Legalization

What happens to medical marijuana if recreational use becomes legal?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

As she battles symptoms of lupus and depression, Alexandra Rice says she depends on easy access to medical marijuana to control widespread pain and to improve her mood.

The 21-year-old resident of Grand Terrace, near Riverside, has pictures of cannabis flowers on her Twitter profile and friends whose livelihoods depend on the pot industry. She’s also an unlikely opponent of a November ballot initiative that would legalize marijuana for all adults in California.

“If it is legalized, more people who don’t respect it and just want to get high are going to take advantage of that,” Rice said. “And people who genuinely need it as medicine will be misplaced and thrown to the side.”

Outspoken NFL Player Eugene Monroe to Speak at Hash Bash 2017

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, July, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

ANN ARBOR- Outspoken National Football League player and advocate for the legalized use of CBD medicines in professional sports, Eugene Monroe, has agreed to speak at the 2017 Hash Bash in Ann Arbor.

Monroe’s controversial stance regarding marijuana therapies for injured athletes has been mainstream media news material for several months now. It also almost certainly cost him his job as a professional football player with the Baltimore Ravens. Monroe is a Free Agent, having been released from the Ravens team after publishing his thoughts on marijuana.

The announcement of Monroe’s appearance at Hash Bash came from Mark Passerini, known as the Hash Bash’s producer, a principal in the Om of Medicine in Ann Arbor and founding President of the Illinois Cannabis Industry Association. “We are happy to announce that Eugene Monroe has agreed to speak at the 2017 Hash Bash,” Passerini said.

Edible marijuana emerges as key issue in legalization debate

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

BOSTON — If recreational marijuana becomes legal in Massachusetts, it won't be just for smoking.

Edible marijuana products — a broad category that could include such treats as cookies and candy — would also be permitted under the ballot question nearly certain to go before voters in November. As the legalization debate heats up, the smoke-free forms of the drug are quickly emerging as a central focus of discussion.

Edibles caught the attention of the state Supreme Judicial Court, which this past week pointedly ordered revisions to a summary designed to explain the question to voters. The justices said it was misleading not to specify that legal marijuana could include food products.

California Marijuana Legalization Could Usher In New Gold Rush

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, July, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - There is no guarantee California will vote to legalize recreational marijuana in November, but political operative and father of four Daniel Conway has already staked his future on it.

Conway left his job as chief of staff to Sacramento’s celebrity mayor, former Phoenix Suns NBA basketball star Kevin Johnson, to help start the marijuana investment company Truth Enterprises.

He is one of hundreds in the most populous U.S. state already pushing ahead with plans to enter a market experts say will be worth $4 billion by 2020.

Recreational marijuana: Arizona voters may get say this November

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

The campaign to legalize marijuana for recreational use submitted 258,582 signatures to secretary of state officials Thursday in an effort to qualify for Arizona's statewide November ballot.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol needs 150,642 valid signatures from registered voters to qualify, and they have likely submitted enough signatures to account for any that may be thrown out. The measure almost certainly will make the ballot, and the proposal is pitting powerful business and social interests against legalization supporters  including medical marijuana dispensaries and marijuana users.

California gets greenlight for vote on legalizing recreational marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, June, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

California voters will decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana after Secretary of State Alex Padilla said Tuesday that initiative proponents turned in more than enough signatures to place the question on the November ballot.

A successful vote in California would mean one in every six Americans lives in a state with legal marijuana sales, including the entire West Coast.

The initiative is promoted by a well-funded and politically connected coalition spearheaded by former Facebook president Sean Parker.
