Nevada approves opening up marijuana distribution rights
2 More Medical Marijuana Licenses Awarded in Florida
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s Department of Health has licensed two additional medical marijuana treatment centers.
Spokeswoman Mara Gambineri said Wednesday that Treadwell Nursey in Eustis and the Arcadia-based Sun Bulb Nurseries have received letters of approval. Plants of Ruskin and 3 Boys Farm, both in Ruskin, received their approvals last week.
The five new licenses in the first round are going to applicants from 2015 who scored within a point of the top applicant or those who have been in legal or administrative challenges.
Man Lights Up a Joint in Portland Courtroom, Disrupts Murder Trial
Thomas Paine, one of the Founding Fathers, said: “Common sense is a flower that doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden.”
It became apparent that one young man’s garden lacked that flower when he lit up a joint in a courtroom in Portland, Oregon during the hearing of a tragic shooting death of a 17-year-old boy.
The 30-something smoker apparently thought it was cool because, after all, weed is legal in Oregon, right?
Two deputies quickly disabused the man of that notion.
Courthouse deputy Chris Payne said he walked through a plume of smoke to the man who was toking in the third row of the crowded courtroom.
Is the Weed Industry Too Lucrative to Be Illegal?
CBS recently did a story about a California man who was selling off his huge retail store. The first offer to buy it came from someone who wants to turn the vast space in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains into an indoor weed farm.
The realtor, a conservative churchgoer, initially balked at the deal; the store-owner jumped at it.
“The realtor,” said the owner, “may be anti-drug, but he’s pro-money.”
Of course he is, and if he wants to make any, he’ll get with the program.
With weed being legal, in some form, in 29 states, prohibitionists are fighting an uphill battle when it comes to the economy and the free market.
Unless the prohibitionists lighten up, the feds and state governments will continue to miss out on billions in pot earnings.
State Gauging Interest in MMJ Lab Testing
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota health officials are gauging interest among laboratories in the state in testing medical marijuana once a system is established for making it legally available to patients.
The state Health Department is seeking non-binding letters of intent from laboratories by the close of business on Aug. 25.
North Dakota voters in November approved medical marijuana, and the Legislature this year crafted regulations that Gov. Doug Burgum approved in April. The North Dakota Compassionate Care Act allows the use of medical marijuana for 17 medical conditions, along with terminal illnesses.
Producers of the drug will be required by law to have it laboratory tested for contaminants including pesticides and molds and to ensure that levels of the intoxicant THC are accurately labeled. The medical marijuana centers will have to pay the testing costs.
