Jeff Sessions Could Use Federal Law to Prosecute Legal Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON, D.C - On December 8, the deadline for Congress to decide if their federal funding bill will include the Rohrabacher-Farr Act will arrive. The government’s bill provides funding for the subsequent fiscal year, and the Rohrabacher-Farr Act is a law that prevents the Department of Justice from prosecuting legal state medical marijuana cases with federal money.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced today that he met with other U.S. Department of Justice officials to debate changing federal policy on prosecuting marijuana, signaling the bill will not include the law.

 

He told reporters that “We’re working on that very hard right now. We had meetings yesterday and talked about it at some length. It’s my view that the use of marijuana is detrimental, and we should not give encouragement in any way to it. And it represents a federal violation which is in the law and is subject to being enforced, and our priorities will have to be focused on all the things and challenges that we face.” Sessions was speaking at a press conference to reveal his new plan to fight the opioid epidemic.

Drug Dealer Forced To Pay For Funeral Of Teen Who Overdosed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

Word on the street is that some judicial figures are now forcing dope pushers to cough up large chunks of change to cover the funeral expenses of overly enthusiastic addicts who have lost their battle with the nod.

It was just days ago that U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett brought down the gavel in Ohio, one of the states most ravaged by the national opioid crisis, convicting a 29-year-old street hustler by the name of Michael Chandler to more than 16 years in prison on charges of drug distribution.

But simply sending this drug dealer to spend almost two decades behind bars with hardcore criminals was not a severe enough punishment in the eyes of the judge. He also ordered Chandler to pay $9,000 to cover a teenager’s funeral.

$30 Billion Global Cannabis Market Foreseen

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

This projection is based on a new report from the Brightfield Group, a marijuana market research firm based in Chicago. Currently, the global cannabis market is estimated to be worth $7.7 billion, but a compound annual growth rate of 60 percent is foreseen as countries around the world liberalize their marijuana laws.

The U.S. now accounts for 90 percent of global cannabis sales, the report found (presumably meaning just legal sales). But like other recent studies, the report found that other countries are poised to catch up fast. It predicted the U.S. share will drop to 57 percent by 2021—largely due to Canada’s plans to legalize recreational cannabis by July 2018. Several countries in Europe and Latin American are not far behind.

Forbes also noted that as Germany’s political parties—from conservatives to the Greens—continue their talks on forming a coalition government, part of their discussions includes an agreement on “fully legalizing” cannabis. Actually, the proposals call for marketing the herb through pharmacies or licensed dispensaries, which many would say stops short of full legalization. But German authorities have already allowed limited home cultivation for medical users.
