Texas Preparing to Hire Pot Growers Despite a Non-Existent Cannabis Industry

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

Although the state’s attempt at launching a medicinal marijuana market is destined to provide limited opportunities for those gunning to get in on the green rush, Texas is reportedly on the verge of hiring pot growers to produce low-THC strains of cannabis oil for hundreds of thousands of patients suffering from epilepsy. However, while the news of this venture sings a sweet tune at face value, the language of the law passed earlier this year will make it difficult, if not impossible, for patients and businesses, alike, to relish in any benefits. 

In June, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a law allowing patients suffering from epilepsy to have access to cannabis oil, going a step further than states like Georgia by permitting a cultivation and distribution operation that would allow those suffering from seizures to gain access to effective medicine without traveling out of state. Unfortunately, the law was pushed through with a major flaw to its wording, which forces patients to obtain a “prescription” for cannabis oil as opposed to receiving a “recommendation”—an oversight that will force every doctor in Texas to shy away from medical marijuana. 

According to the Controlled Substances Act, “doctors may not 'prescribe' marijuana for medical use under federal law, though they can 'recommend' its use under the First Amendment."

Colorado May Ban 'Candy' Name on Marijuana Treats

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

Edible marijuana products in Colorado may soon come labeled with a red stop sign, according to a draft of new rules released Wednesday by state marijuana regulators.

The state may also ban the word "candy" from edible pot products, even if they're sweets such as suckers or gummy chews.

The new pot symbol — an octagon stop-sign shape with the letters "THC" to indicate marijuana's psychoactive ingredient — would have to be on individual edible items, not just labels. Liquid marijuana products would be limited to single-serve packaging — defined as 10 milligrams of THC.

"It's time we have a tool to really let people know there is pot in something," said Diane Carlson of Smart Colorado, a parents' group that has pushed for giving edible pot a distinct look.

Regulators rejected an earlier proposal to mark edible pot with a weed-leaf symbol after parents complained the symbol would simply attract children, not dissuade them from eating the products.

Ohio Is Likely To Vote On Marijuana Legalization This November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, August, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

Responsible Ohio LogoAccording to multiple reports out of Ohio, the ResponsibleOhio marijuana legalization initiative is going to make the ballot in 2015. ResponsibleOhio fell short of the required signatures by the original deadline, but Ohio law permits a 10 extension for one last push. Responsible Ohio needed 29,509 valid signatures in order to make the ballot, and turned in 95,572 at the end of ten day period. In most cases it would have just been assumed that the signature amount would have been enough, but due to a record low signature validation rate for marijuana legalization signature gathering efforts, no one was certain. The campaign needed a roughly 31% validation rate, and appears to have made that goal. Per WBNS-10TV:

The legalization of marijuana will be on the November ballot, according to preliminary reports of valid signatures sent by Ohio’s county board of election offices.

With 48 counties out of 88 reporting their preliminary totals, a 10TV survey reveals ResponsibleOhio will exceed the number of required signatures.

The initiative will not be officially on the ballot until Ohio’s Secretary of State says so, which is expected by the end of the week. If that proves to be the case, Ohio will get a chance to be the fifth state (and D.C.) to legalize recreational marijuana. As with every other marijuana legalization initiative that has ever made the ballot (assuming it does, which I think is safe to say at this point), ResponsibleOhio’s initiative is not without it’s controversy. I’m sure most readers know by now about the ‘ten for profit entities only’ provision of the initiative, which obviously stinks. But is that enough to allow people to be arrested for two more years until maybe, hopefully another initiative gets polling, language, and funding in place?
