Ganjapreneur Interviews Founder Of International Cannabis Association

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

international cannabis associationAs the cannabis legalization movement has gained momentum in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Alaska, and other states, the cannabis industry has increasingly been referred to as a potential opportunity for legitimate start-ups and businesses. Dan Humiston, founder of the International Cannabis Association, recently discussed how his organization helps aspiring cannabis entrepreneurs in an interview with Ganjapreneur.com, a cannabis industry and business news website.

In the interview, Humiston discusses how he first became involved in the cannabis industry, and why he decided to leave a successful career as a business owner to do so. He explains, “In 1985 I opened my first tanning salon and over the next 30 years I grew my chain Tanning Bed Inc. to the largest chain in New York and one of the largest chains in the country. In the mid 2000’s, tanning industry sales started to fall and by the end of the decade it was apparent that I needed to find ways to reduce or re-purpose the space of my stores which were over 4,000 square feet. In 2012 I saw a 60 minute report about the cannabis industry and started trying to figure out how divide my tanning salons into tanning salons and dispensaries.”

Humiston describes what it was like trying to enter into an industry full of people who were inherently suspicious of outsiders due to the longstanding status of cannabis as an illegal substance. “Oddly enough,” he says, “the industry association would not provide information to non-industry companies because they said they were an industry association formed by industry companies, so why would they willingly provide information for future competitors?”

Rather than being deterred, however, Humiston decided to create an association that would be inclusive to anyone who wanted to learn about the industry. “Realizing that there are many other aspiring marijuana entrepreneurs that are looking for help, I decided to fill the void.”

Hearing set on adding autism to medical marijuana list

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Lisa Smith says her son’s behavior was dangerous: hair pulling, kicks, punches, all related to a severe form of autism. But it began to change more than a year ago when he was given daily oral doses of oil extracted from marijuana.

“That’s all stopped. He’s more focused, he’s calmer,” Smith said of 6-year-old Noah. “He sleeps better through the night. He has a better appetite. You can tell he’s growing, gaining weight.”

Noah is registered to use marijuana to control epileptic seizures; the effect on his autism was an unexpected benefit. Based on that success, Smith is asking the state of Michigan to add autism to the list of conditions that qualify for medical marijuana.

A public hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Lansing. A committee mostly composed of health professionals will make a recommendation to the director of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

“I know parents who are desperate. They’re missing out on something that could enhance their child’s life,” Smith said. “A lot of children with autism don’t have another qualifying condition like Noah does with epilepsy.”
