Year of legal marijuana nets state $70 million in pot taxes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

SEATTLE (AP) - Washington launched its second-in-the-nation legal marijuana market with just a handful of stores selling high-priced pot to long lines of customers. A year later, the state has about 160 shops open, tax revenues have soared past expectations and sales top $1.4 million per day.

And who knows - the industry might even start making some money.

Washington pot farmers, processors and retailers have complained all year that heavy state and federal tax burdens, along with competition from an unregulated medical marijuana market, have made it difficult for them to do business.

But at least some relief is here: This month, two new laws take effect, one to regulate and tax medical marijuana, and one to cut Washington's three-level excise tax on pot to a single, 37-percent tax.

Despite some industry gripes and those tweaks to Washington's legal pot law, which voters passed in 2012 to legalize marijuana for adults over 21, officials and legalization backers say the state's slow and deliberate effort to regulate marijuana has been a success.

A year after stores opened on July 8, 2014, here's a look at the state of legal weed here.

We look closely at the secretive and violent activities of Missouri’s multi-jurisdictional drug task forces. These task forces make a huge proportion of cannabis arrests in Missouri each year, and also regularly violate the law themselves.

We have used Missouri’s open records law (Sunshine Law) to obtain thousands of documents from hundreds of drug warriors in every corner of the state. They have revealed, on many occasions, that the most zealous proponents of marijuana prohibition have a very hard time following laws themselves. Our open records requests have revealed a very wide array of unscrupulous and unlawful activities, including:

#FreePotPrisoners

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

There exists now an untenable situation whereby U.S. citizens are in jail for engaging in actions that are currently legal and regulated in some parts of this country. It can not be denied that these people broke the law as it stood at the time and place of their transgressions, but it is also apparent that our nation is in the process of redefining its relationship with marijuana. America has yet to address the contradictions that exist between its past and present reasoning, and there are thousands separated from their loved ones, confined to penal institutions, awaiting this clarification.

Let Freedom ring for these long-suffering casualties of the War on Marijuana. Sign today!
