Portland Police issue a very Portland guide ahead of marijuana legalization

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Oregon is just days away from legalizing recreational marijuana, and the Portland Police Bureau is explaining just how much weed you can carry in the most Portland way possible -- by comparing it to a Voodoo doughnut. 

You can legally carry an ounce of marijuana in public, or about the size of a voodoo doll doughnut. You can have 8 ounces with you at home, and anything over that is illegal (that's a lot of doughnuts).

On a more serious note, you can be arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants or get a citation for using in a public place. Along those lines, if you do see someone using marijuana in a public place, police urge you NOT to call 911, unless there is an immediate public safety risk.

At Salem medical marijuana dispensary, a sense of relief

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

SALEM — It was 40 minutes past 10 a.m., and already roughly two dozen patients waited in line. They had come for the start of business Wednesday at Alternative Therapies Group, the first dispensary to sell marijuana for medical use in Massachusetts. Patient number one was a gray-haired man with a walker.

Access to the dispensary is by appointment only. A police officer stood by the entrance to the old brick factory building, and a private security guard checked off patients’ names from a clipboard as they waited under crystal blue skies.

Voters in November 2012 overwhelmingly approved medical marijuana in a statewide ballot initiative. But the awarding of dispensary licenses quickly became mired in controversy under the administration of Governor Deval Patrick, with questions about conflicts of interest and political favoritism. The system, stalled for months as patients grew increasingly frustrated, was recently revamped and streamlined by Governor Charlie Baker’s administration.

Now, nearly three years after the vote, medical marijuana is legally available to the 18,000 people who, according to state records, have the required physician certifications.

Vancouver Becomes First Canadian City To Approve Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

vancouver bc medical marijuanaMedical marijuana dispensaries are technically illegal in Canada according to the federal government there, but that hasn’t stopped medical marijuana dispensaries from popping up all over Vancouver. I saw something similar happen throughout Oregon prior to the Oregon Legislature passing a bill to license and regulate them. Medical marijuana dispensaries are not going away in Canada, which is something that the Vancouver Council realized when it approved a measure today that would license and regulate medical marijuana dispensaries in Vancouver. Per theMontreal Gazette:

Vancouver council Wednesday passed rules regulating marijuana pot shops, instituting high licence fees and rules around where the shops can be located.

Struggling to balance the fact that marijuana is illegal in Canada while Vancouver has witnessed an explosion of at least 100 “medical marijuana” shops, a divided council approved rules to license the shops, under strict conditions.

In passing the rules, however, they amended the regulations to give compassion clubs a major break in licence fees, dropping it to $1,000 a year from $30,000 for all others.

Underpinning the city council’s decision to regulate pot shops is the argument that the city is not trying to legalize marijuana, but rather regulate businesses operating in Vancouver.
