With marijuana legalization, green rush is on in D.C.

greenrush-coming-to-wa-dcAs Thursday dawns on the nation’s capital, marijuana will be a legal intoxicant, though Washington will not be Amsterdam, or even Denver. There will be no pot shops, no open-air smoking, but at least for the moment, the District — for once in its decades-long struggle for the right to govern itself — has gotten its way, and a green rush is on.
Despite a last-hours intervention by the Republican chairman of the House committee that handles D.C. affairs, Mayor Muriel E. Bowser and D.C. Council members said Wednesday that they would not back down from implementing the will of the 70 percent of city voters who approved legalization in November.
Now, from private residences where Washingtonians may grow, possess and use small amounts of the drug to shops where budding entrepreneurs plan to sell accessories for cultivating marijuana plants, marijuana will quickly become a more overt part of the capital’s culture.
For advocates of legalization, the idea that weed can be legal in Washington is a breakthrough that will accelerate a similar embrace of the mind-altering plant in much of the nation. At least five states are moving toward legalization votes next year.
“What you’re seeing here is the end of marijuana prohibition, a change in attitudes and a real shift in law enforcement — a huge step forward in the national fight for legalization,” said Michael Collins, national policy manager for the Drug Policy Alliance.
“The nation’s capital has an exaggerated impact,” said Keith Stroup, legal counsel at NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). “If Washington, D.C., can legalize marijuana and the sky doesn’t fall, things will get a lot easier in these other states.”
On the streets of the city, the big change actually took place in July, when the District decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana, meaning that someone caught with a joint or two faced a ticket rather than an arrest, handcuffs and a trip to court.

White Fire OG - Indica

Widely regarded as the most potent of the OG strains, Fire OG Kush delivers some of the most frosted buds known to the medical marijuana community. Pristinely crossed with the original OG Kush strain and the F2 hybrid, San Fernando Valley OG Kush, Raskals OG has truly gifted the MMJ industry with one of the best medicinal strains around. These buds look like snow-covered mountains with dancing flames of wildfire sparsely strewn about the foliage.


This constantly happens ; )

Maryland Poll: Majority Support For Marijuana Legalization, Marijuana Safer Than Sugar

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, February, 26th 2015 by THCFinder
maryland-marijuana-pollMaryland is high on my list of states that are next to legalize marijuana. Maryland has a great shot of being the first state in America to legalize marijuana via a legislative action, as opposed to via the initiative process. Efforts in Maryland got a boost this week from a poll which found that a majority of Marylanders support marijuana legalization. The poll also found that Marylanders consider marijuana to be safer than sugar. Per Goucher.Edu:
Fifty-two percent of Marylanders support making the use of marijuana legal in Maryland; 44 percent oppose.
When asked which substance is the most harmful to a person’s overall health, 46 percent say tobacco is the most harmful, followed by alcohol (22 percent), and sugar (13 percent). Eight percent think marijuana is more harmful to a person’s overall health than tobacco, alcohol, or sugar.
Fifty-five percent disagree that marijuana is a “gateway drug”—i.e., it leads to the use of hard drugs; 43 percent of respondents agree.
I like the questions that the poll asked. You always see polls dealing with marijuana legalization, but it’s fairly rare to see followup questions being asked. I’m kind of disappointed that only 55% of poll participants disagree with the gateway drug theory. However, it’s still a clear majority, and I think that number could rise as activists in Maryland continue to educate the public.

Cherry factory hides marijuana-growing operation; owner commits suicide

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, February, 26th 2015 by THCFinder
cherry-factory-hides-marijuana-grow-operationInvestigators in New York are looking for answers after a large marijuana-growing operation was discovered in a maraschino cherry factory in Brooklyn, leading its longtime owner to commit suicide while locked in a bathroom at the facility.
Arthur Mondella, 57, whose family had operated Dell's Maraschino Cherries since 1948, reportedly yelled "Take care of my kids!" to his sister after locking himself in a bathroom before taking his own life, reports the New York Daily News. He shot himself just as investigators discovered the pot-growing operation in the factory.
The incident has brought cherry production to a halt at the facility and investigators are now checking whether Mondella had connections to organized crime, according to the New York Post.
"That's why he shot himself. He knew the mob would kill him," a law enforcement source tells the Post. "Why else would you shoot yourself over 100 pounds of weed? It was the multimillion operation he lost."
According to the New York Times, Dell's was one of the largest producers of maraschino cherries in the country. It was housed in a brick building with no markings on the outside.
But the Times reports there were things that made the building unusual: Mondella had a fleet of vehicles in a garage, including a Porsche, Rolls-Royce, a Harley-Davidson and a Mercedes. There were security cameras on the building's corners and razor wire barricading the roof.
An investigator tells the Times it appears the cherry plant's employees were unaware of the marijuana-growing operations. Officials arrived at about 8 a.m. Tuesday to investigate alleged pollution in the waters near the cherry plant, the Daily News reports.
While there for about five hours, investigators found a faint smell of marijuana. A false wall hid the entrance to the area where the pot was grown, the Post reports.
The hidden area contained hundreds of marijuana plants and looked "extremely professional" and very expensive, a source tells the Post. About $200,000 in cash was found in a safe.
Pat Murano, 41, who has lived next door to the factory since 2005, tells the Times that it's difficult to keep a secret in the neighborhood where the factory was located ... "except this one."
He said he found the extensive security measures at the factory curious.
"I didn't think he was protecting the Dye No. 7 or his equipment," he said.
