Legalization

Is it Cannabis Or Is It Marijuana?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, August, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Many people may wonder what the difference is between these terms, if any.  The fact of the matter is that the answer to this question is deeply rooted behind years of propaganda and conjecture that have been fed to us by the U.S. Federal Government.  These two terms actually mean the same thing, but the term Marijuana has everything to do with why this seemingly limitless plant is still federally prohibited in our country today. 

‘Marijuana’ was a slang term that followed the many Mexican immigrants who were seeking refuge from civil war in the early 1900’s. Most people at that time didn’t realize that Cannabis and Marijuana were one and the same. The term ‘Marijuana’ was adopted by the propagandists of the time in an attempt to attach a racist and negative stigma to its public perception.

Former GOP Congressman State Finance Director Tom Campbell Endorses Prop 64

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

SACRAMENTO, CA—Today, Tom Campbell, the respected former Republican Congressman and legislator, former Director of the California Department of Finance under Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and current law school professor at Chapman University in Orange County, officially endorsed Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, which will be on the statewide ballot in November.

“Proposition 64 is a smarter, safer and more fiscally sound approach to adult-use marijuana than what our state is presently doing,” said Campbell. “It will save law enforcement and state taxpayers tens of millions of dollars in reduced enforcement costs that can and should be dedicated to anti-drug education. It will also reduce the underground marijuana market and loosen the stranglehold of the drug cartels.”

“Our present approach, by contrast, puts too many young people into jail, has a racial impact that is very harmful in our state, and makes money for criminals,” he continued. “I have never smoked marijuana, and I do not advocate anyone doing so. But I know the difference between a public health problem and a law enforcement problem. Proposition 64 is the right solution at the right time for California.”

The Future of Growing Marijuana Legally

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, August, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

When I was growing up you had to be careful where you kept your weed. The business was still very much at the brown paper packet stage. We had not reached the point where packaging cost more than the product. In the wine industry, though, bottle makers were already earning more than people that made the grapes, and I didn’t even dare to mention the printers doing the labels.

I notice the same trend developing on the paraphernalia side of things. I can still find good deals in a headshop I have been using for a while. Other suppliers seem less interested in making quality products at a price that I can afford. The wine industry is once again a case in point. ‘Terroir’ or the district where the wine comes from has become a horror word to shoppers, and is doubling the price of certain bottles.

Nashville Could Be On Its Way to Decriminalizing Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, August, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Although support for marijuana reform has historically been less than favorable in the state of Tennessee, a few city council members in Nashville have taken leadership on the issue by introducing a modest proposal aimed at eliminating the criminal penalties associated with minor pot possession.

On Tuesday, the council puts its initial seal of approval on a measure that would make the possession or casual exchange of up to a half-ounce of weed punishable with a $50 fine rather than jail. The measure, which was brought to the table by Metro Councilman Dave Rosenberg and two others, also comes with a secondary option that would allow the offender to pay off his or her debt to society through 10 hours of community service.

As Canada Moves to Legalize Marijuana, Shop Owners Ask: Why Wait?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, August, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Cannabis Culture Lounge has everything a pothead might need to feel right at home: $3 marijuana buds, bongs for rent, bags of Skittles and Doritos for sale, and black leather couches where customers can recline in zoned-out contemplation in a pungent haze. Never mind that it is all technically prohibited by Canadian law.

 

Still, some enthusiasts have higher hopes for the business, which opened more than a decade ago as a kind of speakeasy for marijuana smoking — long tolerated by the city’s authorities. The lounge began selling marijuana after Justin Trudeau was elected prime minister in November.
