Election 2016: How Legalization Became a Sure Thing In California

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, October, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

In America, it’s generally unwise to bet against the billionaires. And in California, the billionaires are behind legalization—in a big way.

The rich and powerful are pouring money into Prop. 64, the ballot measure that would legalize small amounts of cannabis for adults 21 and over in the nation’s most populous state—the home of the biggest and most sophisticated cannabis industry on the planet.

With just over a month to go before Election Day, pro-legalization forces had recorded more than $18 million in campaign contributions, according to the most recent campaign finance records, swamping the paltry $2.4 million raised by the prohibition set.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, October, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) — The hills on the Arizona border with Mexico are steep and bumpy as Paul Estrada drives along the fence, patrolling for drug and human smugglers.

Passing traffic signs pocked with bullet holes, the sheriff’s deputy points at parts of the wall that are but a few feet tall and laments how easy it is to get drugs into Arizona. In a mere month, Estrada and his colleagues on the border could confront a new challenge: legal marijuana.

Five states will vote Nov. 8 on whether to allow recreational pot, including Arizona and California, the first two border states to consider the idea.

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.”
