Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Vireo Health says its non-smokable medical cannabis products have been certified as conforming to the Jewish dietary law by the Orthodox Union.

Vireo says it's the first time a medical cannabis product has been deemed kosher.

The Orthodox Union says it awarded certification after inspecting Vireo's facilities to ensure the marijuana was grown and processed according to kosher standards. Those include, for example, insect-free plants.

Vireo says the certification will help the company serve patients among New York's Jewish population, the nation's largest. Its program is slated to start next month and will serve patients in New York state with certain qualifying conditions.

Recreational Marijuana Sales Tax Begins Next Week In Oregon

Limited recreational marijuana sales began in Oregon on October 1. Since that time, customers have not had to pay any tax on recreational marijuana. That changes next week when a recreational marijuana sales tax goes into effect in Oregon. Per Oregon Live:

Recreational marijuana consumers in Oregon should prepare for sticker shock starting Monday when a 25 percent sales tax kicks in.

The Oregon Legislature this year signed off on allowing medical marijuana dispensaries to sell recreational pot to anyone 21 and older. Those sales, which began Oct. 1, have been tax free. But that holiday comes to an end Jan. 4, when the state will impose a sales tax that extends until the end of 2016.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission, the agency regulating the recreational marijuana industry, isn’t expected to open stores until late 2016. Once the liquor commission’s program is up and running, the 25 percent tax will be replaced with a permanent 17 percent sales tax.

Power Five Conference Schools Ease Penalties for Pot Use Among Athletes

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

At least one-third of the Power Five conference schools are not punishing athletes as harshly as they were 10 years ago for testing positive for marijuana and other recreational substances, according to an investigation undertaken by the Associated Press

Last year, the NCAA cut in half the penalty for athletes who failed pot screenings at its championship events. 

NCAA chief medical officer, Dr. Brian Hainline, called college sports’ drug policies wildly inconsistent. 

“There should be one policy and it should be transparent,” Hainline told the Wall Street Journal.

One change Hainline would favor—ending NCAA testing for pot and other recreational drugs while encouraging schools to adopt their own comprehensive deterrence programs. 

“Our competitive safeguards committee said we should decrease the ban because (athletes) really aren’t doing it (recreational drug use) because of cheating,” Hainline told the AP.
