Medical marijuana dispensaries a signature away from legal in Ore.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-in-oregonSALEM, Ore. (AP) — Medical marijuana dispensaries are a signature away from being legal in Oregon.
 
The state House of Representatives approved a bill Saturday to establish a licensing system for medical marijuana outlets. The bill, which passed 32-27, now goes to Gov. John Kitzhaber to sign.
 
Current law requires medical marijuana cardholders to grow the weed themselves or find someone to grow it for them. The bill would enable cardholders to purchase the drug from state-licensed medicinal pot shops.
 
Supporters say legalizing dispensaries will make it easier for the state's nearly 55,000 medical pot users to get their medicine and harder for the black market to get its hands on Oregon weed.
 
Some opponents argue the bill doesn't have enough teeth to go after people who abuse the state's medical marijuana program.

MARIJUANA GROW HOUSES: How many plants are too many?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-grow-houseHopefully you will remember the story The Press-Enterprise wrote about the houses in Eastvale that had been converted into marijuana grow-houses.
 
We also wrote about the Special Enforcement Team deputies who uproot these operations.
 
Well, the other day we received an email from an anonymous person who mentioned these Eastvale farming operations and correctly pointed out that there is no limit to the number of plants you can grow for medicinal-marijuana use. Good enough.
 
I ran this person’s letter past a law-enforcement officer I know, and he pointed out something that the letter-writer left out: Why, if these people who are growing marijuana in Eastvale are doing so for legitimate medicinal purposes, did they illegally bypass the electrical system? And why did they damage the property they were renting by making wholesale changes to the house?
 
Anyway, here is the letter from the marijuana advocate, word for word. These are his opinions, not ours.
 
“City to pass anti-pot growing ordinance soon. The City needs to be very careful in doing it so they don’t trash the rights of qualified patients who grow their own lawful medicine. One size does not fit all. Not everyone who uses med marijuana is a pot head, a drug addict, or to ‘get high’.
 
“Take caution and Note that Prop 215 does not establish any limits on where or the amount of med marijuana qualified patients can cultivate for themselves; none whatsoever. The Legislature tried to limit how many plants can be grown by a qualified patient, and the state Supreme Court ruled that was an “unconstitutional amendment of Prop 215″ because the voters did not vote on any such numerical limits; People v. Kelley.

Petitioners Hope to Legalize Marijuana for Recreational Use in Alaska

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
alaska-mjANCHORAGE, Alaska — Supporters of an initiative that would create a legal market for marijuana in the state are at the beginning of a long campaign to get more than 30,000 signatures and allow Alaskan voters to decide next year on marijuana legalization.
 
Petitioners began collecting signatures across Alaska about a week ago for a law regulating the sale and consumption of marijuana for recreational use.
 
Officials say it will take 30,169 signatures from at least 30 out of the 40 districts around the state to put the initiative on the ballot in August 2014.
 
Petitioners say they reach an average of 300 signatures a day and hope to meet the minimum required by December.
 
The official deadline is set for January 15th, the first day of the 2013 legislative session.
 
While petitioners believe they will be able to get the number of signatures needed, the debate surrounding the controversy continues.
