Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair Is Coming To The Oregon State Fairgrounds

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

I have lived my entire life in the mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, and home to the Oregon State Fairgrounds. I have gone to the Oregon State Fair, and events at the fairgrounds, as far back as I can remember. My community college graduation was held there, specifically at the Pavilion. The Oregon State Fairgrounds property is a hub for Oregon’s agriculture industry, which is one of the largest in the country.

Knowing all of that, it was with tremendous surprise and joy that I learned that an event is coming to the Oregon State Fairgrounds, and to the Pavilion no less! And it’s not just any cannabis event. It’s the Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair, which is going to feature actual live plant displays. As I said, Oregon is a national leader in agriculture, and cannabis is on its way to taking its rightful place at the top of Oregon’s leading agriculture products. After all, cannabis cultivation is at its core agriculture, and so it’s fitting that this event is coming to the Oregon State Fairgrounds.

I tip my hat to the organizers of this event because of where it will take place. The Oregon State Fairgrounds Pavilion is a government property, and getting the State of Oregon to agree to allow live plant exhibits was something that I’m sure wasn’t an easy task. The fact that this event is occurring where it’s occurring is huge. So huge that it can’t be understated how historic this event really is, and is really a sign of the times.

One thing that I love about the event is that it’s going to be on the weekend. So many events take place during the week when people like me who have a day job can’t attend. The Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair will be taking place on August 13-14. I’ll be there, and hope to see you there too. Below is more information about the event. You can purchase tickets at this link here, which start at just $20. You can also check out the event on Facebook:

Will Michigan Voters Get to Decide on Legal Marijuana in November?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

Michigan voters may have the rare opportunity in the upcoming November election to decide whether the state should legalize marijuana for recreational purposes. That is as long as MILegalize, the group fighting to get an initiative in front of the people, has successfully managed to secure the signatures needed to qualify for the next phase of its campaign, and if it can avoid being sabotaged by the actions of the state legislature.

On Wednesday, organizers with the MILegalize crusade reportedly submitted more than 350,000 petitions to the Michigan Secretary of State’s office in hopes of qualifying the necessary 252,523 signatures it’s going to take to earn a spot on the November ballot. However, there is a distinct possibility that the majority of the signatures the group has collected in 2016 could be disqualified due to a piece of legislation currently lingering on the desk of Governor Rick Snyder asking for clarification to the 180-day limit the law is supposed to allow for signature collecting campaigns.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Group Accused of Striking Deal With State Legislature

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, June, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Despite rumors suggesting that the Ohio legislature pressured marijuana advocates to back down from their efforts to put a medical marijuana initiative on the November ballot, organizers with Ohioans for Medical Marijuana say the decision to abandon the campaign was not the result of any strong-arm tactics or political promises—the group simply could not compete with the cutthroat tenacity of state lawmakers. 

On Saturday, cannabis advocates across the United States were shocked to learn that the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), the national advocacy group backing the Ohio ballot measure, had pulled the plug on its fight to bring a comprehensive medical marijuana program to the Buckeye State. The news of the suspended campaign came just days after the state legislature managed to push through a medical marijuana measure (House Bill 523) of its own—making good on its promise to get the proposal to the desk of Governor John Kasich before the end of the month.

rhode island medical marijuana dispensaryI received the following alert out of Rhode Island. If you live there, I urge you to get active:

Leaders of the General Assembly have said they expect the legislative session to end soon, but they have not said they will allow a vote on legislation to legalize and regulate marijuana for adult use before the clock runs out.

TomorrowThursday, June 2 at 1:00 p.m., Regulate Rhode Island and our coalition partners will gather in front of the State House (82 Smith Street in Providence) to deliver hundreds of petition signatures from Rhode Islanders who think it is time for the General Assembly to vote on regulating marijuana. We hope you will stand with us to help show how much support there is for sensible marijuana policy reform!

If you haven’t yet, please sign and share our petition to Senate President Paiva-Weed and Speaker Mattiello asking them to allow a vote on the legislation to legalize and regulate marijuana for adult use.
