Michigan In The Top Five Medical Marijuana States

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, December, 16th 2014 by THCFinder
mi-top-5-mmj-statesA new graphic from the Marijuana Business Daily illustrates the nation’s top five medical marijuana states, as measured by public participation.
 
Created by Jennifer Mann, the graph compares states based on the number of people enrolled per one thousand residents of the state. Colorado leads all states in terms of public participation with 22.3 patients per 1,000 residents.
 
California, the nation’s oldest medical marijuana program, ranks second with  19.30, followed by Oregon (17.9) and Washington State (16.5). Michigan ranked fifth with 12.3 medical marijuana patients per 1,000 residents.
 
The US has 23 states with medical marijuana programs, not all of which are in effect yet. The Marijuana Business Daily chart considered only those states with medical marijuana programs in operation for more than one year. The national average for participation in all states qualifying for the chart was 10 patients per 1,000 residents.
 
The participation level in the Great Lakes State may be lower than anticipated, considering the maturity of the program and the size of the state. Michigan’s medical marijuana program was instituted via public vote in 2008 and the state is 9th in population nationally.

Will DC Get Legal Cannabis?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, December, 16th 2014 by THCFinder
will-dc-get-legal-cannabisEven though citizens of Washington DC voted to legalize small amounts of cannabis for personal use in November, Congress may be putting it’s foot down in spite of the results. Initiative 71 passed with 70% of voters approving the measure. But even though the people have spoken in favor of legalizing the plant, Congress is expected to pass a funding bill that they will likely vote on later this week. Considering that Initiative 71 was hoped to end racial discrimination due to biased laws, people of Washington DC are enraged at this bypass of Democracy.
 
 
Michael Collins, the Policy Manager at Drug Policy Alliance’s Office of National Affairs stated, “Democratic leadership made it clear they would stand with voters on this crucial racial justice issue and push back against Republican opposition to the DC law. Democrats have always made claims of supporting DC home rule now is their chance to stands with 70% of voters in the District who voted for marijuana reform.”
 
 
A study done in 2013 by ACLU showed that African Americans were eight times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession as compared to whites, despite marijuana use rates being the same regardless of race. With such a ridiculous difference between arrests, civil rights and other advocacy groups have signed on to an open letter, encouraging the Democratic leadership to protect the votes of DC citizens. “As you conclude negotiations over the FY15 Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill, we urge you to reject all efforts to include undemocratic restrictions on DC rights,” the letter said.
 
 
It’s sad that the voters stand to possibly lose their efforts to vote in such a sad attempt to thwart cannabis progress in the nation’s capitol. People all over the country support marijuana more than ever and advocates were really hoping for a smooth legalization process in DC. But of course, there always seems to be someone (in this case, Hal Roger, a Republican from Kentucky, and the Chair of the House Appropriations Committee and Andy Harris, a Republican from Maryland, who sponsored the amendment) who wants to cause problems and are attempting to undermine the voters choices.

Tacoma Washington May Shut Down DIspenaries

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
tacoma-wa-shutting-down-dispensariesPlans released by city leaders last week were to send out letter to cease operations at marijuana dispensaries as soon as this January, as they are not licensed under Initiative 502. For both business owners and patients, this serves as devastating news. All of the medical marijuana dispensaries in the city could be gone in early 2015. 
 
 
But while the medical marijuana clinics would close, the recreational shops in the area would remain open. For people who want to get healed rather than high, this idea isn’t great for them. Recreational shops don’t offer the same type of medicinal products that medical shops do, not to mention that the taxes are higher on recreational cannabis. 
 
 
Places like Ancient Holistic Remedies in Tacoma are extremely worried about what will happen if their shop gets shut down. “This is out apothecary,” said Kimberly Braga, the owner. “It’s our traditional Eastern apothecary and we do have cannabis.” The shop has been open since 2012, in honor of Kim’s father who died of cancer. When he was diagnosed, his treatment of choice was marijuana and Kim and her husband opened the shop in his memory. They serve a great deal of patients in the Tacoma area, like Susan Fairchild, a hairdresser that suffers from severe arthritis. 
 
 
If the Tacoma City Council reveals a plan to shut down the unregulated pot shops, however, Ancient Apothecaries and as many as 50 other shops will have to close their doors. Tacoma City Council Member Anders Isben stated, “Ultimately, with these collective gardens, we respect the work that they’ve done and the work that went in to the process but there’s just such legal ambiguity and another concern is that there’s such a proliferation or concentration of these stores in certain neighborhoods.”
 
 
Fairchild compares getting her medicine at a recreational shop to buying isopropyl alcohol at a liquor store. It’s just not something that you do. “They aren’t taking the time to see who’s doing things right and they’re going to rope us all in to the same boat and set us out to sail, which is tragic,” Braga said.

Sensi Star - Indica

Sensi Star is a great indoor plant, producing powerful, resinous, and very compact buds. Although mostly indica, she retains a complex high that affects the mind as well as the body. This headstrong indica produces rock hard colas that have a lemony scent and taste. Some smokers find the buzz to be a very strong body stone, while others report a high with more energetic, cerebral properties as well as a body sensation. THC levels have been reported at 20 percent for this variety, making it a one-hitter quitter. CBD has been measured at .9 percent.
