Should Marijuana Be Legalized and Taxed?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, February, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
It is time again to end a useless prohibition, according to two legislators who have proposed legalizing marijuana.
 
Rep. Edith Ajello and Sen. Donna Nesselbush announced Wednesday they have proposed legislation to legalize marijuana possession in Rhode Island for adults age 21 and older. Pot would be regulated and taxed similar to alcohol under their proposal. The legislation follows last year's decriminalization of marijuana possession in Rhode Island, due to go into effect this spring.
 
“It is time for Rhode Island to put the failed policy of marijuana prohibition behind us and adopt a more sensible approach just as our nation did with alcohol 80 years ago,” Ajello said in a prelease. “Regulating marijuana like alcohol will take marijuana sales off the street and put them in the hands of legitimate businesses that would face real disincentives for selling to minors. These new businesses will also create jobs and generate much-needed new tax revenue.”
 
Under the Marijuana Regulation, Control and Taxation Act, Rhode Islanders over 21 would be permitted ton have up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to three marijuana plants in their homes.

Michigan Supreme Court: Medical marijuana dispensaries not allowed

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, February, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
In a 4-1 decision, the state's highest court affirmed an Appeals Court finding that Michigan's 2008 medical marijuana law does not allow people to sell pot to each other, even if they're among the tens of thousands who have state-issued marijuana cards.
 
"The Court of Appeals reached the correct conclusion that defendants are not entitled to operate a business that facilitates patient-to-patient sales of marijuana," the court's majority wrote.
 
The state's marijuana law makes no mention of dispensaries, nor does it indicate how people should get the drug. It says people can possess up to 2.5 ounces of "usable" marijuana and keep up to 12 plants in a locked place. A caregiver also can provide marijuana.
 
Matthew Abel, a Detroit attorney who specializes in medical marijuana law, said now the issue of dispensaries has been settled, it is time for Michigan lawmakers to weigh in.
 
"This is the end of the road. This is it," said Abel, whose firm is known as Cannabis Counsel PLC. "It will be a mess until the Legislature clarifies what kinds of business entities are allowed to exist."
 
The Supreme Court said Compassionate Apothecary in Mount Pleasant can be shut down as a "public nuisance."
 
The business' owners had claimed they weren't doing anything illegal because the law allowed for the "delivery" and "transfer" of marijuana. The business allowed its members to sell marijuana to each other, with the owners taking as much as a 20 percent cut.

Bubblegum OG

Category: Nugs | Posted on Fri, February, 8th 2013 by THCFinder

Bubblegum OG - Hybrid

The Bubble Gum originated in India in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name "Bubble Gum" has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.

Discovery channels new series is "Pot Cops"

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
When one thinks of California, images of gunfire, booby traps and deadly cartels don’t usually come to mind. However, the Discovery Channel is aiming to expose the state’s dark side in the new series “Pot Cops,” which follows a drug enforcement unit in Humboldt County, Calif. who work to bring down both cartels and the “average Joe” growers operating in the area.
 
And that’s no easy task.
 
“The drug trafficking organizations that generally come from Mexico will sometimes put booby traps coming [for] people that are trying to steal or for law enforcement trying to eradicate their crops. A drug cartel is a serious criminal organization, there’s a lot of money to be made and when there’s a lot of money to be made, there is a higher potential for violence,” SWAT team member, Deputy Greg Musson – who stars in the show – told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “Obviously there is a level of the unknown… One of the guys on the team and on the show has been involved in a shooting during a marijuana crackdown.”
 
“Pot Cops” will give audiences an unprecedented look at what it takes to conquer growers who are running a large weed farm in the Redwoods and shooting at local children on a reservation, as well as a bizarre, slow-speed chase of a stoned grower and investigations into parents who may be putting their own children at risk while hiding a huge grow somewhere in the surrounding hills.
