Three Medical Marijuana Measures on Todays Ballot (Vote YES on F)

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
LA has tried for more than five years to balance medical needs with neighborhood concerns about medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the city. Three measures on Tuesday's ballot seek to either curb the number of dispensaries or allow new ones to open.
 
Measure D would restrict the number of medical marijuana dispensaries to the original 135 approved before a 2007 requirement that dispensaries register with the city. The measure would apply a tax of $60 for every $1,000 in sales.
 
"Why don't we start with a conservative strategy?" said Los Angeles Councilmember Bill Rosendahl, who credited medical marijuana with helping his fight against cancer. "We take a deep breath, see how it goes, and then we can go from there."
 
A rival proposal was placed on the ballot after a signature drive. Measure F would allow for unlimited dispensaries and call for a 20-percent sales tax.
 
The measure would require worker background checks and several stringent requirements, according to supporters. Proponents also claim zoning language, which outlines where dispensaries could operate, in the measure ensures the number would be limited to about 400.
 
"Proposition F provides a sufficient number of dispensaries that allows patients to have the access they need to medical marijuana," said Michael Bustamante, of the "Yes on F, No on D" campaign.

Legislation Announced To Legalize Marijuana In New York

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, May, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
Senator Liz Krueger has announced that she intends to file legislation in New York aimed at legalizing the recreational use, possession, private cultivation and state-licensed sales of marijuana for adults. The measure comes as New York’s Legislature continues to push forward a measure to legalize medical marijuana – a proposal that’s already been approved by the state’s House, and is expected to pass the Senate.
 
“It is my intention as a New York State senator to soon introduce a law that would actually decriminalize, regulate and tax marijuana in New York,” stated Krueger last week.
 
The measure, which will be titled theMarijuana, Regulation, and Taxation Act, would authorize adults to legally cultivate up to 6 plants and possess up to 2 ounces. The proposal would establish state-licensed retail outlets, which would be regulated through the New York State Liquor Authority.

Voters Favor Strict Limits on Marijuana Dispensaries (Vote F)

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
Most of you want to limit the number of marijuana dispensaries in town to 135 or less. So says a USC Sol Price School of Public Policy/Los Angeles Times poll of 500 likely voters conducted last week and released over the weekend.
That means that you're probably favoring the City Hall-sponsored Measure D, which would do just that and shut down as many as 9 out of 10 pot shops in town. The poll, however, is flawed:
 
It asks which statement voters agree with, putting a "cap" on the number of dispensaries or "no limits" on pot shops.
 
That's not really how it's going to work on the ballot. Measure D would indeed impose a cap; it would also shut down most shops in town. Measure F, its main competition, does impose regulations, including an increase in city tax, background checks for operators, business hours and maintaining distances from schools.
 
As its backers would argue, that's not "no limits;" They also say shops would be shut down under the ordinance, just not as many as would under D.
