Anchorage Assembly Unanimously Approves First Legal Cannabis Retail Outlet

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, October, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

On Tuesday the Anchorage Assembly unanimously approved a license for the city’s first legal cannabis retail outlet. Given that licenses for cannabis cultivation were approved a few months ago and the cannabis is ready to be sold, this means that Alaska’s largest city will have an operating cannabis retail outlet within a matter of weeks.

The Assembly gave approval to Artic Herby, which will be located in Midtown. Members of the Assembly gave approval to the outlet without discussion; no one showed up to testify for or against (an indication of how legalization has simply become the norm).

Legalizing Medical Cannabis Increases Workplace Participation Among those 50 and Older

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

The legalization of medical cannabis increases workplace participation among those aged 50 and older. This is according to a study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

According to the research, “health improvements experienced by both groups (older men and women) permit increased participation in the labor market”, which led to a “9.4 percent increase in the probability of employment and a 4.6 percent to 4.9 percent increase in hours worked per week”.

The paper – titled The impact of medical marijuana laws on the labor supply and health of older adults: Evidence from the Health and Retirement Study – concludes by stating that; “Medical marijuana law implementation leads to increases in labor supply among older adult men and women”, and that “These effects should be considered as policymakers determine how best to regulate access to medical marijuana.”

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, October, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

The Arizona Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol has launched a statewide TV ad campaign in support of Proposition 205 which would legalize the recreational use of cannabis for everyone 21 and older. The ad, titled “Regulation Works,” can be viewed byclicking here (or by scrolling down to the bottom of this article).

“What can Arizona learn from Colorado?” the ad begins. “We can tightly regulate and tax the sale of marijuana.”

It then continues; “According to the Colorado state government, marijuana use among high school students has not increased since legalization,” the ad states. It shows a citation from a June editorial praising the results of the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, which had just been released by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and found “marijuana use among high school students has not increased and is roughly the same as the national average.”

In New Jersey, a renewed push to make marijuana legal

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, October, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

With Gov. Christie's surprising reversal on expanding the medical marijuana program comes a new batch of very different bills that would allow recreational cannabis in New Jersey.

Christie is not likely to change his strong opposition to legalization, even though he signed a bill last month allowing patients with post-traumatic stress syndrome to obtain cannabis. It was the first time a mental-health condition was added to the list of qualifying ailments.

But lawmakers say three legalization bills introduced this year would get discussions started, in anticipation of Christie's term ending in 2018.

9 States to Vote Soon on Expanding Legal Access to Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, September, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — From California, with its counterculture heritage, to the fishing ports and mill towns of Maine, millions of Americans in nine states have a chance to vote Nov. 8 on expanding legal access to marijuana. Collectively, the ballot measures amount to the closest the U.S. has come to a national referendum on the drug.

Five states – Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada – will consider legalizing the recreational use of pot. Three others – Florida, Arkansas and North Dakota – will decide whether to permit marijuana for medical purposes. Montana will weigh whether to ease restrictions on an existing medical marijuana law.

As the most populous state, with a reputation for trend-setting, California is attracting the most attention – and money – in an intensifying debate over Proposition 64.
