The 'Marijuana Show' gives ganjapreneurs another chance in the Mile High City

DENVER -- The Shark Tank for Ganjapreneurs is rolling in Denver this weekend, giving contestants a chance to pitch cannabis ideas to accredited investors for a chance to win more than $10 million in investment capital.

“What a chance this is for anyone with an idea to take non-THC cannabis products to the next level,” said Wendy Robbins one of the co-inventor of the show. We have contestants who have come from all over the world to try out… one is only 10 years old!”

Then there is the man from Key West, Florida who has taken Henry Ford’s idea for a hemp car that runs on plant material and made the Renewal Sports Car.

“This car will improve our carbon footprint for sure,” said Bruce Dietzen, who drove his car to Mile High from Margaritaville. Renewsportcars.com

Too Soon to Tell What Impact Marijuana Bills May Have

A legislative package signed into law Friday by the governor establishes a regulatory framework for the statewide cultivation, transportation and sale of medical marijuana, providing exemptions and sanctions that Riverside County officials were busy analyzing to determine their impact.

“The Office of County Counsel has all the content, and we’re waiting to hear back from them on what this could mean,” Supervisor Kevin Jeffries told City News Service. “I have felt for a number of years that the state Legislature failed to address significant issues concerning medical marijuana across California. It might be a good thing to establish a framework that all counties can work within.”

If Recreational Marijuana Can't Succeed in Oregon, Then the Industry Could Be Doomed

Oregon has clear advantages that make it the perfect test state for the recreational marijuana movement. However, that still doesn't guarantee that marijuana businesses will succeed.

Lately it seems as if the marijuana movement reaches a new milestone just about every week. Last week it was Oregon officially becoming the third state in the country to allow adults ages 21 and up to purchase marijuana for recreational use. Alaska also legalized recreational marijuana sales in the November 2014 election, but it hasn't given legal shops the OK to begin selling the drug as of yet.

Legal marijuana plants causing a stink in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A legal marijuana grow in a Washington backyard is causing a stink for a Vancouver woman.

"It comes in through our windows. It's so strong, like a thousand skunks, so strong we can't even go out on our own patios. We can't even use our own backyards," Sally Wray said, referring to her neighbor's backyard on NE 16th Street.

The neighbor, Derryl Boone, has a medical license to grow pot. Some of his 15 plants have grown nearly as tall as his home.

Wray and other neighbors have complained to police, city code enforcement officers, city council members and the SW Washington Clean Air Agency about the smell of Boone's plants.

Poll: Pa. split on legalizing marijuana for recreational use

A whopping 92 percent of women support medical marijuana compared with just 7 percent who are opposed. But only 43 percent of women surveyed said they back full legalization. For men, 87 percent supported use of medical marijuana if prescribed by a doctor while 52 percent said they were in favor of allowing adults to legally possess small amounts of the drug for "personal use."

Overall Pa. voters are split on full legalization – 49 percent are against it while 47 percent are for it – though unsurprisingly, two-thirds of voters 18-34 years old support recreational use of small amounts of marijuana.

Only 15 percent of respondents said they would probably or definitely use marijuana if it was legalized.

Jamaica to import cannabis - Bureau of Standards wants seeds to help guide regulatory framework

Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ) has sought permission from the Government to import some 100 ganja seeds for a pilot project that is expected to guide the development of a regulatory framework for the country's emerging medical marijuana industry.

Amid reports that scores of local and overseas players are already lining up for a share of the fledgling industry, government insiders insist that it was important for Jamaica's regulatory mechanism to be able to stand up to international scrutiny.

"There are many, many players waiting, but of course, people want to see how we manage it," one insider said recently.

The source, however, made it clear that "it is not going to be a free-for-all in Jamaica".
