Utah Activists Push for Medical Marijuana on Ballot

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

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.

SAN FRANCISCO — Marijuana legalization just moved from the fringes of the last presidential campaign to center stage in 2020.

Between a sweeping new package of legislation introduced last week by one of the top Democratic presidential prospects and, on the other end of the spectrum, Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vigorous opposition to recreational use of marijuana, the debate over legalization of cannabis is about to receive a full airing on the presidential campaign trail.

While Bernie Sanders also supported medicinal use of marijuana and the decriminalization of recreational marijuana, drug policy stayed on the outskirts of the 2016 presidential debate, and growing action at the state level was barely acknowledged.

Nevada Opens Pot Distribution to Non-Liquor Wholesalers

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

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.
