All forms of medical marijuana are legal, Canadian court rules

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana patients in Canada can legally use all forms of the drug, the Canadian Supreme Court has ruled.

Medical marijuana patients will now be able to consume marijuana, not only smoke it.

Cannabis oil is now permitted instead of only "dried" marijuana, meaning people can bake it into food products.

The case began in 2009 when a baker from the Cannabis Buyers Club of Canada was charged with trafficking and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Former head baker of the club Owen Smith was caught baking 200 pot cookies, CBC reports.

A British Columbia judge acquitted Mr Smith and gave Canada's government a year to change laws around extracting marijuana. The case then wound up in the Supreme Court.

Restricting people to dried marijuana for medical purposes has been declared "null and void" by the court.

New York Medical Marijuana Program Brings In $3 Million From Application Process

Today state officials in New York will close the application process to open a dispensary.

According to numbers from the New York Post, the state has already brought in $3 million from the selection process by charging 300 perspective dispensary owners $10,000 a pop to file their bid to attain one of the five permits being distributed in the state.

These permits would allow their holder to open four dispensaries, and 20 dispensaries in total would be allowed to open in a state with a population of 19.75 million. The idea of one dispensary per 1 million residents does not really float with any goals for there to be ease of access, but with how limited the conditions list is, it shouldn’t be much of an issue as dispensing kicks off in 2016. However, patients upstate are worried about the travel times that would be required to access their medicine.

Lightly processed flowers, as in trimmed, dried, and cured, will not be available to New York patients. This is due to the ban on smoking medical cannabis — only oils, edibles, and vapable products will be for sale.

Not everyone in New York is happy with how the state’s regulations turned out. State Assembly Leader Richard Gottfried told a Drug Policy Alliance event, “Last June, we were about to pass in both houses and the Governor calls me and Diane Savino down to his office and says ‘This is how we’ve got to change it.’ Maybe we should have told him to stuff it and passed it how it was and had him veto it, but we decided to bargain with him. We got a lot of really bad changes into the legislation and when they came out with the regulations they were even worse.”

Hopefully after the kinks are worked out in the distribution process, New York’s medical cannabis program will redevelop into something a bit more inclusive. Right now, lots of folks will be left out of the loop when it comes to using cannabis as effective medicine.



State Agency Report: California Could Benefit from Legalized Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

If California legalizes a recreational cannabis industry in 2016, the state could be in a position to save nearly half a billion dollars through law enforcement reductions and tax revenue, according to a new report.

Last week, the state’s Legislative Analysis Office (LAO), which is an unbiased agency charged with researching potential scenarios for proposed laws, published a breakdown of its fiscal effect if voters were to approve the California Craft Cannabis Initiative in the next presidential election.

The proposal, which is far from being the best bet for winning the support of millions of dollars in contributions currently waiting to be thrown at a viable campaign, was utilized for the sake of the analysis because it was one of the first initiatives to be authorized by the state.

In the report, the LAO determined that the legalization of marijuana could save both state and local governments substantial resources by reducing the number of people incarcerated as the result of pot offenses, providing savings reaching into the “tens of millions of dollars,” with a realistic potential for surpassing $100 million per year.
