Alaska: 2016 Is Going To Be Big For Marijuana Policy And Industry

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

alaska marijuana legalizationThe state legislature returned to session today with marijuana-related bills waiting for lawmakers. This year’s session happens at a critical time: The Marijuana Control Board will begin accepting applications for businesses in just over a month, local communities around the state are considering their own regulations, and businesses will begin operations later this year.

Activists, supporters, and prospective businesses should pay close attention as lawmakers and local officials continue to look at ways to regulate the emerging market.

On the legislative front, two bills introduced last year, SB 30 and HB 75, continue to be under consideration. Lawmakers have until February 22 to introduce new bills as well. While it is possible the legislature will hold off considering significant changes until the program is fully up and running, that is not yet clear, and we need to be ready to defend Measure 2.

In local communities, cities are considering their own regulations in the wake of the Marijuana Control Board’s adoption of regulations. Some have banned or limited businesses and others may do so. Fairbanks will ask the legislature to prohibit cannabis social clubs rather than implement their own ordinance. Anchorage is considering a ban on cannabis cafés and will seek to place a proposed local tax before voters.

“We need to invest in jobs and education, not jails,” Sanders said.

The Vermont senator framed the issue in the context of racial injustice, inequality and mass incarceration, asking why pot arrests are clogging the jail system while the bankers who ruined the economy have never been arrested.

“I find it strange that the kid who smokes marijuana gets arrested but the crooks on Wall Street get off scot free,” he said.

14-day notice shocks medical marijuana dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

The CPC in Georgetown has served thousands of patients since 2010. It works with hospitals, specializing in hard-to-find treatments for chronic disease, cancer, seizures and PTSD.

"We were always going to do this stuff anyways," founder Jeremy Kaufman said while pointing to new security cameras.

Kaufman is making a lot of changes to his building, adding new security cameras, constructing new walls, removing doorways, and clearing out his basement filled with cannabis plants. It's all part of applying for a new marijuana retail license, required by legislation that's combining medical and recreational pot under one regulatory system.
