Sunshine State Makes Way For Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder

Jeff Clemens, a democratic representative in the state of Florida has introduced a bill into the state legislature that would allow a vote over medical marijuana. If passed, voters will have the choice to amend the state constitution to include a medical marijuana bill. "We have a lot of people suffering here in the state of Florida, and I don't think we need to be telling them that prescription narcotics are the way to go when we have other, more natural, avenues for them," said Representative Clemens.

 

If passed, the Florida State Legislature would set a limit on number of plants grown, and how much a person can hold at one time. Smoking in public would also be illegal. To pass, the medical marijuana proposition named HJR 1407 will have to gain 60% backing in both the senate and the house.

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder

The Global Commission boasts a 19-member panel that includes the former U.N. Chief and several other high powered world leaders.

 

The Commission said that as enforcement efforts increased, so did the illegal use of drugs. "The drugs are infiltrating the local power in several parts of the world. Corruption is increasing, and the consumption of drugs is also increasing," said Fernando Cardoso, who chaired the commission.

 

Recommendations were made to countries currently fighting the losing battle. The commission recommended decriminalization of most drugs, and an increase in public health policies geared towards drug problems.

Pot Legalization Vote Sought in Nebraska

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder

Frank Shoemaker, a McCook attorney has filed a petition with the Nebraska Secretary of state “to remove all laws regulating the private noncommercial use of cannabis, also known as marijuana.”

 

In the filing Shoemaker asked for a constitutional amendment to the laws that would be put before the Nebraska voters in November 2012. If successful and voters approve, Nebraska will be the first state in the nation to legalize pot.

 

California voters rejected a similar proposal in their state. If Nebraska breaks ground on this issue, the federal government might have something to say about it. Last year, federal officials warned they would consider a lawsuit against the state of California should the initiative pass.

Arizona Health Department Rejects Dispensary Applications: Because they say so

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder

The Arizona Health Department's lobby was turned into a stage when the DHS director Will Humble heard the first medical marijuana dispensary application. Humble immediately rejected the application, and was asked for a defense as to why by the applicant.

 

Why? Because I said so, “ said Will Humble.

 

This is completely ridiculous in my opinion. The DHS Director is miss using his powers to force his own morals and ideas on others. Mr. Humble, I feel like you have just spit in the face of Arizona's voters. After all, they did vote to pass the medical marijuana bill in their state, and all of your states politicians are doing everything in their power to get it shut down.

Seed-to-Sale Strengthens Colorado Against Government

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder

The Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division of Colorado has enacted 77 pages of regulations for marijuana dispensaries that are set to go into effect July 1, 2011. Included in in these regulations is everything from type of locks to be used on dispensary doors to the creation of a Seed-to-Sale monitoring system. This Seed-to-Sale system will help to ward off federal intervention because it creates a closed loop with in the state; meaning marijuana never crosses state boarders.

 

The creation of the Seed-to-Sale system in Colorado stems from a 2005 Supreme Court Case Gonzalez vs. Raich. In this case, the federal government was able to convict a medical marijuana patient of California using the Commerce Clause as justification for intervention. Seed-to-Sale will prevent the government from using this to gain access to Colorado.

 

With this new system, from the moment the seed is planted to the second it is sold to the customer, its identifying information as well as location will be documented . The plant a long with the package will be embedded with an RFID tag, similar to the ones used by Wal-Mart.
