On Ballot, Ohio Grapples With Specter of Marijuana Monopoly

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

COLUMBUS, Ohio — As a member of theInternational Cannabinoid Research Society, a collector of antique marijuana apothecary jars, the founder of an industrial hemp business and “a pot smoker consistently for 47 years,” Don Wirtshafter, an Ohio lawyer, has fought for decades to make marijuana legal, calling it “my life’s work.”

But when Ohio voters go to the polls Tuesday to consider a constitutional amendment to allow marijuana for both medical and personal use, Mr. Wirtshafter will vote against it.

Issue 3, as the proposed amendment is known, is bankrolled by wealthy investors spending nearly $25 million to put it on the ballot and sell it to voters. If it passes, they will have exclusive rights to growing commercial marijuana in Ohio. The proposal has a strange bedfellows coalition of opponents: law enforcement officers worried about crime, doctors worried about children’s health, state lawmakers and others who warn that it would enshrine a monopoly in the Ohio Constitution.

Meet Jeff Mizanskey At The Industry Celebration And Benefit Event In Vegas Next Month

Category: Events | Posted on Sun, November, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

jeff mizanskey dan vietsI am a big fan of Jeff Mizanskey. For those that are not familiar with Jeff Mizanskey, he was sentenced to life in prison in Missouri for non-violent, marijuana-only offenses. After serving over two decades of that prison sentence, and after a very concerted effort by cannabis activists and his family, Jeff Mizanskey was freed earlier this year. Since then Mr. Mizanskey has been making public appearances all over the place, and it makes my heart skip a beat each time I see his name on a schedule.

The 4th annual Marijuana Business Conference and Expo is coming to Vegas next month, and as part of the event Marijuana Business Daily is putting on a celebration and fundraiser for reform organizations, and Jeff Mizanskey is going to be the special guest of the evening (go get ’em Missouri!). I was able to get press passes to the conference, but as of right now don’t have tickets to this fundraiser. If that changes, I hope to see as many TWB readers there as possible. Tickets are $125 a piece, so hopefully I can scrum up some funds between now and then. I don’t normally have extra money, but all the proceeds from this event go to reform organizations, so if I have to collect pop cans to get in there, then so be it. And if not, you should still go to shake Jeff Mizanskey’s hand! Below is more about the event, via the event’s webpage:

Join us for an unforgettable evening of celebration and networking, and help raise over $100,000 toward ending cannabis prohibition!

Phoenix marijuana convention draws job seekers, entrepreneurs

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

PHOENIX — More than 2,000 people attended the inaugural Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo at the Phoenix Convention Center this past week.

Some came to hawk their products. Some came to learn more about the future of the cannabis business. And some came to find jobs.

Culinary student Lyberty Wester said she picked up business cards from area dispensaries that make chocolate products because she’d like to become a chocolatier. But her options are limited in Arizona.

“It’s a little more difficult to think about even trying to be a cannabis chef because it’s a specific product, and that product isn’t legal (recreationally),” she said.
