Marijuana Dispensaries see Increased Sales During the Holidays, Just like Other Retailers

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Many consumers go into a buying frenzy around the holidays, and traditional retailers aren’t the only businesses that notice an uptick in sales during this time of year.  This is simply proof of why cannabis is better off in a regulated system since more people actually seek cannabis products out as gifts for people who they know it would be just right for.

Randa Shahin, owner/operator of Homegrown Apothecary in Portland, OR, said, “Business grows around the holidays…primarily with edibles and vape products because people need a discreet way to put up with their families. There is also an increase because of gift giving ideas.”

How a 1 Billion Marijuana Company is Preparing For Legal Weed In Canada

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

VICE News gets an exclusive look inside Canopy Growth Corp., the Canadian marijuana producer that calls itself the world’s largest legal weed company.

So far the company has only been allowed to sell to medical patients, but that will all change when prime minister Justin Trudeau makes good on his promise to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes in the Spring of 2017.

 

That’s especially good news for Canopy, which has been gearing up for the recreational market for years, even though the government hasn’t yet even unveiled its legalization plan. This year, its subsidiary Tweed announced a partnership with Snoop Dogg, and it became the first weed company to list on a major stock exchange. Since then, its stock price has rocketed upwards, and they’ve been evaluated at upwards of $1 billion, making them the first Canadian pot company to reach that mark.

Guam Governor Wants Territory to Legalize Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

In 2014 Guam voters legalized the medical use of cannabis. Now, Governor Eddie Calvo (R) believes the island territory should take things a step further and begin looking at the legalization of cannabis for personal use.

“We’re talking about cutting what would be red tape and concerns about funding for required enforcement on the new marijuana legislation that became law” Governor Calvo said in a Faceook post made yesterday. “I want us to look at how states navigated into recreational marijuana; let’s figure it out and then tax the heck out of it and use those taxes to help fund our hospital, public safety and education.”

The idea of taxing “the heck out of it” probably isn’t the most appealing approach for cannabis consumers, who aren’t going to like the idea of ridiculously high taxes that will artificially inflate the price of cannabis. However, it’s very likely that the large majority of cannabis enthusiasts are willing to pay a higher price for cannabis (or at least a price that isn’t less than it is now, as legalization would undeniably due without massive tax rates) in exchange for the removal of the possibility of them going to jail for using it.

Is marijuana legalization in California the beginning of the end of the war on weed?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

The door to legalized marijuana in California cracked ajar in 1996, when voters approved the Compassionate Use Act, which allowed doctors to recommend cannabis to their patients.

In November, the door flew open as voters approved Proposition 64 by a wide margin, a measure that legalizes marijuana for adult recreational use and could herald the beginning of the end of the federal government’s misbegotten war on weed.

California Mulls Ban on Marijuana Billboards

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Are you wandering around the endless highways in California, wondering where to pull off and escape the traffic in order to buy medical marijuana?

While that’s debatably better than staring down at your phone with one hand on the wheel, if some state lawmakers have their way, you soon won’t be able to look to billboards for any weed-related guidance.

As the Sacramento Bee reports, when California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 64 on Election Day, legalizing possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for all adults 21 and older, they also outlawed marijuana-themed billboards—but only in certain locations along the state border.
