massachusetts marijuana campaign 2016The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol announced Monday it has collected more than 100,000 signatures in support of a ballot initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Massachusetts. The signatures must be reviewed and certified by town and city clerks before being submitted to the secretary of the commonwealth by December 2.

64,750 valid signatures of registered state voters are required to qualify for the November 2016 ballot. After the secretary of the commonwealth’s office tallies and confirms the signatures, the petition will be transmitted to the Massachusetts Legislature. If the legislature does not adopt the measure, initiative backers must collect 10,792 additional signatures in June 2016 to place the initiative on the November 2016 ballot.

“Massachusetts voters want the opportunity to end the failed policy of marijuana prohibition in 2016,” said campaign manager Will Luzier. “This initiative will replace the underground marijuana market with a tightly regulated system of licensed businesses that pay taxes and create good jobs.

“It should not be a crime for adults to engage in the responsible consumption of a substance that is objectively less harmful than alcohol,” Luzier said. “Police have far more pressing things to worry about than issuing citations to every adult they find in possession of a small amount of marijuana.”

Lawyer: South Dakota Tribe Destroying Marijuana Crop

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — An American Indian tribe slated to open the nation's first marijuana resort is destroying its crop and temporarily suspending the project in South Dakota while leaders seek clarification from the federal government, according to the tribe's attorney.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, which planned to open a lounge selling marijuana on New Year's Eve, was the first tribe in South Dakota to legalize the drug following the U.S. Department of Justice's decision last year to allow tribes to do so on tribal land.

Seth Pearman, the tribe's lawyer, said in a statement Saturday to the Argus Leader newspaper that the tribe was destroying its existing crop and temporarily suspending its marijuana cultivation and disturbing facilities. He said tribal leaders were confident that the venture would succeed after seeking clarification on regulations from the Justice Department.

Medical marijuana goes on sale Monday in Illinois

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

Marijuana is expected to be sold legally in Illinois for the first time in decades Monday to those who have qualified to be among the first patients in the state's medical cannabis program.

Barring any last-minute glitches, up to eight marijuana dispensaries, including several in the Chicago area, are scheduled to open Monday, after state regulators gave cultivation centers the go-ahead to start shipping the drug to the retailers late last week.

Five of the dispensaries - in Addison, Canton, Marion, Mundelein and Quincy- confirmed they have inventory and are ready to open, according to the Medical Cannabis Alliance of Illinois.

Illinois officials said they mailed the required ID cards Oct. 30 to qualifying patients, whose numbers have climbed to about 3,300 — still well below the number that many people in the fledgling industry say is needed to make the business viable in Illinois.
