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.

Legalization in the UK: Meet the Political Party Embracing Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, May, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

The political situations in countries where there are more than two viable political parties can be understandably difficult for American audiences to comprehend. Britain is a great example.

The Conservatives, the current party-in-charge, are indeed conservative, and they’re clear to the right of Labour, the leading opposition party. Easy enough.

But then there are the Liberal Democrats, a sort of center-left party—but absolutely more center than leftwho have only the tiniest of presences in the House of Commons, with eight seats out of 650 (and yet more than 100 seats in the House of Lords). They’re not rabid nationalists who eat austerity for breakfast, nor are they socialists. They’re, well, sort of like establishment American Democrats. They’re boring—and lately, they don’t really win too much.

This now may change, thanks to cannabis.

Medical Cannabis has Unprecedented Support in Texas

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, May, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

HB 2107 Advances Through Texas House of Representatives

We have been monitoring various State Congresses across the U.S. and what cannabis policy-related bills they have circulating through them this legislative session.  One of the biggest surprises for me personally is legislative action and support we are seeing in the state of Texas.  We are thrilled to share the news we got today about HB 2107 from the Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy when they posted this:

Medical cannabis has unprecedented support in the Texas House. Now what?
Last Tuesday night, the Public Health committee considered public testimony in support of HB 2107 until nearly 2 a.m. Patients, including military veterans, caregivers, and medical professionals shared their stories and experiences with an attentive and thoughtful committee. The next day, the legislation gained significant traction, jumping from five to over 70 representatives signing on as either joint or co-authors. (Currently 77 co-authors.)
