California cops, cities offer new medical marijuana bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 11th 2015 by THCFinder
cops-offer-new-marijuana-billWith one eye on a looming effort to legalize recreational marijuana in California, organizations representing the state's cities and police officers are pushing a Sacramento-area lawmaker’s bill to regulate medical cannabis.
 
Assembly Bill 266, by Assemblyman Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova, would set up a statewide regulatory scheme, but local jurisdictions would continue to have the final word on licensing medical marijuana growers and dispensaries.
 
For years, as legislators offered bills to impose rules on California's teeming medical marijuana industry, law enforcement remained staunchly opposed. The aversion of cops to bills they saw as further legitimizing marijuana helped sway lawmakers to vote no.
 
That changed last year with a bill backed by the California Police Chiefs Association and the League of California Cities. The legislation failed, but now Cooley is carrying a followup bill he hopes will conclude what has become a perennial debate.
 
“We keep having groundhog day. We keep running these bills and we never get closure on them,” Cooley said in an interview. “I am depending on the cities and the police chiefs to be pursuing a community set of rules they feel works from a law enforcement and a community quality of life perspective.”
 
Both Cooley and the bill’s sponsors said it is preferable to create a framework for medical marijuana now rather than risk having the rules determined via a legalization measure on the ballot in 2016.
 
“There is a continuing need to try and enact a regulatory structure that protects local control,” said Tim Cromartie, a lobbyist for the League of California Cities, “as opposed to ‘let’s start from scratch and do our own thing.’”

Jamaican Senate Says Yes To Marijuana On Bob Marley's Birthday

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 10th 2015 by THCFinder
jamaica-says-yes-to-mjJamaica took one step closer to decriminalizing marijuana and it couldn't have happened on a more fitting day -- the birthday of Jamaican reggae superstar Bob Marley, whose public embrace of cannabis made him nearly synonymous with the culture of the plant.
 
On Friday, the Jamaican Senate passed a bill to decriminalize marijuana for medical, religious and scientific purposes. The bill, which would amend the country's Dangerous Drugs Act, would reduce possession of two ounces or less of marijuana for personal use to a ticketable offense, rather than a criminal one. Cultivation of up to five plants would be permitted. Under current Jamaican law, marijuana possession charges can lead to as much as five years in prison and a fine.
 
Registered health professionals would also be able to prescribe cannabis for various ailments, and accredited institutions could conduct scientific research with the plant. For the first time, Rastafarians -- members of a spiritual movement founded on the island that sees cannabis use as a sacrament -- would be able to legally smoke the substance for religious purposes, according to the Jamaica Information Service.
 
"The objective is to provide a more enlightened approach to dealing with possession of small quantities and smoking, while still meeting the ends of justice," wrote Jamaican Minister of Justice Mark Goldberg when he announced the measure last year. "The proposed changes represent an approach which will enure to the benefit of the persons concerned and the society as a whole, and reduce the burdens on the court system."
 
The country's House of Representatives must still review and vote on the bill, the Jamaica Gleaner reported, but it is supported by Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller and is expected to pass.
 
Friday marked what would have been Marley's 70th birthday. Marley, who died in 1981 from cancer at age 36, was popular worldwide with such hits as "Exodus," "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Jammin'." He used cannabis as part of his Rastafarian religious beliefs, which held that smoking marijuana was a natural, positive part of life that helped one's spiritual growth.

Snoop Dogg Is Starting A Marijuana Investment Fund

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, February, 10th 2015 by THCFinder
snoop-dogg-starting-a-marijuana-investment-fundSnoop Dogg has been an icon in the marijuana world for more than two decades. I have seen him perform at many marijuana events. From media reports that came out this week, it sounds like he is trying to start a marijuana investment fund. That’s not too surprising considering how big his name is in the marijuana world already, and how popular the marijuana industry is becoming. There are many people scrambling to invest in marijuana companies, and even more people looking for an investor for their idea, so it’s logical that Snoop is making a move like this.
 
The details on what exactly Snoop is looking to do is not that clear right now, but the basics are that he is raising 25 million dollars, and is looking to invest in marijuana tech companies. Per Tech Crunch:
 
Sources tell us the prolific rapper, youth football coach and marijuana aficionado is putting together a fund specifically to invest in cannabis startups. According to one source, he hopes to raise $25 million to fund the nascent, but fast-growing legal marijuana industry. Because his agency is still in the process of raising the fund, its ultimate size is uncertain. His representatives did not reply to requests for comment.
 
Snoop is one of many celebrities who have begun dabbling in tech investing over the last few years. Ashton Kutcher paved the way with the launch of his A-Grade Investments fund, which has put money into companies like Airbnb, Flipboard, and StyleSeat. But lately he’s been joined by the likes of Nas, Jared Leto and Justin Bieber among others.
 
As for Snoop, his tech investing career seems to have taken off recently. Over the last few months, the rapper invested in Reddit, the so-called homepage to the Internet, as well as zero-fee stock trading platform Robinhood.
 
I’m very curious to see how well this actually works out. Yes, Snoop loves marijuana. But consuming marijuana and rapping about it is a lot different than finding the right idea at the right stage of its development and using an investment to take the idea to new heights. A lot of people are making a lot of money right now in the marijuana industry, but for every person making money, there are numerous others that are losing every penny they have on bad ideas or because of bad business practices. We will have to wait and see what ideas get investments, and how those investments pan out.
