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

Category: Events | Posted on Sat, October, 31st 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 Sat, October, 31st 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 Sat, October, 31st 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. She does kind-of sort-of support letting states legalize marijuana depending one the day of the week and who’s asking the question (as shown by her answer at the first Democrat debate versus her comments the following day during an interview). 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.
