Legal Medical Marijuana Is Finally Being Grown In Illinois

Illinois’ medical marijuana program has faced a lot of delays. Illinois’ medical marijuana program is also not that big. The last stat that I heard was that there are 2,800 or so medical marijuana patients in Illinois now. I think that number would have grown faster, but considering that there is literally no way to legally obtain medical marijuana right now in Illinois, I’d imagine a lot of people have just been waiting. Legal safe access is one step closer in Illinois, as it sounds like seven cultivators have been given the green light to start growing plants. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

Illinois has given final permission so far to seven medical cannabis cultivation centers to begin growing MMJ, bringing the industry a big step closer to the start of sales.

The seven sites that have received the green light so far are PharmaCann, GTI, Nature’s Grace and Wellness, In Grown Farms, Ataraxia, and two by Ace, according to the Associated Press. The centers are spread all over the state, with only one near metro Chicago. The other six are scattered across more rural parts of Illinois.

Eleven more cultivation centers have received initial approval but haven’t yet gotten clearance to begin growing, the AP reported.

Now it’s time to see how many medical marijuana patients there will really be in Illinois when the dust settles. Patients who apply now and jump through all of the hoops will be able to make purchases at about the same time these cultivators are harvesting. There have been a lot of concerns about the low patient counts in Illinois, and rightfully so. If people think that business opportunities are bad, image how crappy things are for patients, especially those that don’t qualify under current rules which are very strict. Illinois’ medical marijuana program needs a lot of work. Contact your legislators and make them aware of that fact.

The U.S. Government’s Department of Health Finally Admits That Marijuana Kills Cancer

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

Throughout history the main reasons human beings willfully kill other human beings are religion and greed. Although it is surprising that people steeped in a religion that worships a “loving god” revels in killing other humans, it is part of the “convert or kill” mindset that one the major Abrahamic religions, Christianity thrives and prospers on. It is not as surprising that human beings kill others out of greed, but for an industry that claims it exists to “save lives and heal infirmity,” it is astonishing that the pursuit of profit drives their pursuit of death and sickness. For the medical industrial complex, there is nothing as terrifying as a cure, or remedy, for a highly profitable and fatal disease like cancer.
 
It is little surprise that for a couple of decades at the direction of the multi-national pharmaceutical industry, and more recently the for-profit prison and law enforcement industry, the federal government and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have concealed a highly effective and completely natural remedy and relief for cancer. In just the past two weeks, the federal government and NIH have quietly confirmed that cannabis (marijuana) is very effective at killing cancer cells without harming healthy cells like radiation and chemotherapy. In fact, on the NIH website devoted to the hideous disease, Cancer.gov, they published the truth about marijuana and its effectiveness at combatting cancer in a stunning reversal of over four decades of deliberate fear-mongering and propaganda portraying the common weed as dangerous; all to satisfy the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, prison system, and law enforcement agencies at the local, state, and federal level.

Marijuana Taxes Swell, Not Up In Smoke After All

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Not long ago, Colorado had a disappointing first year of tax collections from marijuana. When one projects one figure, perhaps anything less is a letdown, and the first state to legalize recreational marijuana projected a bonanza. The more skimpy actual numbers lead some to sound the alarm that marijuana taxes were going up in smoke. But now, officials say the Colorado marijuana tax revenues are up nearly 100 percent

 

The report that the pioneer pot state reaped $44 million in only the first five months of 2015 is a big relief. The same period last year netted the state only $25 million. The healthy uptick in the numbers will mean copious revenues going into public schools, plus many other dollars added to Colorado’s general fund. It seems apparent that this comparative gravy train will fuel other states in assessing taxes on the burgeoning business the crop has become.

 

Colorado is one of four states that have legalized recreational marijuana despite the continuing federal classification of cannabis as a controlled substance. Many more states have legalized medical marijuana, and with a growing number of states looking to add recreational marijuana, there is no question that taxes play a large part. Colorado has its own tax oddities.
