The Clock Is Ticking: Register to Attend NORML’s 2016 Conference and Congressional Lobby Day

Category: Events | Posted on Sat, May, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

congress medical marijuanaBy Danielle Keane, NORML Political Director

We are ten days out from NORML’s 2016 Conference and Congressional Lobby Day and we are excited to share with you the full itinerary! Have you registered to attend? We have some fun events planned and it would be a shame for you to miss out!

Our ‘pre-registration’ social will be held at Eden Lounge the night of Sunday, May 22nd where we will have the place to ourselves for private mingling and relaxing. We’ll be welcoming those of you who are travelling from out of town and getting you checked into the event so you won’t have to worry about a thing on Monday morning. This party is free for those who pre-register for our Conference and Lobby Day but for those who wait till the last minute, you will have to pay a cover charge.

On Tuesday, May 24, during our morning reception on the Hill we have confirmed the participation of three prominent members of Congress: Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) and Congresswoman Suzan Delbene (D-WA). Each of them will take time to address NORML’s attendees. This is a unique chance to meet with and hear directly from some of our nation’s most important marijuana law reformers in an intimate setting. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into the progress we are making at the federal level. Have you ever had the opportunity to speak directly with a member of Congress? Now is your chance!

New law could put some medical marijuana dispensaries out of business

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

In 2001, Steve DeAngelo agreed to help a friend by attending the delivery of nearly 200 pounds of marijuana in a Maryland trailer park and verifying the quality of the product. In exchange, DeAngelo said he would get 10 pounds of the cannabis that he planned to distribute to medical marijuana patients in that state, where he lived at the time.

Instead, the police swooped in, and DeAngelo ended up convicted of felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell. 

Fifteen years later, DeAngelo runs what may be the largest medical marijuana dispensary in the U.S., but a new law says he will have to get a state license by 2018 — and the state can reject applications from those with drug felonies on their records.

Congresswoman Lee Joins National Cannabis Industry Association’s Press Conference

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, May, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

barbara lee california marijuanaToday, Congresswoman Barbara Lee joined several of her colleagues and members of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) for a press conference on Capitol Hill demanding respect for state laws and fairness for the industry. She prepared this statement:

“Today, I’m pleased to join my colleagues and the National Cannabis Industry Association in making one simple request to Congress: “treat the industry just like any other business.”

It’s past time for the federal government to end its counterproductive overreach into state-legal cannabis markets.

Last week, I was proud to join Harborside Health Center in celebrating the U.S. Attorney’s decision to end its unnecessary case against this health center. While it was victory for Harborside, there are still centers in my district and around the country that continue to face harassment.

Additionally, outdated laws continue to prevent many state-legal businesses from thriving, including our arcane banking laws. These laws serve only to trap these businesses in the cash-only market, restrict their access to capital and prevent them from engaging in simple business-to-business transactions.
