A Prosecutor Is Pushing To Legalize Marijuana In New Jersey

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

Welcome to New JerseyJon-Henry “J.H.” Barr, Esq. is a prosecutor in New Jersey, and has been since 2001. He has personally seen how the justice system treats marijuana users. I think that there are many prosecutors out there that support marijuana reform privately, but never express it publicly. Prosecutors serve a vital governmental function by helping put away bad guys, but that should in no way include marijuana users. However, sadly, it happens in America (including New Jersey) all the time.

Mr. Barr is refusing to sit on the sidelines and see the government ruin good people’s lives while at the same time wasting limited government resources. That’s why he is fighting to legalize marijuana in New Jersey. Per NJ Spotlight:

Barr has recently been quoted in news releases and advocacy materials related to theNew Jersey United for Marijuana Reform campaign, where he serves as a steering committee member. (He serves as an individual, not as a representative of the prosecutors association, although the association endorsed a resolution in 2014 calling for marijuana legalization, subject to “reasonable regulations.”)

Led by the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, the diverse group joined forces last year to advocate for a system in which pot is legally available for adults to purchase, and regulated and taxed by the state — similar to alcohol sales. NJUMR claims current law “wastes more than $127 million each year on a failed policy” that unfairly punishes poor communities of color without improving public safety. The campaign’s membership makes it unique; the partnership includes physicians and law enforcement officials, in addition to civil rights and community advocates.

Colorado Marijuana Sales Approach 900 Million Dollars Through November

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

colorado hempAt the beginning of 2015 it was predicted that Colorado’s marijuana industry would top the one billion dollar mark. New numbers were released which included January 2015 through November 2015, and it appears that the one billion dollar estimate will be close. Through November, 2015 Colorado marijuana sales (recreational and medical combined) approached 900 million dollars. PerThe Cannabist:

After taking a sharp dive in October, Colorado marijuana sales and taxes held steady in November 2015, according to new data from the state’s Department of Revenue.

While the state’s December data and year-end totals won’t be available until mid-February, Colorado’s cannabis shops are already approaching the $900 million sales mark with this week’s new November numbers.

From October to November, recreational marijuana sales increased by 4 percent to $51 million as medical cannabis sales dipped more than 5 percent to $29.6 million, according to Cannabist calculations based on the state’s tax data.

December would have to have a significant uptick in sales in order to cross the one billion dollar mark, but even if that doesn’t happen, Colorado’s marijuana industry had a stellar year. Can you name one state in the country that couldn’t use a billion dollar industry that largely came out of nowhere? I certainly can’t think of one. It will be interesting to see how Colorado’s industry numbers are once Oregon’s recreational marijuana industry is fully up and running, which is expected to be by the end of 2016. October sales in Colorado took a dip, which is also when limited recreational sales started in Oregon. There are a lot of factors involved, but I have to assume more than one person decided to vacation in the Pacific Northwest rather than Colorado for a marijuana vacation.
