The Frontlines Of Cannabis Regulations

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

It’s been over two years since recreational marijuana dispensaries first opened their doors in Colorado, but the regulatory environment around cannabis is still evolving. Dispensaries have been given the responsibility to stay informed of the latest in cannabis regulations, to keep their customers safe and their sales legal-but it isn’t always easy. Maureen McNamara, owner and founder of Cannabis Trainers, has made it her business to help them do it.

The cornerstone of McNamara’s business, Sell-SMaRT, is a training class tailored for cannabis store employees. The class was the first of its kind to be certified as a Responsible Vendor Program in Colorado, a voluntary program designed especially for marijuana dispensary owners and staffs. McNamara focuses especially on training budtenders-the women and men behind the counter who engage directly with consumers. That’s because budtenders, as she sees it, are on the front lines of the state’s still-new cannabis industry and more visible than most. “When cannabis is sold compliantly and safely, it shows the world that this can be done,” McNamara expressed. “If the budtenders and sellers are inspired to sell smart, to sell safely, they can really impact changing the way the world sees cannabis.”

For The First Time, More Republicans Now Favor Legalization Than Oppose It

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, July, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

YouGov recently released a new poll that indicates that more Republicans support marijuana legalization than oppose it.

Peter Moore, a pollster for YouGov, said in a statement:

YouGov’s latest research shows that most Americans still support legalization of marijuana, and that support for legalization has increased slightly, from 52 percent in December 2015 to 55 percent today. Most of this change is a result of changing attitudes among Republicans. In fact, for the first time, Republicans narrowly tend to support legalization, 45 percent to 42 percent.

However, while the trend for Republicans has improved over recent years, surveys also indicate that Democrats and Independents are still more likely to support legalization. Democrats back legalization 63-25, Independents 55-33, and Republicans 45-42, according to the survey of nearly 1,000 US adults.

In an effort to defeat Florida’s medical marijuana ballot initiative, the Drug Free Florida Committee has ramped up its fundraising, reportedly raising $805,000 between July 9 and July 15. The bulk of this money came from one contributor—the family that founded beloved supermarket chain Publix.

According to a recently filed financial disclosure, the Carol Jenkins Barnett Family Trust donated $800,000 to Drug Free Florida, a group opposed to Amendment 2, which would allow doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis for certain debilitating illnesses.
