Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Bill Back In Action

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, February, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Pennsylvania lawmakers have been sandbagging a restrictive medical marijuana bill for the past several months, mostly in fear that pushing through any measure would lead to someone, somewhere getting stoned, it seems the proposal has been resurrected by the state legislature and is scheduled for a House vote later next month.

"I have heard the House leadership has promised the people desperate for medicine that there will be a vote the week of March 14,” Senator Daylin Leach, a co-sponsor of the bill, said in a statement. “I believe and assume that the House leadership are men of their word. Unless SB3 passes identically to what the Senate passes, it will have to come back to the Senate. We will evaluate it carefully at that time."

Canadians just won the right to grow medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Canadian medical marijuana patients have won the right to grow their own bud in a landmark court ruling released Wednesday.

Federal Judge Michael Phelan has ruled in favor of four British Columbia residents, declaring the country's medical marijuana regime, known as the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), unconstitutional.

This means that the federal law passed by the former Conservative government of Stephen Harper has no force and effect.

In a groundbreaking exhibition rich with opportunities for public input and dialogue about the uses and evolving attitudes about marijuana, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will open Altered State: Marijuana in California, the first-ever museum exhibition to focus on the topic, April 16, 2016, in its Great Hall. Set against the backdrop of a likely California ballot measure in 2016 to legalize marijuana’s recreational use, the exhibition features artwork, political documents and posters, scientific displays, and interactive and multimedia exhibits all meant to provoke questions and conversations about the provocative plant.

Designed as a catalyst for conversation and reflection, the exhibition explores the many ways that people consider marijuana, including historical, social, and political perspectives, scientific data, and opinions of a diverse range of community members and groups. Organized into ten different areas of focus—Cannabis Science, Medical Marijuana, Profitable Pot, Sacred Ganja, Criminal Dope, Creative Grass, Evil Weed, Politically Loaded, Youth and Weed, and Recreational Reefer—Altered State will provide the opportunity for Museum visitors to add their voices to the evolving conversation.

“We have designed an open and participatory experience to engage anyone who has an opinion or wants to learn more about the complex issues and information about this topic, which is relevant to all Californians,” says Associate Curator of Natural Sciences

Australia Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

 

After listening to some powerful testimony by lawmakers and members of a national marijuana advocacy group, the Australian Parliament voted on Wednesday in favor of legalizing a nationwide program that will allow cannabis to be grown across the country for medicinal and scientific purposes.

According to a report by The Sydney Morning Herald, Senate lawmakers have officially put their seal of approval on amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act, which, in turn, will lead to the creation of an authority to oversee the licensing of cannabis farms and the nationwide distribution of medical marijuana products.

Detroit Mayor Duggan’s Anti-Marijuana Bit Reveals City Bias

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan delivered his State of the City speech on Tuesday, February 23; in it he delivered a controversial accolade for a medical marijuana dispensary foe and received multiple rebukes from protesters representing the Black Lives Matter organization.

Detroit will begin the licensing process for medical marijuana distribution centers, or dispensaries, on March 1. In advance of that licensing process the city’s distribution centers report raids and intimidation by the Detroit Police Department. The pair of ordinances controlling the licensing and zoning rules were initiated by Detroit’s church and civic groups, and are strongly opposed by the medical marijuana community.

You know where Mayor Duggan stands on the issue when you know where he stood to deliver his State of the City speech on Tuesday: the Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit.

The Mayor later introduced the pastor of Second Ebeneezer Church as a member of the independent Police Commission, a Board whose duties had been suspended by the Emergency Financial Manager (EMF) and restored by Council in December.

Pot Cultivation Replaces Prison Economy in California Town

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Adelanto, a poor city in San Bernardino County, was traditionally known for its fruit orchards and cider before it got into the mass incarceration business over two decades ago, when it welcomed the building of four prisons on its relatively small land area.

For the town’s 32,000 inhabitants—one-third living below federal poverty levels—prison jobs sounded good.

Today, however, another industry is tapping on the entrance of this semi-arid Mojave Desert town with an even better offer.

Last November, Adelanto, which means progress in Spanish, became the second city in Southern California to permit commercial cultivation of medical marijuana.
