As the dust settles in the weeks following the Presidential Election, Americans are returning to life as usual. Gone are the political ads, debates and polls and most citizens are thankful to that end. However, the leading real estate website, Houses.com is detecting a small yet increasing trend under current in the ocean of politics. There is an amplified interest in the states where medical marijuana can be used without criminal consequences.
The voters in the states of Washington and Colorado have gone a step further and given their blessing to the recreational use of marijuana. Many other states have passed similar legislation that downgrade possession of the drug to the equivalent of running a stop sign. Each state will have different ordinances as to how much you can carry without the fear of facing a judge but, that aside there is a growing trend to legalize the use of medical marijuana in the United States.
The infographic illustrates (in green) the states that have legalized or passed laws allowing either the medical or recreational use of the plant. One eye opener was the increased number of homes for sale searches in New York and Maryland on Houses.com. Several states saw increases in the single digits; the searches in the tiny state of Maryland swelled to a full 14% and a whopping 22% in New York.
There are no hard and fast demographics for these online queries but when most people look for a home they generally have a stable income and the financial means to make the move. Widely distributed studies would lead most to believe it is the teenagers and the early 20s network that use marijuana. For more information, see the recent study by the American Medical Association: http://www.druglibrary.org/Schaffer/hemp/medical/block.htm. Nevertheless, those age groups by and large, don’t have access to the cash reserves needed to make major purchases like a home.
Although the increased traffic is by no means immense yet, the percentages of increases were enough to catch more than a few eyes. Founder and CEO of Houses.com, Richard Swerdlow commented on the recent findings, “The U.S. is traditionally conservative and cautious about the use of marijuana. Looking at the traffic by state breakdown paired with recent legislation on the drug suggests that citizens may want to see that changed.”
The inforgraphic clearly illustrates that the plain states, the Southeastern Seaboard and Southern states, are more conservative in their approaches to marijuana. Many citizens who are in favor of these relaxed measures are predicting it is just a matter of time before all states have some kind of legal verbiage for marijuana and its use.
For more in depth information on this subject read the full article here: http://www.houses.com/Learn/HousingNews/Marijuana-Tolerant-States-Attract-Homebuyers-to-Houses.com. Realtors in these 20+ states may want to keep their eyes on the marijuana legislation in their vicinity. When the topic is brought up in conversation; being prepared to answer client’s questions with an informed and educated voice may be an advantage.

A new era known as “The Green Rush” has arrived in the United States as prohibition has ended for marijuana (also know as weed, cannabis or pot). With the booming multi-million dollar marijuana industry in the United States, countless information sources are releasing marijuana-related news stories, opinions and features on a daily basis. The newest source is USMedicalMarijuana.net which aims to be a reliable source of medical marijuana news and information for people all over the US and around the world.
To date, more than 20 states across the country, as well as in the District of Columbia have ended the prohibition of marijuana for medical purposes. In Colorado and Washington, marijuana has been legalized for both medical use and responsible adult use. At the moment, many other states have some form of marijuana legislation in the books.
November 2013 was a historic month for the US and the world as two states, Colorado and Washington, finally legalized the recreational use of marijuana. The legalization of recreational cannabis in Colorado and Washington thus created a tipping point, and this is very much apparent in the economic changes that have resulted. In Colorado alone, marijuana made $ 1 million in sales on its first day. Washington State, which opened marijuana retail in June, is expected to do the same. Across the country, marijuana and hemp stocks dramatically rose at the start of 2014, following the two states’ legal conversion.
With the latest developments in terms of the legalization of medical marijuana, it is only natural that money has flowed into the industry. As the cannabis industry expands in size and reach, more sectors are getting involved. Firms are recognizing various opportunities along the chain, and have started to participate.
Companies have formed (and continue to form) that not only handle the plant or its product, but also to those that support them. These assisting firms are ancillary businesses, and they include insurance providers, security companies, consultants, and makers of complementary products such as vaporizers.
Also laws will continue to be rewritten over the next few weeks, months and years as the federal and state government figure out the best ways to deal with issues that arise from legalization.
USMedicalMarijuana.net will comb through the numerous materials on the marijuana industry and culture available both online and offline, and will make things more convenient for site visitors by publishing information that is both high quality and relevant.
The site strives to be a trustworthy source of information for individuals interested in the rapidly budding medical marijuana industry in North America. The website contains up-to-date news, as well as essential data and facts for individuals who wish to stay up to date on the latest that is going in this fast paced industry.
It is time to recognize the sweeping changes going in across the United States, as laws on cannabis use will continue to be rewritten over the next few years.
The group behind USMedicalMarijuana.net also owns a portfolio of cannabis related websites including http://www.potgrowing.net (legal pot growing technology & news) ,
http://www.michiganmedicalmarijuana.biz (Michigan cannabis news), http://www.washingtonmedicalmarijuana.biz (Washington cannabis news), http://www.newyorkmedmarijuana.biz (New York cannabis news) & http://www.californiamedicalmarijuana.biz (California cannabis news).

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2014
Cannabis legislation has been all over the news lately. New York just became the twenty-third state to legalize medical cannabis, and a day later, Washington state’s first recreational marijuana dispensaries opened their doors. Activists have successfully brought cannabis-related initiatives to the November ballot in three states and Washington, DC, and many other state legislatures are working on relaxing cannabis regulations.
In light of all these changes, United Patients Group thought it would be a good time to put together a comprehensive list of which states allow medical cannabis, which states allow recreational cannabis, and which states have pending legislation or ballot initiatives in 2014.
“Cannabis laws vary tremendously from state to state, and they have been changing faster than ever in recent years,” says John Malanca, founder and owner of United Patients Group, a trusted advocate and news source for medical cannabis patients. “We wanted to give a comprehensive overview of where each state stands and where each state is headed.”
Colorado and Washington are currently the only two states that regulate and tax recreational cannabis use. Since the law went into effect on January 1, Colorado has collected $ 11 million in tax revenue to fund education. Washington dispensaries opened on Tuesday, and the state is expecting to reap millions in taxes to fund its healthcare plan and the General Fund.
Three state legislatures passed medical marijuana bills this year: Minnesota on May 30, Maryland on June 1, and New York on July 5. This brings the total number of states that allow legal access to medical cannabis up to twenty-three states plus Washington, DC.
“It has been an incredible year for medical cannabis—and the year is only half over!” exclaims Malanca. “As more people become educated about the benefits of cannabis for treating a wide array of serious ailments, it becomes impossible to deny patients access to the medicine that helps them most.”
Even conservative states that have remained staunchly anti-cannabis have started to relax their stance a bit. This year, eleven states approved the use of a non-psychoactive cannabis derivative, CBD oil, to treat childhood epilepsy. After an affecting series of reports by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN about how this oil was the only medicine that worked for a group of children with severe epilepsy, governors in Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin signed bills that allow its use. Legislatures in Missouri and North Carolina have approved similar bills, and the governors are expected to sign them soon.
“We applaud these states for recognizing that these children deserve access to medicine that makes an incredible difference to their seizures. We want to point out, however, that many parents find medicine that has more THC in it to be even more effective,” notes Malanca. “And while CBD oil helps with epilepsy, different strains and extracts of cannabis are effective at treating other diseases—including cancer, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, depression, and many others. All patients in these states deserve full access to medical cannabis.”
Looking to the rest of 2014, United Patients Group sees promising activity all over the country. This November, voters in Alaska, DC, and Oregon will have the opportunity to legalize recreational cannabis, which will be regulated and taxed similarly to Colorado and Washington. Voters in Florida will have the opportunity to legalize medical cannabis.
State legislatures are working on cannabis laws, too. This session, many states have considered or are considering legalizing medical marijuana, treating cannabis like alcohol, reducing penalties for marijuana possession, and allowing industrial hemp.
Malanca concludes, “It’s heartening to see that so many states are taking steps to change their unjust cannabis laws, but we still have a lot of work to do to make sure that all Americans can have safe, legal access to the medicine they need.”
UnitedPatientsGroup.com is a discreet, safe, and professional online medical cannabis information resource for prospective and current patients, caregivers, and medicinal cannabis industry professionals.
While most online medical marijuana sites cater to patients already familiar with medical marijuana, the UnitedPatientsGroup.com website is a comprehensive and easy-to-use information source for people of all ages and experience levels, from novice medical cannabis users to experienced industry professionals. The site’s News, Resource, and Blog pages introduce new patients to the ins and outs of medical marijuana healthcare, while helping experienced providers stay abreast of the latest developments in THC and CBD therapies.
A complimentary Five Star-rated United Patients Group medical marijuana app is available on the iTunes app store for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and any iPad.
