AG says Mass. towns cannot ban Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, March, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts towns cannot bar medical marijuana treatment centers from being established within their borders, but they can impose zoning rules on the dispensaries, state Attorney General Martha Coakley ruled on Wednesday.
    
Coakley struck down a Wakefield bylaw that would have barred the treatment centers, but separately approved a bylaw adopted in Burlington that places a moratorium on the facilities until the town completes a further study of zoning issues.
    
Massachusetts voters passed a ballot question in November allowing for the use of medicinal marijuana for patients with certain medical conditions, including cancer, Parkinson's disease and AIDS. The new law allows for as many as 35 dispensaries to open around the state where patients can receive up to a 60-day supply of marijuana.
    
"The (law's) legislative purpose could not be served if a municipality could prohibit treatment centers within its borders, for if one municipality could do so, presumably all could do so," Coakley wrote in her decision rejecting the Wakefield bylaw that would have banned the dispensaries outright.
    
She added, however, that her review also concluded there was nothing to prohibit cities and towns from adopting zoning rules for the treatment centers that could, for example, restrict where a dispensary could be located.

UN official urges US to fight new marijuana laws

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, March, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
VIENNA — The head of the U.N. drug watchdog agency is urging U.S. federal officials to challenge the decriminalization of possessing small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and over in Washington and Colorado.
 
While marijuana remains illegal under federal law, both states legalized possession of up to an ounce in November and are setting up rules to govern growers, processors and retailers.
 
Raymond Yans of the Vienna-based International Narcotics Control Board said in a statement Thursday that Washington is obliged to ensure nationwide implementation of a drug convention "to which the United States is party" and which bans recreational marijuana use.
 
The INCB has no enforcement ability.
 
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said last week the Justice Department has not yet decided whether to sue to block the measures.

Ogre OG - Hybrid

Ogre (Master Kush x Bubba Kush) is a 70/30 indica dominant clone only Kush hybrid. Very earthy smell and taste, with a little sweetness coming from the Bubba. A very nice strain for pain-relief and sleep.

Boulder County awaits state laws, rules on recreational-marijuana businesses

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, March, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
BOULDER -- Boulder County, which still is reviewing more than 40 applications from businesses seeking medical marijuana licenses, now faces uncertainties about what kinds of state laws and regulations might affect the county's ability to control businesses planning to grow or sell marijuana for recreational uses.
 
"We're looking to follow the will of the voters," said county commission chairwoman Cindy Domenico, referring to Colorado voters' November 2012 approval of Amendment 64, which allows individuals age 21 and older to possess, use, purchase or transport one ounce or less of marijuana.
 
However, Boulder County officials -- like their counterparts in county and municipal governments elsewhere in Colorado -- are waiting to see exactly what state laws and rules they'll have to follow, if those local governments decide to allow businesses to grow and sell recreational marijuana within their jurisdictions.
