Colorado Pot Sales Hit $1.3 Billion, Taxes to Pay for ‘Game-Changing’ Program

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado is doing something constructive with the millions in marijuana revenue it’s raking in annually.

The Department of Human Services and Governor John Hickenlooper have requested an annual allocation of more than $6 million from the state’s marijuana-tax cash fund for a new program that would offer help to chronic drug users instead of criminalizing and jailing them.

Art Way, senior director for criminal-justice reform and Colorado director with the national Drug Policy Alliance, who worked closely with state agencies in crafting the proposal, believes the impact of this approach is potentially revolutionary for people struggling with addictions to heroin and other heavy narcotics.

In fact, Way believes the project could be a game changer.

New Zealand Patients Now Have Easier Access to Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Access to medical marijuana is now easier for New Zealand patients as a top minister deferred the duty of who can get the plant to the Ministry of Health.

The change in the approval process means the Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne will no longer sign off on each individual request for pharmaceutical grade medicinal cannabis products.

“When applications first began to be received it was my view that the final decision appropriately lay at ministerial level, rather than exposing officials to risk, given the complicated and contentious nature of the issue – that is to say the buck stopped with me”, wrote Mr Dunne in a statement.

President Trump Pledges to Escalate War on Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

In a speech to police chiefs and sheriffs at the Washington DC meeting of the Major Cities Chiefs Association this week, Donald Trump dealt a harsh blow to any activists who may have been hoping for a tolerant stance on drugs from the United States’ new president.

As the conservative RedState.com blog happily headlines: “Trump Promises to Ramp Up the War on Drugs.” With an almost touching innocence, it writes: “Citing his border wall as a solution along with confidence [in his Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly], Trump apparently believes he will succeed where everyone else has failed.”

The speech was a mixture of such naïveté about winning a drug-free U.S., alarmingly bellicose bombast and the usual just plain wackiness. The day before, Trump met in the Oval Office with some of the assembled sheriffs, and he cited that meeting in his speech, saying he’s asked them: “What impact do drugs have in terms of a percentage on crime? They said, 75 to 80 percent. That’s pretty sad. We’re going to stop the drugs from pouring in. We’re going to stop those drugs from poisoning our youth, from poisoning our people. We’re going to be ruthless in that fight. We have no choice.”
