Join Me April 12 In Portland For The National Cannabis Industry Association Cannabis Caucus Event

Category: Events | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

I don’t get out to a lot of events, but I try to get to as many National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) events as possible. NCIA is not only the leading national advocacy group for the emerging cannabis industry (I think they are the only one!), but they also do an amazing job at the local level too. One example of that is the upcoming Quarterly Cannabis Caucus events that are being held all over America. One of the locations is Portland, Oregon, which I plan on attending on April 12. I hope to see you there! Below is more information about the event in Portland:

The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), the only national trade association for legal marijuana businesses in the U.S., will host an Oregon Cannabis Caucus on Tuesday, April 12, in Portland. The Cannabis Caucus is an educational and networking event designed to update cannabis professionals on the latest in policy and industry developments, while helping connect local cannabis business leaders.

Featured speakers for the event include Jake Oken-Berg from the Office of Sen. Jeff Merkley, Heather Smyth of MJ Freeway, and Taylor West of NCIA.

As Legal Weed Goes Global, International Drug Treaties Are Questioned

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

In a teleconference on Wednesday afternoon, lawmakers and policy advocates from Canada and Mexico detailed their interests in marijuana legalization and discussed the upcoming United Nations General Assembly Special Session on drugs to potentially assist in policy reform on such substances. Both Canada and Mexico have recently made strides to legalize marijuana, potentially violating international drug control regimes. Nonetheless, advocates for marijuana legalization are pushing forward and pulling no punches as they make the case for regulation, and this teleconference was no exception.

Phoning in from Canada, Liberal Parliament Member Nathaniel Erskine-Smith wasted no time arguing against prohibition. “I want to start with a simple and broad proposition… the War on Drugs is a failure,” he said, adding that “[prohibition] causes more harm” than the problems it purports to solve. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal party campaigned on the promise of legalizing marijuana before winning the election in November, but implementing that reform hasn’t been as simple as advocating for it.

Why Marijuana Reform In Professional Sports Is Important For Larger Reform Efforts

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, April, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

uncle spliffy cliff robinsonI have been writing more and more about cannabis and sports lately. It seems like every time I am on social media or turn on the television that another athlete is in the news talking about cannabis reform in professional sports. Most of the time it’s retired athletes, but even current NFL player Eugene Monroe has come out in support of cannabis reform in professional football, and even donated a big chunk of money towards cannabis research.

I think that it’s understandable why athletes are calling for cannabis reform in professional sports, especially in the NFL and NBA. Professional athletes take a pounding during their careers. Imagine taking elbows from power forwards or getting tackled by a human truck. Over and over, game after game. I am getting older and I feel some aches and pains from when I was a gym rat at the local YMCA, and I was going up against other has-beens and never-weres. I can’t imagine what some ex-professional athletes have to deal with, especially when it comes to brain injuries. That’s scary stuff, and athletes read the headlines like everyone else. If there was something out there that could help and was safe, like cannabis, I’d be calling for it too.

Opioid addiction is also a major issue in professional sports, and athletes are seeing that there’s a better way. Hearing people like former NFL player Kyle Turley talk about their battles with issues related to painkiller usage, including the fact that the pharmaceuticals didn’t fix anything, is heart wrenching. No one should be forced to live like that. Not when there’s a better way. Fortunately more and more people in that situation are discovering that cannabis is not only safer than pharmaceuticals, but it’s often more effective. Anyone and everyone, athlete or otherwise, should be able to experience relief.
