UN World Drug Report Shows Cannabis Use and Acceptance Continues to Grow

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

The 2016 World Drug Report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDOC) released yesterday, shortly after April's UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on the world drug problem, provides a global overview of the supply and demand of opiates, cocaine, cannabis, amphetamine-type stimulants and new psychoactive substances, as well as their impact on health.

The report reviewed the treatment demand for cannabis and developments since the legalization of cannabis for recreational use in some parts of the world.

Cannabis remains the most commonly used drug at the global level, with an estimated 183 million people having used it in 2014. The report shows that with changing social norms towards cannabis—predominantly in the West—cannabis use has climbed, with higher acceptability towards usage. In many regions, however, more people have entered treatment for cannabis use disorders over the past decade.

Arguably the Most Important Marijuana Decision Ever Is Just Weeks Away

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

You'd be hard-pressed to find an industry with faster growth potential than marijuana.

Since it was first approved in California 20 years ago, medical marijuana has become legalized throughout half the country. Most interestingly, the last two states to legalize medical marijuana -- Pennsylvania and Ohio -- have done so entirely through the legislative process (i.e., without bringing the matter to vote by residents of the state). We've also witnessed four states (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska), as well as Washington, D.C., legalize recreational cannabis.

The growth figures are huge. ArcView Market Research, a leading cannabis research company, suggests that 30% compound annual growth is possible between 2015 and 2020. This would put the legal-marijuana industry on pace for nearly $22 billion in sales by 2020, based on ArcView's estimated $6.7 billion in legal sales for 2016.

Deleware Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Calls For The End Of Cannabis Prohibition

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, June, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

delaware marijuanaOut of Delaware:

Yesterday, state senator and Republican gubernatorial candidate Colin Bonini, publically stated he would sponsor a bill to tax and regulate the marijuana, a move that would make Delaware the first state in the nation to do so legislatively. This signals that the tide is shifting away from the failed policy of prohibition and toward a new, sensible way forward. Now is the time to tell your senator and representative that you agree with Sen. Bonini and ask them to support this responsible policy.

His statements came during a debate on a HB 332, a bill sponsored by Rep. Helene Keeley (D) that adds misdemeanor possession and marijuana paraphernalia possession to the list of violations that are eligible for probation before judgment, strengthening the state’s existing decriminalization program. HB 332 has now passed both chambers and hopefully will soon be signed by Gov. Jack Markell.

With the 2016 legislative session nearing its close, it’s very unlikely that a bill to regulate marijuana could pass this year. But with elections coming up, now is the time to let your state lawmakers know it’s time to end the prohibition of a substance that is safer than alcohol. Before you go, give your friends and family the opportunity to take action, too. Together we can forge a better path forward.
