Adrian Grenier On Obama's Marijuana Use

Adrian Grenier and Matthew Cooke, producer and director of "How to Make Money Selling Drugs," joined HuffPost Live's Mike Sacks to talk about their new documentary and the implications of this country's drug policies for American citizens, especially minorities.
 
"Let's just have a real conversation," Grenier said. "How many people do you know who tried drugs recreationally, a glass of wine? How many people do you know who smoke where it doesn't have a major effect on their lives? They don't become addicts."
 
The actor, who made his name as Entourage's pot-smoking movie star Vinny Chase, continued, "And were we to throw them in jail, it would devastate their lives, they wouldn't be able to get college loans."
 
To hammer their point home, the filmmakers brought President Obama into the picture. "Imagine if Barack Obama had been busted for inhaling," said Cooke. "In that single moment when the SWAT teams came in and raided him, he wouldn't have been able to become president of the United States, and not only that, he couldn't have had a good job at all."
 
"He would have, as a black man, been less likely to get a good income in any job," Cooke continued. "He would have likely been prosecuted more than any white dealer or user."
 
A recent analysis by Americans For Safe Access, a pro-medical marijuana group, just revealed that the Obama Administration has spent $289 million fighting its use in states that have legalized the substance.
 
Grenier rounded out the debate, proclaiming, "I think [Obama] owes it to himself and future Obamas to stop this madness."

2 medical marijuana dispensaries open in Vt.

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, June, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
vt-dispensaries-openBURLINGTON (AP) -- Two medical marijuana dispensaries have opened in Vermont after the Legislature passed a law allowing the drug to be dispensed to patients with chronic illness or intractable pain.
 
Champlain Valley Dispensary opened Monday in Burlington and the Vermont Patients Alliance opened a similar dispensary in Montpelier days before.
 
A third facility is planned in Brandon.
 
"This is a groundbreaking. It's important and exciting to be doing this in Burlington," said Shayne Lynn, proprietor of the Burlington dispensary.
 
Two years ago the Legislature passed a law permitting medical marijuana to be dispensed under strict rules.
 
They are required to grow their own marijuana in a secure environment. Customers must be qualified to buy the drug and show proof of that from the state. They then make an appointment to pick up the drug.
 
The dispensary also must consider what marijuana is selling for on the black market when it sets a price.
 
"We have to be concerned about the black market price. We can't undercut that price, because that might cause someone to resell it," he said.
 
The Burlington dispensary does offer a sliding scale to patients who can't pay the full price, he said.
 
The dispensary provides two strains of marijuana in three different potencies.
 
The drug goes for $225 to $450 an ounce, depending on its quality but most patients get smaller amounts. The dispensary serves 12-15 patients.
 
Lynn said he plans to pull back on his commercial photography business to dedicate himself to the dispensary.
 
"I totally believe in the plant and the science behind it. I had a very close friend who was a patient; I could see the relief he was getting from using cannabis. It was the one thing that got him through chemotherapy," he said.
