LAKE WORTH, Fla.—Selma Yeshion, an 83-year-old retiree here, says she long considered marijuana a menace. "I thought it was something that was addictive" and "would lead to harder drugs," she says.
Then she attended a presentation at the local L'Dor Va-Dor synagogue in April put on by a group called the Silver Tour. The group aims to persuade seniors to support legislation to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes in Florida. A series of speakers, including a doctor, a patient and several advocates, argued that pot was just what the silver-haired set needed to combat conditions like chronic pain and insomnia.
Ms. Yeshion was sold. "I want to get some cannabis," she said afterward, with a big smile. "I have pain in my back, so it would be nice. Damn it to hell, I want to try it once in my lifetime."

It truly blows my mind how generous people are with their weed. I have friends that won’t let their girlfriends borrow their cars but are only too happy to share their pot with the world.
Seriously, think about the last time you were with a group of people eating a pizza. You get down to that last slice and everyone gets all tense about who gets to eat it. You start counting off how many slices each person had or how much each person paid. That shit never happens with weed. People will easily give up the last hit of a bong. And how many times have you been eating pizza and one of your idiot friends comes up and asks for a slice? It’s kinda annoying, right? Even when he or she offers to give you a few bucks for it you’re still a little pissed off. Again, with weed it’s not a problem. Sure, take a hit! What? No, you don’t have to pay me anything for it…free marijuana for everyone!
I have been to countless parties where someone I’ve just met will say, “Hey, a few of us are going to burn one outside. Wanna come?” But I have never – and I mean NEVER – had anyone at a party come up to me and go, “Hey, a bunch of us are going to fuck my girlfriend. You want in?”It truly blows my mind how generous people are with their weed. I have friends that... more

This film explores the history of the American government's official policy on marijuana in the 20th century. Rising with xenophobia with Mexican immigration and their taste for smoking marijuana, we see the establishment of a wrong headed federal drug policy as a crime issue as opposed to a public health approach. Fueled by prejudice, hysterical propaganda and political opportunism undeterred by voices of reason on the subject, we follow the story of a costly and futile crusade against a substance with questionable ill effects that has damaged basic civil liberties.This film explores the history of the American government's official policy on... more
SAN FRANCISCO -- The state Supreme Court turned back a challenge to California's medical marijuana law Thursday from two counties that said they were being forced to condone federal drug-law violations by state-approved pot users.
San Diego and San Bernardino county officials had sued to overturn Proposition 215, the 1996 initiative that legalized medical marijuana, and a more recent law that required them to issue identification cards to users who had a doctor's recommendation.
The justices unanimously denied review of an appellate decision in July that concluded California was free to decide whether to punish drug users under its own laws, despite the federal ban on marijuana.
The decision is "a momentous victory for countless seriously ill patients," said Adam Wolf, an American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who defended the state law in the appeals court. He said the counties should stop wasting money "in a doomed effort to undermine the will of California voters."
But Thomas Bunton, a deputy San Diego County counsel, said the county would ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case.
The California law "authorizes people to engage in conduct that's forbidden by federal law," Bunton said.
He said San Diego and San Bernardino counties particularly objected to the follow-up statute on identification cards that the Legislature passed in 2003. The cards, issued by the counties, protect their holders from arrest by state or local police for possessing small amounts of medical marijuana.
The U.S. Supreme Court has allowed federal authorities to rely on U.S. drug laws to prosecute medical marijuana patients and their suppliers, and to shut dispensaries in California and the 11 other states with laws similar to Prop. 215. But the court has not prevented the states from deciding which drugs to prohibit under their own laws.
In a separate case, the city of Garden Grove ( Orange County ) has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a California appellate ruling requiring police to return a patient's medical marijuana after state charges were dismissed. That case also involves a potential conflict between federal and state law.
In the counties' lawsuit, the Fourth District Court of Appeal in San Diego ruled July 31 that federal law doesn't require states to impose criminal penalties for marijuana possession. The purpose of the federal law, the court said, is "to combat recreational drug use, not to regulate a state's medical practices."

Above the Influence's faux documentary, Stoners In The Mist, is a film so prejudiced that even the White House -- which commissioned the interactive video -- is hesitant to promote it.
Available online at the AbovetheInfluence.com website (a project of the White House's multi-billion dollar National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign, Stoners In The Mist is a series of vignettes -- each designed to grossly exaggerate and exploit common pothead stereotypes. But promoting falsehoods about the physical and mental effects of weed is nothing new for federal politicians and bureaucrats. What sets Stoners In The Mist apart from prior examples of government-financed anti-pot excrement is the film's shocking and exceedingly malevolent tone.
In this case, cannabis consumers are portrayed, quite literally, as less than human. Rather, they are mockingly characterized as wild game -- to be hunted, tagged, and bagged by the film's 'Crocodile Hunter' inspired narrator.
The host refers to pot smokers as lab "specimens" whose safety requires them to be locked up in an "artificially controlled environment" (a not-so-subtle endorsement of jail, perhaps?)

Officials say they have uncovered 260 tons of marijuana in a massive drug bust in southern Afghanistan.
The drugs are estimated to be worth more than $400 million and were BURNED on site.
British Capt. Mike Finney, a NATO spokesman, confirms that amount was found and says a trench some 6 feet deep had been dug out by a bulldozer and filled with bags of marijuana. The trench was covered by foliage to camouflage it.
