Marijuana Entrepreneur Needs Salespeople, 'Who Have Smoked Weed And Can Talk About Our Products'

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

Nicole Gonzalez spent her teenage summers working in the Dominican Republic and Central America where her grandfather owned tobacco fields. Cigar-making was a male-dominated industry but her strong-willed mother always told Nicole, “You better be big in this world.” That motivation propelled Nicole and her husband Ata, both in their twenties at the time and without college degrees but both entrepreneurs, to move from Florida to California to join the budding marijuana industry in 2009.

 

Today the pair own and operate G Farmalabs, a marijuana grower, processor, and manufacturer of cannabis chocolates and other products, employing over fifty people in Anaheim California and selling to about 600 dispensaries. The company’s sales were more than four million dollars in 2014 and Gonzalez expects that number will at least double this year.

Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee: Marijuana Dispensaries Testify Oct 27

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

michigan capital marijuanaBelow is the Notice of Scheduled Meeting for the Senate Judiciary Committee on October 27. Although House Bills 4209/4210/4827 are not officially listed on the notice, Committee Chair Senator Rick Jones will once again take controlled testimony from select groups regarding the proposed changes to the Michigan medical marijuana laws contained in those bills.

Scheduled to give presentations during that meeting are Robin Schneider and Doug Mains on behalf of the National Patients’ Rights Association, a Michigan organization mostly composed of dispensary owners; the Michigan Cannabis Development Association, a group of dispensary owners who used to be in the NPRA; Helix TCS, an outstate security firm “run by former decorated military and law enforcement personnel”; and the Evergreen Management Group, led by former candidate for US Congress, George Brikho.

In the last meeting of the Senate Judiciary, three corporations gave presentations on various systems designed to comply with proposed state regulations requiring a seed-to-sale tracking system and potential takeover of the state’s patient registry database. BioTrack THC from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, offered two programs to the Senators: a system that monitors growing locations themselves (1,400 units in place across the USA) and a system for seed-to-sale tracking of commercial cannabis production (in place in N.Y., Illinois, Washington and New Mexico).

Study: As Pot Prohibition Slowly Becomes Thing of the Past, Consumers Less Likely to Abuse It

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

The outcome of legalizing marijuana has not had the effect that prohibitionists warned and expected. The behavioral and psychological problems that they feared would follow legalization have not materialized.

Contrary to what prohibitionists tend to assume, the increase in pot-related problems following legalization are not proportional to the increase in consumption. In a recent article, Forbes pointed out that people prone to excess are less likely to be deterred by prohibition than people with more moderate habits.

That being the case, problematic users likely represent a smaller share of cannabis consumers after legalization than they did before, which means marijuana’s benefit-to-cost ratio has improved, Forbesnoted.  

A recent study published in JAMA Psychiatry provides some evidence that as the number of cannabis consumers increases, the percentage of those who experience serious cannabis-related problems will decline.
