Catapult Wants To Be The Starbucks Of Marijuana-Infused Coffee

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

James Hull recently went back to his roots as a 3rd generation horticulturist after a career in high-tech engineering.  The result? Catapult, a Marijuana-infused coffee which according to Hull makes you feel blissful and energetic at the same time.
It seems only natural that Hull runs his company, Fairwinds Mfg., just a few hours south of America’s coffee capital, Seattle.
(Catapult coffee from Fairwinds Mfg should not be confused with Fairwinds coffee from The Rogers Family Company which makes traditional coffee in California)
Hull got his new business going quickly and funded it himself. The pace was intense, he said. From February of 2014 to February of 2015, Hull and his wife moved into a camper on the facility’s property so he could work day and night with a small group of employees including other horticulturists, chemists and a microbiologist. He dipped into some of his savings and assets to fund the creation of the facility.
Now growing and processing marijuana, Hull has released his inner-geek to employ all the latest technology.  The air in Fairwinds’ grow facility is filtered six times per hour through a bank of Hepa filters, computers control fertilizer injection for the plants as well as environmental aspects of the grow rooms like humidity, temperature, air flow, light and CO2 supplementation to maximize the plants’ yield.  It’s a far cry from his family’s flower shop where he spent his teenage summers. The mechanized operation means he needs just 10 employees to help him run the company.


Fewer Marijuana Packages Found In US Mail After Recreational Marijuana Sales Legalized

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

usps mail marijuana fed exI have yet to see a significant prediction made by marijuana opponents prior to marijuana legalization occurring that has come true. There is no mayhem on the roadways. There is no epidemic of marijuana getting in the hands of children. Last time I checked the sky is still in tact, the American economy hasn’t lit on fire due to a generation of stoner zombies being a part of the workforce, and there has been no ‘ten dollars in social costs for every one tax dollar generated by the marijuana industry.’ One prediction that I heard a lot from marijuana opponents before recreational marijuana was legalized is that the legal marijuana grown in legal states would flood non-legal states, especially via the mail. Turns out the math says otherwise.

In 2014, the same year that legal recreational marijuana sales began in Colorado and Washington, marijuana packages found in the mail actually dipped. Per US News:

The amount of marijuana detected in the national mail system surprisingly declined in 2014 as the world’s first licensed recreational marijuana stores opened in two Western states, appearing to dash at least some predictions of chaos as other jurisdictions move to legalize the drug.

Data provided to U.S. News by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service show the number of marijuana parcels seized by inspectors fell more than 12 percent in fiscal 2014, with a coinciding decrease in the collective weight of contraband cannabis.

The fiscal year began on Oct. 1, 2013, three months before pot stores opened in Colorado, and ended on Sept. 30, 2014, three months after stores opened in Washington state.

Mayor could lead fight against legal marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, June, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

With a major battle in the making over marijuana legalization next year, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, a recovering alcoholic and a passionate advocate for those struggling with drug addiction, is emerging as the most likely face of the opposition.

Walsh said he would “absolutely” be willing to take the lead opposing the anticipated referendum in 17 months, presuming no other high-profile leader steps forward.

“I just think it would be a mistake to legalize marijuana in Massachusetts,” said Walsh. “I’ve seen too many lives ruined by starting to smoke weed and then, eventually, going to other types of drugs.”

Governor Charlie Baker, Attorney General Maura Healey, and Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley all oppose legalization, but none appears keen to lead the charge against the expected 2016 ballot question to legalize marijuana for recreational use.

There is political risk in opposing a referendum many pundits and elected officials expect to pass. Strong majorities of Massachusetts voters approved measures that decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana in 2008 and allowed its use for medical purposes in 2012.

But Walsh’s position is a matter of conscience, according to aides. Even as mayor, he still personally helps people struggling with addiction find beds in rehabilitation facilities, they said.
