Legalization

Arguably the Most Important Marijuana Decision Ever Is Just Weeks Away

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

You'd be hard-pressed to find an industry with faster growth potential than marijuana.

Since it was first approved in California 20 years ago, medical marijuana has become legalized throughout half the country. Most interestingly, the last two states to legalize medical marijuana -- Pennsylvania and Ohio -- have done so entirely through the legislative process (i.e., without bringing the matter to vote by residents of the state). We've also witnessed four states (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska), as well as Washington, D.C., legalize recreational cannabis.

The growth figures are huge. ArcView Market Research, a leading cannabis research company, suggests that 30% compound annual growth is possible between 2015 and 2020. This would put the legal-marijuana industry on pace for nearly $22 billion in sales by 2020, based on ArcView's estimated $6.7 billion in legal sales for 2016.

June 26: Washington, DC Support. Don’t Punish Day Of Action

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Check out the worthwhile event below:

Support. Don’t Punish. is a global advocacy campaign to raise awareness of the harms being caused by the war on drugs. The campaign aims to promote drug policies that respect human rights and protect public health, to change laws and policies that impede access to harm reduction interventions and other evidence-based services, and to end the criminalisation of people who use drugs.

The United States’ government is a financial disaster and societal menace. It’s responsible for bloated government budgets and broken communities, especially those of lower financial classes and people of color. On June 26th, we seek to educate the public on the how their representatives are waging war on them, both financially and socially, through the guise of the war on drugs. With local, state, and federal expenses put together, the average household spends anywhere from $296-$412, depending on the state, on maintaining incarcerated drug offenders.

We will be posting up at some key DC landmarks with Support Don’t Punish shirts, signs, and literature in an attempt to engage residents and tourists on the issues. Emphasis will be placed on the personal and governmental economic stress accrued by the drug war and the resulting failure of the criminal justice system.

Details on where/when to meet are TBD. If you are interested in being directly involved with sign making and planning, please contact Daniel Miles at daniel.miles@ssdp.org

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom: Marijuana Legalization in California Is Not a Done Deal

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Although Sean Parker’s controversial marijuana ballot measure is considered by some to be the great green hope in terms of bringing prohibition to an end in California later this year, many advocates for the initiative, including Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, are concerned that the cavalier attitude among the public could sabotage legalization efforts for many years to come.

During the recent Cannabis Business Summit and Expo in Oakland, Newsom told those in attendance that he is becoming increasing unnerved by the political forces throughout the state that are still too scared to come out in support of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA). He worries that all of this reluctance threatens to destroy the chances the initiative has at being well received by voters in the November election.

Leveling The Playing Field In Florida With CFL NORML

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, June, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

After a narrow defeat in 2014, Florida voters will have another opportunity to legalize medical marijuana this November by voting YES on Amendment 2, but not before being inundated with misinformation from some of Florida’s most notorious marijuana prohibitionists. With more than $10 million dollars committed to defeating the measure, Floridians can expect a salvo of refer madness unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. Even in states that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana – Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska – anti-marijuana groups spent roughly $800k between all four states fighting legalization efforts.

In an effort to level the playing field, Central Florida Chapter of the National Organization of the Reform of Marijuana Laws (CFL NORML) led by executive director, Christopher Cano, recently launched a grassroots fundraising campaign with a goal of $250,000 to combat the continuous flow of fear mongering and attacks expected this fall. Indiegogo, the crowdfunding platform being utilized by the organization features a video produced by CFL NORML, pictures of past events, and of course a donation page where contributions can be made.

“We are appalled at the gross amount of funds the opposition plans to spend in order to continue the unjust policy of marijuana prohibition in Florida,” Cano said. “The Medical Marijuana Movement should be about one thing and one thing only, the patients. Mel Sembler and his No On 2 allies are willing to spend obscene amounts of money to hurt veterans and sick patients, and we simply are not going to take that laying down”.

Push To Legalize Marijuana In New Jersey

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, June, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – Fresh off a tour of Colorado, a New Jersey State Senator is prepared to offer legislation that would, if approved, legalize recreational use of marijuana in the Garden State.

Union County Democrat Nick Scutari didn’t sample the product, but noted how efficient and easily the state is running marijuana sales. Few problems for law enforcement, a lot of tax money coming in.

“I don’t see how any reasonable and logical person can come to any other conclusion that we should legalize it, tax it and regulate it here in New Jersey,” Scutari told KYW Newsradio.

Just how much money is at stake?

Gov. Kasich signs Ohio's medical marijuana bill into law

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

A bill authorizing physicians to prescribe marijuana derivatives to treat a host of health conditions was signed into law this afternoon by Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The second-term Republican had expressed support for the concept, but his office had not said whether he would sign the hard-won legislation until he studied its details. He signed the bill within a couple of hours of it landing on his desk.

The bill passed the Republican-controlled General Assembly — by a 18-15 vote in the Senate and a 67-28 vote in the House — on May 25.
