As we have seen over the last few years, a large number of American states have relaxed marijuana laws to fit in with modern medical and cultural opinion. In California for example, cannabis is legal pursuant to Proposition 215 in 1996 and Senate Bill 420. The importance of the 420 Bill was highlighted this year on the 20th April which has been christened “International Cannabis Day”, and the popularity of this event gets larger each year.
So how did California come to be one of the most relaxed states with regards to legislation of marijuana?
Well, California was actually the first state to establish a medicinal marijuana program. It came into force from Proposition 215 in 1996 and Senate Bill 420 in 2003. Prop. 215, also more commonly known as the Compassionate Use Act, was approved with a convincing 55% majority, allowing people with such terrible diseases as cancer, HIV and chronic pain borne illnesses the legal right to grow or obtain marijuana for medicinal purposes when prescribed by the patient’s doctor. The Medical Marijuana Protection Act (Senate Bill 420), came into law by the persistence and dedication of Governor Gray Davis. The basis of this act was the introduction of a unique identification card system for medical marijuana patients to ensure only those with the conditions covered by the act were the only individuals to gain possession of the medicinal marijuana.
With the relaxation of cannabis laws, many new companies have been born to cater for the needs of its users. For example, we’ve seen many dispensaries and growers make millions of dollars for being the first to market. But there are also some other companies who sell accessories who have enjoyed great success such as those selling marijuana grinders. And there is one company in particular — Golden Gate Grinders — who have seen tremendous growth over the last few years.
Golden Gate grinders are currently the top rated grinder in the “food grinder and mill” category of Amazon, which caters for weed grinders such as this. Golden Gate Grinders also gets one of the best grinder for weed reviews from industry leading review website BestGrinderGuide.com, who said the Golden Gate Grinder was the best grinder for cannabis, aswell as being the best grinder for kief. Quite a glowing recommendation!
California has always lead the way on cannabis legislation, and Golden Gate Grinders born out of the state seem to be leading the way in terms of creating a grinder for the market which ticks all the boxes.
We spoke to the owner of the ever expanding company and he was excited to be in the early stages of launching a wider range of Golden Gate Grinders to cater for the brand’s fanatical fans. “We’ve had a tremendous reaction to our grinder and our success is reflected in the fact of the success of those patients using marijuana to fight their terrible illnesses, and I’m delighted we are playing a small part in this by offering an excellent quality marijuana grinder to the market”.
As medicinal marijuana use continues to grow and as patients feel the positive effects of its, companies such as Golden Gate Grinders will also continue to grow and flourish as a result.
