California: Smoking Marijuana in a Car Soon to Be Punishable with a Fine

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

In a turn that will surprise probably no one, California has prepared for its impending marijuana Armageddon (AKA state-wide legalization) on January 1 by passing a new law banning smoking or eating weed while as a car driver or passenger. That means hold the lighters and the edibles until you make it to the destination, as this is already the rule of the land: Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill into law on Monday.

The bill—proposed by Sen. Jerry Hill—is a slap on the wrist more than anything, only costing a little more than an eighth ($70, and we know some of you get your eighths much cheaper—no one likes a bragger).

But also note that it is already illegal to drive while high AND to have an open bag of marijuana in the car, so this law is more about preventing people from the physical act of smoking weed in the car. As the basis for the law, Hill cites a 2012 California Office of Traffic Safety study that concluded marijuana was more prevalent in weekend nighttime drivers than alcohol.

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

High-level staff at outdoor recreational outfitter REI have internally discussed entering the marijuana industry, but amid ongoing uncertainty on the federal level, the company is not seriously considering such a move.

 

"We've talked about this at REI, because it makes a lot of sense," Elizabeth Dowd, REI's divisional vice president for retail experience, said on Saturday at a trade show in California.

Maine Town to Mull Retail Marijuana Ban

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

JEFFERSON, Maine (AP) — A central Maine town plans to vote to prohibit marijuana retail stores and pot social clubs.

The town of Jefferson is set to hold a public hearing Sept. 25 to discuss the ordinance. The vote is set for the Nov. 7 election.

Maine voters last year approved legalizing the possession, sale and use of recreational marijuana by persons over 21 years of age. Possession of up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana became legal earlier this year but lawmakers pushed back legalization of marijuana sales.

A legislative panel is figuring out a regulatory framework for recreational marijuana sales and licensing.

Another Cannabis Company Sued Over Intellectual Property Infringement

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Buds R Us dispensary in Detroit got a letter from Toys “R” Us alerting them to the fact that the toy company is not happy that their names are so similar. In fact, they’re so unhappy that they’re resorting to the traditional corporate modus operandi: threatening to sue for intellectual property infringement.

The owner, whose name is Frankie, thought it was a joke when he received an official letter from the Blank Rome law firm, with his dispensary logo Geoffrey the Giraffe, a beloved Toys “R” Us icon, smoking a fat joint right on the document.

“I thought it was a joke to tell you the truth, like really Toys R Us coming at us, we’re just a small business out here,” said Frankie. “We just thought it would be funny to have a giraffe with a joint smoking.”

This is not the first time a corporation has gone after a cannabis company for similar branding infringement.

Hawaii says its 1st state to go cashless for marijuana sales

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

HONOLULU — Hawaii said Tuesday that it will be the first state to require marijuana sales to be handled without cash, saying it wanted to avoid robberies and other crimes targeting dispensaries.

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii won’t be allowed to accept cash beginning Oct. 1 and will require people to use a debit payment app instead. The app is already an option for marijuana transactions in six states, including California and Colorado.

Many marijuana businesses use cash because banks fear pot money could expose them to legal trouble from the U.S. government, which regulates banking and still bans marijuana.

California Says No Marijuana Deliveries Via Drones

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

There was a lot of hope that California’s fully legal marijuana industry would give way to new tech services, allowing packages of marijuana to be delivered to the doorsteps of the stoner community by way of autonomous vehicles, but new regulations created last week by the state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control puts the kibosh on this novel concept—prohibiting toker transport via drones, self-driving cars or other vehicles not directly operated by a human.

Once the state’s recreational marijuana trade finally gets off the ground sometime next year, a move predicted to spawn a $5 billion boon to the state’s economy, the market will have to settle for conventional delivery services, while other industries, from pizza to prescription drugs, still get to relish in the possibilities of using unmanned technology.

“Transportation may not be done by aircraft, watercraft, rail, drones, human-powered vehicles, or unmanned vehicles,” the emergency regulations read, reports “alpha geek” publication Ars Technica.
