Legalization

Legal Marijuana Prices Are Plunging in Colorado, but Not for the Reason You'd Expect

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, September, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

As a whole, the marijuana industry has come a long way in a short amount of time.

When medical cannabis was first legalized in California in 1996 for compassionate use, support for nationwide legalization of the drug was only around 25%, per Gallup. A decade ago, just a third of Americans polled supported full legalization efforts. Yet in Gallup's most recent poll, 58% of respondents favored legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use. In separate polls on the legalization of medical cannabis alone, favorability often exceeds 80%.

With public opinion on marijuana rapidly shifting, we've witnessed a recent surge in state approvals. Today, half of all U.S. states have legalized medical cannabis, and four states (along with Washington, D.C.) have allowed adults over the age of 21 to purchase recreational marijuana. In the upcoming elections this November, five more states will vote on recreational marijuana, and four will decide whether to legalize medical cannabis.

Radical Rant: 60 Days to Marijuana Election Night 2016

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, September, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Can you believe we are just 60 days away from the 2016 election? Never before has there been so much marijuana on the ballot to cover—believe me, I know!

In 2010, I inaugurated my Marijuana Election Night™ coverage on “NORML SHOW LIVE,” the live podcast I produced for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws from 2008-2012. California had Proposition 19 on the ballot to legalize marijuana. I was joined by my co-host, Karri Gallaugher, and my friend, Jason “RoLLaJaY” Rivera, at Oakland’s Oaksterdam University.

We streamed live from the campaign headquarters all throughout the day. Karri went to the street to interview the No on Prop 19 protestors who had gathered outside, inaugurating the “Stoners Against Legalization” phenomenon I’ve reported on ever since.

Preparing California for What is to Come: The Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

California has become the epicenter of cannabis reform as the state moves to legalize marijuana for adults via Prop. 64 on the November 8 ballot. Legalization in California would mean that an additional 39 million people in the US would be living under legalization, more than the number of those in the current four legal states and DC combined. With this new policy will come a tidal wave of industry with tax revenues estimated at $1 billion dollars per year.

With this boom on the horizon, what better time and place for the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBE), held at the Los Angeles Convention Center September 8-9 with a day of cannabis business workshops on Sept. 7.  Although California is sure to be a hot topic of conversation, the CWCBE is for everyone, whether from a state with a robust adult use and medical program like Colorado, to newer medical marijuana states like Pennsylvania. The conference has five tracks covering the topics of: starting and running a canna-business; banking and finance; science and information; legislation and advocacy, and industry trends and innovations.

Cannabis Legalization Up for Vote in 5 States; Here’s How You Can Help!

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, September, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

There are five states with cannabis legalization initiatives up for a vote this November. With polling showing all of these up in the air, it’s crucial that proponents of legalization get involved; and you don’t have to live in one of the states voting for legalization to help bring a change.

Below is how to get involved:

Nevada

Nevada’s Question 2 was the first of the recreational cannabis initiatives to officially make the November ballot, and things have been relatively quiet since. Opposition has been almost nonexistent, and advocates recently purchased around $1 million in ad space. But don’t be surprised if opponents spring up in the final weeks, so proponents can’t rest and assume it will remain an easy fight.

An unprecedented number of states will vote on marijuana this fall

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, September, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

This is a pivotal year for American drug policy. More states than ever will consider easing restrictions on marijuana use this November: Voters in five states will decide whether to fully legalize recreational use, while voters in four more will weigh in on whether to allow medical marijuana.

The outcome of these initiatives could set the tone for the national marijuana legalization discussion going forward. Big state victories for the pro-marijuana contingent -- recreational weed in California, medical marijuana in Florida -- could widen the gap between state and federal marijuana policies, ratcheting up pressure on Congress and the next presidential administration to provide a fix.

Marijuana supporters ask Michigan Supreme Court to allow legalization vote

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, August, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

Believers in the right for Michigan voters to decide whether or not the state should legalize recreational marijuana use for people 21 and older are taking the fight to the state's highest court.

MI Legalize, the group behind the effort to place a question about legalizing recreational marijuana use on the November 2016 ballot, filed a motion for the Michigan Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling that the state has no obligation to count all of the the submitted voter signatures. 

"Immediate action is necessary so that the voters are not deprived of their right to vote" on the question in the November election, the Thursday, Aug. 25, motion submitted to the Supreme Court reads, asking for the case to be expedited.
