Oregon: It’s Getting Much Harder For Marijuana Entertainment Events And Venues

One of my favorite niches or sectors of the marijuana industry in Oregon is the marijuana entertainment sector. The first one that I had ever heard of was the World Famous Cannabis Cafe (WFCC). It has since been shutdown due to new indoor air rules, but at one point in time it was the hotspot destination in Oregon. Other venues built on a similar model started popping up all over Oregon. Some are still operating, while others have been shutdown like the WFCC.

Another type of entertainment event started proliferating Oregon over the last couple of years. One-time events have become a mainstay of the Oregon marijuana industry. Sometimes they are comedy shows, sometimes they are painting events, and other times they are something different still. But the main principle of renting out a venue space, charging people an admission at the door, and having ‘cannabis catering’ as I call it is something that a lot of people are doing in Oregon right now.

I have attended a handful of events that fit that description, and they are always fun. The entertainment portion is what I mainly come for, but I’d be lying if I said the cannabis sampling wasn’t part of what convinced me to leave my house to come to the event. To me it seems obvious, and quite logical, that if I’m attending a cannabis themed event that I plan on consuming cannabis while I’m at said event. Unfortunately it sounds like the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) is going to be cracking down on events like the ones described, which combined with the new Oregon Clean Air Act, could result in a dramatic decrease in marijuana entertainment events and venues.

State House passes changes to medical marijuana pilot program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana advocates in Illinois won a big victory in the waning hours of the legislature's spring session.

The Illinois House passed a measure on Monday that would change the program's expiration date to 2020, expand the number of qualifying conditions and make it easier for patients to access medical marijuana.

In a rare display of bipartisanship, Republicans Gov. Bruce Rauner and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin reached an agreement with Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang to extend the medical marijuana pilot program.

Public Policy Institute Of California Finds 60% Support For Marijuana Legalization

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

california marijuanaThe campaign behind California’s ‘Adult Use of Marijuana Act’ has turned in more than 600,000 signatures to get the initiative on the ballot. 365,880 of those signatures need to be valid for that to happen. The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) recently released poll results which found very strong support for marijuana legalization in California. Per PPIC:

Marijuana legalization. A majority (60%) of likely voters say that, in general, marijuana use should be legal, and 37 percent say it should not be legal. It is estimated that the initiative to legalize marijuana—if passed—would generate about $1 billion in tax revenue annually, most of which would be directed toward substance abuse prevention and treatment. Among likely voters, 43 percent say that spending the revenue this way is very important.

“California seems poised to show its blue state credentials in the fall,” Baldassare said. “Voters today are signaling their early support for Democratic statewide candidates, tax initiatives, and marijuana legalization.”
