Snoop Dogg-Backed Weed Delivery Is Coming To Los Angeles.

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, April, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

While riding Uber, a thought may have crossed your mind. Why not combine a weed delivery with vehicles and drivers flexible enough to serve all kinds of destinations? Snoop Dogg and others are aiming to make that dream come true.

The rap star is now a contributing investor in new delivery service, Eaze, which has already launched in San Francisco and is coming to Los Angeles soon. Dogg's Casa Verde Ventures is dropping a cool $10 million for a “Series A” funding round of the company, which plans to give medicinal marijuana users the ultimate quick connection to dispensaries to ease their pain. Other investors include DCM Ventures, Fresh VC and 500 Startups.

This investment will help provide up to 50 new staff and is being added to the initial $1.5 million startup so that the San Francisco-based company may continue expanding into other markets. Currently, Eaze serves 34 cities, according to a February press release.

CEO and Eaze founder Kevin McCarty says the company works only with dispensaries that offer top quality products. Delivery time is said to be a mere 10 to 15 minutes.

Dogg isn’t the only musician to position himself in the game. Weed fans can also look forward to checking out Willie’s Reserve, a marijuana brand launched by Willie Nelson, and may have to pop by a new medical marijuana dispensary in the OC opened by the Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

Vermont Politicians Want To Ban Alcohol Sales Until Marijuana Prohibition Ends

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

vermont marijuana decriminalization‘Marijuana is safer than alcohol.’ That statement has been said a lot in the last few years. It’s a statement that has been very effective in the battle to end marijuana prohibition. It’s effective because it’s true. According to a recent study, marijuana is 114 times safer than alcohol. So the fact that alcohol is legal, and even proudly consumed by many marijuana opponents, but marijuana is illegal, is a huge slap in the face to logic and reasoning.

In an effort to highlight the obvious hypocrisy that is marijuana prohibition, two lawmakers in Vermont recently introduced a bill that would prohibit alcohol sales until marijuana sales are allowed. Per The Cannabist:

Frustrated by a lack of action on marijuana legalization, two Vermont lawmakers are trying a new tack: No pot, no booze.

Progressive Rep. Chris Pearson and Democratic Rep. Jean O’Sullivan, both from Burlington, held a news conference Wednesday to announce they had filed legislation to ban the sale of alcohol in Vermont.

Both called the idea “laughable,” but said they are trying to further their arguments that marijuana is less harmful to individuals and to society than alcohol and should be legalized for adults.

The bill obviously does not have a solid chance of passing. However, it got a lot of media buzz, and I’m sure it’s got people talking in Vermont. Alcohol is very commonplace in America, and is generally accepted by most people. It’s beyond time that people realized that marijuana should be afforded that same level of acceptance and tolerance, because after all, it’s far safer.

Medical marijuana patients fret about new grower limits being considered by Oregon legislators

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

A bill that would limit the size of medical marijuana growing operations in Oregon is generating angry opposition from some patients and activists.

The proposed measure, unveiled late Friday afternoon, is aimed at curbing the black market while prodding larger growers to supply the legal recreational market the state is developing.

This approach is winning wide support on the House-Senate committee charged with implementing the marijuana legalization initiative approved by Oregon voters in November. It also has varying degrees of support from many marijuana industry figures who want to develop a successful legal market in the state.

But the 89-page amendment to Senate Bill 844 quickly created sparks among medical marijuana patients and many activists. Several legislators reported being besieged with emails and phone calls Monday from people worried that they would lose their supply of low-cost medical marijuana.

"It's going to take medicine away from the sickest and most disenfranchised patients," said Alex Rogers, who owns a medical marijuana dispensary in Ashland and has been using social media to build opposition to the proposal.

Rogers also charged that legislators were trying to rush the proposal through by unveiling the lengthy amendment on Friday and scheduling a Monday evening work session.
