Pioneer Pot States Have Collected More Than $200 Million In Marijuana Taxes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

The first two states to legalize recreational marijuana have collectively raked in at least $200 million in marijuana tax revenue, according to the latest tax data -- and they're putting those dollars to good use.

In Colorado, after about a year and a half of legal recreational marijuana sales, the state has collected more than $117 million in excise taxes from both the recreational and medical marijuana markets, according to the most recent data from the Colorado Department of Revenue. 

Washington state got a slower start. Its retail shops didn't begin selling recreational marijuana until July of last year, but they are keeping pace with Colorado's. About $83 million in excise taxes have already been collected in the year since sales first began, according to the most recent tax data from the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board.

Marijuana Farmers VS Hemp Farmers Over Pollen

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

federal farm bill hemp amendment researchComplaints from legal marijuana farms have halted the issuance of hemp farming licenses in Oregon- for now.

Both types of farms are authorized under Oregon law. Marijuana, used for medicine and recreation, and hemp, used for industrial and commercial purposes, are plants in the same family. That means they can cross-breed.

The Oregonian reports that marijuana farmers are concerned that the hemp plants will spread their pollen over wide swaths of countryside and accidentally pollinate their marijuana plants. Cannabis plants are genetically selected to produce robust flowers typically grown in the absence of male plants.

No males, no seeds. Marijuana flowers without seeds, generically called sensimilla, are the most cost-effective and prized of the cannabis flower products. Plants that put energy into growing seeds produce smaller flowers, which reduce their market value. Fields that are accidentally pollinated could cost growers thousands of dollars on every acre from low yields.

Marijuana farmers successfully argued to the state government that an unchecked expansion of hemp farming could lead to trouble. They propose that hemp farming be banned in the entire southern portion of Oregon- the area most known for producing an outstanding marijuana crop- or at least kept away from the three most prosperous counties for cannabis production.

Existing hemp farmers can continue to plow their fields. The ban is on new licensees, and it looks like the issue won’t be settled until 2017, per the Oregonian.

DC’s Attorney General Supports the Decriminalization of All Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

While the District of Columbia continues to wage war against the scourge of synthetic marijuana, one of the city’s leading administrators has suggested that the legalization of drugs like cocaine and heroin, in a manner similar to what the city has done with marijuana, might be in the best interest of the community.

Earlier last week, D.C Attorney General Karl Racine appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to discuss some of the issues the District has encountered due to the sale of dangerous synthetic cannabinoids called Spice and K2. 

During the segment, a caller from Illinois chimed in, arguing that one of the primary reasons this ghastly alternative high even exists is the continued prohibition on all drugs.

The caller said that the criminalization of all drugs is a “civil liberties issue, and when people want to consume substances that alter their state of consciousness they should be allowed to. Now, if you didn’t have such a crackdown on drugs like marijuana, cocaine and heroin, there wouldn’t even be a market for synthetic drugs.”

It was apparent throughout the caller’s opinionated spiel that Racine did not totally disagree with his argument. His basic accord on the issue was later confirmed in his response.
