Florida Could Decide on Recreational Marijuana in 2016

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, September, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

While the Florida state legislature continues to talk in circles around the issue of pot reform, a legion of cannabis activists have come forward with a ballot initiative aimed at legalizing recreational marijuana in 2016.  Regulate Florida, an organization seeking to repeal prohibition in the Sunshine State, received word last week from state election officials that their master plan to put the issue of legal weed on the ballot in the next presidential election had been approved. 

This is big news for Florida voters who were already planning to head, full throttle, into the polls next year to cast a favorable ballot for United for Care’s proposal to establish a statewide medical marijuana program. Ultimately, as long as the forces behind Regulate Florida manage to collect the necessary 683,149 verified signatures, the voting population could likely be in a position to decide on whether they would prefer to legalize cannabis solely for medicinal purposes or go for broke, unleashing the herb altogether, by supporting a regulatory model that would allow cannabis to be sold in a manner similar to beer. 

Tallahassee attorney Bill Wohlsifer and longtime cannabis advocate Michael Minardi penned the proposal, aptly deemed the “Florida Cannabis Act,” in war dance against the state legislature, which has proved sufficiently inadequate at launching even the simplest CBD-only market, not to mention their complete disregard in 2015 for even considering the reform of marijuana laws.

Tommy Chong launching YouTube show amid cancer battle

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, August, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Cannabis comic Tommy Chong isn’t letting cancer slow him down, launching a new YouTube show this fall called “Almost Legal.”

“It’s a stoner’s version of Jon Stewart,” he tells us, saying they’ll discuss “anything that affects the pot smoker’s status in any way, negative or positive.”

Chong, who has undergone chemotherapy for rectal cancer and is facing surgery in six weeks to remove the tumor, says marijuana for cancer treatment is his biggest topic.

“I’m in the middle of an experiment,” he explained, saying he’s taking marijuana, “orally and topically, and I have the blessing of all my straight cancer doctors.”

Chong touts pot’s use as a painkiller.

“I’ve been offered a lot of exotic painkillers that give you a tremendous drug habit,” he said. “I’ve been using pot instead . . . and that’s been the most beneficial.”

For awhile now Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) has had a distinction that no other state’s medical marijuana program has – it allows non-Oregon residents to become a patient or grower in the program. There are multiple states that recognize out of state medical marijuana cards, but Oregon will allow you to become a patient in Oregon (but has never recognized out of state medical marijuana cards). There are not a lot of out of state patients in the OMMP, but there are some nonetheless. Per Oregon Live:

Beginning Jan. 1, the Oregon Health Authority will stop issuing cards to patients without Oregon addresses. The rule is a response to a law passed this year by the Legislature requiring in-state residency.

Medical marijuana growers, who supply the dispensary market as well as individual patients, will also fall under new residency requirements. Starting July 1, new medical marijuana growers have had to demonstrate that they’ve lived in Oregon for two years.

According to the latest Oregon Health Authority data, about 71,000 people are registered as patients; about 1,900 have addresses outside of Oregon. The bulk of patients living outside of Oregon come from California, Idaho and Washington, according to state statistics. The list includes, famously, the singer Willie Nelson.
