Good news medical marijuana patients of Connecticut: medical marijuana dispensaries will be opening in Branford, Bridgeport, Bristol, Hartford, Montville and South Windsor in the near future.
The state gave out the six licenses yesterday afternoon – the first issued in the state so far. The shops expect to open by the summer when licensed producers can get their first harvest out.

St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch.

Ken Wells uses marijuana daily to control his epilepsy, and was happy to tell Fox News St. Louis all about it in a report last night.
The report centered around Wells and his story as well as laws being pushed in Missouri and Illinois, but what stood out most to us was how amazingly ignorant St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch sounds when talking about medical marijuana.


After presidential candidate Barack Obama pledged to stop interfering with state medical marijuana laws in states where the medicinal use of cannabis has been legalized, advocates were hopeful that they could at last concentrate on getting medicine safely to patients, rather than worry about federal raids.

That hope was nice while it lasted, but is quickly evaporating now that the Administration is pursuing a multi-front war on medicinal cannabis providers and, by extension, the patients who count on dispensaries for safe access.
Marijuana Policy Project Executive Director Rob Kampia in a Sunday editorial in the Huffington Post noted the turnaround, saying “over the past eight months [Obama] has become arguably the worst president in U.S. history regarding medical marijuana.”

Jerry Brown: “I have been on the side of law enforcement for a long time, and you can be sure that we will be together on this November ballot”

​Bonehead move, Moonbeam. Gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown on Tuesday said he does not support legalizing marijuana in California.

Brown’s ill-advised announcement comes as the Golden State prepares to vote on the marijuana issue on November’s ballot, the same ballot voters will use to decide if he will be the next Governor of California, reports The State Column.
Moonbeam didn’t even have a coherent argument against cannabis legalization. In an appalling lapse of logic, the Democratic ex-governor said legalizing pot would open the floodgates for Mexican drug cartels — sort of like arguing that alcohol Prohibition should have been continued to quell the gang violence associated with the illegal booze trade.
“Every year we get more and more marijuana, and every year we find more guys with AK-47s coming out of Mexico going into forests and growing more and more dangerous and losing control,” a confused Brown said.
Marijuana policy reformer Steve Fox quickly pointed out “the idiocy of decrying the involvement of drug cartels in the marijuana trade while opposing a regulated system of distribution.”
