Pennsylvania Spends $2.5 Million Annually on Nonviolent Marijuana Offenders

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

The auditor general for Pennsylvania, Eugene DePasquale, is urging the state legislature to pass a bill legalizing medical marijuana due to fiscal concerns related to the imprisonment of nonviolent marijuana offenders.

According to the York Daily Record, Pennsylvania's Department of Corrections currently spends around $2.5 million annually to house 97 people imprisoned for nonviolent marijuana offenses, which equals about $25,700 per inmate. 

"Whether it's $2 or $2.5 million, it is a waste of money, in my opinion, to arrest people for this," DePasquale said in a plea to lawmakers to pass the state's pending medical marijuana legislation.

Marijuana Outsold Alcohol in Aspen During Two Months in 2015

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

There are only seven marijuana dispensaries in Aspen.

But they are presumably as busy as liquor stores in the community — and sometimes more so.

According to newly released City of Aspen statistics, alcohol sales exceeded marijuana sales in the community in 2015.

But during two months of the year — March and April — cannabis was king.

The numbers were shared by the Aspen Times, which points out that separate marijuana and alcohol sales stats for 2015 represent a first for the community.

Previously, officials feared that splitting the figures would reveal too much about the amount of money being collected by such a small number of dispensaries.

Support The ‘Homegrown Defense Fund’

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

grants pass marijuanaI know from first hand experience that some of the best cannabis growers on the entire planet live in Grants Pass. I spent a decent amount of time in GP, and it’s a beautiful place to live. However, there are some harsh rules being enforced there. A legal battle is being waged, and a legal fund has been setup. Please donate if you are able. Below are the details, via the effort’s GoFundMe page:

Judge Wolke ruled against us and for the city. We will appeal. Please donate and encourage my attorney, Andrew DeWeese, who was kind enough to take this case without a retainer. He has been paid what has been raised here and personally; I still owe $2000 before the appeal.

There is plenty of error in Judge Wolke’s ruling to appeal. He sent his ruling on a pdf, printed in gray, so I took the liberty of transcribing it onto my blog, with a link to the original document at the beginning for comparison. It was not easy to get it all exactly right. In the end, I went over it by partial sentences, reading it aloud and comparing it to the printed copy piece by piece, finding little errors and one big one. You can read it here:http://gardengrantspass.blogspot.com/2016/03/judge-wolkes-ruling-in-my-lawsuit.html

Florida House Passes Medical Marijuana Bill, United for Care’s Amendment 2 Still the Patients’ Choice

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite the inability of the state to roll out a low-THC medical marijuana program for cancer and seizure patients in a timely fashion, not to mention the distinct possibility that voters will pass an initiative this November that will bring about a comprehensive medicinal cannabis program for a variety of conditions, Florida lawmakers are still wasting their time trying to expand the state’s non-existent “Charlotte’s Web” law to the terminally ill. 

The Florida House of Representatives voted last week 99 to 16 in favor of a measure that would allow those who have been given less than a year to live the “right” to use full-strength marijuana. The measure (House Bill 307), which is being lopped in with the newly passed “Right to Try Act,” seems to be a clever, but remedial attempt at paving the way for the cultivation and distribution of marijuana that has the capacity to get patients stoned.

This Study Highlights Marijuana's Best Chance of Approval

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana appears set for a critical year. We've already witnessed nearly two-dozen states approve marijuana for medicinal use since 1996 (the year in which California became the first state to legalize the use of cannabis for certain ailments), and residents in four states have voted to legalize recreational marijuana since 2012. Now, come November, we could see around a dozen more state-level marijuana initiatives and referendums on ballots.

Grassroots campaigns in California and Florida are working tirelessly to get marijuana initiatives on the ballot and in front of voters. In Ohio, organizers are trying to regroup after a disappointing defeat this past November, which seems mostly to have been a negative reaction to the oligopolistic grow farms that would have been created by the language of the proposal rather than opposition to marijuana itself. In Vermont, lawmakers are considering passing a recreational marijuana law in the state's legislature rather than even putting it in front of voters. Long story short, marijuana could see a very rapid expansion following the November elections.

Oregon Cannabusiness is Donating Proceeds to Bernie Sanders Campaign

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Anyone who is hoping for cannabis legalization and is keeping up with the presidential race so far knows that Bernie Sanders is our best shot at having marijuana rescheduled and laws reformed. So with that knowledge it shouldn’t be too surprising that there is quite a bit of support for Sanders in the states which have legalized or are currently trying to.

“The time is long overdue for us to take marijuana off the federal government’s list of outlawed drugs,” he said. “In my view, states should have the right to regulate marijuana the same way that state and local laws now govern sales of alcohol and tobacco.” – Bernie Sanders
