Legalization

N.J.'s move to legalize marijuana has begun. Here's all you need to know about it.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Although a topic in Trenton for three years, the campaign to legalize marijuana in New Jersey officially begins Monday when a Senate committee will discuss how the potentially billion-dollar  industry should be regulated.

So what will it take for you to be able to legally buy recreational pot in New Jersey? 

Gov. Chris Christie is vehemently opposed to legalizing marijuana and he has six months left on his final term. And the election for governor will matter for supporters of legalizing pot: Democratic candidate Phil Murphy supports legalization but Republican candidate Kim Guadagno does not.

Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Union), the bill's sponsor, said he wants to begin the discussion now to build support among his colleagues in the legislature and across the state.

House, Senate Pot Bill Differences Upset Marijuana Legalization Supporters

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (CBS) — A new version of a recreational marijuana bill is set to come out of committee in the Massachusetts House of Representatives Monday, and some marijuana legalization supporters aren’t happy with it.

Massachusetts House and Senate members have until the end of the month to hammer out a bill that would amend the marijuana legalization measure approved by voters in November.

The House Chair of the Marijuana Committee told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones he expects vigorous debate in both chambers.

New Hampshire Decriminalization Law Awaits Governor’s Signature

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

We have been following the proposed cannabis legislation in New Hampshire’s state Congress closely this session, and we are so glad that the decriminalization measure has passed through both the House and Senate! Now, we await the Governor’s decision on whether or not this will be signed into law.

According to The Washington Times

Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, said earlier this month that he plans to approve the measure, House Bill 640, and applauded the state legislature for passing what he called “common sense marijuana reform.”
If Mr. Sununu signs the bill as expected, the legislation will put the Live Free or Die State on path to join the rest of New England in rolling back penalties for minor marijuana possession.

Legalization Spelling Trouble for MMJ (But It’s Not All Bad)

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

Call us biased all you want, but it’s hard to find much wrong with marijuana legalization.

Legal adult-use cannabis sales have been good for schools, good for the economy and good for social justice. Jobs have been created, potholes have been filled and teachers and police officers (how’s that for irony) have been hired or kept on the job thanks to tax revenue.

Regulated and taxed cannabis sales haven’t caused a massive crime wave (sorry, Jeff Sessions), haven’t led to hordes of stoned teenagers dropping out of life (Instagram is a much bigger threat to society than weed) and haven’t led to dire political or social consequences for the lawmakers and citizens who supported them.

About the only thing we can name that’s been actively and possibly harmed by recreational marijuana legalization is medical marijuana.

Canada’s Cannabis Act Allows 18 and Older to Use Cannabis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

The implementation of Canada’s Cannabis Act is deep into the implementation process.  After watching this process in Oregon, I can only imagine how long the roll out might take in entire country (as opposed to one state).  One piece of the Cannabis Act that has not been given much attention so far is the fact that the country would allow anyone 18 and older to use cannabis.  This is quite different from the U.S., where all of our legalized adult-use/recreational marijuana laws only allow for people ages 21 and older to consume cannabis.

Canada’s Cannabis Act definitely calls for strict regulation regarding youth, however, stating that no person could sell or provide cannabis to any person under the age of 18 and that if one is found giving or selling cannabis to youth or using a youth to commit a cannabis-related offense, they could receive maximum criminal penalties of 14 years in jail.

Michigan Begins Circulating Marijuana Legalization Petitions

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, May, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

The Board of State Canvassers in Michigan unanimously approved the form of petitions to legalize recreational/adult-use marijuana last week.  They were submitted by the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, who plans to begin collecting signatures immediately in hopes of making the 2018 ballot.

According to The Detroit News:

Petitioners will have to collect at least 252,523 valid voter signatures within a 180-day window to qualify for the ballot.

“We’ve got petitions printed and we’re ready to go,” said spokesman Josh Hovey, noting the group will use paid petition circulators through National Petition Management of Brighton.
