Medical Marijuana

California's Gigantic Medical-Marijuana Industry Could Be Devastated by an Unlikely Source

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

If you support the legalization of marijuana, 2016 didn't give you much to complain about. Last year, residents in four states approved recreational-marijuana ballot initiatives, doubling the total from the end of 2015, while five new states put medical-cannabis laws on their books. By year's end, 28 states and Washington, D.C., had legalized medical pot.

And there's more where that came from. We saw two battleground states -- Pennsylvania and Ohio -- introduce and pass medical-marijuana legislation without sending it to a public vote. We also saw a continued softening in the public's opinion toward marijuana, which remains an illegal drug at the federal level. Gallup's 2016 poll found that 60% of Americans now want to see the substance legalized nationwide, up from just 25% when California passed the first compassionate-use law in 1996. Legal weed sales have also soared. Cannabis research firm ArcView sees sales reaching nearly $22 billion by the end of the decade, while investment firm Cowen & Co. projects a better-than-23% annualized growth rate leading to $50 billion in legal sales by 2026.

Medical Marijuana Reclassified Under International Law?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, December, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana could receive a much-needed reclassification under international law before 2018.

The World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD), which has played in integral role throughout the years in how marijuana is revered in the eyes of the United Nations, has decided to give some consideration to whether “medical marijuana” should be downgraded from its current classification under the UN Single Convention.

The organization revealed plans last month to hold a special session within the next year and a half to debate this issue, according to a report from Americans for Safe Access (ASA).

A ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ for long-awaited medical marijuana program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, December, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana could finally become a reality next year in Maryland, one of the states slowest to make the drug available for purchase after legalizing sales.

In 2016, regulators awarded long-awaited licenses to grow, process and sell cannabis while grappling with fallout from those shut out of the potentially lucrative industry. Now selected businesses are racing to set up facilities and pass final inspections so the first seeds can be planted and flowers can hit the shelves by the end of 2017, four years after lawmakers legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes.

After State Legalizes Recreational Pot, Governor Wants to End Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, December, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Governor Paul LePage failed to convince Maine voters that legalizing recreational marijuana would be a “deadly” disaster for the state. So now, the avowed Donald Trump supporter is trying to do away with medical marijuana.

Maine voters on Election Day appeared to narrowly approve Question 1, which legalizes two and a half ounces of cannabis and six mature plants for adults 21 and over. But with the margin of victory less than one percent of the vote, legalization opponents called for a recount.

Results from the recount, already delayed thanks to a lack of volunteers from the opposing side to help count, will now have to wait until 2017, as state election officials paused the process Friday for a two-week winter holiday break.
