The rise of legal weed in America

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

A majority of the U.S. population now has access to legalized cannabis in some form. What's the track record so far? Here's everything you need to know:Where is weed legal?


Recreational use is now fully legal in eight states plus Washington, D.C., after voters in California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine approved marijuana ballot initiatives earlier this month. On Election Day, voters in Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota brought the tally of states with legal medical marijuana to 28. Though cannabis is still illegal under federal law, Election Day was widely considered a tipping point for the legalization movement. A recent Gallup poll found that 60 percent of Americans now approve of legalizing marijuana, and there is a growing bipartisan consensus that the $1 trillion war on drugs has failed. Criminalizing the use and sale of drugs has sent millions of nonviolent criminals to prison — a disproportionate number of them black — and empowered violent drug cartels. At the same time, there is growing scientific research showing that casual cannabis use by adults is fairly safe — less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco. Another major factor propelling legalization is that states can tax it and get a big boost in revenues. As one pro-legalization ad in Colorado put it: "Jobs for our people. Money for our schools.

The dispensary had been raided the day before by Toronto police.

Where marijuana is the doctor's orders, will insurers pay?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, November, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Early this year, a disabled former automobile body worker named Greg Vialpando explained to lawmakers in New Mexico how medical marijuana helped his chronic back pain.

State legislators were considering a bill backed by workers' compensation insurers that would have exempted them from paying for medical marijuana. But Vialpando described how smoking the drug let him escape years of stupor caused by powerful prescription narcotic drugs known as opioids.

The lawmakers ended up dropping the bill, and Vialpando's expenses for buying marijuana are covered by insurance.
