DEA Proposes A New Drug Code For Marijuana Extracts

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
The butane hash oil (BHO) phenomenon has resulted in a new request from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to create a new drug code for marijuana extracts. At a time when support for recreational marijuana legalization and medical marijuana legalization is at an all time high, the DEA feels the need to step up the war on marijuana. So much for the will of the people.
 
Per the United States Federal Register:
 
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is proposing to create a new Administration Controlled Substances Code Number (“Code Number” or “drug code”) under 21 CFR 1308.11 for “Marihuana Extract.” This Code Number will allow DEA and DEA-registered entities to track quantities of this material separately from quantities of marihuana. This in turn will aid in complying with relevant treaty provisions.
 
Under international drug control treaties (administered by the United Nations), some differences exist between the regulatory controls pertaining to marihuana extract versus those for marihuana and tetrahydrocannabinols. DEA has established separate Code Numbers for marihuana and for tetrahydrocannabinols, but not for marihuana extract. To better track these materials and better comply with treaty provisions, DEA is proposing to create a separate Code Number for marihuana extract under 21 CFR 1308.11(d)(36): “Marihuana Extract meaning extracts that have been derived from any plant of the genus cannabis and which contain cannabinols and cannabidiols.” Such extracts of marihuana would continue to be treated as schedule I controlled substances.

Cannabis Infused Drinks Causing Seizures?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 27th 2013 by THCFinder

Dilmer Funes Lovos, a 32 year old man, is facing charges for inducing the consumption of a controlled substance by fraudulent means. This is a pretty rare charge and the circumstances of this situation are pretty odd. Lovos allegedly gave two of his coworkers a small amount of Dixie Elixir, a medical marijuana drink. The two men ingrested the drink, with some extremely unsettling consequences.
 
One of the men who had some of this drink went in to a seizure and was vomiting while the other man experienced similar issues. While being given any drug without knowing can be a terrifying situation, one doesn't usually suspect cannabis when such a severe reaction occurs. The man who experienced the worst of the symptoms had never ingested marijuana before and would have never taken a sip from his drink if he had known it contained cannabis.
 
Cannabis is used to prevent seizures, so it's very strange that this one particular man had one. While it is unfortunate that he suffered such a bad reaction, one has to question if there were other substances involved or at least other factors. It's also common knowledge that eating marijuana has different effects than smoking it, it's still highly suspicious that such a bad reaction occurred, although the possibility of an allergy does exist.
 
Lovos has been ordered to pay for both men's medical bills, which total out to around $3,000. He is also required to do 100 hours of community service. Lovos' attorney said that he didn't mean for anyone to get hurt. And usually, with cannabis, not many people do. Hopefully, everything works out for all of these men and an incident like this never happens again.
