Colorado Continues to Put Cannabis Taxes to Good Use

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado continues to put cannabis taxes to good use, as funds are currently being used to build safe housing for homeless people with mental health issues, addictions, survivors of domestic violence and the disabled. Governor John Hickenlooper said the funds going into supportive housing for those in need ultimately save the state millions in future hospital and incarceration costs.

CANNABIS TAXES FOR SOCIAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

Touring a housing development in Denver being built on land donated by St. John’s Cathedral, Governor Hickenlooper reminded taxpayers that 40 percent of the homeless in Colorado actually have jobs but many were dealt a bad hand.

“That’s not the American dream, if you’re out there working 40 hours a week and still can’t afford an apartment,” he said. “This effort is looking at the other end of the spectrum; the chronically homeless, people who’ve had real challenges in their life and need the supportive services that this facility is going to provide.”

According to Supervisor Jeff Sheehy, who introduced an ordinance with proposed regulations at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, city officials still have no idea what that program will look like or how it will operate.

Is This a New Surprising Side-Effect of Medical Marijuana?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

A recent report claims that an unintentional, surprising side-effect of medical marijuana has emerged: the likeliness that more people will make Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims. But while the study, which was conducted by researchers at Temple University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Cincinnati, posits their theory on figures provided by data from the 1990 to 2013 Current Population Survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, are the reasons behind this correlation as definitive?

MMJ AND SSDI: FACTS AND FIGURES

According to the report—which is categorized as a “working paper,” or one in its preliminary stages—states where MMJ is legalized experienced a 9.9 percent increase in SSDI claims, as well as a 2.6 percent increase in SSDI benefits.
