Q&A: Can My Employer Fire Me for Legally Using Pot?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — Changing marijuana laws aren’t necessarily making weed more welcome in the workplace.

For now, many employers appear to be sticking with their drug testing and personal conduct policies, even in states where recreational marijuana use is now permitted. Others are keeping a close eye on the still evolving legal, regulatory and political environment.

Voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada voted Nov. 8 to approve the use of recreational marijuana, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska, where it had previously been legalized. (A recount of Maine’s close result is scheduled.) More than two dozen states have medical marijuana programs.

But the drug is still against federal law.

A closer look at what it all means for workers and businesses:

Official Hunter S. Thompson Cannabis!

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

Hunter S. Thompson—an outsized character with an intellect to match—was a man with a keen appreciation for the finer things.
 
Though he is most famous today for Gonzo journalism—the hellbent brand of first-person, possibly drug-induced writing immortalized in Fear and Loathing and Las Vegas—and for having an insatiable appetite for most of the intoxicants known in the western world, Thompson was a very serious journalist. He is responsible for introducing the straight world to the Hell’s Angels (and to Tom Wolfe), wrote one of the definitive dispatches on the Haight-Ashbury’s Summer of Love, and possessed a prescient political acumen that rings true today.
 
He also had one of the finest marijuana supplies then in existence. Thompson’s head stash was so fine that he was happy to inform NORML founder Keith Stroup that Stroup’s supply was trash by comparison. “He always told me my marijuana was dirt-weed, something no reputable stoner would ever be caught smoking,” Stroup once wrote.
 
That must have been some epic shit. What, exactly, did HST have his hands on? The world will soon know—and will get to smoke it.

Can You Smoke Weed in Las Vegas Casinos?

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

When Nevada passed Question 2 legalizing recreational marijuana, the same question seemed to pop into everyone’s mind: Will I be able to smoke weed in Las Vegas Casinos now?

For a tourists craving the late night gambling, alcohol, parties and everything else that goes with Las Vegas, indulging in a toke at the slot machines sounds like the perfect addition a city of easily accessible vices.

But it doesn’t look like a recreational users dreams are coming true anytime soon. According to the Las Vegas Sun, a recent discussion at a meeting of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and Gaming Commission did not favor seeing marijuana in casinos.

“It comes down to something very simple. Maybe the emperor has no clothes. In no way do I feel comfortable in my role as regulator to allow a licensee to permit a felonious act to occur anywhere in their property,” Gaming Commission Chairman Tony Alamo said.

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.
