CAN COLORADO DO IT?

Can Colorado Do It

By: Benjamin Horner

Amendment 64 was put together by the by The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. Amendment 64 is a 2012 statewide ballot initiative to end marijuana prohibition and regulate marijuana like alcohol in Colorado.  According to the campaign’s website:

*“In summary, Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act:

·         Makes the personal use, possession, and limited home-growing of marijuana legal for adults 21 years of age and older;
·         Establishes a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol; and
·         Allows for the cultivation, processing, and sale of industrial hemp.
·         In particular, Amendment 64 removes all legal penalties for personal possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and for the home-growing of up to six marijuana plants, similar to the number allowed under current medical marijuana laws, in an enclosed locked space.

The initiative creates legal marijuana establishments – retail stores, cultivation facilities, product manufacturing facilities, and testing facilities – and directs the Department of Revenue to regulate a system of cultivation, production (including infused products), and distribution.  Under the provisions of the measure, the Department will license marijuana establishments at the state level, and should it fail to act, localities will be permitted to issue such licenses.  Localities will have the right to ban marijuana establishments through either their elected representative bodies, or through referred or citizen-initiated ballot measures.

The general assembly will be required to enact an excise tax of up to 15 percent on the wholesale sale of non-medical marijuana applied at the point of transfer from the cultivation facility to a retail store or product manufacturer.  The first $40 million of revenue raised annually will be directed to the Public School Capital Construction Assistance Fund. This new tax must be approved by a majority of voters in a statewide general election in accordance with the Colorado Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR). The general assembly will also be required to enact legislation governing the cultivation, processing, and sale of industrial hemp.

The initiative does not change existing medical marijuana laws for patients, caregivers, or medical marijuana businesses. Medical marijuana will be exempt from the excise tax mentioned above. “*

Mason Tvert is the Co-Director of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol. He responded to our inquires about the status of the campaign.

Question: How many signatures did it take to get Amendment 64 on the ballot?

Mason Tvert: We ultimately collected about 175,000 signatures to qualify the initiative for the November ballot.

Question: What do you expect to happen during the lead up to the November Election?

Mason Tvert: The campaign is primarily focused on educating voters about the initiative and, more importantly, about marijuana. Our goal is to ensure that as many voters as possible are aware of the fact that marijuana is objectively far less harmful than alcohol, and that regulating marijuana like alcohol would be a far more effective way for Colorado to handle marijuana.

Question: What is your public relations strategy for victory?

Mason Tvert: We are using a variety of tactics, ranging from provocative billboards and paid television ads to online social networking and grassroots canvassing. Our focus is on promoting interpersonal communication, such as conversations and other forms of contact with family, friends, and neighbors. The focal point of this effort is TalkItUpColorado.org, our online action center and clearinghouse for those wanting to get involved.

Question: What do you expect will be your toughest challenges still yet to face?

Mason Tvert: We are up against 80 years of marijuana prohibition scare tactics and misinformation, and we will undoubtedly hear more of it from our opponents. We are going to be aggressive and take it head on, highlighting their support for a system that strips away all control over the sale and production of marijuana, and makes it easier for teens to access it. We will certainly ask why they believe adults should be criminals simply for using a substance less harmful than alcohol, and we will be sure to raise the prospect of generating significant new tax revenue and job growth by regulating marijuana in a similar manner as alcohol.


Question: How can people from outside of Colorado do to help to pass Amendment 64?

Mason Tvert: We are encouraging folks to contact anyone they know in Colorado to ensure they are aware of the initiative, and to ensure they are aware of the facts. We will also be setting up an online phone bank, through which supporters around the nation can contact Colorado voters to have conversations about this issue, provide them with the facts, and encourage them to vote yes on Amendment 64.

In Detroit, Tim Beck has masterminded a real victory.  After over a year of fighting to get the petition to Amend the Detroit City Code, to allow for all adults to be able to possession of up to an once, on the ballot. Per order of the Michigan Supreme Court, a writ of mandamus was issued on June 22nd by the Wayne County Circuit Court. Judge Michael Sapala, ordered the Detroit Election Commission to place the proposed amendment on the ballot. The question as to whether or not it should be a crime under Detroit City Code to "posses an ounce or less of marijuana on private property by anyone who has attained the age of 21 years." Matt Abel and Tim Knowlton aided in the legal efforts that made it possible. The measure will be on the November ballot. We caught up with Mr. Beck and he gave thoughts from the inside.

Question: How does it feel to finally beat all those who stood up to resist placing the Amendment to the Detroit City Code to except people over the age of 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana?

Tim Beck: "It feels wonderful to be vindicated at last. We were very confident of our legal position from day one that is why we were determined to fight this to the end. I guess the City was hoping to wear us out in court and bleed us so badly in legal fees, that we would just give up and they would win by default."

 Question: How many different local campaigns are going on in Michigan currently?

Tim Beck: "There are three other local campaigns now looking to attain ballot status. Flint, Jackson and Ypsilanti. All of them are similar in nature to Detroit, in that they focus one way or another on taking away police motivation to arrest peaceful adult cannabis users, possessing under and ounce of marijuana. These campaigns are now in the signature gathering stage. In addition, Kalamazoo voters will be voting on a charter amendment to authorize the creation of up to three medical cannabis facilities within the City limits."

Question:  How can people help with these local campaigns?
Tim Beck: “Detroit and Kalamazoo are already on the ballot for November. Help is needed in Flint, Ypsilanti and Jackson to complete the signature gathering process. If these measures make the ballot, polling numbers and local political conditions make victory virtually certain in all of these cities. The key is to get them on the ballot. That is the biggest challenge.”

Question:  Are there any lessons to learn from California's Proposition 19?

Tim Beck: The lesson to be learned from Prop. 19, which lost at the polls, is that, unless activists have a minimum 6-8% lead in the polls going into the election, you are highly likely to lose on Election Day. Once the attack ads start, support for your measure does not go up. It goes down. Unless you have a good lead going in, you are wasting your time. Support for Prop 19 was barely above 50% from day one and that was fatal for the measure in the end.

Question: How do you feel about the Colorado's Amendment 64?

Tim Beck:“Prop. 64 has a fighting chance to win. The poll numbers vary from 60-54% in favor of the measure. That is why the effort has gotten serious financing from wealthy individuals and institutions. The Prop 64 campaign team, led by Mason Tvert, have considerable past experience under their belt running ballot initiatives. They are seasoned, sophisticated players and are veterans of at least a half dozen initiative campaigns over the years. The wording of the measure was also carefully crafted to make the proposal as palatable to the public as possible--- anticipating all likely political attacks which will come its way.”

Inside Thoughts July by Adam Brook

This month there a few things I want to cover in this column. BAD NEWSPAPER HEADLINES, SMOKERS BEHAVIOR IN PUBLIC, and DO PRO-POT PEOPLE WANT POT LEGALIZED?
I decided a few months ago to start getting the Lansing State Journal, as it covers the goings on of the Legislature better than the Jackson paper. While the LSJ is nowhere near the quality of say a Detroit Free Press or News, they regularly re-run stories from both of those papers. Every once in a while they have a local story that catches my eye. Their coverage of the current “K2”epidemic has enraged me to the point of a letter to the editor. They ran a story with the headline “City urges action against SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA”. Now I have been watching the BATH SALTS K2 products since they hit the market years ago. PERSONALLY I am all for better living through chemistry, If we know the chemist. Of course one has to assume that any chemist who is looking for retail sales is going to produce a clean and safe (if used properly) product. Now of course there are unscrupulous people who would take advantage of the naiveté of people looking to  catch a buzz, but if you are looking for mass distribution your product will be safe (again if used properly). What upsets me is the attempt to connect this to MARIJUANA. Every article I have read says the side effects can include rapid heart rate, vomiting, agitation, seizures, paranoia, loss of physical control, and hallucinations. Now I have smoked copious amounts of marijuana both here and in Amsterdam, and while paranoia and rapid heart rate might be the only thing in common, I am sure you can suffer from both of those by watching the latest R rated horror flick. To me this is more REEFER MADNESS. Now instead of claiming that smoking marijuana will cause “black men to rape white woman” they claim that smoking an herb sprayed with a chemical is akin to smoking pot. The editors of these newspapers have to hear from US that these products are nothing like marijuana. It has to come from those of us who know what we speak of as we are users of marijuana. If they were trying to ban alcohol I would bet an ounce of weed, that politicians would be getting up, one after another, and admitting that THEY use alcohol ( responsibly ) end all the evil being spread was untrue. Of course we all know that alcohol is such a moneymaker they will never try to ban it again, no matter how many lives it ruins.
I also want to comment on some behaviors that I have noticed seem to be used against us in the court of public opinion. Twice on national TV news and even on a Mi internet talk list (that my wife prints out and sends me) smoking in public places has been mentioned as an issue. While talking about possession a civil infraction, in New York City, punishable by a $100 ticket, a preacher from Los Angeles says that with the change in CA marijuana law, everywhere you go you smell burning weed. He said it’s openly smoked in parks, on the street and even restaurants. Now I don’t really believe what he says but I am sure there are people who heard him who do. A reporter from NYC said that currently people openly smoke in the parks and clubs. Now I have been there and while I know it happens in some clubs, you have to look hard to find someone in a park smoking as you are likely to get arrested if a cop sees you. Now I do think if they made it a civil infraction, like Ann Arbor, there are many of us who would risk a ticket (even a $100 one) but would never risk arrest. Even in Amsterdam, smoking in public is frowned upon. Only the tourists do it.
I think some people get spoiled by events like Ann Arbors HASH BASH. Which in MY opinion has been and always will be a SMOKE-IN.? Yes, many of us will get together and puff on the Diag and then out in front of Dominick’s, but we know we are breaking the law. We do it in protest. When we rent out a building for an event, even if that event is open to the public, we are on private property.  There we get to make the rules (with permission of the property owner). Now hotels are a little different. When you rent a room you generally can do anything within the law inside. However if a hotel gets a complaint about people smoking pot in a room they generally will respond. For that reason, for many years now, I travel with an ozone generator. I have never had a problem. The fact that we may have a medical card may NOT keep you from getting kicked out.
Do POT PEOPLE want to legalize pot? That is an interesting question. We know that there are over 130,000 medical marijuana card holders.
We also know that to get a question on the ballot it takes just over 420,000 good signatures. To me it’s simple math. Each card holder gets 4 signatures. Now we know that many medical patients are not able to go out and get signatures, which means that the rest of us would have to pick up the slack. Unfortunately the one thing I do know, which has nothing to do with marijuana, is that volunteer ballot proposals DON’T GET ON THE BALLOT! If my memory serves me right, the Headly Amendment was the last one to do it.
As a parting shot I would like to suggest that you all read David Maraniss’ newest book “Barack Obama: The Story”. I have read a few sections that my wife sent me that were available online. All about Barack Obama being a pothead while growing up in Hawaii. Imagine that, a president who smoked pot. OK, so maybe it’s about more than him being a pothead, but that got me interested in reading it…
Peace and smoke one for me

Free The Weed 16 by John Sinclair


FREE THE WEED 16


A Column by John Sinclair


Highest greetings from London, where I’m resting up from my little tour of Ireland, Scotland and the UK with Mr. Nice called Breathin’ Air with Howard
Marks & John Sinclair and smoking some tasty locally-grown medicine while I’m here. I intend to be back in Amsterdam by the time you read these words and cashing in my new Dutch prescription for 10 days worth of cannabis at a gram a day, as well as enjoying recreational marijuana over the counter at the 420 Cafe.

I’ll pick up my eye-witness coverage of the attempted adulteration of the Dutch coffeeshop culture in my next column, but this week the good news is all coming from the States, where a new Angus Reid Public opinion poll reveals that fully two-thirds of American adults believe that the drug war is failing and a majority says that marijuana ought to be legalized.

According to the poll, only 10 percent of respondents believe that the so-called “War on Drugs” has been successful, while 66 percent deem it a "failure." Pollsters also found that 52 percent of Americans support the legalization of marijuana, versus 44 percent opposed. This is the fourth consecutive survey conducted by Angus Reid to report majority support among Americans for legalizing marijuana.

I’m not clinging to a lot of hope for the success of the 2012 Michigan Marijuana Initiative because of the severe underfunding of the effort, but there’s very encouraging news from several other fronts in the U.S.A.

In Colorado a recent Rasmussen Reports poll of likely state voters found that 61 percent favor legalizing and regulating marijuana like alcohol, while only 27 percent opposed the concept. This bodes well for the chances of the passage in November of Amendment 64, the ballot initiative aimed at eliminating civil and criminal penalties for the limited possession and cultivation of cannabis and regulating the commercial production and distribution of marijuana by licensed retailers.

Widespread support for Amendment 64 includes NORML, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Colorado, SAFER, Sensible Colorado, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), the Drug Policy Alliance, and the Marijuana Policy Project.

And finally moving from the voters’ initiative route to legislative action on
medical marijuana, on June 1st Connecticut became the 17th state since 1996 to legalize the limited use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes, and New Hampshire lawmakers have sent Senate Bill 409, which allows for the personal possession, cultivation, and use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes, to Governor John Lynch for his signature.

Governor Lynch, a Democrat, has opposed SB 409—passed by more than two-thirds of House members—and previously vetoed similar legislation in 2009. The 13 to 9  Senate vote in favor is two votes shy of the necessary two-thirds majority necessary to override the governor’s expected veto this time.

Republican Senator Jim Forsythe, the bill's prime sponsor, said that he would continue lobbying to gain the two additional votes to insure an override of the anticipated veto. "Most senators now agree we have a moral obligation to protect seriously ill patients from being arrested in our state," he said. Amen to that!

The news from the federal front, however, is not at all encouraging, as Tara Culp-Ressler from Think Progress summarizes: Justice Department Targets Medical Marijuana Despite Increasing Support For Legalization. Despite the fact that medical marijuana may be legal in up to 24 states and the District of Columbia by the end of this year, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continues to crack down on medical marijuana on the federal level.

Federal prosecutors have been pressuring the landlords of medical marijuana shops in California to either shut down their shops or risk losing their property under a civil statute originally designed to allow the government to seize drug-trafficking organizations’ assets.

The Obama administration has continued to restrict medical marijuana despite the fact that 3/4 of the American public believes the federal government should back off enforcement against medical marijuana in states where the drug is legalized.

What is with our president? Last month a new biography drew a vivid portrait of young Barry Obama as a wigged-out college pothead sometimes known as The Interceptor for his practice of jumping his place in the toking order and seizing the joint in progress prior to appointed turn.

As a candidate for president in 2008 Obama promised to leave state-approved medical marijuana alone, but since taking office his so-called Department of Justice has continued and extended the insane anti-marijuana policies of the Bush administration.

For example, as Angela Lee reports in AlterNet, the number of drug offenders in prison and jail, or on probation and parole, continues to skyrocket. During 2009, the first year of the present administration, almost 337,500 people were incarcerated for drugs in the United States, nearly twice as many as the 179,070 being held in 1990—only 20 years
earlier.

Even more alarming is the number of drug offenders in federal prisons, which has exploded from 30,470 in 1990 to almost 100,000 in 2009. (In 1980, there were only 4,900 prisoners housed in federal facilities for "drug" offenses, less than 5% of the present number.) The conviction of "drugs" means that possession or sales of an illegal drug was the person's most serious offense, even if he or she were convicted of multiple offenses.

Ms. Lee points out that this analysis omits counts for "drug" offenders in local jails, even though these facilities housed an estimated 767,434 inmates in 2009.

Anthony Gregory, a research assistant at The Independent Institute, wrote an impassioned plea in the Huffington Post for an end to this madness, arguing that “The entire drug war is a monstrosity, a crime against the Bill of Rights, the greatest contributor to gang violence, a wholesale attack on our civil liberties and the right of individuals to control their own bodies.

“Characterizing drug problems as a criminal justice issue has been an unmitigated failure, except for serving law-enforcement special interests, growing the bureaucracy, and deepening the pockets of drug kingpins who profit off this madness…. No result of legal cannabis could be as bad as what we have now.

“Since October 2009, the Obama administration has executed over 170 SWAT raids of dispensaries. But right now, 3/4 of Americans—including 2/3 of Republicans—want these federal raids against state-legalized medical marijuana dispensaries to end.

“If ever there was an issue where a president was out of touch with the American people, especially with those in his own party, the war on marijuana is it.

“The war on pot is hypocritical and immoral. It needs to end. Unfortunately, the prison and police lobbies want to keep this calamitous crusade going, because the war on pot is a lynchpin for the rest of the drug war. The DEA and Drug Czar require marijuana to be included in their data on illicit substances, which they use to make the drug problem appear as big as possible.”

Gregory concludes with a serious challenge to all of us: “If the American people want to end the misery of the war on pot, it will take more than a casual opposition to the laws. We must rally against the entire prohibitionist mindset and the cult of absolute power.”

Rhode to Decriminalization by J.C. Trout

Rhode to Decriminalization
On June 13, 2012 Rhode Island (R.I.) joined fifteen other states when its Governor Lincoln Chaffee signed the state’s new bill decriminalizing marijuana. The cool thing about Rhode Island, just like New York City, is that it’s taking the decrim seriously.  Before the twin house bills (S2253/H7092) passed, R.I. imposed a $500 fine and a year in the hoosegow just for having a couple of doobs.  After April 13, 2013, R.I. cops won’t even arrest you for an “o” or less.  They will take your stash and give you $150 “civil” ticket.  That’s it. The ticket doesn’t even leave a mark on your criminal record. If for some reason you are caught three times in a year and a half, you may have to pay a $500 fine or spend a month in the clink.  Of course, if you are caught that many times in just over a year – you’re either into some other activities that are buzzin’ the fuzz, or you ride the short bus to school. 
However, if you are under 18, the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal will probably crush your driving privileges, make you go to a Drug Awareness class, and have you picking up trash along the freeway for a couple of weeks.  While this might seem mega-lame, it’s a lot better than our own teens get in Michigan.  Many of our teens find themselves incarcerated, placed on probation, or marked in the system for just a roach or two.
A version of these bills had been introduced by sponsor Rep. John Edwards of Tiverton on numerous occasions with a slow persuasion of support over many years. Finally this year, with the help of his co-sponsor Senator Joshua Miller, Edwards managed to win the support of the House (50-24) and the Senate (28-6).  Many believe these legislative results are reflective of the shifting attitudes among Americans about marijuana use.  Ultimately it may come down to pragmatic legal sense.  One of the first rules of making a new law is to never create a law you are unwilling or unable to enforce.  In this case, so many Americans use marijuana as their drug of choice, it is truly impossible to stop them.  So, having cops focus on their energy on an ocean of non-violent crime is a waste of tax-payer time and money. In fact according to Harvard economist Jeffery Myron, R.I. should save around $11 million a year when the bills go into effect.
“I’m very happy the governor has decided to support this legislation… I am hopeful that this will allow our law enforcement officials to do what they do best – solve real crimes.”- Representative and Sponsor John Edwards
Of course there are nay-sayers to controversial issues such as this, but their message doesn’t offer any new thoughts or solutions; just the same ol’ same ol’ about the “kind of message…we [are] sending to our youth.”  However, this short-sighted opinion falls flat when pressed with the fact that this new law, for the first time ever, sets aside monies collected from these fines to fund the teen drug awareness programs – thus allowing the civil infraction to pay for itself- efficient and logically consequential.  Indeed, these particular bills have been cited as possible models for designing a national marijuana decriminalization bill.  .
“This legislation maintains the spirit of the policy with adjustments that factored in concerns from the judiciary, law enforcement officials and the community… half of the revenue we make with these fines goes toward education and treatment programs for youth. The community much prefers to have our young people in those types of programs as opposed to incarceration, and it’s important that we preserve their access to education and employment.” – Senator and Co-Sponsor Joshua Miller

Cannabis Camp by Ben Horner

By Ben Horner
Houghton Lake

            As I drove over the Zilwaukee Bridge I felt mixed emotions about the weekend ahead of me. It happened to be father’s day weekend, so the thought of how much I was going to miss my children made me sad and a little lonely.  Luckily I had Max, my trusty four-legged friend to keep me company. The route up M55 is lush with rolling green landscapes picketed with rows of pine, maple and oak trees.  I rode the whole way there with the windows rolled down, enjoying the fresh air, clear skies, and warm weather that demands that you wear shorts, tank tops and a smiling face.
            I arrived at the White Pines Canoe Camp Ground, which is located just west of Houghton Lake. (My Good friend Hoss gave me the simple directions: follow M55 past Houghton Lake west of 127, then take Jeff road south and follow the canoe camp signs. You can’t miss it!)  Uncle Pete, master of ceremonies at Cannabis Camp, greeted me as I entered camp with a joint, which was well needed after the long trip. I broke out one to match and quickly the core group gathered to partake. I was in heaven. Great tunes jammed out of a sound system at the center of camp. Everyone was so friendly; they even set my tent up for me.  Some of the local teenagers ran up to the store for me and brought back split firewood and showed me where to get the water. There is this mystical natural spring well, that one must use at camp. This artisan well has been flowing for over 65 years and tastes better then any water I have ever tasted. The welcome was absolutely refreshing.
            That night two boys, Les Older and Dan Patch pulled out the guitars and jammed for hours. By the end of the evening I was spent. I didn’t wake till after nine, and after breakfast we took canoes down the Muskegon River. The ride down the river lasted 4hours, and my back was sore by the time I was done. Just some advice if you get partnered with Kevin, don’t let him steer the boat, because if you do he will haze you.  The winding river was beautiful and relaxing, regardless.  When I got back the band was starting. Uncle Pete kept everyone entertained as he zipped through camp on his green mini bike. When he was done riding he began to sing with the band, encouraging all to join him in dance and other displays of merriment. I made chicken enchiladas in my Dutch oven with culinary friends Marlin and Max. Everyone ate well and enjoyed the music. Les Older played one of his original songs called, As the River Follows, which was quite fitting for the occasion. I fell asleep after enjoying an infused chocolate milkshake, loads of hash and more joints then one could possibly require.
            Waking up on Sunday, I was still numb from the night prior. Folks were arriving that I had not seen yet, many of whom brought large bags of trim that they emptied collectively into an oversized glass jar.  Uncle Pete made sure all of his caregivers put up their donation.  Soon the container was full with buds and frosty sugar leaves. As the group worked together to prepare the Simpson Oil, I was introduced to Amy, a cancer patient that the oil was being made for. Simpson Oil is recognized as the most effective way to use cannabis to combat tumor/abnormal cell growth, nerve damage and a host of other medical conditions.  As the medicine cooked down, folks gathered around Amy and watched Pete and Joe work. I couldn’t help thinking that this is the spirit of compassion that we often speak of, but many fall short of. I don’t want to sound corny, but I really didn’t want to go home!
            If you are interested in going to cannabis camp or want more info just call Uncle Pete himself, you can contact him at 989-359-1792.
