Oregon airport allows marijuana on in-state flights

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

(CNN)Want to fly with your marijuana?

If you're flying within the state of Oregon, you're in luck.

The Portland, Oregon, airport will now allow you to fly with it in-state, provided you are carrying the legal amount, according to CNN affiliate KPTV.

As of July 1, people in Oregon can possess and use marijuana if they are 21 or older. They can have up to 8 ounces in their homes and grow up to four plants out of public view. Oregon residents also can carry up to an ounce outside their homes, although it's illegal to smoke it in public.

But they can't transport it out of state.

And the new airport rule doesn't mean it'll be smooth sailing through the security checkpoints operated by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

Federal law governs the TSA's screening procedures, and marijuana remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government. But the agency's primary mission is to "detect threats to aviation security," according to the agency.

New Senate Bill To Let Marijuana Dispensaries Finally Access Banks

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

A new bill introduced into the U.S. Senate aims to offer protection for financial institutions that want to conduct business with marijuana dispensaries.

Since marijuana is still a Schedule I drug, banks have been incredibly reluctant to enter into business relations for fear of running afoul of federal regulators and laws concerning money laundering, Marijuana.com reports.

Support for marijuana continues to build in Congress. Four states and the District of Columbia have legalized the drug, and this legislation, backed by the Senate delegations from Oregon and Washington, would prohibit regulators from cracking down on banks in the form of terminated FDIC insurance, asset seizure and prosecution for money laundering. The Marijuana Businesses Access to Banking Act also prevents prosecutors from joining into the fray, so long as industry complies with state law.

California Governor Signs Medical Marijuana Organ Transplant Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

california governor jerry brown marijuanaToday Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 258, the Medical Cannabis Organ Transplant Act.  AB 258 prohibits discrimination against medical cannabis patients in the organ transplant process, unless a doctor has determined that medical cannabis use is clinically significant to the transplant process. Medical cannabis patients in California have been routinely removed from the organ transplant waiting list if they test positive for cannabis use – even legal doctor-recommended medical cannabis.  AB 258 was authored by Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) and sponsored by Americans for Safe Access (ASA).

“AB 258’s passage is the result of ASA’s membership tirelessly work for over two years,” said Don Duncan ASA’s California Director. “In California legal medical cannabis patients will never again face a choice between their doctor-recommended medicine and a life-saving organ transplant. Governor Brown deserves credit for protecting medical cannabis patients from this harmful discriminatory practice that has no bias in medical research.”

On June 15th over 200 patients and advocates participated in the ASA California Citizen Lobby Day, which focused on educating lawmakers about AB 258 and other medical cannabis legislation. During the lobby day ASA began a postcard campaign to encourage Governor Brown to support AB 258.

“AB 258’s passage represents a big victory in the fight to end discrimination against medical cannabis patients in California,” said Steph Sherer ASA’s Executive Director. “With AB 258 passing by such overwhelming margins in California we hope to see more states follow suit by passing legislation to end organ transplant discrimination against medical cannabis patients.”

Year of legal marijuana nets state $70 million in pot taxes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

SEATTLE (AP) - Washington launched its second-in-the-nation legal marijuana market with just a handful of stores selling high-priced pot to long lines of customers. A year later, the state has about 160 shops open, tax revenues have soared past expectations and sales top $1.4 million per day.

And who knows - the industry might even start making some money.

Washington pot farmers, processors and retailers have complained all year that heavy state and federal tax burdens, along with competition from an unregulated medical marijuana market, have made it difficult for them to do business.

But at least some relief is here: This month, two new laws take effect, one to regulate and tax medical marijuana, and one to cut Washington's three-level excise tax on pot to a single, 37-percent tax.

Despite some industry gripes and those tweaks to Washington's legal pot law, which voters passed in 2012 to legalize marijuana for adults over 21, officials and legalization backers say the state's slow and deliberate effort to regulate marijuana has been a success.

A year after stores opened on July 8, 2014, here's a look at the state of legal weed here.

MARIJUANA DISPENSARY SUES SANTA ANA POLICE OVER RAID

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

A Santa Ana marijuana dispensary has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit following a raid where police officers are accused of eating marijuana edibles.

Attorney Matthew Pappas says he has new video which definitively proves Santa Ana police officers ate marijuana edibles during the raid of a marijuana dispensary in May.

Pappas noted the edited surveillance video, which prompted a federal lawsuit against the city, shows officers talking about and appearing to eat pot edibles.

The video prompted the Santa Ana Police Department to place three officers on administrative leave. The Orange County district attorney is also investigating to see if any criminal actions were taken by the officers.

Santa Ana Police Chief Carlos Rojas admits some of the actions shown in the video were inappropriate, but continues to stand by his officers when it comes to the edibles allegations.

"We do have information that leads us to believe that they are not consuming edibles," said Rojas, who would not elaborate, citing a personnel matter.

Alaska's marijuana board holds first meeting, wants changes to laws

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

FAIRBANKS—The newly appointed Marijuana Control Board's first meeting ran nearly six meandering hours as its members settled into their new roles, but it produced a list of four proposed changes to Alaska's marijuana laws.

The board, by unanimous vote, signed off on a wish list of statutory changes it wants the Alaska Legislature to change in last year's ballot measure that legalized commercial marijuana. The board met in Fairbanks.

The four issues include allowing cannabis clubs, updating the criminal law, clarifying the difference between a personal grow and an illegal operation, and giving villages the ability to opt out of commercial marijuana sales.

During the campaign, sponsors said communities and villages that didn't want commercial marijuana sales could opt out, but the language used in the initiative is proving to be a problem.
