Tampa Decriminalizes Marijuana Possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, March, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

While Florida still considers any person caught holding a little marijuana a low-level criminal, a number of municipalities across the state have made it their mission in recent months to do away with the penalties associated with minor possession. The most recent is the City of Tampa, where Mayor Bob Buckhorn has signed a measure into law that will prevent those people busted with small amounts of weed from being thrown in jail.

On Monday, the mayor put his signature a popular ordinance that will give the Tampa Police Department the freedom to hand out citations to petty pot offenders instead of running them through the criminal justice system. The new law comes just a week after the city council put their seal of approval on the measure in a vote of 5 to 1, suggesting that any amount of marijuana under 20 grams should be handled with a simple fine.

Minnesota marijuana company battles Google

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

A Minnesota-based medical marijuana company says Google is blocking its attempts to advertise online.

Vireo, the parent company of Minnesota Medical Solutions, tried to take out a series of online ads in New York, where it operates four clinics and is one of several companies chosen by that state to grow and manufacture medical cannabis. Each time, Google rejected the ads, citing its policy against promoting “dangerous products or services.”

On Monday, the company expanded its online advertising efforts to include the two Minnesota clinics operated by Minnesota Medical Solutions. Enrollment in Minnesota’s medical cannabis program remains relatively low — 1,133 patients since legalization last July. But Vireo announced that it would also attempt to place “Minnesota-targeted Google ads to make it easier for Minnesota patients to learn about using our medicines.”

United States Adult Use Marijuana Sales Are Up 232%

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

ArcView Market Research, the leading publisher of cannabis market research and information in partnership with New Frontier, the cannabis Big Data and analytics authority, today released the full 300+ page version of the 4th edition of the State of Legal Marijuana Markets, which shows that the legal cannabis industry is one of the fastest growing industries in America with a compound annual growth rate of 31%. The official 2015 ArcView market estimate has been increased to $5.7 billion, up from $4.6 billion in 2014. This was fueled primarily by explosive growth in adult use market sales, which grew from $374 million in 2014 to $1.2 billion, a 232% year over year increase.

“If all 9 states with ballot initiatives this year were to pass those laws, 9 in 10 Americans will live in a state where the use of cannabis in some form is legal. That is a staggering number when you realize that it was only two years ago that Colorado was the first state to fully legalize, and last year they generated nearly a billion dollars in marijuana sales,” said Troy Dayton, ArcView CEO.
