Bill would let poisons be used on Medical Marijuana plants

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
AUGUSTA -- Medical marijuana dispensaries would be allowed to treat plants with certain low-risk pesticides if a bill enacted by the Maine Legislature on Friday makes it into law.
The bill, L.D. 1531, an emergency measure sponsored by Sen. Thomas Saviello, R-Wilton, a former chairman of the Maine Board of Pesticides Control, passed the House of Representatives without a roll-call vote on Friday. The Senate passed it on Thursday.
 
It would take effect as soon as Gov. Paul LePage, whose administration supports the bill, signs it.
 
Saviello's bill would narrow broad Department of Health and Human Services rules that haven't allowed dispensaries to treat marijuana plants with any pesticide, even a natural substance such as vegetable oil.
 
"Having anything in your arsenal is better than having nothing," said Glenn Peterson, owner of Canuvo, a dispensary in Biddeford. "It's a good thing."
 
The department supports the bill, even though the loophole came into play publicly after its March investigation of the Wellness Connection of Maine, the nonprofit operator of four of Maine's eight dispensaries, in Portland, Hallowell, Thomaston and Brewer. That investigation found 20 violations of state law and program rules at Wellness Connection, from pesticide use to security breaches to a managerial conflict of interest.
 
The state said nine types of pesticides were used at the group's Auburn cultivation site, violating medical-marijuana program rules that say no pesticides are allowed.

Alaska: Push to Legalize Marijuana Begins

The state will be the next battleground in the effort to legalize marijuana. Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, whose office oversees elections, certified a ballot initiative application on Friday that would make it legal for adults to possess up to one ounce of marijuana. Supporters will have one year to collect 30,169 signatures from qualified voters across the state to get the question on the ballot. They aim to do this by January.

 

The effort in Alaska comes after voters in Washington State and Colorado legalized marijuana last year. The proposal would make it legal for those 21 and older to use and possess up to an ounce of marijuana, though not in public.

Time to Legalize Cannabis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, June, 15th 2013 by THCFinder

Legalize-it

In the famous words of Peter Tosh, “legalize it, don’t criticize it, legalize it and I will advertise it.”

The marijuana industry is one that is becoming undeniably profitable and marketable. As activists and anti-prohibition legislatures have been doing their best to decriminalize our beloved cannabis plant, the war on drugs might be finally making some positive changes within the next decade, or so we hope. The many medical and industrial applications are enough to change the world. In 2006, a statement was released that marijuana is the number one cash crop above soybeans, hay and corn. The United States annual domestic cannabis revenue is $36,803,591,000.00. In addition to the amount of money cannabis rakes in every year, it is a plant that can be completely utilized, stalk, leaf, flower, and seed. The stalk is where the fibrous material of hemp is extracted and can be used for apparel, rope, canvas, paper, insulation, mulch and many other products. The leaves and flowers are where the majority of the THC is held and are generally used for consumption, recreationally and medicinally, through smoking, vaporizing, oils, and butter, just to name a few. The seed is probably one of the most diverse parts of the cannabis plant. Aside from the obvious function of procreation, the seeds can be used to produce animal feed and birdseed, soap, hair product, lotions, cosmetics, balms, varnishes, ink, fuel, solvents, lubricants, putty, cooking oils, vitamins and many other various types of helpful items.

In a statement issued in 2012, studies have shown that the United States is populated by almost 313 million people. Of that population, 10% or 32.7 million people, have been reported as using cannabis regularly. The true number is likely more than 10%. Every 36 seconds, a marijuana related arrest occurs in the United States and billions of dollars are wasted every year on these incarcerations as well as these arrests. With all of these statistics and figures being thrown at us almost daily from both sides of the war, it is not surprising that many just choose to remain apathetic and simply hope for the best. This approach has gotten us nowhere fast. If you are a cannabis user and believe in the magic of marijuana, then get up, stand up and don’t give up the fight.
