Canada Health Minister Is Exploring Regulatory Models for Nationwide Pot Reform

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

Canada heath officials are not wasting any time getting into the pertinent details for how the country might establish a taxed and regulated cannabis market.

Earlier last week, just as the United States was preparing to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, the northern nation’s Minister of Health, Jane Philpott, told CBC News that the Canadian government was already wrist deep in an exploratory expedition to find the appropriate regulatory model for bringing prohibition to end across the land.

However, convinced "the world is going to be looking to Canada to make sure we do the job well,” the nation’s leading heath officer admits to having some troubles pinpointing a model that addresses every concern. She says a task force of scientists and medical professionals was currently being assembled to assist her in hashing out the issue.

Michigan Marijuana Activists Shine At National Events

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana activistsThe national marijuana movement has some established personalities and Conference regulars, but more and more of those personalities are Michigan residents.

The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) conference in Washington, D.C. saw a broad contingent of Michigan speakers and attendees- and will again; a recent conference in Las Vegas had at least one Michigander on the microphone; and it’s been a busy year for one of our community’s brightest couples.

DPA’s conference is a major annual event. This year a large number of activists from Michigan made their presence felt, both as medical marijuana patients and legalization advocates. MILegalize had Board members Matt Abel, Josey Scoggin, Chuck Ream, Michael Tuffelmire and Nick Zettell on the ground and representing the grass-roots effort to legalize marijuana in Michigan. Brenda Scoggin and Dakota Serna were in attendance, too.

It’s been an amazing year for Dakota and Josey. Josey (Sons and Daughters United) has been shouldering a huge burden on her young shoulders as the petition coordinator for the MILegalize campaign while making public appearances and collecting signatures herself. Dakota has emerged nationally as a voice for veterans and the therapeutic use of medicinal cannabis. The duo have spoken at conferences in Washington State, California and D.C. in 2015, and their schedule will probably be even more hectic in 2016.

San Jose leaders eye changes to medical marijuana rules

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

SAN JOSE -- With just weeks to go before a December deadline for compliance, medical marijuana providers are still balking at some of San Jose's rules and city officials are offering to ease them.

 
 

Nineteen pot providers have been seeking to meet San Jose's regulatory requirements by December 18. The rules, adopted in June 2014, restrict pot stores to select industrial and commercial areas away from schools and parks and impose a host of security, tax payment and other requirements. Dispensaries that fail to meet the requirements by the deadline face closure.

But one rule in particular requiring pot stores to demonstrate that their marijuana is cultivated locally and not from collectives around the state remains a sticking point. City officials planned to ask the City Council to ease the rules Tuesday, allowing another five months for shops to sell through products obtained from "third-party" vendors and letting San Jose pot clubs buy and sell to one another.
