As it grows, marijuana business becomes more tech savvy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

When he first began buying medical marijuana to treat his multiple sclerosis, Mark Manasse was forced to visit a dispensary every time he needed to get fresh buds.

But thanks to a host of new apps like Quil, he can order the marijuana from his home in California and wait for the delivery to arrive in less than an hour - much like you would a pizza.

"I like that they show me the expected delivery time so I can figure out, OK, I had better finish cooking dinner then, so I can be ready for when the delivery arrives," Manasse told CNET.com's Lexy Savvides.

The delivery apps are part of a growing push by the cannabis industry to bring technology to bear on everything from growing and testing to selling and delivering their product. And with the medical marijuana sector legal in 23 states and Washington, D.C. and becoming big business in places like California, where sales reached $1.1 billion last year, there is no shortage of entrepreneurs and investors interested in getting in on the action.

Organizations Call For Action On Illegal Body Cavity Search For Marijuana In Texas

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

cops law enforcement special needs students entrapmentRepresentatives from two organizations advocating for criminal justice reform in Houston will hold a press conference Thursday calling for Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman to immediately take administrative action against three sheriff’s deputies who forcibly conducted an illegal body cavity search on a woman in Houston. The organizations will also call for Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson to investigate the allegation and file any necessary criminal charges against the deputies involved.

The organizations involved are the Houston Justice Coalition and Houston NORML.

The Harris County Sheriff’s deputies have been identified as William Strong, Ronaldine Pierre and R. Rojas. The incident occurred on June 21 in North Harris County when a deputy stopped 21-year-old Charnesia Corley for allegedly running a stop sign. They claimed she smelled of marijuana, and demanded she pull down her pants and spread her legs in a public parking lot, according to reports. One of the deputies then began to insert her fingers into Corley’s vagina.

When Corley stood and protested, she was thrown to the ground and a second female deputy was called to the scene. According to Corley’s attorney, R. Pierre held one leg and sat on her back, while R. Rojas held her other leg. Both deputies then forced her legs apart and conducted an intrusive manual cavity search.

Most Anti-Pot Claims Supported by Weak Science

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

The majority of the anti-pot claims that pop up in your newsfeed on a daily basis, like marijuana is as addictive as heroin, or that weed causes lower IQ points, are supported by weak science, according to a new report released by the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy.

In the study entitled “State of Evidence: Cannabis Use and Regulation,” researchers paint a comprehensive portrait of the most common claims made in regards to cannabis use and the power of their supporting evidence. 

Interestingly, researchers found that most of these declarations are cherry picked in a manner intended to bamboozle the public – contributing to policies supposedly drafted in the interest of public safety that are rooted in misinformation.

Researchers say that claims about marijuana often “confuse correlation and causation,” and that just because “scientific evidence may find associations between two events, this does not indicate that one necessarily caused the other.”
