Message Of Marijuana Reform Receives Warm Reception In Missouri

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-warm-receptionWe held town hall meetings in Jefferson City and Columbia this week, and both drew supportive crowds eager to know how they can advance the cause. On Monday, our meeting in Jefferson City attracted more than 25 marijuana law reform advocates. Many of them expressed an interest in lobbying our elected officials at the state capitol once the legislature starts its new session in January.
 
The Columbia town hall was an even greater success, thanks largely to the efforts of SMCR board chair, criminal defense attorney, and longtime Columbia resident Dan Viets. I wasn’t able to make it to the event, but Dan sent along this write-up:
 
A standing-room only crowd of more than 100 assembled at the Daniel Boone Public Library in Columbia Thursday night for a Marijuana Town Hall Meeting. They heard statements from Missouri Representatives Chris Kelly and Rory Ellinger that they are seriously considering filing bills to tax and regulate cannabis like alcohol, allow access to medical marijuana and/or decriminalize non-medical possession.
 
Kelly said he needs to be persuaded that the movement for legalization in Missouri is capable of putting together a winning campaign. He acknowledged that money is an important and necessary element of such a campaign, but said he also wants to see a winning campaign strategy.
 
His bill may ask the legislature to place the issue on the ballot and leave the final decision up to the voters. This would save the movement the need to spend great amounts of money just to get the issue on the ballot, and then have to raise more money for the campaign to pass the proposal.
 
Columbia Daily Tribune Publisher and Editor Hank Waters joined in, calling for full legalization, and conservative Tribune columnist and radio personality Bob Roper agreed. I offered opening comments and moderated the discussion.
 
Several audience members extolled the virtues of hemp as an agricultural commodity and a new revenue source for Missouri farmers. It was noted that Missouri was, and could again be, one of the major hemp producing states.
 
Several patients talked about their need for access to marijuana for medical reasons. Rep Ellinger has been the leading proponent of expanded expungement laws in Missouri, including allowing for expungement of cannabis offenses.
 
SMCR is drafting a proposal to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol which could be the basis for an initiative effort. SMCR may also ask Reps. Kelly and Ellinger to introduce the draft as a bill in the Missouri General Assembly, which could be in addition to an initiative effort or an alternative to one.

South Jersey medical marijuana site prepares for opening

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sun, September, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
jersey-mmj-shop-openThere are no signs out front, but people still show up at a drab beige warehouse outside Atlantic City to ask whether medical marijuana is available. Inside the cavernous building, 1,500 plants are growing beneath glowing fuchsia, yellow, and white LED lights inside a makeshift room.
 
Soon, the sweet-smelling, leafy plants will be harvested. They now stand 18 inches tall, each in a three-gallon pot, after three months of nurturing. Growers in white lab coats fussed over them last week, culling out unwanted half-male half-female specimens while three New Jersey health inspectors watched. In about two weeks, the cannabis will be gathered, dried and packaged, said William Thomas, Compassionate Care Foundation's hands-on CEO.
 
The bar-code number on each seed will be checked again when the final product is placed in a vial. Then, on Oct. 15, CCF hopes to open, becoming South Jersey's first dispensary. But don't envision patients lining up at the clinic's entrance at the front of the warehouse, in an industrial park in this suburban community, nine miles from the ocean.
 
No walk-ins are allowed. Since medical marijuana was legalized in New Jersey nearly four years ago, a dizzying array of regulations have been drafted by the state health department to restrict access to registered patients who have one of a dozen debilitating conditions. A licensed physician must grant approval, and patients may buy only two ounces per month.

Medical marijuana faces uphill climb to be legalized in N.C.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
medical-marijuana-legalization-ncIt didn’t get a lot of attention, ended abruptly and took a back seat to the likes of tax reform and the budget, but the issue of medical marijuana legalization in North Carolina did get a hearing this year in the Republican-controlled legislature.
 
Rep. Kelly Alexander Jr., D-Mecklenburg, sponsored a bill he said would have “permitted dispensaries to be created in North Carolina, and would have permitted it (medical marijuana) to be taxed and appropriately regulated.”
 
His efforts were quickly shut down – but not before a brief hearing.
 
“It got one of the fastest hearings in the Rules Committee of the long session, and it was reported out unfavorably from Rules after about 15 to 20 minutes of discussion,” Alexander said. “By putting it on the ‘unfavorable calendar,’ that pretty much meant you’d have to get a two-thirds vote to pull it off the calendar and get it considered on the floor, which of course didn’t happen because the majority leadership wasn’t in favor of that.”
 
Parking the bill on the unfavorable calendar also means it cannot be considered again during the two-year session, though a restructured measure could get a hearing if there is political will.
