9 States to Vote Soon on Expanding Legal Access to Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — From California, with its counterculture heritage, to the fishing ports and mill towns of Maine, millions of Americans in nine states have a chance to vote Nov. 8 on expanding legal access to marijuana. Collectively, the ballot measures amount to the closest the U.S. has come to a national referendum on the drug.

Five states – Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada – will consider legalizing the recreational use of pot. Three others – Florida, Arkansas and North Dakota – will decide whether to permit marijuana for medical purposes. Montana will weigh whether to ease restrictions on an existing medical marijuana law.

As the most populous state, with a reputation for trend-setting, California is attracting the most attention – and money – in an intensifying debate over Proposition 64.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, September, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Nearly two years after Oregon voters legalized recreational cannabis with the passage of Measure 91, a strong majority say that it has thus far had a positive impact on the state, new data released by DHM Research shows.

According to the survey, 61% of voters in Oregon believe legalizing cannabis has been a positive development in the state, with roughly 30% stating that they feel it’s had a negative impact. The 61% is a 5% increase over the percentage of voters who voted “Yes” onMeasure 91 in 2014 (56%).

The problems with rushing to legalize marijuana for stoner use in California

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, September, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Californians seem hot to visit a legal pot shop and smoke a joint or munch a weeded brownie. But driving home could be risky.

No one — not even highway patrolmen — knows precisely how stoned a motorist can be before he’s dangerously under the influence of cannabis.

Unlike with liquor, there’s no 0.08% blood alcohol equivalent for marijuana. There’s not even a common Breathalyzer to measure drugged driving. And there’s nothing around the corner.

Big New California Poll Shows Massive Support for Legalization

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, September, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

A new poll from California’s Public Policy Institute puts support for Proposition 64 at a solid 60 percent.

That’s from a poll of 1700 likely voters in the state. Opposition votes trailed, at 36 percent.

That’s right on the mark of previous poll tracking; with less than 50 days to go to the election, legalization seems assured in a state with an economy that on it’s own would make it the sixth largest in the world.

Marijuana-legalization ad plugs money for Arizona schools

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, September, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

The campaign to legalize marijuana unveiled a new ad Thursday touting the potential financial benefits to Arizona public schools.

The ad features a teacher and two parents who said Thursday they support marijuana legalization because the state's education system desperately needs increased funding. The campaign staged a news conference outside of a Tempe charter school, where one of the supporters teaches.

The ad will air on Facebook, Instagram and other digital platforms, said Barrett Marson, spokesman for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. The campaign is spending "six figures" on the ad, Marson said. He said it could also appear on TV.
