Could medical marijuana provide tax dollars for cities?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder

With such a large amount of registered medical marijuana users, the state could be providing large amounts of new revenue by simply taxing and regulating medical marijuana dispensaries that patients have the right to.

Medical marijuana has spawned a burgeoning industry in the United States, creating commerce and generating millions of dollars in tax revenues for states and cities across the country.
But here in Michigan, where it has been legal for nearly three years, the potential economic benefits of pot commerce remain a distant afterthought for state and local policymakers who just want to see some clarity in the law.
Passed as a ballot initiative in November 2008 with a 63 percent margin, the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act has given way to a steadily increasing stream of patients seeking marijuana as a way to ease chronic suffering.
The Michigan Department of Community Health in April 2009 began publishing the number of patients it has registered, a figure that has seen an exponential jump recently. In the first year of patient tallying, the MDCH reported more than 14,000 Michigan citizens were granted certifications for medically recommended marijuana. To date - about a year and a half since then - there are now more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients in the state.

Thats right, for those who aren't aware there are still 4people left in the original federal program that gave medical marijuana to patients with serious ailements. That alone shows you proof that Marijuana has medicinal value and the Federal government is well aware of that.

Sometime after midnight on a moonlit rural Oregon highway, a state trooper checking a car he had just pulled over found less than an ounce of pot on one passenger: A chatty 72-year-old woman blind in one eye.
She insisted the weed was legal and was approved by the U.S. government.
The trooper and his supervisor were doubtful. But after a series of calls to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Drug Enforcement Agency and her physician, the troopers handed her back the card -- and her pot.

Rhode Island needs help with getting access to their medical marijuana. As it stands right now the government won't help at all with moving forward on any plans for medical marijuana patients.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - Rhode Island medical marijuana patients and advocates are calling on Gov. Lincoln Chafee to open three pot dispensaries.
Last Spring, Gov. Chafee suspended plans to open three compassion centers under the state's medical marijuana law.
The decision came after officials learned the facilities could face prosecution for violating federal drug laws.
On Tuesday, protestors gathered at the Rhode Island State House, demanding that Gov. Chafee follow the Rhode Island law and license the compassion centers.


Cancer patient's medical marijuana seized at airport

Luck prevails but at what cost? This poor woman who has breast cancer needs medical marijuan to treat her ailement just like any other medical patient. Why should she be treated any differently than someone carrying a bottle of aspirin, or their prescribed meds?

Indianapolis airport police will destroy a stash of medical marijuana that a 36-year-old breast cancer patient from California tried to bring aboard a flight yesterday.
Transportation Security Administration screeners found the marijuana in luggage after it passed through an X-ray machine at Checkpoint B of Indianapolis International Airport at 3:30 p.m., according to a police report.
The marijuana and a black pipe were found inside a pink case, police said. Screeners had searched the bag because the X-ray alarm had sounded.
Starling Wickes, 36, Van Nuys, Calif., told police she had breast cancer and showed them a medical card that confirmed that she was prescribed marijuana.
But authorities told her that though it was legal to possess and smoke medical marijuana in California it was illegal to do so in Indiana.
They took the pipe, marijuana and glass case and plan to destroy it, according to the report.
Wickes was not charged.
