Pot Is Making a Comeback in Colombia

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Things are changing in Colombia, where drug traffickers, guerrillas and military groups once terrorized everyone from peasants to politicians. At the center of the violence, most would argue, were drugs—mostly cocaine but also pot.

Now, medical marijuana entrepreneurs are coming out from the shadows. According to Colombia’s constitution, weed cultivation and consumption is legal for medicinal purposes, although the Health and Social Protection Ministry has not yet created regulations for prescribing treatments, Camilo García, executive director of the Colombian Cannabis Research Center, told OZY.

Patients in need of medical pot have been pushing the Colombian government to reform laws and lift all restrictions. A bill introduced last year was endorsed by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, as well as a majority of Colombians.

Although some Colombians see legalization of medical marijuana as opening the door to recreational use, others worry that keeping it under-regulated could have more serious outcomes.

LAW ENFORCEMENT: Marijuana seizures increasing

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

A new Riverside County ordinance intended to curb for-profit marijuana growing is set to go into effect on Thursday and sheriff’s officials for months have been issuing stern warnings to property owners that it’s illegal to grow marijuana on their land.

But the threat of a crackdown doesn’t appear to have slowed the marijuana growing.

Sheriff’s officials say they are on track to eradicate even more pot-growing operations this year than last.

“There’s no shortage,” said Lt. Paul Bennett, who supervises the sheriff’s marijuana enforcement team. “We’re very busy.”

In the first six months of this year, deputies investigated 70 cases and destroyed more than 56,000 plants.

It’s Full Speed Ahead For Marijuana Legalization In California Next Year

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

vote for california marijuana initiatives

On June 14, more than 200 people gathered at the Sebastopol Grange for a fundraiser and organizing meeting of  local pot growers, the Sonoma County Growers Association. They were being mentored by their northern neighbors from Humboldt, Mendocino, and Trinity counties, the Emerald Growers Association, which already has lobbyists in Sacramento and is in the middle of the effort to legalize weed in California next year. The Emerald Triangle is the largest marijuana growing area in the country’s largest marijuana producing state.

Two days later, more than a hundred people met in a conference room at the Oakland Marriot City Center to plot the intricacies of producing a statewide marijuana legalization initiative. For several hours, attendees—dispensary operators and employees, small growers, not-so-small growers, patients, consumers, interested citizens, even a nun—offered their input on a rapid-fire but seemingly endless array of issues related to legalization and how it should occur:

Who can grow it? How much? Where? Who can grow it commercially? Should there be tiered licensing to ensure small operators have a chance? Who can sell it? Can cities and counties opt out? Who should regulate it? How should it be taxed and how much? Where should the revenues go? Should there be amnesties or expungements of records? Should employees be protected from being fired for smoking on their own time? Should there be protections from child welfare services or family courts? Does impaired driving need to be addressed? What about medical marijuana? Should existing businesses get a priority?
