Legalize It: Supreme Court Tells Obama To Make Up His Mind On Marijuana

Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing the state of Colorado over its marijuana laws and the Supreme Court wants to know what President Barack Obama thinks about legalizing marijuana.

High hopes after ganja march

THREE-TIME Grammy winner Bunny Wailer, singer Denroy Morgan and members of the Mystic Revealers band were among the artistes who participated in Saturday's Global Ganja Motorcade/March.

The 74-kilometre trek from Emancipation Square in Spanish Town, St Catherine to Goodyear Oval in Morant Bay, St Thomas was reminiscent of the 1865 march of Jamaica's National Hero Paul Bogle.

"The motorcade was well supported with 40 to 50 vehicles," Maxine Stowe, music insider and ganja legalisation advocate, told the Jamaica Observer.

The Global Ganja Motorcade/March is Wailer's latest attempt to shed light on recent changes in Jamaican law regarding the use and production of marijuana.

The first was in 1996, while the second was on April 20 last year.

ACLU Files Medical Marijuana Employment Lawsuit In Rhode Island

I have never been fired from a job before, but I’d imagine it sucks very badly. I have quit jobs in the past, but I’ve never been terminated. If I was terminated for being a horrible employee, then I think I would be more accepting. But if I was fired for something that was unfair, I would be very upset about it. For instance, if I was fired for using a medicine that is legal in the state that I worked in, I would be extremely upset.

Justices seek US government's views on Colorado marijuana law

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday asked President Barack Obama's administration for its views on a lawsuit filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma against Colorado over its voter-approved law legalizing recreational marijuana use by adults.

The Obama administration has allowed states to experiment with marijuana legalization even though the drug remains illegal under federal law.

The high court's action delays its decision on whether the nine justices will hear the case. There is no deadline for the U.S. Justice Department to respond to the court's request.

In their challenge to Colorado's law, Nebraska and Oklahoma said marijuana is being smuggled across their borders and that drugs threaten the health and safety of children.
