If You Are Serious About Succeeding In Oregon’s Cannabis Industry The Oregon Marijuana Business Conference Is A Must

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

ombc oregon marijuana business conferenceLast year I attended the Oregon Marijuana Business Conference, which was at that time called the Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference. The name change is a reflection of the current times, as recreational cannabis is legal in Oregon, and limited sales have been occurring since late last year. By the end of the year full recreational sales should be occurring in Oregon. Last year’s event was awesome because it took place during the lead up to recreational rule making and there was a lot to discuss.

As a lifelong Oregonian myself, I can personally say that it’s an amazing time to live in this state. There is a lot going on, and it’s very exciting. But there’s also a lot of uncertainty. Yes, there have been other states that have gone ahead of Oregon, but Oregon is going to be different, as every state will be. As the recent extract debacle showed, things are in a fragile state for the Oregon cannabis industry in its young life. Navigating the landscape is not always easy, which is why this year’s Oregon Marijuana Business Conference is so important and timely, as was last years event.

This year the event is bringing Tommy Chong and Dr. Carl Hart to Eugene, and I can’t wait to attend myself and see what they have to say. To be clear, this isn’t a sponsored post in anyway. I genuinely loved the last event I attended, and have been looking forward to this year’s event for months. Below is more information about the event. You can get tickets at a significant discount if you purchase them by April 8th:

Los Angeles Considering Using Marijuana Taxes to Help Homeless

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

Los Angeles may have devised an unusual idea to curb the homelessness rates in the Skid Rows of old Hollywood. City officials are reportedly mulling over a plan in a series of budget talks that would utilize a portion of the tax revenue generated from the local medical marijuana industry to build more affordable housing units for local residents.

Earlier last month, the local government approved an impressive $2 billion budget plan intended get the homeless population off the streets through the implementation of a new housing project. However, according to KPCC, the challenge for administrators has been in determining exactly how the city is going to finance such an extensive construction campaign.

Owner Of The Baltimore Ravens Supports Eugene Monroe As He Calls For Medical Marijuana Research

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

Steve Bisciotti baltimore ravens marijuanaWhether you are a fan of sports or not, you should be a fan of Eugene Monroe. Eugene Monroe currently plays for the Baltimore Ravens in the National Football League (NFL), and has made a lot of headlines lately due to not only his calls for more research on how medical cannabis can help players, but he also put up a $10,000 donation towards researches while challenging other members of the NFL to do the same. Eugene Monroe talks the talk, and walks the walk.

I have said it many times since Eugene started advocating for cannabis research to the media – I absolutely admire his courage. There are a lot of retired athletes that are calling for marijuana reform in sports, but they have the benefit of not having to deal with the backlash while still having to go compete. I don’t want to take away from retired players, because their message is absolutely vital to reform in sports and in society too. Retired athletes like former NBA All Star Cliff Robinsonare changing a lot of minds and helping breakdown the stigma surrounding cannabis, and not just in sports. As I’ve said before, a lot of my grandma’s most conservative friends are now on the right side of history entirely because of Cliff’s advocacy. That’s powerful stuff.

Eugene Monroe’s advocacy is just as vital, because he’s looking forward. I’d imagine he’s looking forward and envisioning what the rest of his career is going to be like, and for that matter, what the rest of his life is going to be like. Eugene Monroe has taken a beating on the field many, many times. He has been injured and has had to have surgery on his knee. As with all NFL players, head injuries are a constant concern I’m sure. So when he says that there needs to be research done to see how medical cannabis can help players who are dealing with injuries, I absolutely respect where he’s coming from.
