Nevada Is Estimated To Gain $400 Million In Recreational Marijuana Revenue from Tourism

Category: News | Posted on Wed, July, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA—After a successful trip to meet with marijuana industry leaders in Colorado this June, the Nevada Dispensary Association (NDA) feels confident that the lessons learned by officials in Colorado following the state’s legalization of recreational marijuana will be a great benefit to Nevada in the event that Question 2 passes this fall. The common sentiment within the group was that the trip provided eye opening facts to the Nevada delegation, most significantly regarding Nevada’s upcoming undertaking, which has the potential to ultimately yield great benefits to the state’s infrastructure, tourism, education and public health in the future.

While the NDA—along with Nevada elected officials Senator Patricia Farley, Assemblyman Derek Armstrong and Assemblyman Nelson Araujo—brought optimism as well as skepticism to their talks with Colorado officials, the usefulness of the talks with representatives of the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, Colorado Division of Revenue and others did much to answer the delegation’s pressing concerns. Foremost of the issues addressed were questions concerning how Colorado taxes marijuana and what the state does with that tax revenue; how the state approaches prevention of teen use; how Colorado handles the issue of DUI when it relates to marijuana use; what public health impact has been observed and how Colorado has sought to address those impacts; and, lastly, how Colorado has implemented state’s medical marijuana program after the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Santa Ana Cops Fired For Vile Actions During a 2015 Raid

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

The three police officers with the Santa Ana Police Department that made headlines last year after surveillance footage from a raid on a medical marijuana dispensary showed them eating pot edibles and making fun of a disabled woman have been cast out into the unemployment line.

Last Thursday, Corporal Anthony Bertanga, a spokesperson for the department, confirmed that Jorge Arroyo, Nicole Lynn Quijas and Brandon Matthew Sontag were no longer with the force. A report from the OC Registersuggests that it is not known if the officers were terminated or whether their departure was of their own volition, while an article from NBC 4 clearly states that the officers were fired.

American marijuana shops go under the knife, focus on retail design

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana shops across the U.S. are getting some work done — a nip here, a tuck there and sometimes an entire face-lift.

Call it “Extreme Makeover: Dispensary Edition.”

Pot shops, once sparsely decorated storefronts run by people more worried about DEA raids and federal seizures than LED display lights and high-end fixtures, are coming into their own. Owners are hiring big-name architects and trendy design firms. They’re rebranding, using mood boards and open-staff discussions on aesthetics. And they’re reinventing the way consumers shop for cannabis.

Missouri Governor Signs Bill That Allows for Expungement of Many Marijuana Convictions

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Jay Nixon, the Governor of Missouri, quietly became a marijuana hero this week by signing into law Senate Bill 558, all while looking like a dad who will never be proud of you. The law will allow the records of almost every marijuana-related conviction in the Missouri state and municipal courts to be expunged from public records.

The bill was not brought forth by any marijuana advocacy group, but rather, the Missouri Bar Association and Republican Senator Bob Dixon. Aiming to expand the list of offenses that qualify for expungement, the bill now allows hundred of non-violent, non-sexual crimes to be waived from public record. Defendants convicted of a felony offense are required to wait seven years after completion of their sentence or probation or parole, and those convicted of a misdemeanor must wait three years.

Evidence Shows How a $2 Roadside Drug Test is Sending Innocent People to Jail

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

The use and possession of drugs in the United States is problematic, but a bigger problem that people are facing is the $2 roadside drug test kits used by cops that can lead to false convictions.

In 1973, Richard Nixon established the DEA, declaring “an all-out global war on the drug menace,” which led to a pair of California inventors patenting a disposable comparison detector kit. After trying out these drug kits, police departments across the country ordered the field tests because of their simplicity and quick results.

And yes, the small and cheap drug tests seem straightforward—but they come with multiple inefficiencies.
