Zombie Legislation: Are Lansing’s Marijuana Bills Dead Yet?

michigan capital marijuanaIn a really bad B-movie, sometimes the dead just keep on popping up to surprise the living- even after being stabbed, shot, burned and re-buried. Similarly, a pair of pro-marijuana bills that were (supposedly) killed by corporate greed have popped back up into relevance again, and were put down one more time on Wednesday, April 13.

The MIRS news service (“Meekhof: Senate A No-Go On Medical Marijuana Regulation For Now,” April 14) reports that Michigan’s Republican Senators caucused nearly all Wednesday morning on the subject of HBs 4209, 4210 and 4827, describing the proceedings with terms like “the outlook was not promising” and “concerns are broad” within the party caucus.

When asked after the caucus by media what the problems were with the bills, Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof (R-West Olive) said simply, “All of it.”

Another apparent death for the legislative package, which once represented the best hope for patient and business protections and are now hated by nearly everyone in Michigan’s cannabis community. But in a bizarre world where the rules are fluid and the ‘killed’ seem to have more lives that a Siamese cat, is any piece of legislation ever really dead?

Dozens Arrested in Denver-Area Pot Raids Targeting Exporters

DENVER (AP) -- Police and federal agents arrested more than 40 people and seized piles of pot plants and elaborate growing equipment Thursday during raids of homes and warehouses throughout the Denver area, part of a multi-state investigation into the illegal distribution of marijuana outside Colorado.

Authorities described the case as the latest example of drug traffickers seeking safe haven in the state's flourishing marijuana industry in order to ship the drug out of state, where it can sell for more than double what it would in Colorado. Several raids in recent weeks have taken aim at out-of-state drug rings, including a sweep last month that focused on unlicensed pot grows of varying sizes.

The government spent $18 million destroying marijuana plants last year

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

The Drug Enforcement Administration's controversial cannabis eradication program continued apace in 2015, new numbers released by the administration show. In 2015, local, state and federal authorities uprooted roughly 4.1 million cultivated marijuana plants in all 50 states, down slightly from the haul of 4.3 million plants in 2014.

Federal spending on the program remained at $18 million dollars, consistent with levels seen in previous years. That works out to a cost-per-plant of $4.42, up slightly from a cost of $4.20 per plant in 2014 (yes, really).
