More Marijuana Businesses Need To Hire Military Veterans

ptsd second amendment military veteran cannabis marijuanaI have a lot of respect for military veterans. I have members of my family, and close personal friends that have served our country, and I’m very proud of them. Most of them have had a hard time when they come back to civilian life. It’s hard for them to relate to the civilian world, and gaining reliable employment was an issue after they were discharged. I have recommended to a few of them to look for a career in the cannabis industry, but as far as I know, none of them have taken my advice yet.

I know there are marijuana businesses out there that give hiring preference to veterans. I’d like to see more businesses do that in this industry. Many marijuana businesses need private security, and veterans are a logical fit for that sector of the industry. Per International Business Times:

“There’s plenty of ex-military available who are back from overseas and having a hard time finding work,” says Dan Williams, head of Canna Security America, which is based in Denver but operates in 12 states. “What you were doing over there may not transition [to other lines of work]. You were trained to do something, and that doesn’t really apply to working at Starbucks.”

Indeed, unemployment among veterans is a nationwide problem. Even as the United States added more than 3 million jobs in 2014, 7.9 percent of veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan were still unemployed, higher than the national average of 5.7 percent.

“Right now, they need jobs,” Williams says. “And we can help with that.”

According to Williams, ex-military members tend to have a good work ethic and plenty of past training. And he expects that within the next few months roughly 70 to 80 percent of his staff will be former military, to account for an increased demand for armed guards and transport. Most of the entry-level jobs don’t pay particularly well, but there is definitely room for growth.

I tip my hat to Canna Security America for hiring veterans. If you are a marijuana business, please do what you can to try to hire military veterans when you can. They have served our country proudly, and giving them a job is a great way to thank them for their service.

Missouri is considering taxing illegal drugs and legalizing medical marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

It took a little while for Missouri Rep. Shawn Rhoads’ colleagues to wrap their heads around the idea of taxing marijuana and other illegal drugs.

“A drug dealer is supposed to show up and buy a tax stamp for his drugs?”Bill Lant, a Republican from southwest Missouri, asked during a committee hearing on the bill.

Most of the hearing went pretty much like that.

“They needed a little time to let the idea sink in,” said Rhoads, a south-central Missouri Republican. “About 15 minutes after the meeting, I had someone grab me and say, ‘I get it now.’”

It must have sunk in. The bill won the committee’s approval Wednesday.

But while lawmakers ponder making Missouri the 21st state to collect taxes on illegal drugs, they’re also contemplating heading in the opposite direction and making Missouri the 24th to legalize marijuana in some fashion.

Two weeks earlier, that same House committee approved a medical marijuana bill on a 10-1 vote.

Missouri’s increasingly conservative politics, and its overwhelmingly Republican General Assembly, apparently aren’t immune to the national momentum behind marijuana legalization.

Gallup has been surveying the public on marijuana since 1969. In 2013, it found for the first time that a clear majority of Americans — 58 percent — believed the drug should be legal. That was a 10 point jump in just one year.

Weed stashed in peanut butter sent to drug store

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, April, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

A kosher food grocer found himself in a sticky situation when 10 bags of weed — stashed inside vacuum-sealed bags of peanut butter — showed up at his Brooklyn shop in the mail, police sources said.

The owner Kahan’s Superette told cops whoever mailed the mystery package must have made a mistake — because he doesn’t sell those kind of treats, the sources said.

“It wasn’t anything that they asked for,” a police source said.

The bizarre package arrived at the food market on Kingston Avenue near Union Street in Crown Heights at 4 p.m. on Monday, the police sources said.

“Wrong delivery address results in the seizure of 10 large bags of marijuana wrapped in peanut butter,” the 71st Precinct tweeted, along with a photo of the gooey mess on Monday.

The marijuana, which was delivered by the USPS, was wrapped in plastic bags then covered in peanut butter.

“I have no idea where it came from. It was just dropped off,” a worker at the shop told The Post.

It’s unclear how much weed was in the packages. Cops declined comment on where the packages had been mailed from.

The grocery store sells such items as Marvid kosher chicken, bagels and fresh salmon, according to its Facebook page.
