Ohio marijuana proposal in danger of falling short

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, July, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

CINCINNATI — The marijuana legalization effort in Ohio is in danger because it does not have enough signatures yet to put a measure on the Nov. 3 ballot.

“We’re coming in lower than we were expecting,” said Ian James, executive director of ResponsibleOhio, the private investor group that wants to legalize marijuana this year.

Ohio’s secretary of state is expected to announce as early as Monday whether ResponsibleOhio gathered enough valid signatures of registered Ohio voters to get the measure before voters in 2015. ResponsibleOhio needs 305,591 signatures to qualify. On June 30, the group turned in 695,273 signatures with the goal of ensuring it would have the right number, 50%, to qualify.

In four southwest Ohio counties, final counts show the petition campaign had a majority of valid signatures only in Warren County, at 53%. Hamilton County had a 33.74% validity rate. Butler and Clermont counties came in at 41%.

If the secretary of state finds that ResponsibleOhio did not get to 305,591, the group has 10 calendar days to send out its army of signature gatherers in hopes of hitting the target.

Washington Compliance Checks: 19 Of 157 Recreational Marijuana Stores Sell To Minors

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

selling marijuana to minorsIn May I wrote an article talking about how recreational marijuana stores that sell to minors hurt the entire industry, and the movement as a whole. The article came after four stores in Washington sold recreational marijuana to minors during compliance checks. Sadly, the last round of compliance checks in Washington resulted in significantly more failures. Every instance is a black eye on the industry and the movement. Below is more information, via a Washington State Liquor Control Board e-mail:

In the first complete round of compliance checks of retail marijuana retail stores, 19 Washington recreational retail marijuana businesses sold marijuana to an underage investigative aide. Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) enforcement officers working with underage investigative aides, checked each retail marijuana business for sales of marijuana to minors. The checks essentially represent an 88 percent no-sales-to-minors compliance rate.

“Our goal is 100 percent compliance,” said WSLB Board Chair Jane Rushford. “While perfect compliance is always a challenging goal, it is clearly in everyone’s interest that our licensees be vigilant about preventing underage sales.”

The 19 businesses will be cited for selling marijuana to minors. The individuals who sold the marijuana will be referred to their respective prosecuting attorney’s office for potential criminal prosecution.

Hawaii To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Fifteen years after Hawaii legalized medical marijuana, Governor David Ige signed the state’s medical marijuana dispensary bill into law, which will allow eight dispensaries to begin selling medical marijuana by November 2016. 

Until now, Hawaii’s 13,000 licensed patients had to grow their own pot or buy it on the black market.

Gov. David Ige also signed an accompanying bill that bans discrimination against medical marijuana patients. 

The new law prohibits counties from enacting zoning regulations that discriminate against licensed dispensaries and production centers. It also allows for the legal transport of medical marijuana in any public place, under certain conditions by qualified patients, primary caregivers or owners/employees of medical marijuana production centers and dispensaries.

“I support the establishment of dispensaries to ensure that qualified patients can legally and safely access medical marijuana,” said Governor Ige, as reported in MauiNow.

“The bill sets a timeline,” Ige said in a statement. “We will make a good-faith effort to create a fair process that will help the people most in need.”
