Washington Compliance Checks: 19 Of 157 Recreational Marijuana Stores Sell To Minors

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

selling marijuana to minorsIn May I wrote an article talking about how recreational marijuana stores that sell to minors hurt the entire industry, and the movement as a whole. The article came after four stores in Washington sold recreational marijuana to minors during compliance checks. Sadly, the last round of compliance checks in Washington resulted in significantly more failures. Every instance is a black eye on the industry and the movement. Below is more information, via a Washington State Liquor Control Board e-mail:

In the first complete round of compliance checks of retail marijuana retail stores, 19 Washington recreational retail marijuana businesses sold marijuana to an underage investigative aide. Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) enforcement officers working with underage investigative aides, checked each retail marijuana business for sales of marijuana to minors. The checks essentially represent an 88 percent no-sales-to-minors compliance rate.

“Our goal is 100 percent compliance,” said WSLB Board Chair Jane Rushford. “While perfect compliance is always a challenging goal, it is clearly in everyone’s interest that our licensees be vigilant about preventing underage sales.”

The 19 businesses will be cited for selling marijuana to minors. The individuals who sold the marijuana will be referred to their respective prosecuting attorney’s office for potential criminal prosecution.

Hawaii To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Fifteen years after Hawaii legalized medical marijuana, Governor David Ige signed the state’s medical marijuana dispensary bill into law, which will allow eight dispensaries to begin selling medical marijuana by November 2016. 

Until now, Hawaii’s 13,000 licensed patients had to grow their own pot or buy it on the black market.

Gov. David Ige also signed an accompanying bill that bans discrimination against medical marijuana patients. 

The new law prohibits counties from enacting zoning regulations that discriminate against licensed dispensaries and production centers. It also allows for the legal transport of medical marijuana in any public place, under certain conditions by qualified patients, primary caregivers or owners/employees of medical marijuana production centers and dispensaries.

“I support the establishment of dispensaries to ensure that qualified patients can legally and safely access medical marijuana,” said Governor Ige, as reported in MauiNow.

“The bill sets a timeline,” Ige said in a statement. “We will make a good-faith effort to create a fair process that will help the people most in need.”

D.C.’s State Fair will have a marijuana growing competition this year

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

It’s been five months since marijuana was legalized in D.C., and now there’s a public opportunity to show off, if you’ve been letting that liberty take root.

The D.C. State Fair — a seemingly Pinterest-inspired event showcasing the culinary, artistic and agricultural talents of the District — is adding a marijuana-growing competition to its lineup of events this year. The “Best Bud” category now joins the fair’s growing list of competitions, which already includes the honey contest, the homebrew contest, the knit and crotchet contest, the funkiest-looking vegetable contest, the pickled food contest and more. The fair also added a pet parade for the first time this year.

“Now that it’s legal for residents of the District to grow their own plants, we wanted a way to highlight this new freedom while also showing off the agricultural talents of the District’s people,” Anna Tauzin, a board member and outreach director for the fair, wrote in an e-mail. The event is held each year in September. D.C. State Fair is a nonprofit run by residents.
