Forget Sessions: Meet The Real Marijuana Enemy in Donald Trump’s Cabinet

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

America’s marijuana industry has enjoyed several years of unprecedented growth. Our current multibillion-dollar boom times could last well into the 2020s, cannabis sector experts and observers predict.

But economics follow cycles of boom-and-bust. There’s a crash coming at some point. The major question for the cannabis sector now is whether the anti-marijuana zealots soon to be in charge of the federal government will be its architects.

Most of the speculation has centered on Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump’s choice for attorney general, whose nomination advanced past a committee of Senate Republicans this week (who had to briefly suspend their own rules in order to do it, a phenomenon that’s not at all a frightening slippery slope).

If Sessions wanted to, he could use the Justice Department to disrupt recreational marijuana legalization and wreck certain state’s economies in the process.

Where Does Trump’s Choice for the Supreme Court Stand on Weed Legalization?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Does Neil Gorsuch believe that states’ rights and medical marijuana laws should be respected and protected? Good question and there aren’t a lot of answers just yet.

But, then, after not even two weeks into the Trump administration, we are witnessing history’s most chaotic authoritarian rule via a narcissist’s Twitter account and a radical right wing presidential puppeteer, Stephen Bannon, who just moved into the West Wing and on to the National Security Council.

Onward to the Supreme Court.

Despite Neil Gorsuch’s tenure on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, he has made precious few public pronouncements about marijuana policy.

Philippines: Duterte Blinks in Deadly Drug War?

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

The Philippines’ ultra-hardline President Rodrigo Duterte may have finally gone too far. It is all too telling that after his anti-drug crackdown claimed perhaps 7,000 lives since he took power last June, it is the death of a prominent foreign businessman that has finally prompted him to—perhaps—rein in his murderous police.

All those suspected low-level drug users and dealers who were killed? Their lives don’t matter, apparently. But after rogue National Police officers abducted and put to death a South Korean shipping company executive, Duterte has finally pledged to disband the controversial anti-drug units.

The Republicans Sick of Marijuana Prohibition And The Lawmakers Who Listen

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana is bipartisan. We know this: In every session circle, there’s at least one person with a Ron Paul button stashed in a junk drawer or a Gary Johnson vote in his or her past (now hidden for all time, tucked away under the weight of a Trump presidency). 

But marijuana’s relationship with mainstream Republicans is complicated at best. 

Sure, you had presidential candidate Rand Paul stay true to the GOP’s small-government values and espouse marijuana legalization—and now we have Jeff Sessions and his avowed support for mandatory minimums and enforcing drug laws preparing to take over the Justice Department. 

But all politics is local, as they say, and local Republicans can apparently read the polls.

Maine Alcohol Bureau to Have Marijuana Oversight

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Latest on the first day of legalized marijuana in Maine (all times local):

3:10 p.m.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage says he’s using an executive order to shift oversight of licensing and enforcement relating to legal marijuana.

LePage sparred with state lawmakers about who should have authority over marijuana sales in Maine. He gave the authority to the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations on Monday.

The order is an outgrowth of a row LePage had with lawmakers last week about his desire to move oversight from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations.

Vote Hemp: 2016 States Report Documenting Legislative Progress

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON, DC – Vote Hemp, the nation’s leading grassroots hemp advocacy organization working to change state and federal laws to allow commercial hemp farming, has released its 2016 States Report. The report documents state-by-state progress of hemp legislation passed in 2016, reported acreage of hemp grown, identifies states with active hemp pilot farming programs and advocacy work the organization has lead over the past year. To view the complete Vote Hemp 2016 States Report, please visit: http://www.votehemp.com/state/PDF/VH-State-Support-Report-2016.pdf.

“We’ve seen enormous progress this past year toward returning this historic crop to American farmlands, with 15 states that grew hemp and 30 colleges & universities that participated in hemp pilot program research in 2016,” said Eric Steenstra, President of Vote Hemp. “U.S. consumers constitute the largest market for hemp products in the world–the demand is here for full scale hemp farming across the country. But growing the crop remains restricted at the federal level, due to outdated and misguided drug policy. We need Congress to take action this year to legalize this crop, so that American farmers can take advantage of the enormous economic opportunity industrial hemp presents.”
