Landmark Cannabis Case in Costa Rica Could Lead to Decriminalization

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Costa Rica took a step towards becoming the next Latin American country to decriminalize cannabis this week, when attorney Mario Alberto Cerdas Salazar was cleared of cultivation charges on grounds of individual liberties.

Cerdas Salazar was arrested at his home in the city of Alajuela in August, after publicly advocating for a personal right to use and cultivate cannabis for medicinal and gastronomic purposes. He was charged with "drug trafficking," and has been held since.

The Judicial Investigation Organism (OIJ—Costa Rica's answer to the FBI) said they found enough cannabis on the premises to make 5,000 cigarettes. The quantity was also ambiguously put at 170 "plants and leaves of plants." But the OIJ admitted they had no evidence the cannabis was intended for commercial purposes.

Alaska: 2016 Is Going To Be Big For Marijuana Policy And Industry

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

alaska marijuana legalizationThe state legislature returned to session today with marijuana-related bills waiting for lawmakers. This year’s session happens at a critical time: The Marijuana Control Board will begin accepting applications for businesses in just over a month, local communities around the state are considering their own regulations, and businesses will begin operations later this year.

Activists, supporters, and prospective businesses should pay close attention as lawmakers and local officials continue to look at ways to regulate the emerging market.

On the legislative front, two bills introduced last year, SB 30 and HB 75, continue to be under consideration. Lawmakers have until February 22 to introduce new bills as well. While it is possible the legislature will hold off considering significant changes until the program is fully up and running, that is not yet clear, and we need to be ready to defend Measure 2.

In local communities, cities are considering their own regulations in the wake of the Marijuana Control Board’s adoption of regulations. Some have banned or limited businesses and others may do so. Fairbanks will ask the legislature to prohibit cannabis social clubs rather than implement their own ordinance. Anchorage is considering a ban on cannabis cafés and will seek to place a proposed local tax before voters.

Legal marijuana home delivery could come to Seattle

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

SEATTLE — 

A Washington state House bill would create a pilot program for a legal marijuana home-delivery service in Seattle.  

Here's how it would work: 

The pilot program would allow five existing licensed recreational marijuana stores in Seattle to offer delivery services to Washington state residents over the age of 21, according to Mayor Ed Murray's office. The pilot program would also provide a framework for delivery requirements, employee training and enforcement. 
The bill's first reading was January 12. 

Here's the reason behind it, according to the mayor's office:   

Despite current law, various online operations have been offering illegal delivery services, undercutting Washington State’s voter-approved legal marijuana market.

14-day notice shocks medical marijuana dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

The CPC in Georgetown has served thousands of patients since 2010. It works with hospitals, specializing in hard-to-find treatments for chronic disease, cancer, seizures and PTSD.

"We were always going to do this stuff anyways," founder Jeremy Kaufman said while pointing to new security cameras.

Kaufman is making a lot of changes to his building, adding new security cameras, constructing new walls, removing doorways, and clearing out his basement filled with cannabis plants. It's all part of applying for a new marijuana retail license, required by legislation that's combining medical and recreational pot under one regulatory system.

Harvest time is serious business at Las Vegas medical marijuana grow warehouse

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Leave the black lights and Jim Morrison posters in the attic. The methodically cultivated marijuana grown at Nevada Organic Remedies is not your father's weed.

With a one-of-a-kind watering system, production extraction machine and multiple strains of the plant grown under very specific conditions, the 12 employees and CEO Andrew Jolley harvest up to 50 pounds of "flower" every five days in the Las Vegas grow warehouse — a process that soared to new heights Saturday, when the company's first matured plants were ripe for the taking.

"We're constantly improving methods and techniques to get a better, more purer, more desirable product at the end of the day. This is a commercial agriculture facility. It's not a warehouse; it's not some dude's basement grow," Jolley said.

"Today's our first harvest."

Poll: Majority Of Americans Support Legalizing Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

legalize cannabisBy Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director

A majority of Americans, including two-thirds of Democrats, believe that marijuana should be legal for adults, according to nationwide survey data compiled by YouGov.com.

Fifty-two percent of respondents said, “[T]he use of marijuana should be legalized.” Only 34 percent of respondents opposed the idea.

Support for legalization was strongest among self-identified Democrats (66 percent), those with a household income of $100,000 or more (62 percent), and African Americans (59 percent). Support was weakest among Hispanics (39 percent), those over 65 years of age (39 percent), and self-identified Republicans (36 percent).

Sixty-six percent of respondents agreed, “[G]overnment efforts to enforce marijuana laws cost more than they are worth,” while 62 percent said that the government should no longer enforce federal law in states that have legalized and regulated the plant’s use.

Fifty-three percent of those surveyed, including 68 percent of respondents between the ages of 45 and 64, acknowledged having tried cannabis.

The YouGov.com poll is the latest in a series of national surveys showing majority support among Americans for regulating the adult use of cannabis.
