7 people arrested in pro-pot demonstration near Capitol

7 people arrested in pro-pot demonstration near Capitol

The code 420 is most often used in North America, attributed to a group of young pot-lovers in the 1970s who met up at 4:20 pm. Why Centre Square? It's visible, and the traffic circle provided a natural merry-go-round of motorists honking and waving to voice their support.

Members of Aiken NORML and local residents gathered Thursday on Newberry Street in downtown Aiken for a 4/20 marijuana legalization rally.

But Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a longtime foe of marijuana, is reviewing the nation's weed laws.

More than half the states allow medical marijuana.

Participants waved marijuana-themed flags and held signs.

To rectify federal and state laws, the Obama administration in 2013 announced plans not to enforce anti-marijuana federal laws in states that legalized the drug.

The eclectic gypsy stylings of This Way to the Egress provided a soundtrack before they had to leave for the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks in Bethlehem.

"It's good for me for stress purposes", said Wallace, 37. "You can give up to an ounce each".

Carey Frick, of Forks Township, rallied Thursday with her son, Balen, who is nearly 11 and is on the autism spectrum.

Fox to investigate sexual harassment claim against O'Reilly
O'Reilly has denied all allegations, and the network has stood by him, even after a New York Times report on the settlements last week started an advertising exodus from his show.

Rick Nicolazzi, a Lehigh Valley NORML board member from Easton, uses marijuana to treat chronic pain, but he has to get it illegally.

The problem with everything anyone in the administration has said about marijuana to date is that each statement has been rooted in the same propaganda drug warriors have pushed since the release of Reefer Madness. The bill would legalize the regulated use, possession, sale and cultivation of cannabis statewide, and establish a market in which it could be sold. Last November, residents of MA and ME were the first east of the Mississippi River to vote to follow the lead of Colorado, Washington State, Oregon, Alaska and the District of Columbia in legalizing recreational use.

As marijuana supporters celebrate the drug on the grassroots holiday 4/20, the medicinal use of the drug is still on hold in SC.

Pot state governors to Sessions: Back off! Daylin Leach, D-Delaware/Montgomery. It's unlikely to come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Legislature, Leach aide Steve Hoenstine said.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, DCMJ Communications Director Nikolas R. Schiller said the location of the giveaway was chosen not just to raise awareness of their legislative agenda, but to highlight the apparent contradiction between what types of substances congressional staffers can and can't consume. "So many senators have told us in private that they support legalization". "Giving adults access to cannabis and individuals and small business owners legal protection in all 50 states is what the American people have been asking for - just take one look at last year's election".

"This legislation, I believe, reflects the will of Pennsylvanians who are considering decriminalization on the local level", the sponsor, Rep. Ed Gainey, D-Allegheny, wrote in a memo to lawmakers.

Even though cannabis for medical use is now legal in NY, it still isn't easy to get a prescription.

But in recent years, a consensus has emerged around the most credible explanation: It started with a group of bell-bottomed buddies from San Rafael High School in California, who called themselves "the Waldos".
