Former ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ vying for state medical marijuana deal

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

A former “Wolf of Wall Street” has his eyes on another pot of gold.

Dean Petkanas’ new company is among the 43 entities vying for one of five lucrative medical-marijuana licenses in New York state — an eclectic group that includes a hospital group whose boss previously worked for an ex-governor, and two nursing-home operators who run a facility at the center of a recent scandal.

“Now it’s a waiting game,” said Petkanas, who worked for three years at Stratton Oakmont, the pump-and-dump brokerage featured in the 2013 Martin Scorsese-directed film.

He now heads Long Island-based medical-marijuana company Kanna­Life Sciences, which is eying 700 acres in Buffalo for a “green” grow site.

“If we do [get the license], great. If we don’t, we’re still there for the state of New York,” added Petkanas.

Some Alaska Marijuana Businesses Receive ‘Cease And Desist’ Orders To Shut Down Or Else

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

cease and desist marijuanaThere have been underground medical marijuana outlets and clubs for awhile now in Alaska. Alaska is like most other medical marijuana states where such entities existed, operating in what some describe as a ‘grey area’ of the law, while others call it a blatant disregard for the law. Now that recreational marijuana has been legalized in Alaska, some Alaska marijuana establishments have received ‘cease and desist’ orders demanding that they halt operations until marijuana business licenses are issued. Per the Frontiersman:

Two local marijuana-related businesses were among six that received cease-and-desist orders from the state this week.

Northern Heights LLC, a “cannabis-friendly” hookah lounge, and Discreet Deliveries, a business offering marijuana for sale and delivery, both based in the Mat-Su Borough along Bogard Road, joined businesses from Kenai and Anchorage on the list. The certified letters mailed to property owners were a follow-up to phone conversations on the subject, which alleged both businesses violated Alaska statute, according to the letters.

The cease-and-desist letters threatened “enforcement action” ranging “from criminal penalties to civil fines, tax penalties and prohibition from receiving an actual marijuana license when they become available in 2016,” the letter states.

Cannabis Cultivation Decriminalized in Spain?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, July, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

The new "Citizen Safety Law" that took effect in Spain on July 1 is notoriously draconian, making it illegal to march on public buildings, and imposing prohibitive fines for holding any protest without a permit. It also raises the minimum penalty for public cannabis use or possession from 300 to 600 euros, with the maximum penalty set at a whopping 30,000 euros for "grave infractions." 
But even this is something of a victory, as conservatives had been pressing to raise the minimum for to 1,000 euros. And there may be a more surprising bright side. According to reports on the Medical Cannabis Spain Blog and, language was added to the section of the law dealing with cultivation, saying that it will only be punishable when it is "in visible public places." The reports state that this means cultivation behind closed doors is effectively decriminalized in Spain, as private possession has been for several years.
