Long considered by much of American society—and our government—as a total no-no, marijuana is just now starting to lose its taboo label. Today, four U.S. states and the District of Columbia allow the recreational use of pot. Another 20 states have legalized medicinal use of THC, marijuana’s potent compound, and many pot advocates and political researchers expect these numbers to grow.

The Ultimate Prop 64 California Marijuana Legalization FAQ

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, November, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

Wait, so what happened?

California legalized marijuana. Proposition 64 passed by a margin of 56 percent  to 44 percent.

You’re shitting me.

Nope. The sixth-largest economy in the world just legalized cannabis.

And it was called Proposition 64?

It was on the ballot in California along with the presidential election. The state passed medical marijuana in 1996. Six years ago, there was a valiant attempt to make it all legal. That initiative lost narrowly. Activists went back to the drawing board and put together what was intended to be a model of the form, the mother of all marijuana legalization initiatives.  It was a tough fight, but attitudes toward marijuana are shifting so fast that, with the benefit of hindsight, it was clear the opposition never had a chance.

Californians vote to legalize recreational use of marijuana in the state

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, November, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Voters on Tuesday approved Proposition 64, making California the most populous state in the nation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.

The approval of the ballot measure creates the largest market for marijuana products in the U.S. It comes six years after California voters narrowly rejected a similar measure. Activists said passage would be an important moment in a fight for marijuana legalization across the U.S.

“We are very excited that citizens of California voted to end the failed policy of marijuana prohibition," said Nate Bradley, executive director of the California Cannabis Industry Assn. "Proposition 64 will allow California to take its rightful place as the center of cannabis innovation, research and development.”

Recreational Marijuana Passes In Massachusetts

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, November, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Legal marijuana is coming to New England.

Voters in Massachusetts approved a ballot initiative Tuesday to legalize the recreational use of the drug, according to results from the Associated Press. A similar ballot question was up for a vote in Maine, where the vote remained tight late Tuesday.

The introduction of the marijuana industry in New England could put increased pressure on the Connecticut legislature to consider legalizing the drug. With no ballot initiative process, the only way the sale and use of marijuana could become legal in Connecticut would be if the General Assembly passed a law and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed it.

“With victory in Nevada, it is safe to say that, this time, what happens in Vegas won’t stay in Vegas. Thanks to the support of a majority of voters, Nevada now joins the growing list of states that are rejecting prohibition and taking a smarter approach to marijuana. Success in Nevada will only inspire more Americans to stand up and demand an end to our nation’s embarrassing, failed policy of prohibition and this momentum will only continue to spread across the country.” said Erik Altieri, NORML’s new Executive Director
