The Future Of Marijuana Reform Depends On The Success Of The Marijuana Industry

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, November, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana cash industry bankingI fight for marijuana reform because it’s the right thing to do. I have several members of my family that have been arrested, locked up, and fined because of marijuana prohibition. I myself have been fined for marijuana possession before, but fortunately because I live in Oregon, it was just a fine and not an arrest. This was before Measure 91 took effect, back when marijuana was just decriminalized in Oregon. Had I been caught just one state over, in Idaho, I would have been punished much harsher.

I fight for marijuana reform because I believe that no one should be fined, or arrested, and certainly not jailed because they like to consume a plant that has been found to be 114 times safer than alcohol. I also fight against marijuana prohibition because it’s a racist public policy, proven by math alone. Marijuana prohibition is an enforcement tool that many members of law enforcement use to racially profile people, and that is extremely wrong.

There are many, many others out there that fight for marijuana reform for the same reasons. They do not do it because it’s profitable, and in fact, most of them have sacrificed a great deal of their hard earned dollars in the name of reform. Unfortunately, and I say this as one of those people, that is not enough to ensure that marijuana reform occurs across this country. I wish it was, but it’s not. We have been doing the ‘reform marijuana laws because it’s the right thing to do’ strategy for many decades with mixed results.

New Jersey School Becomes First in the Nation to Allow Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, November, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

On the heels of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s signing of a bill allowing smokeless medical marijuana to be administered in schools, a facility in the southern portion of the state has reportedly devised a policy on the matter that will make them the first school in the United States to allow cannabis medicine on school property.

Following a failed lawsuit in which the family of 16-year-old Genny Barbour fought the Maple Shade School District for their epileptic daughter’s right to consume cannabis oil during her lunch period, the Lark School Board, which previously insisted that any form of cannabis on school property would be a violation of the drug-free school zone laws, has announced a new policy that will allow Barbour and students with similar conditions to consume medical marijuana during school hours.

“I’m thrilled that we have been able to reach this point," Susan Weiner, executive director of Larc School, said in a statement. "We're about helping children. I know there are so many kids in this state and across the country who can benefit from this. We're grateful that our legislators recognized it's a sincere need that helps students, because we do see the difference."

Investigators followed up Wednesday on information about a large marijuana grow at a warehouse at 1320 Dupont Court in Manteca.

Inside the building, officers discovered a large marijuana growing operation that housed 584 mature plants estimated to be worth $8.4 million, police said.

 

Detectives believe the grow had been in operation since July and was going to be harvested next week, intended for a Bay Area marijuana store.
