Utah Activists Push for Medical Marijuana on Ballot
Medical marijuana supporters in Utah received a green light from state election officials on Thursday to start gathering the 113,143 signatures required to qualify their MMJ measure for the November 2018 ballot.
The political issues committee Utah Patients Coalition’s spokesperson said they will begin collecting signatures next week—with a stated goal of gathering all the signatures required before the beginning of the legislative session in January 2018.
According to UTP, in 2014 HB 105 made it legal for patients to possess and use low-THC cannabidiol when directed by a doctor. Since this initial victory for patients, cannabis legislation has barely progressed.
In 2015, and 2016, the legislature considered The Medical Cannabis Act, sponsored by Senator Mark Madsen, that would have legalized doctor-recommended medical cannabis for nine specifically-listed medical conditions, such as epilepsy, cancer, AIDS, chronic pain, PTSD and others. In 2016, it passed favorably through the Senate but was defeated in the House.

Venom OG (Indica)
While the buds that come from Venom OG are not particularly dense, they are chock-full of potent trichomes. Venom OG has exotic flavors of Kush, orange and freshly upturned soil, giving it quite a delicious flavor combination. The smell is of Kush and citrus. One of the things Venom OG has become most notorious for is its ability to cause couch lock in even the most seasoned of smokers. Venom OG was created by using a Rare Dankness #1 male to pollinate a Poison OG female that the breeder took over a year in selecting.
Nevada Opens Pot Distribution to Non-Liquor Wholesalers
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators have decided to start issuing pot distribution licenses to businesses other than liquor wholesalers to keep up with overwhelming demand since legal recreational sales began July 1.
The Nevada Department of Taxation voted Thursday to open up the market previously limited to liquor distributors under the state ballot measure voters approved in November.
Department spokeswoman Stephanie Klapstein said they’ll begin reviewing about 80 applications they received in May from other businesses.
Tax officials previously tried to open the distribution process to medical dispensaries, but liquor wholesalers argued in court that violated state law.
