California Governor Signs Bill To End Medical Marijuana Deadline

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, February, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

california governor jerry brown marijuanaGovernor Jerry Brown has signed AB 21, an urgency measure introduced by Rep. Jim Wood that repeals a March 1 deadline in the new state medical marijuana law that some have interpreted as requiring local jurisdictions to ban or regulate medical marijuana cultivation, or lose their licensing authority.

Now that the March 1 deadline is repealed, Cal NORML is calling for all jurisdictions that are considering banning medical marijuana activities to instead table the issue, and for all cities and counties to work towards land use regulations to protect patients rights, as well as public safety and the environment. ”Driving marijuana cultivation and delivery back underground will only lead to crime and neighborhood problems,” said Ellen Komp, Deputy Director of Cal NORML. ”Local officials have been calling for statewide regulation, and now that MMRSA is in place, it’s time to allow that regulation to work.”

“Thanks to Assemblyman Wood and Gov. Brown for clearing up this confusion and giving local governments time to develop thoughtful policies for regulation,” said Cal NORML director Dale Gieringer.

The state agencies charged with regulating commercial medical marijuana activities in the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) aren’t expected to issue permit applications until at least January 1, 2018, and state licenses will only be granted to those with local approval. However, a “drafting error” in MMRSA stated that cities and counties without medical marijuana ordinances on the books by March 1, 2016 would be governed by state law.

Facebook Shuts Down Medical Marijuana Pages in New Jersey

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Three of New Jersey's five medical marijuana dispensaries have had their business pages shutdown by Facebook, cutting off what advocates call an integral place for customers to learn about which plant strains best treat their illness and where to find discounts.

Compassionate Sciences in Bellmawr, Garden State in Woodbridge, and Breakwater Treatment and Wellness in Cranbury had their pages shut down this week.

Facebook's advertising policy bans promotion of selling drugs - as well as tobacco and guns - and the medical marijuana pages weren't spared even though they have been legally allowed to operate in New Jersey since 2011.

The shutdowns reflect similar measures taken by the social media giant in other parts of the country. At one point last year, Facebook took down the page for the Harborside Health Center, a dispensary in Oakland, California, although the page is now up and running.

The largest drug bust in Fishers' history occurred outside of a Wal-Mart Supercenter on Tuesday.

Five hundred pounds of marijuana was seized by the Fishers Police Department around 4 a.m., police said. They found the drugs in a semitractor-trailer parked outside of the store in the 8300 block of East 96th Street.

Authorities reported suspicious activity when two men were found in the semitractor waiting to "make a delivery," police said. Drug-sniffing dogs were called to the scene. Police found drugs in the trailer during a search, police said.

Two men, a driver and a passenger, were detained. Investigators were told only the driver knew about the marijuana. The passenger was released.
