Recreational Marijuana Prices Plunge In Washington State

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, April, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana washington state felony drug possessionWhen legal marijuana went on sale in Washington last summer, the prices were astronomically high. There was not enough supply to go around, there was a lot of hype in the air because marijuana was going to be sold legally for recreational purposes for the first time on the West Coast, and marijuana stores took advantage of the situation. People were paying $100+ for an eighth of marijuana. My how things have changed since then.

The average price for recreational marijuana in Washington has fallen to $12 per gram. With reports that there is a surplus of over 46,000 pounds of recreational marijuana in Washington State right now, I’d expect that number to stay the same, or drop even further. Per The Joint Blog:

The price of legal recreational cannabis has dropped significantly in recent months in Washington, according to new data released by the state’s Liquor Control Board.

According to the Board, the average price of recreational cannabis throughout the state is $12 a gram. When sales began in July, average prices were near $30 a gram.

The prices in Washington State are still too high. Even with prices falling over 50%, the prices are still more than twice as high as they are on the black market. The black market will never be eliminated at that rate. With that being said, a lot of stores in Washington are barely scrapping by because they have lowered their prices as much as they can, but due to Washington State taxes and federal 280e provisions, there’s not much left for store owners after all is said and done. Washington needs to revamp the marijuana tax structure, and the feds need to reform 280e provisions, if the marijuana industry is ever going to reach its full potential in Washington.

Bill Maher: “Make 4/20 a National Holiday”

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

Bill Maher is as outspoken as marijuana celebrities turned activists come. The HBO pundit once again took to his pedestal to preach pot–and that he did.

On Friday night’s episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher read viewer “‘Twas the Night Before 4/20″, his way of urging congress to get with the high times and make 4/20 a National Weed Day:

Moreover, Maher took to Change.org and started a petition to turn 4/20 into an official, national holiday. And its a mission we can all take to heart and stand behind:

Hi, America.  It’s me, Bill Maher, from Real Time with Bill Maher – here for my very first time on Change.org.  Well, the first time since I signed the petition to bring back “The Gilmore Girls.”

Now that marijuana is legal in one form or another in 24 states and counting, I’m here to urge you to sign my petition to make 4/20 a national holiday.

We celebrate everything from Arbor Day to Groundhog Day to a National Day of Prayer.  It’s high time we had a weed day.

Because if we can set days aside to pay tribute to trees, a rodent or a space ghost, we can certainly designate one day to officially recognize a true American institution.

Sign my petition and make 4/20 a national holiday.

Cause it’s not like any consumer or stoner goes to work or gets anything done besides celebrating our freedom on this great, great day.

Medical Marijuana Activist in Kansas Could Face Charges

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A medical marijuana advocate has lost custody of her 11-year-old son at least temporarily and could face possible charges following comments the boy made during a drug education program at school.
 
The case of Shona Banda, 37, was forwarded Monday to the Finney County district attorney's office for a decision about charges, Garden City Police Capt. Randy Ralston said. Possible charges include possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment, the department said in a news release.
 
No arrests have been made.
 
The divorced Garden City mother said she did not get custody of her son back following a hearing Monday in Finney County District Court, after Kansas authorities had placed the boy into protective custody.
 
"That's OK - I am not giving up," Banda said. "I will, I will get him and I am not going to stop until I do."
 
Banda, a motivational speaker and author on the medical marijuana issue, has been at the center of a social media storm after she went public with her story. Several supporters rallied Monday at a park near the courthouse.
 
"It is a hot topic all across the United States," Ralston said of the social media attention. "It doesn't surprise me."
 
Banda is the author of a book "Live Free or Die: Reclaim your Life . . . Reclaim your Country!" that recounts her use of a concentrated cannabis oil to treat Crohn's Disease.
