MA: No City Council Support For Allston Marijuana Dispensary

//?#

Following the lead of Allston-Brighton’s district councilor, Mark Ciommo, the Boston City Council opted to not endorse a locally run company’s bid to open a medical marijuana dispensary in the Allston neighborhood.

The voice vote – which appeared to be unanimous – came Wednesday at the weekly City Council meeting, two days after Ciommo held a contentious public hearing with the local company, Compassionate Organics. Ciommo favors another medical marijuana group for Allston, an out-of-state company named Mayflower Medicinals.

At Wednesday’s council meeting, legislators did approve a letter of non-opposition for a different medical [...]

NY: The Cost Of Medical Marijuana – $1,000 Per Month

//?#

Churchville, N.Y. – A mother from Churchville is finally able to get medical marijuana for her daughter who has epilepsy. But the cost of the drug has put it nearly out of reach.

“The cost is astronomical,” Christine Emerson told 13 WHAM’s Jane Flasch.

Her daughter Julia turns 10 next week. Medical marijuana has helped to control seizures that otherwise would send her to the emergency room at least once a week.

Yet the Emersons have not been able to get the proper concentration from the dispensary in Rochester.

“They didn’t have what we needed. She would have been getting too much of the component that makes you [...]

MA: Could Legalizing Recreational Pot Help Medical Marijuana Patients?

//?#

Chicopee, Mass. – The state maintains a list of people who have registered for a medical marijuana card. Supporters of “Yes on 4” believe recreational pot will help medical marijuana patients who don’t want to get the card.

The “Yes on 4” campaign told 22News that many people, especially veterans and federal employees, don’t want their names on the list out of fear of losing their federal benefits or pensions.

Remember, marijuana is still illegal under federal law. On November 8th, voters will decide whether to fully legalize, regulate, and tax the sale of marijuana for recreational use in Massachusetts.

Ballot [...]

OK: Medical Marijuana Measure Must Clear More Hurdles Before Public Vote

//?#

Oklahoma City – Oklahomans will likely have a chance to vote on legalizing medical marijuana. A last minute push by supporters proved successful. They gathered just enough signatures to put the proposal on the ballot. The question now is when will we vote?

On Thursday, August 18, Attorney General Scott Pruitt sent a letter to the Secretary of State saying he will rewrite the ballot title. He has until August 29, and his spokesperson says they are working to expedite the process. But that’s just one of several legal hurdles the measure still has to clear before going on the ballot.

“I’m concerned it’s going to be delayed by the [...]

MD: Washington Co. Medical Marijuana Applicant Dropped In Ranking

//?#

Annapolis – Maryland’s medical marijuana commission on Wednesday released details on how top applicants to grow and process marijuana in the state were ranked.

The rankings named two growers that were bumped out of the top 15 and two that were moved up due to geographical considerations.

OH: Avon Lake Moving For Medical Marijuana Moratorium

//?#

With the term medical marijuana buzzing around, Avon Lake City Council’s safety committee moved along a moratorium to a collective committee meeting during its meeting Aug. 24.

“A number of communities are doing this to allow for the dust to settle,” said Safety Committee Chair David Kos, adding that they want to see how everything will land in place and how it will take effect.

Mayor Greg Zilka agreed with Kos that a lot of communities are taking action to give them some breathing room.

Council President Martin O’Donnell said they need to take a good look at the law, because it’s not all the way put together at the state [...]

SK: Regina Medical Marijuana User Welcomes New Laws

//?#

After growing his own marijuana for years, Ryan Murray says he can now do so without the fear of criminal prosecution.

“For me personally, it’s a big smile on my face.”said Murray. “Now I get to grow my medical cannabis again”.

Effective Wednesday, new federal rules allow people authorized to use medical marijuana to grow it, or have someone else grow it for them.

The amount will be limited, though. For example, someone prescribed a gram a day could grow two plants outdoors, or five plants indoors.

Health Canada says plants grown outdoors yield more supply than indoor plants.

Murray, 37, said years of snowboarding, [...]

http://www.thecannabist.co/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/state_borders_national_borderswp-560x347.jpg?# Published: Aug 25, 2016, 9:05 am • Updated: Aug 25, 2016, 9:05 am

Expanding a marijuana enterprise across state lines often involves forging new territory, says Scott Thorn, chief operating officer of The Clinic, which operates dispensaries in Colorado, Illinois and Nevada.

It’s often a matter of ensuring capital structures and business plans are aligned and can meet regulatory requirements that could vary from state to state and town to town, he says.

Thorn joins Strainz CEO Hugh Hempel on The Cannabist Show to [...]

Marijuana Legalization Hits Michigan Supreme Court

//?#

by Rick Thompson

LANSING- The Michigan Court of Claims yesterday dropped an Opinion in the MILegalize vs. Everybody lawsuit, and Everybody seemed to be the victor.

On to the next step- the Michigan Supreme Court.

In June MILegalize submitted 354,000 signatures on petition forms to state elections officials- 100,000 more than the law required to place the issue on the books. How do you ignore an extra 100,000 signatures? By refusing to count or verify them. That’s exactly what the Bureau of Elections and the Board of State Canvassers did, citing a law 30 years old that has never been used before.

That law requires individual county clerks to [...]
