Local Legislators Split as Marijuana Vote Inches Closer

first_imgBut last week Gov. Phil Murphy announced that his administration’s medical marijuana program was stronger than ever, with approximately 25,500 patients, nearly 1,000 caregivers and 412 doctors added to the program since Murphy took office. The tax rate and the transparency of the use of those tax revenues, he believes, also needs to be settled. According to the Murphy administration, the top five medical conditions among patients who have qualified for the program are chronic pain due to musculoskeletal disorders, anxiety, intractable skeletal spasticity, PTSD and severe chronic pain due to cancer or HIV. “I don’t think it has the votes right now. I really have my doubts,” O’Scanlon said. “The bill definitely is not done yet, it needs considerably more work. If we’re going to do this, we need to definitively answer the concerns of residents.” All of these actions followed the lead of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, which passed a resolution of its own in January 2018 noting its staunch opposition to any attempt by New Jersey to legalize marijuana. “The biggest thing for me is that the bill respects the wishes of the municipality,” Gopal said. “If your municipality passes a resolution stating we don’t want this in our town, the state needs to respect that, and this bill does just that.” “I met someone last month who was arrested 15 years ago for a single bag of marijuana and he’s still having trouble getting a job because that charge is on his record. That isn’t right,” Gopal said. Red Bank is the only Two River town that has indicated it is open to considering marijuana within municipal lines, and would welcome a medical marijuana facility under the New Jersey Compassionate Use Marijuana Act. The Borough of Highlands was the most recent town to take a stance on the matter, voting to ban dispensaries of any kind from its downtown business district with a unanimous decision at its Feb. 20 council meeting. Colts Neck, Rumson, Oceanport and Shrewsbury have also banned marijuana sales in both recreational and medical forms. Middletown acted similarly in February 2018 when it introduced a law that prohibited businesses from growing, producing and selling recreational marijuana, but included “minimal use conditions” for a medical facility. But the township has not yet taken any formal action. On the contrary, Gopal’s biggest fear about the potential passage of this bill is the adverse impact it could have on New Jersey’s medical marijuana program. Fair Haven said “no” to recreational sales, but left some room for a medical dispensary should an application ever come before the planning and zoning boards. According to the governor’s office, there are now more than 42,500 patients, upward of 1,700 caregivers and a total of 925 doctors participating in the program. Gopal said the biggest advancement is the bill’s “expungement piece,” which would have marijuana charges removed from the records of nonviolent criminals. Gopal said he was pleased with the structure of the bill, especially for the protections it provides municipalities who have passed or will pass a law banning recreational and/or medical dispensaries. “I am proud that New Jersey now has a medical marijuana program that is compassionate and is meeting the needs of more and more patients,” Murphy said in a media release. “Today, thousands of residents living with anxiety, migraines, Tourette’s syndrome, and chronic pain, among other conditions, have increased access to medical marijuana when just one year ago many could not get the treatment they needed.” Other reforms made to the program over the past year include the selection of six businesses who may now apply for permits to open new medical dispensaries around the state, as well as enhanced mobile access for patients, caregivers and physicians to access resources, upload documents and make payments on their smart devices like cellphones and tablets. An expansion of available products, including oils and pre-filled vaporizer cartridges, has also been authorized. O’Scanlon said the bill still needs to appropriately address children’s access to marijuana, as well as those who are stopped by authorities while driving under the influence. “We don’t really know what the effects will be, but the concern is, once recreational becomes law, medical may have trouble surviving,” he added. The state legislature is on the brink of this historic vote after the bill was approved by two legislative committees Monday, though local state Sens. Vin Gopal (D-11) and Declan O’Scanlon (R-13) are split on whether it has enough support pass. “The tax rate needs to be low enough in order to break the back of the black market dealers. If you don’t do that it’s not worth moving forward with legalization. And every penny of the money that is generated must be accounted for and needs to be committed to enhancing safety measures and drug recognition training in our municipalities,” O’Scanlon added. A vote expected to come as early as March 25 could be a case of “light up” or “lights out” for a landmark bill that aims to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use across the state of New Jersey. If the bill does not pass, it could set the legalization effort back months. Previously, only individuals suffering from chronic pain via opioid-use disorder qualified for the program. Several Two River-area towns have already taken that step.last_img read more

GoL, UNFPA Sign 2021 Census Document

first_imgGiven the cost of the 2021 Census, the government has adopted a unique financial management system, whereby all funds are lodged in a “Census Basket Fund” at a local bank and managed by UNFPA.The Government of Liberia (GoL), through the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, officially signed a document for the 2021 National Population and Housing Census (NPHC) Project.LISGIS Director Francis Fonanyeneh Wreh said that the document for the Project will be the first census in the country to use digital technology at all phases of preparation, geographic planning, census-taking, data management, processing as well as tabulation, publication, archiving and dissemination.According to him, the pending census, which costs US$18.9 million, has experienced some significant delays due to “untimely and inadequate funding.”“This is one major reason why the international ten-year periodicity of census-taking, as enshrined in the United Nations principles and Recommendations, was slightly exceeded; notwithstanding, we are still operating within the 2020 Round of Population and Housing Censuses (2015-2024),” he said.“LISGIS, in collaboration with and support from UNFPA, has developed the Census Project document, which will serve as a source for support and resource mobilization for all processes of the 2021 Census undertaking.”He said that the estimated cost of the 2021 exercise is US$18.9 million, and has, therefore, appealed to the country’s development partners to support the project by making available tools for development policy-making, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development programming.UNFPA Resident Representative, Dr. Bannet Ndyanabangi, described yesterday’s signing ceremony as a defining moment that signals the official start of the census program.UNFPA, as part of the UN country team in Liberia, has realigned its development assistance with the government’s development plan in a period of peace and security consolidation, as well as strengthening democratic governance towards attaining sustainable development.Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Samuel Tweah, said that the government budgeted US$6 million for the census process, but currently has US$3 million, adding that the government is working to get the balance money.Tweah described the census exercise as “critical for national development, and therefore the government needs to empower LISGIS to have an updated data in the interest of the country.”He added: “The government is grateful to achieve such a milestone, by signing the project, though it is belated; it is good because it has to deliver the ultimate census, which will be the best census in the history of Liberia since it is a digital census.”Given the cost of the 2021 Census, the government has adopted a unique financial management system, whereby all funds are lodged in a “Census Basket Fund” at a local bank and managed by UNFPA.The Liberian government and the Embassy of Sweden have, meanwhile, made initial contributions, while there is a commitment from the Irish Embassy, the World Bank, UNDP, UN Women and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

BC Hockey announces full face masks mandatory for Junior B players next year

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – BC Hockey announced Tuesday that full face protection will be required for all Junior B players starting next season.This includes the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, Pacific Junior Hockey League and the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League as well as the Fort St. John Huskies and Dawson Creek Canucks.“We have been talking about it for a year and a half,” said BC Hockey Chief Executive Officer, Barry Petrachenko. It felt like the right time as parents, players and hockey are ready for it.” He added, “I have been in touch with my colleague at Alberta Hockey as they are in the same boat, but at this time they have yet to make the same steps that we made today. It’s a process that we will continue to work at to ensure the best outcome for our players in Junior B hockey in B.C.”- Advertisement -In terms of dental or eye coverage for players, Junior B teams will see a 71 percent reduction in major medical and dental premiums under the Hockey Canada Insurance Program down from $45 dollars to $10 per year with the move to full face protection.It comes down to insurance,” added General Manager Jeremy Clothier. “Hockey governing bodies pays out huge dollars for insurance for teeth, eyes, etc every year. This should lower that.”Currently, around five percent of Junior A players competing in the BC Hockey League wear full face protection.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL MANAGER Jim McGuinness has defended referees over their inconsistency after meeting one of them recently.McGuinness wanted to know why Fermanagh man Martin Higgins had been so “overly sensitive” during the recent league game between Donegal and Laois; the same fixture as this Sunday as the Division Two final at Croke Park. Higgins awarded 28 frees in the first half.“I left the conversation (with Higgins) feeling sorry for the referees,” said McGuinness in today’s Irish Times. “They are under phenomenal pressure. We had the same referee the day we played Meath and my understanding is he got a very, very hard assessment by the assessor. He tried to rectify that the following day and I understand he got a very hard assessment again since that.“There are 26 or 28 referees in a panel and there are 16 of them that will be refereeing in the championship so there are at least 10 who are not going to make the panel so that is pressure first of all.“I was also informed there is a panel of assessors and not all the assessors get to assess in the championship so they have to pick every single technicality out for their points to be high so you are in a position where referees and assessors are fighting for stripes.”McGuinness told the newspaper that managers needed guidance. “I think the GAA should come out and be more transparent with the referees and the assessors. I would say it is not the referees’ fault. They are under phenomenal pressure to make the cut for the All-Ireland series.“In my estimation, the referee is the talking point 70 per cent of the time coming out of the game now because of fussy fouls, wild technical fouls, one foot here, one foot there. It drives supporters, managers and players crazy and there is nothing majorly wrong with the game only it has become really, really technical now which is damaging to the fluency of the game.”McGuinness said GAA was copying English soccer – and this needed to stop.“We have got a cultural identity in this country and these are our indigenous games. We don’t need yellow cards. If you put your foot over the line in a game of soccer the last couple of years they are pulling it up. All of a sudden now in Ireland it is the same thing. We had a fella booked for diving, our full back who if you knew him you would know he wouldn’t do that. That is your full back in the first 10 minutes so there are a lot of things going on that are not reflective of our indigenous sport.”McGuinness confirmed intercounty managers, unlike their rugby counterparts, are not permitted to speak with referees before a game to ascertain what the referee will not tolerate. “There is a wee bit of an ‘us against them’ situation but let’s try and get it right by working together. It’s about respect,” he tells the Irish Times.NATIONAL LEAGUE DIVISION 2 FINAL: McGUINNESS DEFENDS REFEREES was last modified: April 21st, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
