Rauner uses veto to call for changes to marijuana decriminalization bill

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner on Friday used his veto powers to rewrite a bill aimed at decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, saying the measure that lawmakers sent him would let people carry too much pot and sets fines too low.
Rauner said while he supports the "fundamental purposes" of keeping people out of jail and cutting court costs, such a significant change in drug laws "must be made carefully and incrementally." Sponsors of the bill pushed back, saying the changes are "low-hanging fruit" when it comes to reforming the criminal justice system and contending the governor is working against his own goal of reducing the number of prison inmates.
Under the proposal, people caught with up to 15 grams of marijuana — about the equivalent of 25 cigarette-sized joints — would not go to court but instead receive fines ranging from $55 to $125. Rauner said those standards were too lax and the threshold should be lowered to 10 grams and fines should range from $100 to $200.


Oregon’s Largest Media Company Is Hiring A Freelance Marijuana Reviewer

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

now hiring marijuana job jobsIf you live in Oregon, then you should be familiar with The Oregonian and OregonLive.Com. They combine to be the largest media outlet in the entire state of Oregon. For a long time activists considered the media company to be unfavorable to all things marijuana, but that has changed a lot recently. As proof, consider the fact that the media company is now hiring a freelance marijuana reviewer who will be paid to consume marijuana and write reviews about what they consumed. The media company recognizes that readers are eager for that information, and they want a writer that can help educate their readers on the products that are out there.

I would imagine there are a ton of people out there that are going to apply for this. I certainly know that I’m contemplating applying for it! It’s tough to say what they are looking for in a writer exactly, but below is a description, via an article by the amazing Noelle Crombie:

The candidate should be an experienced cannabis consumer with deep knowledge about the variety of strains and products available on the Oregon market. The items would appear 2-4 times a month on OregonLive and/or The Oregonian. 

If that sounds like you, you can apply by contacting editor Bruce Hammond, to learn more. If I do apply, and they don’t pick me (which is probably likely!), I hope that they pick someone that is reputable, and represents the Oregon cannabis community well. There are a lot of people out there that can write, but there are not a lot of people out there that truly understand the intricacies of the cannabis plant. I’d hate to read the reviews and have them just be cookie cutter reviews one after another, and to be from someone that the Oregon cannabis community has never heard of. Oregon’s largest media outlet deserves to have an expert, and not a newbie that barely knows the difference between a quality strain and a poor one!

As it grows, marijuana business becomes more tech savvy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

When he first began buying medical marijuana to treat his multiple sclerosis, Mark Manasse was forced to visit a dispensary every time he needed to get fresh buds.

But thanks to a host of new apps like Quil, he can order the marijuana from his home in California and wait for the delivery to arrive in less than an hour - much like you would a pizza.

"I like that they show me the expected delivery time so I can figure out, OK, I had better finish cooking dinner then, so I can be ready for when the delivery arrives," Manasse told's Lexy Savvides.

The delivery apps are part of a growing push by the cannabis industry to bring technology to bear on everything from growing and testing to selling and delivering their product. And with the medical marijuana sector legal in 23 states and Washington, D.C. and becoming big business in places like California, where sales reached $1.1 billion last year, there is no shortage of entrepreneurs and investors interested in getting in on the action.
