Washington Bill Would Alter Marijuana Penalties, Allow Sharing

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Legislation to alter the penalties associated with possessing and transferring certain amounts of marijuana has been filed in Washington State.

The measure, House Bill 1065, received a public hearing last week in the House Committee on Commerce & Gaming; a majority of those speaking spoke in favor of the measure.

Filed by Representative Steve Kirby with cosponsor Representative Mia Gregerson, the proposal would make several positive changes, such as reducing the penalty associated with possessing over the legal one ounce limit. It would also allow those 21 and older to share up to a half an ounce with others who are 21 and older, which is currently a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

The result is a sentencing process that’s often bogged down by complex science and can yield uneven results in courtrooms around the country.

How Big Could the Opportunity Be for Marijuana Stocks in California?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

In November, Californians overwhelmingly voted to embrace pro-pot laws that clear the way toward creating the United States' biggest recreational marijuana market. Is California's marijuana market a boon to marijuana investors? Read on to see how big California's marijuana market could become.
 

California pioneered medical marijuana legalization in the 1990s, but it has been slower to endorse laws that open up the recreational marijuana market.

In 2010, California's Proposition 19 fell on deaf ears when 53.5% of voters opted against passing it. If it had been passed, Proposition 19 would've allowed Californian adults over age 21 to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana for personal consumption, and to grow marijuana in a space of up to 25 square feet.
