N.J. issues permit to second medical marijuana dispensary
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, June, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
TRENTON — The state Health Department has issued a permit for the second medical marijuana dispensary to begin growing its first crop, according to one of the dispensary owners.
"It's good news," said David Knowlton, co-founder of the Compassionate Care Foundation Inc., which will operate from an Egg Harbor facility. "A lot of patients are waiting for this."
The dispensary's website said a summer opening is expected. It generally takes about three months for a crop to be grown and prepared for sale. The state Health Department must test it for mold, pesticides and potency before any is sold.
Compassion joins Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair, which opened in December and has served about 130 patients. Medical marijuana advocates have complained the Christie administration has taken too long to launch the program. Nearly 1,000 people have registered.
The Health Department issued a press release at about 4 p.m. confirming it issued the permit.
"Once Compassionate Care Foundation is permitted to operate as an Alternative Treatment Center, patients will be notified of the opening date," according to the press release. "Patients and caregivers can visit the Medicinal Marijuana Program’s website if they choose to change the ATC designated to serve them," according to the release.

Vermont Becomes The 17th State To Decriminalization
Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Vermont is now the 17th state to decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. Governor Peter Shumlin signed the bill into action after the Senate voted a 24-6 on May 7 and the House voted 98-44 on April 12. Over 60% of Vermont voters agree with the decriminalization of marijuana.
Gov. Simon talked about how this will stop the bleeding until they figure a more sensible policy. He went on to state facts most of us know. But having a Governor say these things helps our fight that much more.
Removing criminal penalties for marijuana possession slows the bleeding, but it will not stop until marijuana prohibition is replaced with a more sensible policy. Marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol, and it is time for the state to start exploring policies that treat it that way.

Jim Berns staged the stunt to publicize his intent to 're-legalize marijuana.'
A Cincinnati mayoral candidate who promised to give away marijuana plants left customers dissatisfied when they received tomato plants instead of pot.
Libertarian Jim Berns tried to woo voters with the ploy Wednesday, part of his platform calling for the legalization of the drug in Ohio.
Around 30 supporters, mainly college aged, showed up to support the candidate and dozens of people reportedly lined up to receive their plant at a city park.
Wearing an American Flag tie, the political hopeful was photographed handing out the small shrub and distributing fliers about his crusade to re-legalize the drug.
"We support people deciding themselves to smoke marijuana," the 65-year-old told the Daily News.
