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.

Bernie Sanders To Clinton – Serious Criminal Justice Reform Must Include Ending Marijuana Prohibition

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

colorado jail marijuanaCriminal justice reform is a very popular topic these days in politics. There are many politicians out there that now act like they invented the idea of reforming America’s criminal justice system, even though they were nowhere to be found on the issue in years past. But, even though they are late to the party, at least they have finally arrived at the party, so I welcome them.

But not all criminal justice reform positions are created equal. Take for instance Hillary Clinton’s stance on criminal justice reform – she claims to wholeheartedly support criminal justice reform, but does not support an end to marijuana prohibition.

But that doesn’t go far enough. You can’t fix America’s criminal justice system without addressing one of the biggest problems that is contributing to the system’s problems – federal marijuana prohibition.

That was the message Bernie Sanders put out yesterday in a press release, which is pasted below (thanks to Tom Angell for tweeting about this press release):

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday issued the following statement on eliminating sentencing disparities between crack cocaine and for crimes involving powder cocaine:

“Secretary Clinton is right. We must eliminate sentencing disparities between crack and powder cocaine. That is why I have repeatedly voted in favor of addressing this disparity.

A San Francisco dentist whose practice is in the heart of the Mission District, and who has spoken openly about the importance of good dental hygiene for pot smokers, was arrested in a New York City drug sting, court documents show.

Jerome Weitz, 63, who has been working in San Francisco since 1982, was arrested in a Yonkers, N.Y., apartment this week after allegedly being in possession of more than $10,000 cash and on his way to receive payment for a large shipment of marijuana, according to court documents. He was arrested after exchanging texts with his dealer, prosecutors said.

Weitz was arrested by the Narcotic Borough Manhattan North. A total of 11 "vacuum sealed plastic bags" weighing about ten pounds were recovered from a duffle bag in the living room where the dentist was staying, the detective wrote in documents obtained by NBC Bay Area.
