Maryland Legislature Rejects Veto, Paraphernalia Decriminalized

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite an attempt by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to continue bringing the criminal hammer down on those caught in possession of marijuana paraphernalia, those caught with pipes, bongs and other smoking devises no longer have to worry about being sent to jail.

On Thursday, the Maryland legislature, dominated by Democratic forces, took precedence over a number of the governor’s vetoes, including a bill that would have allowed the possession of drug paraphernalia to remain a criminal offense. Both the House and Senate locked in a fiendish override to Hogan’s rejection of last year’s proposal intended to strengthen the scope of the state’s decriminalization laws. 

Although Maryland moved to decriminalize the possession of marijuana in 2014, the bill did not come attached with a provision that allowed paraphernalia to be treated in the same manner. Senator Bobby Zirkin attempted to fix this oversight last year with the introduction of Senate Bill 517—a proposal intended to bring some balance to the decriminalization law by removing the criminal penalties for the possession of all things associated with the consumption of cannabis.

California Marijuana Growers Face New Crop of Local Bans

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

When the California Legislature passed the state's first comprehensive medical marijuana regulations in September, pot advocates hoped the move heralded a new era of trust in their often-tumultuous relationship with wary local officials and police.

So far, it hasn't turned out that way.

Facing what appears to be a rapidly closing window for action, dozens of cities and counties from across California are racing to enact new bans on marijuana-growing. Some apply only to commercial cultivation, both indoor and outdoor, but many would also prohibit personal pot gardens that have been legal - or at least overlooked - for 19 years.

Arizona: Medical Marijuana Activists Score A Big Victory By Getting Harmful Bill Withdrawn

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, January, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

arizona marijuanaYesterday I saw something really cool happen on social media. Early in the day I saw an action alert go out from Arizona in which it was requested that patients and supporters call State Representative Jay Lawrence (R-Fountain Hills) to tell him that HCR 2019 was harmful, and to withdraw it. Then later in the day I saw alerts go out that the bill had been withdrawn. Fantastic! Per the Phoenix New Times:

State Representative Jay Lawrence (R-Fountain Hills) has withdrawn his bill that could have destroyed Arizona’s medical-marijuana program.

Lawrence’s bill, HCR 2019, would have stripped naturopaths and homeopaths of the right to recommend medical marijuana, even though those doctors write nearly 90 percent of the recommendations. His plan also called for patients to renew their cards every six months instead of every year, paying double the annual fees.

“We received so many calls,” he tells New Times. “I had heard anecdotally that [the cards] are handed out wildly. I learned from the callers that there is a lot more care taken by naturopaths than I had originally been told.”
