Oregon Cannabis Industry Facing Regulatory Uncertainty

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

The Oregon Cannabis Industry is facing both double regulations, and regulatory Uncertainty. While seed-to-sale regulations are becoming the accepted norm in all states which have decriminalized cannabis, the situation in Oregon presents new challenges for industry dispensaries and growers.

That’s because Oregon is regulated by two separate agencies that have control over seed-to-sale and the traceability and packaging of cannabis: the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) that oversees recreational sales and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) that overseas medicinal products.

The reason for the two oversight agencies has to do with timing: recreation was approved first October 2015 when the Oregon Liquor Control Commission approved a set of extensive regulations designed to create a viable, profitable and accountable recreational marijuana industry. The first licensed recreational dispensaries are expected to open in December 2016, while, medicinal products were approved by the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act in November 1998.

American Legion Calls for US Government to Reschedule Cannabis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

The American Legion wants the United States government to get serious, once and for all, about removing the cannabis plant from the confines of its Schedule I classification.

Earlier last week, the Legion passed a resolution at its annual convention aimed at persuading congressional powers to reschedule marijuana to a classification that will bring about more research opportunities. The goal of this newfound decree is to get the federal government to consider lifting some of the restrictions that have long since prevented cannabis from being considered medicine for those soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

The resolution reads:

New Polling has Florida Medical Cannabis Initiative at 70% Support

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, September, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

 

New polling released by Public Policy Polling has found that 70% of voters in Florida support Amendment 2 to legalize medical cannabis, with just 23% opposed; 7% remain undecided. The poll comes roughly two months before the November 8th election.

“Poll after poll has us winning this race in November and finally allowing Florida’s doctors to make the recommendations they feel are best for thousands and thousands of suffering patients in Florida”, says Ben Pollara, Campaign Manager for United for Care, the group behind Amendment 2. “Still, the No On 2 Campaign is doing everything it can to provoke fear and obstruct this important access. And they have a lot of money to do it.”

According to Pollara, they know from their 2014 campaign that “things can change very quickly when you’re out spent”. As such, the group is continuing to build their advertising fund to “make sure we have enough to adequately communicate the truth to undecided (or easily swayed) voters.”

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.
