$30 Billion Global Cannabis Market Foreseen

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

This projection is based on a new report from the Brightfield Group, a marijuana market research firm based in Chicago. Currently, the global cannabis market is estimated to be worth $7.7 billion, but a compound annual growth rate of 60 percent is foreseen as countries around the world liberalize their marijuana laws.

The U.S. now accounts for 90 percent of global cannabis sales, the report found (presumably meaning just legal sales). But like other recent studies, the report found that other countries are poised to catch up fast. It predicted the U.S. share will drop to 57 percent by 2021—largely due to Canada’s plans to legalize recreational cannabis by July 2018. Several countries in Europe and Latin American are not far behind.

Forbes also noted that as Germany’s political parties—from conservatives to the Greens—continue their talks on forming a coalition government, part of their discussions includes an agreement on “fully legalizing” cannabis. Actually, the proposals call for marketing the herb through pharmacies or licensed dispensaries, which many would say stops short of full legalization. But German authorities have already allowed limited home cultivation for medical users.

Lance Kendricks is Second Green Bay Packer Charged with Possession

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

GREEN BAY, Wisc. – Another Green Bay Packer was caught for marijuana possession by police last September. Lance Kendricks, tight end for the Green Bay Packers, was stopped by police on Sept. 2 and was charged with marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. The incident previously went unreported and was first reported by TMZ on Nov. 25.

Kendricks was returning home from a Wisconsin Badgers game when he was pulled over by police for speeding (driving while black) and denied having any marijuana in his possession at first. He later admitted to having weed in his glove box after police said they "could smell a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle." Kendricks used to play football for the University of Wisconsin.

 

Police say that Kendricks was clocked driving 81 mph in a 70-mph zone. Police found a Louis Vuitton bag containing a glass container of marijuana along with a grinder and a couple of packs of rolling papers. The football player was given a warning for speeding, but is being charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The case will be handled by the Outagamie County District Attorney’s Office.

This Country Could Soon Legalize Cannabis And Opium

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabis legalization has ramped up in recent years, and it’s not only in the U.S. Uraguay recently became the first country to fully legalize marijuana, and Canada is set to do the same this July. However, there could be another prominent country with something big in the works when it comes to pot legalization. Yes, India is set to discuss the potential legalization and regulation of both cannabis and opium.

A Progressive Outlook

Member of Parliment, Dharamvir Gandhi, has proposed a private member’s bill that will regulate cannabis and opium and fully legalize medical marijuana throughout India. According to Indiatimes, his bill will be discussed by the Parliment in the upcoming winter session. The proposed bill has already been passed by the legislative branch of the parliament.

Technically, Gandhi’s bill wouldn’t fully legalize the drugs for recreational purposes, but it would decriminalize and regulate both opium and cannabis throughout the country.

Peru: Medical Marijuana Bill Signed Into Law

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Last week, Peru’s President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski signed a bill to legalize the use of cannabis products and derivatives to treat medical conditions such as cancer and epilepsy. PPK, as the president is popularly known, hailed the law as opening a new chapter in his country’s approach to the herb.

“Here we are breaking with a myth,” he said, referring to marijuana’s reputation as a dangerous drug. “Peru is turning several pages, moving toward modernity.”

He especially congratulated the congress members who pushed for the law, naming Alberto De Belaunde, Tania Pariona and Gloria Montenegro, who all attended the signing ceremony. Also in attendance were members of the collective Buscando Esperanza (Seeking Hope), made up of mothers who need medicinal cannabis for their ailing children.

Florida Man Sues Over State Ignoring Marijuana Law

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— A Florida man suffering from epilepsy is suing Gov. Rick Scott and the state of Florida due to the governor and his administration’s slower than molasses completion of Florida’s medical marijuana legislation. Medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2016.

Michael Bowen filed a lawsuit along with co-plaintiff Bill's Nursery, a medical marijuana farmer, on Tuesday. The suit requests the judge to order that licenses be granted by the Department of Health to treatment centers now. As of October 3, at least 10 licenses were supposed to be given but so far just 6 have been granted.

 

Bowen has severe grand mal seizures and other traditional treatments have failed him. He used to take up to 600 mg of barbiturates on a daily basis which left him clumsy and did not allow him to function. He says that with medical marijuana he can live a functional life. A spokeswoman for Florida’s Department of Health, Mara Gambineri, said that they are "diligently" working to implement the new law.
