Illegal drugs including cocaine, heroin and cannabis should be reclassified to reflect a scientific assessment of harm, according to a report by the Global Commission on Drug Policy.

The commission, which includes 14 former heads of states from countries such as Colombia, Mexico, Portugal and New Zealand, said the international classification system underpinning drug control is “biased and inconsistent”.

 

No shit...

https://hightimes.com/news/hawaii-officially-decriminalizes-small-quantities-cannabis/

 

The State of Hawaii decriminalized possession of small amounts of cannabis on Tuesday after an attempt by lawmakers to legalize the recreational use of marijuana failed earlier this year.

Under the measure, House Bill 1383, possession of up to three grams of cannabis will no longer be subject to punishment with time in jail but would instead carry a fine of up to $130. Currently, possession of any amount of cannabis in Hawaii is punishable with up to 30 days behind bars and a fine of up to $1,000. The new law is scheduled to go into effect on January 11, 2020.

Stupid motherfucker is trying to keep his arse in politics by pandering to the religious conservatives.... This is obvious in his recent "antics". 

 

We are at war... Except they've got more troops on the field. They've infiltrated politics... Now they can influence legislation.

 

Call me paranoid all ya like :wink:

In my estimation:

 

Barnaby < $

 

Therefore he is irrelevant over the next 5 years, particularly because he just switched up. Anti cannabis = political suicide going forward imo. Wouldn't rule out a switch back though...

Because the folks who put him there, want him there. They'll keep him as long as he's useful to them, then he'll fall by the wayside in the gold plated world of the Sunny Dreams Retirement Village for Politicians... you know, that one where they're paid to reside rather than having to pay. (I may be wrong about that last bit, seeing as they mostly seem to need to take high paying jobs at one multi-national corporation or another.... no wait... sorry, it appears they can have both).

 

Meanwhile, here's another positive bit of news about the plant of many miracles:

https://www.msn.com/en-au/money/company-news/how-rich-lister-barry-lambert-became-a-cannabis-mogul-in-a-bid-to-save-his-granddaughter/ar-AAGeixG?li=AAgfOd8&amp;ocid=mailsignout

 

Whilst I consider the title to be somewhat a juxtaposition, seeing "rich-lister" and "mogul" in the same sentence as "Cannabis", the article still adds momentum to this train. 

 

I just can't help imagining the journo's first "ASX listing" as a scene from "The Hunger Games".

 

In no way do I wish to denigrate his motivation, his grand-daughter's condition, nor his family's suffering; these things don't just happen to the under-privileged. Perhaps Mr. Lambert will find enough gratitude in the power of his bank account to add support to the many folk who have pushed this agenda, not because they were personally suffering, but because someone else was. And not because they stand to make a shit-load of coloured paper out of it.

 

Then again, perhaps I'm being too critical. Hell, the more I learn about our society and culture through psychology, sociology, anthropology, politics, global economics and media, and indeed my own experiences in the medical world, the greater the difficulty of not judging from my own pedestal.

 

I did find it interesting that Mr. Lambert's son blames himself for his daughter's Dravet Syndrome because of his alcohol use...

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-12/police-roadside-cannabis-drug-testing-devices-questioned/11502436

 

Key points:

  • The study found tests commonly used by police often failed to detect THC
  • They also delivered false positives up to 10 per cent of the time
  • But another researcher said the tests were still an effective way of reducing drug-driving

:rolleyes: No more aniseed Fisherman's Friends and apple cider vinegar then?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/tomangell/2019/09/19/beto-orourke-proposes-drug-war-reparations-funded-by-marijuana-taxes/#78bc05c91420

 

"Unlike other contenders who have come around to supporting marijuana legalization in just the past couple of years, the former Texas congressman has long called for ending prohibition—and his new plan in many respects goes further than those rolled out by other campaigns.

While rival candidates have proposed funding programs to begin repairing the harms of the war on drugs through job training, legal aid, expungement efforts and loans for small marijuana businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, O'Rourke's plan is the first to suggest direct payments to individuals who have been imprisoned on cannabis charges."

https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/6397162/labor-backbencher-very-confident-cannabis-bill-will-pass/

 

The existing bill included no household limit.

Individuals would be allowed to possess a maximum of two cannabis plants, rather than four, under the proposed amendments.

Cannabis must be kept out of reach of children, while growing the plants in community gardens would be banned, under other suggested changes.

On Friday, Mr Pettersson welcomed the amendments, which he described as "sensible".

 

This shit is happening... fukn finally.

Let's not get carried away folks.  Remember when ACT had same sex marriage laws revoked?  And I trust this government even less than that bunch of sanctimonious assholes.
