Taco Bell, Del Taco Unahppy About Names Being Used in Marijuana Expo Ad
Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
Despite the fact that potheads love Taco Bell, Taco Bell is not cool with being associated with weed in advertisements. Neither a Taco Bell nor a Del Taco in Orange County, Calif. want their names associated with a marijuana expo set for next week in Anaheim. The Kush Expo will blow through the Anaheim Convention Center on Jul. 6 and Jul. 7, and both taco chains are mentioned in promos. They aren't having it.
Del Taco spokeswoman Barbara Caruso said "It's unacceptable for companies to use our logo without permission and they didn't have permission." Rob Poetsch, spokesman for Taco Bell, voiced similar frustrations. "We have a longstanding policy that prohibits other businesses from using our trademarks, and we did not give them permission to do this."
Poetsch added that Taco Bell was "in the process of contacting them to take down our trademarks from their website, but it appears that they have already taken them down." The Kush Expo is advertised as "the world's biggest medical marijuana mega show," with prizes, giveaways and even a "Hot Kush Girl" contest. That sounds like a stoner's paradise, but Taco Bell and Del Taco will have no official affiliation.

L.A. releases list of 134 medical marijuana clinics allowed in the city
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sat, June, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
The Los Angeles City Attorney's office on Friday released a list of 134 medical marijuana dispensaries that will be qualified to operate under Proposition D, the May 21 measure approved by city voters.
The dispensaries on the list are those that registered with the city prior to City Hall imposing a moratorium on new facilities in 2007.
Opponents of the measure, who are seeking to allow more clinics to open in the city, have said they are reviewing possible legal challenges to the city's law.

Marijuana's march toward mainstream confounds feds

WASHINGTON—It took 50 years for American attitudes about marijuana to zigzag from the paranoia of "Reefer Madness" to the excesses of Woodstock back to the hard line of "Just Say No."
The next 25 years took the nation from Bill Clinton, who famously "didn't inhale," to Barack Obama, who most emphatically did.
Now, in just a few short years, public opinion has moved so dramatically toward general acceptance that even those who champion legalization are surprised at how quickly attitudes are changing and states are moving to approve the drug—for medical use and just for fun.
It is a moment in America that is rife with contradictions:
—People are looking more kindly on marijuana even as science reveals more about the drug's potential dangers, particularly for young people.
—States are giving the green light to the drug in direct defiance of a federal prohibition on its use.
—Exploration of the potential medical benefit is limited by high federal hurdles to research.
Washington policymakers seem reluctant to deal with any of it.
Richard Bonnie, a University of Virginia law professor who worked for a national commission that recommended decriminalizing marijuana in 1972, sees the public taking a big leap from prohibition to a more laissez-faire approach without full deliberation.
"It's a remarkable story historically," he says. "But as a matter of public policy, it's a little worrisome."
