Does North Korea Have a More Tolerant Pot Policy than South Korea?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

Well, absolutely not, but you could be forgiven for thinking so, based on a cursory review of recent headlines.

Although it hasn’t made much of splash stateside, the big news in South Korea this week is the “marijuana scandal” surrounding a singer from the suggestively named K-pop boy-band Big Bang, who goes by the stage-name T.O.P.

He could face five years in the slammer after a hair follicle test by the Seoul Metropolitan Police yielded positive results for cannabis. He was fingered for the test after a young woman busted for “liquid marijuana” (presumably some kind of extract) named him as the supplier, according to Korea Portal.

The affair could spell the end of Big Bang, whose massive and ravenous fan base makes them practically a mini-industry in South Korea—although the members approaching the age of mandatory military service was already a looming reality. Ironically, the stress of his cannabis case could be driving T.O.P. to harder stuff—last week he was found unconscious from an apparent overdose of tranquilizers. (An example of prohibition itself paradoxically making the bogus “gateway drug” theory a self-fulfilling prophecy.)

Medical Marijuana Bill Aims to Fight Jeff Sessions' Renewed War on Drugs

Category: Politics | Posted on Mon, June, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

A bipartisan group of U.S. senators introduced a bill on Thursday that would allow state medical marijuana laws to supersede the current federal prohibition on weed. The bill is dubbed the CARERS Act, which stands for the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act.

"The fact is our marijuana laws in America are broken," Democratic Sen. Cory Booker said at the bill's unveiling at the Capitol. "They are savagely broken, and the jagged pieces are hurting American people."

The legislation would allow the varying laws legalizing some form of medical marijuana in 30 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam to stand. When it was introduced in 2015 it was the first ever medical marijuana bill introduced in the U.S. Senate. But times have changed since then.

UK to Open First Publicly Available Dedicated Cannabis Research Facility

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

For a change, let’s hear some good news from the United Kingdom after a month that saw two terrorist attacks and now a tragic apartment fire in London where casualties are mounting as we speak.

The good news is that cannabinoid biotechnology company MediPen Ltd. is launching its own dedicated marijuana research facility this summer, and it will provide a platform for anyone looking to utilize its 1,800 square-foot facilities for the purposes of innovation in the area of medicinal cannabis.

As the first biotechnology company to develop a vapor product, MediPen Ltd. has already enjoyed success selling their non-psychoactive CBD vaporizers, which are currently in the process of securing a license from the British Home Office.

Their goal is to import and work with controlled compounds, including THC, for further research.
