Should There Be Marijuana Lounges In States That Legalized Marijuana?

Without doubt, it is important that we begin to move forward with the legalization of lounges and social clubs that permit marijuana smokers to gather and enjoy their favorite strains. Marijuana smoking is a social activity, and most smokers would like the option of dropping by a local marijuana-friendly venue, to relax with friends and like-minded colleagues.

Currently, none of the four states that have fully legalized marijuana allow for this option. Smoking in a public venue is prohibited, and the authorities have taken a needlessly restrictive view of what is a public place, refusing, for example, to permit someone to lease a private venue and operate a private, members-only club where marijuana could be enjoyed. There is no public-policy or public-health basis for being so restrictive

As we move forward, it is important that we not permit ourselves to get shoe-horned into some system that suggests we are second-class citizens, simply because we enjoy smoking marijuana, and that would effectively keep us in the closet. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the responsible use of marijuana by adults, and there is no reason why we should not be permitted to enjoy marijuana in a lounge or social club with friends.

Smokers’ clubs have in fact surfaced in all of the legalization states, where those in the know can meet and share good weed, but they are forced to operate on the fringes, as part of a “gray market,” and several have already been closed by the authorities. I had the opportunity to visit a “smoke-easy” in Denver when I was in town for the 4/20 Cannabis Cup, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, but was saddened to learn the club had been raided and closed the following day. Gray market clubs are clearly not the long-term answer to this problem.

Marijuana-growing spikes Denver electric demand, challenges clean-power plan

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

GOLDEN — Surging electricity consumption by Colorado's booming marijuana industry is sabotaging Denver's push to use less energy — just as the White House perfects a Clean Power Plan to cut carbon pollution.

Citywide electricity use has been rising at the rate of 1.2 percent a year, and 45 percent of that increase comes from marijuana-growing facilities, Denver officials said Wednesday.

Denver has a goal of capping energy use at 2012 levels. Electricity is a big part of that.

The latest Xcel Energy data show cannabis grow facilities statewide, the bulk of which are in Denver, used as much as 200 million kilowatt hours of electricity in 2014, utility officials said. City officials said 354 grow facilities in Denver used about 121 million kwh in 2013, up from 86 million kwh at 351 facilities in 2012.

"Of course we want to grow economically. But as we do that, we'd like to save energy," city sustainability strategist Sonrisa Lucero said.

She and other Denver officials joined 30 business energy services and efficiency leaders seeking U.S. Department of Energy guidance Wednesday at a forum in Golden. Energy Undersecretary Franklin Orr said feds will promote best practices and provide technical help through an Office of Technology Transitions.

Farmer Offers 10 Acres of Pot for Malia Obama's Hand in Marriage

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, July, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

A Jamaican farmer has offered President Obama 10 acres of marijuana for Malia Obama to become his daughter-in-law. 

According to Kenya Today, Roy Chambers of St. James Jamaica believes that Malia and his 17-year-old son would be the "perfect couple," and to prove it, he is willing to give up his "most valuable possession"—his marijuana farm. 

"I tried to approach President Obama with my offer while he was in Jamaica a few months ago but the security prevented me," Chambers told the Jamaican website 18 Karat Reggae Gold. "I have sent him a regular mail to the white house and also an email so I hope he will reply soon."

Believe it or not, this is not the first marriage offer that the president has received for his teenage daughter. 

A Kenyan lawyer recently offered Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats for Malia's hand in marriage—an offer dismissed as "a sign of bad luck and bankruptcy" by a second Kenyan suitor, Jeff ole Kishau.
