Why Is Facebook Taking Down Marijuana Dispensary Pages?

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, February, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana is legal in some capacity in 23 states and the District of Columbia, but Facebook doesn't seem to "like" it very much these days.

Over the past two weeks, the social media giant has reportedly been shutting down the Facebook pages of state-legal cannabis businesses across the country. While the total number of marijuana business pages that have been disabled is unclear, NBC News has confirmed at least a dozen businesses in six states that have experienced shutdowns.

From medical marijuana dispensaries in New Jersey, Arizona and Nevada to recreational shops in Oregon, Colorado and Washington state, Facebook is going after legitimate cannabis businesses for what it claims are violations of the social network's "Community Standards."

Colorado DUIs Involving Marijuana Go Down Slightly In 2015

marijuana dui duii oklahoma per seLegal recreational marijuana sales started in January 2014. That same month Colorado State Patrol started keeping track of driving under the influence arrests involving marijuana to try to spot any trends. Compared to 2014, 2015 saw a slight decrease, which I’m sure isn’t welcomed news to marijuana opponents who predicted mayhem on the roadways once legal recreational marijuana sales began. Per the Durango Herald:

Beginning in January 2014, Colorado State Patrol began tracking marijuana-related citations in an effort to identify trends. The data showed a 1.3 percent decrease from 2014 to 2015 for DUI and DUID citations involving marijuana.

Out of 4,546 citations issued for DUI/DUID in 2015, there were 347 in which marijuana was the sole indicator, and 665 instances where marijuana was one of the indicators.

But a mere two years of data collection doesn’t point to a conclusion.

“From those numbers, we know very little. They were released to provide insight,” CSP Trooper Josh Lewis said. “We don’t know if we’re going to start seeing an increase or a decrease. When we get two, three, four more years of data, we’ll find those first two years could be very different. We don’t know what way it will be trending.”

Colorado's Newest Pot Shop Tied to Strip Club and Mayor

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

GLENDALE, Colo. (AP) — Colorado's newest pot shop has some wondering whether strippers and weed are too closely aligned on a busy highway just east of downtown Denver.

The Smokin Gun Apothecary opened on a site formerly occupied by the Denver area's best known strip club, Shotgun Willie's. The strip club hasn't gone away - it's moved just across the parking lot, testing ethical and potentially legal issues about the state's growing legal recreational pot industry.

Beyond banning the sale of pot and alcohol in the same shop, Colorado has no regulation regarding marijuana and other adult businesses. Zoning rules require shops to be away from schools or anywhere children congregate.
