Major hurdle cleared in Liberals bid to legalize marijuana


Those issues largely force marijuana-related companies to deal in cash due to their lack of access to the financial system, raising safety concerns.

Senator Brad Zaun is still trying to pass legislation even though the more expansive version of the bill is dead.

Pennsylvania officials on Thursday outlined the process that medical schools can use to apply for state permission to conduct medical marijuana research.

This is a significant expansion over the previous law, which restricted access to medical marijuana in the state to THC-free formulations for the treatment of epilepsy resistant to conventional therapies.

The motivation for the closed-loop system seems purely based in tracking the money, not in fixing actual banking problems, protecting banks serving the industry or encouraging patient access.

Kissel said that numerous people who testified at public hearings were those who are patients in the state's medical marijuana program seeking cheaper drugs. "We want to prevent any opportunity for the black market to evolve here in Oklahoma".

Seitz did not respond to a request for comment.

The health department will issue up to 13 permits to grow and process marijuana and 23 permits to dispense medical marijuana products later this year. "What's the objective of doing this if private banks are willing?" They also wouldn't be able to get a prescription for it from a Tennessee doctor. "They must ... have enough supply for medicinal patients. That's not good for the patient, and it's not good for the business".

Justin Thomas reaches semifinals and closes in on No. 1
Bubba Watson defeated Kevin Kisner, 7 and 6, ending even the pretense of drama with a title-clinching birdie on the 12th hole. The win was his second in the last five weeks, and the 11th of his illustrious PGA TOUR career.

In July 2017, Council approved an ordinance to allow businesses pertaining to commercial cultivation, distribution, manufacturing and lab testing of medical cannabis to locate in the city's Industrial Park.

"Our perspective on this is there needs to be some kind of coming together between state and federal law on it", said James Thurston, spokesman for the Ohio Bankers League trade group. It doesn't make sense to have people walking around to do things like pay taxes and make payroll with literally trash bags full of cash.

It also proposes a number of other changes to the state's medical marijuana law, including authorizing a person to serve as a primary caregiver for up to two patients.

Closed-loop systems have been proposed elsewhere, including Colorado, but they've all fizzled due to their apparent ineffectiveness in a marijuana program and surrounding legal issues.

This second phase of licensing will max out the state's allotment of 25 grower/processor permits and 50 dispensary permits, as spelled out in the 2016 Medical Marijuana Act.

So a closed-loop system - which has been proposed in OH at other times in the past - is likely flawed from the very start.

"Looking back, we wish they would have voted on it in the Judiciary Committee meeting on March 7", said Eric Crawford.

In addition, formulations containing up to 3 percent THC - the chemical primarily responsible for the psychoactive effects of recreational marijuana - will be made legal under the new law. "We're going to work with our legislators and our communities, but we're not counting on it", Kadens said.
