Subject: June 9 NORML news
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR THE REFORM OF MARIJUANA LAWS 1001 Connecticut Ave., NW Suite 1010 Washington, D.C. 20036 E-MAIL NATLNORML@AOL.COM . . . a weekly service for the media on news items related to Marijuana Prohibition. by Rob Kampia, Chapter Coordinator of NORML June 9, 1994 - CONGRESSMAN WHO SUPPORTS MARIJUANA DECRIMINALIZATION WINS RE-ELECTION PRIMARY IN CALIFORNIA On Tuesday, June 7, freshman U.S. Representative Dan Hamburg (D-California) won his re-election primary with 62% of the vote. When running for office in 1992, Mr. Hamburg advocated an adult's right to grow his or her own marijuana. Demagoging on the drug issue, Hamburg's opponent in this year's primary tried to paint Hamburg as a "pro-drug" candidate. In reaction to the primary victory, Mr. Hamburg's office says that his stance on marijuana decriminalization did "nothing at all" to affect the election outcome. If Hamburg wins the general election in November, he will remain one of a handful of members of Congress who publicly supports ending the War Against Marijuana Consumers. [For more information, call Dan Hamburg's office at 202-225-3311.] - HEAD OF INTERPOL ADVOCATES "DRUG" DECRIMINALIZATION On Wednesday, June 8, the head of the international police agency Interpol stated his support for decriminalizing drugs. Raymond Kendall, secretary general of the International Criminal Police Organisation, responded to the British police's call to decriminalize drugs by saying, "I think we should accept the reality of the situation x that there are many, many drug users who are living in a situation of illegality already." Kendall's comment touched on one of the main arguments for ending Marijuana Prohibition, namely that prohibition is not preventing or dissuading people from consuming cannabis. Kendall also acknowledged that most British cannabis consumers are not even being dealt with by the law, probably because (1) most consumers go undetected by the law, and (2) many who are actually caught by the police are not arrested. This comment touches on two more NORML tenets: (1) It is simply impossible to arrest and incarcerate every marijuana consumer, and (2) marijuana's illegality is causing widespread disrespect for the law and makes the police the citizens' enemies. Many supporters of Marijuana Prohibition repeatedly insist that marijuana "legalization" will encourage people to use the drug. The truth is that millions are already consuming cannabis in complete disregard for the law. - U.S. SUPREME COURT FINDS MARIJUANA "TAX" UNCONSTITUTIONAL On Monday, June 6, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states cannot exact a tax on drugs from someone convicted of drug possession. The case involved a family in Montana whose ranch was raided in 1987. In addition to the convictions of six family members, the state imposed an $800,000 tax ($100 per ounce on all the marijuana found). At least 22 states have been imposing "taxes" on individuals arrested for possessing marijuana. The 5-4 decision stated that such a tax violates the 5th Amendment protection against double jeopardy. The opinion stated: - "x a tax is not immune from double jeopardy scrutiny simply because it is a tax." - "While taxes are usually motivated by revenue-raising rather than punitive purposes, Montana's tax departs from normal revenue laws. x it purports to be a property tax, yet it is levied on goods-here, the destroyed marijuana plants-that the taxpayer neither owns nor possesses." [To obtain a copy of Department of Revenue of Montana v. Kurth Ranch, et al., call the U.S. Supreme Court at 202-479-3211 and ask for docket number 93-144.] - NORML GETS ADVANCE COPY OF SUNDAY'S PARADE MAGAZINE The cover story of the Sunday, June 12 issue of Parade magazine is entitled "Should Marijuana Be Legal?" NORML recommends that the media consider the following points when reading the story: - Although the article purports to discuss the "legalization" issue, more than 90% of the article reviews the arguments for and against legalizing medical access to marijuana only. - The article fails to mention that there are about 300,000 arrests on marijuana charges every year. Additionally, it neglects to cover other horrors resulting from Marijuana Prohibition: mandatory minimum prison sentences, property forfeiture, widespread urine testing, etc. - Only one possible model for marijuana "legalization" is discussed-that of alcohol. Most opponents of Marijuana Prohibition do not advocate that type of mass-market commercialization. - The only people interviewed in the article who claimed that marijuana is not medicine are Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials. Why would a reporter ask a police agency to comment on a drug's medical utility? NORML believes these decisions should be left to doctors. Other items to look out for include: - The article reads in part: "A person who smokes one marijuana cigarette still has detectable residue in his or her body up to five days later." Actually, marijuana metabolites linger in the body's fat cells for up to 45 days, but these metabolites are neither psychoactive nor toxic. - Dr. Harmon Eyre, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, was quoted as saying, "In my own practice, there were occasions when marijuana was helpful. I never suggested or advised that patients use marijuana." Dr. Eyre is one of a majority of oncologists who state that marijuana helps their patients, yet they cannot prescribe the drug because of its illegality. - Robert Bonner, a former DEA official, was quoted as saying, "The data supporting medical use are almost entirely anecdotal." This is exactly the point. "Anecdotal evidence" means that thousands of patients are saying, "This medicine helps my condition. Please don't arrest me." They are being arrested anyway. - Dr. Michael Baden, director of forensic sciences for the New York State Police and former chief medical examiner of New York City, was quoted as saying, "We don't see overdoses of marijuana. We do see unnatural deaths associated with vehicular accidents, drownings and fires-accidents resulting from marijuana-induced loss of perception, sensory distortion, impaired reflex reaction." No one is arguing that it should be legal to use marijuana and drive. The question is this: Should the laws be such that an adult should go to prison for consuming marijuana at home? -- end --
