MILegalize And The Hollow Place

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana legalization milegalizeThis isn’t a typical facts-on-figures article about the MILegalize campaign to legalize the adult use of marijuana in Michigan. In fact, there won’t be any facts in this article. Only feelings.

Except, I don’t really know what I am feeling right now.

Part of me wants to say, FUCK YEAH! Less than 48 hours ago, our campaign turned in more than 350,000 signatures on 55,000 petition sheets contained within 61 boxes, collected over 11 months of campaigning. We raised just shy of $1.1 million and have a statewide volunteer base of more than a thousand registered participants.

Okay, so there were a few facts tossed in. Here’s another fact: I am on the Board of MILegalize, along with more than a dozen others, attorneys and significant activists from around the state. We did what people said we could not; we finished what people said was a dead campaign; we broke rules, made new rules and forced the Michigan Legislature and Board of State Canvassers to alter policy and draft new law to prevent others from doing what we have done.

All praiseworthy and remarkable accomplishments. So why do I feel hollow?

A Growing Trend: Cultivating Marijuana For Personal Fulfillment

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, June, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana garden federal Edward SchmiedingGrowing marijuana is a very popular thing, and something that seems to get more popular every day. Whenever people express an interest in the marijuana industry, it seems like 9/10 they want to be a grower. I grew marijuana for a handful of years, and plan on getting back to it after this summer heat is over. I know first hand how rewarding and fun cultivating marijuana can be.

Most people want to grow marijuana for profit. More often then not the desire to grow includes visions of grandeur, with people planning on harvesting monster crops and striking it rich even before their plants flip over from veg stage to flower stage. The fact of the matter is, growing marijuana for profit is not nearly as easy as people think, and that’s not just because of the green thumb requirements.

In addition to being able to grow quality marijuana, growers also have to consider getting rid of the crop, which is becoming increasingly difficult for a lot of people because the market is either too crowded in some states, or the grower operates in a state where demand isn’t that high for one reason or another. Add to that testing requirements, overhead, the potential for bugs, heat, mildew, and 280e tax provisions, and growing marijuana for profit is not always the experience that people expect it to be.

California: SB 987 Would Impose A 15% Medical Marijuana Tax

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

cannabis marijuana tax taxpayer cost prohibitionA funny thing occurs in the world of politics when it comes to marijuana taxes. The word ‘tax’ is a trigger word in politics, and is not a popular thing, which is why politicians try to avoid using the word. In California, new taxes come with some serious hurdles to jump, which is why some politicians are trying to get crafty when it comes to creating a new medical marijuana tax for patients purchasing medicine. See the legislative alert that I received below out of California:

Desperate members of the California Senate are now trying to side-step constitutional protections in an effort to stick medical marijuana patients with a tax. The state constitution requires tax bills to pass with a two-thirds vote, but lawmakers are making a shameful attempt to get around that requirement to raise revenue off the backs of the sick by simply replacing the word “tax” with “user fee.”

Click here right now to tell your senator you won’t stand for it.

SB 987 would impose a 15% tax for the sale of medical marijuana to patients. Ever since the bill was introduced back in February, the purpose of the bill was clear — it meant to tax sick people who rely on medical marijuana. Measures like this are particularly harmful for patients who often have limited incomes and who face serious illnesses. And no insurance company currently covers the cost of medical marijuana.
