Colo. to waive marijuana taxes for one day

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER Colorado’s unusual tax law is forcing the state to suspend taxes on recreational marijuana for one day.

The sales-tax break on Sept. 16 will shave $20 off the price of a mid-grade ounce of pot in the Denver area, where ounces this summer sell for about $200 before tax.

It’s unusual for a state that has many times rejected sales-tax holidays on things like school supplies, clothing or energy-efficient appliances. Officials say it could cost the state $3 million to $4 million.

“At first I was in disbelief we were doing this,” said Cheri Hackett, who owns Botanacare, a dispensary in the Denver suburb of Northglenn. “Once our lawyer said, ‘No, we really are doing this,’ we started getting ready. We’re thinking there will be huge crowds.”

Hackett is printing signs to alert customers to the holiday and is trying to boost inventory for a one-day crush of business.

Vietnam Veteran Denied Medications Because He Has Marijuana In His System

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

Denied stampWhen you’re sick and there is medicine that can help you, and the consumption of that medicine doesn’t hurt anyone, I think you should be able to use that medicine. It seems like a simple principle, but for some reason cannabis opponents can’t seem to fully agree with that statement. They think that the statement applies for some medicines, but not all medicines. And in the case of a Vietnam veteran in Topeka, Kansas named Gary Dixon, marijuana opponents feel that he shouldn’t have any medicine at all because he tested positive for consuming cannabis within the previous 30 days preceding the test. He went to fill his prescription at the Topeka VA and was denied. Per ABC 2:

“I went in to get a refill on my pain medication and they refused to let me have it, because I have marijuana in my blood,” Gary Dixon, Vietnam veteran.

Gary Dixon is a 65-year-old disabled Vietnam veteran. While in Vietnam he was exposed to Agent Orange.

“I hurt, and I hurt from something I got fighting for my country,” says Dixon.

Now he’s got stage four lung cancer, doesn’t have much time left to live and readily admits to smoking marijuana.

A suffering patient who served our country proudly cannot get his prescriptions filled simply and only because he has cannabis present in his system. What kind of country do we live in? This story is absolutely disgusting. If I had stage four cancer, you better believe I’d have cannabis in my system too, in addition to whatever else I thought would help my situation. If anyone disagrees with that, they don’t have any compassion at all as far as I’m concerned. I hope that national media and organizations will pick up this story and spread it far and wide to help bring attention to Mr. Dixon’s situation.



UK: Parliament to Debate Marijuana Legalization

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

In response to a public petition demanding that the United Kingdom repeal prohibition, Parliament has announced that it will put the issue of marijuana legalization up for debate at the beginning of next month. 

Reports indicate the House of Commons is scheduled to discuss the possibility of legalizing a nationwide cannabis industry on October 12. This discussion is expected to cover a wide range of topics from how to handle the cultivation and retail sale of marijuana to determining appropriate possession amounts for personal use.

This debate, which will be overseen by Labour MP and longtime medical marijuana supporter Paul Flynn, is the fortunate byproduct of a young student from Aberystwyth University, who blew an international legion of marijuana activists away by successfully collecting well over 150,000 signatures in support of pot legalization within just a few days. 

His parliamentary petition was simple. It suggested that the legalization of a substance that has been banned throughout the nation since 1925 could generate millions of dollars in tax revenue and create thousands of new jobs.
