Check Out One Of NCIA’s Quarterly Cannabis Caucuses In April

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, March, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

national cannabis industry association ncia arizonaI have attended a handful of National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) events, and literally every single one of them have been educational, empowering, and were fantastic for networking opportunities. NCIA does an outstanding job of advocating for its members and the cannabis industry as a whole, which is why I have always supported them. They also hire a lot of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) alumni, which is always a smart move and a surefire way to improve any organization or company.

One type of NCIA event that I haven’t attended yet is one of their ‘Quarterly Cannabis Caucuses.’ The first round of caucuses took place in January, and I heard from several people that they were amazing. I am going to try as hard as I can to get up to the Portland caucus on April 12th to check it out. Looking at some of the people that have been talking about it on social media, it is shaping up to be an amazing event.

I really like the concept of quarterly regional events, and tip my hat to NCIA for putting these on. The cannabis industry landscape is changing at a rapid pace, with stuff changing/evolving constantly. I know in my state, Oregon, you never really know 100% what is going on with so many changes being proposed/approved and so many hearings, etc. Having a meeting every three months to get a lot of people in the same room to get educated and educate each other is a great idea in my opinion.

Florida House Passes Medical Marijuana Bill, United for Care’s Amendment 2 Still the Patients’ Choice

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite the inability of the state to roll out a low-THC medical marijuana program for cancer and seizure patients in a timely fashion, not to mention the distinct possibility that voters will pass an initiative this November that will bring about a comprehensive medicinal cannabis program for a variety of conditions, Florida lawmakers are still wasting their time trying to expand the state’s non-existent “Charlotte’s Web” law to the terminally ill. 

The Florida House of Representatives voted last week 99 to 16 in favor of a measure that would allow those who have been given less than a year to live the “right” to use full-strength marijuana. The measure (House Bill 307), which is being lopped in with the newly passed “Right to Try Act,” seems to be a clever, but remedial attempt at paving the way for the cultivation and distribution of marijuana that has the capacity to get patients stoned.

Help Oregon Patients Keep OMMP Growers

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, March, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

new approach oregon marijuana legalizationThere are some major changes on the way in Oregon, which will result in a lot of patients losing their medical marijuana growers. There is a crowdfunding effort underway that seeks to help patients in that type of situation. Below is more information, via the crowdfunding effort’s page on GoFundMe:

I’m Sarah Duff, a medical marijuana patient advocate and all around cannabis activist. I co-own Duff Johnson Consulting which specializes in cannabis law compliance and have helped match hundreds of patients to a medical marijuana grower in Oregon. I created a co op so that my grower’s medicine could be pooled and distributed according to what patients want and need.

I specialize in helping low income patients find medicine regardless of cost. Roughly 230 patients are currently receiving free medicine from a grower in my co op. Growers who have been charitably giving to patients are being asked to pay $200 per patient when the patient renews their card. Other growers are being forced to drop patients due to plant number restrictions.

Not all grows are commercial enterprises. Many people do not charge much or anything to their patients.  Some growers do not aim to make money growing, they just want to grow for themself and others out of love for people and the plant. The fee is also at a time when growers are applying for their retail producer licenses which are very expensive, especially in Portland. The application fee and clinic fees are already a huge burden for many patients and too many patients will be faced with the possibility of losing their grower unless they can help the grower pay that fee.
