Nebraska Lawmaker Justin Wayne Pushes for Reform of Drug Laws

A Nebraska lawmaker is pushing for a change in the state’s drug laws that he says are outdated, according to a report in the Lincoln Journal Star. Sen. Justin Wayne of Omaha has introduced two bills that would adjust penalties for some drug possession and distribution offenses. At a meeting of the legislature’s Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Wayne said current laws were putting people who were not involved in the distribution of drugs in prison for trafficking and creating overcrowding in state prisons and county jails.

The first measure, LB89, was introduced by Wayne in January and would reduce penalties for possession of marijuana and possession with intent to deliver. Wayne told his colleagues on the committee that the state’s current laws are resulting in defendants being sentenced unfairly.

“We have arbitrary numbers in the marijuana statutes that presume a person is a distributor,” Wayne said. “Our law needs to be nuanced because if not … we are prosecuting people who simply may have a habit, although illegal, but are not considered drug manufacturers or distributors.”

Pennsylvania Town Decriminalizes Marijuana, Sees Future in Legal Pot

Civic leaders in the borough of Steelton, Pennsylvania unanimously passed an ordinance to decriminalize possession of small quantities of marijuana on Tuesday evening. At a special meeting called to considerer the proposal, members of the borough council voted 5-0 to remove criminal penalties for first-time offenders possessing less than 30 grams of cannabis. Simple possession will instead be charged as a summary offense and be subject to a fine of $25 to $100.

Brian Proctor, the president of the borough council, said in a press release that the town was actively pursuing cannabis reform.

“Steelton Borough Council recognizes the changes in attitudes towards marijuana nationally, at the state level, and locally, and strives to be at the forefront of progressive marijuana policy,” said Proctor. “We believe policy needs to change with the times. That includes taking a new look at marijuana, its potential to benefit our community, and realigning criminal justice policy to appropriately fit marijuana-related crimes.”

Borough Manager Doug Brown said that decriminalization is just one aspect of the community’s new approach to pot.

Ontario will get its first ever legal cannabis patio this summer

For the first time ever in Ontario, a legal cannabis “consumption” patio will be open to the public this summer.

The Ontario Craft Beer Festival announced Tuesday that it will be collaborating with HotBox Cafe, a cannabis establishment in Toronto’s Kensington Market that opened in 2003, to open a cannabis patio, called POTio, at the festival, happening June 21-23 at Ontario Place.

“What better way to optimize on a sensory experience than by adding some cannabis to the mix,” said Craft Beer Festival founder Tony Millar.

Even though cannabis has been legal in Canada since October last year, smoking or vaping the drug on a restaurant or bar’s patio is still illegal as cannabis has been placed under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act.

Even an advertisement of cannabis at a festival got the cannabis company Tweed into trouble when they advertised at the music festival Field Trip in Toronto during the summer of 2018, with Health Canada warning company of a $5 million fine for doing so.

But now that legalization is setting in and the first cannabis retail stores …
