Majority of Michigan Voters Support Marijuana Legalization

Michigan Would Vote Yes for MarijuanaDavid Weeks - 9/29/2013 - stoneycoast.com

Good news from the great state of Michigan! A recently released poll shows that the majority of Michigan voters would affirm a resolution that would decriminalize the use or sale of marijuana, or even entirely legalize marijuana.

Why This Is Interesting

Although many enlightened people would be unsurprised by this development, especially given the fact that the state has already legalized the use and sale of medical marijuana, the results of the poll are interesting indeed.

In fact, many are quite surprised by the poll findings, in part due to the difficulty that thestate has experienced in its implementation of medical marijuana policies. (Although the state of Michigan has legalized the use and sale of marijuana for medical purposes,

Denver Legitimizes the Business of Marijuana

Colorado MMJDan Mender - 9/24/2013 - stoneycoast.com

We have extensively covered the landmark marijuana decisions in states like Colorado and Washington. Still, in the quick call to rejoice, many have forgotten that the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana use must be accompanied by new practices and policies that govern the production and sale of the product.

The state of Colorado has become the first of many states to address this critical issue. 

Denver Passes Historic Regulations

This past week, the Denver City Council passed a bill that can only be described as historic. This particular piece of legislation sets forth the rules and regulations that will govern the retail marijuana industry in the city.

While most cities and municipalities in the region have elected to shelve legislation of this variety – hoping, they say, to wait and see how the legalization of marijuana pans out – the Denver City Council believed that the appropriate time to pass

Bio-Chemist Dennis Hill Cures His Stage 4 Cancer With Cannabis Oil

David Weeks - 9/18/2013 - stoneycoast.com


Another case of cancer has allegedly been cured using hemp oil. Dennis Hill is a well-educated and highly qualified Bio-chemist, who specializes in cancer research.

In 2010, he was diagnosed with aggressive (Gleason 8 scores), metastatic adenocarcinoma. He had heard that hemp oil (also known as cannabis oil) was a very safe and extremely effective course of action to take against all forms of cancer. Upon further research, he discovered that this was due to the fact that cannabinoids, the active compound in cannabis, target only sick cells (cancerous cells) and eliminate them. They do this well, and without harming a single healthy or living cell.

I took cannabinoid extract for six months; and had no chemotherapy or radiation. A recent biopsy showed no cancer remaining.

He also states the reason why he went forward with this treatment with no chemo. He refers to the fact that hemp oil cannot do any harm; and if it didn’t work, he could then resort to chemo and more severe treatment options.

Justice Department Clears the Way for Industrial Hemp in Kentucky

KY Hemp is a GoDavid Weeks - 9/11/2013 - stoneycoast.com

As has been reported extensively, Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced that the federal government would not pursue legal action against states that elect to legalize marijuana. This means that states are essentially free to choose for themselves how they would like to handle marijuana and cannabis within their own jurisdiction.

Great News for Kentucky!

The announcement from the Attorney General’s Office paves the way for Kentucky’s industrial hemp production industry to commence operations. Murray State University’s National Public Radio station reports: 

State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer believes the ruling clarifies that the Federal Government does not and will not view Kentucky’s industrial hemp as an illegal product and they will not intervene on state

The real cost of marijuana prohibition.

burning-money

Dan Loffler - 8/29/2013 - stoneycoast.com

The war on marijuana is costly. The US spends an estimated $7.7 billion per year enforcing the prohibition locally and federally. Then add an estimated $9 billion in potential tax revenues for the sale of legal marijuana.

Add the cost of incarceration. Based on FBI statistics. In 2011, law enforcement personnel arrested 757,969 people arrested for marijuana crimes. According to Urban Institute Justice Policy Center, the yearly cost for an inmate in a minimum security prison is $21,006. According to the U.S. Sentencing Commission, in 2010, the average prison sentence for inmates incarcerated for marijuana abuses is 36.8 years.

With 757,969 individuals incarcerated for marijuana, at $21,006 a pop, that is $15,921,896,814 or almost $16 billion every year.

So the direct cost of prohibition is somewhere around $32 billion a year. But what about the indirect costs?

Police Push Back after Holder’s Announcement

 
no deaths ever marijuanaDan Mender - 9/9/2013 - stoneycoast.com

The Huffington Post recently ran a provocatively titled piece called “Here Are All The People Who Have Died From A Marijuana Overdose.” When you click the link, you will discover a hilarious GIF of baby pandas snuggling in a Chinese forest.

The point? That no one has actually died of a marijuana overdose. In fact, as the piece goes on to explain, it would require nearly 50,000 times the amount of THC in a joint to kill a person, meaning that the risk of any marijuana user dying from the substance is infinitesimally small.

 Police Refuse to See the Logic

The Huffington Post posted the panda GIF to illustrate a point about how various police organizations have responded to Attorney General Eric Holder’s declaration that the United States Federal Government will not pursue legal action against states that elect to legalize marijuana, either medical or recreational. This is in contrast with previous federal policies that

MMJ Legalization Ignites Scientific Innovation

Dan Mender - 9/15/2013 - stoneycoast.com

While most of the debate about medical marijuana focuses on whether or not marijuana is dangerous as well as what ailments it is effective in treating, very little has been said about the scientific innovation afoot when it comes to modern medical marijuana technology. After all, there is a lot of interesting innovation in the medical marijuana industry these days. Read on to find out more about the cool science happening in the Colorado marijuana industry.

 

New Products

One of the most exciting things happening in Colorado is the sheer number of new cannabis products that are available for legal consumers of marijuana. In addition to more “traditional” marijuana buds and concentrated hash oils, there are new product lines of consumables.
