Drug War Film Screening In Missouri Makes News

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
mi-marijuana-filmOn Monday, we hosted a screening of the Reason Foundation’s new documentary America’s Longest War in Joplin. After the film, local cannabis law reform activist (and former Show-Me Cannabis Regulation board member) Kelly Maddy facilitated a Q&A session between the audience, film co-producer and Reason Foundation President David Nott, Trish and Daryl Betrand of Springfield, and myself.
 
The event drew over 60 attendees, including several members of the Alliance of Southwest Missouri, which considers cannabis to be “a concern and threat to the safety and well being of families” in the area. Before the meeting, the Alliance sent out a press release describing what they see as the harms of cannabis, and during the Q&A those members in attendance asked a number of pointed questions of the panelists.
 
Although I’m sure my perspective on the issue still differs from theirs, I am very pleased that they took the time to consider our point of view and attend the event. I firmly believe that the truth is on our side, so I welcome any opportunity to discuss it with those individuals who disagree or are undecided.
 
The Joplin Globe also took notice of the event by publishing three full articles on the subject. First, they published my editorial on the failure of the drug war in the Sunday edition. On Monday, they gave some advance coverage of the film and our efforts in Missouri. Finally, the day after the event, they ran a front page story right above an article on recently announced Senate hearings on the federal response to cannabis legalization at the state level.

South Jersey to get 2nd marijuana center

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sun, September, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
south-jersey-dispensaryBELLMAWR — Compassionate Sciences announced it will build South Jersey’s second medical marijuana facility in Camden County.
 
Work on the Bellmawr project began after the nonprofit won zoning and construction approvals from the municipality and the state reviewed its business plans, spokesman Andrei Bogolubov said.
 
The dispensary and a nearby growing facility will be located in an industrial area just off Route 42. Another medical marijuana dispensary is located in Egg Harbor Township.
 
Once construction is complete and the center receives regulatory approval from the state, Compassionate Sciences can start dispensing marijuana to patients and their caregivers who have registered with the state Department of Health.
 
Bogolubov estimated it could be six months before the center opens its doors at 111 Coolidge Ave. The facility has enough capacity to serve up to 3,000 patients.

arrested-for-mmjFormer WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres was arrested for marijuana possession in Indiana last week. The 32-year-old posted a $1,500 cash bond, according to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department. His booking was posted as part of the department’s arrests between August 24-25, according to MMA Junkie.
 
Torres made his WEC debut on September 5, 2007 at WEC 30. He defeated Jeff Bedard by triangle choke submission at 2:30 in the first round, improving his professional MMA record to 33-1. His sole loss at that point was to Ryan Ackerman at IHC 6: Inferno in November 2003.
 
Torres got his revenge two years later at IHC 9: Purgatory, defeating Ackerman by arm bar submission at 4:45 in the first round. Miguel Torres won the bantamweight championship in his second WEC fight, defeating Chase Beebe by guillotine choke submission at WEC 32 on February 13, 2008. He successfully defend his title three times before losing it to Brian Bowles by at WEC 42 on August 9, 2009. Bowles beat Torres by KO at 3:57 in the first round. After WEC merged with the UFC in October 2010, Torres made his promotional debut at UFC 126 on February 5, 2011.
 
He defeated Antonio Banuelos by unanimous decision. He lost his next fight to Demetrious Johnson by unanimous decision on May 28, 2011 at UFC 130, bringing his record to 39-4. Torres was released from the UFC on December 8, 2011, after quoting the Comedy Central series Workaholics on his Twitter account.
 
The quote read, “If a rape van was called a surprise van more women wouldn’t mind going for rides in them. Everyone likes surprises.”
