Great News From Congress!

Posted by LEAP
U.S. House and Senate negotiators agreed on Tuesday on the final details of the FY 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act, which contains at least three BIG victories for reformers:

* Washington, DC will finally be allowed to implement the medical marijuana initiative that voters overwhelmingly approved in 1998 but has been blocked by Congress each year since then.

* Funding for the White House "drug czar's" ad budget has been slashed by more than a third of its size last year. Studies have repeatedly shown that these ads actually cause teens to use more -- not fewer -- drugs.

* Washington, DC will be able to use federal funds to implement syringe exchange programs.

Here's how Congressional appropriators themselves describe the news:
Removing Special Restrictions on the District of Columbia:...Also allows the District to implement a referendum on use of marijuana for medical purposes as has been done in other states, allows use of Federal funds for needle exchange programs except in locations considered inappropriate by District authorities...

...

National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign: $45 million, $25 million below 2009 and the budget request, for a national ad campaign providing anti-drug messages directed at youth. Reductions were made in this program because of evaluations questioning its effectiveness. Part of the savings was redirected to other ONDCP drug-abuse-reduction programs.
Finally, some great news from Congress!

Bout time...

MD and VA are about to storm the border.

I bet you there's going to be a one hundred and one medical marijuana dispensaries in SE by the end of the summer.

SE drug dealers are going to be screwed and trying to pay taxes and go legit.

Adams Morgan is going to become Little Amsterdam. Those hookahs ain't going to filled with flavored tobacco no mo'.

Congress is going to ask why 200,000 lbs of marijuana are being sold per month if only 50,000 could be smoked by all the residents of Washington, DC combined.
