Colorado Cannabis Taxes off the Scale

February 26th, 2014 | By

Colorado’s recreational cannabis market has far exceeded people’s wildest dreams. Instead of the estimated $68 million in taxes it was expected to generate, new estimates put this amount at around $117 million per year.

Exact figures from January are to be released later this month. This amount included taxes from medical cannabis which is only taxed at a much lower rate of 2.9%.

The money will be used for various purposes including public health and awareness campaigns including $45 million on preventing youth’s from smoking weed. How you actually achieve that I would love to know. Other money may go into substance abuse treatment centers.

These huge figures do not include an extra 15% cannabis excise tax levied on all sales – of which an estimated $40 million will be used in the construction of new schools.

“Voters and state lawmakers around the country are watching how this system unfolds in Colorado, and the prospect of generating significant revenue while eliminating the underground marijuana market is increasingly appealing”

said Tvert from the Marijuana Policy Project.

It’s time to stop locking up cannabis users

So Obama says that weed is less dangerous than alcohol. Uh-huh. So then, don’t we need to take a long hard look at what is going on?

In the US and UK and the rest of the world, we are still knocking people’s doors down for growing something that according to the president of the United States is less harmful than alcohol.

Yet our countries are flooded with alcohol, brands for every moment, and it’s advertised to children for fuck’s sake. What are we doing? It kills thousands ever year in the UK and costs the NHS over £20bn.

British women lead the way here. Would it really be a bad thing if more British women got stoned instead of pissed?

How can any right minded human being defend locking people up for growing this medicine? It is a complete and utter abomination of our basic human rights. It is barbaric, ignorant and utterly wrong.

What is it going to take for change in the UK?

Has democracy completely and utterly left the building?

We are criminalising our friends, our children, our families for no good reason.  Well actually, there is a reason and that is the greed of others. That is why we are sending people to prison. So pharmaceutical companies can sell you their shit, which in many cases will kill you.

Cannabis has killed nobody and can treat cancer, Parkinson’s diease, Dravet’s syndrome, Crohn’s and a hell of a lot more. Can you see what has been going on here?

We have been ripped off, done over by the powers that be. They brainwashed many of us.  The most powerful medicine on the planet has been hidden away from us for decades. A policy that has cost an indeterminably large amount of people their lives or totally unnecessarily suffering. And they still do this to us, today, despite the fact that the plant is less toxic than ten potatoes. (And that’s according to the DEA.)

Not only that. To add insult to injury, some police forces have been using the marijuana plant to steal from people. California alone took in $181.4 million in revenue from seized property and money in marijuana cases from 2002 to 2012, followed by New York at $101.3 million.

It’s time to take back what is ours. I don’t need to repeat how ridiculous it is to make a plant illegal. This is our medicine and we are entitled to use it.  Anybody restricting this access can only be described as evil, maybe genocidal. Even if they are only ‘carrying out orders from above’.  This is no excuse.  The persecution has got to stop. It’s time to end this war on people before any more damage is done.

It’s OK to Fly Into The UK with Cannabis!

Check out the Daily Telegraph. Since appearing about Stanstead the story has also appeared for Manchester too! So it seems to be a UK wide policy.

A glimmer of hope perhaps as news comes out that if you fly into the UK with a small amount of drugs on your person, you should not be arrested.

How incredibly civil! To a point. They’ll still take your weed if they find it, but you can ‘have a go’ at travelling with weed without fear of being locked up

This is music to the ears of many of my friends. Some who ‘would rather be caught with than without’ so blatantly ignore laws and take cannabis with them wherever they go.  I salute them. And I salute the Spanish police’s recent advice in this matter too.

Here come the cannabis haters

A young woman tragically died recently. What is more tragic is that somehow, her unexpected death has been blamed on cannabis toxicity – something which has never happened before in human history.

It seems that reefer madness is alive and well in the UK.

I could be wrong, but it would not surprise me at all if ‘big alcohol’ are not somehow behind this story.

It is disgusting how this woman’s death is being used by the media for political gain. What a surprise that only weeks after so much positive press about cannabis appeared, something completely negative like this hits the press.

Absolutely terrible.

How must her poor family feel now as arguments arise about what actually happened to their daughter.

Steve over at Tokesignals has put together a sensible response, which quotes experts from across the US. Clearly what is going on here is some kind of media spin.

“In 40 years I have never come across deaths from cannabis alone,”

said David Raynes of the National Drug Prevention Alliance.

 “One doctor’s note should not take precedence over decades of research demonstrating it is impossible to die from a marijuana overdose,”

 said Mason Tvert, communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project.

“The fact that this is ‘news’ is telling, as it’s only novel because there is no significant evidence that it has ever happened before. That raises a lot of questions about its validity and the doctor’s competence.”

“According to all available studies, there has never been a death linked directly to cannabis use in human history,”

says Morgan Fox, MPP’s communications manager.

“We can blame cannabis prohibition and the stigma attached to the study of the plant’s effects for the relative ignorance of physicians when it comes to cannabis and the endocannabinoid system”

“The pathologist involved really needs to do more research on the subject instead of brushing off the cause of this young woman’s death on the first available explanation”

 “Her family and the general public deserve better.”

And there’s more.

“It is highly unlikely that Gemma Moss died from smoking marijuana”

 said Lisa Roche-Kuprian, RN, CCRC, CRNI. She continues:

“It is my professional opinion that additional toxicology testing and a full autopsy be performed to rule out underlying medical conditions before placing blame on marijuana as a cause of death.”

There was some level headed coverage from the New York Daily. Well done to them.

This is one of the problems there is with the British media. They are allowed to do what the hell they like. Facts do not come into it.  Lives are ruined and ignorance spread because of what these papers get away with day in and day out.

A recent enquiry into the British press by Lord Leveson was ignored by Cameron, a very untrustworthy man with a penchant for victimising the poor and disabled.
