Which Areas Of Oregon Allow Marijuana Sales And Which Don’t?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

Fifty-six percent of Oregon voters in 2014 decided that marijuana shall be legal statewide. That’s the greatest statewide support for legalization of the four states that have passed it. Every adult may possess an ounce of marijuana, grow four cannabis plants at home, possess a half-pound of marijuana at home, and shop in safe retail outlets.

The only problem? If you live east of the Cascade Mountains, there will be no safe retail outlets for you.

As the legislature worked on implementing the will of the majority, representatives of the people living in those eastern counties demanded a compromise. Allow the counties that really, really hate potheads to ban marijuana markets, or they’ll sue to destroy the entire state’s legal marijuana markets.

Measure 91 already contained within it some powerful local control options for those counties. Any county or city could ban marijuana producers, processors, wholesalers, and retailers. But those bans would have to go before the voters in that city or county at the next election. That’s what a majority of Oregon voters decided would be fair.

3 Bills Signed by Gov. Brown Create New Rules for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

Nearly two decades after Californians legalized marijuana for medical use and a year before they may also approve it for recreational purposes, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday approved statewide rules on the growth, transport and sale of the drug.

Signing a trio of bills, the governor created a regulatory system that could be adapted to widespread cannabis use if voters make it legal by passing a ballot initiative next year.

Marijuana advocates have proposed multiple measures for the ballot, and several groups are working to find one they believe will most appeal to voters.

Canadian Feds Threaten Medical Cannabis Crackdown

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

Vancouver's BC Compassion Club Society and 12 other area cannabis dispensaries are waiting for clarification from Canada's federal government following a threat to call in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)—unless they close their doors. 

John Conroy,  the Compassion Club's attorney, told local News 1130 that he wrote back to Health Canada after they received the threatening letter last month, asking them "to comply with the duty to act fairly that falls upon all administrators when they are going to take action that could adversely affect anyone." 

Vancouver recently became the first Canadian city to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries, which remain officially barred under federal law. The city now has about 80 such operations, with the Compassion Club noted for being the flagship outfit.

Conroy, of the Vancouver-based Cannabis Rights Coalition, fears a replay of the spate of RCMP raids that occurred after the Compassion Club first opened 20 years ago.

Oregon Sold $11 Million In Marijuana The First Week Of Legalized Recreational Sales

Oregon Cannabis Connection

After a full week of legal marijuana sales to adults in Oregon, the numbers have completely blown Washington and Colorado out of the water! Even being the first to legalize, Colorado’s first week of $5 million dollars in sales paled in comparison to Oregon’s $11 million. And…Oregon has HALF the population of Colorado!

According to the Oregon Retail Cannabis Association, the state’s dispensaries sold an estimated 11 million dollars in cannabis the first week, equaling a quarter of what the state expected to be sold in an entire year. The state estimated tax revenues of only $9 million dollars for the entire year of 2017, which amounts to about 40 million in total sales statewide. By October 7th, just one week in, Oregon sales show just how badly they underestimated the popularity of cannabis.

“We’re seeing about 500 people a day,” Nectar owner Jeff Johnson told KGW TV in Portland, showing the huge numbers of people waiting to buy recreationally.

“There for awhile, towards the end we were thinking we might have to close the doors because we weren’t getting any kind of steady business,” Rachel Clerk, an employee at Fresh Buds, also told KGW.

Amoeba Music Hoping to Add Marijuana Dispensary to Berkeley Store

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

The music industry has been on the decline for the past several years, mostly due to a lack of physical retail sales brought on by a technological swarm of platforms providing digital downloads, and in a lot of cases, access to pirated albums. However, there is some evidence that the cannabis industry could help revitalize the business of selling recorded tunes by doing what California-based Amoeba Music is planning to do—incorporate legal marijuana and music.

For the past year, Amoeba’s San Francisco location has successfully housed a medical marijuana evaluation clinic, which assists music fans in getting their hands on a state MMJ card, but a recent report from the East Bay Express indicates that the record seller’s flagship store in Berkeley is preparing to step it up a notch by opening a full-scale medical marijuana dispensary. 

While there are not as many people walking into record stores these days to pick up their favorite music, Amoeba’s addition of the evaluation clinic has helped  keep the Bay Area location from succumbing to the dirge trumpeted in by the digital age. Because of this, Amoeba co-owner David Prinz believes the obvious transition from providing pot recommendations to actually selling weed in the same location where CDs and records are sold is a foolproof concept with a wealth of potential.

"Music and weed go together like—music and weed,” Prinz said.

Michigan House Votes In Favor Of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries, Taxes, And Edibles

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

safer michigan marijuanaSome very important medical marijuana bills passed in the Michigan House of Representatives today. Those bills were HB 4209, HB 4210 and HB 4827. TWB posted an article earlier today viaThe Compassion Chronicles. In that article Rick Thompson had the following to say about the bills:

4209 will end all the existing dispensaries in the state and require them to get a new local and state authorization to reopen. It establishes a big government program to control growth/production/sale of marijuana to registered patients through commercial facilities. Commercial distribution of medical marijuana has been prevalent in Michigan since 2010 and is a pure market that is unregulated, robust and encompasses most of the state’s 175,000 registered patients.

Production of cannabis is already regulated through the state’s medical marijuana program. Michigan has approved approx. 30,000 licensed caregivers, who sell their extra cannabis to the dispensaries. Under the 4209 program, that all goes away. Not the caregivers, or the extra cannabis, just the safe and legal place for them to sell it. Where will people get rid of all their extra marijuana, when the dispensaries refuse to take it?

4210 re-legalizes the medical use of non-smoked forms of cannabis. It requires labels, packages, and containers for commercial production of foods, bans the use of butane extraction methods indoors, and contains penalties for failure to comply.
