Marijuana Policy Project Unveils Details About Ohio Medical Marijuana Initiative

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

ohio marijuana medical marijuana legalizationOhio tried to become the first state to skip legalizing medical marijuana and go straight to full recreational marijuana legalization in 2015. That effort was soundly defeated. Immediately after the recreational marijuana legalization initiative was defeated, activists were calling for organizations to step in and put together a better effort. Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) stepped up and announced that it would be pushing for a medical marijuana initiative for the 2016 ballot. Up until today, there weren’t any details available. However, today MPP released some details, per Cleveland.Com:

The amendment will establish a system where patients with certain medical conditions can apply for a medical marijuana ID card that allows them to buy and possess marijuana. The state would license businesses to grow, process, test, distribute and sell medical marijuana, and sales tax would be applied. License fees and tax revenues would pay for the program’s administrative costs.

Kampia said patients and their caregivers could grow their own marijuana as soon as the amendment becomes law.

And there will not be a monopoly, a sticking point with the recreational marijuana amendment last year.

Oregon House Approves Marijuana Banking Reform Bill

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

banking marijuana industry bankPassing the House of Representatives with a vote of 56-3, House Bill 4094, which seeks to remove the criminal liability from state law to allow banks and credit unions to bank with, and lend to, lawful marijuana businesses, is now headed to the Senate for adoption.

“This is an important first step in reducing risk and providing security for banks, credit unions, and the public” said Tobias Read, the sponsor of the bill in the House. “Without a clear timeline from the federal government, the state needs a solution, even if it’s temporary.”

Currently, a tangle of federal laws are preventing legal marijuana businesses from accessing banking services, which shoulders them with a significant cash burden. Besides holding harmless those financial institutions that do business with the legal cannabis industry, the bill also instructs the Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS), an agency already responsible for communicating with the new industry in Oregon, to look into the state’s options for the future.

“The need for baking reforms is nothing new to the cannabis industry,” said New Economy Consulting’s Sam Chapman. “However, now that a state agency has been tasked with the collection of cannabis tax revenue, the regulators, the state, and the industry are all in the same boat. This fact should send a clear message to Congress to accelerate their work on reforming banking laws at the federal level.”
