Texas Man Faces Possible Life in Prison For Pot Brownies

A 19-year-old Texas man could be facing the possibility of life in prison for allegedly baking and selling pot brownies.
 
According to police in Round Rock, a city north of Austin, officers found 1.5 pounds of brownies, along with a pound of marijuana, digital scales, $1,675 in cash and several bags of marijuana at Jacob Lavoro's apartment last month.
 
Now, Lavoro faces a first-degree felony and if convicted, the former high school football player with a clean record faces a possible punishment ranging from five years to life behind bars.
 
His father Joe Lavoro called the potential punishment “outrageous.”
 
“Five years to life? I’m sorry, I’m a law-abiding citizen, I’m a conservative, but I’ll be damned,” Joe Lavoro said. “This is wrong. This is damn wrong.”
 
Prosecutors say the charge is so severe because of Lavoro’s brownie recipe. Authorities say he mixed in hash oil, which features a far higher concentration of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. Under Texas law, the hash oil can be treated similarly to far more serious narcotics such as ecstasy.
 
Because the drops of oil were cooked into the brownies, police weighed the entire brownie batch – sugar, flour and butter – and charged him with possessing 1.5 pounds of drugs.
 
Jack Holmes, Lavoro’s defense attorney, believes the charge should be downgraded.
 
“They’ve weighed baked goods in this case,” Holmes said. “It ought to be a misdemeanor.”
 
Lavoro has pleaded not guilty. His father remains upset that prosecutors aren’t backing down.
 
“If he did something wrong, he should be punished, but to the extent that makes sense,” he said. “This is illogical.”
 
Lavoro is due back in court next month.

Grape Ape - Indica

Wide purple leaves cover the Grape Ape marijuana plant, surrounding some of the world's most unique buds. The leaves, stems, stalks and buds are coated with a thick layer of THC crystals and these lovely ladies give off a strong smell of grape. You'll also notice some very nice undertones of skunkiness. The nuggets, when cared for properly, are tight and dense. They are super sticky and make you feel guilty for placing your fat little fingers on them directly.

Minnesota to become 22nd state to legalize medical marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
minnesota-22nd-state-to-legalize-medical-marijuanaIt took years, many false starts and a veto, but Minnesota medical marijuana advocates finally succeeded in getting a bill that’s on track to become law in a matter of days.
 
A broad bipartisan majority of state lawmakers in the Minnesota House of Representatives approved legislation to provide access to medical cannabis to improve the quality of life of Minnesotans with serious medical conditions on Friday. The bill passed by a vote of 89-40.
The Senate passed the same bill earlier Friday by a vote of 46-16. It now heads to Governor Mark Dayton, who says he will sign it into law.
 
The compromise bill, announced Thursday by the Dayton administration, state lawmakers and advocates, addresses the medical community’s desire for medical oversight and for gathering quality information about patients’ health impacts while accommodating the safety and security concerns of the law enforcement community.
 
“This year, Minnesota took an important step toward improving the quality of life of people with serious and terminal medical conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS and seizure disorders,” said Rep. David Bly (DFL-Northfield). “We forged a strong bipartisan compromise that provides relief to suffering children and adults while addressing concerns of law enforcement and the medical community.”
 
Bly believes the bill is a first step and can be improved upon in coming years after there is an opportunity to closely examine the research and outcomes − research, he says, that will help us better understand how and why medical cannabis can benefit patients.
Rice County Sheriff Troy Dunn said that although he was pleased that a compromise was finally reached, he was concerned that there would be too many distributors and about the potential for regulation difficulty.
 
“I like that they’re going to regulate the distributors. I’m also happy that they’re using the liquid extracts and taking the THC out and other things that have side effects,” Dunn said. “I just don’t want us to move too fast and have multiple distributors like Colorado did. I like Minnesota’s way of going about it cautiously. Also, I think it will be difficult to regulate people with a legal prescription who drive under the influence.”

Colorado Food Inspectors Are Cracking Down On Cannabis Edibles

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
mj-edibles-cracked-down-on
Cannabis edibles are harder to regulate than flower in some ways. Flower, if grown correctly, is easy to test for contaminants and potency. Cannabis edibles have more factors to consider. Since edibles also contain some cannabis flower, the issues that revolve around flower are present. But there are additional factors that are involved when creating cannabis edibles.
 
One factor, which is true of cooking/baking anything (cannabis or otherwise), is whether or not the edibles were prepared in a sanitary workspace. Creating the right dose is another thing that is tricky. One thing that a lot of people don’t take into consideration is calculating for food allergies. How does one properly store the edibles? And then there is of course the factor of making the edible appeasing to consumers taste buds.
 
As cannabis edibles continue to grow in availability and popularity, issues surrounding these types of businesses are also on the rise. Colorado food inspectors have been cracking down on cannabis edible companies and distributors that aren’t following the correct procedures. Per the Denver Post:
 
“Food safety inspections of businesses that manufacture and sell marijuana edibles in Denver have found products that should be refrigerated sitting out on shelves and preparation methods insufficient to kill bacteria that can cause serious food-borne illness.
 
The unannounced visits by the Denver Department of Environmental Health have led to three product recalls and the destruction of tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of products.”
 
If you are a cannabis edible company, or are thinking of starting a cannabis edible company, then you are aware that there is a greater need for rules and regulations in this sector of the cannabis industry. Customers want to know that the products they are buying are safe. The general public wants to know that cannabis edible companies are following proper food handling practices. Right now all eyes are on Colorado, and everything has to be done right in order for the industry to spread and flourish inside and outside of Colorado.
