Lt. Gov. Newsom Wants Californians to Support Marijuana Initiative, But Will It Lose the Stoner Vote?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

While the fight to drag California out of the clutches of prohibition has been ugly and borderline slanderous, a recent editorial by Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom suggests the “Adult Use of Marijuana Act” (AUMA) is the smartest approach to ending the travesty of the drug war in the Golden State.

In a seeming attempt to lure in that percentage of California voters still on the fence about launching a recreational marijuana market, Newsom said that the current law has allowed too many people to be locked up for drug offenses, while the resources spent on treatment and prevention have been next to none.

“Given the high cost and ineffectiveness of the status quo, you don’t have to be ‘pro-marijuana’ to be ‘anti-prohibition,’” he wrote for the Modesto Bee.

Marijuana Could Have a Surprising Economic Impact, New Report Shows

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Yesterday we witnessed the release of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a highly anticipated movie depicting an unstoppable force and the proverbial immovable object. But what many people might overlook is that we've been witnessing a real-life battle for years beyond the confines of the movie theater between a seemingly unstoppable force known as marijuana, and the federal government which has maintained its position as the immovable object.

The real-life unstoppable force and immovable object
Marijuana has grown by veritable leaps and bounds since it was first approved by Proposition 215 in California all the way back in 1996. Today we can count 23 states as having legalized the drug for medical purposes. Additionally, since 2012 four states (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska) have legalized the sale of recreational marijuana. The result, at least for some recreation-legal states, has been explosive growth.

Marijuana Program Inspector- Detroit Job Listing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

trichomes marijuana25 people so far have posted resumes in answer to a new job opening in the metro Detroit area: Medical Marijuana Program Inspector.

“Under direct supervision, incumbents perform the range of duties following specified protocols during the inspection of Medical Marijuana dispensaries. Inspection and investigative work is reviewed on an ongoing basis,” per the job listing. The posting also lists “Exposure to the odor and/or the handling of marijuana, marijuana products, and products used to cultivate marijuana” as a special requirement of the Inspector’s position.

Also listed: the need to “work effectively with frequent interruptions and distractions in locations such as dispensaries, and processing facilities.” This phrase stands out as odd: the City of Detroit did not authorize medical marijuana processing facilities in their Caregiver Center ordinance, and the Detroit ordinance is the only new one under which any new distribution centers are being licensed.

The advertisement was posted by the Southeastern Michigan Health Association, whose Executive Director is Gary Petroni and Deputy Director is Jeremy Andrews. Their website describes the organization as “a tax exempt nonprofit corporation, 501(c)(3), dedicated to improving community health by providing grant management, fiduciary, research, planning and other services.”
