Nevada Senate Bill 344 would make Regulations for Marijuana Edibles the Strictest in the Nation

Nevada legalized marijuana last November, and the State is working hard to get their recreational/adult-use cannabis industry up and running before 2018 – with sales possible as soon as this summer if all goes well. Because of this, there are of marijuana-related bills are being introduced and working their way through Nevada’s legislature right now, including Nevada Senate Bill 344.

Policy and rules regarding marijuana infused edibles has always been a little slower to fully roll out than for other sectors of the industry.  This has been a trend in all the states that have legalized cannabis so far.  This appears to be the case in Nevada as well.

The Marijuana Times reported:

Florida Pot Monopoly Compared to a ‘Cartel’

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana in the state of Florida is a real-life game of Monopoly, but one where a few players already have all the properties in hand before the first die is thrown.

While other states where cannabis is legal allow for competition among those who produce and sell medical marijuana—a lucrative position to be in, we’re told time and again—Florida allows a mere seven companies to hold the exclusive rights to produce and sell all the cannabis in the state. That’s a corner of the market that will serve a population of 21 million people (many of them senior citizens, one of the very market segments the cannabis industry is expecting to expand dramatically)—and they’re in this position, holding all the railroads as well as all the key properties from Baltic to Boardwalk, thanks to state government.

The Miami New Times is bringing attention to this “de-facto monopoly”—which is also attracting international attention from ambitious would-be international cannabis conglomerates.

Former Mexican Cartel Head and El Chapo Associate Gets Life for Drug Smuggling

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) — A once-powerful Mexican drug cartel leader and associate of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been sentenced to life in a U.S. prison.

Alfredo Beltran Leyva, 46, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in February to charges his multibillion-dollar operation smuggled tons of cocaine and methamphetamine into the United States. Beltran Leyva led the organization from the 1990s to his indictment in 2014, as it shipped tons of cocaine from South America to the United States, prosecutors said.

Authorities called him a “Goliath” of drug trafficking. A judge ordered him to forfeit more than $529 million, based on what he described as a conservative estimate of the amount of cocaine Beltran Leyva brought into the United States.

Beltran Leyva led a “campaign of violence and fear that gripped communities across North America,” acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco said.

No sales, but marijuana ‘gifts’ exploit a legal limbo

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Jack Sargent sees a bright future in marijuana.

The retired grandfather of nine wants to grow his Biddeford-based business, The Cannabis Shack, to cater parties – think weddings and barbecues with marijuana-infused food – and open a storefront cannabis bakery. He’s already perfected his recipes, including an “award winning” Hell Sauce 420 hot sauce, brownies and infused salad dressings.

But at least until next year, when the state plans to issue retail licenses, Sargent isn’t allowed to sell any of it. While marijuana use is now legal for adults 21 and over, selling it remains a crime and obtaining it without breaking the law is difficult.

South Dakota Cannabis Backers See Hope in North Dakota Vote

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Medical marijuana supporters who came up empty at the South Dakota Legislature and ballot box are emboldened to try again after an overwhelming vote in North Dakota to make cannabis available to patients there.

Backers of the South Dakota effort hope to soon gather enough signatures to put the question on the November 2018 ballot after the strong showing last fall in North Dakota, where 64 percent of voters supported a similar plan.

“If North Dakota can pass it at that great of a margin, I’m absolutely positive South Dakota can also,” said Melissa Mentele, founder and director of the group advancing the measure. “It definitely looks good for us.”

New Approach South Dakota’s proposal would allow patients with serious medical conditions and a health practitioner’s recommendation to use marijuana. Qualifying patients – such as people with cancer, AIDS and hepatitis C – would be able to get a registration card to possess up to 3 ounces of the plant. The group also plans to pursue a recreational marijuana initiative.

First Country in the World Authorizes Pharmacies to Sell Pot Over the Counter

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

Uruguay was the first country in the world to completely legalize weed nearly four years ago under former President José Mujica, who was in many ways the law’s architect.

Now, Uruguay will become the first country in the world to legally sell cannabis over the counter in pharmacies.

Having legalized cultivation, distribution and consumption in 2013, this is the first authorization for pharmacies.

“Cannabis will be dispensed in pharmacies starting in the month of July,” president of the National Drug Board, Juan Andres Roballo, told a press conference Thursday.
