Illinois Weighs Tightly-Regulated Cannabis

 

Katherine Jacobsen, The Daily Northwestern

The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act gained new momentum last week in the Illinois House when state Rep. Tom Cross (R-Plainfield) shifted his support in favor of the bill.

Cross said he decided to collaborate with the bill's sponsor, state Rep. Lou Lang (D-Skokie), to "tighten the bill up" after hearing from constituents who said the use of medicinal marijuana is the only thing that eases their severe pain. The bill failed to pass through the state House in January.

If the bill passes, Illinois would have the strictest medicinal marijuana law in the country. read more

Billionaire aims for Ohio Legalization

 

Lisa Kroll, Forbes

One of the biggest backers of medical marijuana in the country, Peter Lewis is seeking proposals to conduct a ballot initiative campaign to legalize marijuana for medical use in Ohio.

Now Lewis is considering pushing it through in his home state of Ohio. That’s where Progressive (nyse: PGR), the auto insurer founded by his father and run by Lewis for many years, is headquartered. Lewis, who now spends much of his time in Florida, gave up his CEO role in 2000 but remains chairman. About 90% of his net worth is held in shares of Progressive read more

A Delay in Rhode Island

 

Thomas J. Morgan, The Providence Journal

The Rhode Island affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday urged Governor Chafee to proceed with issuing certificates of registration to three medical-marijuana dispensaries approved by the state Department of Health, despite "a threatening letter" last week from U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha suggesting that those dispensaries may be criminally liable under federal law.

Steven Brown, ACLU executive director, said in a news release that holding up issuance of the registrations, as Chafee did on Monday in response to the threat of criminal prosecution, "is directly contrary to state law and, in any event, is not mandated in any way by Mr. Neronha's disturbing letter." read more

Backpedaling in Montana

 

Morgan Fox, MPP

Despite being disappointed with the language of the bill, it appears that Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer is not upset enough to veto the final version of S.B. 423, which would destroy the burgeoning medical marijuana industry, force patients to go to the illicit market, and make it extremely difficult for patients to qualify for the program.

On April 30, Gov. Schweitzer announced that while he was not pleased that the legislature had ignored most of the amendments he suggested when he first sent the bill back to them, he felt that it would be better to pass S.B. 423 than leave the status quo. He said he will let the bill become law without signing or vetoing it. He still has time to change his mind, however. read more
