Wisconsin Bill to Increase Penalties for Marijuana Possession Introduced

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
wis-mmj-lawsMADISON, WI — Legislation is pending in the Senate and Assembly that seeks to allow municipalities to penalize marijuana possession offenders in instances where the District Attorney has refused to prosecute.
 
Under state law, local governments prosecute first-time marijuana possession offenses involving 25 grams or fewer. Repeat offenses, or any offense involving a quantity of marijuana over 25 grams, is prosecuted in state court at the discretion of the District Attorney.
 
Senate Bill 150 and its companion bill (AB 164) would allow local jurisdictions to enact ordinances allowing for municipal courts to prosecute repeat cannabis possession offenders and/or those charged with possession more than 25 grams of cannabis in cases where the District Attorney has explicitly declined to do so.
 
At a time when many states and local jurisdictions are moving away from spending limited resources to target minor marijuana offenders, it makes little sense to enact legislation allowing for the continued prosecution of such persons in instances where the District Attorney has decided to forgo such actions

Washington: Bar Owner Defends Allowing Customers to Smoke Marijuana On His Premises

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-users-smoke-inside-barFrank Schnarrs, owner of Frankie's Sports Bar & Grill in Olympia, Washington, is defending what he considers to be legal activity that is taking place on the second floor of his establishment, which is adults over the age of 21 consuming marijuana.
 
Frank claims that the individuals partaking in the recreational doings are doing so legally due to the fact that the aforementioned second floor has been designated as a private club for dues paying members only.
 
Members of said club pay an annual fee of $10 to gain access to the selected smoking spot which isn't accessible to the public, but the state's Liquor Control Board claims that since Frankie's is a licensed business it is indeed considered a public establishment and he is operating outside of the law.
 
The private pot club currently generates approximately 60 percent of Frankie's income which he says has actually saved him from having to close his doors.
 
The Liquor Control Board declares they are well aware of the actions that are taking place at Frankie's, but haven't stated what steps they will take to rectify the situation.

Connecticut Sets Rules For Medical Marijuana Farms

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
ct-mmj-farm-rulesFAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Medical marijuana farms and dispensaries could be up and running in Connecticut by early next year, according to the state Department of Consumer Protection.
 
The department will start the process of issuing permits for growing and distributing medical marijuana “in early September,” Commissioner William Rubenstein said last week.
 
“It is our hope to be able to make our selections for both producer and dispensary facility licenses by around the first of the year,” Rubenstein said.
 
The Connecticut General Assembly approved the law to allow medical marijuana in May 2012, and Gov. Dannel Malloy signed the act into law that same month. The Legislative Regulations Review Committee finalized the specifics of the state’s laws on Aug. 27, allowing the department to move forward with its permits.
 
The law allows doctors to prescribe marijuana to treat 11 conditions: cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage, epilepsy, cachexia, wasting syndrome, Crohn's disease and post-traumatic stress disorder. Residents can petition the state Board of Physicians to add more conditions to the list starting this fall.
 
Prescriptions are available only to Connecticut residents over 18 years old. The law also allows patients to have a “designated caregiver” who will be able to help buy and administer medical marijuana. Under state law caregiver must be approved by the state and be a family member or legal guardian.
