Sacramento City Council finalizes licensing fees for commercial marijuana growers

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

The Sacramento City Council has advanced an ambitious commercial marijuana cultivation program by finalizing local licensing fees for an anticipated 200 cannabis grow rooms expected to flourish in mostly light industrial zones in the capital city.

As a result of council action Tuesday night, city staff is to begin accepting permit applications for the businesses in early April, triggering a process – expected to last several months – for licenses to be approved.

The approval of permit fees was the first step in a city effort to raise $6.3 million in revenues from marijuana businesses to pay for hiring additional city staff and police over the next three years to regulate the cannabis industry in Sacramento and drive out illegal cultivators operating in neighborhoods or other zones where the businesses are prohibited. The effort is expected to require 54 positions, including 32 new city hires at a cost of $5.4 million.

Alaska Pot Regulators to Again Consider Onsite Use

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — In an abrupt about-face, Alaska marijuana regulators on Tuesday decided to once again attempt to write rules that would allow the onsite consumption of pot in retail stores.

During a high-profile meeting just last month, the board cited fears over how the Trump administration might crack down on marijuana, even in the eight states where recreational use is legal, in letting proposed regulations wither that would have made Alaska the first state in the nation to allow onsite use.

Those fears weren’t mentioned Tuesday as the board voted 4-1 to attempt to come up with a new set of rules that would eventually be sent out for public comment.

The End of Big Home Grows in Colorado Draws Near

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Authorities in Colorado aren’t waiting to see what moves—if any—Donald Trump’s administration will make to pare back the state’s booming marijuana industry. For now, Colorado is cracking down on itself.

For years, law enforcement throughout the Great Plains region have blamed Colorado for an influx of cannabis and accompanying drug trade-related violence throughout neighboring states. This alleged havoc was one of the chief arguments used by attorneys general in Oklahoma and Nebraska in a (failed) lawsuit to try and convince federal authorities to intervene in the state’s legal cannabis trade.

Though the violence cited by Oklahoma AG Douglas Peterson—and later repeated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions—may not exist (which may explain why the Supreme Court refused to give his lawsuit a hearing), the weed certainly does.

Los Angeles Sheriff Thinks Feds May Target Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The leader of the nation’s largest sheriff’s department expects federal drug agents will attempt to step up marijuana enforcement as California moves forward with legalization. But he believes there isn’t the manpower to conduct widespread raids on growers and businesses selling marijuana.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell also decried California legislation that would make the state a sanctuary for immigrants in the country illegally by limiting how much local law enforcement agencies can work with federal immigration authorities. McDonnell said doesn’t want his deputies acting as de facto immigration agents, but he believes the bill goes too far and would hamper cooperation on counterterrorism and gang initiatives.

Drug Trafficker Says He Bribed Honduran President and Son

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

NEW YORK (AP) — A man who led a violent Honduran drug trafficking organization has told a federal court in New York that he bribed a president of the Central American country.

Devis Rivera Maradiaga, a onetime leader of a gang known as the Cachiros, made the allegation while testifying Monday in a pre-sentencing hearing for the son of now retired Honduran President Porfirio Lobo Sosa. The son has pleaded guilty to cocaine smuggling.

Rivera said he paid Lobo and the son to protect the gang’s operations and to secure government contracts to help launder money.

The former president denied the claims. “I never received money from those criminals,” Lobo told reporters from his home on the outskirts of the Honduran capital Tuesday.

Marijuana and Employment: What to do if Marijuana is Legal in your State

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana and Employment: In the last decade, the use of marijuana has changed dramatically across the country. What could at one point lead to jail time and judgement by your peers eventually proved itself to be useful for medical treatment, and in some states even approved for recreational use. Unfortunately, the use of marijuana can still have negative impacts on your life so it’s important to understand what rights you have at a state level, federal level, and with your place of employment.

The laws surrounding marijuana vary greatly depending on where you live. Close to 30 states have laws allowing use in some capacity, and 8 have passed laws to allow it for recreation. Where most people run into problems with these laws is when it comes to marijuana and employment. Many people have learned the hard way that even though your state is saying you can participate legally, your job may have a different view.
