Jamaican Growth Forum: Ganja is no silver bullet

Ras Iyah V, president of the Westmoreland Ganja Farmers' Association, says while a well-structured marijuana industry could be a major economic boost to a town like Savanna-la-Mar, ganja alone cannot turn around the fortunes of the town.

"No single industry can solve the problems we have in Savanna-la-Mar, but with an overall agricultural programme, herb is the easiest thing that our people can go into at the moment because we have everything to make this work," the Rastafarian elder said at The Gleaner's Job Creation, Investment and Growth Forum in the Westmoreland capital last week.

A FIELD of harmless hemp was ransacked after Facebook users claimed to have discovered a ten acre patch of wild cannabis in rural Sussex.

Police were called after vandals ripped up the legal plants and tried to smoke them.

Unfilled state regulatory jobs could delay medical marijuana openings in Las Vegas

Dozens of medical marijuana businesses in Las Vegas could face delays in their opening dates. The state isn’t rethinking the law that legalized the growth and sale of cannabis for patients’ use. Rather, it’s having trouble filling bureaucratic posts responsible for signing off on the dispensaries' compliance with that law.

After two recent employee departures, there are currently no inspectors based in Southern Nevada. In the meantime, one based in Northern Nevada has been traveling south when needed. The state is currently working to fill those vacancies.

Members of the medical marijuana industry are raising concerns about the turnover.

Did You Violate Federal & State Law When You Raised Capital?

No your not a white collar criminal, but what many founders do not know is that they may have violated federal and state securities laws through their efforts to raise capital.

Most founders obtain initial financing for their startups by tapping their savings, incurring debt, asking their friends and family for money and approaching professional investors.

Why Hillary Clinton can't just ignore marijuana in 2016

On Thursday, Gallup released a poll showing that 44 percent of Americans have said they've tried marijuana, the largest number the survey has ever recorded. This isn't too far off from what other polls have found (this Pew Research Center poll pegged the number at 49 percent), and given that people are being asked to admit to behavior that is illegal in most places, the true number is almost certainly higher. So we're past the point where most American adults have tried pot, which helps explain why support for legalization has also become a majority position.

SCCC may offer program in marijuana growing

Program eyed to train workers for medical cannabis facility

SCHENECTADY — A medical marijuana program could be coming to Schenectady County Community College this fall.

Fiorello Pharmaceuticals has pledged to provide $100,000 to SCCC if it is one of five contractors chosen by the state Health Department to provide marijuana to patients suffering from certain medical conditions.

The New York City-based company would open a facility in Glenville if it gets a license and is looking to launch a medical cannabis certificate program in Schenectady — the first in the nation, according to Fiorello — as part of a job-training partnership with the two-year college. The college may also help train developmentally disabled people to work at the facility.
