The Stigma Attached to Marijuana

The Stigma Attached to Marijuana There is a stigma attached to marijuana.  I know this is true because i feel it.  My husband thinks its hysterical that I have an interest in marijuana.  I feel the stigma attached to marijuana even though my interest is not so much in the weed itself, but in: business; economic development in NY; jobs in NY; criminal justice reform as it relates to the racial injustice perpetrated by prohibition. The weed itself is not my cup of tea right now but my husband still thinks it’s funny.  He wishes I would get another interest. There was a really awesome piece in the Poughkeepsie Journal News last month.   It made a strong impression on me even though it is a letter from a politician and I have little use for politicians generally.  In this letter from the local politician to the person at the newspaper “who decided what words to use where.” He tells them to stop using the term “recreational “ as it applies to marijuana legalization. “Decriminalized, legalized, regulated, state sanctioned marijuana distribution, use and possession is not about encouraging or even a benign acceptance of a “recreational” use of the substance.… 

NY Marijuana Legalization Study Part 3 of 3

NY Marijuana Legalization Study Part 3 of 3 As you recall from my prior blogs this week, the NY study on marijuana legalization basically concluded that it was not a question of whether marijuana should be legalized, but how it should be done.  In part 1 and part 2 of my summary, I went over impacts related to health, criminal justice and public safety and will conclude today with youth and education and implementation. Youth and Education The section on youth and education with respect to marijuana legalization was pretty short and stark.  If this bothers you, I guess you know where you stand on this issue. This kind of shocked me, I guess just because it is not what we are used to hearing.  The report says that the educational approach to marijuana for our youth shouldn’t be just say no – but instead – just say later… “Prioritization should be given to an educational approach that emphasizes safety, mitigates potential harm, and suggests that youth delay use.”  Wow.  That really blows my mind.  If it was any other way, our youth would see through the hypocrisy. Marijuana use rates among high school students in Colorado did not… 

New York Marijuana Legalization Study Part 2 of 3

NY Marijuana Legalization Study Part 2 of 3 Yesterday I posted a blog about the recently released NY Marijuana Study.  I covered some basics and the health analysis and impacts of legalizing recreational marijuana in New York.  Today’s post is part 2 of 3 and will cover criminal justice and public safety.  I will also cover the economic effects of legalization of recreational marijuana in New York.  You will recall that the report’s conclusion was that it is “less of a question of whether to legalize but how to do so responsibly.” NY Marijuana Legalization and Criminal Justice and Public Safety Driving Impaired: The NY Marijuana report goes into great detail about the impact of marijuana arrests on the population.  One of the most interesting, is the rate of intoxicated drivers. In 2007, 8.6% percent of drivers tested positive for marijuana derivatives. Six years later that increased half again as much to 12.6%.  At the same time, the percentage of drivers testing positive for alcohol declined from 12.4% to 8.3 percent. Interestingly, the rate of intoxicated drivers stayed nearly the same (21% to 20.9%) over that time period,  A fair share of the population was driving on hooch… 

New York Marijuana Legalization Study 1 of 3

New York’s Marijuana Legalization Study 1 of 3 I finally got a chance to read New York’s marijuana legalization study released earlier this month.  It was better than I had expected.  I thought the study was going to be a lot of political hay but there was some good information there.  It’s a big report so I will report on the findings over a few blogs.  Today, I will cover the study’s preparation, some of the definitions in the report  and the health issues covered in the report.  In my next couple of blogs, I will cover criminal justice and public safety, economic considerations, youth and education and implementation. The title of the report is the NYS Assessment of the Potential Impact of Regulated Marijuana in NYS.  First – lets get this out of the way.  The study concludes that it is not a question of if marijuana should be legalized but how marijuana should be legalized responsibly.  The positive effects of legalization outweigh the potential negative impacts. The report includes analysis based on what other surrounding states and Canada are doing and how that impacts what NY should do about marijuana legalization.  This might be the most…
