Cynthia Nixon: Marijuana is "Effectively Legal" For White People

It feels extremely relevant alongside another news item from yesterday, wherein we discovered that former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is taking a job in the marijuana industry, while his own political party uses their control of the White House to double down on that racist "war", and a disproportionately high number of people of color are still in prison from-or otherwise affected by convictions of-working in the very same industry. He says he believes legalizing marijuana can be helpful to the nation's veterans and as a way to help fight the USA opioid drug crisis.

These new registers are designed for marijuana dispensaries, and their software aims to help licensed business owners track sales and inventory, create reports, and comply with state regulatory agencies by sending reports to them automatically.

Boehner said in a statement his position "has evolved" from opposing to supporting legalization of marijuana.

Nixon, who is challenging Cuomo in a Democratic primary, says NY should follow the lead of eight other states and end a "key front" in what she says is the "racist" war on drugs.

In a joint statement issued by Speaker Boehner and Governor Weld specifically promoted the potential for medical marijuana use by veterans. The company also announced that former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld has joined its advisory board.

West Ham , now six points clear of the relegation zone, were ecstatic to escape with a point despite a largely limp display. Chelsea FC are in fifth place in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.

"The trend that we're seeing towards acceptance of cannabis has gone hand in hand with greater education and conversation around the plant, which has naturally lessened stigmatization", said Linda Gilbert, Managing Director of BDS Analytics' Consumer Insights Division. Marijuana stocks, many of which are listed in Canada because of USA legal uncertainty, have suffered this year after almost tripling in 2017.

Unlike Boehner, Weld has been consistently advocating for medical cannabis since 1992, and supported his home state's legalization of recreational marijuana in 2016. They focused particularly on the view of a large majority of Americans that cannabis should be legalized on a federal level.

We need to look no further than our nation's 20 million veterans, 20 percent of whom, according to a 2017 American Legion survey, reportedly use cannabis to self-treat PTSD, chronic pain and other ailments.

Boehner also said the move would curtail federal-state conflict on marijuana policies.
