Colorado to offer one-day tax holiday on marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

Colorado will repeal sales taxes on marijuana Sept. 16, thanks to a quirk in its constitution.

The one-time-only holiday from the 10 percent state sales tax on recreational pot is likely to generate buzz in the first state in the nation to legalize marijuana.

The little-noticed provision is part of a larger bill that Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law Thursday that includes a ballot initiative in November and a permanent tax cut on recreational pot sales in 2017.

"This fiscal glitch that we have with the constitution ... that's part of the magic of living in Colorado," the Democratic governor said.

The impetus is the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights, a measure championed by conservatives. The constitutional provision requires voters to approve new taxes based on estimates of collections and state spending. If the actual amount exceeds the estimates, refunds are necessary.

Colorado isn't collecting more pot taxes than expected — actually, the amount is far less than projections — but total state spending exceeded initial estimates because of the improving economy.

"This is only a first-year problem," said Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, who authored House Bill 1367. "We'll never have this problem again."

When triggered, TABOR also requires the tax rate to be cut to zero. State lawmakers agreed to eliminate the sales tax for one day to meet the constitutional obligations and then restore it. The tax holiday is expected to cost the state about $100,000 in revenue. The bigger price tag — $3.6 million — is what the state anticipates losing in revenue for a one-day elimination of the 15 percent excise tax on marijuana sales from cultivators to retailers.

Mute Autistic 9-Year-Old Speaks For First Time After Consuming Cannabis Oil

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

cannabidiol cbd cannabis marijuanaI used to think marijuana was just a plant that got me really high and was fun to smoke with my friends. I didn’t realize its medicinal benefits until I began studying the plant as medicine extensively four years ago.

Now, thanks to cannabis-and specifically CBD oil-I believe the plant produces miracles. The latest proof of CBD as a miraculous sorcerer’s stone that aids those previously without a “cure” comes out of Puerto Rico-and it’s a tear-jerker.

Thanks to a rare form of cancer resulting in “severe, non-verbal autism”, Kalel Santiago lived the first nine years of his life without uttering a single syllable. Then, recently, his parents discovered the newfound miracle plant: CBD oil, the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that cures epilepsy and saves lives.

His parents administered the oil on Kalel, and the result was the boy’s first spoken words in his lifetime-and it only took two days of using the medicine to begin seeing the results.

They took home the tiny sample bottle of spray and began giving their son twice daily doses, as directed on the label, right into his mouth. And the results, they say, were startling: Kalel started talking — in just two days.

He surprised us in school by saying the vowels, A-E-I-O-U. It was the first time ever,” Abiel says. “You can’t imagine the emotion we had, hearing Kalel’s voice for the first time. It was amazing. The teacher recorded him and sent it to my wife and me and we said well, the only different thing we have been doing is using the CBD.” Soon thereafter, he adds, Kalel started using consonants to connect his sounds. “He said, ‘amo mi mama,’ ‘I love my mom,'” Abiel says. “I don’t know how to thank [the CBD oil makers].” [Yahoo

Cannabis Might Be the Next Migraine Drug

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

recent review of medical literature, courtesy of the Headache Center at the Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute in Cleveland, Ohio, has shown that cannabis has potential therapeutic effects for the treatment of headache disorders, including migraines.

Some British doctors have been treating headaches and migraines with cannabis since the 1840’s, but nearly worldwide prohibition in the 20th Century made medical cannabis research grind to a halt until fairly recently. Some evidence exists for treating headache disorders with cannabis, but nowadays the standards for prescription drugs have risen, and researchers need to prove the efficacy of a drug before patients can legally take it.

Hopefully, this recent publication will act as a spark for new research into cannabis as a headache treatment, so doctors can start prescribing it. Sufferers of painful migraines and cluster headaches deserve a treatment that’s not only functional, but also void of any harmful side effects.

Headaches or not, cannabis shows strong evidence for pain relief treatment.

“A review of 38 published randomized controlled trials evaluating cannabinoids in pain management revealed that 71 percent concluded that cannabinoids had empirically demonstrable and statistically significant pain-relieving effects, whereas 29 percent did not,” Eric P. Baron of the Cleveland Clinic Department of Neurology and author of the report said.

Human biology can back this up as well.
