This Is Marijuana Legalization’s New Enemy Number One

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

For many years, the biggest threat to marijuana legalization and fledgling legal cannabis businesses was the police.

Fears of DEA agents breaking down the front door at dawn, prosecutions in federal court with its accompanying mandatory minimums or warrantless visits from helicopter-riding police who merely cut down plant and leave—such things happen and are legal—was what kept people involved in cannabis up at night.

But now, with legalization sweeping the country and a vast majority of Americans in support of medical marijuana, the real enemy is revealing itself.

And as recent events in Arizona demonstrated, it’s Big Pharma.

Legislative strategies may prevent federal crackdown on marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

  • So, about those states' rights...

We're about two months into the era of Republican-controlled federal government, and the sky hasn't yet fallen on legal marijuana. The new attorney general, former U.S. Sen.

States with legal recreational weed all report doing fabulous things with the revenue they generate from this new and lucrative industry—fund schools, hospitals, rehab centers, shelter the homeless. The list is long.

Now, South Dakota’s voters are contemplating the same savvy move: boost funding for schools and teachers and reduce the sales tax burden by supporting a ballot measure to legalize recreational weed.

Under the proposal, South Dakotans (over 21) could legally possess and use one ounce of cannabis or grow five plants; non-residents would be limited to a quarter ounce. It’s a start.

As part of the measure, if enough petitions are signed in time for the 2018 ballot, sales and excise taxes could flow to the Department of Education for teacher’s salaries and school supplies; the Department of Health for drug prevention and abuse education; and to law enforcement agencies to help police illegal drug use and sale.
