White House Warns: Fed Crackdown on Recreational Marijuana Coming

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

America is in the throes of an opiate overdose epidemic with no end in sight. So President Donald Trump’s administration, which has yet to make a single misstep in domestic or foreign policy, is set to launch a federal crackdown on marijuana legalization, the White House suggested on Thursday.

During his daily briefing session with reporters, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that the states enjoying tax revenue and job creation after legalizing cannabis will likely see “greater enforcement” of federal law banning marijuana in every shape and form.

Spicer also contradicted known science and medical research by tacitly pinning the blame for the country’s heroin problem on marijuana.

“We need to have that conversation, because we know that there are associated costs with setting up the medical marijuana program,”Belatti told Hawaiinewsnow. “There is a delicate balance that we’re trying to strike.”

The amount of the proposed tax increase is still unknown.

Arkansas Medical Marijuana Laws See Amendments to Original Legislation

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

While Arkansas remains the first state in the Deep South to approve medical marijuana, obstacles remain as Arkansas medical marijuana laws see amendments to the original legislation being debated. This month, two such medical marijuana-related bills were finally approved. They bring with them amendments to the original version, passed by 53 percent of Arkansas voters.

Thursday afternoon Senate Bill 254 was approved by the Senate Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee. The Baxter Bulletin reports that it now is on it’s way to the Senate for a vote, and would give the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission the power to allow a dispensary to grow a limited number of marijuana plants if the commission felt that it was in the best interests of citizens.
