Colorado Schools to Track Marijuana Offenses by Students

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER (AP) -- Colorado schools will begin compiling data on students who get busted for using or distributing marijuana, an effort aimed at gauging the effects of the drug's legalization in the state.

The new requirement is an addition to a 2012 law directing law enforcement and district attorneys to collect information on how students are punished and whether they're being arrested or ticketed when they should be disciplined by educators for minor offenses.

Schools have been tracking all drug offenses involving students, but marijuana has not been separated on its own. Anecdotally, some schools say they've noticed an increase in marijuana use while others have not, according to Jane Urschel, deputy executive director of the Colorado Association of School Boards.

Lawmakers want definitive data now that recreational marijuana pot shops have been in business for almost 18 months.

"I think we need to get an accurate picture of what our trends are at our schools, what sort of impact legalization has had on our kids," said Republican Rep. Polly Lawrence, one of the lawmakers behind the bill to track marijuana use.

All forms of medical marijuana are legal, Canadian court rules

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana patients in Canada can legally use all forms of the drug, the Canadian Supreme Court has ruled.

Medical marijuana patients will now be able to consume marijuana, not only smoke it.

Cannabis oil is now permitted instead of only "dried" marijuana, meaning people can bake it into food products.

The case began in 2009 when a baker from the Cannabis Buyers Club of Canada was charged with trafficking and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Former head baker of the club Owen Smith was caught baking 200 pot cookies, CBC reports.

A British Columbia judge acquitted Mr Smith and gave Canada's government a year to change laws around extracting marijuana. The case then wound up in the Supreme Court.

Restricting people to dried marijuana for medical purposes has been declared "null and void" by the court.

New York Medical Marijuana Program Brings In $3 Million From Application Process

Today state officials in New York will close the application process to open a dispensary.

According to numbers from the New York Post, the state has already brought in $3 million from the selection process by charging 300 perspective dispensary owners $10,000 a pop to file their bid to attain one of the five permits being distributed in the state.

These permits would allow their holder to open four dispensaries, and 20 dispensaries in total would be allowed to open in a state with a population of 19.75 million. The idea of one dispensary per 1 million residents does not really float with any goals for there to be ease of access, but with how limited the conditions list is, it shouldn’t be much of an issue as dispensing kicks off in 2016. However, patients upstate are worried about the travel times that would be required to access their medicine.

Lightly processed flowers, as in trimmed, dried, and cured, will not be available to New York patients. This is due to the ban on smoking medical cannabis — only oils, edibles, and vapable products will be for sale.

Not everyone in New York is happy with how the state’s regulations turned out. State Assembly Leader Richard Gottfried told a Drug Policy Alliance event, “Last June, we were about to pass in both houses and the Governor calls me and Diane Savino down to his office and says ‘This is how we’ve got to change it.’ Maybe we should have told him to stuff it and passed it how it was and had him veto it, but we decided to bargain with him. We got a lot of really bad changes into the legislation and when they came out with the regulations they were even worse.”

Hopefully after the kinks are worked out in the distribution process, New York’s medical cannabis program will redevelop into something a bit more inclusive. Right now, lots of folks will be left out of the loop when it comes to using cannabis as effective medicine.
