New York’s Cannabis Growers Lobby for More Medical Patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

New York’s medical marijuana program is considered one of the most restrictive in the nation, a ragtag system currently providing fewer than 4,000 patients across the entire state with access to cannabis products. However, in an attempt to prevent the newfound industry from sinking into the depths of impoverishment, the five companies selected by the state to cultivate and distribute this alternative treatment option to people suffering from serious or life threatening conditions have banded together in an effort to persuade lawmakers to support upgrades to the Compassionate Care Act.

Since the program was launched at the beginning of the year, the 20 medical marijuana dispensaries responsible for servicing patients throughout the state have listened to crickets predicting bankruptcy if adjustments are not made, and soon, to provide more people with the freedom to choose weed over the pharmaceutical circus. It is for this reason that, for the sake of longevity, the five companies that make up the market have formed the Medicinal Cannabis Industry Association – a lobby group hoping to convince more members of the NY General Assembly to expand the program before it chokes on its own conservative leash.

Oregon: It’s Getting Much Harder For Marijuana Entertainment Events And Venues

One of my favorite niches or sectors of the marijuana industry in Oregon is the marijuana entertainment sector. The first one that I had ever heard of was the World Famous Cannabis Cafe (WFCC). It has since been shutdown due to new indoor air rules, but at one point in time it was the hotspot destination in Oregon. Other venues built on a similar model started popping up all over Oregon. Some are still operating, while others have been shutdown like the WFCC.

Another type of entertainment event started proliferating Oregon over the last couple of years. One-time events have become a mainstay of the Oregon marijuana industry. Sometimes they are comedy shows, sometimes they are painting events, and other times they are something different still. But the main principle of renting out a venue space, charging people an admission at the door, and having ‘cannabis catering’ as I call it is something that a lot of people are doing in Oregon right now.

I have attended a handful of events that fit that description, and they are always fun. The entertainment portion is what I mainly come for, but I’d be lying if I said the cannabis sampling wasn’t part of what convinced me to leave my house to come to the event. To me it seems obvious, and quite logical, that if I’m attending a cannabis themed event that I plan on consuming cannabis while I’m at said event. Unfortunately it sounds like the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) is going to be cracking down on events like the ones described, which combined with the new Oregon Clean Air Act, could result in a dramatic decrease in marijuana entertainment events and venues.

State House passes changes to medical marijuana pilot program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana advocates in Illinois won a big victory in the waning hours of the legislature's spring session.

The Illinois House passed a measure on Monday that would change the program's expiration date to 2020, expand the number of qualifying conditions and make it easier for patients to access medical marijuana.

In a rare display of bipartisanship, Republicans Gov. Bruce Rauner and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin reached an agreement with Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang to extend the medical marijuana pilot program.
