New York Will Consider Major Upgrades to Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, February, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

New York's medical marijuana program—AKA the Compassionate Care Act—which was feebly launched at the beginning of the year, not only comes with a chastity belt full of provisions that cater to only the half-dead, but the tight regulations wrapped up in this fiasco have put cannabis products mostly out of reach for the few patients who qualify for participation.

However, Manhattan Assemblyman Richard Gottfried, the lawmaker who was instrumental in the fight to bring medical marijuana to the state of New York, says he will introduce several pieces of legislation in the next coming weeks that he hopes will lead to a broad expansion to the program.

A recent article in the Village Voice indicates that Gottfried plans to submit a bill that will increase the number of cannabis producers permitted to operate across the state from five to somewhere in the vicinity of 10. The proposal would simplify the licensing process, evading a long drawn out approval period, by drawing the next selection of pot companies from the list of applicants that did not make the initial cut in 2015.

Detroit Puts 211 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries On Notice

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

detroit marijuanaAs early as this morning, medical marijuana dispensaries in Detroit will be opening envelopes containing letters from the City of Detroit regarding the city’s new registration process- and a reminder that most of them will not be in operation for very much longer.

The letter was referenced in a Powerpoint presentation created by three different divisions of government and delivered to City Council during a meeting Tuesday morning. The presentation, titled “Medical Marihuana Caregiver Center Application Process Status Report For Detroit City Council,” identifies 211 dispensary locations in the city and includes a map.

The status report also says, “Notice letters sent to all facilities on February 2, 2016, published in the Detroit Legal News and posted on the MMCC website.”

As of this writing, the letter is not easily located on any of the websites the city has created for medical marijuana caregiver centers. The Compassion Chronicles has not been able to obtain a copy.

The new medical marijuana rules will begin on March 1; any dispensary in the city has until March 31 to apply for a business license. Most of the applicants will have to apply for a zoning variance, as the city was extremely stingy on the number of locations properly zoned for the inappropriately-named caregiver centers.

California Governor Signs Bill To End Medical Marijuana Deadline

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

california governor jerry brown marijuanaGovernor Jerry Brown has signed AB 21, an urgency measure introduced by Rep. Jim Wood that repeals a March 1 deadline in the new state medical marijuana law that some have interpreted as requiring local jurisdictions to ban or regulate medical marijuana cultivation, or lose their licensing authority.

Now that the March 1 deadline is repealed, Cal NORML is calling for all jurisdictions that are considering banning medical marijuana activities to instead table the issue, and for all cities and counties to work towards land use regulations to protect patients rights, as well as public safety and the environment. ”Driving marijuana cultivation and delivery back underground will only lead to crime and neighborhood problems,” said Ellen Komp, Deputy Director of Cal NORML. ”Local officials have been calling for statewide regulation, and now that MMRSA is in place, it’s time to allow that regulation to work.”

“Thanks to Assemblyman Wood and Gov. Brown for clearing up this confusion and giving local governments time to develop thoughtful policies for regulation,” said Cal NORML director Dale Gieringer.

The state agencies charged with regulating commercial medical marijuana activities in the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) aren’t expected to issue permit applications until at least January 1, 2018, and state licenses will only be granted to those with local approval. However, a “drafting error” in MMRSA stated that cities and counties without medical marijuana ordinances on the books by March 1, 2016 would be governed by state law.
