Oregon among pot-legal states cracking down on marijuana industry’s black market

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

PORTLAND — Well before Oregon legalized marijuana, its verdant, wet forests made it an ideal place for growing the drug, which often ended up being funneled out of the state for big money. Now, officials suspect that pot grown legally in Oregon and other states also is being smuggled out, and the trafficking is putting America’s multibillion-­dollar marijuana industry at risk.

In response, pot-legal states are trying to clamp down on “diversion” even as U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions presses for enforcement of federal laws against marijuana.

Tracking legal weed from the fields and greenhouses where it’s grown to the shops where it’s sold under names such as Blueberry Kush and Chernobyl is their main enforcement measure so far.

In Oregon, Gov. Kate Brown recently signed into law a requirement that state regulators track from seed to store all mari­juana grown for sale in Oregon’s legal market. So far, only recreational marijuana has been comprehensively tracked.

What Happens When You Eat Animals Who Eat Drugs

Earlier this summer, Sanderson Farms, the nation’s third-largest poultry producer and the supplier of more than 10.6 million chickens to supermarkets throughout the South every week, was accused of false advertising. Sanderson is up-front and even “proud” about its industry-leading use of antibiotics, but the company’s “100 percent natural” chicken, consumer advocates claim, also contains pesticides, hormones, steroids, other pharmaceuticals and recreational drugs, including ketamine.

Sanderson is fighting for the right to call its chickens natural. But what happens when you eat an animal who enjoys regular access to prescription drugs—better access than the people who eat it, in some cases? (Most Sanders Farms factories are located in states that rejected the Medicaid expansion.)

As Gizmodo reported, you won’t get high.

California Rushing to Meet January 2018 Legalization Deadline

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

With only four months left until full legalization in California, regulations are literally being adopted on the fly.

The state needs to fill out its commissions and offices by hiring up to 82 people. Software has to be written in time to start accepting applications from the thousands of entrepreneurs hoping to sell weed. In fact, regulations governing sales aren’t even properly in place.

Lori Ajax, the director of the California Bureau of Cannabis Control (formerly the Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation AKA BMCR or, colloquially, “Bummer”), told the Sacramento Bee that California’s entire regulatory scheme was a work in progress.

Considering that voters approved Proposition 64 only this past November, delays are to be expected, but they are still cause for concern. And it’s worth mentioning that California has had medical marijuana since 1996.
