Dope or Rope? Feds Raid Reservation of Wisconsin's Menominee Tribe

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

DEA agents raided the reservation of Wisconsin's Menominee Indian Tribe last week, destroying what federal authorities say was a crop of illegal marijuana— but tribal authorities say it was a field of industrial hemp.

Acting U.S. Attorney Gregory Haanstad said agents executed a search warrant and seized about 30,000 marijuana plants weighing several thousand pounds. But tribal chairman Gary Besaw is flatly contradicting this.

"I am deeply disappointed that Obama administration has made the decision to utilize the full force of the DEA to raid our Tribe," Besaw said in a statement, according to Milwaukee's CBS 58. "We were attempting to grow industrial hemp for research purposes in accordance with the farm bill."

Voters asked to let state keep tax money from marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

Among the decisions Colorado voters will make in voting that ends Nov. 3 is how to allocate $66 million collected from retail marijuana taxes.

If voters approve Proposition BB — the Colorado Marijuana TABOR Refund Measure — the state retains the money. If it is rejected, the revenue will be refunded to the marijuana industry and taxpayers.

The state estimates each taxpayer would receive about $8.

Under Article X of the Colorado Constitution — generally referred to as the Taxpayer Bill of Rights — voters must ratify any new taxes.

In 2013, voters approved Proposition AA to establish excise and sales tax on retail marijuana. Proposition AA was required as a result of Amendment 64, which legalized the sale and consumption of retail cannabis to adults 21 and older.

Just Days Before Election Day, Polls Are Very Close For Ohio Marijuana Legalization Initiative

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, October, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

ohio signIt’s only 9 days until the 2015 election in Ohio. Marijuana legalization is on the ballot in Ohio, in a form that has not been seen before in marijuana politics. Parts of ResponsibleOhio’s marijuana initiative have created a lot of outcry from voters and specifically reformers. From what I have seen on social media and blogs, there is more support for the initiative than ever before. That’s certainly not to say that the initiative isn’t without it’s opposition from within the marijuana community, because there absolutely is. But it seems to be less prevalent than before, with many nationally known reformers expressing that they would ultimately vote for the initiative.

But that growing level of support seems to not have translated to voters in Ohio. Two polls were recently released which found the initiative to be in a deadlock, with the difference between yes and no falling well within the margin of error. One of those polls was conducted by the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics University of Akron. The poll found out the following:

• Overall, pluralities of registered voters are supportive of Issue 2 (monopoly), 40 to 28 percent with 32 percent undecided.

• Overall, registered voters are evenly divided on Issue 3 (marijuana), 46 to 46 percent with 8 percent undecided.

• Nearly two-fifths of registered voters see Issue 3 (marijuana) as the most important measure on the 2015 ballot, followed by one-third who see local tax levies as the most important.
