Legalization

Edible marijuana emerges as key issue in legalization debate

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

BOSTON — If recreational marijuana becomes legal in Massachusetts, it won't be just for smoking.

Edible marijuana products — a broad category that could include such treats as cookies and candy — would also be permitted under the ballot question nearly certain to go before voters in November. As the legalization debate heats up, the smoke-free forms of the drug are quickly emerging as a central focus of discussion.

Edibles caught the attention of the state Supreme Judicial Court, which this past week pointedly ordered revisions to a summary designed to explain the question to voters. The justices said it was misleading not to specify that legal marijuana could include food products.

California Marijuana Legalization Could Usher In New Gold Rush

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, July, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - There is no guarantee California will vote to legalize recreational marijuana in November, but political operative and father of four Daniel Conway has already staked his future on it.

Conway left his job as chief of staff to Sacramento’s celebrity mayor, former Phoenix Suns NBA basketball star Kevin Johnson, to help start the marijuana investment company Truth Enterprises.

He is one of hundreds in the most populous U.S. state already pushing ahead with plans to enter a market experts say will be worth $4 billion by 2020.

Recreational marijuana: Arizona voters may get say this November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

The campaign to legalize marijuana for recreational use submitted 258,582 signatures to secretary of state officials Thursday in an effort to qualify for Arizona's statewide November ballot.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol needs 150,642 valid signatures from registered voters to qualify, and they have likely submitted enough signatures to account for any that may be thrown out. The measure almost certainly will make the ballot, and the proposal is pitting powerful business and social interests against legalization supporters  including medical marijuana dispensaries and marijuana users.

California gets greenlight for vote on legalizing recreational marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

California voters will decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana after Secretary of State Alex Padilla said Tuesday that initiative proponents turned in more than enough signatures to place the question on the November ballot.

A successful vote in California would mean one in every six Americans lives in a state with legal marijuana sales, including the entire West Coast.

The initiative is promoted by a well-funded and politically connected coalition spearheaded by former Facebook president Sean Parker.

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
