Problems Ahead for Marijuana Reform

Delaware -- Any way you look at it, marijuana will be big in news in 2015. After all, 2014 was a good year for proponents of legalization with victories at the ballot box in several states and in Congress. The year was so good for marijuana that Delaware will finally open a long-awaited medical marijuana dispensary. In addition, the Delaware General Assembly is expected to at least decriminalize marijuana possession in the state. Possession of marijuana may finally be almost a non-criminal act in 2015.However, 2014 ended with an ominous legal action that could not only set back the legalization movement, but could create feuds between the states that could spread to other topics and put a greater emphasis on the difference between red and blue states.
Nebraska and Oklahoma have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to force the federal government to enforce U.S. laws. The sale and possession of marijuana is still illegal in the United States no matter what Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Oregon say. Nebraska and Oklahoma allege that Colorado’s 2012 legalization of marijuana sales has created a cross-border drug problem for them. Colorado, the lawsuit claims, is allowing Nebraska and Oklahoma residents buy marijuana in bulk there and then resell it in the neighboring states. Under the U.S. Constitution, states can go directly to the Supreme Court to settle arguments against with each other. So, if the court takes the case, we may see the Supreme Court having a say in whether you can smoke pot or not.Such a ruling could derail the pro-legalization movement. States with ballot measures are the target of pro-pot campaigns. Proponents target 2017 as the year marijuana becomes legal throughout the country. A Republican Congress is unlikely to do it, so the campaign is going state by state. It is raising a lot of money along the way.SnippedComplete Article: News Journal, The (Wilmington, DE)Published: December 27, 2014Copyright: 2014 The News JournalWebsite: -- Cannabis Archives

This is war! Why ..... 
..... aren't we using all of our weapons, our bombs?C'mon NORML, MPP, etc.! Take off the gloves!Safer, ..... my ass! 
We Cure cancer and so much more!What if the general public knew that Cannabis shrinks tumors, inhibits the plaque causing Alzheimer's, reduced the inflammation after traumatic brain injury and stroke, killed deadly MRSA, promotes neurogenesis, safely treats hundreds of ailments, provides the most nutritious foods on earth, and, a means of producing well over 30,000 earth friendly products, and, is in the Holy Anointing Oil, Chrism that God instructed Moses to prepare for anointing His priests, kings, prophets, and, as it turns out, His Christians, Anointed Ones?A different world?Voices Against Brain Cancer Announces Its Exclusive Partnership With The Cannabinoid Research Group of Complutense University in Madrid, SpainThe Cannabinoid Research Group of Complutense University in Madrid, Spain and Voices Against Brain Cancer, a national foundation headquartered in New York, announce today that a collaborative alliance has been signed by both organizations. The consideration of the benefits of Marijuana and the compounds contained within the plant known as "cannabinoids" for medicinal purposes is currently a prominent subject matter in North America. In an effort to fast track the propagation of accurate scientific based information on therapeutic opportunities incorporating cannabinoids, these two groups have formed an exclusive partnership in the United States."We have chosen Voices Against Brain Cancer to act as our voice in North America where they will support and herald our efforts," stated Manuel Guzmán, Chairman of The Cannabinoid Research Group. When asked about the research findings to date, Mr. Guzman noted that "published research clearly shows the anticancer action of cannabinoids impacting glioblastoma multiforma (GBM), and how chemotherapy results of tumor reduction are improved upon by adding cannabinoids as part of the treatment regimen.""We have an obligation to remain open minded about where the cure for brain cancer will come from, said Michael Klipper, Chairman of Voices Against Brain Cancer. Manuel Guzmán and his research team are world class leaders in the clinical research of cannabinoids and cancer." We recognize our responsibility to disseminate the information associated with the published research, which supports the medicinal legitimacy and can help guide patients and government lawmakers when considering the use of Cannabinoids."

Well, Is This a Chess Game I See Before Me?
Let's see if we can get this straight:On the one hand, behold the States of Nebraska and Oklahoma in hot pursuit of their rights as States as part of a larger union known as the United States of America.They Want the Laws of the Land to Be Upheld!On the other hand behold the States of Colorado and Washington in hot pursuit of their rights as states to initiate such ballot issues as they see fit and to abide by the results of those ballot issues that the citizenry deems fit to pass.THEY ALSO WANT THE LAWS OF THE LAND TO BE UPHELD!It's a double checkmate that puts the federal government right smack dab in the middle, where it had no business meddling in the first place.The obvious answer here is for President Obama to issue a presidential proclamation removing cannabis from schedule 1 to allow the states to go their own way on this issue. If you want a dry county, fine. That should be part of freedom.He could cite a "Compassionate Medicinal Emancipation Proclamation" or a similar euphemism for international consumption while becoming a hero at home.It would let everybody off the hook and cast his presidency in a favorable light to unforgiving historians generations hence.Come on, Mr. Pres., How about a pardon for us defectives? We work and pay taxes all of our lives, only to be labeled as criminals and buried in supposed disgrace?Hopefully, you are bigger than that. Time will tell.Just remember, during that time many will pass on from their sickness which thankfully, is only physical.For those suffering from a sick spirit, the endgame is insurmountable.FREE THE PRISONER OF SCHEDULE 1!PRESIDENT OBAMA, PARDON MARY JANE!SHE WAS THERE FOR YOU! HOW CAN YOU TURN YOUR BACK ON HER NOW?

A Supreme conundrum !
I would like to see the SC interfere with states rights in this case. But it is not likely? Either congress or a lower federal judge will rule THE CSA unconstitutional and the SC will let stand. It is all coming to a head now. I believe THE Plant will emerge victorious. Where can they go from here?
