Hawaii Mulls Raising Taxes on Fledgling MMJ Program

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Lawmakers in Hawaii are considering raising taxes on medical marijuana to help cover some the of costs associated with setting up the state’s MMJ program, but many are worried that a tax hike will hurt the very people who can least afford it: the patients.

State Rep. Della Au Belatti, chair of the House Health Committee, supports a so-called “Use Tax” on MMJ, on top of the existing general tax.

“We need to have that conversation, because we know that there are associated costs with setting up the medical marijuana program,”Belatti told Hawaiinewsnow. “There is a delicate balance that we’re trying to strike.”

The amount of the proposed tax increase is still unknown.

Marijuana Industry Projected to Create Nearly 300,000 Jobs by 2020

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

As we gingerly move into an unpredictable and so far unpleasant reality that some are calling Trumpism, we are trying to ascertain what the new administration, under the likes of virulently anti-pot Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, will mean for the cannabis industry. Admittedly, we are a bit nervous.

However, with a majority of states now enjoying legal weed in some form, we try to be optimistic in the hope that the federal government will respect states’ rights.

This begs an obvious question: How could the current administration not see the benefits of legal marijuana, one of the fastest growing industries in the country that is creating what everybody wants—jobs, jobs and more jobs?

A recent report from New Frontier Data projects that by 2020, the legal cannabis market will create more than a quarter of a million jobs. Yes, that many.

Washington Moving to Re-Legalize Medical Marijuana Seeds and Plants

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

For several years, Washington medical marijuana patients have been in a conundrum.

Aside from the state-licensed commercial grow houses supplying retail dispensaries, they are the only people in the state allowed to cultivate cannabis, and the only people allowed to grow their own marijuana supply at home. (Washington’s recreational legalization law does not allow home grow.)

They have this privilege—but mostly in theory—as they have to break the law to exercise it. 

Since the state’s medical marijuana dispensaries closed a few years ago (all dispensaries in Washington are retail dispensaries), there’s no legal way for medical cannabis patients to buy marijuana seeds or clones

How Alaska Gun Nuts May Save Legal Marijuana in California (And Beyond)

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

In the last month of 2012, much of America was in the grips of a mass psychosis. 

A disturbed, mentally ill young man who had access to military-grade weaponry and a cache of ammunition used his arsenal to murder his mother and then a roomful of 5- and 6-year old schoolchildren, their teacher and their principal. 

Rather than question the state of affairs that could have led to such a thing or take action to prevent a redux, immediate reactions to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School included denial—like insisting the tragedy of inconceivable scale was a conspiracy to take away Americans’ 300 million firearmsfollowed by a flurry of NRA-funded lawmaking to ensure such a conspiracy could never come true (and simultaneously preserving both “gun rights” and the likelihood that similar gun massacres could continue unimpeded, as they have in the ensuing four years).

LA Prop M Puts Minorities First and Provide a Foundation for Cannabis Businesses

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

LA Prop M puts minorities first and is a new measure being considered in Los Angeles, California that aims to regulate, tax and enforce medical and recreational marijuana – order that’s much needed to bring order in the quasi-legal Los Angeles dispensaries.

The choice turns to the voters with Proposition M on March 7. Voting ‘yes’ on M would give the City Council more authority and control over the sales of legal cannabis.

L.A cannabis is complicated – there are more than one-hundred medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the ‘grey area’ due to a 2013 measure called Prop D, that gave “limited legal immunity” to those operating without a proper license.
