Lt. Gov. Newsom Wants Californians to Support Marijuana Initiative, But Will It Lose the Stoner Vote?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

While the fight to drag California out of the clutches of prohibition has been ugly and borderline slanderous, a recent editorial by Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom suggests the “Adult Use of Marijuana Act” (AUMA) is the smartest approach to ending the travesty of the drug war in the Golden State.

In a seeming attempt to lure in that percentage of California voters still on the fence about launching a recreational marijuana market, Newsom said that the current law has allowed too many people to be locked up for drug offenses, while the resources spent on treatment and prevention have been next to none.

“Given the high cost and ineffectiveness of the status quo, you don’t have to be ‘pro-marijuana’ to be ‘anti-prohibition,’” he wrote for the Modesto Bee.

Marijuana Could Have a Surprising Economic Impact, New Report Shows

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Yesterday we witnessed the release of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a highly anticipated movie depicting an unstoppable force and the proverbial immovable object. But what many people might overlook is that we've been witnessing a real-life battle for years beyond the confines of the movie theater between a seemingly unstoppable force known as marijuana, and the federal government which has maintained its position as the immovable object.

The real-life unstoppable force and immovable object
Marijuana has grown by veritable leaps and bounds since it was first approved by Proposition 215 in California all the way back in 1996. Today we can count 23 states as having legalized the drug for medical purposes. Additionally, since 2012 four states (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska) have legalized the sale of recreational marijuana. The result, at least for some recreation-legal states, has been explosive growth.

Cross-Border Tunnel Extends Length of 4 Football Fields

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- U.S. authorities on Wednesday seized a cross-border tunnel that ran the length of four football fields from a restaurant in Mexicali, Mexico, to a newly built house in Calexico, California, following an investigation that netted more than a ton of marijuana and resulted in four arrests.

The tunnel was the 12th completed secret passage that U.S. authorities have discovered along California's border with Mexico since 2006. They have found more than 75 along the entire U.S.-Mexico border in the last five years, mostly in California and Arizona and many of them incomplete.

Drug traffickers allegedly purchased the Calexico property in April for $240,000 and finished building a three-bedroom house on the parcel for $86,000 by December. Prosecutors say the first tunnel shipment occurred Feb. 28, leading to the seizure of 1,350 pounds of marijuana in West Covina, near Los Angeles.

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

new survey released today by the the Associated Press and the University of Chicago finds that a record-high percentage of Americans -- 61 percent -- say they support marijuana legalization.

Los Angeles Considering Using Marijuana Taxes to Help Homeless

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Los Angeles may have devised an unusual idea to curb the homelessness rates in the Skid Rows of old Hollywood. City officials are reportedly mulling over a plan in a series of budget talks that would utilize a portion of the tax revenue generated from the local medical marijuana industry to build more affordable housing units for local residents.

Earlier last month, the local government approved an impressive $2 billion budget plan intended get the homeless population off the streets through the implementation of a new housing project. However, according to KPCC, the challenge for administrators has been in determining exactly how the city is going to finance such an extensive construction campaign.

Minnesota marijuana company battles Google

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

A Minnesota-based medical marijuana company says Google is blocking its attempts to advertise online.

Vireo, the parent company of Minnesota Medical Solutions, tried to take out a series of online ads in New York, where it operates four clinics and is one of several companies chosen by that state to grow and manufacture medical cannabis. Each time, Google rejected the ads, citing its policy against promoting “dangerous products or services.”

On Monday, the company expanded its online advertising efforts to include the two Minnesota clinics operated by Minnesota Medical Solutions. Enrollment in Minnesota’s medical cannabis program remains relatively low — 1,133 patients since legalization last July. But Vireo announced that it would also attempt to place “Minnesota-targeted Google ads to make it easier for Minnesota patients to learn about using our medicines.”
