People are auditioning for a new marijuana reality show. Its called "The Marijuana Show"

Nearly every industry has a reality show dedicated to it.  Shipping stuff? Yes. Dog whispering? Check. Bounty hunters named Dog? Of course. Now, prospective legal marijuana tycoons can get in on the action.
 
As Fox 31 Denver reported, 200 people showed up Saturday in Denver to audition for a new, Web-based marijuana reality show named “The Marijuana Show.” (No pot puns here, folks.)
 
Here’s how it works: People pitch their marijuana business ideas to investors, who will back projects by investing $25,000 to $1 million or more, co-creator Wendy Robbins told the Fox affiliate.
 
In their online pitch, show co-creators Karen Paull and Robbins describe their project as “The Shark Tank” meets “The Apprentice,” but emphasize it’ll be more like a dolphin tank rather than shark tank. They also have a higher vision in mind: to combat negative connotations around marijuana use. “It’s really an important and potent herb and medicine and it needs to be legal,” Robbins told Fox 31. “That’s why we are doing this.”
 
“We’re the puff the magic dragon of reality pitch shows. Basically, we don’t wanna be rude,” Robbins told 303 Magazine. “It’s really about educating, and us getting educated too, the world about the whole industry.”
 
On Saturday, people pitched ideas to a panel, which will then choose six winners to head to a boot camp in New Mexico. From there, the contestants will prepare for October, when they will pitch investors back in Denver, the Fox affiliate reported. Audition pitches ranged from movie projects to a woman who wants to use cannabis in her flower shop designs, and the show will air online in November, CNN reported.

Police chief: Legalize marijuana, use tax revenue to fund drug treatment

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, September, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
legalize-mj-says-police-chiefMadison Police Chief Mike Koval endorsed the legalization of marijuana last week, saying the drug should be regulated and taxed, with revenues used to fund treatment programs for harder drugs.
 
The comments came during an interview with the State Journal Wednesday about data showing African-Americans in Madison were arrested or cited for marijuana offenses at about 12 times the rate of whites in the city.
 
Koval called efforts to enforce laws against marijuana an “abject failure,” and said the same about the broader war on drugs. “We’ve done such an abysmal job using marijuana as a centerpiece of drug enforcement, that it’s time to reorder and triage the necessities of what’s more important now,” Koval said.
 
Referring to the states of Washington and Colorado, which have legalized the drug for recreational use and sell it at state-regulated stores, he said it was time for Wisconsin to consider doing the same.
 
Koval said he would like to see the state “acknowledge the failure” of marijuana prohibition and instead focus on the “infinite amount of challenges” posed by drugs such as heroin. Taxes from the legal sale of marijuana, he said, would create state revenue that could then be used to fund drug treatment and expand the capacity of drug court programs that divert addicts from the criminal justice system.
 
Once relegated to the fringe of the political spectrum, proponents of marijuana legalization have seen their numbers swell in recent years. Along with Washington and Colorado, 23 states have legalized marijuana for medical use.
 
The cause has not advanced

Survey: 58 Percent Of Americans Say Treat Marijuana Like Alcohol

Nearly 60 percent of Americans support regulating cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol, according to an analysis of over 450,000 online responses collected by the online polling data company CivicScience over a nearly two-year period.
 
Fifty-eight percent of respondents said that they would support “a law in [their] state that would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana like alcohol?” Thirty-five percent of respondents said that they would oppose such a change in law.
 
An analysis of responses provided within the past three months found even stronger support for legalization, with 61 percent of those polled endorsing marijuana law reform.
 
Democrats, men, and those respondents between the ages of 25 to 34 were most likely to support regulating cannabis.
 
Though the CivicScience survey is not a scientific poll, its findings are similar to those previously reported by Gallup in 2013. In that poll, 58 percent of respondents similarly backed legalizing marijuana. More recently, in April, national polling data published by the Pew Research Center reported that 54 percent of Americans support legalizing the plant.
