Here's what might happen to marijuana prices if it were legalized across the US

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

Over the last two decades marijuana has practically been an unstoppable force.

Since 1995, 23 states have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, while four states (along with Washington D.C.) have legalized all aspects of marijuana, including its recreational use for adults. Even in states where marijuana failed to gain approval initially, such as Oregon, the proverbial scales were tipped in favor of supporters just a few short years later.

Even Congress is getting in on the act. In March, three U.S. Senators introduced the CARERS Act, which is a bill aimed at decriminalizing medical marijuana. The CARERS Act would make it easier for banks to make loans to legal medical marijuana businesses, would remove some of the barriers associated with medical marijuana research, and most importantly would reschedule marijuana from a schedule 1, or illicit drug, to a schedule 2 drug, signifying that it does have medical benefits, even if it is prone to abuse.

But, have you ever really thought about the hypothetical economic implications of what would happen if marijuana was made legal nationwide?

Maryland Governor Vetoes Marijuana Decriminalization Fix Bill

maryland marijuanaGov. Hogan Vetoes Widely Supported Bill Intended to Fix Maryland Marijuana Decriminalization Law

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) announced late Friday afternoon that he has vetoed a widely supported bill to remove criminal penalties for possession of marijuana paraphernalia, including potential jail time. The measure would also designate public marijuana consumption a civil offense punishable by a $500 fine.

SB 517, introduced by Sen. Bobby Zirkin (D-Baltimore County), was approved 32-13 in the Senate and 83-53 in the House of Delegates. Maryland adopted a law last year that decriminalized possession of a small amount of marijuana, but it did not include marijuana paraphernalia.
Gov. Hogan’s letter to Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller announcing the veto and explaining his reasoning is available at

Statement from the Marijuana Policy Coalition of Maryland, which supported SB 517:


“Gov. Hogan’s decision to veto this widely supported, common-sense legislation is baffling. An overwhelming majority of Maryland voters do not want citizens to be subjected to jail time and a lifelong criminal record simply for using marijuana. Their elected officials have stood up for them on this issue twice, and we hope they will do so again by overriding the governor’s veto.

PTSD Pot Study Could Force Uncle Sam to Eat Crow

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

While Uncle Sam is still not convinced there is enough applicable science behind the healing theories of medical marijuana to allow veterans suffering from debilitating mental conditions to have access to the herb, researchers are finally moving forward with a federally approved study that could result in cannabis being used as an acceptable treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Although it has taken several difficult years to get to this point, Dr. Sue Sisley and her team of scientific minds are preparing to embark on an exploration into the healing powers of the cannabis plant. The results of this study could force those members of Congress, who recently voted against allowing veterans to discuss medical marijuana with their VA physicians, to eat crow.

Earlier last year, after receiving federal approval to proceed with her research, Dr. Sisley was terminated from her position at the University of Arizona, where the study was to be overseen. Fortunately, the state of Colorado came forward with a $2 million donation from the state’s recreational market to get this research off the ground.

Yet, Sisley and her team have since been forced to contend with the government’s inability to produce the caliber of cannabis required for the study. So they have been impatiently waiting for the University of Mississippi to harvest a crop specific to their potency demands.
