Roger Morgan doesn’t like cannabis and he doesn’t think you should be using it. While he begrudgingly admits medical marijuana might be here to stay, all other uses of the cannabis plant are anathema to him and he believes they should be strictly outlawed.
I know what you’re thinking: who the hell is Roger Morgan and why should you care what he thinks about marijuana?
Medical marijuana will have a chance once again in the Sunshine State this year, thanks to the Florida Right to Medical Marijuana, also known as Amendment 2. The same initiative came on the ballot back in 2014 in Florida, but sadly was just shy of receiving the support it required to pass. Many believe this was due to the voter turnout that year. Many people are very hopeful for a larger turnout this year, as it is a presidential election year. Presidential elections tend to bring more people to the ballots, and this is especially true for younger voters.
The medical marijuana ballot measure backed by the Marijuana Policy Project in Ohio that we have been reporting on has already hit a snag. Last week Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine rejected Ohioans for Medical Marijuana’s submitted language for the measure, saying it contained several discrepancies.
As marijuana law reform sweeps the United States, we cannot forget about the U.S. territories that suffer under cannabis prohibition as well. Alejandro Garcia Padilla, the Governor of the U.S. Territory Puerto Rico, recently called for marijuana legalization in P.R.
Padilla says legalization will bring lower crime to P.R.; the territory’s recently approved medical marijuana and decriminalization bill await action by the legislature, but recreational legalization is a natural extension of these policies.
