Chile Legalized Medical Marijuana but Home Cultivators Still Risk Being Criminalized

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, July, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

In 2015, Chile legalized medical marijuana and now residents of the country are increasingly growing cannabis for medical purposes as the nation begins to loosen prohibition during the implementation process.  Advocates of the cannabis plant are working hard to ensure Chileans with chronic pain have the skills and understanding about how to grow marijuana, even though doing so is still a legal gray area.

Movimental, or “The Movement”, is a non profit organization who is an autonomous, democratic, participative and self-funded organization that includes both users and non-users of cannabis, and their principal objective is to end the prohibitionist policies that have not provided any positive results in recent history.  According to the organization, the past and current policies have generated more problems than solutions, incarcerating thousands and thousands of recreational and medicinal users of cannabis, and exposing them to more dangerous situations than the cannabis itself, and thus creating a culture of narco trafficking.

Weed Finally Decriminalized in New Hampshire

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, July, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

The “Live Free or Die” state just became the last and final one in New England to eliminate the possibility of jail time for possession of small amounts of weed.

Republican Governor Chris Sununu signed a bill to remove criminal penalties for possessing up to three-quarters of an ounce of cannabis or up to five grams of hash.

But, in the words of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper spoken in 2012, don’t “break out the Cheetos or goldfish” just yet.

Decriminalization doesn’t take effect for 60 days, so take out your calendars and start counting.

The new law makes possessing weed a violation-level offense with a fine of up to $300 for adults. Minors caught with either would be subject to a delinquency petition. Someone can be charged with a misdemeanor, however, if they are found with marijuana for a fourth time within a three-year period.

Trump will cripple states if he reverses marijuana legalization

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, July, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

Last month I gave the keynote address at the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo in New York City. CWCBExpo is the trade show for the cannabis industry. I had the pleasure of meeting thousands of like-minded cannabis activists, and the experience was truly refreshing and inspiring on many levels.

I learned firsthand that those in the legal cannabis industry — whether they're growing hemp, medical marijuana or recreational marijuana in Colorado or California or Oregon or wherever — have formed a united front. Everyone at the convention was looking to work together to come up with solutions on how to get the federal government to move forward and embrace this industry, which has grown exponentially.

Massachusetts Legalization Regulations: Senate and House Must Find Common Ground

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, July, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

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 two chambers approved separate bills aimed at overhauling the voter-approved law legalizing the recreational use of marijuana in Massachusetts.

The House and Senate also have to find middle ground on what a city or town wants to do if they want to ban the sale of pot in their community. The House bill allows a board of selectmen to ban marijuana sales from towns, while the Senate would leave it up to voters.

Jesse Ventura Is Fighting Again--This Time, It's To Legalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

Jesse “The Body” Ventura has been a long time supporter of marijuana legalization, but it took a seizure and medical marijuana to turn him into an advocate. Ventura didn't personally experience the seizures. It was someone close to him that suffered from seizures two to three times a week. A helpless feeling as he watched that person suffer and all he could do was hold them and wait for the seizure to run its course.

“Four different pharmaceuticals weren't working. The seizures were continuing,” he said. So he and his friend got in the car and drove to Colorado. “We had no choice.” Feeling fortunate that he had the means to go and friends in the state, he was able to get some cannabis for his friend (illegally, since they weren't residents) and it worked. “This person hasn't had a seizure since,” said Ventura.

New Jersey Legalization Proposal Should Include Social Justice Revisions

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, June, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

There was a hearing yesterday in the New Jersey State Legislature for SB (Senate Bill) 3195, which would legalize small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and older.  This Bill is sponsored by Senator Nicholas Scutari (D-Union). While we are generally supportive of bills such as this, and have reported on New Jersey cannabis policy before, we feel there are a few pitfalls with this one.

Additionally, The Drug Policy Alliance and other civil rights and racial justice organizations have expressed concern over Senator Scutari’s proposed legislation. While they commend Senator Scutari for his leadership on marijuana reform, they are disappointed that the legislation introduced does not include essential components to create a fair and equitable marijuana market in New Jersey.
