Montana prepares to collect taxes on medical marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — State revenue officials are working on the roll-out of the latest medical marijuana program with a tax on the drug — the first of its kind in the state — which could increase the agency’s capacity for handling cash.

Legislators passed SB333 this spring, adding a number of regulations to the program. That includes a gross sales tax that providers will start putting on the books on July 1, the Billings Gazette reported Sunday.

The tax will be 4 percent of gross sales from July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018. After that the tax will be 2 percent.

Police Issue Annoyed Press Release After Pot Arrest

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

HAMPSTEAD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire police department has issued a public service announcement with an odd mug shot after a man was arrested with marijuana in his car.

Hampstead police said in a release Monday, “as a public service announcement – it is illegal to possess recreational marijuana in New Hampshire, even if you only ‘smoke it in Massachusetts.'”

WMUR-TV reports the announcement came after the arrest of 27-year-old Selket Taylor, who was pulled over for using his cellphone while driving.

Police say they arrested Taylor after they saw he had a bag of marijuana in a cup holder.

Taylor has been charged with possession of a controlled drug, transporting a controlled drug in a motor vehicle and use of an electronic mobile device. In his arrest photo, Taylor is sticking out his tongue while his eyes are closed and arms are crossed.

The State of Marijuana in Texas After the 2017 Legislative Session

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

At the close of the 2017 legislative session, marijuana remains illegal to produce, possess, use or sell in Texas. While cities like Dallas have moved to implement cite-and-release policies, which allow police to send people holding marijuana home with a court summons, the state maintains its stiff penalties for drugs.

This year, however, legislators on both sides of the aisle made progress toward loosening and removing those restrictions. While Texas Gov. Greg Abbott won't have any bills coming across his desk in 2017 to reform the state's marijuana policies, there are signs that he or his successor might get an opportunity to do so in 2019. With an eye toward what's coming, let's take a look at how several marijuana bills performed this session.

Nevada’s Plan for Early Recreational Marijuana Sales Might Be Sabotaged

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Nevada’s concept of using its medical marijuana market to temporarily service the recreational sector is scheduled to launch sometime within the next month.

According to a report from the Las Vegas Sun, there are more than 140 applicants vying to become the first to sell weed in manner similar to beer.

The goal of the “early sales” initiative was to give adults 21 and older the freedom to walk into a state licensed dispensary and purchase up to an ounce of weed without flashing a medical marijuana card. Meanwhile, it would give state officials some breathing room while putting together the regulations for the full-scale market set to launch next year.

In the development phase, lawmakers pressed the importance of getting recreational pot sales up and running in enough time to beat the summertime tourism rush. After all, Las Vegas alone is predicted to see as many as 43 million visitors this year.

Sparks fly over marijuana legalization

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Politically influential opponents of Delaware's marijuana legalization bill voiced their concerns Thursday in a roundtable conversation with Gov. John Carney and the bill's sponsors.

A gaggle of cannabis legalization activists watched on and many offered opinions during a comment session, resulting in a lively and largely measured debate about the future of marijuana in Delaware. 

At question is House Bill 110, or the Delaware Marijuana Control Act, which would regulate the recreational use of less than one ounce of marijuana "in the same manner as alcohol."

Colorado’s Pot Windfall Taxes Figure into State’s Recently Approved Budget

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

As legal weed in Colorado continues to rake in millions, the state released its budget last Friday. Anti-pot governors and federal legislators should take a good look at the pot tax windfall and how it’s going to be spent.

The budget not only manages to avoid what Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper called “draconian cuts” to hospitals and schools, it actually boosts school funding, averts the expected hospital cuts and secures millions of dollars for a new state-led program to combat homelessness, per the Denver Post.

Colorado’s Marijuana Tax Cash Fund, more than $105 million for the 2016-17 fiscal year, will be spent on health programs in public schools, housing for at-risk populations and a new treatment program to deal with the opioid crisis, according to public state data.

The Department of Education will receive an additional $9.7 million in marijuana taxes to create a grant program to support up to 150 healthcare workers whose tasks will include visiting high schools where they will provide “education, universal screening, referral, and care coordination for students with substance abuse and other behavioral health needs” by increasing access to “more appropriate services outside the criminal justice system.”
