Alaska's marijuana board holds first meeting, wants changes to laws

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

FAIRBANKS—The newly appointed Marijuana Control Board's first meeting ran nearly six meandering hours as its members settled into their new roles, but it produced a list of four proposed changes to Alaska's marijuana laws.

The board, by unanimous vote, signed off on a wish list of statutory changes it wants the Alaska Legislature to change in last year's ballot measure that legalized commercial marijuana. The board met in Fairbanks.

The four issues include allowing cannabis clubs, updating the criminal law, clarifying the difference between a personal grow and an illegal operation, and giving villages the ability to opt out of commercial marijuana sales.

During the campaign, sponsors said communities and villages that didn't want commercial marijuana sales could opt out, but the language used in the initiative is proving to be a problem.

Popular Presidential Candidate Gets A Six Figure Campaign Donation From The Marijuana Industry

The marijuana movement has long fought to be taken seriously by high level politicians. For a very long time elected officials scoffed at marijuana supporters, often making Cheech and Chong jokes and other insensitive, stereotypical comments. There have been a lot of third party Presidential candidates that have courted the marijuana movement in the past, but there has never been a major party candidate running for President that has willingly congregated with an all marijuana-supporting audience. That is, not until recently.

Republican Presidential candidate Rand Paul made history recently when he held a campaign fundraising event as part of the Cannabis Business Summit, put on by the National Cannabis Industry Association in Denver, Colorado. According to people that attended the event, it went very well. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul made a splash in Denver on Tuesday, raising an estimated minimum of $120,000 in a closed-door private fundraising event at the National Cannabis Industry Association’s Cannabis Business Summit.

The total amount raised puts him firmly in the top tier of public officials who have raised campaign funds from the cannabis industry.

There was no immediate word from the Paul campaign on how much was actually raised at the event, and the total could easily top Marijuana Business Daily‘s estimate. Attendees reported about 40 individuals took part in the event, paying a minimum of $2,700 apiece. In addition, the Marijuana Policy Project provided a $15,000 donation.

Indiana's First Church of Cannabis Didn't Really Test Any Boundaries

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

Despite the threats made last week by Indianapolis Police Chief Rick Hite and Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry to raid the inaugural praise and worship service at the First Church of Cannabis, no arrests were made at Wednesday's event, and the overall vibe of the scene was, as one officer told HIGH TIMES, "very quiet."

In the morning hours leading up to the celebration, an army of more than 50 police officers could be seen stationed on every street corner for several city blocks surrounding the church — a presence in which the modest crowd took as a sign that trouble was brewing... And for good reason.

During a recent press conference, city officials said that they would arrest all of those in attendance of the church service for crimes ranging from maintaining a common nuisance to possession of marijuana. In fact, the threat of a legal repercussions forced cannabis church founder Bill Levin, in the eleventh hour, to nix the concept of the congregation smoking out as part of their sacramental debut. Instead, the church said they would challenge the city's threats in civil court.
