SORT BY Relevancy
With possession of less than two ounces carrying a prison term of up to six months and a fine up to $2,000 Texas is one of the most repressive and scary states for marijuana consumers. From marching on the State Capitol in Austin to activist training/public education to submitting bills reforming the state’s draconian laws, Texas NORML is changing the picture. Texas NORML Veteran’s Affairs director Dave Bass will review the dismal legal situation in Texas, reveal where progress is being made and explain the programs Texas NORML has developed to drag their state into the 21st Century.
Missouri ain’t much better than Texas with possession of less than an ounce imposing fines and prison sentences up to $1,000 and a year in jail with convictions for sales of less than five grams imposing a prison sentence of up to a 7 years. Mark Pederson with the Cannabis Patient Network is working with a group of Missourians to bring before the voters the Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act which defines marijuana as food!!! As the show’s second guest, Mr. Pederson will explain this unique approach to legalizing marijuana and their program to get it on the ballot.
his morning i was reading and came across that Nebraska is suing Colorado over marijuana.
In a statement and subsequent news conference Thursday, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said Colorado's marijuana legalization has adversely affected his state. Colorado pot is turning up in Nebraska, he said, resulting in an increase in marijuana-related arrests on his state's western border.
"Nebraska taxpayers have to bear the cost," Bruning said, in comments reported by the Omaha World-Herald. "We can't afford to divert resources to deal with Colorado's problem."
"Federal law undisputedly prohibits the production and sale of marijuana," Bruning added in a statement. "Colorado has undermined the United States Constitution, and I hope the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold our constitutional principles."
im going on record i hate Nebraska!! when i was there 3 years ago on the mhh tour i got arrested twice for marijuana. your attorney general is a assclown who is ignorant and has no interest in facts. spending your tax dollars arresting people smoking marijuana is just plain stupid and unnecessary.
i live in california and i get my weed delivered to my door legally everyday and have lost focus that in Nebraska people are in fear of going to jail over a harmless plant and the cancer patients face prison terms for treating there illness
i have decided to move to Nebraska and head up there dysfunctional normal offices and i will get marijuana legalization on the ballot for 2016 and also put john brunning out of office
Nebraska we are coming to help because this lawsuit is the last straw Colorado will not be bullied by some ignorant farmer who's only excuse for marijuana being illegal is that he is old school

Tonight- Michigan's 2014 lame duck legislative session ended last week with two bills passing in the senate that pave the way for industrial hemp research in the state. The industrial hemp bills are now awaiting action from the Governor. The 2014 legislative session also ended without two patient friendly medical marijuana bills being brought up for a vote on the senate floor.
Joining us tonight to discuss what happened in the 2014 lame duck session and what is being considered for 2015 will be-
MINorml Board member Steve Sharpe who worked with Everett and Nakita Swift and others to help move the industrial hemp legislation through the House and Senate
Jim Powers from Michigan Parents for Compassion, father of a pediatric medical marijuana patient and instrumental in getting a bill introduced to clarify the law in regard to non-smokable forms of cannabis
Robin Schneider- legislative liaison for the National Patients Rights Association, who along with top independent lobbyist Kevin McKinney, led the lobbying effort for the patient friendly bills
Michael's rant, news, current events and more!
As discussed in a feature article in SOMA depending who you speak with, she may be the front woman in a heavy rock band, a writer for several magazines and blogs or organizer of political rallies. Yet, one thing Eleanor Goldfield is not is apathetic. Having witnessed the social juxtapositions of growing up in both Sweden & North Carolina and inspired by her socially conscious parents to stand up for what you believe, Goldfield has an insatiable drive to use her voice to challenge political corruption and social inequalities. In 2010, with friend and fellow musician Brian Marshak, Goldfield formed the band Rooftop Revolutionaries as a way to express social and political messages against the sound of hard, driving rock music. "Art has the unique ability to connect with people on the deepest of levels without feeling like an intrusion. People open themselves up to this art, music, photography, and then – they think. React. Do Something." Please join us tonight.
