Anti-Marijuana Politicians In Oregon Need To Remember The Story Of Dwight Holton

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

beat holtonI will never forget the 2012 Election. Before Colorado and Washington voted to legalize marijuana on Election Day 2012, there was a very significant victory in my home state, Oregon. The victory wasn’t a recreational marijuana legalization victory unfortunately, as that would wait until 2014. That’s not to say that there weren’t legalization efforts underway at that time in the Spring of 2012, as there were actually two in Oregon (one that would become Measure 80, and the other was called OMPI, which was derailed due to a hefty fine levied on the campaign by then Secretary of State, and now Governor, Kate Brown).

I was sitting in my house with Jay Smoker when I received an e-mail via an activist e-mail group I’m a part of in Oregon. The e-mail was from the late, great Jim Greig, one of the biggest freedom fighters I have ever known. Jim was asking the group if there was any interest in coordinating a citizen effort to oppose anti-medical marijuana candidate Dwight Holton who was running for Oregon Attorney General. The Attorney General race in Oregon often has an interesting twist in that there are often times only Democrats running for the seat, so the race is decided in the primary election in May, and not on the general election in November. 2012 was one of those types of elections.

It was approximately 59 days prior to the primary election day, and Dwight Holton had so much more money than his competitor Ellen Rosenblum it wasn’t even funny. Holton had hundreds of thousands of dollars more in his campaign war chest, which in a primary race in Oregon creates an enormous advantage. Dwight Holton was an establishment candidate, being the son of a former Governor of Virginia and brother to former DNC Chairman Tim Kaine. Dwight Holton was up in the polls by almost double digits, and seemed to be sailing towards an inevitable victory.

Chicago celebrity chef Mindy Segal to make marijuana sweets

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, January, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

When Mindy Segal decided she wanted to work with marijuana, the James Beard award-winning pastry chef knew she could do so much better than that tired cliché – the brownie.

Instead, she'll tap her understanding of transforming sugar into tempting treats to launch a line of chocolate brittles, granola bites, eventually even a hot chocolate – and all of them laced with butter infused with cannabis oil. In the process, she'll become one of the first celebrity chefs to lend her name and brand to the budding edible marijuana industry.

Segal, who owns Chicago’s Mindy’s Hot Chocolate restaurant and authored the cookbook “Cookie Love,” is partnering with Cresco Labs with hopes to produce the sweets for distribution in Illinois in February. The company also is in discussions to distribute the products in other states where marijuana is legal for medical or recreational use, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Washington.

MILegalize Prospectus For 2016

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana legalization milegalizeThe grassroots effort to legalize marijuana in Michigan is looking good for the 2016 portion of the campaign, according to campaign leadership.

“We are charging into the new year with focus and determination,” said MILeglaize Chair, Lansing attorney Jeffrey Hank. “Petitioning and campaigning continue statewide while our organization handles the administration of the campaign in Lansing.”

Hank reflected on the past year with praise for the workers and volunteers who compose the MILegalize group. “Our 2015 plan was successful. We augmented the ‘volunteer army’ of petitioners with professionals to create a solid core group of activists and an indisputable volume of verified signatures.”

Those signatures collected by individual volunteers were returned to the campaign in mass quantities during the first few weeks of December. “So many signatures were turned in by volunteers before December 21 that our certification service was unable to log and verify all of them over the holidays,” said MILegalize Campaign Manager Chris Silva. “They are still being processed, and petitioners that missed the December 21 deadline can still mail their petitions in to our P.O. Box or return their paperwork to petitioning hubs.”
