New York Attorney Offering Litigious Revenge for Losers of State’s Medical Marijuana Lottery

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

In anticipation of the seething aftermath that is likely to follow the New York State Department of Health’s selection of only five companies to cultivate and supply the entire state with medical marijuana, one Long Island lawyer says he is prepared to step into the ring on behalf of those businesses that get rejected. 

When the state announces the winners of the medical marijuana licenses later this month, attorney David Marquez believes there will be “38 pissed off companies” ready to duke it out with an establishment that cost them millions of dollars and then left them with nothing to show for it. Earlier this week, Marquez told the Village Voice to spread the word to the losing members of the NY cannabis community: “If you believe you’ve been discriminated against in the licensing process, come see us.” 

Indeed, a vicious backlash of angry applicants is possibly only days away from erupting across the state, a swelling of corporate tempers that will undoubtedly result in litigious revenge. All of the companies interested in producing and selling medical marijuana in the state have been forced to open their checkbooks to the tune of obscenity in terms of the amount of cash they have been required to put up, simply for an opportunity to play the game.

Bay Area Pot Company Sends Doctor To Your House

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

A Bay Area medical marijuana company is hoping to turn the industry on its head, by sending the doctor and the pot right to your doorstep.

"Meadow is medical marijuana on demand," said David Hua. His website,, is a one-stop shop for legal cannabis.

In 1996, California voters passed Proposition 215, making the Golden State the first to allow medical use of marijuana. Since then, 22 more states, the District of Columbia and Guam have passed similar laws.

In August of 2013, the federal government relaxed drug enforcement in states where marijuana is regulated. The move opened the door for businesses like Meadow to operate legally.

Meadow's newest program is called Cannabis MD. They send a medical doctor to your door to talk about cannabis.

"Typically, I'll come in, introduce myself to the patient, we'll sit down and I'll talk to them quite a bit about what they are looking for relief from," said Dr. Dan Price.

Senate Committee Approves Marijuana Banking Bill

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana cash industry bankingThe Senate Appropriations Committee approved a measure Thursday (16-14) that is intended to ensure marijuana businesses have access to banking services.

The amendment, offered by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) to the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill, would prohibit the Treasury Department and its enforcement arm, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network or FinCEN, from using federal funds to punish banks that provide financial services to marijuana businesses that are operating legally under state laws.

Many banks are currently unwilling to provide depository and other basic banking services to marijuana businesses because the substance is still illegal under federal law. Federal, state, and local law enforcement and other government officials say marijuana businesses need to have access to banking because operating entirely in cash raises significant public safety concerns.

The House is unlikely to consider its own Financial Services bill, so it is unclear whether the amendment will be included in any final compromise legislation that is sent to the president.

Earlier this month, Sen. Merkley introduced the Marijuana Business Access to Banking Act, which would amend federal banking laws to prevent banks from being punished for providing services to state-legal marijuana businesses. The bill is co-sponsored by Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Rand Paul (R-KY), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Patty Murray (D-WA).
