Why Is Facebook Taking Down Marijuana Dispensary Pages?

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, February, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana is legal in some capacity in 23 states and the District of Columbia, but Facebook doesn't seem to "like" it very much these days.

Over the past two weeks, the social media giant has reportedly been shutting down the Facebook pages of state-legal cannabis businesses across the country. While the total number of marijuana business pages that have been disabled is unclear, NBC News has confirmed at least a dozen businesses in six states that have experienced shutdowns.

From medical marijuana dispensaries in New Jersey, Arizona and Nevada to recreational shops in Oregon, Colorado and Washington state, Facebook is going after legitimate cannabis businesses for what it claims are violations of the social network's "Community Standards."

Sitcom About Weed Planned By Big Bang Theory Creator

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, January, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Deadline is reporting that Chuck Lorre, the sitcom genius behind “Mike and Molly”, “Mom” and “The Big Bang Theory”, is planning a new sitcom about weed. More specifically, the plot will revolve around a cannabis dispensary in Colorado and the employees and customers who spend their time there.

This seems like the perfect time to make a show based around legal cannabis. Stigma regarding the drug is slowly and surely being diminished. With more states legalizing the medical use, and the charges for criminal possession being lessened, we’re entering a time where weed is no longer a deviant.

The Stoner Sloth campaign, financed by the New South Wales state government, aims to stop teens smoking marijuana.

The sloth character is shown as unable to cope with various social scenariosafter smoking the drug.

In Uruguay, the Only Country with Legal Cannabis, Price is Less than $1 a Gram

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, December, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

With Canada currently examining ways to legally regulate the distribution of recreational cannabis, we thought it was a good idea to take an updated look at the only country in the world that has legalized the sale of cannabis; Uruguay (other countries may turn a blind eye to cannabis sales, but Uruguay is the only one where it has been statutorily legalized).

In Uruguay, it’s entirely legal for those 18 and older to cultivate up to 6 cannabis plants at any given time, with an allowed annual harvest of roughly 500 grams. Adults can also join cannabis clubs, where cannabis can be shared and consumed, and can purchase cannabis from designated cannabis pharmacies. Although the United Nations has warned Uruguay about moving forward with this new law, they’ve done so anyway.

 

Within the country, cannabis is being sold entirely tax-free to help undercut the black market. This brings the average price per gram down to just 22 Uruguayan pesos, or roughly $1. Although this results in less revenue earned by the country, it prevents situations where the black market simply lowers their prices to compete with the typically higher price of legal cannabis.
