Petition to Start New Marijuana Political Party

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

YORK, Neb. -- Several supporters for the legalization of medical marijuana are traveling across the state to unite people under a new political party.

"It obviously helps children with cerebral palsy with the epilepsy. It's something that is needed," said York supporter Josh Packard.

They stood along the streets of York Sunday afternoon, rallying drivers and passersby to sign their petition to start the Marijuana Party of Nebraska.

"I'm upset. I'm sick of waiting," said petition organizer Mark Elworth Jr. "At my point, I should do everything in my power to get to everybody to let them know that we're serious, and this is just an avenue that I think that's going to stick them right in the gut."

Elworth started the petition back in April when he knew the medical marijuana bill wouldn't be passed through the legislature. He needs 5,500 signatures to create his own party and currently has a little more than 3,000.

"Some people think, 'Oh, he just wants to legalize weed.' No, I'm trying to make our state better. I want young people to stay in our state. I want the money to stay here, and I want our patients to stay here. I want everybody to be healthy," said Elworth. "I don't want people on 10 pills. I want people on one plant, not 10 pills."

The U.S. Government’s Department of Health Finally Admits That Marijuana Kills Cancer

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Throughout history the main reasons human beings willfully kill other human beings are religion and greed. Although it is surprising that people steeped in a religion that worships a “loving god” revels in killing other humans, it is part of the “convert or kill” mindset that one the major Abrahamic religions, Christianity thrives and prospers on. It is not as surprising that human beings kill others out of greed, but for an industry that claims it exists to “save lives and heal infirmity,” it is astonishing that the pursuit of profit drives their pursuit of death and sickness. For the medical industrial complex, there is nothing as terrifying as a cure, or remedy, for a highly profitable and fatal disease like cancer.
 
It is little surprise that for a couple of decades at the direction of the multi-national pharmaceutical industry, and more recently the for-profit prison and law enforcement industry, the federal government and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have concealed a highly effective and completely natural remedy and relief for cancer. In just the past two weeks, the federal government and NIH have quietly confirmed that cannabis (marijuana) is very effective at killing cancer cells without harming healthy cells like radiation and chemotherapy. In fact, on the NIH website devoted to the hideous disease, Cancer.gov, they published the truth about marijuana and its effectiveness at combatting cancer in a stunning reversal of over four decades of deliberate fear-mongering and propaganda portraying the common weed as dangerous; all to satisfy the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, prison system, and law enforcement agencies at the local, state, and federal level.

Marijuana Taxes Swell, Not Up In Smoke After All

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

Not long ago, Colorado had a disappointing first year of tax collections from marijuana. When one projects one figure, perhaps anything less is a letdown, and the first state to legalize recreational marijuana projected a bonanza. The more skimpy actual numbers lead some to sound the alarm that marijuana taxes were going up in smoke. But now, officials say the Colorado marijuana tax revenues are up nearly 100 percent

 

The report that the pioneer pot state reaped $44 million in only the first five months of 2015 is a big relief. The same period last year netted the state only $25 million. The healthy uptick in the numbers will mean copious revenues going into public schools, plus many other dollars added to Colorado’s general fund. It seems apparent that this comparative gravy train will fuel other states in assessing taxes on the burgeoning business the crop has become.

 

Colorado is one of four states that have legalized recreational marijuana despite the continuing federal classification of cannabis as a controlled substance. Many more states have legalized medical marijuana, and with a growing number of states looking to add recreational marijuana, there is no question that taxes play a large part. Colorado has its own tax oddities.

Russia Will Block Wikipedia If It Doesn’t Take Action On Marijuana Page

russia marijuana internet censorship

When it comes to censorship, Russia sounds like a rough place. Last week they were threatening to block Reddit if it didn’t proactively block /r/trees to Russian IP addresses, a very popular Reddit subgroup. At first Reddit sounded like it would play hardball, but then eventually gave into Russia’s demands. This week news articles have surfaced about Russia threatening to block Wikipedia if it didn’t proactively block a cannabis related entry to Russian IP addresses. Per The Independent:

The Russian government has threatened to ban Wikipedia over a page explainingcharas, a hashish type of cannabis.

Roskomnadzor, the Kremlin’s internet watchdog, has reportedly written to Wikipedia’s administrators saying it will be ban the website in its entirety unless the entry – which basically provides a recipe – is removed.

According to Meduza, which calls itself ‘the real Russia Today’, Roskomnadzor has issued a statement: “In the event that Wikipedia refuses to comply with the court’s ruling, [we] will block the webpage on Russia territory using the registry of illegal information.”

According to the article, Russia has even banned memes. As an American that exercises my First Amendment rights everyday, I’m appalled at what the Russian government is doing. Especially since a lot of their focus seems to be shutting down cannabis pages. Cannabis is harmless. Government censorship is not.

Unlicensed Marijuana Stores Grow Like Weeds in LA

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

LOS ANGELES -- Graffiti-tagged buildings, barricaded doors and iron-barred windows mark nearly every block of Avalon Boulevard as it cuts through the predominantly Hispanic neighborhood of Wilmington, 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.

The streets are lined with small mom-and-pop shops - clothing stores, a piñata shop, garages and small, family-owned restaurants - and a clutch of illegal medical marijuana dispensaries, some located within feet of each other.

Other nearby dispensaries are shuttered with signs announcing 'closed,' 'for lease' and 'for rent' - the result of the city's most recent attempts to close the door on L.A.'s robust illegal medical marijuana industry. But when one dispensary closes, it usually opens somewhere else, police say.

Passed by California voters nearly two decades ago, but absent statewide regulation, the legalization of medical marijuana has spawned a vast network of illegal dispensaries and wide disparities over how businesses are monitored across the state- if they are at all.
