Medical Marijuana on Probation? Courts Saying Yes!

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Probation is a far preferable alternative to incarceration for minor crimes. It’s 20 times cheaper for the state, which doesn’t have to pay to keep a low-level offender behind bars. That money can then be spent fixing schools or filling potholes, making life better for citizens.

And probation is better in every way conceivable for the offender, who can live at home and go to work and otherwise not have his or her life utterly disrupted by a spell behind bars, while still paying a debt to society.

But what if one of the terms of your probation was that you had to live in chronic pain, suffer abdominal cramps or be unable to sleep or eat? In other words, what if the state had the power to tell you, sure, you can stay out of jail, but you can’t use your medication—and if you do, and you’re caught, you’ll go there anyway?

You can imagine the outcry if the criminal justice system instructed AIDS patients to ditch their retrovirals or cancer patients to take a few years’ break from radiation. Yet the state can, and does, impose such restrictions if the medication is medical marijuana.

Category: Events | Posted on Fri, January, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

While many of the conferences and expos have flocked to Nevada this year after the passage of Question 2, the second Imperious Expo is coming to Arizona after a successful launch in Tacoma, WA in 2016.

Now that Prop 64 has passed in California, Arizona arguably has the best medical market in the whole U.S. Your Green Contractor was one of the many exhibitors at the Tacoma show and will be returning to exhibit at the Expo in Phoenix.

“Your Green Contractor exhibited at the inaugural Imperious Expo in Tacoma. Eric [the Expo’s organizer]and his team did a great job organizing, promoting and hosting this professional event! In addition to the diverse group of speakers, there was positive energy in the exhibit hall, making it a great place to collaborate, reconnect and meet new folks in the industry.

As Weed Prices Drop, Growers Try to Cut Costs and Increase Efficiency

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, January, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Weed prices are falling, as formerly illegal pot growers are coming in from the cold and investing the money they’d been stashing under their pillows into legal grow sites—thus pushing up supply while making less money for cultivators.

An analysis by Bloomberg Markets views this as an opportunity for companies to cut production costs and focus on efficiency.

“Anybody that is investing in this sector or starting a business in this sector needs to be doing so with the understanding that the price of cannabis is going to drop precipitously,” said Troy Dayton, CEO of Arcview Group, a California-based cannabis investor group. “The agricultural technology space is already booming, and now they get to lay their hands on the cannabis industry.”
