Former GOP Leader Boehner Thinks Legal Marijuana Is the Answer for Millions

Former GOP Leader Boehner Thinks Legal Marijuana Is the Answer for Millions

The state Cannabis Control Commission has finalized regulations for recreational-marijuana sales in MA, and the Select Board is planning to seek local opinion on the subject ahead of possibly enacting additional controls on the budding industry.

Nixon, who in March announced her run against incumbent governor Andrew Cuomo in the upcoming Democratic primary, notes in the video that 80 percent of New Yorkers arrested for marijuana are black or Latino. "I believe it's time for NY to follow the lead of eight other states and D.C. and legalize the recreational use of marijuana", Nixon said in the video.

Nixon said if there was more "political courage" in Albany, the drug already would be legal.

"Nothing in the amendment authorizes the Department of Health (or any other part of Florida's government) to ignore the rights of qualifying patients to access the medical marijuana treatment to which they are entitled under the Florida Constitution, or to exclude any method by which qualifying patients may take their medicine", Gievers wrote in Wednesday's 22-page order.

She closed provocatively: "The simple truth is, for white people, the use of marijuana has effectively been legal, for a long time. Isn't it time we legalize it for everybody else?" Although Nixon has been portrayed as a pawn of New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio in his notorious rivalry with Cuomo, she has actually slammed the both of them for passing the buck back and forth over funding low-income housing and mass transit. Weld was the Governor for MA from 1991 to 1997, a state which has since chose to legalize the plant for recreational as well as medical purposes.
