Category: Events | Posted on Sun, May, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

norml scholarships drug policy reform conference

The NORML Legislative Fly-In in Washington, DC is less than one week away. Please join NORML in this call to action.*

If you’ve not pre-registered for the May 20th cannabis lobbying training and messaging day, please do ASAP by going here. The conference schedule and speaker list are online.

NORML activist and leadership awards, a silent auction and social on Thursday night are all on tap (so to speak…).

Marijuana is becoming legal in our lifetimes. Please join us at the nation’s capitol and help hasten these long-needed public policy reforms by lobbying your elected policy makers.

*There are over 40 million cannabis consumers in the United States (according to government data) and NORML knows that 99.99999% of these direct stakeholders are not going to come to Washington to lobby on cannabis law reforms next week, but, that does not mean they can’t be active on May 21st-NORML Lobby Day-contacting their federal policymakers (one congressperson and two senators)

If you and your cannabis tolerant friends and family can’t join us in Washington, D.C. next week, please consider, for the day, being a ‘virtual lobbyist’ for cannabis law reform. To do so, please visit NORML’s Take Action Center

Thanks in advance and hope to see you next week in Washington (where the possession and use of cannabis by adults over 21 years of age is legal).

Sea Weed? Packages of Marijuana Wash Ashore in 2 States

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) -- An Alabama man stumbled upon a 10-pound package of marijuana that washed up on the beach.

Multiple news outlets report that Ron Smith was taking a morning walk near the Cotton Bayou Beach access in Orange Beach on Tuesday when he noticed what he thought was a seat cushion floating in the water.

Upon closer inspection, he realized the package was actually a bag full of compressed marijuana.

Smith called police, who picked up the package. Authorities say the bag weighed 10 pounds and was worth about $8,000.

WECT-TV reports that another package of marijuana washed up along a beach in North Carolina on May 10. That package contained more than 12 pounds of marijuana. Atlantic Beach Police say Tropical Storm Ana likely washed the package ashore.

NY pushes back medical marijuana deadline

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

ALBANY The state Department of Health has pushed back a deadline to apply for a license to grow and distribute medical marijuana.

The new deadline for businesses seeking one of five licenses statewide is now June 5, according to a notice posted Friday to the health department's website. It had previously been May 29.

The state said the delay is the result of a high number of questions about the application process and is pushing back the deadline to provide answers.

The state expects to award five contracts to private marijuana growers, who will each be permitted to open up to four dispensaries and distribute the drug to patients in New York certified by their doctors. It's estimated to take about nine months to grow the marijuana.

"Due to the number of questions received, the department has extended the date upon which it will post answers to May 21, 2015. The department is also extending the deadline for submission of applications," the Department of Health's notice reads.

"Applications for Registration as a Registered Organization must be received by the department on or before June 5, 2015. The deadline for issuing registrations has not changed."

The state opened up the application process last month for its new medical marijuana program, which is required by law to launch by January. Each license holder will be permitted to grow the drug and set up four outlets to dispense it to patients with serious illnesses or conditions.
