Colorado puts annual marijuana demand at 130 tonnes

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 09:59
By Daniel Wallis DENVER (Reuters) - Total marijuana demand in Colorado, where the nation's first recreational pot shops opened in January, is estimated at 130 tonnes this year, a study for the state's revenue authority said on Wednesday. A day after Washington became only the second state to allow recreational sales of the drug to adults, the report said the projected demand in Colorado was much higher than anticipated. "The primary difference is caused by much heavier dosage amounts consumed by the state's 'heavy user' population – those who consume marijuana on a daily basis," said the report, prepared for the Colorado Department of Revenue. It said tax figures showed that the retail supply of marijuana was growing in the state, while supply via medical marijuana dispensaries had remained relatively constant.

Georgia man's death sentence commuted a day before scheduled execution

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 09:53
By David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - The day before he was due to die by lethal injection, a man on Georgia's death row was granted clemency and his sentence commuted to life without parole on Wednesday by the state Board of Pardons and Paroles. Tommy Lee Waldrip, 68, was due to be executed on Thursday evening for the 1991 shooting death of a man who had been scheduled to testify against his son in an armed robbery trial. It was the fifth death sentence commuted by the Parole Board since 2002, and the first since April 2012. Age could have been a factor in the decision as Waldrip would have been the oldest person to be executed in Georgia since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976.
