Discount Tire Donates $1 Million to Fight Legalization in Arizona: Time for a Boycott

cannabudThe Discount Tire Co. has just contributed $1 million to the primary campaign working to defeat Arizona’s Proposition 205, which would legalize cannabis for everyone 21 and older and is up for a vote next month.

Discount Tire, the largest privately help company in Arizona and one of the largest companies throughout the country with over 900 stores, donated the $1 million to Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy. This is according to financial records released by the Arizona Secretary of State’s office.

Clearly a boycott is in order for those who support a reformation of our failed cannabis policies. Anyone who supports legalization should no longer shop at a Discount Tire store, and should urge their friends and family to do the same.

E-mail Leak Reveals Clinton’s Marijuana Debate Prep, in Support of Marijuana Banking

A new Wikileaks e-mail leak shows how presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was prepared to respond to certain marijuana-related questions in the most recent debatedeb, including her position on whether banks should be allowed to do business with marijuana companies. The e-mails were part of a hack of John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chair.

One of the e-mails states:

“If pressed: what about marijuana banking restrictions – should we let marijuana businesses access banking services?

• I do think these businesses – if they are operating in according with state law, and with federal guidelines – should be able to access banking services. I know that the Obama Administration has taken steps in this direction, and I think those steps are smart.

Just 3 Weeks Until These 5 States Vote to Legalize Cannabis

5 States VoteWe are now just three weeks and two days away from the November 8th election. During this election, five states will be voting on the legalization of cannabis for recreational use. Three additional states (Florida, Arkansas and North Dakota) are voting on medical cannabis legalization.

Below is a short summary of all five recreational legalization initiatives:

Cannabis Legalization Initiatives:

  • Nevada: If passed into law, Question 2 would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis. The personal cultivation of up to six plants, and state-licensed cannabis retail outlets, would also be allowed. Question 2 is the first among these batch of initiatives to officially make the ballot.
  • Arizona: The fact that legalization is up for a vote in Arizona is one of the more surprising things about this election.

New Poll: 57% of U.S. Adults Say Cannabis Should be Legal


Click to enlarge.

A large majority of adults in the U.S. say that cannabis should be legal for all uses, according to a new Pew Research Center poll sent to us by press release.

“The share of Americans who favor legalizing the use of marijuana continues to increase, says Abigail Geiger of the Pew Research Center. “Today, 57% of U.S. adults say the use of marijuana should be made legal, while 37% say it should be illegal. A decade ago, opinion on legalizing marijuana was nearly the reverse – just 32% favored legalization, while 60% were opposed.”

According to Geiger; “Young adults have disproportionately driven the shift toward public support of the drug, though support is rising among other generations as well. Millennials – those ages 18 to 35 in 2016 – are more than twice as likely to support legalization of marijuana as they were in 2006 (71% today, up from 34% in 2006), and are significantly more likely to support legalization than other generations.”

DEA Withdraws Ban on Kratom, Opens Up Public Comment Period


Powdered kratom, which looks similar to cannabis kief.

In a surprising move the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has announced that they are withdrawing their recently-announced emergency ban on kratom – which would have placed it as a schedule 1 drug – and instead are opening up a public comment period. The announcement was made on a post in the Federal Register. The public comment period will end on December 1st.

“This is a truly remarkable moment to see the Drug Enforcement Administration, a law enforcement agency with a long track record of ignoring both science and public opinion, being forced to consider the scientific evidence and public opinion before taking additional steps with respect to kratom,” says Grant Smith, deputy director of national affairs at the Drug Policy Alliance. “People who oppose a federal kratom ban only have about six weeks to tell the federal government that kratom does not belong in our broken drug scheduling system.”
