Guam Governor Wants Territory to Legalize Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

In 2014 Guam voters legalized the medical use of cannabis. Now, Governor Eddie Calvo (R) believes the island territory should take things a step further and begin looking at the legalization of cannabis for personal use.

“We’re talking about cutting what would be red tape and concerns about funding for required enforcement on the new marijuana legislation that became law” Governor Calvo said in a Faceook post made yesterday. “I want us to look at how states navigated into recreational marijuana; let’s figure it out and then tax the heck out of it and use those taxes to help fund our hospital, public safety and education.”

The idea of taxing “the heck out of it” probably isn’t the most appealing approach for cannabis consumers, who aren’t going to like the idea of ridiculously high taxes that will artificially inflate the price of cannabis. However, it’s very likely that the large majority of cannabis enthusiasts are willing to pay a higher price for cannabis (or at least a price that isn’t less than it is now, as legalization would undeniably due without massive tax rates) in exchange for the removal of the possibility of them going to jail for using it.

Is marijuana legalization in California the beginning of the end of the war on weed?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

The door to legalized marijuana in California cracked ajar in 1996, when voters approved the Compassionate Use Act, which allowed doctors to recommend cannabis to their patients.

In November, the door flew open as voters approved Proposition 64 by a wide margin, a measure that legalizes marijuana for adult recreational use and could herald the beginning of the end of the federal government’s misbegotten war on weed.

California Mulls Ban on Marijuana Billboards

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Are you wandering around the endless highways in California, wondering where to pull off and escape the traffic in order to buy medical marijuana?

While that’s debatably better than staring down at your phone with one hand on the wheel, if some state lawmakers have their way, you soon won’t be able to look to billboards for any weed-related guidance.

As the Sacramento Bee reports, when California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 64 on Election Day, legalizing possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for all adults 21 and older, they also outlawed marijuana-themed billboards—but only in certain locations along the state border.

U.S. Women Increasingly Using Pot During Pregnancy, Study Finds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

CHICAGO (AP) — U.S. women are increasingly using marijuana during pregnancy, sometimes to treat morning sickness, new reports suggest. Though the actual numbers are small, the trend raises concerns because of evidence linking the drug with low birth weights and other problems.

In 2014, almost 4 percent of pregnant women said they’d recently used marijuana, up from 2.4 percent in 2002, according to an analysis of annual drug use surveys.

Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, said the results raise concerns and urged doctors and other health care providers to avoid recommending the drug for pregnant women. Volkow commented in an editorial published online Monday with the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Maine can (Finally!) Celebrate Their Legalization Victory!

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

As you may have read in our election coverage article about Maine and it’s legalization measure, it wasn’t one that we could call on election night.  In fact, the opposition for Question 1 just finally dropped their request for a recount just this past Saturday, December 16th.

The recount was 2 weeks into the process and they had counted about 1/5th of the total number of ballots so far.  The recount that had been conducted so far showed that the tally would not change significantly and the “yes” votes still seemed to have it.

According to the Press Herald:
