Philippines: Protests Against Martial Law

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Protests are emerging in the Philippine against ultra-hardline President Rodrigo Duterte‘s declaration of martial law in the southern island of Mindanao last month. Over 100 former and current lawmakers, religious leaders and activists gathered in Manila for an interfaith rally on Sunday, the Philippines’ Independence Day, demanding an end to the official suspension of basic democratic rights in Mindanao.

“A regime that trades Filipinos’ human rights for vague, ever-moving law and order goals can only add fuel to armed rebellions and set back efforts to address the roots of the conflict,” the group’s statement said. “It is the poor that bear the brunt of these wars. It is the poor that are killed. It is their rights that are violated. It is their communities that are subject to aerial bombings and abuses during military and police operations.”

The May 23 martial law declaration—to last 60 days, with potential for renewal—is ostensibly in response to an ISIS-linked terrorist group. But rights advocates fear it gives Duterte’s security forces an even freer hand in his murderous war on low-level drug dealers and users—said to have already claimed 7,000 lives since he was inaugurated last June.

Legal Pot to Boost California Economy by $5 Billion

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

California is preparing to launch a fully legal cannabis trade that stands to boost the state’s economy to the tune of $5 billion, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.

The piece, which is based on a new study from the University of California Agricultural Issues Center, says that, while the state’s newest version of a cannabis industry will undoubtedly generate impressive revenues, it will likely take some time before the entire scope of the cannabis community gets onboard with a fully legal system.

The study shows that around 30 percent of the state’s pot buyers will still frequent the black market in order to avoid paying taxes and other aspects of the legal trade.

But the gap will eventually close—just like it did once alcohol was finally pulled from the grips of prohibition.

Making the Switch From Medical to Recreational for the Cannabis Industry

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

In the next several months, the industry is expecting to welcome two additional recreational cannabis markets, both of which have had operating medicinal cannabis programs for a number of years.  Nevada is expected to launch a temporary licensing program to officially allow recreational sales starting July 1, 2017.  Meanwhile, the very first medical cannabis program in the United States, California, is expected to begin recreational sales early 2018.  Neither of these states will be the first to make the switch from medical to recreational, but they do have the benefit of learning from the multiple states who have already made the transition.  As a business owner, this isn’t as simple as, “Hey, I have a rec license, so now I can start selling rec.”  You have to consider new data points that are required for compliance, new regulations in place that require you to alter your establishment premises, then figure out how to completely redo your workflows to stay compliant with the new structure.  Let’s look at the history of this process and some of the challenges licensees have faced in making the switch.
