Dear Johnny:

The third round of proposed rules drafted by the Marijuana Control Board (MCB) has been issued, and those who wish to provide feedback may do so before 4:30 p.m. Thursday, September 10. The current set of rules addresses regulations related to cultivators, product manufacturing, and testing.

If you wish to be heard, please take a moment to provide your feedback to the MCB. And take a look at the campaign’s comments, available here.

As with previous rounds, most of the proposed rules are reasonable, but several areas should be improved. For example:

— The draft rules would prohibit the sale of marijuana-infused cooking oil directly to consumers — which could be burdensome to medical marijuana patients who wish to create their own edibles.

— The rules seek to impose an artificial limit on the percentage of THC available in any product, despite the fact that the federal government has approved a medicine that contains 100% synthetic THC.

— They would prohibit cultivators from allowing odors to be detected by the public, even for large operations in rural areas.

For a closer look at our comments, take a look at our letter to the board. And if you wish, you can either submit your own comments or click here to send an email to the board immediately.

Then, please forward this email to other Alaskans who support fair rules for regulating the state’s emerging marijuana marketplace.



US Sen. Elizabeth Warren Is 'Open' To Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

U.S. senator and democratic darling Elizabeth Warren has changed her stance on marijuana legalization. 

According to, she told Joshua Miller of The Boston Globe on Wednesday that she is now open to ballot questions seeking to legalize pot.

“You were opposed to legalization in 2012. As a Massachusetts voter, what’s your position today?” Miller asked Warren.

“I’m open to it,” she replied. “I think we’ve learned more. A couple of states have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Frankly, I think we ought to be learning what we can from those states.”

Warren also said that she is a proponent of marijuana research and has been "pushing the federal government" to step up its game. 

This week, the Massachusetts attorney general ruled in favor of a proposed ballot question calling for the legalization of recreational pot. Sponsors of the initiative need to gather nearly 65,000 signatures by November 28 to secure a spot on the 2016 ballot.

Legal Marijuana In Arizona Would Generate Over $60 Million In Taxes Annually, Study Predicts

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

Arizona stands to generate more than $60 million in marijuana tax revenue annually, if voters decide to legalize and regulate the plant for adult recreational purposes in 2016. 

That's according to an independent analysis released Monday by Arizona's nonprofit Grand Canyon Institute. It found the state would rake in about $64 million per year from legal marijuana taxes, including $51 million that would go to K-12 education and all-day kindergarten programs in the state. That's significantly more than the $40 million in tax revenue for education backers of the ballot initiative projected last month -- a sum thatopponents of the measure lambasted as unrealistically high and a local newspaper characterized as "a lie" in an August op-ed.

But at least according to the GCI, a research organization focusing on Arizona's fiscal and tax issues -- one that describes itself as "a centrist think-thank led by a bipartisan group of former state lawmakers, economists, community leaders, and academicians" -- the advocates were being conservative in their estimates.
