Florida in drafting phase to legalize medical marijuana
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
Marijuana -- a taxable form of medicine or a dangerous gateway drug?
The controversial issue has been gaining attention across the country now that 18 states are allowing it in some form.
Florida Cannabis Action Network president Jodi James said she’s an advocate for "sensible cannabis policy.”
"What’s happening right now is that people who truly need access to the medicine don’t have it,” James said.
James leads a state movement that would like to see medical marijuana legalized in Florida, just like other states.
“They regulated it, they controlled it. The sky didn’t fall down and it makes more sense for public safety,” James said.
Right now there’s an effort by Democratic Senator Jeff Clemens from District 27 from Palm Beach County to create a bill that would legalize medical marijuana.
Other bills have failed but supporters said the legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado for recreational use have opened the doors of opportunity.

Michigan state rep to introduce bill allowing medical marijuana distribution
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Mon, February, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
Here is some hope for Michigan Medical Marjuana patients in need of their meds.
Operators of Michigan's medical marijuana distribution facilities are hiding behind steel doors with peepholes and growing warier than ever of strangers after a state Supreme Court ruling this month turned them into outlaws.
That's the word from marijuana users, cannabis lawyers and operators of facilities called dispensaries and compassion clubs.
"Nobody I know in this state is advertising this service anymore -- it's all going to be word-of-mouth from now on," said Holice Wood, owner of a compassion club where medical marijuana users come to use the drug.
But a bill expected to be introduced Tuesday in Lansing could change how they operate.
State Rep. Mike Callton, a Republican from Nashville in southwest Michigan, is sponsoring a bill that would leave it up to local officials or residents to decide if they want their community to allow dispensaries and clubs -- the terms widely used in other states for shops that distribute medical marijuana.

The Battle Over Marijuana Headed To Reality TV In "Weed Country"
Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
The Discovery network is ready to shine a light on the world of the North California marijuana trade in the new reality series Weed Country. The six-part series will follow the growers, dealers, and law enforcement officers involved in the illegal marijuana industry centered in the quickly spreading area known as “The Emerald Triangle.”
The show is essentially about the “drug war” between weed growers who are constantly searching for scientific advancements to make stronger grade of weed and the cops who are on a mission to shut them down.
With the marijuana trade being an estimated $50-100 billion dollar industry in the US alone, the show will also examine the turf battles between the independent growers, and the struggles and triumphs of being in the weed business.
The legalization of cannabis has become a political hot button issue over the last several years with a lot of the prevailing trends leaning toward making marijuana legal for adults.
There are currently 20 states (including the District of Columbia) that allow the use of marijuana in some form. The most notable being Colorado and Washington whose citizens voted last November to allow persons over 21 years of age to purchase and consume cannabis for recreational use – the first such laws in the nation.
