Cannabusiness: Budding Pot Industry Is Boosting Denver's Housing Market

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

According to a Real Estate Special Report by CNN Money, the housing market in Denver is absolutely on fire—and it's due to Colorado's legalization of recreational marijuana in 2012. 

"Home prices have shot up by double-digits, inventory has fallen dramatically and multiple offers with bidding wars have become common," the report stated. "In March, Denver experienced the second-largest jump in annual home prices at 10 percent, just behind San Francisco, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index."

CNN Money pointed out that pot isn't the only force driving the market, but legalization has created massive job growth, bringing a flood of people to the area.

"The pot industry is creating jobs we didn't have before," Kelly Moye, a Re/Max real estate agent in Denver, explained. "It's brand new, it adds a whole new factor to the area; you have real estate needs, housing needs, job needs." 

Of course the boom isn't great for everyone. First-time buyers and those trying to avoid the skyrocketing prices face stiff market competition. Denver's normal housing market has around 24,000 listings—but according to Moye, right now, there are only around 4,000. 

Moye predicts that the market has room to run for five to seven years, "barring any major economic disasters."

7 States Where Medical Marijuana Is Legal But Barely Accessible

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

With New York State beginning to accept applications for medical marijuana providers last week, criticism of the hyper-strict program negotiated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been plentiful. Hinged on concerns about arbitrary regulations and insufficient patient access, advocates for medical marijuana access worry the program will be too small and restrictive to be effective.

However, New York is not the only state facing hurdles in implementing medical marijuana laws. In states across the country, legislators are struggling to enact the regulations necessary for legalized medical marijuana programs to function properly, leaving patients with long wait times and a slew of confusing procedures. Here are seven other states that are struggling to translate their marijuana legalization laws as they exist on paper into the real world.


In 2012, Massachusetts's voters approved via ballot initiative the legalization of medical marijuana and state-regulated dispensaries, but overcomplicated licensing procedures allowed not a single dispensary to open. Two dozen lawsuits followed a two-and-a-half-year wait for the law to be enforced.

Lawsuits Announced Against Washington’s Harmful Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

washington state medical marijuana raidsA team of attorneys will soon file a series of lawsuits to place an injunction on, and overturn Washington State’s Senate Bill 5052, a recently signed law that will drastically reduce the rights of medical cannabis patients in the state while closing dispensaries and establishing an illegal patient registry.

Signed by Governor Jay Inslee in AprilSenate Bill 5052 – which takes full effect in July, 2016 – will drastically reduce the amount of cannabis patients can possess and cultivate, making felons out of those who possess currently allowable limits. The measure will also lead to the closure of nearly every medical cannabis dispensary in the state, and will establish an illegal patient registry that is in clear violation of federal HIPAA laws.

The lawsuits will seek to place an immediate injunction on the new law, preventing it from taking effect while the group works to overturn it permanently.

The group of renowned attorneys who will be working on the lawsuits include Sensible Washington co-founders and longtime criminal defense attorneys Douglas Hiatt and Jeffrey Steinborn (who have 70 years combined legal experience), and attorney Aaron Pelley of Pelley Law LLC, among others.

Hiatt tells us that the group will be filing two to three separate lawsuits that will seek to fully dismantle the new law, in order to protect the rights that patients currently have, and to prevent the state from establishing the patient database.

They group plans to make a formal announcement in the coming days.
