I like to think that my home state, Oregon, is a generous state. Every place I have ever worked at has pooled together donations around the holidays to help needy families. So I was very disturbed to read about how the State of Oregon is rejecting Thanksgiving Day baskets for needy families if they come from the marijuana industry. Per Oregon Live:

Earlier this month a group of women in Oregon’s marijuana industry came up with a plan to donate baskets complete with turkeys and the fixings for a Thanksgiving Day meal for 20 needy families in Eugene.

At first, an agency employee based in the Eugene office welcomed the gift, said Lindsey Jacobsen, a founder of the group. But a few days later, the state reversed course, saying staff was spending too much time making arrangements for the gift.

“It was related to the fact that it was a marijuana-related business and the discomfort by the DHS office that it would give the appearance of some kind of endorsement,” said Gene Evans, a department spokesman.

Report: War on Drugs Creates More Bad Than Good for Children

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

While the War on Drugs has been fought for the past several decades in the name of protecting the youth of America, a recent report has found that this “What About the Children?” approach to combating the insurgence of illegal substances in the United States has all been a ruse intent on sucking kids into a cesspool of addiction and incarceration.

new report published by global drug-reform group Count the Costs reveals that 50-years worth of enforcement-based controls on illegal substances has spawned nothing but ill results. 

The report finds that in forcing the drug trade underground, Uncle Sam has enabled a sickening environment that perpetuates attitudes of discrimination and racism. To make things worse, the whole rotten system is insistent upon spending billions of taxpayer dollars to maintain this ridiculousness.

It goes on to explain that under the guise of public safety, youngsters have been sabotaged and violated by a War on Drugs, which has done nothing but promote street violence, create struggles for families and give way to a land where a non-violent criminal record can cripple any opportunity of achieving what is left of the American Dream.

Latest Studies Confirm Medical Marijuana Is Safe Long-Term

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

The latest Canadian study has confirmed that medical marijuana is a safe option – at least for those that are using it to treat chronic pain. It is, thus far, the largest study to be conducted in regards to the safety of using medical marijuana long term.

Effectively, they found that there are not really any serious adverse effects from using medical marijuana over a long period –  Canadian research gives medical marijuana a thumbs up!

“The largest study of the long-term safety of medical cannabis”

The team at Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) in Montréal, Canada, have been doing research on the long-term safety of medical marijuana. They collected together a group of 215 people with whose chronic pain they were going to treat with marijuana to use as their test group. They had a group of 216 as a control group, whose non-cancer pain was not being treated with marijuana.

Marijuana Decriminalization Rally In Athens, Georgia December 1st

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

athens georgia marijuana decriminalization rallyFor the past year students and citizens of University of Georgia and Athens-Clarke County have been attending commission meetings in a effort to enact some form of marijuana decriminalization for possession of personal amounts (less than 28 grams).

Thanks to the work of our affiliate (Athens C.A.R.E. Project) support is building with the commission. The mayor has expressed interest in this issue but seems reluctant to move forward. The city attorney claims a decriminalization ordinance is not feasible. We contend it is allowable and seek to enact such legislation.

With your help we can accomplish our goals.

On December 1, 2015 we will continue our push for reform but hosting a rally outside Athens city hall and speaking before the commission.

James Bell, Director of Georgia C.A.R.E. Project will be presenting a draft ordinance to allow for a written citation for possession of of 28 grams or less. The goal is to reduce the harm cause by prohibition. A local ordinance will take the case out of state court and eliminate a criminal arrest/record, booking, bond and photographs.

The Rally: A public rally will take place on December 1st – 5:00 pm to 7:00pm on the side walk at city hall. Everyone is invited to bring signs and express your support for this effort. It is important we have a good turn out.

Cancer Patient's Lawyer Says She Can Get Marijuana in Maine

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The lawyer for a New Hampshire woman with late-stage lung cancer says she could get medical marijuana in Maine if New Hampshire health officials issue her an identification card saying she's eligible.

Linda Horan of Alstead wants a judge to order the state to issue her a medical marijuana ID card before dispensaries open in New Hampshire next year. Lawyers for the state argue that would undermine New Hampshire's need to control distribution at its alternative treatment centers.

Horan said after a hearing last week that she may be dead before in-state dispensaries open.

Her lawyer filed affidavits Thursday from Maine dispensary operators saying Horan could get marijuana there with a New Hampshire ID card.

Lawyers for the state didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.



Alaska Marijuana Control Board votes to allow marijuana bars in retail outlets

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

The Marijuana Control Board voted to allow consumption of marijuana at retail stores, which, if approved by Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott, would make Alaska the first state to permit a regulated area for marijuana consumption outside of a person’s home or other private spaces.

The change allows for people to buy marijuana at a retail store and consume it in a designated area on the premises. 

The board voted 3-2 in favor of the amendment, with Loren Jones, public health board member, and Peter Mlynarik, the public safety board member, dissenting.

The regulations will go to the Department of Law for a formal review before heading to Mallott's desk.
