3

Despite the snow, the holiday and the long lines, 3D Cannabis Center was abuzz with excitement yesterday morning with the start of recreational marijuana sales. Attempting to navigate both the media’s hungry demand for more information on this historic event and the public’s hungry demand for their first purchase of state government-approved marijuana, 3D hosted a press conference at 7:30 a.m. with those behind the A-64 campaign, followed by a strobe-light frenzy of camera flashes for what was presented as “the first sale in Colorado.” Source: http://www.tokeofthetown.com/2014/01/colorados_symbolic_first_legal_sale_goes_to_iraq_war_veteran.php

California attorney general says marijuana measures could bring loads of cash to state coffers

1

At least two of three marijuana legalization measures vying for the November, 2014 ballot would be good for California, according to the state Attorney General’s office.

Activists Decry New Legal Marijuana Rules

6

Changes to Dealer Provisions May Make It Harder for Those in Need to Get Medication Marijuana activist Sam Mellace hopes to be the first licensed medical marijuana producer in Canada after spending the past 10 years running his “pretty much” legal operation. The Abbotsford, B.C., resident has been producing marijuana since 2002 for himself and three other medical users, in accordance with current laws. But starting on April 1, 2014, authorized users will not be able to grow their own pot – they will have to get it from licensed producers. Mr.  Mellace finalized an application to Health Canada on…

A scientist in the United Kingdom has found that compounds derived from marijuana can kill cancerous cells found in people with leukemia, a form of cancer that is expected to cause an estimated 24,000 deaths in the United States this year. “Cannabinoids have a complex action; it hits a number of important processes that cancers need to survive,” study author Dr. Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London’s St. George medical school, told The Huffington Post. “For that reason, it has really good potential over other drugs that only have one function. I am impressed by its activity…

Canada Rolls Out a ‘$1 Billion’ MMJ Industry

3

Marijuana was Canada’s newest mail-order product Tuesday, the inaugural day of a controlled medical marijuana industry that is expected to grow to more than $1 billion dollars within 10 years. But even as the new system privatizes distribution, critics fear regulation under the conservative-led government will make it harder for patients to get access to the drug. In Canada, medical marijuana has been legal but highly regulated for more than a decade. Patients with doctor approval could grow or have someone else grow small quantities or request limited amounts from Health Canada, the national healthcare department. But the conservative-led government…

Drive-Thru Windows Allowed for Naperville Clinics

Medical marijuana dispensaries looking to open in Naperville will be allowed to do so in some retail areas and can have drive-thru windows. The Naperville City Council approved regulations for the dispensaries and cultivation centers before the drug officially becomes legal for medical purposes Jan. 1. Cities are not allowed to prohibit such facilities entirely, but they can impose more stringent zoning regulations than the state, which has rules about their proximity to homes and schools. Naperville council members agreed to limit cultivation facilities to industrial areas and require owners to go through a hearing process. Dispensing facilities will be…
