Snoop Dogg Is Starting A Marijuana Investment Fund

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, February, 10th 2015 by THCFinder
snoop-dogg-starting-a-marijuana-investment-fundSnoop Dogg has been an icon in the marijuana world for more than two decades. I have seen him perform at many marijuana events. From media reports that came out this week, it sounds like he is trying to start a marijuana investment fund. That’s not too surprising considering how big his name is in the marijuana world already, and how popular the marijuana industry is becoming. There are many people scrambling to invest in marijuana companies, and even more people looking for an investor for their idea, so it’s logical that Snoop is making a move like this.
The details on what exactly Snoop is looking to do is not that clear right now, but the basics are that he is raising 25 million dollars, and is looking to invest in marijuana tech companies. Per Tech Crunch:
Sources tell us the prolific rapper, youth football coach and marijuana aficionado is putting together a fund specifically to invest in cannabis startups. According to one source, he hopes to raise $25 million to fund the nascent, but fast-growing legal marijuana industry. Because his agency is still in the process of raising the fund, its ultimate size is uncertain. His representatives did not reply to requests for comment.
Snoop is one of many celebrities who have begun dabbling in tech investing over the last few years. Ashton Kutcher paved the way with the launch of his A-Grade Investments fund, which has put money into companies like Airbnb, Flipboard, and StyleSeat. But lately he’s been joined by the likes of Nas, Jared Leto and Justin Bieber among others.
As for Snoop, his tech investing career seems to have taken off recently. Over the last few months, the rapper invested in Reddit, the so-called homepage to the Internet, as well as zero-fee stock trading platform Robinhood.
I’m very curious to see how well this actually works out. Yes, Snoop loves marijuana. But consuming marijuana and rapping about it is a lot different than finding the right idea at the right stage of its development and using an investment to take the idea to new heights. A lot of people are making a lot of money right now in the marijuana industry, but for every person making money, there are numerous others that are losing every penny they have on bad ideas or because of bad business practices. We will have to wait and see what ideas get investments, and how those investments pan out.

Feds lose in court against Berkeley marijuana dispensary

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 10th 2015 by THCFinder
feds-loose-in-court-to-bpgMajor Berkeley medical cannabis dispensary Berkeley Patients Group notched another win against federal authorities in court Friday when a Federal judge sided with the City of Berkeley in its efforts to keep the dispensary open.
The dispensary will now remain open while the courts decide whether the City of Berkeley has the legal standing to defend the club in court against federal prosecutors.
In May 2013, United States Attorney Melinda Haag moved to seize the state’s oldest, most respected legal cannabis dispensary as part of a broad crackdown on state-legal canna-businesses. But the property owner and the City of Berkeley sued to block the forfeiture. The City argues that it would suffer irreparable harm if the case were allowed to proceed to conclusion without City participation.
In the Fall, a judge dismissed Berkeley’s claim, saying it had no standing in the case. But Berkeley appealed, and sought a stay of forfeiture pending the outcome of the appeal.
During Friday’s hearing, prosecutors argued against the stay in favor of seizing BPG, but Judge Jon S. Tigar rejected prosecution’s arguments, writing that higher courts could still rule the City of Berkeley has standing and that “district courts should recognize the public interest reflected in a properly enacted local ordinance.”
All the key factors in the case support a stay, Judge Tigar wrote, and “Berkeley’s Motion to Stay is granted.”
The case will remain on hold until the Ninth Circuit decides whether Berkeley has standing.
BPG’s leadership does not understand why U.S. Attorney Haag is defying orders from the White House as well as Congressional law mandating she do something more useful with her time and resources.
“We’re still surprised given the recent change in the climate surrounding medical cannabis in California that the attorney is being relentless in her fight,” said Victor Pinho, for BPG. “We are emboldened by this judgement and we reaffirm our commitment to our patients and reaffirm our commitment to fighting the good cause of making sure every one who needs access has proper access.”


O.C.'s disjointed approach to pot: Anaheim says 'no,' Costa Mesa and Santa Ana say 'yes'

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Mon, February, 9th 2015 by THCFinder
ocs-dispensaries-santa-ana-costa-mesa-anaheimTony Jalali believes medical marijuana should be accessible. Still, he is evicting a small dispensary in an office complex under orders from Anaheim officials.
Meanwhile, in Costa Mesa, Joyce Weitzberg is hoping to reopen her cannabis collective in a town where leaders have reversed course and are now taking steps to regulate and tax marijuana sales.
Between those cities is Santa Ana, where Cypress Hill rapper “B-Real” last week won a lottery that puts him on a path to legally distribute medical marijuana in the city.
Dazed and confused? There’s reason for that. Orange County communities are taking dramatically differing stands to deal with the proliferation of medicinal pot shops – nearly 19 years after voters approved a statewide measure legalizing medical marijuana.
“I think that discrepancy comes from a misunderstanding on one side, and more tolerance on the other,” said Steele Smith III, director of the Orange County Collective Alliance, an advocacy group for medical marijuana dispensaries in Orange County.
“On one hand, Anaheim has heavy-handed and egregious laws that will be detrimental to patients,” Smith said. “On the other, you’re seeking a progressive attitude for safe access and eliminating cannabis prohibition.”
Jalali’s case illustrates the costs and complexities of Anaheim’s 40 dispensary-related lawsuits in the last eight years.
Three years ago, the federal government and Anaheim each filed lawsuits against Jalali for leasing space to a medical marijuana dispensary. The dispensary subsequently closed because of the suits.
But a year later, a judge dismissed the federal government’s case. Still, Anaheim pushed ahead with its suit against Jalali, a software engineer.
In the meantime, another dispensary, Anaheim Holistic Care, leased an office eight months ago on the second floor of Jalali’s building, which also houses an insurance office, a dentist’s office and other businesses at Ball Road and Magnolia Avenue.
Last month, a Superior Court judge ruled that Jalali has to shut down Anaheim Holistic Care because Anaheim has the right to enforce its prohibition on dispensaries. His attorneys are appealing.
Jalali has since issued a 30-day eviction notice to the dispensary, which remains open. A hearing is scheduled for later this month to determine whether Jalali is in contempt of court for failing to immediately close the pot shop.
“As a property owner, I should be able to rent an office to anybody, but the city is preventing me from providing a safe haven for people who need medical marijuana,” Jalali said.
