

We hope for a quick response from those who are seeking exclusivity in marijuana distribution. We are committed to ensuring that the vote of the people to provide for the legal purchase of marijuana from a strictly regulated market will proceed on July

We do not have any qualified liquor wholesale dealers to license as marijuana distributors at this

Corey Booker

The fact is our marijuana laws in America are broken. They are savagely broken, and the jagged pieces are hurting American people. I dare him to sit down with families and listen to their stories and then pursue a policy like he's advocating for

David Kerr

Those who binge drink may be more open to marijuana use if it is easy to access. Whereas those who avoid alcohol for cultural or lifestyle reasons might avoid marijuana regardless of its legal

We have him ignoring his commands. He's got a gun. He might be the robber. He's got marijuana in his car. Those are the things in Officer Yanez's

I will treat this provision consistently with my constitutional responsibility to take care that the laws be faithfully

They're integrating their branding into the Native American community, and they're promoting the idea that these products are safe, and something that everybody does, and that changes social norms. That makes the job of the people whose mission to reduce the introduction of drugs or other potentially risky behavior more

These are the battles we're going to have to fight as the cannabis industry spreads its tentacles. It just makes me

In my lifetime and my 35 years working in public health across Native country, I've never seen anybody use cannabis for ceremony. I've seen peyote, and in a ceremonial context, that can do a lot of good. But I've also seen it

We have so much trauma. The taking of our land, loss of our languages, poverty, violence, sexual abuse from the boarding-school days–because of it, we are super vulnerable. We have a much higher propensity to

When it comes to any sort of medicine, whether pain pills or cannabis or tobacco, it has to be administered with compassion. In order for it to help, it has to be done with

It's going to take an act of Congress to clear up some of these contradictions between state and federal law. These paraphernalia laws are outdated. Keeping kids safe should be more important than outdated

The whole point of this product is to minimize harm to [children] that we're trying to

There is no doubt that cannabis is a trendy drug right now. The risk perception of cannabis is very low. In Spain we have lived through a heroin epidemic in the eighties, a cocaine epidemic in the late nineties and we dealt with them. I think society will only realize the potential harm of cannabis in the future when those that are now abusing the drug will seek

It seems that Spain is a particular target for these organizations but it is not the only one. This production, we think, again, we cannot be 100 per cent certain, but it seems that most of the production is exported out of Spain and sold in other cannabis markets for example in France, in UK, maybe in Sweden… depending on the country these organizations are

Laurent Laniel

Cannabis resin has always been a very plentiful product in Spain, like in France, or Italy, and it is also the case that now the herb is more frequent that cannabis resin. So in this sense Spain is part of a general European trend. As a result of the previous trend Europe is becoming a larger producer of cannabis than it used to be in the past. The growing of cannabis is becoming a business in many countries and Spain it seems is certainly one of those which has recently been taken in this movement very

Laurent Laniel

There is a whole range of actors for cannabis production (in Spain) like in the rest of Europe; small growers grow for themselves and their friends, but we think most of the plants seized come from commercial plantations owned by people who are organized criminals. This can be a Spanish based organization producing for the Spanish market, but we know by qualitative information that we get from the Spanish police and several other sources that there are also foreign organizations operating in

Jeff Sessions

I believe it would be unwise for Congress to restrict the discretion of the Department to fund particular prosecutions, particularly in the midst of an historic drug epidemic and potentially long-term uptick in violent crime. The Department, must be in a position to use all laws available to combat the transnational drug organizations and dangerous drug traffickers who threaten American

In addition to the growing rooms, there were drying rooms, nurseries and living quarters for the growers – it was a sophisticated set up with an illegal connection to the mains electrical

This was an enormous discovery for our Local Priority Team – I believe it was the biggest cannabis factory we've ever had in Wiltshire and the South West region. The isolated and secure nature of the location made the warrant particularly challenging. The bunker itself had approximately 20 rooms inside over two floors, and almost every single room had been converted for the wholesale production of
