LA Marijuana Dispensary Ban Suspended

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, August, 31st 2012 by THCFinder
Medical marijuana patients in Los Angeles can exhale a sigh of relief. At least for now.
 
LA's marijuana dispensary ban, which was set to go into effect in one week, has been temporarily suspended after patients and supporters delivered 50,000 signatures to force a referendum on the ban, the city clerk's office told The Huffington Post Thursday.
 
The ban, which has the approval of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Police Chief Charlie Beck, intends to shut down about 1,000 marijuana dispensaries in the city, including those that have complied with the law. Instead of using dispensaries, groups of three or fewer marijuana patients would be allowed to grow marijuana in their homes.
 
“We understand and appreciate the need for strict rules and regulations regarding dispensaries. But the outright ban went too far, and will result in many sick and infirm patients suffering needlessly," Gary Carver, a medical marijuana user who suffers from glaucoma and was one of the petition's signatories, said in a statement. "What we need is a thoughtful policy that allows us to get our medicine and protects communities, not a shortsighted ban that causes us pain and thwarts the will of the people.”
 
The city clerk's office has 15 days to verify the signatures. If at least 27,425 signatures are verified, the City Council has 20 days to choose to either repeal the ban or to put it to the voters on the March 5, 2013 ballot.
 
Patients and supporters hope the ban will be repealed, but if it's put to a vote, they say they're confident Angelenos will support storefront access to medical marijuana.
 
Opponents of the ban say that most sick patients either do not have the ability, time or funds to grow medical-grade marijuana at home. At the initial City Council hearing in July, a representative of the United Food and Commercial Workers, which now includes dispensary workers, said that setting up a bare-minimum, one-light "grow tent" at home costs more than $5,000.

Medical Marijuana Industry Group says Denver Outdoor Advertising Ban is "Appropriate"

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 31st 2012 by THCFinder

The Denver City Council voted last week to ban outdoor medical marijuana advertising, and a medical marijuana advocacy group say that’s a good thing.

 

Michael Elliott, the executive director of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group (MMIG) says, “Under the new ordinance, medical marijuana businesses will still have access to a comprehensive range of affordable venues in which to advertise. These include but are not limited to: the print media, merchandising, and web-based solutions including social media. In addition, business signage will still be allowed. But most importantly, patients can be assured that they will have the necessary tools to easily locate and procure their medication.

 

“Put simply, this ordinance addresses those concerns most often voiced by Denver’s citizenry, while maintaining the rights of industry participants to market their businesses in an efficient, fair, and cost-effective manner.

 

“While we remain sympathetic to critics who question the need for additional regulations, MMIG is committed to pushing for a comprehensive regulatory framework. Some may argue that when compared to other industries, medical marijuana has been overregulated. However, for better or worse, we are participants in a young, dynamic, and scrutinized industry. If we are to survive the attacks from without, oversight and regulation must be promulgated and supported from within.”

 

But one has to wonder: where do you draw the line when it comes to regulations on medical marijuana?

 

“To prove to our communities that this industry can be the good neighbor, employer, and healthcare provider they desire, we must be willing to compromise and make concessions,” Mr. Elliot said.

 

Advocates must be careful about how much they give in an effort to appease others. Acting like marijuana is a bad thing that needs to be hidden sets what could be a dangerous precedent.
