California backers of legalized marijuana fear possible battle with attorney general pick Jeff Sessions

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Backers of laws allowing marijuana use in California are girding for a possible political and legal battle against President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions, a staunch foe of pot legalization.

Marijuana industry leaders in the state and around the U.S. have launched an opposition campaign to the Senate confirmation of the Republican senator from Alabama and are appealing to the Trump camp to make sure the president-elect’s policies are consistent with his campaign comments that he favors allowing states to decide how to enforce marijuana laws.

Florida: Bong Ban Doesn’t Apply to Medical Pot

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

A Florida law outlawing the sale of marijuana paraphernalia, such as bongs and water pipes, is now even more worthless since the state’s voters approved an initiative legalizing medical marijuana.

According to a report from Florida Politics, the passing of United for Care’s Amendment 2 in the November election has blocked a statewide bong ban, a law which was established in 2013 in an attempt to prohibit the sale or use of “metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plastic, or ceramic” smoking devices commonly used to consume marijuana.

It seems the language of Amendment 2 gives medical marijuana treatment centers the freedom to sell and distribute “related supplies” to those patients qualifying for participation in the program.

Buffalo Bills Tackle Suspended 10 Games by NFL for Medical Pot Use

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The NFL has suspended Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson for 10 games for what the player’s agent tells The Associated Press stems from his client using marijuana to relieve the effects of Crohn’s disease.

The Bills announced the league notified them on Tuesday of Henderson’s suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. It’s Henderson’s second suspension this year after he served a four-game ban to start the season.

Henderson’s agent, Brian Fettner, called the league’s decision “heart breaking,” and added he cannot appeal the suspension because the NFL doesn’t allow an exemption for medical marijuana use.

President Obama’s Drug War Commutations Surpass 1,000

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Continuing with his campaign of clemency for federal drug offenders who were imprisoned under outdated sentencing laws, last week President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 79 more inmates, bringing the total commutations throughout his two terms to to more than 1,000.

This number now far surpasses that of the previous 11 presidents combined. Bill Clinton granted 61 commutations, and George Bush just 11. But White House officials are still rushing to review all of the approximately 6,000 pending clemency applications before the end of Obama’s term.  

In 2016 alone, a total of 839 commutations have been granted.

Are California MMJ Dispensaries Already Selling Recreational Marijuana?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

California’s newfound cannabis trade is not supposed to be up and running until sometime around 2018, but allegedly, that hasn’t prevented some dispensaries from selling recreational reefer in the same manner as they have been slinging the “medical” stuff for the past two decades.

A recent report from the California Weed Blog indicates that ever since the voters approved Proposition 64, an initiative that fully legalized marijuana throughout the state, there has been at least three medical marijuana dispensaries that have jettisoned the concept of a patient needing a doctor’s recommendation and are now selling weed to every adult 21 and over who comes in looking to get stoned.

HIGH TIMES, however, could not confirm all of the report—and found some discrepancies, too.

Vote certifying delay could slow rollout of Mass. marijuana law

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Secretary of State William F. Galvin said Monday that the results of the Massachusetts marijuana legalization measure passed by voters may not be certified in time for it to go into effect Dec. 15, when the drug is slated to become legal for possession and use.

A successful ballot initiative does not officially become law until it is certified by the eight-member Governor’s Council, a Colonial-era body that meets every Wednesday.

Galvin, the state’s top election official, said the earliest that official ballot question voting tallies are likely to be presented is at the Dec. 14 meeting. “And that is a 50-50 proposition,” he said.
