'Telling Kids to Not Smoke Pot Is Not a Partisan Attack,' Ambrose Says

OTTAWA - Federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose blames Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau after doctors groups declined to participate in a government anti-marijuana campaign.

Speaking at a meeting of the Canadian Medical Association, Ambrose accused Trudeau of "politicizing" the debate over marijuana and said that shouldn't take away from the importance of the government's message.

"Telling kids to not smoke pot is not a partisan attack on Justin Trudeau by Health Canada," Ambrose said. "It is a sound public health policy backed by science - whether it's legal or illegal, the health risks remain the same."

14 Ireland: Column: Legalising Drugs Is The Only Way To Win ThisFri, 15 Aug 2014

THREE years ago, the UN Global Commission on Drug Policy announced that the world had lost the long war against illegal drugs. Its 22 eminent members concluded that there remained only one feasible response: legalise the trade.

The evidence they had studied was overwhelming. The fight had resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives in turf wars and in ever-increasing power and wealth for the criminal syndicates. Tens of millions were incarcerated, often in prisons where dangerous drugs were as easily available as on the outside.

15US WI: Drug Choice, Not Race, Fuels Disparities In Drug CourtsSun, 17 Aug 2014

In 2002, 27 people died of heroin overdoses in Wisconsin. A decade later, the toll skyrocketed to 187 deaths.

Heroin has quickly become the most visible drug on the radar for those who work with addicts and in the state's criminal-justice system. Experts say it is the emergence of this drug that partially accounts for the racial disparities in Wisconsin's drug courts.

"When I look at the racial numbers from 2009 to today, the proportion of African-Americans has gone down as the proportion of heroin addicts has gone up," said Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Ellen Brostrom, who runs that county's drug court.

Julie Falco was active in lobbying Illinois to legalize medical marijuana, a drug she credits with "saving my life" since she started eating pot brownies to treat to multiple sclerosis 10 years ago.

Yet now that the state has enacted a medicinal cannabis law and just this month began distributing applications for would-be patients, the Chicago woman is still deciding whether to go through that process or simply continue to use the drug outside of the new legal channel.

She's particularly concerned about having to submit her fingerprints to the state - Illinois is the only state that requires that of medical marijuana applicants - along with documentation of her Social Security disability insurance, proof of age and residency and a recent photo.

Despite the efforts of area educators, law enforcement and medical personnel, the death toll from drugs continues to climb in Tippecanoe County as area residents succumb in increasing numbers to the suffocating grip of addiction.

Accidental drug overdoses killed more people here last year than in any of the previous 20 years, according to the findings of a report compiled by Deputy Coroner Matt Wietbrock. And Coroner Donna Avolt said a preliminary review of this year's deaths suggests the region is on pace to tie 2013's unprecedented high.

Ads Have Become 'Political Football,' Three Top Doctors' Groups Say

Three leading doctors' groups will not participate in a taxpayer-funded advertising campaign against marijuana, saying the ads had become a "political football" in the debate over legal status of the drug.

In a rare joint statement issued Saturday, the Canadian Medical Association, the College of Family Physicians of Canada and Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada said they would decline Health Canada's invitation to endorse a campaign on the dangers of marijuana use by young people. The ad campaign, with an estimated budget of $5 million, would not have directly targeted Liberal leader Justin Trudeau's support for the legalization and regulation of marijuana sales, but comes at the Conservative Party mounts its own increasingly virulent attacks on his pot position.

It's 'Compassion for the Sick' Versus 'Devil in the Details' In Political TV Advertising

A burst of ads coming soon to TV screens in Florida will feature patients and doctors extolling the virtues of marijuana as a compassionate way to treat the sick and ease their pain.

The soft-sell campaign, a laid-back variation on the usual political pitch, is designed to promote a constitutional amendment on November's ballot to legalize medical marijuana.

Countering that message will be a rival set of ads warning that approval of the amendment would lead to widespread drug use, supplied by "pot docs" and "pot shops" at every turn.

Downtown rally. 'Prince of Pot' says U.S. jail term hasn't deterred him from continuing the fight for marijuana legalization

The Prince is officially home.

Marc Emery, B.C.'s infamous "Prince of Pot," was welcomed by hundreds at a downtown rally when he returned to Vancouver Sunday afternoon, vowing to pick up where he left off after serving time on drug-related charges in the United States.

"It's all kind of dreamlike. Vancouver has changed dramatically.... The legalization landscape itself has changed dramatically," he said upon his arrival at the Vancouver International Airport.
