Marijuana Isn’t Legal in Missouri, But it’s Less Illegal Than it Used to be!

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, March, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Missouri marijuana laws have changed in 2017.  Is marijuana legal in Missouri?  Marijuana isn’t legal in Missouri; but it’s less illegal than it used to be.  Here is why:

Up until January 1, 2017, possession of any amount of marijuana, no matter how small, was considered at least a Class A misdemeanor.  A ‘Class A’ misdemeanor carries a possible jail sentence from 1 day to 1 year in the county jail.  This meant that if a defendant was caught with marijuana, even a single joint, the judge had the authority to put the defendant in jail for a year if he wanted to.  As of January 1, 2017 possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana is now a Class D misdemeanor, so long the defendant has no prior drug convictions.  A ‘Class D’ misdemeanor carries NO jail time and a maximum fine of $500.  This essentially decriminalizes recreational possession.  However, possession of marijuana over 10 grams or a previous conviction for possession of marijuana, can elevate the charge back to a Class A misdemeanor.  It is important to note that although a first offense is not punishable by jail time, a second conviction would be.  Therefore, it is important to preserve your criminal record if you are in fact charged with this offense.  Many times a lawyer may be able to negotiate an outcome that is not considered a “conviction” and therefore under the law, if you ever got caught again, you would still be considered a first time offender.

Youth on Record Executive Director Jami Duffy mentioned the funding Thursday as she accepted the Director’s Community Leadership Award at Denver FBI headquarters.

She said the program that focuses on music received $75,000 in marijuana tax revenue last year and is expecting an additional $148,000 this year.

Doctor’s Orders: Put Marijuana In Your Butt, Don’t Smoke It

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

WARNING: PREDICTABLE AND JUVENILE ATTEMPTS AT HUMOR FOLLOW.

Canada is further along than nearly every other country in embracing cannabis as a legitimate medicine. Health Canada currently licenses 38 companies to produce and distribute medical marijuana. But as for how this medicine should be taken? We’re doing it wrong, all wrong.

Most cannabis is smoked, of course, and both Health Canada and the Canadian Medical Association are both formally opposed to the inhalation of anything burned. This is why “[m]ost” doctors in Canada absolutely “hate” medical marijuana, association spokesman Jeff Blackmer told CBC. After all, one doctor pointed out, we know opiate-based painkillers reduce pain—but we don’t have doctors suggesting we should legalize smoking opium.

So what to do?
