Alaska Officials to Issue Cannabis Licenses this Week, Retail Outlets to Open by Year’s End

Almost two years after voters in Alaska legalized cannabis, the state’s Marijuana Control Board says that they’ll be approving applications and issuing licenses this week allowing for the opening of cannabis retail outlets.

The Board anticipates that most of the outlets will be open sometime before the end of the year, something that’s feasible given that licenses for cultivation facilities and testing labs were approved in June.

Once these cannabis stores are open, they’ll be authorized to legally distribute cannabis to anyone 21 and older. The Board plans to also discuss this week whether or not it will allow patrons of these locations to legally consume onsite, something that isn’t allowed under current rules.

Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Law: Here’s What You Should Know

Although Ohio’s newfound medical marijuana law will officially hit the books on Thursday, this means very little for patients needing immediate, legal access to the herb. In fact, no cultivation sites or dispensaries are expected to get down to business for another two years, which, unfortunately, puts those residents who are interested in participating in the program in a tough position: Do we wait out the system, or engage in the dangerous practice of smuggling in marijuana from a legal state?

When Governor John Kasich put his signature on House Bill 523 earlier this year, making Ohio the 26th state in the nation to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program, it came with a provision that allows the would-be-patients of the Buckeye State to obtain cannabis products from legal states—like neighboring Michigan. But the language of the law has confused many of the state’s residents (at least those without a law degree), which could potentially lead to some people catching some heat from the federal government.

The American Legion Wants Marijuana Reclassified to Help Treat PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

These aren't your filthy hippies and stoners looking for an excuse to toke (not that there's anything wrong with that!): The American Legion is calling for the federal government to reclassify marijuana to acknowledge its potential benefits as a medical treatment.

As Jacob Sullum previously noted, The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is stubbornly refusing to change the federal classification of marijuana as a drug that has no "accepted medical use" until science proves them wrong. Fortunately they're easing off on the Catch-22 situation that has resulted in this classification making it extremely difficult for researchers to perform the very scientific testing that could determine marijuana's medical value.
