Weed tax on the horizon: Colorado is set to become the first state in the nation to collect tax revenue from marijuana sales. Both chambers of the state legislature have passed legislation that would tax the substance—which is legal for recreational use in the state—and Governor John Hickenlooper is expected to sign it.  Asked what how the federal government will respond should the legislation take effect, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s office in Colorado said that the DOJ “is taking into consideration all aspects of this issue.” (Photo: Reuters) source

pewresearch:

Nearly half (48%) of all adults have tried marijuana, including 57% of Millennials. In the past year, 12% of Americans have used marijuana either for a medical issue or recreationally, or both. Age makes a difference: 27% of those under 30 say they have used marijuana in the past year, three times the percentage in any other age category.

To whatever extent cannabis use among adults still holds a level of stigma or taboo thanks to its illegal nature, by the numbers it’s clearly something of an open secret. Support for legalizing it has now reached majority levels, and this isn’t something to be laughed off with some lame joke about Cheetos — countless thousands of Americans now languish in prison for non-violent use.

We knew it was too good to be true. Why didn’t Tancredo realize when he made the bet, or when he agreed to uphold it several days ago, that smoking weed would set a bad example for his grandchildren? source

L.A. City Council places ban on medical marijuana dispensaries
In a unanimous vote on Tuesday, the L.A. City Council voted to end the era of medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. Letters demanding an immediate end to all operations will be sent to all 762 registered dispensaries in Los Angeles; however, some older dispensaries may be allowed to re-open at a later date thanks to a “grandfather clause” proposal which also passed a vote. Many activists have pledged to fight the new measure — both in court and with ballot initiatives if necessary — including the California branch of Americans for Safe Access. So, do you think this was the right move? (Photo via Dank Depot) source

Connecticut passes bill to legalize medicinal marijuana
With the state’s Democratic governor expected to sign the bill into law, Connecticut would become the 16th of 50 U.S. states to embrace marijuana as an option for people seeking medical relief, though in Connecticut they’ve approached it with tightened regulation to try to avoid abuse of the system, and trouble with the federal government. In particular, all patients must register with the Department of Consumer Protection in order to receive the drug, which is used for a variety of ailments, glaucoma, cancer and multiple sclerosis being prominent examples.
