As Canada Moves to Legalize Marijuana, Shop Owners Ask: Why Wait?

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Cannabis Culture Lounge has everything a pothead might need to feel right at home: $3 marijuana buds, bongs for rent, bags of Skittles and Doritos for sale, and black leather couches where customers can recline in zoned-out contemplation in a pungent haze. Never mind that it is all technically prohibited by Canadian law.


Still, some enthusiasts have higher hopes for the business, which opened more than a decade ago as a kind of speakeasy for marijuana smoking — long tolerated by the city’s authorities. The lounge began selling marijuana after Justin Trudeau was elected prime minister in November.

BERLIN (AP) — More than 4,000 people marched through the German capital in the 20th annual demonstration in support of legalizing marijuana.

Under the banner “legalization is in the air,” the demonstrators started their route Saturday at Berlin’s main train station and ended it at City Hall.

Demonstrators were lobbying for the government to allow broad use of marijuana for medical purposes, expanded research of medical marijuana, and for a regulated marijuana market and end to the prosecution of consumers.

Legalized Marijuana: Are We Good To Grow Yet?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, August, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Together we have fought for legal cultivation in states with recreational and medical cannabis, and the results have been mixed. There are 40 states with medical marijuana laws enacted, and among these are 16 states with laws that pertain to legal, non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD). Several states have passed laws permitting the use of CBD extract containing insignificant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Often utilized for treatment of epilepsy or seizures in critically ill children, it typically comes in oil form.

For the purposes of this article, we will set aside CBD-specific laws. The reason being that CBD-specific laws do not allow for the use of the cannabis plant itself for medical purposes and these states do not allow home cultivation.

Illinois Becomes 21st State To Decriminalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a bill into law Friday that removes criminal penalties for possession of a personal amount of marijuana and replaces them with a civil fine. The new law is effective immediately.

SB 2228, introduced by Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago), makes possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana a civil violation punishable by a fine of $100-$200. With its enactment, adults no longer face time in jail, and the civil offense will be automatically expunged in order to prevent a permanent criminal record. The new law largely mirrors legislation introduced in the House by Rep. Kelly Cassidy, who also sponsored this year’s bill, and reflects amendments Gov. Bruce Rauner proposed when he vetoed a similar bill last year.

Italy Will Consider Ending Marijuana Prohibition Next Week

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, July, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Italy could be well on its way to ending marijuana prohibition. For the first time in history, the Italian Parliament will gather next week to discuss a piece of legislation aimed at legalizing the cultivation, possession and use of marijuana in a manner similar to what the United States has deemed an “experiment” in relation to the taxed and regulated market in states like Colorado.

Although Italy has never really been considered a pillar of drug reform, the latest bill, which was brought to the table by Cannabis Legale, an inter-parliamentary organization whose manifesto suggests the “anti-prohibitionist option on marijuana is no longer just an idea, but…a concrete government strategy,” could push the nation into a realm of influence that serves as a guiding light for other countries, all over the world, that may be considering similar policies.

Federal Government Pushing to Legalize Non-Psychoactive Pot?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, July, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Although there has been a lot of noise reverberating throughout the cannabis community this year, regarding the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s supposed decision over whether to downgrade the Schedule I listing of the cannabis plant, there is increasing evidence that Uncle Sam’s dope-sniffing henchmen, along with a gang of apprehensive federal lawmakers, are scheming up a plan to only unleash that part of the herb that doesn’t get people high.

The stoner nation went absolutely berserk back in April when the DEA revealed through a letter to Senator Elizabeth Warren that the agency was planning to announce a possible Schedule downgrade for the cannabis plant before the end of summer. While the 25-page document did not give any indication as to how this potential amendment to the Controlled Substances Act would be made, the majority of the folks swallowing the news took it as an implication that legalization was right around the corner.
