It’s Official: Maine Will Be Voting On Marijuana Legalization This November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, April, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

maine marijuanaIt’s official – Maine voters will see marijuana legalization on the ballot when they vote in the General Election in November. The marijuana legalization initiative made the ballot after a legal battle that seemed ridiculous from the start. Below is a press release from the campaign:

State officials announced Wednesday that a proposed initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Maine has officially qualified for the November ballot.

After a court-ordered review of petitions it had previously invalidated, the Maine Secretary of State’s Office determined the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol submitted more than the 61,123 signatures that were needed to qualify.

Last month, the secretary of state informed the campaign that the initiative had been disqualified because only 51,543 valid signatures had been submitted. The campaign filed a lawsuit challenging the decision, and a Kennebec County Superior Court judge ruled in their favor earlier this month after learning state officials invalidated more than 5,000 petitions —which included more than 17,000 signatures from Maine voters that were validated by town clerks — without actually reviewing every petition in question. The petition was then remanded to the Secretary of State’s Office to review all of the disputed petitions and determine whether enough valid signatures were collected.

Denver Freezes Weed Industry at Current Size

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

The "booming" marijuana industry in Denver, Colorado will remain frozen at its current size. 

On Monday, the Denver City Council approved a hotly-debated bill to ban new marijuana shops and grows, leaving a lock on the current number of stores. Applicants can apply to establish new marijuana businesses when the number of operations drops below the current cap, but the distribution of marijuana businesses will play a role in determining where they can operate.

Could marijuana help treat painkiller and heroin addiction?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

The growing number of patients who claim marijuana has helped them drop theirpainkiller habit has intrigued lawmakers and emboldened advocates. Many are pushing for cannabis as a treatment for the abuse of opioids and illegal narcotics such as heroin, and as an alternative to painkillers.

It's a tempting sell in New England, hard hit by the painkiller and heroin crisis. But there's a problem: There is very little research showing marijuana works as a treatment for such addictions.

Advocates argue a growing body of scientific literature supports the idea, pointing to a study in the Journal of Pain this year that found that chronic pain sufferers significantly reduced their opioid use when taking medical cannabis. Another study, published last year in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found cannabis can be effective in treating chronic pain and other ailments.
