Vancouver Police Department recommends pot shop complaint be dismissed

Anti-pot shop crusader alleges police not enforcing laws against illegal marijuana dispensaries

The Vancouver Police Department has recommended the Vancouver Police Board dismiss a complaint from an anti-pot shop crusader accusing police of failing to shut down the city’s 100 or so illegal marijuana dispensaries.

In a 15-page report that goes before the board Thursday, Deputy Chief Doug LePard provided a detailed analysis of the complaint from Pamela McColl of Smart Approaches to Marijuana Canada and outlined why the majority of dispensaries continue to operate without police interference.

California's Pot Biz "Wild West" May End, Massachusetts Could "Head It Off At The Pass"

Legal marijuana commerce - to some extent a reality in 24 states and the District of Columbia - may be the fastest growing industry in the United States. Regardless of what we think about pot use, these facts beg the question: if voters continue to push for legalization, what is the best way to end prohibition of a popular business activity?

Portland projects 360 new marijuana businesses, over $1 million in revenue from city fees

With $892,500 in estimated annual expenses, the hefty fees proposed on marijuana businesses are meant to offset the city's costs, officials said.

So how many marijuana stores, processors, wholesalers and dispensaries does the city expect? Try 360, according to revised projections.

If the City Council approves the proposed fees, and businesses apply at the expected rates, Portland could bring in over $1 million a year.

Portland already has 132 medical dispensaries registered (120 are operating), and officials estimate 130 of them will file for a new license under proposed city rules. Dispensaries will have to apply for city licenses to continue doing business.

Colorado Attorney General investigates marijuana companies using 'organic'

 Because marijuana is illegal under federal law, and use of the term organic is federally regulated, a licensed cannabis business cannot be certified as organic no matter their practices

Colorado’s attorney general is investigating several marijuana businesses over concerns the word “organic” in their names or advertising might be misleading to consumers.

The office is reviewing complaints from consumers that the “merchants have been misrepresenting their product when they say ‘organic’ or ‘organically grown,'” said Roger Hudson, spokesman for Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman. “We’re looking for information inside those complaints to make a determination on what those next steps are. Is it consumer fraud? Is it criminal?”

Day Without Marijuana Tax Draws Mixed Reactions in Colorado

DENVER — Some called it Christmas for stoners. Others warned of marijuana anarchy.

Marijuana products across Colorado were nearly tax free on Wednesday — a one-time tax break forced by a quirk in the state Constitution. The break knocked away the state’s 10 percent tax on cannabis purchases — which is imposed on top of the existing state sales tax and any municipal taxes — and marijuana shops around the state spent months coordinating their distribution plans, advertising deep discounts in addition to the tax vacation and encouraging customers to start lining up at dawn.

Hungry for hemp: Industry waits for green light

KEY agriculture sector names are lining up to back industrial hemp as a food crop, but advocates say access to the billion-dollar global industry is shrouded in bureaucracy.

Hemp fibre crops were legalised in NSW in 2008, but producers said the lack of legal approval for hemp seeds as food prevents the industry from gaining acceptance as a mainstream broadacre crop.

NSW Agriculture Minister Niall Blair and his Labor counterpart Mick Veitch last week hailed the potential of hemp and the cash bonanza it could bring to the state.

Currently, eating and selling hemp seeds as food is illegal only in Australia and New Zealand, due to fears over interference with drug testing devices, as well as legal and treaty issues.
