Students To Rally Outside United Nations Meeting On Global Drug War

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

students for sensible drug policyAbout 200 students and youth allies will demonstrate outside of a high-level United Nations meeting on the global war on drugs in New York this Monday. They are distressed that youth and other anti-prohibition voices have been ignored by world leaders, many of whom seem set on continuing the same criminalization-based approaches that have failed for decades.

The activists will stage performance art pieces, including slam poetry readings. Visual art depicting the harms of drug prohibition, from as far away as Afghanistan and Eastern Europe, will be displayed, and students will give short soapbox speeches to make their voices heard.

The United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs is the highest-level gathering on the topic in nearly two decades. There, heads of state and diplomats will have the opportunity to discuss revising international drug control treaties that threaten to stand in the way of humane, evidence-based drug law reforms like marijuana legalization and access to harm reduction services as a growing number of U.S. states and other countries move toward ending prohibition.

Orlando considers decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

ORLANDO — Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer earlier this week discussed a possible new civil citation process for misdemeanor violations that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana.

Dyer, along with Orlando Police Chief John Mina and Organize Now, talked about the issue at a news conference at City Hall.

The process, which also will be discussed at a City Council meeting Monday afternoon, would decriminalize possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, allowing officers to issue citations, rather than make arrests.

Dozens Arrested in Denver-Area Pot Raids Targeting Exporters

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

DENVER (AP) -- Police and federal agents arrested more than 40 people and seized piles of pot plants and elaborate growing equipment Thursday during raids of homes and warehouses throughout the Denver area, part of a multi-state investigation into the illegal distribution of marijuana outside Colorado.

Authorities described the case as the latest example of drug traffickers seeking safe haven in the state's flourishing marijuana industry in order to ship the drug out of state, where it can sell for more than double what it would in Colorado. Several raids in recent weeks have taken aim at out-of-state drug rings, including a sweep last month that focused on unlicensed pot grows of varying sizes.

The government spent $18 million destroying marijuana plants last year

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

The Drug Enforcement Administration's controversial cannabis eradication program continued apace in 2015, new numbers released by the administration show. In 2015, local, state and federal authorities uprooted roughly 4.1 million cultivated marijuana plants in all 50 states, down slightly from the haul of 4.3 million plants in 2014.

Federal spending on the program remained at $18 million dollars, consistent with levels seen in previous years. That works out to a cost-per-plant of $4.42, up slightly from a cost of $4.20 per plant in 2014 (yes, really).

Massachusetts Poll: 57 Percent Support For Legalizing Marijuana For Adults

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

Massachusetts has been in the news a lot lately for marijuana policy. There is a campaign working very hard in Massachusetts to legalize recreational marijuana for adults. Opponents have been very vocal, especially lately, in their opposition to the campaign. If Massachusetts legalized in 2016, it would become a hotbed for cannabis because of where it is geographically located. A poll was released yesterday which found very strong support for such a public policy change. Per MassLive:

Massachusetts voters today strongly support a 2016 ballot question to legalize recreational marijuana, according to a poll released Thursday by the Western New England University Polling Institute.

On the marijuana question, the poll found that 57 percent of respondents favor legalizing recreational marijuana for adults, with just 35 percent opposed and 7 percent undecided.

Democratic and independent voters support legalizing marijuana by large margins, while Republicans oppose it. More men than woman support legalization, and the strongest support for legalization comes from young voters. Among voters age 18 to 39, 74 percent back legalizing marijuana. Geographically, support for marijuana legalization was strongest in Western Massachusetts and Greater Boston, which are also regions that are heavily Democratic.

Marijuana company wants naming rights to Denver Broncos stadium

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

The Denver Broncos could be looking for a new sponsor name for its home stadium in the future.

One potential sponsor is Native Roots, a marijuana dispensary company.

The current name of the Broncos' stadium is Sports Authority Field at Mile High. However, Sports Authority has filed for bankruptcy and may not be able to afford the $6 million annual payment to the Broncos.

Native Roots is one of Colorado's largest marijuana dispensaries, having expanded from one company to 14 outlets during the past year. A co-founder of the company said it is fully ready to make a multi-million dollar commitment if the contract between Sports Authority Field at Mile High and Sports Authority ends.
