North Carolina Lawmakers Pass Welfare Drug Testing Bill

July 30th

By | The Daily Chronic - The Voice of the Reform Generation

RALEIGH, NC – A bill that would require public benefits recipients to take a drug test upon suspicion they are using drugs passed won final approval in the North Carolina legislature late last week and now heads for the governor’s desk. The bill had passed both houses of the legislature earlier this month, but had to win a concurrence vote in the Senate after the House amended it.

Last Thursday, the Senate gave final approval to the bill, passing it 32-4 without debate. That despite concerns raised in the House that it would push drug users away without encouraging them to get help.

The bill, House Bill 392, requires participants in the state’s Work First program, which offers cash benefits, training, and support services to families, to submit to drug testing if authorities have a reasonable suspicion they are on drugs.

The bill also requires stringent background checks to ensure that recipients are not probation or parole violators or have outstanding felony warrants.

Republican senators amended the bill to make it more palatable by i. . . . . READ MORE

Missouri Rep. to Introduce Marijuana Decriminalization, Legalization Bills

July 29th

By | The Daily Chronic - The Voice of the Reform Generation

JEFFERSON CITY, MO — Missouri State Rep. Rory Ellinger hopes to bring marijuana reform to the state, and plans on introducing marijuana decriminalization and legalization bills once the legislature reconvenes for the 2014 session.

Rep. Ellinger (D-University City) introduced a marijuana decriminalization measure, House Bill 512, in 2013. While the bill didn’t pass, it did advance further than any marijuana reform bill introduced to the state legislature in the past.

Testimony on the decriminalization was heard by the Downsizing State Government Committee on the final day of the legislative session in May, without any possibility that the full House of Representatives would vote on the bill, but activists considered the hearing a step in the right direction.

“Receiving a hearing lends greater credibility to the bill and will likely make more legislators receptive to the idea next year,” says John Payne of Missouri’s Show Me Cannabis.  “Political progress often feels almost interminably slow, but make no mistake, we are moving steadily forward.”
