How To Get Your Legal Weed Permits in California
It’s officially time to start looking into legal weed permits in California! The state is about to fully legalize recreational cannabis. If you want to break into the industry, it’s time to prepare.
The Steps For Licensing
The new year is a time for new beginnings.
In California, January 1, 2018, will mark the day when the Golden State starts the task of issuing legal weed permits in California. For those in the state who hope join the Green Rush and get in on the action, this date is everything.
If you’re planning on starting your own weed business, here’s a simplified, yet comprehensive, guide on how to start.
Here’s How New Jersey Can Legalize Marijuana
New Jersey can legalize marijuana with their pick for governor next month. Democrat Phil Murphy is running against Republican Kim Guadagno to be Chris Christie’s successor. The former is in favor of legalizing cannabis, while the latter is completely against legalization. Their last debate was intense with all of the name-calling and interruptions we’ve come to expect after the last presidential election.
New Jersey can either see change or get more of the same close-minded approaches to legalized cannabis.
Phil Murphy for Governor and Legalized Weed
New Jersey can legalize marijuana sooner than later by voting for Phil Murphy to be its governor.
Greek Official Calls for Marijuana Legalization
On Greek TV, a Greek official calls for marijuana legalization for recreational purposes. The official in question is Yiannis Tsironis. He’s the Deputy Minister for Agriculture, originating from Greece’s Green Party. Yeah, we figured as much.
THE GREEN IN GREECE
Like many other countries, our own included, Greek federal policy outlaws cannabis.
Despite the country’s history of producing hashish, authorities officially criminalized the plant in 1890. Although the cultivation and possession of hashish were illegal, Greek citizens continued to use it. Particularly after the first World War. Greek soldiers, as well as refugees from other countries, used cannabis. The prohibition was not particularly forceful or effective at that point.
Although cannabis (and other drugs) is still illegal in Greece, lawmakers have eased the policies regarding it.
Ó Canada! Our Neighbor to the North Moves Towards Legal Marijuana with Federal Tax Proposal
OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that a proposal to place a federal tax on marijuana will help efforts to legalize recreational weed in Canada on Tuesday. The Canadian government has plans to make recreational weed legal in July of 2018.
The proposed tax would be $1 per gram of cannabis on up to 10 grams. A 10 percent federal tax would be placed on sales over 10 grams. The Prime Minister said that legalizing recreational marijuana will eliminate the black market and decrease crimes associated with drugs. The federal tax money raised would be split 50-50 between the provinces and the federal government. Provinces are upset over the equal sharing of tax revenues being proposed. They say that because the provinces will be liable for increased law enforcement and distribution preparation costs, that they should get the lion’s share amount of tax proceeds.
Sen. Al Franken Adds Name to Marijuana Legislation
On Tuesday, Minnesota Senator Al Franken officially became the fifth person to sign on as a co-sponsor for a pro-cannabis legalization bill that would authorize marijuana growers and cultivators to be eligible for taxation. If passed, the measure would further legitimize the manufacture and sale of weed—and the very signing itself indicates Franken’s ever-growing platform on pot.
A NATURAL PROGRESSION
Previously, Franken’s stance on the issue was ambiguous at best—and uninformed at the least. On a Buzzfeed podcast last year, the former Saturday Night Live writer-turned-popular politician stated that he was “not the guy to ask” about cannabis legalization.
“I should know more,” Franken continued, “or it’s not important or somewhere in between.”
The Many Reasons Cannabis is a Medicine Worth Legalizing
28 states in the United States, as well as many other countries around the world, have legalized medical marijuana – with some even legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. Canada, under the Liberal Government, recently proposed a bill legalizing not only medical marijuana, but also recreational marijuana. There are many reasons why cannabis is a medicine worth legalizing.
The medical applications of cannabis are vast. Clinical studies have shown that the chemical compounds in cannabis – CBD and THC – effectively treat chronic pain and a significant number of other ailments. The largest-ever study on cannabis examined over 10,000 other studies and found cannabis to be an effective treatment for chronic pain suffers, and medication for many other health conditions. Cannabis can be an effective treatment option for those suffering from muscle spasms due to multiple sclerosis, for nausea in those undergoing chemotherapy, for inflammation, arthritis, fibromyalgia, anxiety, stress, PTSD and more.
