Dying from a marijuana overdose in Washington and Colorado: weed turns you into a violent criminal

NICK Wing has a GIF showing all of the people who have died after overdosing on pot:


In the US, Attorney General Eric Holder says the Department of Justice would allow Colorado and Washington to create a regime that would regulate and implement the ballot initiatives that legalised the use of marijuana for adults. The two states voted in November 2012 to approve initiatives for legalised marijuana. Problem is that under federal law, weed is illegal. So. Does State law trump national law?

In a word, yes. But Holder says the State must include “strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems”.

Smurfing: how the US war on drugs makes criminals of tourists

THE USA’s attitude to marijuana is mixed. Brannon P. Denning, Samford University – Cumberland School of Law, considers the problem of one American’s rights being another man’s crime in a paper called:  One Toke Over the (State) Line: Constitutional Restrictions on State ‘Pot Tourism’ Restrictions:

Among the myriad legal issues confronting states like Colorado that are experimenting with the legalization of marijuana is the need to regulate “pot tourism” by persons from other states where marijuana is not legal. In Colorado, the final recommendations from the Amendment 64 Implementation Task Force included a proposal, “to limit purchases by state residents to an ounce at a time and to a quarter of an ounce for out-of-state visitors.” The lower restrictions for nonresidents are designed to deter pot tourists from “smurfing” — visiting a number of different dispensaries to accumulate larger amounts of marijuana with a view to illegally reselling the pot. Colorado’s legislature adopted the Task Force’s recommendation in House Bill 1317, recently signed into law by Colorado’s governor, which established the regulatory framework for the legal sale of marijuana. Among its provisions is a quarter-ounce purchase limit for nonresidents.

Obama speaks in favour of decriminalising marijuana

BACK in 1994, Barack Obama was keen to rethink the failing war on drugs.

During his first term the key member of the Choom Gang did nothing. And then on the day of his re-election to a second and final term – the time when legacies are written – Colorado passed Amendment 64 to legalise marijuana for recreational use.

How the Colorado marijuana business works

MARIJUANA is now legal on Colorado. How does the market work? Tony Dokoupil explains:

After Eric Holder and the Obama administration suggested that they weren’t going to crack down on medical marijuana, everybody and their brother grabbed a trash bag full of weed out of their backyard and were like, ‘All right, medical marijuana here for sale!’ … Then Colorado was really interesting … because there’s a core of young, educated, politically connected and well-financed guys who said, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa. We can’t have former black market drug dealers and bikini girls as the face of our industry, because the community’s not going to accept it.

“So they partnered with law enforcement. They partnered with state legislators. They hired incredibly high-level political consultants and lobbyists who have worked nationally. And they are the inside force that led to the creation of Colorado’s regulated medical marijuana industry, which is unlike any in the country and which will be the basis for the legalized, regulated market. And so in response to the craziness that we saw in 2009 … a movement toward controlled, regulated, not-in-your-face, nonconfrontational pot culture has begun.”

Britain Needs A 420 Movement To Legalise Weed: Photos Of Colorado’s Marijuana Protests

AT 4:20 pm, 10,000 weed smokers (or was it 15,000? I forget) massed in the Norlin Quad a at the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus to create a fog of smoke. It’s annual marijuana day, people. Smoking weed is not for the individual – in the US it’s an organised event.

Will the protest and others like it achieve much? Smoking weed is not about achieving – it’s about doing not very much at all.

The Boulder Daily Camera meets one toker called Robert Loddin:

“I am smoking weed like it’s oxygen.”

America Is Stealing Your Vote

READ Block The Vote. And the comic book: Steal Back Your Vote:

  • Republican Secretaries of State of swing-state Colorado have quietly purged one in six names from their voter rolls.
  • While Obama dreams of riding to the White House on a wave of new voters, more then 2.7 million have had their registrations REJECTED under new procedures signed into law by George Bush. Kennedy, a voting rights lawyer, charges this is a resurgence of ‘Jim Crow’ tactics to wrongly block Black and Hispanic voters.
  • A fired US prosecutor levels new charges – accusing leaders of his own party, Republicans, with criminal acts in an attempt to block legal voters as “fraudulent.”
  • Digging through government records, the Kennedy-Palast team discovered that, in 2004, a GOP scheme called “caging” ultimately took away the rights of 1.1 million voters. The Rolling Stone duo predict that, this November 4, it will be far worse.
