College paid for by marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

 

New York (CNN)Starting in 2017, high school graduates in one Colorado county will be able to turn to a college scholarship funded by marijuana tax.

On Tuesday, 60% of voters in Pueblo County approved a measure that will phase in an increase in taxes — 5% by 2020 — on marijuana growers  to fund college scholarships and other community projects.   

The county is expected to raise $3.5 million with this tax increase, and at least half the revenue will go toward funding scholarships for high school graduates in Pueblo to attend local colleges. Depending on revenue, the program might be expanded in future years.  

"The whole point of the scholarship program was to make higher education a reality for families who can't afford to send their kids to school because of debt," said Paris Carmichael, a spokesperson for Pueblo County.  

According to Carmichael, this type of scholarship, funded by a marijuana tax, appears to be the first of its kind.

Fire DEA Head Chuck Rosenberg for Calling Medical Marijuana A ”Joke”

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, November, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

fired marijuana jobTom Angell and the Marijuana Majority organization started a petition today calling for the termination of employment for DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg. The petition was in reaction to Mr. Rosenberg’s recent comments that referred to medical marijuana as a “joke.” I’m encouraging everyone to sign it. Below is the language of the petition, which can be signed at this link here:

Chuck Rosenberg, acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) just made highly offensive comments calling medical marijuana a “joke.”

While it’s nothing new for drug war bureaucrats to oppose enacting sensible marijuana policies, Rosenberg’s comments go way too far.

Medical marijuana is not a “joke” to the millions of seriously ill patients in a growing numbers of states who use it legally in accordance with doctors’ recommendations.

It is not a “joke” to the growing number of prominent medical organizations — American Nurses Association, American College of Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, for example — who know that cannabis has real and proven medical benefits.

And it’s not a “joke” to the clear majority of U.S voters who support passing laws to protect medical marijuana patients from harassment by police and the DEA.

President Obama should fire Chuck Rosenberg and appoint a new DEA administrator who will respect science, medicine, patients and voters.

Colorado Edibles Recalled Due to Pesticides

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

Two large Colorado edibles companies have voluntarily issued product recalls over concerns about banned pesticides.

Edipure recalled 20,000 packages of 16 different products, including Peanut Brittle, Raspberry Jellies, Sour Gummi Bears, Rainbow Belts and a variety of licorice that had been delivered to 40 retail stores, while Gaia’s Garden recalled 8,000 packages of 21 different products, including lozenges and drops already on shelves at 176 retail locations.

Consumers are advised to throw out the edibles or return them to stores and contact the producers.

Both edibles companies had purchased the cannabis used for food production earlier this year fromTruCannabis, who issued their own recall earlier this October due to concerns over pesticide use. With no scientific studies to determine whether pesticides usually used on food crops are safe to be combusted and inhaled, the Colorado Department of Agriculture proposed a rule saying they do not recommend "the use of any pesticide not specifically tested, labeled and assigned a set tolerance for use on marijuana because the health effects on consumers are unknown."
