 Virginia Senate Committee Kills Marijuana Decriminalization Bill


Thomas H. Clarke
Possessing small amounts of marijuana in Virginia will remain a criminal offense after a bill to decriminalize up to one ounce of cannabis was killed by a key committee in the state Senate on a party-line vote. After a brief hearing Wednesday, Senate Bill 686, filed by Sen. Adam Ebbin D Alexandria, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee voted 9 to 5 to kill the bill. Five Democrats voted for the bill, and nine Republicans, including committee co-chairmen Tommy Norment R James City County and Mark Obenshain R-Harrisonburg, voted to kill it. Senate Bill 686 would have ....

Investors` hopes for financial returns are reportedly fading
 Illinois marijuana market could reach $36M in 2016
CARLA K. JOHNSON
Patients aren`t the only ones disappointed by delays in Illinois` medical marijuana program. Investors` hopes for financial returns are fading, at least for this year, according to a new report. ArcView Market Research, a California consulting company, is telling investors the Illinois market could eventually expand to $36 million when it gets off the ground in 2016, but there will be far less revenue this year because of delays. Gov. Bruce Rauner plans to conduct a legal review of the program after former Gov. Pat Quinn declined to award business licenses before leaving o....

Matt Ferner
Loretta Lynch, the nominee for attorney general, said Wednesday during her confirmation hearing that she does not support the legalization of marijuana, and that she disagrees with President Barack Obama`s remarks about the drug being no more dangerous than alcohol. During her hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Jeff Sessions R-Ala. asked, ``Do you support the legalization of marijuana?`` ``Senator, I do not,`` Lynch replied. Sessions then went on to quote a 2014 New Yorker profile of Obama in which the president discussed his marijuana use as a young per....

 Medical marijuana dispensaries reopen in Clackamas County, but new outlets still banned
Desirae Duvall, manager, and Mario Mamone, owner of Maritime Cafe, worry that the proposed Clackamas County medical marijuana dispensary one-year moratorium would put them out of work permanently.

After being forced to close his medical marijuana cafe nine months ago, Mario Mamone is finally breathing a sigh of relief. Mamone, 65, can once again serve patients at his Maritime Cafe on Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard, thanks to an easing of Clackamas County`s moratorium on such outlets this month. Maritime Cafe, along with three other dispensaries in unincorporated Clackamas County, were given the OK Jan. 8 to reopen by the county Board of Commissioners. Over the past nine months, Mamone said he`s worked closely with the county`s planning department to help craft re....

Checking out a new dispensary is a gamble. Menus and discounts can be found online, but theres no early warning system against running into the middle-aged shop owner who mentions during checkout that hes the only one of his friends who doesnt use Viagra. The storefront side of cannabis has made dramatic leaps over the course of this year, and these six new shops will serve as bellwethers for where marijuana retail is headed in 2015 and beyond. For Patients... Farma 916 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 206-4357, farmapdx.com. Farma is the cutting edge of marijuana as medicine. The....

 Marijuana Legalization Under Attack In Alaska And Oregon
Johnny Green
Last time I checked, we live in a democracy. America is a country where some states have initiatives, and if those initiatives pass on Election Day, they become law. That applies to just about every public policy area, except marijuana policy. During the 2014 Election, voters in Alaska and Oregon passed marijuana legalization initiatives. If the initiatives were for anything else, they would become law with little to no changes, and no one would think twice about it. However, elected officials in both states are trying to trample on the will of voters by proposing major ch....
