California Marijuana Growers Have To Respect The Environment Or Get Heavily Fined

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, June, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

fined marijuana fineGrowing marijuana can be very harmful for the environment unless proper precautionary steps are taken. A lot of outdoor marijuana growers think that if they buy a piece of land, that they can do whatever they want. That is not the case, as some people in California are learning the hard way. Outdoor marijuana growers need to be good stewards of not only the land that they are growing on, but also to the ground water and waterways that go beyond their property’s borders.

A lot of growers have a ‘get mine, and the hell with yours’ mentality. They are in it for the profit, and nothing else. That’s not to say that all growers are that way, because that’s certainly not the case. But there are more than a few bad apples out there that follow practices that make it harder for the rest of us. California recently issued a massive fine to some growers that didn’t follow environmental rules. Per Courthouse News:

A California board that protects water from degradation by marijuana farms has issued its first fine: $297,400 against a landowner and a contractor in Shasta County. It’s the first penalty issued by the multi-agency Cannabis Pilot Project, staffed by state and regional water boards and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board announced the fine Friday. The Cannabis Pilot project was formed specifically to address adverse environmental impacts caused by marijuana cultivation in California

Survey Says Pot Prices Are Crashing in Colorado

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Colorado's recreational marijuana market is now over a year old, and while it continues to grow, a new survey has found that pot prices are dropping faster than most expected.

According to global brokerage company Convergex, increased competition and the expansion of grow facilities are contributing factors in the price decline, but it's also "a natural result for any maturing industry as dispensaries try to find the market's equilibrium price." 

"Since last June, the average price of an 1/8th ounce of recreational cannabis has dropped from $50-$70 to $30-$45 currently; an ounce now sells for between $250 and $300 on average compared to $300-$400 last year," Convergex reported.

But Bloomberg Business noted that even with these declining prices, this year's sales of recreational marijuana are still exceeding those of last year and the number of people visiting dispensaries has increased.

It’s Time To Enact Appropriate Job Protections For Those Who Legally Use Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

Many observers were shocked and saddened when Brandon Coats, a quadriplegic who is authorized to use medical marijuana under Colorado state law, was fired from his job with Dish Network in 2010 after a positive drug test. Dish failed to make an exception for Coats, who used marijuana while off duty to control his seizures, and the company insisted on his being fired, leaving Coats no choice but to challenge this issue in court.

Specifically, Coats claimed that his conduct should have been permitted under the state’s Lawful Off-Duty Activities Statute, which makes it an unfair and discriminatory labor practice to discharge an employee based on the employee’s “lawful,” away-from-work activities. But the trial court, followed by the Court of Appeals and now the Colorado Supreme Court, have all ruled that the statute only protects conduct that is legal under both state and federal law — and therefore offers no job protection to Coats.

“Therefore, employees who engage in an activity, such as medical marijuana use, that is permitted by state law but unlawful under federal law are not protected by the statute,” Justice Allison H. Eid wrote in the opinion.

This case highlights one of the most pressing issues that needs to be addressed in the states that have legalized medical cannabis use — and the states that have adopted full legalization for all adults, as well. Although employees are protected from arrest and prosecution under state law by these various laws, they remain vulnerable to employment discrimination in almost all states.
