Idaho Cannabis Campaign Gets Green Light to Collect Signatures

Idaho just gave the OK to a group hoping to add medical cannabis legalization to the ballot for 2022. Those in support of the Idaho Medical Marijuana Act are now cleared to collect signatures.  Now, the real work of gathering signatures begins. In order to make the ballot, the act needs signatures from 6 percent of those who voted in the previous election and six percent of voters from half the state’s counties. In total, that will be about 68,000 signatures.  However, in addition to landing this number of signatures, there could still be challenges if the measure gets to […]

Idaho Senate Advances Proposal To Constitutionally Ban Cannabis In The State

A proposal to constitutionally ban marijuana in Idaho narrowly passed out of the state Senate on Wednesday, setting the stage for legislators in the state House to decide. The proposed amendment to the state’s constitution passed by a vote of 24-11, barely eclipsing the two-thirds threshold necessary for such a proposal.

Idaho Senator Pushes Back on Legalization with Proposed Psychoactive Drug Ban

Despite the fact that legal cannabis is shaping the nation, one senator in Idaho is still trying to push back against possible legalization in his state by proposing a constitutional ban at the state level on psychoactive drugs.  The amendment, proposed by Senator C. Scott Grow, a Republican based in Eagle, would officially amend the constitution, making it more difficult for advocates to legalize at the state level.   This amendment would ban “the production, manufacture, transportation, sale, delivery, dispensing, distribution, possession, or use of a psychoactive drug.” The only exceptions would be drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration.  […]

Idaho’s 2020 Weed Laws. Yup, it’s Still Illegal

Source: Shutterstock Idaho lacks a single piece of legislation acknowledging the medical value of cannabis, making it the only state in the country with total cannabis prohibition. In addition to denying patients access to medical marijuana and farmers’ entrance into the burgeoning American hemp industry, Idaho’s cannabis prohibition disproportionately targets Black Idahoans.  The Idaho Office of Drug Policy Views Cannabis as a Threat to Public Health   Idaho law defines marijuana as “the dried leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant.” Because of its classification as a Schedule I controlled substance under Idaho law, it […]

Trichomes are Everything: Ultra Trimmer

What did you and your partners do before starting Ultra Trimmer? I manufactured a pest control device for burrowing animals called Varmitgetter and have been doing pest control at golf courses and farmers fields for more than 20 years.

He told me he was growing medical marijuana and I wanted to get in on it and the […]
