Uruguay: A Wave of Robberies Reported by Cannabis Clubs

Cannabis Growers Federation of Uruguay (Fenac-Uruguay) made its concern about incidents and security issues that are suffering from thefts and robberies to keep marijuana plants public. "We talked specifically the wave of insecurity that come to be targeted given the proximity of our crops, and the consequent increase of the phenomenon called 'cogollleros'," says a statement from the Federation.

For Rey, the announcement that Tabaré Vázquez said there was no rush to sell cannabis in pharmacies, has a direct impact with security problems faced by growers.

"If you steal flowers and plants it is because some people buy them. The first thing to do is stop buying plants irregularly. The delay in sales at pharmacies is fundamental.

Florida recreational cannabis initiative?

The Florida Cannabis Action Network is now developing a 2016 voter initiative to legalize marijuana, based on the likelihood that the Florida Legislature will be unwilling to create a comprehensive medical-only program in coming weeks.

That could mean that there is both a medical marijuana amendment and an adult-use amendment on the Florida ballot during the presidential election-year ballot.

Unlike two recently filed but restrictive medical marijuana legislative bills and unlike the revised medical marijuana amendment possibly headed for the November 2016 ballot, the proposed Florida-Can amendment would open use of the plant.

Canada - Mississauga set to introduce new medical marijuana rules

Mississauga hopes to become one of the first municipalities in Canada to pass specific bylaws governing medical marijuana grow-ops.

City council is set to vote Wednesday on legislation that would require grow-ops to follow certain regulations in terms of odour and safety and be regularly inspected. Currently, the federal government dictates where grow-ops can set up and what features the facilities need.

The medical marijuana industry is worth billions and is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years.

Mississauga Coun. Ron Starr said the goal is get some control over grow-ops and make them blend into the community better.

"If you have one of these beside you in an industrial building you'll not even know it’s there," Starr said.

Weed 101: Legalized pot gets Ohio State class of its own

Professor Douglas Berman teaches a class about marijuana, so he has heard the jokes. He even allows a little pot humor in the classroom. But he isn’t especially fond of the nickname his class has picked up:

Weed 101.

“It’s a lot more than that,” Berman said about his class at Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law.

Flippant attitudes toward the marijuana debate are in part what inspired him to start teaching “ Marijuana Law, Policy and Reform,” which aims to cut through claims on both sides of the marijuana debate.
