Pot Possession Expungement Bill Finally Becomes Law in Maryland

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Maryland’s Senate Bill 949 went into effect on October 1. The long-debated bill will make it easier for people who have been convicted of marijuana possession to clear their records.

Prior to the bill’s passage, anyone convicted of cannabis possession was required to wait 10 years before applying for expungement, despite the fact that Maryland decriminalized possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana in 2014.

Now, the waiting period to apply for expungement has been reduced to four years following conviction.

Senator Brian Feldman, who sponsored the piece of legislation, said the bill aims to help people who were convicted for using or possessing marijuana before it was decriminalized.

“We shouldn’t have folks, particularly younger folks, prejudiced,” Feldman said. “This is real-world stuff, and it just seems incongruent to have on the books prospectively that this is no longer a crime and yet have thousands of young Marylanders hampered with this criminal record.”

San Diego finalized its legalization of marijuana cultivation and manufacturing Tuesday, becoming one of the few cities in California to have a fully regulated supply chain for the drug.

Making indoor pot farms and manufacturing sites for edible products legal will boost the economy, create jobs and improve the quality and safety of local marijuana, City Council members said before approving the legislation in a 6-3 vote.

Opponents also said city officials didn’t solicit enough public input when crafting the new legislation, contending the local marijuana industry was allowed to have too much influence.

FDA Intends to Look into Medical Marijuana Claims

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Good news, if it’s true. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb might start looking into medical marijuana’s many claims.

“I see people who are developing products who are making claims that marijuana has antitumor effects in the setting of cancer,” said Gottlieb at a hearing before Congress this week. “It’s a much broader question about where our responsibility is to step into this.”

OK, let’s do this. May we suggest, Dr. Gottlieb, that you get in touch with a few scientists and colleagues to help you out with this important job?

How about Dr. Orrin Devinsky, who is working on cannabis-based anti-epilepsy drugs for children at New York University Langone Medical Center?
