trump administration puts recreational marijuana in crosshairs

Recreational marijuana is in the sights of the Trump administration, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday.Spicer, during his daily briefing, gave the first clear glimpse at how the new administration views the burgeoning rise of legal marijuana.“There’s a big difference between (medical marijuana) and recreational marijuana, and I think when you see something like the opioid addiction crisis blossoming in so many states around this country, the last thing we should be doing is encouraging people,” Spicer said, when asked about the topic of legalization. “There is still a federal law that we need to abide by in terms of recreational marijuana and other drugs of that nature.”Read the full story on The Cannabist.Advertisement

attorney general jeff sessions just hinted at a crackdown on legal marijuana

Attorney General Jeff Sessions hinted that the Department of Justice might begin more aggressive enforcement of federal laws against recreational marijuana, even in states that have legalized it.Speaking at the National Association of Attorneys General's annual winter meeting on Tuesday, the Attorney General said that the agency might enforce laws in eight states and Washington, D.C., that have legalized recreational marijuana."States, they can pass the laws they choose," he said. "I would just say, it does remain a violation of federal law to distribute marijuana throughout any place in the United States, whether a state legalizes it or not.”Sessions, who has long opposed marijuana legalization, reiterated that view in response to a question on drug policy."I'm not sure we're going to be

marijuana legalization could close budget gap: pa official

Pennsylvania's auditor has an idea to combat the state's budget deficit — legalize recreational marijuana.Eugene DePasquale, the state's auditor, said Monday at a news conference that legalizing marijuana could amass at least $200 a year for Pennsylvania, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.His projections are based on Colorado, where legalizing weed brought in nearly $70 million in May 2016.He did note that it was only one of many ideas he has on how to close the state's budget gap, which could be as high as $3 billion for the next two years.“I wasn’t necessarily convinced Pennsylvania should be the first, but now that we have actual results and data from other states, the evidence is clear that this can be both good socially and fiscally,” Mr. DePasquale said, according to the Pittsburgh

longmont to consider partial repeal of medical, recreational pot-shop ban

Later this year, Longmont's city staff is expected to present the City Council with a report about its options if it wants to enact a partial repeal of the city's ban on shops selling medical and recreational marijuana sales inside the city limits.At least some council members indicated during meetings last year that they'd be willing to consider revising or ending Longmont's prohibitions against pot shops.The issue resurfaced on Tuesday night, when Mayor Dennis Coombs floated a motion to have the council vote to direct the city staff to draft an ordinance that would allow as many as six marijuana dispensaries to operate in Longmont — as long as they're located out of the core downtown area and acceptable distances from schools.Councilwoman Polly Christensen, however, said it had been her

pro-pot arguments fly higher with likely voters

Four states legalized recreational marijuana in November, nearly doubling the number of states where recreational pot is legal. As more states consider joining them, a range of arguments for and against legalization is swirling around the national conversation.But which of these arguments resonate most strongly with Americans? It's the arguments that support legalization, according to a new study co-authored by Jeff Niederdeppe, associate professor of communication in Cornell University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.More than 60 percent of people surveyed in the study said they supported legalization because they agreed with arguments saying it would increase tax revenues, create a profitable new industry, reduce prison crowding and lower the cost of law enforcement.In contras

2 bills advance in colorado to curb growing pot at home

DENVER — The nation's most generous grow-your-own marijuana laws came closer Monday to being curbed in Colorado, where the state House advanced a pair of bills aimed at cracking down on people who grow weed outside the commercial, taxed system.One bill would set a statewide limit of 16 marijuana plants per house, down from a current limit of 99 plants before registering with state health authorities.The bill passed 65-10 after sponsors argued that Colorado's generous home-grown weed laws make it impossible to tell whether someone is growing plants legally, or whether the plants are destined for the black market.Of the 28 states with legal medical marijuana, only Colorado currently allows more than 16 pot plants per home.Many Colorado jurisdictions including Denver already have per-home pla

longmont council gives initial ok to home-grow pot regulations

Longmont's City Council members on Tuesday night voted their unanimous preliminary approval of an ordinance that would regulate and set plant limits on the growing of marijuana inside homes for the residents' medical or recreational use.The measure, which also deals with inside-the-home production and processing of marijuana products, generally sets a six-plants-per-adult resident limit — up to a maximum of 30 plants per dwelling unit if five or more adults are living in that unit.A state-registered medical marijuana patient could exceed that six-plant limit if his or her physician has recommended that more are needed to produce the amount of pot or pot-infused products appropriate to treat the patient's condition.State-registered primary medical marijuana caregivers also would be allowed

These chemicals may be sprayed on plant-based materials that resemble cannabis and sold as "not for human consumption" potpourri or incense at stores. These chemicals can be as much as 40 to 600 times more potent than THC. "The study, recently p

state orders nederland marijuana business to stop soliciting investments

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies issued a cease-and-desist order Thursday against the owner of two Nederland marijuana businesses the agency says sought investments online without a state issued license.The cease-and-desist order names John W. Long Jr., of Nederland, and his businesses, Green Farms Consulting and Green Farms, according to a news release from DORA. Both businesses are limited liability corporations.When reached by phone Thursday, Long referred questions to his attorneys, whom he would not identify. The state division of securities alleges that Green Farms posted an advertisement on Craigslist for at least one month last summer that solicited investments of $1 million for shares in the Colorado medical and recreational marijuana business.

paying for trump's dubious immigration goals isn't easy (or cheap)

When it comes to the debate over Trump’s Muslim ban and proposed border wall, much of the discussion focuses on the ideas on the merits, which certainly makes sense. But it’s worth pausing to appreciate the fact that the president’s priorities, in addition to being misguided, aren’t cheap.And according to the administration’s budget plans, Mexico isn’t paying for Trump’s priorities; the Coast Guard is.The Post’s report added, “The plan puts the administration in the unusual position of trading spending on security programs for other security priorities at the southern border, raising questions among Republican lawmakers and homeland-security experts.”A Politicoreport, meanwhile, said Trump’s proposal for moving funds around – away from the Coast Guard and FEMA, towards his illegal immigrat

Longmont's City Council on Tuesday night formally approved a contract with the state for a $567,640 state marijuana impact grant the city plans to spend on the prevent, intervention and suppression of youths' marijuana use.The Colorado Department of Local Affairs' award to the city, originally announced last fall, is part of the $985,760 in grants being given to assist local governments that do not allow retail marijuana sales in their jurisdictions but that have experienced the impacts of the sale, transfer, cultivation or processing of retail marijuana — whether that's being done legally outside those local governments' boundaries, or illegally inside them.Longmont plans to use part of its $567,640 grant to remodel and furnish the former Fire Station No. 3 at 1200 Lashley St., which city

housing corporation can't evict man growing 'medical' marijuana

Photo: Charlotte Lake via Depositphotos.comA 58-year-old Amsterdam man has been told he can remain in his home even though he continues to grow medical marijuana for his own use, judges said earlier this week.Ronald Hillebrand, who has hiv, was faced with eviction by housing corporation Eigen Haard for growing marijuana which he says is crucial to help him deal with his illness.Hillebrand says he uses some 5 grammes of marijuana a day to combat nausea. Medical marijuana sold in pharmacies, he says, does not control his symptoms and buying the weed in a cannabis cafe is too expensive.Last year Eigen Haard began the process of having him evicted even though a court last year ruled he could continue to grow the plants. According to the AD, he has 51 on the go at an

trump admin also backs india's nsg bid

Despite its best effort, the Obama administration could not get the job done due to opposition from China. The baton now has been

h-1b visa reform to be part of immigration package: us to india

The US has assured India that the H-1B visas issue was not a priority for it and would be part of the larger immigration reforms package that the new Trump administration is working on.The assurance came amid an ongoing debate in the US and reported moves by the Trump Administration to bring out an executive order to curtail the use of H-1B visas. "There was a sense that there is a recognition of the contribution of the Indian tech sector. Certainly this is not very much...not a priority of the government. They are concerned with the immigration issue...most of the issues are quite different," visiting Commerce Secretary Rita Teotia told reporters at a news conference here. "Nevertheless when it is addressed, it would be part of the overall immigration package," Teotia said.Teotia, along w

presstv-‘trump administration dominated by zionists

A proposal by the administration of US President Donald Trump to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps a “terrorist organization” underscores that the White House is dominated by the Jewish Zionist lobby, says a political analyst.The proposal against the IRGC has reportedly stalled over warnings from US defense and intelligence officials that the move could "backfire," Reuters reported Friday, citing US and European officials familiar with the matter.The proposal was temporarily halted amid an internal debate arguing that the measure could undermine the fight against the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group and complicate the enforcement of Iran’s nuclear deal, the unnamed sources said.“The internal discussion at the Trump administration to declare the Revolutionary Guards in Iran as a
