Advocacy Group Launches The Truth About Medical Marijuana Educational Series

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

medical marijuanaThis morning Americans for Safe Access (ASA) launched the Truth About Medical Marijuana educational website and accompanying event series. The Truth About Medical Marijuana will focus on emerging issues in the area of medical marijuana, including understanding the research behind the medicine, emerging policies issues surrounding cannabidiol (CBD) and consumer safety issues. During each of the next three months, event hosts will focus on these issues and prepare attendees to share that information with politicians and key decision makers, as well as providing tools to counter misinformation in the media.

“With the majority of Americans living in states that allow at least some kind of medical marijuana it’s time to move beyond rhetoric and headlines and foster a genuine understanding of this too often misunderstood medicine,” said Steph Sherer ASA Executive Director.  ”With the Truth About Medical Marijuana, we’re filling a void by giving people straightforward explanations of the science behind medical marijuana and explaining how medical marijuana relates to them and their families.”

Medical marijuana policy has recently undergone a significant series of developments with the passage of several new state laws in a short period of time.  In total, 40 states, Puerto Rico, Guam,  and the District of Columbia allow some legal medical use of marijuana. However,  many states have new highly restrictive laws that are not well understood. In other states, large scale commercialization of marijuana cultivation has created new consumer safety concerns that haven’t been effectively addressed. ASA is kicking off the campaign with advocates hosting over 40 events in thirteen states.

Santee Sioux in South Dakota Set to Begin Marijuana Sales

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

The Flandreau Santee Sioux tribe is poised to become the first Native American tribe to grow and sell pot for recreational use, taking advantage of the Obama administration’s offer to let all 566 of the country’s federally recognized tribes enter the marijuana industry.

According to McClatchy DC, the tribe plans to sell 60 strains of marijuana and is hoping for lots of visitors to partake with them. Tribal president Anthony “Tony” Reider said sales could bring in as much as $2 million per month.

“Obviously, when you launch a business, you’re hoping to sell all the product and have a shortage, like Colorado did when they first opened,” Reider said.

Minors will be allowed to consume pot if they have a recommendation from a doctor, Reider added. Under a tribal ordinance passed in June, adults over 21 can buy up to one gram at a time for recreational use, no more than twice a day.

“We really don’t want the stuff getting out to the street,” Reider said. “So we’re going to have like a bar setting where they’ll be able to consume small amounts while on the property.”

Chris Christie to legal marijuana smokers: Enjoy it while you can because he'll enforce federal ban

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is attracting attention to his struggling presidential campaign by making it clear he doesn't want to recognize state laws legalizing recreational marijuana.

In town hall meetings in New Hampshire and an appearance on Fox News this week, Christie said that if elected, he intends to overturn state marijuana legalization laws, which have been passed in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Alaska.

"If you're getting high in Colorado today, enjoy it until Jan. 17 of 2017," Christie told an audience in Newport, N.H., on Tuesday, "because I will enforce the federal laws against marijuana as president of the United States."

Christie has long been critical of marijuana legalization, saying it can cause brain damage and lead to the use of such drugs as heroin and cocaine.  Christie has lagged in polls in the GOP presidential race in recent months but is receiving a new burst of publicity this week as he speaks out against marijuana.
