Republicans Boehner and Weld Join Cannabis Board

Republicans Boehner and Weld Join Cannabis Board

While Nixon has spoken out about recreational legalization in NY before, this discussion on how it correlates to the issue of racial inequality is particularly refreshing and needed. "I remain concerned that legalization will result in increased abuse of all varieties of drugs, including alcohol", according to NORML, a marijuana advocacy group.

Paul Ryan, Boehner's successor when he resigned as speaker in 2015, had talked about the work of getting the smell of cigarette smoke out of the speaker's office after Boehner's departure. "I find myself in that same position".

Last month, Gov. Phil Murphy called for several key changes to New Jersey's medical marijuana program, including adding more places patients could buy weed and getting rid of a requirement that prevented some doctors for participating. He said he is convinced de-scheduling the drug is needed to do research, help the veterans, and reverse the opioid epidemic ravaging the communities.

In 2016, he lent his support to the referendum that led to legalization of recreational marijuana in his home state. The announcement by Boehner and Weld "should send shockwaves throughout the industry and act as a positive catalyst for the sector as a whole", Ajamian said, reports Bloomberg News. They go on to say that legalization reduces the likelihood that those growing and selling cannabis will be involved in gang activity while the regulation of a legal market frees up police resources to combat other crimes.

The findings are the result of a comparison between Washington state, after it legalized in 2012, and the neighboring state of OR, which legalized two years later in 2014.

It's playoff time: The NBA's first-round pairings are set
The Rockets went just 3-3 in April, but considering they were 28-1 from January 29-March 30, there is no doubting their abilities. The Process is finally delivering the expected results and the 76ers are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Boehner also said the move would curtail federal-state conflict on marijuana policies.

Starting in 2013, card-holding medical marijuana patients had been able to walk into the GreenMed Wellness Center on Circulo Mercado in Rio Rico to browse and buy various marijuana products.

"We need to look no further than our nation's 20 million veterans, 20 percent of whom, according to a 2017 American Legion survey, reportedly use cannabis to self-treat PTSD, chronic pain, and other ailments", the statement continues.

Cannabis advocates have lauded the former Congressman's public shift in favor of cannabis.

Instead, prior research shows that cannabis legalization results in decreased crime rates, supporting the most recent study.
