3 Bills Signed by Gov. Brown Create New Rules for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

Nearly two decades after Californians legalized marijuana for medical use and a year before they may also approve it for recreational purposes, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday approved statewide rules on the growth, transport and sale of the drug.

Signing a trio of bills, the governor created a regulatory system that could be adapted to widespread cannabis use if voters make it legal by passing a ballot initiative next year.

Marijuana advocates have proposed multiple measures for the ballot, and several groups are working to find one they believe will most appeal to voters.

Which Areas Of Oregon Allow Marijuana Sales And Which Don’t?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

Fifty-six percent of Oregon voters in 2014 decided that marijuana shall be legal statewide. That’s the greatest statewide support for legalization of the four states that have passed it. Every adult may possess an ounce of marijuana, grow four cannabis plants at home, possess a half-pound of marijuana at home, and shop in safe retail outlets.

The only problem? If you live east of the Cascade Mountains, there will be no safe retail outlets for you.

As the legislature worked on implementing the will of the majority, representatives of the people living in those eastern counties demanded a compromise. Allow the counties that really, really hate potheads to ban marijuana markets, or they’ll sue to destroy the entire state’s legal marijuana markets.

Measure 91 already contained within it some powerful local control options for those counties. Any county or city could ban marijuana producers, processors, wholesalers, and retailers. But those bans would have to go before the voters in that city or county at the next election. That’s what a majority of Oregon voters decided would be fair.

Uncle Sam to Release 6,000 Federal Drug Offenders

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

In an effort to deal with prison overcrowding, as well as liberate some of those people serving unjust sentences for non-violent drug crimes, the Department of Justice announced earlier this week that it plans to spring around 6,000 prisoners from the joint.

At the end of this month, the Federal Bureau of Prisons will turn loose thousands of inmates that have been rotting away behind bars since the '80s and '90s for drug-related crimes. The majority of these parolees will spend some time on supervised released, with nearly a third of them being deported due to their illegal status.

“Today’s announcement is nothing short of thrilling because it carries justice,” Jesselyn McCurdy of the ACLU told The New York Times. “Far too many people have lost years of their lives to Draconian sentencing laws born of the failed drug war. People of color have had to bear the brunt of these misguided and cruel policies. We are overjoyed that some of the people so wronged will get their freedom back.”

Oregon Cannabis Connection

After a full week of legal marijuana sales to adults in Oregon, the numbers have completely blown Washington and Colorado out of the water! Even being the first to legalize, Colorado’s first week of $5 million dollars in sales paled in comparison to Oregon’s $11 million. And…Oregon has HALF the population of Colorado!

According to the Oregon Retail Cannabis Association, the state’s dispensaries sold an estimated 11 million dollars in cannabis the first week, equaling a quarter of what the state expected to be sold in an entire year. The state estimated tax revenues of only $9 million dollars for the entire year of 2017, which amounts to about 40 million in total sales statewide. By October 7th, just one week in, Oregon sales show just how badly they underestimated the popularity of cannabis.

“We’re seeing about 500 people a day,” Nectar owner Jeff Johnson told KGW TV in Portland, showing the huge numbers of people waiting to buy recreationally.

“There for awhile, towards the end we were thinking we might have to close the doors because we weren’t getting any kind of steady business,” Rachel Clerk, an employee at Fresh Buds, also told KGW.

Canadian Feds Threaten Medical Cannabis Crackdown

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

Vancouver's BC Compassion Club Society and 12 other area cannabis dispensaries are waiting for clarification from Canada's federal government following a threat to call in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)—unless they close their doors. 

John Conroy,  the Compassion Club's attorney, told local News 1130 that he wrote back to Health Canada after they received the threatening letter last month, asking them "to comply with the duty to act fairly that falls upon all administrators when they are going to take action that could adversely affect anyone." 

Vancouver recently became the first Canadian city to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries, which remain officially barred under federal law. The city now has about 80 such operations, with the Compassion Club noted for being the flagship outfit.

Conroy, of the Vancouver-based Cannabis Rights Coalition, fears a replay of the spate of RCMP raids that occurred after the Compassion Club first opened 20 years ago.

Is North Korea 420 Friendly?

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

north korea marijuanaNorth Korea is home to one of the most oppressive governments of the Earth today. In the country, there is absolutely no private ownership, and everything belongs to the state. It is estimated that 150,000 to 200,000 people live within prison camps. There is an approved haircut list. And narcs are planted throughout the country to report suspected citizens of possible criminal behavior.

However, these narcs have nothing to do with marijuana (but they will certainly get you on hard drugs). North Korea doesn’t consider marijuana a drug at all, and is completely legal in the country. That’s right. I can repeat that: marijuana is completely legal in the country of North Korea.

In fact, the plant isn’t considered a taboo, and grows along the sides of the roads throughout the country, which marijuana grows naturally in the Korean Peninsula (perhaps why it developed into a cultural norm). With that, visitors to the country report that people will smoke it freely anywhere throughout the town.

So perhaps these prohibitionists are onto something. Do we really want to live in North Korea? Because if we legalize marijuana recreationally, we will no doubt live in a country like North Korea. First, they give us our marijuana. Then they take our guns, and then all of our private property is seized. (I think this is needless to say, but just in case this is only sarcastic).
