3 States Where a Legal Marijuana Vote Is Guaranteed This November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, May, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

This could be a transformative year in more ways than one. Not only are voters heading to the polls in six months to decide who should become the next President of the United States of America, but voters in quite a few states could be heading to their respective state polls to decide whether or not to expand the use of medical or recreational marijuana within their state.

Since California approved Prop 215 in 1996 to allow for the compassionate use of medical marijuana in select patients, the currently illicit substance at the federal level has expanded like a weed. Today, following the recent legislative approval of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, there are two dozen states that allow physicians to prescribe marijuana for medical use. Although the ailments can vary from state to state, many terminal cancers, glaucoma, and epilepsy are good examples of ailments with near universal acceptance across legal medical marijuana states.

It sure looks like marijuana legalization will make your weed a lot cheaper

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, May, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

One of the biggest questions surrounding marijuana legalization is whether it will make the drug much more affordable and accessible — and therefore increase use.

Well, some early data is coming out of Washington state, which legalized marijuana in 2012 and began sales in 2014. And it looks like, as drug policy experts long suggested, marijuana's price drops after legalization. Keith Humphreys of Stanford Universityexplained in the Washington Post:

California Marijuana Legalization Story

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, May, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A long-anticipated campaign to legalize recreational marijuana use in the state that produces more pot than any other commenced in California on Wednesday as supporters announced they have collected enough signatures to qualify a voter initiative for the November ballot.

A well-funded and politically connected coalition spearheaded by former Facebook presidentSean Parker said it has collected 600,000 signatures from registered voters — far more than the 365,000 needed — ahead of a July 5 deadline.

Stressing what promises to be a dominant message of the campaign, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom said the 62-page initiative will make it harder for people under 21 to obtain pot and easier for police to crack down on illicit sales than it has been in the two decades since California became the first U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana.

Germany has joined the ranks of Canada and Mexico in announcing definitive actions that will legalize medical marijuana for its citizens within the next year.

On Wednesday, a proposal brought to the table by Health Minister Hermann Gröhe designed to establish a nationwide medical marijuana program received a stamp of approval by the German government. The objective of the measure is to make medicinal cannabis available to seriously ill patients all over the country by creating a system that would allow the herb to be purchased from local drug stores. It would also ensure that weed is covered under health insurance. 

"We want to give the best possible care to the seriously ill," said Gröhe in a press statement

Report: Legalization Has No Effect on Teen Pot-Smoking

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, May, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

A new study to be published in the Journal of Adolescent Health found that, despite much hand-wringing over concern for kids, marijuana legalization had no effect on teens’ access to the drug in Washington state.

“There was virtually no change in the proportion of teens who reported it was ‘easy’ to access marijuana in 2010 (55 percent), compared to 2014 (54 percent) after the new law was enacted, according to the study,” the American Academy of Pediatrics said in a release.
