Medical marijuana dispensaries might offer Nevada job opportunities

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
neveda-jobsMedical marijuana dispensaries could provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs as well as patients in Nevada, according to the CEO of a business training center who recently held a seminar in Reno.
 
“Who would have thought you could have a retirement plan or future or pay for your kids’ college with marijuana?” asked Robert Calkin, president and CEO of Cannajobs and a professor at Oaksterdam University in Oakland. “Now, you can.”
 
Calkin began the Cannabis Career Institute when he learned that many of his students at Oaksterdam weren’t going to class to become activists or learn more about marijuana — but rather to get into the business of the drug.
 
According to Calkin, people were leaving classes still disappointed because, while they were learning how to grow and work with plants, they weren’t learning the business aspect.
 
The Cannabis Career Institute has given Calkin the opportunity to create a support group and give detailed instructions on how to operate in the business — legally.
 
“I’ve been used to doing this illegally all my life, and I’m happy to be able to do it legally now,” Calkin said.
 
About 20 people attended an institute seminar at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Reno on Saturday. The event came a little more than a month after Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed Senate Bill 374 to legalize medical marijuana dispensaries in Nevada.
 
“When you leave here today, no one is going to be able to tell you you’re running a criminal operation,” Calkin said.

Suspensions and bans for athletes using pot should change, activist says

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-policy-and-athletesBroncos all-pro Von Miller is appealing a four-game suspension, reportedly after testing positive for marijuana (and possibly Molly).
When it comes to pot use, however, a number of major sports organizations are amending their policies related to positive tests -- and Marijuana Policy Project spokesman and Amendment 64 proponent Mason Tvert believes the NFL and other leagues would be well-advised to do the same.
 
"As more and more agencies and officials begin to recognize that marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol, they are reconsidering how they treat athletes who use marijuana off the field," Tvert says.
"Obviously, we don't see professional athletes being punished simply for having a beer or a glass of wine on a weekend during the off-season," he continues. "So there's absolutely no reason they should be punished for using a less harmful substance."
 
This isn't a new issue for Tvert. In 2007, when the Miami Dolphins' Ricky Williams applied for reinstatement to the NFL after a marijuana-related suspension, the activist and founder of SAFER (Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation) helped coordinate the placement of a billboard near Mile High Stadium encouraging the running back to sign with Denver.

New Hampshire Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
nh-legalizes-mjNew Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a bill Tuesday legalizing marijuana for approved medical use. New Hampshire became the 19th state to legalize medical marijuana, and the final New England state to do so.
 
The new law, HB 573, provides for as many as four nonprofit dispensaries and allows qualified patients to possess up to two ounces of marijuana. To qualify, patients must have at least one of a limited range of conditions like cancer, Crohn’s disease or multiple sclerosis. Doctors must treat patients for at least 90 days and try other remedies before making medical marijuana recommendations.
 
Unlike in several other states, New Hampshire patients must purchase their medical marijuana from state-sanctioned dispensaries. They’re forbidden from growing their own or buying from other sources, leaving currently sick patients to wait as long as two years for the first dispensary to open.
 
New Hampshire’s House of Representatives passed a bill that would allow home cultivation of marijuana for approved patients, but that provision was stripped from the legislation by the state Senate at Hassan’s request. The Senate also struck post-traumatic stress disorder from the list of approved medical conditions and included a provision requiring patients to obtain written permission before using medical marijuana on anyone else’s private property.
 
“Allowing doctors to provide relief to patients through the use of appropriately regulated and dispensed medical marijuana is the compassionate and right policy for the State of New Hampshire, and this legislation ensures that we approach this policy in the right way with measures to prevent abuse,” said Gov. Hassan in a statement.
