Marijuana Decriminalization Rally In Athens, Georgia December 1st

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

athens georgia marijuana decriminalization rallyFor the past year students and citizens of University of Georgia and Athens-Clarke County have been attending commission meetings in a effort to enact some form of marijuana decriminalization for possession of personal amounts (less than 28 grams).

Thanks to the work of our affiliate (Athens C.A.R.E. Project) support is building with the commission. The mayor has expressed interest in this issue but seems reluctant to move forward. The city attorney claims a decriminalization ordinance is not feasible. We contend it is allowable and seek to enact such legislation.

With your help we can accomplish our goals.

On December 1, 2015 we will continue our push for reform but hosting a rally outside Athens city hall and speaking before the commission.

James Bell, Director of Georgia C.A.R.E. Project will be presenting a draft ordinance to allow for a written citation for possession of of 28 grams or less. The goal is to reduce the harm cause by prohibition. A local ordinance will take the case out of state court and eliminate a criminal arrest/record, booking, bond and photographs.

The Rally: A public rally will take place on December 1st – 5:00 pm to 7:00pm on the side walk at city hall. Everyone is invited to bring signs and express your support for this effort. It is important we have a good turn out.

Latest Studies Confirm Medical Marijuana Is Safe Long-Term

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

The latest Canadian study has confirmed that medical marijuana is a safe option – at least for those that are using it to treat chronic pain. It is, thus far, the largest study to be conducted in regards to the safety of using medical marijuana long term.

Effectively, they found that there are not really any serious adverse effects from using medical marijuana over a long period –  Canadian research gives medical marijuana a thumbs up!

“The largest study of the long-term safety of medical cannabis”

The team at Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) in Montréal, Canada, have been doing research on the long-term safety of medical marijuana. They collected together a group of 215 people with whose chronic pain they were going to treat with marijuana to use as their test group. They had a group of 216 as a control group, whose non-cancer pain was not being treated with marijuana.

Cancer Patient's Lawyer Says She Can Get Marijuana in Maine

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The lawyer for a New Hampshire woman with late-stage lung cancer says she could get medical marijuana in Maine if New Hampshire health officials issue her an identification card saying she's eligible.

Linda Horan of Alstead wants a judge to order the state to issue her a medical marijuana ID card before dispensaries open in New Hampshire next year. Lawyers for the state argue that would undermine New Hampshire's need to control distribution at its alternative treatment centers.

Horan said after a hearing last week that she may be dead before in-state dispensaries open.

Her lawyer filed affidavits Thursday from Maine dispensary operators saying Horan could get marijuana there with a New Hampshire ID card.

Lawyers for the state didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Uruguay Authorities Discover 'Gray Market' for Pot

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Authorities in Uruguay say the country's legal pot-growing clubs may be selling marijuana and cannabis products without approval, creating a kind of "gray market."

The pot-growing clubs are allowed to have 45 members who can collectively cultivate up to 99 plants for personal use, but they cannot sell the marijuana.

Uruguay became the first nation to approve marijuana legalization and regulation in 2013.

The law also allows Uruguayan adults to buy up to 40 grams of marijuana from pharmacies once a month. But there have been delays in implementing the pioneering plan.

National Drug Board chief Milton Roman said Thursday that the so-called "gray market" is not good for the marijuana legalization program and legal pot-growing clubs are being warned that violations of the law won't be tolerated.

Alaska Marijuana Control Board votes to allow marijuana bars in retail outlets

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

The Marijuana Control Board voted to allow consumption of marijuana at retail stores, which, if approved by Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott, would make Alaska the first state to permit a regulated area for marijuana consumption outside of a person’s home or other private spaces.

The change allows for people to buy marijuana at a retail store and consume it in a designated area on the premises. 

The board voted 3-2 in favor of the amendment, with Loren Jones, public health board member, and Peter Mlynarik, the public safety board member, dissenting.

The regulations will go to the Department of Law for a formal review before heading to Mallott's desk.

Colorado Governor Gets Involved in State’s Pot Pesticide Problem

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

When Denver’s environmental health unit warned the state’s booming marijuana businesses that it intended to enforce federal, state, and local laws governing the use of pesticides and agricultural chemicals, pesticide enforcement in Denver quickly followed. But the state continued to act like the problem did not exist.

As time passed, pesticide residue violations led to marijuana product recalls and plant quarantines.

State officials dithered over how to deal with pesticides, since the Environmental Protection Agencywould not rule on them because pot is still classified as a Schedule I drug—hence, federally illegal. 

Enter Colorado’s Governor John Hickenlooper, who recently signed an executive order that finally accepts some responsibility for pesticide enforcement, according to Food Safety News.
