Hawaii says its 1st state to go cashless for marijuana sales

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

HONOLULU — Hawaii said Tuesday that it will be the first state to require marijuana sales to be handled without cash, saying it wanted to avoid robberies and other crimes targeting dispensaries.

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii won’t be allowed to accept cash beginning Oct. 1 and will require people to use a debit payment app instead. The app is already an option for marijuana transactions in six states, including California and Colorado.

Many marijuana businesses use cash because banks fear pot money could expose them to legal trouble from the U.S. government, which regulates banking and still bans marijuana.

California Says No Marijuana Deliveries Via Drones

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

There was a lot of hope that California’s fully legal marijuana industry would give way to new tech services, allowing packages of marijuana to be delivered to the doorsteps of the stoner community by way of autonomous vehicles, but new regulations created last week by the state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control puts the kibosh on this novel concept—prohibiting toker transport via drones, self-driving cars or other vehicles not directly operated by a human.

“Transportation may not be done by aircraft, watercraft, rail, drones, human-powered vehicles, or unmanned vehicles,” the emergency regulations read, reports “alpha geek” publication Ars Technica.

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts’ newly-formed regulatory board for marijuana is scheduled to meet for the first time on Tuesday. The chairman of the Cannabis Control Commission, 64-year-old Lincoln resident and former business executive Steven Hoffman, sat down with The Associated Press shortly after his appointment to talk about the challenges the commission faces in meeting timetables set out in the law that legalized adult recreational marijuana use, and some of his own reasons for accepting the post.

Responses have been edited for clarity and brevity.


Q: Given the setbacks and delays the state experienced with its medical marijuana program, is it reasonable for the public to be skeptical about meeting deadlines for implementing recreational marijuana?

A: We’re committed, we’re energized, we’re excited to get started. But until we start delivering and giving people confidence that we are going to deliver on time, I think all of that skepticism is appropriate.
