Travel Guru Rick Steves Has The Best Advice For Fighting ‘Big Marijuana’

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

grow your own weed‘Big Marijuana’ is like the boogeyman in the marijuana world right now. Marijuana opponents warn of the imminent demise of American society due to the threat of big marijuana. Those claims are nothing more than scare mongering. Many people in the marijuana movement and industry fear a corporate takeover of marijuana, and those fears are well founded in my opinion. Travel guru Rick Steves has some stellar advice to combat the corporate takeover of marijuana – grow your own.

Rick Steves offered up that advice in an interview he did with KUOW a few weeks back. The comments came as Rick Steves was discussing the need for Washington State to add a home cultivation provision to its marijuana legalization law. As it stands right now, Washington is the only state to legalize marijuana but yet not allow home cultivation. Per KUOW:

Rick Steves doesn’t think Big Marijuana should control your pot. That’s one reason people in Washington state should be able to grow their own weed, Steves told KUOW’s Jeannie Yandel.

“I don’t want marijuana to go the route of tobacco and have Joe Camel and Big Tobacco and Big Marijuana” dominate the industry, Steves said. “If there’s money to be made, it’s going to attract big corporate interests and they’re going to have the clout. I like the idea of having home grow because it gives people an option to having to buy something from a giant organization. They can just have a few plants on the window sill, and it’s not a big deal.”

Marijuana gap divides Colorado towns that sell pot, those that don't

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

LOG LANE VILLAGE — An interesting David-and-Goliath dynamic is taking shape across Colorado's burgeoning commercial cannabis sector, with tiny communities friendly to the sale of recreational marijuana living in the shadow of large — and totally pot-shop-free — neighbors.

Manitou Springs, just a few miles from Colorado Springs, is the only place within a reasonable distance of the state's second-largest citywhere you can buy recreational weed. On the Eastern Plains, Log Lane Village plays the same role vis-…-vis Fort Morgan, a city 10 times its size.

Garden City, which weighs in at less than 1 square mile, has four recreational pot businesses. On the other side of 25th Street lurks Greeley, with more than 96,000 residents. It has none.

Anti-Marijuana Politicians In Oregon Need To Remember The Story Of Dwight Holton

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, January, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

beat holtonI will never forget the 2012 Election. Before Colorado and Washington voted to legalize marijuana on Election Day 2012, there was a very significant victory in my home state, Oregon. The victory wasn’t a recreational marijuana legalization victory unfortunately, as that would wait until 2014. That’s not to say that there weren’t legalization efforts underway at that time in the Spring of 2012, as there were actually two in Oregon (one that would become Measure 80, and the other was called OMPI, which was derailed due to a hefty fine levied on the campaign by then Secretary of State, and now Governor, Kate Brown).

I was sitting in my house with Jay Smoker when I received an e-mail via an activist e-mail group I’m a part of in Oregon. The e-mail was from the late, great Jim Greig, one of the biggest freedom fighters I have ever known. Jim was asking the group if there was any interest in coordinating a citizen effort to oppose anti-medical marijuana candidate Dwight Holton who was running for Oregon Attorney General. The Attorney General race in Oregon often has an interesting twist in that there are often times only Democrats running for the seat, so the race is decided in the primary election in May, and not on the general election in November. 2012 was one of those types of elections.

It was approximately 59 days prior to the primary election day, and Dwight Holton had so much more money than his competitor Ellen Rosenblum it wasn’t even funny. Holton had hundreds of thousands of dollars more in his campaign war chest, which in a primary race in Oregon creates an enormous advantage. Dwight Holton was an establishment candidate, being the son of a former Governor of Virginia and brother to former DNC Chairman Tim Kaine. Dwight Holton was up in the polls by almost double digits, and seemed to be sailing towards an inevitable victory.
