  11. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and U.S. Postal Service (USPS) have officially released a new “Drug Free USA Forever” stamp that’s supposed to help “raise awareness about the dangers of drug abuse.” In partnership with Miss America 2020, the federal agencies unveiled the stamps—because, evidently, they feel the postage symbol could help move the U.S. toward a totally “drug-free” status that has never been achieved in the history of civilization. Of course, the message is symbolic and targeted at preventing the use of currently illicit drugs. “With this powerful image and message, the U.S. Postal Service has given us another means to promote the battle against drug abuse,” DEA Acting Administrator Timothy Shea said in a press release on Tuesday. “In America alone, 70,000 lives are lost to drug overdoses every year, with countless others impacted by the actions of violent drug traffickers and the scourge of illegal drug use.” #DEA Acting Administrator Shea:“With this powerful image & message, @USPS has given us another means to promote the battle against drug abuse.We urge the public to use the Drug Free USA stamp to show their support for drug-free communities.” #DrugFreeStamp https://t.co/ApwCXJtCOb pic.twitter.com/YiPbq0MBcc — DEA HQ (@DEAHQ) October 27, 2020 “We urge the public to engage in this fight against illegal drug use and to use the Drug Free USA stamp to signify their support for safer, drug-free communities,” he said. Drug policy reform advocates don’t see the utility in using federal dollars to promote DEA’s arguably unrealistic message via the mail, however. “This is just another example of the DEA squandering government resources,” Maritza Perez, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance, told Marijuana Moment. “Rather than focus on ‘drug-free’ initiatives, our government should be focused on providing harm reduction services and treatment for people who use drugs.” “We are facing an overdose epidemic made increasingly deadly due to the pandemic, but the DEA is selling stamps. Unconscionable,” she said. “Further, with an election just days away, people are depending on the USPS to ensure their ballots are delivered, not to waste precious time and resources memorializing a failed drug war that has caused nothing but pain to the same people that could be most disenfranchised during the electoral process.” But Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said USPS hopes “that the Drug Free USA stamp will help publicize the dangers of illicit drug use and to promote drug abuse prevention.” “Millions of Americans have had their lives hijacked by the impact of addiction. Families are destroyed and communities are disrupted. We can measure the cost to society in the billions, but we cannot measure the grief and the despair. To fully address this problem requires a unified effort at every level of the community, and with this stamp, the Postal Service is proud to join the Drug Enforcement Administration and many other federal, state and local partners’ commitment to a Drug Free USA.” Camille Schrier, who holds the beauty pageant title of Miss America 2020, is also involved in the anti-drug postal promotion. She spoke about prescription opioid misuse promotion during a talk with the National Institute on Drug Abuse that was released last month. In the DEA announcement, Schrier said, “I have dedicated my year as Miss America 2020 to keeping patients safe with medications and fighting prescription drug misuse, so I am thrilled to see this issue nationally recognized through the drug-free stamp.” We are so excited! Thank you for having @CamilleSchrier join in on the fun! #DrugFreeStamp — The Miss America Org (@MissAmerica) October 26, 2020 “I admire the DEA’s commitment toward achieving a drug-free America, and am grateful to work beside them in educating the public on the dangers of drug misuse, living a substance-free life, as well as celebrating the creation of this historic stamp,” she said. DEA initially revealed the stamp design in November 2019 at the conclusion of Red Ribbon Week, an annual occurrence first launched under the Reagan administration. A description of the design states that the stamp “features a white star with lines of red, light blue and blue radiating from one side of each of the star’s five points, suggesting the unity necessary at all levels to effectively address drug abuse.” For those with mailing needs who aren’t interested in supporting the notion of a “Drug Free USA,” USPS does have another stamp that recognizes the 50-year anniversary of the drug-fueled 1969 counterculture music festival Woodstock. The stamp “features an image of a dove along with the words ‘3 DAYS OF PEACE AND MUSIC,’ evoking the original promotional poster for the festival,” USPS says. Another option is a John Lennon Forever stamp, celebrating the iconic Beatles member and marijuana enthusiast who famously got “high with a little help” from his friends. The stamps are intended to “celebrate one of history’s greatest rock-and-roll legends,” USPS said. For those who do want to send their mail with DEA’s new anti-drug stamp, however, they will be available for the next year. Meanwhile, DEA has been caught up in several court proceedings over its marijuana criminalization policy. Following a series of legal challenges, the Supreme Court announced earlier this month that it will not hear a case challenging the constitutionality of federal cannabis prohibition. The case was rejected in a series of rulings by lower courts, but attorneys for the plaintiffs said those decisions made it clear their only source of acceptable relief would come from the Supreme Court. Lawyers representing a group of scientists and military veterans filed a comprehensive brief in federal court earlier this month, outlining their case challenging decisions about the classification of marijuana made by the agency. A week later, a major military veterans group urged the court to take up that case. The plaintiffs initially filed that lawsuit against the federal agency in May, contending that DEA’s justification for maintaining a Schedule I status for cannabis is unconstitutional. DEA attempted to quash the case by filing a motion to dismiss, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit rejected that request in August. The plaintiffs also sued the agency last year in a separate case, alleging that it had deliberately delayed approving additional marijuana manufacturers for research purposes despite pledging to expand the number of those facilities in 2016. A court mandated that DEA take steps to make good on its promise, and that suit was dropped after DEA provided a status update. In March, DEA finally unveiled a revised rule change proposal that it said was necessary due to the high volume of applicants and to address potential complications related to international treaties to which the U.S. is a party. The same scientists behind the original case filed another suit against DEA, claiming that the agency used a “secret” document to justify its delay of approving manufacturer applications. That was born out when the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel document was released in April as part of a settlement in the case, revealing, among other things, that the agency feels that its current licensing structure for cannabis cultivation has been in violation of international treaties for decades. Separately, a federal court recently ruled that California regulators must comply with a DEA subpoena demanding information about marijuana businesses that they are investigating.

  13. A strong majority of Kansas residents support legalizing marijuana for adult use by a three-to-one margin, according to a new poll. While cannabis reform might not be on the state’s ballot next week as is the case in five other states, the survey shows that about two-thirds of Kansans (66.9 percent) are in favor of enacting the policy change, compared to 22.2 percent who are opposed and 10.9 percent who are undecided. That represents a nearly four percentage point increase in support since voters were polled on the question last year in the same annual Kanas Speaks Survey conducted by the Docking Institute of Public Affairs at Fort Hays State University. Opposition has also dropped about four points since 2019. Via Kansas Speaks. Kansas lawmakers introduced a bill to legalize medical marijuana during a short special session earlier this year, but it ultimately died in committee. There weren’t any specific conditions listed in the legislation that would have qualified patients for legal cannabis access. Rather, the bill stated that marijuana could be recommended for a temporary or permanent disability or illness that “limits the ability of the individual to conduct one or more major life activities” or “may cause serious harm to the individual’s safety or physical or mental health.” Certain legislators have indicated that they plan to pursue the reform again. For her part, Gov. Laura Kelly (D) backs medical cannabis legalization, stating earlier this year that she felt the legislature could enact the policy despite complications from the coronavirus pandemic. “I think that it probably would pass the legislature,” she said in April. But she added, “I think the issue of recreational marijuana is still not on the table.” While the governor said at the beginning of the year that she considers medical cannabis reform a priority, she would be inclined to sign an adult-use marijuana legalization bill if it arrived on her desk. “This is something where what the people want is probably more what I will want on something like that,” Kelly said. “I don’t have a personal ideology regarding it. If the folks want it and the legislature passes it, would I sign it? Probably.” And based on the last two Kansas Speaks surveys, what the people want is legalization. The latest poll—which involved interviews with 417 adults from September 21 to October 1—framed the question around the economics of taxing and regulating cannabis. “There are other ways to increase the state of Kansas’s revenue that would not include raising traditional taxes. Do you ‘Strongly Support’, ‘Somewhat Support’, ‘are Neutral’, ‘Somewhat Oppose’, or ‘Strongly Oppose’ the following alternative revenue sources,” it states, listing marijuana legalization as one of three options. It proved to be the most popular choice, too, ahead of increasing taxes on alcohol or tobacco products. Kansas is already surrounded by states that have legalized cannabis in some form, with the exception of Nebraska. An initiative to allow medical marijuana qualified for the state’s ballot earlier this year—but the state Supreme Court invalidated the measure following a legal challenge over its scope.

  15. A former federal prosecutor endorsed South Dakota ballot measures to legalize marijuana for medical and recreational use in a new campaign ad. Randy Seiler, who served as U.S. attorney for the District of South Dakota from 2015 to 2017, said the proposals are “well-written, smart reforms of our harsh marijuana laws.” “One mistake—possession of even a gram of marijuana—can ruin a life,” he said. “It could mean jail, a record, making it hard to get a job, an apartment or serve in the military. We can set that right by voting ‘yes’ on A and 26.” Seiler isn’t the only former federal prosecutor backing far-reaching cannabis reforms in South Dakota. His predecessor Brendan Johnson actually sponsored the adult-use legalization initiative. South Dakota is one of five states that will be voting on cannabis measures next month. But it’s the only state where both medical and recreational legalization will be on the ballot. South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws, the campaign behind the recreational initiative, also recently released a separate ad with a retired Sioux Falls police officer who said he was supporting the proposals because criminalization wastes taxpayer dollars and law enforcement resources. In that video, the former officer cited a report released by the legalization campaign last month that found that nearly one in 10 of all arrests in the state in 2018 were for cannabis offenses, with 95 percent of those cases concerning simple possession. A poll published over the weekend indicates that these pro-reform messages are resonating with South Dakotans. A survey of likely voters shows that 51 percent support the adult-use policy change, compared to 44 percent who are opposed and five percent who are undecided. For medical cannabis legalization, 74 percent said they support the reform while 23 percent oppose it and three percent remain undecided. A separate poll released last month by legalization opponents found that about 60 percent of South Dakota voters support the broader recreational legalization proposal and more than 70 percent back the narrower medical cannabis initiative. Gov. Kristi Noem (R), who previously vetoed a hemp bill, is among those minority of opponents. In a video ad released earlier this month, the governor urged constituents to reject the reform initiative, stating that it’s “not good for our kids” and won’t “improve our communities.” “The fact is, I’ve never met someone who got smarter from smoking pot,” she said. Under the adult-use constitutional amendment, people 21 and older could possess and distribute up to one ounce of marijuana, and they would also be allowed to cultivate up to three cannabis plants. The separate medical cannabis legalization measure that voters will decide on would make a statutory change to allow patients suffering from debilitating medical conditions to possess and purchase up to three ounces of marijuana from a licensed dispensary.

  16. If New Jersey voters approve a marijuana legalization referendum on their ballots next week, sales in the Garden State could get rolling at record speed. A plan by one top lawmaker would allow the state’s existing medical marijuana dispensaries to begin selling to adults over 21 within a month of the election. “I think one of the most important things is to allow people to buy legal cannabis immediately,” state Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Nick Scutari (D-Union) said in an interview with NJ.com on Tuesday. Those preferring to grow their cannabis at home, however, would be out of luck: “People will not be permitted to get marijuana from illegalized sources or homegrown or anything like that at this point,” Scutari said, adding that the issue “can probably be addressed in the future.” Scutari was discussing what to expect if New Jersey voters approve Public Question 1, which would legalize the cultivation, processing and sale of retail marijuana in the state. The legalization measure itself is a brief five sentences, leaving most details up to regulators and lawmakers. The first step, Scutari said, would be for lawmakers to pass so-called enabling legislation, which would begin to set the rules for the new marijuana market. He said he wants the legislation “done within the same month of November that we have the legalization pass.” “We might be able to flip the switch and people might be able to get marijuana, legally, right after the vote.” Logistically speaking, the plan might be easier said than done. For one thing, dispensaries would need to certify that they could still meet existing medical patient demand, and it’s not clear whether producers could scale up in time to meet that goal. “If it happened tomorrow, I don’t think we have an operator that would be ready to start selling adult use,” Jeff Brown, an assistant commissioner of the Department of Health who oversees New Jersey’s medical marijuana program, said in a separate interview with NJ.com’s NJ Cannabis Insider. “The industry as a whole would have to really put the pedal to the metal to start making that happen and start getting ready if they were to be deemed able to sell in a potential adult use marketplace.” Already the state’s dispensaries have faced complaints from patients of long lines and product shortages, made worse by the coronavirus pandemic. And patients in other states have frequently said that transitions to adult-use markets have made medical cannabis products more expensive and harder to access. New Jersey so far has issued licenses to only 12 companies to grow, process and sell medical marijuana to more than 90,000 registered patients. Brown said his department has encouraged operators to expand in recent years, but only some have done so. Another obstacle is simply getting Scutari’s legislation passed in a timely manner amid a new surge in coronavirus cases. A hearing to get a head start on planning legal cannabis implementation was scheduled for last week, but that was canceled when the senator went into quarantine after being exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. In many cases, legal marijuana sales regulations can take years to implement. New Jersey Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D) said in a radio interview last week that the state’s adult-use market might not open until well into 2021 if the referendum passes. Asm. @SpeakerCoughlin, at @1450WCTC radio segment, says that even if adult-use #marijuana legalization ballot question is approved, it could be well into 2021 before you could go into a store and legally purchase cannabis for recreational use — Daniel Munoz (@DanielMunoz100) October 23, 2020 Scutari, who previously introduced a legalization bill that failed to advance to a floor vote, remains optimistic about the work ahead. He said the forthcoming measure will resemble his past legislation, though he wants to add a section to end cannabis-related prosecutions for pending cases.“Right now we are working with co-sponsors and the governor’s office,” he said Tuesday. “We want to be able to get this thing passed quickly.” “We might be able to flip the switch and people might be able to get marijuana, legally, right after the vote,” he added. At a fundraiser earlier this month for the campaign working to pass the referendum, Scutari suggested that the enabling legislation could be passed as soon as the same week that voters sign off on legalization on their ballots. Polling, meanwhile, indicates strong support for the legalization referendum. A survey earlier this month found 65 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of measure, with 29 percent opposed and six percent undecided. The results were consistent with several earlier polls. Gov. Phil Murphy (D), too, has been actively campaigning for the referendum. Murphy said in a video ad promoting the referendum that the ongoing criminalization of cannabis in New Jersey wastes taxpayer dollars and has led to racial disparities in law enforcement. He said in July that legalizing cannabis is “an incredibly smart thing to do” both from an economic and social justice perspective. Murphy also recently called on voters to support the proposal in an email blast that was circulated by the New Jersey Democratic State Committee. The governor isn’t alone in his attempts to get out the vote for cannabis reform. Filmmaker Kevin Smith earlier this month urged Twitter followers to “VOTE YES when you see State Public Question Number 1: Constitutional Amendment to Legalize Marijuana.” NJ CAN 2020, one of two campaign committees working to pass the cannabis referendum, recently released a series of English- and Spanish-language video ads, after having published one prior ad. Meanwhile, campaign finance records indicate legal marijuana supporters are outraising opponents by a ratio of nearly 130 to 1. In June, the state Assembly passed a cannabis decriminalization bill that would make possession of up to two ounces a civil penalty without the threat of jail time, though it hasn’t advanced in the Senate.

It is the latest in a string of last-minute legal challenges to cannabis initiatives in several states. Idaho medical cannabis activists filed an initiative that they hope to get on the state’s 2022 ballot. They tried this year with virtually identical language but were impeded by the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing measures. This time they’ll have 18 months to petition. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a new interview that he will put marijuana legalization up for a floor vote if Democrats win control of the chamber in next week’s elections. “I’m a big fighter for racial justice, and the marijuana laws have been one of the biggest examples of racial injustice, and so to change them makes sense. And that fits in with all of the movement now to bring equality in the policing, in economics and in everything else. Our bill is, in a certain sense, at the nexus of racial justice, individual freedom and states’ rights.” The New Jersey Assembly Appropriations Committee approved a bill requiring workers’ compensation and personal injury protection plans to cover the costs of medical cannabis. A new poll found that New York residents support legalizing marijuana by a two-to-one margin. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) recently said he thinks the need for economic recovery amid the coronavirus pandemic will encourage the state to legalize cannabis “soon.” / FEDERAL The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a request from a Minnesota Republican congressional candidate to delay the election following the death of the Legal Marijuana Now Party candidate.

Indiana Democratic congressional candidate Andy Ruff tweeted, “Our neighbors in MI and IL have chosen to capture hundreds of millions in tax revenue & lessen the burden on police by legalizing marijuana. Republicans in IN have chosen to defund public education & criminalize non-violent citizens.

It’s obvious why Gov. Parson wants to distract from his own record — he knows he can’t defend it.” Colorado Gov.

  22. Idaho advocates have submitted a petition to legalize medical marijuana in the state that they plan to qualify for the 2022 ballot. The campaign attempted to get a virtually identical reform measure before voters this election, but they ultimately ditched the effort due to signature gathering complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the state’s refusal to provide petitioning accommodations. Text of the initiative, which was shared with Marijuana Moment, is the same as the 2020 version but for the date of the relevant election. The measure has been sent to the secretary of state’s office for approval to begin signature gathering. And if it is accepted by the end of the week, as advocates hope, they will be required to gather valid signatures equaling at least six percent of the number of votes cast in 2018 in order to qualify, just as they would have this year. If they have to wait until after next week’s election, that signature requirement would likely be significantly larger because they would have to match six percent of the 2020 vote, a presidential election where turnout is already proving to be immense nationwide. Under the reform proposal, patients with qualifying conditions could receive medical cannabis recommendations from physicians and then possess up to four ounces of marijuana and grow up to six plants. This time around, activists will have a full 18 months to collect signatures. “We’re really excited about the 2022 campaign because what we’ve proven in 2020 is that the people of Idaho are very much ready for medical marijuana to be passed,” campaign spokesperson and longtime reform advocate Russ Belville told Marijuana Moment. “Our polls show support in the mid-70 percent range—and our last effort in 2020 to get signatures, we managed to get about 40,000 signatures before the coronavirus shut down our signature gathering.” “We know the signatures are out there, we know that people are ready for this and this time, by filing as early as we’re filing, we’ll be able to take advantage of the entire 18 months signature gathering period that the state constitution allows,” he said. New marijuana reform policies in surrounding states could also help bolster support. Montana is set to vote on legalizing adult-use cannabis next week, and recent polling bodes well for passage. Nevada, Oregon and Washington state already have retail marijuana markets in place. Oregon could also legalize psilocybin mushrooms for therapeutic purposes and decriminalize possession of all currently illicit drugs next week. Utah has a medical cannabis program, leaving Wyoming as the only neighboring state without some form of legal marijuana access. Idaho is also abutted to the north by Canada, where recreational cannabis is legal nationwide. “Basically, about 80 percent of the population of Idaho will be within a one hour drive of legal marijuana,” Belville said. The state will “be seeing all of this tax money leaving the state and headed for other states. So we think that’ll have a big impact.” While those political dynamics could theoretically improve the chances that Idahoans will embrace the proposed policy change, it’s also stands to reason that 2022 will see lower voter turnout compared to this year, particularly among young people who tend to favor cannabis legalization, since it won’t be a presidential election. But advocates say they won’t be taking any chances and plan to utilize their relatively lengthy signature gathering window to ensure that Idaho will see medical cannabis reform on the ballot. For this year, the campaign considered taking legal action against the state to fight for an electronic signature collection option amid the pandemic. They wrote to the secretary of state’s office on several occasions earlier this year, laying out the argument that they had been disadvantaged in their efforts due to social distancing and stay-at-home orders and should be entitled to relief such as an extended deadline and the ability to collect signatures electronically. A federal judge in June agreed that the restrictions necessitated accommodations for the separate, education funding-focused initiative. Officials responded to the cannabis activists that allowing digital signature gathering “would violate a myriad of Idaho laws relating to initiatives.” A federal appeals court ultimately sided with the state in the case filed by the education measure advocates, and the cannabis campaign gave up the 2020 push. Meanwhile, over in Nebraska, marijuana activists are similarly getting a head start on turning their attention to 2022. A medical cannabis legalization campaign is already collecting signatures to put reform on the ballot during that year’s midterm following a state Supreme Court decision that invalidated a 2020 initiative that they’d collected sufficient signatures to qualify.

  24. Support for legalizing marijuana in New York outpaces opposition by a margin of two to one, according to a new poll. Respondents were asked to rate their level of support for a variety of policy issues. On legalizing cannabis, 61 percent of New Yorkers said they’re in favor of enacting the reform at the state level, compared to 30 percent who are opposed. Nine percent said they’re undecided. In a separate question, sixty percent of those surveyed similarly said they back federal marijuana legalization, while 30 percent said they’re against the policy and 10 percent weren’t sure. Demographic breakdowns weren’t made available for any of the new cannabis data. In the new Spectrum News/Ipsos Poll, New Yorkers were asked: How much do you support or oppose the legalization of marijuana in NYS? 61% support; 30% oppose. See more results. https://t.co/gnY5VrONFP pic.twitter.com/anmNoMv38N — Spectrum News Albany (@SPECNewsAlbany) October 27, 2020 The survey from Spectrum News and Ipsos—which involved interviews with 1,451 adults from October 7-19—was released days after Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said that the state will legalize marijuana “soon,” adding that tax revenue generated from cannabis sales will contribute to economic recovery efforts amid the coronavirus pandemic. “There are a lot of reasons to get it done, but one of the benefits is it also brings in revenue, and all states—but especially this state—we need revenue and we’re going to be searching the cupboards for revenue,” he said. “And I think that is going to put marijuana over the top.” Cuomo has included legalization in his last two budget proposals, but negotiations between his office and the legislature fell through both times, with sticking points such as how cannabis tax revenue will be allocated preventing a deal from being reached. A top adviser of his said earlier this month that the plan is to try again to legalize cannabis in New York in early 2021. “We’re working on this. We’re going to reintroduce this in our budget in January,” he said. “We think we can get it done by April 1.” Cuomo was similarly asked about legalization as a means to offset the budget deficit caused by the pandemic in May. While he said it’s the federal government’s “obligation as part of managing this national pandemic that they provide financial relief to state and local governments,” he added that “I support legalization of marijuana passage. I’ve worked very hard to pass it.” “I believe we will, but we didn’t get it done this last session because it’s a complicated issue and it has to be done in a comprehensive way,” he said. Cuomo indicated in April that he thought the 2020 legislative session was “effectively over” for the year and raised doubts that lawmakers could pass cannabis reform vote remotely via video conferencing amid social distancing measures. Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes (D) made similar comments when asked about the policy in April, though she seemed to signal that she laid partial blame for the failure to enact reform on the governor prioritizing other issues during the pandemic. In June, a senator said the legislature should include cannabis legalization in a criminal justice reform package, making the case that the policy change is a necessary step especially amid debates over policing reform. That didn’t come to pass, however. The New York State Association of Counties said in a report released last month that legalizing marijuana for adult use “will provide the state and counties with resources for public health education and technical assistance” to combat the pandemic. Meanwhile, the state Senate has approved several modest marijuana reform bills in recent months. The chamber passed a bill in July that broadens the pool of people eligible to have their low-level marijuana convictions automatically expunged. That was preceded by a Senate vote in favor of legislation to prevent tenants from being evicted solely because of their legal use of medical marijuana. Thanks to a bill expanding cannabis decriminalization in the state that the governor signed last year, the New York State Unified Court System made an announcement last month outlining steps that people can take to clear their records for prior marijuana convictions. Locally, a local law enacted in New York City this summer bans pre-employment drug testing for marijuana for most positions. It was finalized in July following regulators’ approval of certain exemptions. In other polling news, voters in neighboring New Jersey appear positioned to approve a ballot referendum to legalize cannabis next week. A survey released last week shows that 65 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of the reform proposal. The results are statistically consistent with the prior three polls of Garden State voters from the same firm as well as one from Fairleigh Dickinson University, which similarly found roughly two to one support for the measure. A separate survey released earlier this month by Stockton University showed three to one support for legalizing cannabis among New Jersey voters.

  25. The city of Madison, Mississippi is asking the state Supreme Court to invalidate a medical marijuana legalization initiative that’s on the ballot. While city officials say they aren’t making the appeal because they necessarily oppose the reform proposal, they’re arguing that the measure was unlawfully placed on the ballot because it violates the state Constitution’s procedural rule on citizen initiatives. The emergency petition, filed on Monday, cites a law stipulating that “signatures of the qualified electors from any congressional district shall not exceed one-fifth (1/5) of the total number of signatures required to qualify an initiative petition for placement upon the ballot.” But that policy went into effect when Mississippi had five congressional districts, and that’s since been reduced to four, making it mathematically impossible to adhere to. “Petitioners’ challenge to the filing of the petition for Initiative Measure No. 65 is a challenge to form,” the filing says. “The measure could be about any topic, and its constitutional invalidity would remain. No matter what the content of the measure is, the petition signatures are insufficient under the plain language” of the Constitution until the lawmakers institute a fix. “It is unfortunate that the Legislature’s failure means that the Constitution cannot be amended by initiative until either Section 273(3) is amended or Mississippi regains a congressional seat,” the lawsuit states. “This action is not about the wisdom of legalizing medical marijuana. It bears repeating that the City of Madison and Mayor Hawkins Butler are not opposed to a well-regulated medical marijuana program for the truly suffering,” the city’s filing says. “What the City and the Mayor oppose is the failure of the Legislature to amend Section 273(3) and the failure of the Secretary of State to follow the plain language of the Constitution. A constitutional amendment must be enacted constitutionally.” The filing does contain one substantive complaint about the measure, however. “Initiative Measure No. 65 would likely allow any licensed ‘medical marijuana treatment center’ to grow marijuana within residential areas, substantially harming the City’s legitimate interest in conserving the value of property and protecting the health and safety of its citizenry,” it says. Madison officials are asking the court to deem the placement of the legalization initiative unconstitutional and “issue whatever extraordinary writs appropriate” to nullify the vote. “The constitutional process for amending our constitution has not been followed and the public has been misled about the content of the initiative,” Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler (R) said in a press release. “Initiative 65 gives marijuana providers greater rights than any other lawful business. Such a significant change must be lawfully adopted.” On Tuesday, the court ordered the secretary of state’s office to file response to the petition by the close of business on Wednesday. Under the reform measure, patients with debilitating medical issues would be allowed to legally obtain marijuana after getting a doctor’s recommendation. The proposal includes 22 qualifying conditions such as cancer, chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder, and patients would be able to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana per 14-day period. Mississippians for Compassionate Care (MCC), the campaign behind the initiative, has faced a series of obstacles before and after qualifying for the state’s November ballot. Most recently, President Trump’s reelection campaign issued a cease and desist order against the Mississippi advocates, claiming “unauthorized and misleading representation” of the president’s position on the reform measure in one of its mailers—even though he has on multiple occasions spoken favorably on camera about medical cannabis. But the primary complication for advocates is the fact that two competing initiatives will appear alongside each other on the ballot. After MCC qualified their measure by collecting signatures from voters, the legislature approved an alternative that is viewed as more restrictive. The result is a muddled ballot that requires voters to answer a two-step series of questions—and that potential confusion threatens to jeopardize the activist-led proposal. The Mississippi State Medical Association and American Medical Association have also contributed to the opposition, circulating a sample ballot that instructs voters on how to reject Initiative 65. Earlier this month, Gov. Tate Reeves (R) signed legislation that amends state law to allow people to obtain marijuana-derived medications that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration. He also reiterated his opposition to broader medical cannabis reform, stating that he’s “against efforts to make marijuana mainstream.” In June, lawmakers introduced yet another medical cannabis alternative resolution that would’ve similarly posed a threat to the activist-driven reform initiative. But, to advocates’ relief, the legislation didn’t advance before lawmakers went home for the summer. “The secretary of state properly qualified Initiative 65 under the same constitutional procedures used for every other successful voter initiative. The lawsuit from the City of Madison is meritless,” Mississippians for Compassionate Care Communications Director Jamie Grantham said. “This is simply a last-ditch effort by political and bureaucratic opponents to deny relief to patients with 22 specific debilitating medical conditions.” This isn’t the first time that this election cycle that courts have been involved in state-level cannabis legalization ballot initiatives. The Montana Supreme Court last week rejected a lawsuit seeking to invalidate a marijuana legalization measure that will appear on the state’s November ballot. With weeks before the election, opponents asked the court to quash the measure, arguing that because it involves appropriating funds, it violates state statute on citizen initiatives. The court didn’t weigh in on the merits of the case; rather, it said the petitioners with the reform campaign failed to demonstrate “urgency or emergency factors” that would justify moving the case into its jurisdiction instead of going through trial and appeals courts first, which opponents said they will now do. In neighboring Nebraska, the state Supreme Court ruled last month that a measure to legalize medical cannabis that had qualified for the November ballot could not proceed because it violated the state’s single-subject rule for ballot initiatives. Activists there are already pursuing a simplified medical cannabis measure for 2022.

  26. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a new interview that if Democrats retake control of his chamber, he will prioritize advancing marijuana legalization legislation. In a video chat hosted by Green Enterprise last week, Schumer discussed his cannabis reform bill, which would federally deschedule the plant, reinvest tax revenue into communities most impacted by the drug war and fund efforts to expunge prior marijuana records. He said the state-level legalization movement has demonstrated that the policy works, and it’s a necessary step to promote racial equity. “I’m a big fighter for racial justice, and the marijuana laws have been one of the biggest examples of racial injustice, and so to change them makes sense,” he said. “And that fits in with all of the movement now to bring equality in the policing, in economics and in everything else. Our bill is, in a certain sense, at the nexus of racial justice, individual freedom and states’ rights.” Green Enterprise – Federally Decriminalizing Cannabis with Senator Chuck Schumer https://t.co/uBu2XKFjI6 — Black Enterprise (@blackenterprise) October 23, 2020 Schumer’s legislation, the Marijuana Freedom and Opportunity Act, was first introduced in 2018 and was refiled last year with a House companion version. If he’s reinstalled as senate majority leader, the top Democrat said he “will put this bill in play,” adding “I think we’ll have a good chance to pass it.” States that have legalized adult-use marijuana have helped normalize the policy and revealed the benefits of reform, the senator said, and if voters approve additional legalization measures during the election next week, that will further bolster the chances of federally ending prohibition. “It helps push things over. What happens then is the people in those states say, ‘see, this was a good thing,'” he said. “All the people who were, you know, wah-wah-wah, something terrible is gonna happen, lose their credibility.” But he reiterated that, in order to legalize at the federal level, voters need to put Democrats back in control of Congress. “If I become majority leader, I put this on the floor and it’s likely to pass. So, how do I become majority leader? Well, this is a little political you’ll forgive me, Andrew, but back to the facts, you vote for a Democratic senator in your state, that’s going to make it happen,” he said. “Vote if you believe in reform here, if you believe in decriminalizing cannabis. The thing to do is vote for your Democratic Senate candidate because they’ll be part of my team to get this done.” Schumer made similar comments in an interview with Leafly last month. House Democratic leaders last month moved to postpose a planned floor vote on a separate marijuana descheduling and justice reinvestment bill until later this year. Meanwhile, actor Kal Penn, who starred in the weed-focused Harold & Kumar film series and worked in the White House Office of Public Engagement during the Obama administration, praised Schumer’s cannabis stance. “You don’t have to be a stoner (or play one) to change marijuana laws. Had a great call with @SenSchumer this eve,” he tweeted. “He’s committed to decriminalization if he’s Senate Majority Leader after the election. One of the many reminders of why voting matters + progress takes hard work.” You don’t have to be a stoner (or play one) to change marijuana laws. Had a great call with @SenSchumer this eve. He’s committed to decriminalization if he’s Senate Majority Leader after the election. One of the many reminders of why voting matters + progress takes hard work. https://t.co/lw5FsZwrRB — Kal Penn (@kalpenn) October 26, 2020 The senator has become a strong ally for comprehensive cannabis reform. Last year, for example, he sided with reform advocates who argued that passing a bill to protect banks that service the marijuana industry was not enough. “Congress should not enact banking reform alone and think the job is done,” he said. “We need decriminalization at the federal level, criminal justice reform, and investment in opportunity for minority & women-owned small businesses.” Schumer is also a champion of the hemp industry, particularly in New York. He said at an event at a hemp business last year that the state is especially well positioned to take advantage of the crop’s legal status, stating that “our soil, our weather, our conditions are very good for industrial hemp, so we could become one of the centers of growing.” Also at the event, he called on the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to extend a public comment period for its proposed hemp regulations, citing concerns about certain prohibitive rules. The federal agency did end up reopening the feedback window this year. New Jersey Lawmakers Approve Bill Providing Medical Marijuana Patient Insurance Benefits Photo courtesy of Senate Democrats.

  27. Employment insurance benefits would be extended to cover the costs of medical marijuana for registered patients in New Jersey under a bill that cleared an Assembly committee on Monday. While medical cannabis has been legal in New Jersey since 2010, nothing in current state statute currently stipulates that costs associated with the medication must be covered via workers’ compensation or personal injury protection (PIP). That would change under legislation sponsored by Assemblymembers John Burzichelli (D), Herb Conaway (D) and Joann Downey (D). “Many workers’ compensation insurance companies and PIPs are still hesitant to cover medical cannabis or have an outright policy of denying it,” the lawmakers said in a joint statement. “People injured and receiving coverage through PIP or worker’s comp can come away from a doctor’s appointment with a prescription for medical marijuana; however, it is not definite that their healthcare plan will cover it or reimburse them for the costs.” “The dispensing of medical cannabis is, in part, considered an important piece in the national effort to combat the opioid crisis. Medical cannabis is seen as an effective pain treatment option that is cheaper, less addictive than opioids, and often preferred to prescribe to patients over opioids. A patient and their doctor should have every option available to make the best decisions for their care; and, medical cannabis as an option growing in demand, health insurance plans—including worker’s comp and PIP—should cover its costs too.” The bill advanced through the Assembly Appropriations Committee in a 7-4 vote. Assembly members BURZICHELLI, @herbconaway & @EricAndJoann BILL TO REQUIRE WORKER’S COMPENSATION AND PIPS TO COVER MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT CLEARS ASSEMBLY PANEL https://t.co/CVaaw18zIt — NJ Assembly Democrats (@njassemblydems) October 26, 2020 Text of the legislation states that “an employer or workers’ compensation insurance carrier or private passenger automobile insurance carrier shall provide coverage for costs associated with the medical use of marijuana.” In another workplace cannabis development in New Jersey earlier this year, a former Amazon warehouse worker and medical marijuana patient who was fired over a positive THC test secured a procedural victory by a federal judge in April. The court granted his request for a motion to remand, kicking his case to the state Superior Court for consideration—rather than a federal U.S. District Court—where he stands a better chance of prevailing. The passage of the reform bill in the Assembly committee comes one week before New Jersey residents are set to vote on a referendum to legalize cannabis for adult use. A committee was set to hold a public hearing on the measure last week, but it was cancelled shortly after being announced. Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D), who chairs that panel and previously introduced a legalization bill that did not advance to a floor vote, said earlier this month that he’s been working in recent weeks with the governor’s office and legislative leaders to finalize a detailed enabling bill to implement legal market regulations. He said the measure, which could be passed as soon as the first week of November, would look similar to a bill he previously introduced, though he wants to add a retroactive provision to end cannabis-related prosecutions for pending cases. If polling is any indication, it appears that voters are poised to pass the cannabis referendum on their ballots next month. A survey released last week found that that 65 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of the marijuana referendum. Just 29 percent are opposed to the policy change and six percent remain undecided. The results are statistically consistent with three prior polls from the same firm, as well as one from Fairleigh Dickinson University, which similarly found roughly two to one support for the measure. A separate survey released earlier this month by Stockton University showed three to one support for legalizing cannabis among New Jersey voters. Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has been actively campaigning in favor of the referendum, participating in fundraisers and ads to encourage voters to approve it. He recorded a video that was released by NJ CAN 2020 earlier this month, outlining why he’s embraced the policy change. Murphy said that the ongoing criminalization of cannabis in New Jersey wastes taxpayer dollars, and he emphasized that prohibition is enforced in a racially disproportionate manner. The governor similarly said in a recent interview that the marijuana reform proposal prioritizes social justice. Murphy also recently called on voters to support the proposal in an email blast that was circulated by the New Jersey Democratic State Committee. He said in July that legalizing cannabis is “an incredibly smart thing to do” both from an economic and social justice perspective. The governor isn’t alone in his attempts to get out the vote for cannabis reform. Filmmaker Kevin Smith earlier this month urged his Twitter followers to “VOTE YES when you see State Public Question Number 1: Constitutional Amendment to Legalize Marijuana.” NJ CAN 2020, one of two campaign committees working to pass the cannabis referendum, recently released a series of English- and Spanish-language video ads, after having published one prior ad. Meanwhile, campaign finance records compiled show that legal marijuana supporters are out-raising opponents by a ratio of nearly 130:1. In June, the state Assembly passed a cannabis decriminalization bill that would make possession of up to two ounces a civil penalty without the threat of jail time, though it hasn’t advance in the Senate.
