New laws could force marijuana dispensaries to close

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Off licences, fast food restaurants and abandoned buildings line Gratiot Street in north-east Detroit where the cannabis dispensary 420 Dank stands.

The store is not owner Kim Gaetano's first foray into the medical marijuana business. The mother of two ran legal marijuana shops in Colorado and Washington before moving to Detroit to be closer to family.

Her shop sells cannabis flowers as well as edible products and has a 24-hour drive-through for patients who find it difficult to get out of their cars, especially in the harsh Michigan winter.

Vermont Marijuana Legalization Bill Poised For Full Senate Vote

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

vermont marijuana decriminalizationThe Vermont Senate Committee on Appropriations approved a bill (4-3) on Monday that would end marijuana prohibition in the state and regulate marijuana for adult use. It is now expected to receive a full Senate vote.

“The Senate has worked diligently and deliberately on this legislation,” said Matt Simon, the Montpelier-based New England political director for the Marijuana Policy Project. “Most Vermonters believe it’s time to end prohibition and regulate marijuana, and it appears most of their state senators agree. We are hopeful that the Senate will approve this commonsense legislation and send it over to the House for its consideration.”

  1. 241 would make it legal for adults 21 years of age and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and establish a tightly controlled system of licensed marijuana cultivation sites, testing facilities, and retail stores. It would also create a study commission to examine issues such as edible marijuana products and home cultivation, which would not be allowed under the bill. It would remain illegal to consume marijuana in public or drive under the influence of marijuana. If approved, rulemaking would begin this summer, but the new law would not take effect until January 2018.

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Nearly a fourth of Oregon's medical marijuana dispensaries selling the drug recreationally are not registered to pay taxes on those sales.

Dispensaries have until Feb. 29 to pay a 25 percent sales tax on January recreational marijuana sales.

As of Thursday, 245 out of 320 dispensaries selling recreational pot had set up accounts with the state Department of Revenue, according to reports from the Register-Guard.

Oregon Department of Revenue spokeswoman Joy Krawczyk says the department expects an upswing in registrations as the deadline nears.

Monona considers change to marijuana laws

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

MONONA (WKOW) -- The city of Monona's Public Safety commission will meet on Wednesday to discuss whether to ease up penalties for marijuana possession in certain situations.

Right now, someone caught with 25 grams or less of marijuana in a public or private place-- like a home-- can face a fine of up to $313. Officials in Monona are now considering a proposal to eliminate fines for adults who have small amounts of marijuana at home and only issue a $1 fine if caught with marijuana in public. 

Alderman Brian Holmquist says the meeting is just the preliminary discussion on the proposal. 

"Really this is a look at our current ordinance," Holmquist says. "Look at if there are changes that we look to do or keep it the same as it is."

Colorado Seeks To Create Organic Marijuana Labeling Rules

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

growing marijuanaI always say that the average marijuana consumer becomes more and more sophisticated every day. There will always be marijuana consumers that live in the ‘dark ages’ but with more and more states creating regulated marijuana industries, marijuana consumers are increasingly making their purchases at regulated outlets. Most marijuana consumers that I know that make their purchases at regulated outlets say that they do so because they like knowing what they are buying, something that isn’t always the case with the black market.

More and more consumers that I know are demanding all organic cannabis, and that’s a trend that I expect to continue moving forward. But what does that mean? What makes one harvest ‘organic’ and one not? That’s something that Colorado lawmakers debated started Friday. Per ABC:

Colorado starts work Friday on becoming the first state to regulate organic labels in its pot industry, with other legal weed states watching to see whether they too should step in to help consumers wondering what’s on their weed. Organic standards are regulated federally, and pot remains illegal at the federal level, meaning there’s nothing stopping commercial pot growers from calling their wares organic.

Iowa State Executives Appeal Free Speech-Marijuana Logo Case

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State University administrators are appealing a federal judge's ruling that they violated the free speech rights of student members of a pro-marijuana group by barring them from using the university logos on T-shirts.

Attorneys for ISU President Steven Leath, Senior Vice President Warren Madden and two other administrators notified the court Wednesday of their appeal to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

U.S. District Judge James Gritzner had issued an order on Jan. 22 granting members of the ISU chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws a permanent injunction blocking university administrators from using a trademark policy to prevent the group from printing shirts depicting the school mascot and a marijuana leaf.
