Harmful Medical Marijuana Tax Bills Advance In California

(via dailyfinance.com)

Marijuana taxes are a two edged sword. On one hand, the tax revenues that the marijuana industry generates (or can generate) are very popular with the public and elected officials. But on the other hand, if taxes are too high, it can really hurt the cannabis consumers that rely on safe access the most. Marijuana can absolutely be taxed too much, and unfortunately that’s exactly how some politicians in California would have it. See the troubling alert that I received below:

Two bills that would impose new taxes on medical marijuana patients advanced out of committee on Friday, and will soon face floor votes — one in the Senate and one in the Assembly. Either bill alone would place a new financial burden on patients. Together, they are a one-two punch that could create a huge, out-of-pocket cost for medicine.

SB 987 would add a 15% tax for patients in addition to the sales tax they already pay. AB 2243 layers in additional taxes that businesses would pay. Both types of taxes would come out of the purses and wallets of patients, who often have limited incomes. No insurance company currently helps offset the costs of medical marijuana.

New York’s Cannabis Growers Lobby for More Medical Patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

New York’s medical marijuana program is considered one of the most restrictive in the nation, a ragtag system currently providing fewer than 4,000 patients across the entire state with access to cannabis products. However, in an attempt to prevent the newfound industry from sinking into the depths of impoverishment, the five companies selected by the state to cultivate and distribute this alternative treatment option to people suffering from serious or life threatening conditions have banded together in an effort to persuade lawmakers to support upgrades to the Compassionate Care Act.

Since the program was launched at the beginning of the year, the 20 medical marijuana dispensaries responsible for servicing patients throughout the state have listened to crickets predicting bankruptcy if adjustments are not made, and soon, to provide more people with the freedom to choose weed over the pharmaceutical circus. It is for this reason that, for the sake of longevity, the five companies that make up the market have formed the Medicinal Cannabis Industry Association – a lobby group hoping to convince more members of the NY General Assembly to expand the program before it chokes on its own conservative leash.

State House passes changes to medical marijuana pilot program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana advocates in Illinois won a big victory in the waning hours of the legislature's spring session.

The Illinois House passed a measure on Monday that would change the program's expiration date to 2020, expand the number of qualifying conditions and make it easier for patients to access medical marijuana.

In a rare display of bipartisanship, Republicans Gov. Bruce Rauner and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin reached an agreement with Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang to extend the medical marijuana pilot program.

Last week the Toronto Police Department raided dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries as part of ‘Project Claudia.’ The raids were a huge waste of money. I saw one activist post that it cost as much as 2.5 million dollars to carry out the raids. This of course coming at a time when support for medical marijuana in Canada is overwhelming, and the country is in discussions to legalize cannabis for adults for all uses. Below is the official press release from the Toronto Police Department which lists the exact locations raided. You can find out how to contact the Toronto Police Department at this link here to tell them how you feel about it:

On Thursday, May 26, 2016, at noon, the Toronto Police Service executed 43 search warrants throughout the city of Toronto under the name “Project Claudia.”

Members of the Toronto Police Service Drug Squad conducted an investigation into a number of locations known as “storefront cannabis distributors.”

It is alleged that:

– the investigation revealed cannabis marijuana, cannabis resin, cannabis oil and various “substance edibles” were being advertised and sold(image via Facebook)

COLUMBUS — Ohioans won't be voting on medical marijuana this fall because Marijuana Policy Project dropped its campaign after lawmakers passed a comprehensive plan Wednesday.

National marijuana legalization powerhouse Marijuana Policy Project, and its local affiliate, Ohioans for Medical Marijuana, announced Saturday they would suspend a campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Ohio. The group had been working to collect the more than 305,000 valid signatures it needed by July 6 to make the November ballot.

Veterans Affairs Hospital Blocks Cannabis Lecture

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite an encouraging word from Capitol Hill suggesting that federal lawmakers are beginning to loosen up when it comes to allowing physicians with the Department of Veterans Affairs to discuss medical marijuana with their patients, some VA hospitals are still refusing to allow any information regarding cannabis to be discussed in their facility.

Dr. Sue Sisley, a Phoenix-based doctor who has received federal approval to conduct a first-of-its-kind study on cannabis and PTSD, recently reached out to the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Medical Center in hopes of presenting its physicians some details of her latest research. However, the hospital rejected her proposal, even though Sisley says some of the doctors on staff likely have a number of patients who could benefit from participating in the study.
