Rhode Island: House Budget Would Significantly Change Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

rhode island medical marijuana dispensaryImportant news out of Rhode Island. See the legislative alert I received below:

In February, Gov. Gina Raimondo proposed an annual state budget that included several amendments to Rhode Island’s medical marijuana program, including hefty new fees that alarmed patient advocates. On Tuesday, the House Finance Committee approved a budget proposal with many of Gov. Raimondo’s medical marijuana amendments, but with far lower fees.

Major provisions of Article 14 Sub A include:

— Patients and caregivers who grow medical marijuana would be required to purchase $25 “tags” for each plant from the Department of Business Regulation. Low-income and disabled patients would be exempt from paying the fee but would still need to acquire tags.

— Patients would no longer need to designate compassion centers as “caregivers” and would be permitted to purchase medical marijuana from all compassion centers.

— Cooperative cultivations (when two or more cardholders grow together) would be required to obtain a license from the Department of Business Regulation. The department would also begin issuing licenses to large-scale cultivators that would sell medical marijuana to compassion centers.

Marijuana Use May Be OK With Some Life Insurance Companies

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

If you smoke marijuana and you’re shopping for life insurance, chances are you can find a company that won’t penalize you for your habit, but you may have to weed out several insurers to find the best policy.

Eighty percent of the 148 underwriters who were surveyed by reinsurer Munich Re at the Association of Home Office Underwriters annual conference last year said their company factors marijuana use into its decisions on how to price policies and whether to offer coverage. Yet, of those, 29 percent classify marijuana users as nonsmokers, potentially allowing them to qualify for the best nonsmoker rates.

Denver NORML Pushes To Legalize Marijuana Clubs And Events

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana is legal to purchase, possess and to consume in the state of Colorado, but where? Well, if you happen to be in the city of Denver (or most anywhere else in Colorado) the answer is very simple, you can only legally consume cannabis in a private residence. But what if your landlord won’t allow it, or if you are one of the thousands of tourists that visits our great city on a daily basis. Then where do all of those people go? This question is one Denver NORML hopes to help answer this November.

The local chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws spent several months working with various stakeholders to develop a regulatory framework to create a space where responsible adults can consume their legally purchased marijuana products. Denver NORML is currently collecting signatures for the Responsible Use Denver initiative. The initiative will provide a license for the establishment and operation of private, 21-and-over members-only facilities where adults and bring their own cannabis and peacefully consume it in a relaxed, legal public setting.

The initiative language was written to provide the city with what it is lacking, a set of rules and standards to open a business and maintain a license for a place for adults to responsibly consume marijuana. There are several businesses right now in the city of Denver operating in a grey area. Currently these businesses have no laws to follow or to protect them. This grey area needs definition. Those same businesses could now open marijuana clubs with their namesake or these businesses could now apply for special event permits where marijuana will be permitted.
