Owner Of The Baltimore Ravens Supports Eugene Monroe As He Calls For Medical Marijuana Research

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Steve Bisciotti baltimore ravens marijuanaWhether you are a fan of sports or not, you should be a fan of Eugene Monroe. Eugene Monroe currently plays for the Baltimore Ravens in the National Football League (NFL), and has made a lot of headlines lately due to not only his calls for more research on how medical cannabis can help players, but he also put up a $10,000 donation towards researches while challenging other members of the NFL to do the same. Eugene Monroe talks the talk, and walks the walk.

I have said it many times since Eugene started advocating for cannabis research to the media – I absolutely admire his courage. There are a lot of retired athletes that are calling for marijuana reform in sports, but they have the benefit of not having to deal with the backlash while still having to go compete. I don’t want to take away from retired players, because their message is absolutely vital to reform in sports and in society too. Retired athletes like former NBA All Star Cliff Robinsonare changing a lot of minds and helping breakdown the stigma surrounding cannabis, and not just in sports. As I’ve said before, a lot of my grandma’s most conservative friends are now on the right side of history entirely because of Cliff’s advocacy. That’s powerful stuff.

Eugene Monroe’s advocacy is just as vital, because he’s looking forward. I’d imagine he’s looking forward and envisioning what the rest of his career is going to be like, and for that matter, what the rest of his life is going to be like. Eugene Monroe has taken a beating on the field many, many times. He has been injured and has had to have surgery on his knee. As with all NFL players, head injuries are a constant concern I’m sure. So when he says that there needs to be research done to see how medical cannabis can help players who are dealing with injuries, I absolutely respect where he’s coming from.

Oregon Health Authority To Offer Provisional Registration To Marijuana Extract Makers

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

dabs concentrates extracts bho shatterEarlier this week the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) issued a directive that no medical marijuana dispensaries were allowed to take in new marijuana extract inventory until licenses are issued to extract processors. There are currently no licenses, and the process to apply for a license doesn’t even open until the beginning of next month. The OHA directive literally put people out of business overnight. My Facebook feed was completely full of sad stories about companies laying off employees and people scrambling to figure out what they were going to do.

I’m very happy to say that OHA has announced that it will allow provisional registration to Oregon extract companies that submit complete applications starting April 1. So extract companies can’t start processing again today, but at least there is only a short wait. Below is an explanation of the change via the Oregon Cannabis Association:

The Oregon Health Authority has announced that beginning April 1, cannabis processors who submit completed applications for licensing through the OHA will be given a provisional registration that allows them to operate under OMMA rules until their licenses are approved. This means that extractors who follow the OHA’s rules and submit completed applications on April 1 will be able to resume operations, and that dispensaries will be allowed to accept transfers of extracts from registered processors.

Tampa Decriminalizes Marijuana Possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

While Florida still considers any person caught holding a little marijuana a low-level criminal, a number of municipalities across the state have made it their mission in recent months to do away with the penalties associated with minor possession. The most recent is the City of Tampa, where Mayor Bob Buckhorn has signed a measure into law that will prevent those people busted with small amounts of weed from being thrown in jail.

On Monday, the mayor put his signature a popular ordinance that will give the Tampa Police Department the freedom to hand out citations to petty pot offenders instead of running them through the criminal justice system. The new law comes just a week after the city council put their seal of approval on the measure in a vote of 5 to 1, suggesting that any amount of marijuana under 20 grams should be handled with a simple fine.
