Boston Do You Love Weed? Learn To Grow A Medical Marijuana Business

 

Have you ever wanted to get involved in the medical marijuana industry, but just weren’t sure how to go about it? Well the good people over at Cannabis Career Institute are headed to the Boston area on January 5th, 2013 — at the Hilton, right next to Logan Airport. The seminar hosted by Cannajobs will offer pro-pot people, along the on the Eastern seaboard, their first peek into the dank and sticky world of marketing a marijuana business, creating a progressive marijuana business models and navigating the complex corporation and tax structures. This Boston marijuana seminar will concentrate on providing an easy to follow, step by step guide – from seed germination, to cultivation, to harvest. Everything an   enthusiastic pot-ential marijuana business person should know before they grow.

 

These seminars emphasis is not only on how to start your own medical marijuana business, but how to grow medical marijuana commercially and privately. Creating edibles and concentrates for patients is also covered. Those who may not want to start their own business will learn how to become a patient, how to qualify for a “bud tending” position, how to identify strains and will receive a Certificate of Completion afterward which will help them gain employment in the field.

 

A plan of action is created specifically for the attendee: whether it is a grow operation, a dispensary, a delivery service for homebound and terminally ill patients, or an edibles kitchen, CCI will help them right then and there by introducing them to the people they need to do the things they can’t do themselves (doctors, lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, website designers, etc.) customizing a step-by-step checklist for them based on their personal timeline and budget.

 

The founder of CCI — Robert Calkin, and medical marijuana jobs site Cannajobs.com, has seen his share of setbacks in the medical marijuana industry. For more than 30 years, he has battled the overwhelming politics involved with creating and growing medical marijuana businesses. Today he remains confident that the curent political smoke will clear, making room for more employment opportunities and economic growth.

 

“For every step forward we take, we are faced with challenges that force us two steps back. Every movement had set backs,” said Calkin. “People need medical marijuana and there are hundreds of thousands of careers to be made out of this industry. No matter what your profession is, there is a place for you.”

 

Earlier this year, Calkin helped form the Med Can Research Group, made up of scientists, anthropologists, journalists and ethnographers studying the economic and social impact medical marijuana dispensaries have on their communities.

 

“The impact that dispensaries have on local businesses, residents, markets and public safety has not been fully documented, so the policies that govern them continue to be based on ideological arguments, subjective criteria, and hypotheticals, rather than on empirical evidence,” said Calkin. “The Med Can Research Group hopes to dispel any myths about this topic with our research efforts.”

 

Calkin’s storied legacy in the cannabis industry began in 1976 when he and fellow activists staged a “smoke in” in The Mall in Washington, DC , where so many other cultural revolutions have broken ground. It was that act of protest that sparked Calkin’s lifelong mission to bring cannabis away from black market trade and into a mainstream industry.

 

As one of the original members of the American Hemp Council in 1988 with Chris Conrad and Jack Herer, Calkin’s activism and entrepreneurial spirit led him to begin creating jobs in the medical marijuana industry. Also in 1988, he opened his own delivery service that is still operating today; Green Dot LA.

 

Since then, he has gone on to become the face of medical marijuana jobs. He founded the Cannabis Career Institute in 2009 and Cannabis State University in 2010. He has also written curriculums for Oakland’s Oaksterdam University, which was the basis for his 2008 cannabis entrepreneurship bible “Starting Your Own Medical Marijuana Delivery Service: The Mobile Caregiver’s Handbook.”

 

In 2011, Calkin created the industry’s leading job listing and business development resource Cannajobs.com, the most comprehensive online source for news and information relating to the medical marijuana industry.

 

“I have helped create and grow literally hundreds of medical marijuana businesses legally,” said Calkin. “I have the knowledge and skills required to do this and my goal is to spread to word to make as many businesses legitimate as possible.”

 

Calkin will be giving these Boston seminars which provide a pathway for those interested in pursuing a cannabis business career. The first is held Jan 5th from 9am to 7 PM and if those interested can’t make that date, a repeat session will be held March 9th.

Young, Smart, And Pro Marijuana Legalization: Who Is Gavin Newsom?

CA Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom Speaks Up For Pot!

 

California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is just the latest high-powered politician calling for a more common sense approach to America’s drug problems and the outright legalization of marijuana. Adorning the front page of today’s New York Times, the chronic story of cannabis winning the West, in which Newsom clearly states he passionate belief that the current marijuana prohibition is extremely counterproductive and pronounced his support for making pot legal. Gavin, is currently accepted as being one of the leading candidates for California’s highly anticipated governor race gearing up for  2016, commented, “These laws just don’t make sense anymore,” so “it’s time for politicians to come out of the closet on this.”

Mr. Newsom first hit the national stage when, back in late 2004, as the new kid on the block in San Francisco politics. He issued a bold command to San Francisco’s county clerk, license and allow same-sex couples to be married, regardless of any federal opposition.

“Even as public support for legalizing marijuana and marriage equality have both increased dramatically over the past seven years, with the country now roughly split on both issues, senior elected officials have shied from speaking out in favor of the former,” noted Ethan Nadelmann, from the Drug Policy Alliance.  “Gavin Newsom’s leadership and willingness to speak out on this important issue, similar to the way he treated marriage equality – is critical.”

Newsom is just the latest to hop on board the marijuana legalization bandwagon. A rapidly growing cluster of frustrated ex politicians and current policymakers, who have come together to speak out in support of marijuana legalization, and ending the war on drugs over the past year.

In Thursday’s New York Times, the Drug Policy Alliance ran a full-page ad that thanks voters in Colorado and Washington and emphasizes the growing support for drug policy reform among leaders from across the political spectrum.

This year, President Bill Clinton joined several other former presidents in sharply criticizing the war on drugs in the just-released documentary Breaking the Taboo. Meanwhile, two U.S. governors from opposite sides of the aisle who are often mentioned as 2016 presidential candidates – New York’s Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey’s Chris Christie – have embraced varying degrees of drug policy reform. Gov. Christie broke ranks with fellow Republicans by calling the drug war a failure, while Gov. Cuomo committed to ending New York’s racially discriminatory marijuana arrest crusade. Even strange bedfellows like evangelical leader Pat Robertson and former President Jimmy Carter spoke out in support of legally regulating marijuana this year. In Latin America, presidents such as Juan Manuel Santos (Colombia), Otto Pérez Molina (Guatemala), and José Mujica (Uruguay) are calling for alternatives to prohibition. source

Gavin’s remarks come on the heels of President Obama’s interview with Barbara Walters on ABC’s 20/20, which was the presidents first opportunity to comment on the wave of marijuana legalization sweeping the nation – the president famously framed the argument as a clash between state and federal laws. During his interview on 20/20 the president went on to state that, people who use marijuana in states that have legalized pot should not be a “top priority” for the underfunded DOJ.

Yuba County California: Yuba County California: Most Liberal Medical Marijuana Grow Regulations In The Stateost Liberal Medical Marijuana Regulations In The State

The Yuba County Growers Association – President Sam McConnell proclaimed – “We’ve made history”.

 

 

One of the most liberal medical marijuana cultivation measure in California easily won approval from the Yuba County Supervisors Tuesday by a slamdunk  4-1 vote.

 

The Yuba County Growers Association – President Sam McConnell proclaimed – “We’ve made history”.

 

Now with these ordinances in place, Mr. McConnell hopes every other county in California can Yuba County California: Most Liberal Medical Marijuana Grow Regulations In The Statenow utilize these well thought out cultivation ordinances, using them as a model. Which when first purposed was promptly jeered during last April’s Board of Supervisors meeting. The argument was that the cultivation regulation were far too limiting for medicinal cannabis cultivators.

 

McConnell is quite pleased with the outcome of the new measure “Everybody is able to do what they need to.”

 

Attorney Jeff Lake, representing the local Yuba County marijuana growers Association, noted that the modified ordinance moves away from sq. footage limits for cultivating medicinal pot.  Rather, opting for the more logical marijuana plant count. As it currently stands individual medical marijuana patients can cultivate to 18 plants on less than 1 acre of land.  Should an individual patient seek the ability to cultivate up to 99 plants, his grow would need to be located on a parcel of greater than 2 acres.

 

Lake filed a legal challenge in July to the original county measure for groups including the Old Crow Farm Collective and Deja Vu Collective, along with Yuba Growers. He’d said the ordinance adopted in April represented a “de facto ban on medical marijuana collectives.”

 

The ordinance adopted Tuesday allows such collectives, he said.

 

“Before it was impossible,” Lake said. “It’s feasible now.” Loma Rica resident Sandra Eden, 50, a medical marijuana grower attended the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesdsay.

 

The new ordinance removes the potential misdemeanor provision for busted cultivators and instead permits reasonable penalties, giving Yuba County the power to eradicate any found growing marijuana that doesn’t follow cultivation guidelines. Lake has provided ample notice to the local marijuana growing populace. Pointing out the new ordinance provides them with sufficient time to comply -or appeal any future county decision that might precede any potential marijuana removal.

 

“It’s wonderful,” Eden said of the approval. “I’m impressed that they took the time to listen to the people.” County Supervisor Roger Abe cast the lone no vote. He said he wanted to meet in closed session with the attorney representing Yuba County to further discuss the ordinance and take up the medical marijuana measure Dec. 18. source

 

The Yuba County growers Association’s Attorney said the new ordinance will become law after the 2nd reading by Yuba County Supervisors at their next meeting. Then effective 30 days later.

Rated by quantity of grams offered, fundamental essentials 25 most widely used medicinal marijuana strains for March.

Abstract

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub.3, and COCH.sub.3. ##STR1##
