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.

BERLIN (AP) — More than 4,000 people marched through the German capital in the 20th annual demonstration in support of legalizing marijuana.

Under the banner “legalization is in the air,” the demonstrators started their route Saturday at Berlin’s main train station and ended it at City Hall.

Demonstrators were lobbying for the government to allow broad use of marijuana for medical purposes, expanded research of medical marijuana, and for a regulated marijuana market and end to the prosecution of consumers.

Legalized Marijuana: Are We Good To Grow Yet?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, August, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Together we have fought for legal cultivation in states with recreational and medical cannabis, and the results have been mixed. There are 40 states with medical marijuana laws enacted, and among these are 16 states with laws that pertain to legal, non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD). Several states have passed laws permitting the use of CBD extract containing insignificant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Often utilized for treatment of epilepsy or seizures in critically ill children, it typically comes in oil form.

For the purposes of this article, we will set aside CBD-specific laws. The reason being that CBD-specific laws do not allow for the use of the cannabis plant itself for medical purposes and these states do not allow home cultivation.
