Several NFL owners, execs eyeing marijuana discipline changes

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

With public attitudes and laws changing in the United States regarding the use of recreational and medical marijuana, minds are beginning to change in the NFL as well.

Based on conversations with 10 NFL team owners and executives over the past few months, marijuana usage could emerge as a key issue when the collective bargaining agreement is renegotiated over the next few years. The team sources spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to talk candidly about the subject.

Each of the owners support additional study and discussion regarding what the league's stance should be on medical and recreational pot use for players. The majority of the sample size supports a "decriminalization" of marijuana that would make it more difficult for players to be suspended. Two of the principals involved in the issue said they are open to getting rid of marijuana-related suspensions and only issuing fines. Two others said they are worried about sending the message that drug use is tolerated and believe suspensions must remain.

When does Nevada's marijuana law go into effect? These are the key dates to know.

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana advocates in Nevada celebrated on Tuesday as the state officially approved recreational marijuana use with 54.5% of the vote. But residents can't take advantage of the new measure just yet.

The Nevada Marijuana Legalization Initiative — also known as Question 2 — will officially take effect on Jan. 1, 2017. On that date, it will become legal for adults 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana, as well as grow up to six marijuana plants per person (12 per household) in an enclosed space.

Denver Appears To Legalize Marijuana Social Lounges

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

Voters in Denver appear to have approved a pilot program legalizing marijuana lounges, though the vote tally remained uncomfortably close on Wednesday.

The City of Denver Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program, on the ballot as Initiated Ordinance 300, was leading by less than half a percentage point, 100,284 votes for to 96,893 votes against, according to results on Wednesday afternoon.

If this result holds and the measure passes, Denver will have finally solved the problem of where its recreational cannabis users are supposed to smoke—four years after marijuana was legalized for adults 21 and over.

Acclaimed Author Speaks on CBD in New York City

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

A little New York-California cross-fertilization of herbal consciousness took place as Martin Lee, the author of Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana, spoke in Manhattan’s East Village Thursday night about “The Future of CBD and Medicinal Cannabis.”

Lee discussed his current work with California-based Project CBD, dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical uses of cannabidiol, and Emerald Pharms, his CBD-oriented dispensary in southern Mendocino County. The event was hosted by the Alchemist’s Kitchen, a new age-flavored herbal apothecary—or “botanical dispensary”—on East 1st Street.

Mom-and-Pop Cultivation Loses in Mendocino

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

Small cannabis farmers in Mendocino County, in the heart of California’s marijuana-producing “Emerald Triangle,” lost big in their attempt to write mom-and-pop cultivation into the fabric of local law on Election Day.

Marijuana is one of the chief economic drivers in rural Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity counties—and, for small farmers, even rivals wine in some areas of Sonoma County. In some areas, it is the main source of economic activity.

Mendocino’s so-called “Heritage Initiative,” which would have legalized cannabis cultivation nearly everywhere in the county—including on former timber land—and removed a cap on the number of cultivation permits granted, lost by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. By early Wednesday, Measure AF was losing 64 percent against to 35 percent for, according to the latest county election results.
