Draft of Colorado Pot Rules Is A 90 Page Tome
Medical marijuana advocates and government representatives on Monday hammered out the final details of proposed new rules that would give Colorado the most comprehensive seed to sale cannabis business regulations in the nation. The rules would govern everything ranging from how a state regulates marijuana cultivation to how dispensary owners keep track of their sales, what makers of marijuana infused pastries should put on their labels.
Several of the rules would place Colorado in unprecedented territory, for instance, requiring marijuana growers to fit cameras at their growth operation so that state auditors can view their crop remotely.
The drafts were put together during more than 60 hours of meetings by the state Department of Revenue's medical marijuana rules work group, a collection of state officials, law enforcement officers, local government representatives and medical-marijuana business owners and patients. So this is just one step closer to all of our dreams that marijuana can become legal as it is a real stepping stone, after all we can’t really legalize marijuana without any state laws in place.
AP Enterprise Ariz Preps For Pot Shop Green Rush
One potential pot shop in Arizona would teach customers how to cook marijuana into treats like cookies and "potcorn." Another envisions offering massages, yoga classes, and marijuana meals to go, while a third wants a simple pharmacy-like shop next to an AIDS treatment centre. That's just the beginning. Now that Arizona voters have narrowly approved a ballot measure legalizing medical marijuana, state officials are preparing for a green rush of sorts. They expect to be inundated with up to thousands of applications from would-be marijuana dispensaries, and with only 124 spots approved state wide, the majority will have to be turned away.
"Most other states, you hang out a shingle and you're a dispensary," said Will Humble, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. "I want to avoid those kinds of abuses." Arizona's medical marijuana measure won by just 4,341 votes this month of more than 1.67 million ballots counted, making the state the 15th to approve a medical marijuana law. Arizona officials are hoping to avoid the problems they perceive in other states, including California, where patients are reported receiving a pot recommendation from a doctor for having a headache.
What Could Be So Bad About Taking Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief
Leonhart is strongly opposed by the drug reform and medical marijuana communities, which had urged senators to ask her tough questions about DEA raids on medical marijuana providers, her refusal to approve a Massachusetts researcher’s request for permission to grow his own marijuana, and other grounds. None of the senators actually did ask about those issues during her confirmation hearings last month, although the senior pain relief issue was also aired then.

DEA raids Okemos warehouse in medical marijuana case
OKEMOS — Federal officials raided a warehouse Tuesday used to grow medical marijuana.
Ryan Basore said law enforcement officials raided a 3,000 square-foot facility at 2360 Jolly Oak Road that he leased to registered caregivers to use for growing medical marijuana. Basore co-owns Capital City Caregivers, a medical marijuana shop at 2208 E. Michigan Ave. in Lansing.
Basore said there were 40 plants in the building, and all were taken. He said other growing facilities near Jolly and Hagadorn roads also were raided, but he did not provide further details.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration executed a search warrant at 2360 Jolly Oak Road on Tuesday night, said Special Agent Rich Isaacson, public information officer for the DEA’s Detroit field division. Isaacson would not comment further, citing an ongoing investigation.
The DEA was assisted by the Tri-County Metro Narcotics Team, a multi-agency drug enforcement squad in Eaton, Ingham and Clinton counties
Get Your Medical Marijuana From an ATM?
PHOENIX - Medical marijuana approved by the voters will soon be available for patients across the state, but the details are still being hammered out about who will get to distribute the marijuana.
But that hasn't stopped some entrepreneurs from trying to cash in on the new law with some new gadgets. What do you think of a marijuana ATM?
Kind Clinics hopes to have their "med boxes" inside medical marijuana dispensaries in Arizona.
Dr. Bruce Bedrick says the ATM-style dispensary technology not only is convenient, but protects against fraud and keeps inventory of the product.
"When they come into the dispensary, they will be able to get a prepaid debit card. Once they put the card into the machine, they'll be asked for their fingerprint, they'll put their finger on the machine, and then they will be able to choose the medicine of their choice at the amount of their choice and it will be dispensed," says Dr. Bedrick.
Bedrick says the ATMs will be located inside medical marijuana dispensaries and he hopes they'll be in place by mid-summer.
Kind Clinics is lobbying for one of the dispensary permits.
