Marijuana Shop Owners Paying Taxes In Cash Because Banks Can't Take Their Money

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
Marijuana may be legal and taxed in Colorado, but the federal government still considers anyone who sells it to be a drug dealer and won’t allow banks to offer accounts to these businesses. So how is a legal businessman supposed to pay those sales tax to the state?
 
One shop owner tells Bloomberg he’s got to carry a bag holding thousands of dollars in cash to the state’s revenue department in order to remit sales tax payments.
 
“It highlights the awkward situation we’ve been placed in,” he explains. “We are paying taxes, but despite our best efforts to be good citizens, we’re still paying in cash.”
 
Since the business can’t open a bank account, it has to operate on a purely cash basis, making it a target for robbery — and just a huge pain in the butt for people keeping the books.
 
Making matters more complicated, some state and local agencies won’t accept cash payments for required taxes and licensing fees.

Vermont moves toward decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
(Reuters) - Vermont's legislature on Monday approved a bill that would decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, a measure the state's governor expects to sign into law in the coming weeks.
 
The move sets up the New England state to be the 17th in the United States to remove criminal penalties for having small amounts of pot. It does not go as far as Colorado and Washington, which in November became the first states to legalize possession, cultivation and use of marijuana by adults for recreational use.
 
Vermont's House of Representatives on Monday gave final approval to a proposal to remove criminal penalties for adult possession of up to one ounce (28.3 grams) of marijuana and instead penalize with a civil fine, similar to a traffic ticket. Persons under age 21 caught with pot would be required to undergo substance abuse screening.
 
The House's action upheld changes to the bill last week by Vermont's Senate, including a provision that decriminalized possession of up to five grams of hashish, a potent pot derivative.

Tommy Chong Says Marijuana Helped Him Beat Cancer

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, May, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
One half of the famous “Cheech and Chong” comedy team says he has beaten prostate cancer, thanks to the use of marijuana.
 
Earlier this week Tommy Chong posted on CelebStoner that he had “kicked cancer's a**!”
 
“So the magic plant does cure cancer with the right diet and supplements,” wrote Chong.
 
Chong is crediting his recovery with the somewhat unconventional methods of his Canadian doctor, who treated his cancer with “hash oil” and encouraged him to change his diet. He also said a number of sessions with Adam Dreamhealer, a man whom he described as a “world-renowned healer”.
 
Last June, the 74-year-old comedian was diagnosed with cancer after a three-year period in which he said he had been drug free.
Chong said he is 99 percent free of the disease.
 
“I'm due for another blood test, MRI, etc., but I feel the best I've felt in years,” he wrote in his post.
 
Chong, who revealed in June 2012, he was using cannabis to treat his cancer, said in an interview with CNN, that legalizing marijuana “means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”
