Alaska Marijuana Regulators Approve First Licenses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- Alaska regulators were applauded Thursday as they approved the first licenses for legal marijuana growing and testing facilities - another milestone for the fledgling industry.

Priority was being given to growing and testing operations to ensure that retail stores will have legal product to sell. The first retail licenses are expected to be issued later this year.

Thirty applications were on the agenda Thursday at a meeting of the Marijuana Control Board in Anchorage. Two were for testing facilities. The rest were for grow operations.

NFL Player DeAndre Levy Speaks Out In Support Of Medical Marijuana Reform

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

deandre levy marijuanaNFL player Eugene Monroe, who plays for the Baltimore Ravens, has been on a mission to change the NFL’s harmful policy on marijuana. I say it’s harmful because marijuana prohibition in the NFL is limiting the forms of treatment and medicines that players can use. Instead of being able to use medical marijuana, which is now legal in 25 states (many of which have an NFL team), players are pressured into using harmful painkillers that often lead to addiction, are harmful to a person’s body, and often times aren’t effective.

I’m not advocating for allowing medical marijuana, but prohibiting other medicine in the process. What I’m saying, and what I hear Eugene Monroe saying, is that players should be able to choose for themselves. There should be no taboo when it comes to cannabis, and considering the promising research that is already out there, the NFL should be at the forefront of cannabis research to see how it can help players.

That message appears to resonate with at least one other current NFL player. DeAndre Levy, who plays for the Detroit Lions, had the following to say about medical marijuana research for NFL players, per Detroit Free Press:

Voter Suppression Under Investigation in Emerald Triangle

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

The California Attorney General’s Office sent a team to the Emerald Triangle's Siskiyou County in the prelude to the June 7 primary election, following reports of armed men from the sheriff's department intimidating members of the county's Hmong community—including menacing some at gunpoint.

Sheriff Jon Lopey said the deputies were mobilized as part of an investigation into voter fraud, and had to be armed because of rifle-toting cannabis growers in the areas. But the investigation seems to have exclusively targeted Hmong residents—some of whom were falsely informed that it is illegal for them to vote.
