This U.S. City May Become the New Amsterdam

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada already has legal brothels, round-the-clock casinos and a coy catchphrase declaring that “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” If voters approve, the state could soon add another vice in the form of recreational marijuana.

A proposal on the Nov. 8 state ballot would legalize pot, and entrepreneurs hope its passage could someday allow the drug at Las Vegas’ glamorous nightclubs and perhaps provide the framework for a future Amsterdam-style cannabis district.

Blacks 13 Times More Likely to Get Arrested for Weed in New York

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

New data obtained from public records requests by marijuana.com found large racial disparities in marijuana arrests, even as law enforcement priorities shift. The numbers echo previous findings that decriminalization (and even legalization) do little to combat racial disparities when enforcing cannabis laws. 

Out of the 25 states where data was collected, New York had the largest racial disparity. Black New Yorkers are 13 times more likely than whites to be arrested for possession.

“The bulk of arrests in New York State occur in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan boroughs that make up New York City,” reported marijuana.com.

Can North Dakota Get Medical Marijuana Over the Finish Line?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

A last-minute infusion of campaign cash from the Drug Policy Alliance is hoping to get a volunteer-led medical marijuana initiative in North Dakota over the finish line .

Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of DPA, said the fact that the measure made the ballot in North Dakota came as a surprise to national organizations. He said his organization sent infusions of cash last week to campaigns in Montana and Arkansas as well, which are also considering medical marijuana initiatives.

“They did the work and got the thing on the ballot, and I wanted to help them out a bit,” Nadelmann said.

Attorneys Argue Pot's Schedule I Listing Is a Civil Rights Violation

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

A federal judge in New York was recently put in the position to decide whether marijuana’s Schedule I classification under the Controlled Substances Act was a civil rights violation.

However, the defendant charged in the case ended up accepting a two-year prison term before the court ever had a chance to comment.

According to the Bradford Era, the public defenders appointed to drag 58-year-old Randy Wade Kenyon out of the mud after he was caught in possession of more than 800 cannabis plants, filed a motion with the court that asserted the DEA’s Schedule I listing for marijuana violated Kenyon’s civil rights.

Washington D.C. Council Votes to Allow Medical Marijuana Reciprocity

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

The D.C. Council has approved a measure that would allow medical marijuana users from other jurisdictions to use their out-of-state registration cards to buy medical cannabis in the District.

The bill, which received unanimous support from the D.C. Council on Tuesday, will make it easier for patients visiting the nation’s capital to get the medicine they need.

“Reciprocity can actually help reduce transfer of marijuana across state lines as patients are not forced to bring medical marijuana obtained in their home states with them when they travel,” said Kaitlyn Boecker, policy coordinator with the Drug Policy Alliance in Washington D.C.

A ban on the sale of marijuana passed in San Jose, California on Tuesday. The actions come as election-day voting on Proposition 64 approaches.

The city’s urgency ordinance “would prohibit commercial use of non-medical marijuana in the city, including commercial cultivating processing, manufacturing, distributing, testing and selling of recreational weed,” according to the Mercury News.

San Jose is only the latest in a run of California cities quickly passing restrictive marijuana laws. Bans are also in place in Berkeley, Palo Alto, Campbell, Foster City, Hayward, Davis, Martinez and more.
