Rhode Island Lawmakers Want to Legalize Recreational Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, January, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

If successful, the effort would make Rhode Island the ninth state to allow recreational pot

Rhode Island lawmakers announced on Wednesday that they will try to legalize pot, again.

For the seventh consecutive year, lawmakers will introduce a bill that would allow adults to consume marijuana recreationally. But advocates are hopeful that the proposal might finally get a vote this time, in part because of the wins weed had in the 2016 election—some right in Rhode Island’s backyard.

Marijuana Legalization In Europe: Is France Next?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, January, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijiuana, a divisive issue that normally resurfaces in Europe during election campaigns, has come home to France's hotly-contested presidential race.

With eight months to go until the 2017 French presidential election, marijuana - or cannabis, as the French prefer to call it - is an honored guest meme in the candidates' discourse, and a subject of intense controversy among the French electorate.

 

But hold on. The political debate is less about interdiction or legalization but, rather, about the nuances of what many are calling “an unavoidable course:” complete legalization or mere decriminalization.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, January, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

There was $6.7 billion in legal cannabis sold last year in North America, according to a new report by Arcview Market Research. The report isn’t available until February, but was obtained early and reported on by Forbes.

According to the report, the $6.7 billion in legal cannabis sales represents a 30% increase from the prior year, a massive increase for any industry.

“The only consumer industry categories I’ve seen reach $5 billion in annual spending and then post anything like 25% compound annual growth in the next five years are cable television (19%) in the 1990’s and the broadband internet (29%) in the 2000’s”, says Tom Adams, Arcview’s Editor-in-Chief.

Republican Lawmakers Pre-File Bill to Legalize Hemp in New Hampshire

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, December, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

A bill to explicitly legalize hemp has been pre-filed for the 2017 legislative session in New Hampshire by a group of Republican lawmakers; the measure will be discussed when the legislature reconvenes next month.

Under the proposed law – House Bill 151 – hemp would be removed from the state’s Controlled Drug Act. This would allow it to be treated like any other agricultural commodity. The proposal was filed by State Representatives. Daniel Itse, J.R. Hoell, and James Spillane; it also has the support of Senators Harold French and John Reagan.

House Bill 151 – which will be formally introduced at the session’s start on January 4th – has been assigned to the House Committee on Environment and Agriculture. To have a chance to move to a vote in the full House of Representatives, it will need to be passed by the committee by March 3rd. If it does pass the committee and House, it will then go to the Senate; if passed by the Senate, it will go to Governor Maggie Hassan for final consideration. Although Hassan is opposed to legalizing cannabis, she has remained neutral on whether or not the state should legalize hemp.

Plurality of Australian Adults Favor Legalizing Cannabis, Though Many Remain Undecided

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, December, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

A plurality of adults in Australia support legalizing recreational cannabis according to a new survey conducted at the Australian National University.

According to the poll, 43% of Australian adults support legalizing cannabis, with 32% opposed to the move. This is a huge shift from 2013, when a plurality was opposed to legalization; then support was at 34%, with opposition at 44%.

The newest poll found 25% of respondents to be undecided on the issue, indicating that a heavily marketed public campaign in support, or in opposition, to legalization could have a major impact on determining if which side reaches the 50% mark first (though at this point legalization supporters have every reason to be optimistic, while prohibitionists should be quite concerned).
