Philadelphia Mayor Says State Should Legalize Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The mayor of Philadelphia says Pennsylvania should legalize marijuana so police don’t have to expend resources on busts like the one in his city over the weekend.

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney says Saturday’s raid at a warehouse hosting a pot-smoking party might have been “overkill.” Police arrested 22 people and seized more than 50 pounds of marijuana. About 175 people were allowed to leave without charges.

The mayor says he understands why police busted the party, citing the large amount of marijuana present and potentially dangerous conditions in the building.

But he says marijuana legalization is “the real solution.”

In 2014, the city made possession of small amounts of the drug punishable only by a citation and a fine, but marijuana sales weren’t decriminalized.

Marijuana vs. Auto Dealerships: Car Salesmen Not Feeling Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

Cathedral City, California is one of a brace of forlorn, all-but-forgotten towns scattered across the wide expanse of desert stretching west from Los Angeles attempting to reinvent—or, rescue—themselves as marijuana boomtowns.

Nearly everywhere, marijuana is welcomed, or at least coolly embraced, as a badly needed raison d’etre, bringing businesses (and tax revenue) to places where the recession was only the latest in a series of reversals, and one that’s never quite turned back the other way.

In Desert Hot Springs, all the available real estate has been bought up by out-of-town investors, looking to cash in on the city-blessed right to run a million-square-foot marijuana operation (though where they’ll find all the water demanded by thousands and thousands of cannabis plants is an open question); in Coalinga, further up Interstate 5, even the local reactionaries are happy that an abandoned prison—once the local economic driver—has been leased by an outfit on whose board sits Bob Marley’s youngest son.

Marijuana on Religious Grounds? A Cannabis Church Opens in Denver

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

For the International Church of Cannabis in Denver, there were three reasons to celebrate on Thursday.

First, it was opening day. The church, a more than century-old building recently adorned with brightly colored paintings by the artists Kenny Scharf and Okuda San Miguel, welcomed the public early in the afternoon, at which time no cannabis consumption was allowed inside.

“It seemed to be a nice steady flow of people,” said Lee Molloy, a founder of the church and a member, who estimated that a couple of hundred people had come by.

Committee Advises California Judges Not to Invest in Pot

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California Supreme Court committee advised judges in the state Wednesday to stay away from pot – meaning investments in pot businesses.

Maintaining any interest in a business that involves medical or recreational marijuana is incompatible with a judge’s obligation to follow the law, the court’s Committee on Judicial Ethics Opinions said.

California voters have legalized the use of recreational and medical marijuana, but the drug remains illegal under federal law.

The committee said involvement in a pot business could also cast doubt on a judge’s ability to act impartially, particularly in marijuana-related cases.

This Landmark Cannabis Bill Is Great News for Marijuana Stocks

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Investors would probably struggle to find an industry that's growing at a faster and more consistent pace than legal marijuana.

Last year alone, according to cannabis research firm ArcView, North American legal pot sales jumped 34% to $6.9 billion. ArcView estimates that legal sales could top $22 billion by 2021, with investment firm Cowen & Co. expecting legal sales to hit $50 billion by 2026. Regardless of what estimate you choose to believe, the legal marijuana industry is growing by between 20% and 30% a year. That type of consistent long-term growth is certainly appealing to investors.

The sky could be the limit -- if not for these issues

Wall Street Predicts Pot Will Hurt Beer Sales

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

Despite the fact that marijuana remains illegal in the eyes of the United States government, analysts on Wall Street are predicting the cannabis industry could soon put a hefty dent in beer sales.

According to a report from CNBC, New York investment bank Cowen Group recently downgraded its market performance rating for Molson Coors Brewing Co (TAP), a major producer of mainstream beer brands like Coors Light, Fosters and Miller High Life, because it is convinced the company, whose net sales were close to $11 billion in 2016, will suffer some loss in the coming years because more people are interested in weed.

In a letter sent to their clients on Thursday morning, Cowen analyst Vivien Azer wrote: “We believe alcohol could be under pressure for the next decade, based on our data analysis covering 80 years of alcohol and 35 years of cannabis incidence in the US. Since 1980, we have seen 3 distinct substitution cycles between alcohol and cannabis; we are entering another cycle.”
