New York Next For Legalization?

The state of New York has been under the watchful eye of the stoner community for a while, since the battle for legal cannabis has been going back and forth here for a while now. The governor is currently drawing up plans for a legalization bill that would make NY the third (or fourth depending on how you take Portland, ME) place in the US to legalize the plant.
 
Andrew Cuomo, the current Democratic governor in NY is working on allowing the plant to be used for medical purposes, in hospitals all over the state. Although the plant will be allowed for medical purposes, it's not expected that NY follow Colorado in the recreational aspect, keeping the plant only for medical benefits. Of course, we all know that that's how the process begins. Decriminalization, medical legalization, recreational legalization. Plus, the patients that really need the plant will have access to a natural, less dangerous kind of medicine.
 
If passed, cannabis would be used in twenty hospitals statewide to treat serious illnesses such as cancer and glaucoma. Even the proposition of this measure is shocking, considering that New York has one of the highest possession charge rates, charging 450,000 people between the years of 2002 and 2012. That's a lot of people in trouble just for possessing marijuana.
 
The most worried about aspect of the cannabis legalization is driving while under the influence, as there's a great deal of controversy on this subject. Of course, it seems that no one wants to spotlight the studies that are being released. Specifically one titled "Medical Marijuana Laws, Traffic Fatalities, and Alcohol Consumption", done by two gentlemen in November of 2011, shows that a higher marijuana consumption rate among adults led to a decrease in alcohol related traffic incidents in states that have allowed medical marijuana. This study alone should be enough to convince people that there is a definitely higher level of safety when it comes to driving while under the influence of marijuana. However, there have been others done to prove that driving while stoned is as dangerous as driving while taking allergy medicines.
 
It is looking like New York will be the next state to permit medical marijuana. As said above, this is definitely a step in the right direction and can only bring a positive change in this state. Patients will now get the medicine that they need in order to feel/get better and we will be one step closer to marijuana legalization in every state in the country.

NFL Commissioner Open To Players Using Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, January, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
nfl-open-to-mj-useRoger Goodell, Commissioner of the National Football League (NFL), has made his first ever public comments surrounding medical cannabis consumption among players, saying that he’s open to a change in the league’s rules which would allow its use in states where its legal.
 
“I don’t know what’s going to develop as far as the next  for medicine to evolve and to help either deal with pain or help deal with injuries, but we will continue to support the evolution of medicine”, said Goodell in an interview with ESPN, when asked about the league’s policy which results in a suspension if a player is caught using cannabis for any purpose, even if they’re a qualified medical cannabis patient in a state where it’s legal.
 
The comment from Goodell is the first the NFL has made about cannabis since November 2012 when Colorado and Washington voted to legalize recreational cannabis; NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today that the new laws wouldn’t change anything.
 
Although Goodell’s response is far from an indicator that a change in policy is in the immediate future, it’s still a good sign to see the league at least open to discussing the issue.

The Price Is HIGH

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, January, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
the-price-of-weed-is-too-highIf you think that you're high, just wait until you hear about the prices that are coming with the legal weed in Colorado. Smoking without worrying about cops busting down your door is dope, don't get me wrong. But how keen are you on paying $100 for an eighth of weed that used to cost you $50 from your friend across town. Are the prices high enough to turn some stoners away from legal bud and back to street dealers? It's possible with a slight sacrifice.
 
People showed up to wait for legal bud on the 1st of this month got a real shock when they reached the registers to pay for their pack of legal pot. The 25% tax is a lot more intimidating when you're looking at your tab on the computer display. And what if you're that asshole that didn't happen to bring enough money? Now you're just holding up the line and everyone behind is you is cranky and sober. Rachel Gillette, the executive director at NORML, witnessed top shelf cannabis being sold to recreational users at a whopping $400 an ounce, a price tag you rarely see with the exception of the far north states, where growing marijuana is difficult indoors and the outdoor conditions are too unpredictable. Forget about the fact that this $400 price didn't include the 25% marijuana tax or the state issued tax that is also applied. Talk about breaking the bank. Medical prices will remain at their normal price, which is around $20 an ounce plus tax, a staggering drop from the recreational price. Medical cannabis users will also avoid the 25% tax, which will only apply to recreational users in the state and tourists.
 
The prices are all over the place, with some dispensaries selling an eighth at $25 one day and $70 the next. Hopefully, these amounts will stabilize quickly, giving recreational users a better idea at what they'll be paying if they want to smoke. It may take a bit but even the tax may decrease, once state lawmakers figure out that legalizing cannabis can only be a good thing for their local economies.
 
Last year, Colorado State released a report saying that the estimated level price of an ounce at retail will end up being somewhere around $185 an ounce before taxes. That seems like an alright price, definitely as compared to the insane $400 an ounce price that currently seems to be the norm. If the prices don't fall, then it's estimated that a lot of stoners will fall back to the black market and street dealers, in order to keep some of their hard earned money in their pockets.
