Maine is considered a key state to pass a marijuana legalization initiative and two groups are seeking to put an initiative on the November 2016 ballot. One is the Washington DC based Marijuana Policy Project which has funded successful legalization initiatives in Colorado and Oregon. The other is Legalize Maine, a local group which has a different approach to legalization and is working to put their initiative on the ballot. Why Maine is such a hot bed for marijuana legalization and how the two initiatives differ will be discussed by our first guest Campaign Coordinator for Legalize Maine Peter McCarrier.

Marijuana legalization measures have been a mixed bag of good and bad for medical marijuana patients. With California most likely to have a legalization initiative on the ballot in 2016, legalization proponents want to work with medical marijuana patients to ensure that their rights are protected under any marijuana legalization initiatives that are on the ballot.
Dale Sky Jones is Director of the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform, a California based nonpartisan organization dedicated to ending marijuana prohibition through ballot initiatives, legislative collaboration and public education campaigns. As the shows first guest, Ms. Jones will provide information on the series of roundtable discussions being held in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Ana on Jan. 30 and 31. Information on prospects for the 2016 initiatives and how patients can work together to make sure they do not have a negative impact is at the center of these community forums.
Students for Sensible Drug Policy at the University of California at Irvine are sponsoring a symposium on Saturday, Feb. 21 that will bring together experts from the legal, political, and judicial arenas, as well as civil rights activists, harm reduction workers, entrepreneurs, and full-time reform workers for an in-depth look at how U.S. drug policies have affected society, and what lies ahead on the horizon.
The show’s second guest is Lauren Ayn Mendelsohn, coordinator for SSDP at UCI who is also a J.D. Candidate, 2016. She will explain the ins and outs of this important symposium and reveal the names of the invited speakers and participants. Marijuana law reform is a key component of the reform process and Ms. Mendelsohn will provide information on how this is incorporated into the symposium’s presentations.
It's has come to the publics attention that Floyd Mayweather has refused to agree to a $5 million penalty if either fighter were to fail a drug test either before or after the May 2nd fight. Manny Pacquaio is the one who requested for this fine to be included in the contract. The problem is that the contract has already been signed by both parties. However, there is a separate agreement that the United States Anti-Doping Agency will be overseeing random blood and urine testing for both fighters, terms for a substantial fine in the event of a dirty test are still being discussed. If neither fighter have anything to hide, thena agreement shouldn't be hard to come by. Even with that said, it should've been included in the original contract to avoid any outside negotiations.
Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) is seeking volunteers. Tonight we welcome Zora Ray, who is AIMI's Advocacy Coodinator for Drug/Alcohol Dependencies, Zora Ray, at 9pmEST. Please call to speak on air at (818) 572-2947. Everyone is invited! Zora is a retired psychiatric nurse who successfully battled drug addiction and depression herself, and she looks forward to helping other people. Email Zora at the address below:
As a AIMI advocate, Zora will try to find treatment centers and other services for persons who suffer from drug/alcohol dependencies. AIMI believes that persons with drug/alcohol addictions need TREATMENT, NOT PUNISHMENT. Therefore, Zora will attempt to have drug/alcohol-dependent defendants tried in drug courts rather than regular criminal courts, and she will attempt to influence decision makers to sentence addicts to treatment rather than to jails and prisons.
If you would like to work with AIMI as a volunteer, please contact MaryLovesJustice at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call AIMI's director at (678)531.0262 or (571)335-1741.

Could drug-resistant tuberculosis be the next great pandemic? Most people think of tuberculosis as being a long-gone disease, a throwback to the Colonial or Medieval Eras. Also known as “consumption”, tuberculosis is thought of as something modern medicine has eliminated. Not only is this factually incorrect, tuberculosis has joined the ranks of drug-resistant bacterial infections.
When antibiotics no longer kill a particular bacterial infection, the entire population is at risk of that infection in a much larger way than a handful of people who refuse vaccinations. Without effective antibiotics, there is no treatment.

The DSM-5, which is the Diagnostic of Statistical Manual that Health Professionals use to diagnose patients with mental disorders, including addictions, and let me mention all of man kinds addictions fall into this category, from coffee, to tobacco, to alcohol and any kind of drug named that can prove a psychoactive result within that substance. If it changes the way you feel, it names it. It explains the activation of the brains rewards system and how it is the central point of creating problematic situations in an individuals life, that the feeling created by such use from alcohol or drugs, feelings of pleasue and euphoria, which is so profound to them that an individual will bypass normal activity just to partake in once again creating this feeling. Now DSM-5 has two groups, which one, are substance use disorders, which creates patterns of smyptoms that result from using which the individual takes despite of the problems they may experience.The other is substance induced disorders which is important to be aware of because alcoholism/drug addiction is closely related to several mental illnesses. They mention induced bipolar, anxiety, depressive, sleep, delirium, which is alcoholism, sexual dysfunctions, and neurocognitive disorders. I mention this because so many doctors will diagnose an alcoholic/addict with a particular mental illness, like slapping a label on them. Then they drug them, then clean and sober and working a program after a year, their symptoms have disappeared. Alcoholic/addicts were housed in mental institutions up into the 80's until they closed them down, now they are housed in jails with violent offenders. We have the largest, over populated jail system in the world and the majority of them are there due to alcohol and drug offenses.
