Arkansas Medical Marijuana Industry Group Forms

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Former Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and the chairman of Arkansas’ medical board are overseeing a new industry group representing people and corporations doing business under the new amendment legalizing medical marijuana.

McDaniel and Medical Board Chairman Dr. Steven Cathey are among the seven board members for the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Association announced on Wednesday. The association says in a news release it would be the “leading voice” for cultivators, distributors and businesses serving the medical marijuana industry.

Voters in November approved legalizing medical marijuana for patients with certain medical conditions, and the state is accepting applications for cultivators and dispensaries until Sept. 18.

Nevada approves opening up marijuana distribution rights

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

CARSON CITY — The Department of Taxation decided Thursday that there are an inadequate number of liquor distributors interested in transporting marijuana to Nevada’s retail establishments, opening up the business to others.

The decision came after a telephone conference hearing bringing the industry, agency officials and the public up to date on whether the alcohol industry alone is sufficient to distribute pot to points of sale around the state.

Deonne Contine, executive director of the tax department, said her goal has been to make the program work, not to include or exclude anyone.

Spokeswoman Mara Gambineri said Wednesday that Treadwell Nursey in Eustis and the Arcadia-based Sun Bulb Nurseries have received letters of approval. Plants of Ruskin and 3 Boys Farm, both in Ruskin, received their approvals last week.

The five new licenses in the first round are going to applicants from 2015 who scored within a point of the top applicant or those who have been in legal or administrative challenges.

Man Lights Up a Joint in Portland Courtroom, Disrupts Murder Trial

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Thomas Paine, one of the Founding Fathers, said: “Common sense is a flower that doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden.”

It became apparent that one young man’s garden lacked that flower when he lit up a joint in a courtroom in Portland, Oregon during the hearing of a tragic shooting death of a 17-year-old boy.

The 30-something smoker apparently thought it was cool because, after all, weed is legal in Oregon, right?

Two deputies quickly disabused the man of that notion.

Courthouse deputy Chris Payne said he walked through a plume of smoke to the man who was toking in the third row of the crowded courtroom.

Is the Weed Industry Too Lucrative to Be Illegal?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

CBS recently did a story about a California man who was selling off his huge retail store. The first offer to buy it came from someone who wants to turn the vast space in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains into an indoor weed farm.

The realtor, a conservative churchgoer, initially balked at the deal; the store-owner jumped at it.

“The realtor,” said the owner, “may be anti-drug, but he’s pro-money.”

Of course he is, and if he wants to make any, he’ll get with the program.

With weed being legal, in some form, in 29 states, prohibitionists are fighting an uphill battle when it comes to the economy and the free market.

Unless the prohibitionists lighten up, the feds and state governments will continue to miss out on billions in pot earnings.

State Gauging Interest in MMJ Lab Testing

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota health officials are gauging interest among laboratories in the state in testing medical marijuana once a system is established for making it legally available to patients.

The state Health Department is seeking non-binding letters of intent from laboratories by the close of business on Aug. 25.

North Dakota voters in November approved medical marijuana, and the Legislature this year crafted regulations that Gov. Doug Burgum approved in April. The North Dakota Compassionate Care Act allows the use of medical marijuana for 17 medical conditions, along with terminal illnesses.

Producers of the drug will be required by law to have it laboratory tested for contaminants including pesticides and molds and to ensure that levels of the intoxicant THC are accurately labeled. The medical marijuana centers will have to pay the testing costs.
