Philadelphia Mayor Says State Should Legalize Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The mayor of Philadelphia says Pennsylvania should legalize marijuana so police don’t have to expend resources on busts like the one in his city over the weekend.

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney says Saturday’s raid at a warehouse hosting a pot-smoking party might have been “overkill.” Police arrested 22 people and seized more than 50 pounds of marijuana. About 175 people were allowed to leave without charges.

The mayor says he understands why police busted the party, citing the large amount of marijuana present and potentially dangerous conditions in the building.

But he says marijuana legalization is “the real solution.”

In 2014, the city made possession of small amounts of the drug punishable only by a citation and a fine, but marijuana sales weren’t decriminalized.

Marijuana poised to steal market share from the alcohol industry. A new study from OutCo and Monocle Research shows 51% of millennials in California will replace alcohol with marijuana.  While this is something many have wondered about, particularly with the passing of so many new cannabis laws in the last election cycle, this is the first actual study that TWB has seen about this subject matter.

According to the press release:

OutCo, a Southern California-based, fully vertical cannabis company, has partnered with Monocle Research to conduct a new report on the growing use of cannabis in California and its impact on the alcohol industry. The study revealed a sea of change is coming with California millennials saying no to alcohol and yes to marijuana. Research further indicates this shift will continue to rise which could have a significant impact on the alcohol industry.

Study: Medical Marijuana Could Save Medicaid $1 Billion

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana is a drug. This nobody can deny. Look: there it is—marijuana!—on the country’s Controlled Substances Act, the list of America’s most dangerous drugs.

But when they’re not being bad, drugs are also medicine. And, in the 28 states where medical cannabis is legal, so is marijuana. In those 28 states, something interesting happened over the past decade: sick people on Medicaid filled fewer prescriptions—so fewer prescriptions, that if medical marijuana were available in all 50 states, Americans would save more than $1 billion on Medicaid costs, according to a new study.

By now, it’s no secret that cannabis is useful for many of the ailments associated with aging and accompanying serious diseases including chronic pain and cancer (two common ailments for which the typical pharmaceutical cocktail prescribed by a doctor will include some kind of opiate).
