Will Arizona Legalize Marijuana In 2016?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, October, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
az-legalize-mj-in-2016Arizona is on my list of states that have a great chance of legalizing marijuana in 2016. The Marijuana Policy Project recently announced that they are ramping up efforts there. If Oregon, Alaska, and Washington D.C. can approved marijuana legalization next month during the 2014 Election, it would increase the chances for other states to follow suit in 2016 such as Arizona. At least one Arizona lawmaker wants to introduce a marijuana legalization bill next session. Per The Joint Blog:
 
Arizona State Representative Ethan Orr, a Republican, has announced that he will file a proposal to legalize cannabis early next year. Although no specific details were given on what exactly the bill will do, Orr says it will be modeled after cannabis legalization initiatives which were approved in Colorado and Washington State in 2012.
 
Last month, Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) of Arizona officially launched its campaign to legalize cannabis in the state, with the group planning to put an initiative on the 2016 presidential election ballot. Orr’s goal is to have his proposal approved into law before MPP’s initiative is put to a vote.
 
According to polling released last year by the Behavior Research Center, 56% of those in Arizona support the legalization of cannabis.
 
Whenever a politician says they want to do something before the citizens initiative process does, it makes me skeptical. For all we know Mr. Orr wants to legalized marijuana, but only CBD. Recreational CBD of course would not help nearly as many people as true legalization. Fortunately, if Mr. Orr’s plan sucks, the citizens can always be working in the background with the help of the Marijuana Policy Project to put something on the ballot that is better if need be.

Aurora's First Marijuana Shop Opens

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
first-mj-shop-in-co-aurora-opens-upAURORA, Colo. (CBS4/AP) - Aurora’s first recreational marijuana store opened on Monday in a converted bank building that boasts built-in security.
 
Euflora, which has a downtown Denver location already, delayed opening by two weeks, as the company completed necessary renovations Aurora asked for, including parking lot and green space improvements.
 
“The fact that we were two weeks delayed was a little disappointing, but the fact that we’re going to be the first to open is extremely exciting to us,” owner Jamie Perino said. “There’s just a lot of details that they’re looking at.”
 
The first of two expected Euflora stores in Aurora debuted at 10 a.m. on Monday in the 6200 block of South Gun Club Road. The company plans to open another Aurora location on South Buckley Road and East Quincy Avenue.
Perino said the company will staff 30 employees once its third store opens.
 
Aurora has granted licenses to 21 recreational marijuana dispensaries. The city has not yet added a local sales tax onto statewide sales and excise taxes of 27.9 percent. But Aurora voters will consider extra 2 percent local sales taxes on ballots next month.
Statewide, Colorado has more than 250 licensed recreational pot shoyyps.
 
Aurora didn’t allow medical marijuana sales but has decided to allow recreational marijuana. Denver requires stores to close at 7 p.m., but Aurora allows stores to stay open until 10 p.m.

Alien Bubba - Hybrid

This hybrid marijuana strain is the result of crossing the stable Bubba Kush with Alien Kush. The Kush x Kush blending brought about a solid variety that can grow in both indoor and outdoor setting. It can also thrive in the use of other growing mediums like hydro as well as adjust to monster cropping techniques and training imposed by expert growers. Mostly indica in its genetics, this weed plant grows to a medium height and has the tendency to be bushy with side branches stretching sideways and might need to be trimmed periodically.

Local Cannabis Shops Boost Econom

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
local-cannabis-shops-boost-economyThe cannabis industry is set to make people a lot of money. From the trimmers to the growers to the dispensary owners, the leaves of the plant aren't the only green things flying around these days. There's hundreds of millions of dollars sitting out there waiting to be made and since Colorado made the move to legalize two years ago, they've really begun to see how the weed business is benefiting them in more ways than ever imagined.
 
Revenue wasn't something that people doubted but the amount of it wasn't expected. Raking in well over a million dollars in taxes within the first few days of the legal cannabis stores, people were shocked at how much money a single plant could make a state in such a short amount of time. And the money just keeps coming. With Denver being one of the hottest marijuana tourist spots in the US, surpassing even California in the "Places Stoners Want To Visit", it's no surprise that added benefits are coming from the pot shops located in the mile high city.
 
The Colorado Harvest Company is a marijuana shop in Denver and Tim Cullen, the co-owner, recently commissioned a study to find out how much his company was making Denver financially. Jack Strauss from the University of Denver helped to do the study and found that Cullen's two shops have generated more than six times the sales of average retail stores in the city. Not to mention the pot shop had eight times the economic impact as the regular retail shops. If we're going to talk about jobs here as well, we can't neglect to mention that Cullen's two storefronts manage to employ seven times more than an average retail store. Add in the fact that the average wage of the marijuana business is more than $17 an hour. That's more than most people working hourly jobs and that's just the average.
 
With more money going in to the economy, more people get to make more money as well. The benefit of the recreational cannabis shops is incredible. These companies are more apt to pay employees well and to put back in to the community in a positive way. Considering how much money has been put back in to the city of Denver, it would be silly to limit the potential of the recreational shops. Cannabis can fix a lot of the problems that the deterioration of society has caused. People just need to realize it's real potential.
