Sixty Percent Of Likely California Voters Support Marijuana Legalization

vote for california marijuana initiativesBy Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director

A majority of likely California voters say that they intend to vote ‘yes’ this November for an initiative to regulate the retail production and sale of marijuana by adults, according to the results of a Probolsky Research poll released today.

Sixty percent of respondents say that they will vote in favor of an initiative this November “that would legalize marijuana for recreational use under California law and allow government to tax” its retail sales. Thirty-seven percent said that they would vote ‘no.’

Support was strongest among those between the ages of 18 to 34 (80 percent) and self-identified Democrats (69 percent). Republicans (38 percent) and those over the age of 65 (46 percent) were least likely to express support.

The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), which is expected to appear on the November ballot, permits adults to legally grow (up to six plants) and possess personal use quantities of cannabis (up to one ounce of flower and/or up to eight grams of concentrate) while also licensing commercial cannabis production and retail sales. The measure prohibits localities from taking actions to infringe upon adults’ ability to possession and cultivate cannabis for non-commercial purposes. Both the California Medical Association and the state chapter of the NAACPhave endorsed the measure.

Montana Supreme Court Restricts Medical Marijuana Laws

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Montana’s medical marijuana community took a big hit today after a ruling from the Montana Supreme Court limited cannabis providers in the state to no more than three patients each. One of the most significant medical marijuana rollbacks attempted in the U.S. this decade, the decision will have untold negative consequences for the thousands of patients who rely on medical cannabis for maladies ranging from Crohn’s disease to seizure disorders.

Citing the period from 2008-2010, when the number of medical marijuana users in Montana rose from about 1,000 to more than 25,000 patients, the state’s ban seeks to severely limit commercial growth of the industry. The Supreme Court ruling – intended to curtail abuses perceived by the state as leading to a flourishing marijuana industry – says that it will restrict medical marijuana providers from receiving “any compensation for medical marijuana products or services.”

On D.C.’s one-year anniversary with legalized marijuana, work remains

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

More than a year has passed since District voters legalized marijuana. On Feb. 26, 2015, it became legal for adults to possess up to two ounces of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants in their home. As a result, marijuana possession arrests decreased a whopping 98 percent from 2014 to 2015, dropping from 1,840 to just 32. In addition to the massive drop in marijuana possession arrests, it is worth noting that cumulative arrests for all marijuana offenses, including sales, also dropped 85 percent in that time.

This anniversary marks an enormous step forward not only for marijuana reform but also for criminal and racial justice in the District. Marijuana enforcement in the District has historically been racially biased; as recently as 2013 African Americans in the District were eight times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people, comprising a shocking 91 percent of possession arrests, even though rates of marijuana use and sales are comparable across racial lines and African Americans comprise roughly half the District population.

A look at whether mailing marijuana is legal or not

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Spoiler alert: It’s not.

According to federal laws, shipping marijuana is a crime.

Although recreational pot sales are legal in states like Oregon, that doesn’t mean mailing weed is. Mailing pot is still a crime even if the shipment is from a state where recreational marijuana is currently legal.

State law versus federal law:

Antonio Gomez, of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in Chicago, discussed the difference between federal and state laws on the matter.

New laws could force marijuana dispensaries to close

Category: News | Posted on Tue, February, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Off licences, fast food restaurants and abandoned buildings line Gratiot Street in north-east Detroit where the cannabis dispensary 420 Dank stands.

The store is not owner Kim Gaetano's first foray into the medical marijuana business. The mother of two ran legal marijuana shops in Colorado and Washington before moving to Detroit to be closer to family.

Her shop sells cannabis flowers as well as edible products and has a 24-hour drive-through for patients who find it difficult to get out of their cars, especially in the harsh Michigan winter.
