MA Committee Fears Marijuana Legalization, Recommends Strict Regulations

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Special Senate Committee On Marijuana released a reportanalyzing the potential “policy ramifications” of legalized marijuana for recreational use—a reform voters will decide on November’s ballot. While claiming that the committee had not taken “an official position” on the legalization initiative, the report boasts a dearth of reasons why marijuana legalization could be harmful to the state and is mute on the potential benefits of the policy change. 

The report cites “concerns” that marijuana legalization may increase youth access, stoned drivers would endanger residents and tax revenues would not offset spending on the social consequences of legalization. Other pressing issues were edible marijuana products marketed as appealing to children, the persistence of the black market post-legalization and suggested that high-THC marijuana may make the drug more “addictive” today than it was in the past.

Is it time for football to reconsider marijuana?

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

(CNN)The NFL and the NFL Players Association have a staunch policy prohibiting marijuana use, but some players are asking them to reconsider it, saying pot can be used for pain relief, and possibly as concussion prevention.

If you play professional football, "your job automatically gives you the symptom of chronic pain," said Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, who has played in the NFL since 2009. "You're hitting each other as hard as possible every single day in practice. Your body is in pain a lot of time."

More and more players are looking to marijuana for pain relief, he said, despite risking punishment from the NFL.

Pennsylvania Spends $2.5 Million Annually on Nonviolent Marijuana Offenders

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

The auditor general for Pennsylvania, Eugene DePasquale, is urging the state legislature to pass a bill legalizing medical marijuana due to fiscal concerns related to the imprisonment of nonviolent marijuana offenders.

According to the York Daily Record, Pennsylvania's Department of Corrections currently spends around $2.5 million annually to house 97 people imprisoned for nonviolent marijuana offenses, which equals about $25,700 per inmate. 

"Whether it's $2 or $2.5 million, it is a waste of money, in my opinion, to arrest people for this," DePasquale said in a plea to lawmakers to pass the state's pending medical marijuana legislation.

Marijuana Outsold Alcohol in Aspen During Two Months in 2015

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

There are only seven marijuana dispensaries in Aspen.

But they are presumably as busy as liquor stores in the community — and sometimes more so.

According to newly released City of Aspen statistics, alcohol sales exceeded marijuana sales in the community in 2015.

But during two months of the year — March and April — cannabis was king.

The numbers were shared by the Aspen Times, which points out that separate marijuana and alcohol sales stats for 2015 represent a first for the community.

Previously, officials feared that splitting the figures would reveal too much about the amount of money being collected by such a small number of dispensaries.

Support The ‘Homegrown Defense Fund’

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

grants pass marijuanaI know from first hand experience that some of the best cannabis growers on the entire planet live in Grants Pass. I spent a decent amount of time in GP, and it’s a beautiful place to live. However, there are some harsh rules being enforced there. A legal battle is being waged, and a legal fund has been setup. Please donate if you are able. Below are the details, via the effort’s GoFundMe page:

Judge Wolke ruled against us and for the city. We will appeal. Please donate and encourage my attorney, Andrew DeWeese, who was kind enough to take this case without a retainer. He has been paid what has been raised here and personally; I still owe $2000 before the appeal.

There is plenty of error in Judge Wolke’s ruling to appeal. He sent his ruling on a pdf, printed in gray, so I took the liberty of transcribing it onto my blog, with a link to the original document at the beginning for comparison. It was not easy to get it all exactly right. In the end, I went over it by partial sentences, reading it aloud and comparing it to the printed copy piece by piece, finding little errors and one big one. You can read it here:http://gardengrantspass.blogspot.com/2016/03/judge-wolkes-ruling-in-my-lawsuit.html
