Marijuana wins big!

Quote
November 9, 2016

While the outcome of the presidential election may be contentious, one thing is certain: marijuana is a big winner!   


In the most momentous Election Day in history for the marijuana policy reform movement, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada voted to end marijuana prohibition, and Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota adopted medical marijuana laws. In Montana, voters approved an initiative to re-establish patients’ access to medical marijuana providers and improve its existing medical marijuana law.

The only dim spot is in Arizona, where the legalization initiative is currently losing 48% to 52%, albeit with tens of thousands of additional ballots to be counted. (Sadly, the measure is likely to lose when the counting concludes in nine days.)

The number of states where marijuana is legal for adults doubled last night — from four to eight — and the first TWO states in the South made medical marijuana legal.

We’re proud of the voters in these states and want to thank all the donors, citizens, elected officials, organizations, and businesses that came together to bring about these victories.

Reporter’s notebook from Colorado: Health or a high

Jan. 1, 2017, 7:19 pm by Elizabeth Hewitt 

https://vtdigger.org/2017/01/01/reporters-notebook-colorado-health-high/

Agelbert NOTE: It's a great article, being both informative and educational about how it works in Colorado with Cannabis (nice pictures too!).

Of course, there is the obligatory, and thoroughly inaccurate, view of a medical doctor about "not having a sufficient body of knowledge about the health benefits of Cannabis". THAT is a bold faced lie. These Quacks that dispense prescription CRAP by the pharmaceutical industry, directly causing over hundred thousand deaths A YEAR, want to get all huffy about "studies" when they are bad mouthing Cannabis. Will the REAL "snake oil" (i.e. the A.M.A.) salesmen ever admit the insidious conflict of interest that makes them favor profit over patient? NOPE.   

HYPOCRITES! The biggest impediment to the FULL legalization of Cannabis is the mens rea duplicity and mendacity practiced by the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry with regard to Cannabis biochemistry. 

Anyway, outside of the silly comments by the Medical Doctor, the article is a good read. Since it was posted on a Vermont webs site, expect a lot of back and forth from Vermonters on the issue.  

There are some enemies of Cannabis here in Vermont that never fail to spout disinformation for the purpose of demonizing Cannabis. But some very well educated Vermonters are always there to politely correct the record, so to speak.

New ginger species discovered in African mountains

Alexandra Gerea March 28, 2017

Scientists working in the rugged Kabobo Massif in Congo have identified a new species of ginger, bringing the number of unique species in the area to eight, with five more being currently under study. This highlights the importance of preserving the site, which is one of the most diverse in Africa.


African landscapes have numerous biodiversity hotspots. Though they are not as famous as their counterparts in South America for instance, conservation is just as important. Who knows what valuable plants and medicines await discovery? Depicted here, the Rwenzori Mountains (not a part of this study).

Fifty shades of ginger

You might have thought ginger is a single plant, but there are actually fifty species of ginger spread throughout Africa and Madagascar. Both people and wildlife eat the fruits of many such plans, and the roots are also consumed, though to a lesser extent.

This particular plant has been called Aframomum ngamikkense, after one of the peaks in the Kabobo Massif. Its habitat is confined to 1,500 – 2,500 meters, occurring only in some isolated patches. However, in these patches, it’s very abundant. The plant was discovered during an expedition conducted by researchers from Trento Science Museum and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), with subsequent genetic analysis revealing that it’s a new species. Several frog species and a pangolin are being currently analyzed to confirm whether they too are previously undiscovered species. While scientists are aware of the special biodiversity in the area, it was surprising even to them to see just how rich their findings were. Andrew Plumptre, WCS Senior Scientist, commented:
Quote

Journal Reference: A new species of Aframomum (Zingiberaceae) from D.R. Congo.


“While mountains are known to encourage speciation, it is uncommon to find so many unique species at one site, particularly when we have only made biodiversity surveys over a period of about four months.”

Scientists from WCS have discovered a new species of wild ginger, spicing up a wave of recent wildlife discoveries in the Kabobo Massif. Image credits: A.J. Plumptre/WCS.

They hope that this boon of biodiversity will help conservation efforts in the massif. So far, a total of 558 terrestrial vertebrates and 1,410 plant species have been documented in the area since the 1950s, but civil war and an overall lack of security prevented virtually any conservation effort. The Kabobo Natural Reserve had its boundaries formally approved in December 2016 by the Provincial Governor of Tanganyika Province and while this is a laudable first step, it is still only a first step.

Now, a conservation plan has been devised for the Kobobo Massif, combined with the nearby Ngandja Reserves and Luama Katanga Reserve, which together cover 2,683 square miles (6,951 square kilometers). Deo Kujirakwinja, WCS Project manager in Kabobo, believes both internal and external efforts are vital to the sustainable management of the reserve, and identifying new species can go a long way to that objective — drawing international attention to the importance of the area and harboring a sense of pride in nearby communities.

Nevada became the fifth state in the U.S. with stores selling marijuana for recreational purposes, opening a market early Saturday that is eventually expected to outpace any other in the nation thanks to the millions of tourists who flock to Las Vegas.

People began purchasing marijuana shortly after midnight, just months after voters approved legalization in November and marking the fastest turnaround from the ballot box to retail sales in the country.

Hundreds of people lined up at Essence Cannabis Dispensary on the Las Vegas Strip. People were excited and well-behaved as a lone security guard looked on. A valet was available to park the cars of customers.

A cheer erupted when the doors opened.

Those 21 and older with a valid ID can buy up to an ounce of pot. Tourists are expected to make nearly two of every three recreational pot purchases in Nevada, but people can only use the drug in a private home.

It remains illegal to light up in public areas, including the Las Vegas Strip, casinos, bars, restaurants, parks, convention centers and concert halls — places frequently visited by tourists. Violators face a $600 fine.

And driving under the influence of marijuana is still illegal.

Despite the limits on where people can get high and restrictions on where the industry can advertise, dispensaries worked furiously to prepare for the launch. They stamped labels on pot products, stocked up their shelves, added security and checkout stations, and announced specials.

Desert Grown Farms hired about 60 additional employees. Workers in scrubs, hair nets and surgical masks slapped stickers on sealed jars this week as others checked on marijuana plants or carefully weighed buds.

“It would be a good problem to have if I couldn’t meet my demand,” said CEO Armen Yemenidjian, whose Desert Grown Farms owns the only dispensary that is selling recreational pot on the Las Vegas Strip, across the street from the Stratosphere hotel.

Some dispensaries took to social media to spread the word or tried to draw in buyers with special events. Some planned to give away free marijuana to their first 100 customers or throw parties with barbecues and food trucks later in the afternoon.

Some facilities are in strip malls, while others, in stereotypical Las Vegas fashion, are in neighborhoods shared by strip clubs.

Nevada joins Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Alaska in allowing adults to buy the drug that’s still banned by the federal government.

https://apnews.com/babe24d2ed15476c81e0398882973eb5/Nevada-launches-sales-of-legal-recreational-marijuana

Can I legally grow my own cannabis?

If you’re a Nevada resident, yes, you may! An adult may grow up to six plants in an enclosed, secure space, with up to 12 plants per household.

We don't need no stinkin potfolio.

Well friends, I told ya we could figure out a way to git more folks to bet in Nevada! Please Pass the Acapulco Gold, Miss Poodle.  ;D

Food for Forage: Dandelion, It’s Not Just a Weed

SNIPPET:

For decades now, dandelions have been a source of disdain for gardeners. Down on their knees, galoshes in a bunch, they have ripped them up with reckless abandon, fearful that the flowers will bloom and send seeds whirling around the well-manicured rows of the garden. Or else, they have done such violent things as mowed down dandelions in their youth, dumped boiling water on them, and doused them in vinegar.

But, times have changed, and the new-age gardener is reaching further back into the days of old. Dandelions have long been used medicinally, and a century or more ago, they were a respected source of food for many cultures, including Native Americans. Though suburbia put a temporary hold on that, the dandelion is making a comeback. Nowadays, it’s finding its way back into our cuisine.

It only makes sense to make use of the apparent “noxious weed”, as it is super nutritious, medicinal, and abundant. We don’t even have to cultivate dandelions, as we do most of the vegetables we eat because just one flower head can provide up to 200 new plants, with no tilling, fertilizing, or “weeding” required.

I have removed the disinformation posted here by K-Dog questioning the serious scientific studies (there are MANY studies confirming CO2 will continue to grievously heat the atmosphere for centuries even if we stopped burning fossl fuels today) predicting increased atmospheric heating for centuries after we stop burning fossil fuels.

This is just one of them:
Quote
Even if carbon dioxide emissions came to a sudden halt, the carbon dioxide already in Earth’s atmosphere could continue to warm our planet for hundreds of years, according to Princeton University-led research published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

If he has no interest in objective scientific inquiry, he has no business posting here on that issue. K-Dog is in denial of the grievous harm fossil fuels do to our planet. He will not even acknowledge the empirical data from the following web site (available 24/7) that shows how much pollutants are in our atmosphere.

For example, because of the fires in the Los Angelos Area, parts of the atmosphere there have over 469 PPM of CO2.  :(  :P
https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/chem/surface/level/overlay=co2sc/orthographic=-120.04,34.85,3000/loc=-119.558,33.721

While you are there, don't miss the CO levels. They are OFF THE CHARTS!
https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/chem/surface/level/overlay=cosc/orthographic=-120.04,34.85,3000/loc=-119.558,33.721

If K-Dog wants to wallow in la la land, that's his business. I am done trying to get him to think logically and objectively in regard to Catastrophic Climate Change causes.

All that said, K-Dog can be quite objective and logical when it comes to Cannabis. He and I are on the same page in that area. ;D

Big Pharma Tries to Monopolize CBD Oil Market

December 11, 2017 • 129,805 views

Story at-a-glance

֍ The cannabinoids in cannabis — cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — work by way of naturally-occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body

֍ The fact that your body is replete with cannabinoid receptors, key to so many biological functions, is why there's such enormous medical potential for cannabis

֍ South Dakota has rescheduled CBD from a Schedule I to a Schedule IV substance by excluding it from the definition of marijuana

֍ GW Pharmaceuticals failed in its efforts to restrict Schedule IV classification to FDA approved CBD products only, which prevented the company from creating a monopoly in South Dakota

֍ The legal status of CBD oil as a nutritional supplement is now threatened by drug companies seeking FDA approval for CBD-containing drugs

Vermont House passes marijuana legalization bill!

                     


Quote
Thanks for all your calls and emails to representatives!

Dear Anthony,

We did it!   Today, the House passed H. 511 in a 81-63 vote. Gov. Phil Scott has already pledged that he will sign the bill after it passes one more procedural vote in the Senate.

Thanks to all of you who contacted your representatives and helped build support for this historic reform!

If you are available next Tuesday, January 9, that would be a great day to visit the State House. Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman and allied reform organizations will participate in “a full day of press, advocacy and education” beginning at 10 a.m. in Room 10 of the State House. For more details, and to RSVP, check out the Facebook event page.

Tuesday may also be the day the Senate passes H. 511.

Please share this great news with your friends and family! Now that this hurdle has been crossed, we can now turn our attention to advocating for a reasonably regulated and taxed system.
 

Sincerely,

Matt Simon
New England Political Director

Agelbert NOTE: Within the next few days, Vermont will fully decriminalize small portions of Cannabis. That will move Vermont to the far left of the info graphic n the following article.  8)



..
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a good chance you’ve heard that the Marijuana Industry is undergoing explosive growth across the United States.

While support for federal legalization of marijuana continues to grow, a small group of legal marijuana companies are strategically positioning themselves to cash in on this fast-growing trend in a really big way.

“The Priceline of Pot” and a “Game Changer” for the Marijuana Industry: How Smart Investors Are Seeing Green

Many experts agree that Legalized Marijuana is quickly becoming the next big gold rush as it continues to spread like wildfire across the United States.

Needless to day, smart entrepreneurs are rushing to stake their claim in this promising new industry. The “Green Gold Rush” is quickly spawning numerous opportunities for growers, retailers, wholesalers, shippers, fertilizers, accessories, and of course the edibles. In other words, this is just the beginning!

Unfortunately, most investors know very little about legalized marijuana and because of this, they’re simply not prepared to capitalize on the opportunity to start a new business in this emerging industry. 

Luckily, there are a number of relatively easy ways the average investor can make impressive returns investing in the public markets. One good example is Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY).  This Denver, Colorado based company is a well-established industry leader, and is currently poised to profit from several, if not all areas of the booming legalized marijuana space.

Many people who got rich during the California Gold Rush of 1849, were not gold miners. Many savvy entrepreneurs became millionaires by building successful companies that provided prospectors and miners with important services and supplies.

In fact, California’s first millionaire was Sam Brannan, an ex-Mormon who hyped the Gold Rush in his newspaper, The California Star. He then profited from the Gold Rush by supplying miners—at extravagant prices—through his general stores in San Francisco and Sacramento. For a time, Brannan’s sales topped $5,000 a day. That’s the equivalent of $125,000 in today’s dollars.

Keep reading, and you’ll find more information on a savvy technology company may be uniquely positioned to profit from the marijuana boom, just like the entrepreneurs who got rich selling supplies during the Gold Rush back in the 1800s.

This company could very well be the best investment opportunity we’ve come across in years.

Not only has Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY) been called a “game-changer” by NBC, but it has also been referred to as the “The Priceline of Pot” by thestreet.com.

Why? Well, because LBUY has become the definitive online resource for finding legal cannabis deals and specials. The company’s website, Leafbuyer.com, helps connect millions of consumers with dispensaries and suppliers all over the USA.

Remember what Priceline.com did for the global travel industry? Well that’s what Leafbuyer.com could soon do for the thriving legal marijuana industry.

This is great news for investors, because LBUY is currently being traded on US stock exchanges, making it one of the very few, publicly-listed companies with solid growth and fundamentals available in the public markets.

Look at it this way. In a few years, the fast-growing legal cannabis arena could leave many investors reminiscing sadly over the ground-floor companies that got away, or it could leave them basking in the rewards of the lucrative opportunities they took advantage of.

Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY)  is on the verge of being recognized by “The Street” which could blast the company’s stock into the stratosphere, in the near future!

In other words, smart investors may soon be embracing the ground-floor appeal of this new publicly traded company that’s being dubbed The “Priceline” of the legal cannabis industry.

How Leafbuyer.com is Disrupting the Marijuana Industry (OTC:LBUY)

In case you didn’t know, Leafbuyer.com has already grown into the largest cannabis deals network in the entire country, with 5 million users monthly. First launched in Colorado, LBUY is poised at the epicenter of the projected expansion of America’s legal marijuana industry. It has already saved active pot consumers over $5 million, and that number is growing exponentially. Following the 2016 election, the company is expanding into California, Florida, Nevada, Massachusetts, Arkansas, and North Dakota.

LBUY currently services over 250 of the 600 dispensaries in the Denver area and based on its 1st quarter numbers, LeafBuyer.com is fast approaching a one million dollar run rate. And that’s after targeting just one potential market.

Obviously,the company’s growth rate will accelerate as it expands into 28 new markets. Assuming LBUY can duplicate its proven business model in each state, it’s easy to see how this up and coming company could quickly become one of the marijuana industry’s the biggest, and most influential players.

Chances are, you are familiar with Groupon, a company that connects its subscribers with local merchants who offer a variety of deals. Well, during 2016 Groupon raked in a whopping $3.1 billion.

Groupon has done for the consumer coupon industry, what Priceline.com has done for the global travel industry. And that’s exactly what LBUY has the potential to do for the legal marijuana industry!

LeafBuyer’s national network of cannabis deals and information already reaches millions of consumers every month. It is also the official cannabis deals platform of TheCannabist.com (owned by The Denver Post) and WestWord.com.

The company is working with partners in each state, and plans to launch nationwide marketing initiative in the coming months. It goes without saying, as it opens new markets, Leafbuyer will scale operations as it offers an ever-growing selection of cannabis deals to more, and more consumers.

Cayla Shortley, Director of Sales at LeafBuyer is quoted as saying:

    “We are excited to expand our platform to new and growing markets across the country. We are now beyond the tipping point. Our success in Colorado can be attributed to a customer-centric focus and intense grassroots marketing.”

    “We have witnessed a strong demand for our online platform stemming from Colorado,” said Andre Leonard, Marketing Manager of Leafbuyer.com. “With the success we have had in the hub of the cannabis gold rush, it was an easy decision that our next step would be to scale operations nationally to these new markets.”

When you consider how big the legal marijuana market is projected to grow in the near future, it’s easy to see how LBUY is on its way to becoming a monster Cash Cow!

Yes, we’re currently witnessing the first stage of a cannabis GOLD RUSH!

The only question is… will you get in on the ground floor? Or will wait until everybody knows that cannabis stocks are a great investment?

There’s an old saying that goes like this, “when everybody knows it’s a good investment, it’s no longer a good investment”.

And that holds true now, more than ever. Smart investors know that timing is a critical factor when it comes to profit hunting. Everybody knows what they say about the early bird. That’s right. He’s the one who gets the worm, or in this case, the massive returns.

The dot.com era in the ’90s was responsible for turning Yahoo and eBay into the giant, multi-billion dollar companies they are today.Well, there’s another company that’s considered by far one of the most successful stories to come out of the ’90s dot.com boom. That company is Amazon.

All you have to do is watch the news to see that Amazon is on an absolute tear this year. Jeff Bezos and company recently acquired WholeFoods for 13.7 billion, and they’re fast on their way to becoming a $1 trillion-dollar juggernaut.

So How Big is the Legalized Marijuana Opportunity?

According to Forbes magazine, North American Marijuana sales grew by 30% to an astonishing 6.7 BILLION dollars.  They also estimate North American sales are projected to exceed 20 Billion dollars by 2021. That’s an annual compounded growth rate of 25%. In case you didn’t know, this growth rate is larger and faster than the dot-com era growth rate of 22%.

In other words, this represents one of the most exciting industries for investors that we have seen in more than a decade.

And if that’s not enough to grab your attention, you’ll be excited to know that in Canada, recently legalized recreational marijuana, promises to spark a brand new $22.6-billion industry. A new study also suggests that the Canadian pot industry will easily eclipse the sale of beer, wine, and spirits… all combined.

A soon-to-be-released Deloitte report entitled “Recreational Marijuana: Insights and Opportunities”, concluded that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s legalization of cannabis next year could add much needed fuel to Canada’s lagging economy.

Mark Whitmore, vice-chair of Deloitte, said in an interview on Wednesday (2).

    “There hasn’t been anything like this — and granted it wasn’t legislated — but you think of the dot-com … flurry,”

The November 2016 election in the United States was a turning point, when we saw four more states vote to legalize recreational marijuana. This brought the total number of recreational use states to eight.

At the time of this writing, there are a total of 29 states, along with the District of Columbia that allow legal use of medicinal marijuana. And a number of states have pending medical and recreational marijuana legislation in the works.

One of the biggest markets that will continue to have a huge impact on the legal recreational cannabis industry was the state of California, which boasts the 6th largest economy in the world.

Billions and billions of dollars could potentially be made from legal marijuana sales, in California alone.  That, in conjunction with the passage of marijuana laws in states like Florida, means that more than half of the American population will have legal access to medical or recreational cannabis.

In fact, Nevada is shooting to be the first state in the nation to legalize cannabis social clubs. Imagine watching dozens of social clubs for pot users popping up along on the Vegas Strip. Of course, other states will follow Nevada’s lead, especially if the clubs offer states another stream of tax revenue from the sale of legalized marijuana.

We can all agree that it doesn’t take a genius to see that cannabis is already on its way to becoming a huge industry serving a massive consumer market!

Millions of marijuana users across America could rely on Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY) to get connected to the best deals at dispensaries in their local areas. Plus, a variety of businesses using the company’s website are already thriving, and watching their sales increase exponentially.

Widespread acceptance of marijuana has become a huge part of pop culture with celebrities like Morgan Freeman, Patrick Stewart, Snoop Dogg, and Rihanna to name a few, being openly candid about their love affair with weed.

On top of that, a recent CBS News poll from 2017 shows that support for legalizing marijuana is higher now than ever. It concluded that a whopping 61% of Americans think cannabis should be legalized. This is a 5% increase from last year, and the highest percentage that has ever been recorded in the poll. (5)

The bottom line? A staggering 88% of Americans are openly in favor of marijuana use for medical or recreational purposes. That’s almost 9 out of 1o adults!

Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, and while the naysayers said the initiative would never be a success, the numbers have proven them wrong, year after year. In just 10 months, the state saw 1 billion dollars in legal cannabis sales during 2016. (7)

According to the Tax Foundation, nationwide legalization of marijuana could generate up to $28 billion in additional tax revenues for federal, state, and local governments. (8). Needless to say, this is a great reason for bureaucrats to lend their support to the legalization of pot in their respective states.

Analysts at Cowen and Co. estimate the cannabis sector could be worth $50 billion by 2026 if you include black market sales entering the legal market. (9)

The fast-growing cannabis industry has helped many reluctant state legislators recognize the economic benefit of legalizing marijuana, and the taxes could reel in significant revenue for their state.

It’s simple logic. As more and more states legalize marijuana, more and more marijuana users will use Leafbuyer.com to find the best deals! (OTC: LBUY)

Below you’ll see the market cap on some marijuana stocks dominating the market right now, and how they’ve performed in the past year. (Figures are as of March 17th, 2017)

GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH): $3.0 billion, up 64%

Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQOTH: TWMJF): $904 million, up 259%

Aphria (NASDAQOTH: APHQF) $440 million, up 381%

Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF): $482 million, up 299%

AXIM Biotechnologies (NASDAQOTH: AXIM): $562 million, up 1,720%

Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CRBP): $450 million, up 431%

New Hampshire House Approves Marijuana Legalization Bill  ;D

 Jan 09, 2018  Chris Sununu, cultivation, Gilford, Glen Aldrich, HB 656, New Hampshire, NH, possession

The New Hampshire House of Representatives approved a bill to make marijuana legal for adults on Tuesday by a vote of 207-139. The bill will now move to the House Ways and Means Committee before moving on to the Senate.

HB 656, which was introduced last session by Rep. Glen Aldrich (R-Gilford), would make possession of three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana legal for adults aged 21 and older. Home cultivation of up to three mature and three immature plants would be legal for adults as well.

Last year, the New Hampshire Legislature voted overwhelmingly to replace criminal penalties for simple marijuana possession with civil penalties. Gov. Chris Sununu (R) signed the bill into law.

💫 Vermont makes history by becoming the first state to legislatively legalize marijuana 🕊

Quote
Until today, all eight of the states that have made marijuana legal for adults did so through ballot initiatives. Over the past three elections in 2012, 2014, and 2016, voters in Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada (and Washington, D.C.) approved ballot questions to legalize marijuana.

Today, we reached an important milestone in Vermont: a state legislature has enacted a law, signed by the governor, that legalizes possession and home cultivation of marijuana for adults aged 21 and older. 🌞

MPP has been working in the Green Mountain State for 15 years, and we want to thank you, our donors large and small, for sustaining our reform efforts. We’re proud to be working alongside dedicated in-state allies, without whom this success would not be possible. There is still more to do in Vermont. Our coalition’s goal, this year or next, is to enact a law that regulates marijuana and allows for its legal sale (the newly enacted law only allows possession and home cultivation).

Now that Vermont has taken action legislatively, we hope that other states will follow that lead. In Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Rhode Island, lawmakers are considering legalization bills this year. Please consider making a donation to MPP to support our state-level reform efforts.

And at the national level, we are pushing Congress to protect state marijuana laws from any federal interference. A reminder: please call your members of Congress and tell them that states should be allowed to decide their own marijuana laws.

Thank you! 🌿

N.H. House Committee 🦍 Tries to Crush Legalization Hopes

 Mar 13, 2018  HB 656, New Hampshire, NH, regulation, Ways and Means Committee

The New Hampshire House Ways and Means Committee is attempting to abuse its power by recommending that the House kill the marijuana legalization bill. If the House agrees to the committee’s motion of “interim study” when HB 656 reaches the floor next week, the bill will be dead for the year.

As a reminder, the New Hampshire House has already voted 207-139 to pass HB 656. Instead of legalizing retail sales — which is something a study commission is considering — the bill as amended would simply allow adults to cultivate six plants, three of which could be mature. It would also legalize possession of three-quarters of an ounce or less, and marijuana in excess of that amount would be legal as long as it is stored along with the plants that produced it. You can read a summary of the bill here.

HB 656 should have gone directly to the Senate after it passed the House, but instead it was sent to the Ways and Means Committee, which only deals with issues related to revenue. Some legislators are trying to make this issue complicated, but HB 656 is actually very simple and there is no good reason not to move the bill forward.

If you are a New Hampshire resident, please email your representatives right now and urge them to oppose this outrageous action by the committee.
