Banks To Accept Marijuana Money

Good news for all dispensary owners! Banks are beginning to relax their standing on accepting money that was used in the marijuana industry. The government recently release a set of rules for the banks to follow regarding this industry and they are going to allow the financial institutions with banking services, just like any other business. With such large amounts of cash being handled, marijuana establishments being barred from banks creates a huge public safety problem, not to mention an inconvenience for customers and patients.
 
According to the rules that have been set forth, the banks must be labeled as "suspicious" and will be investigated after the bank files a report (Suspicious Activity Reports is what they'll be called). Transactions that are believed to be legal will be reported as "marijuana limited" transactions. For other transactions that the banks believe the be illegal, they will be labeled as "marijuana priority" and will be further investigated by the bank's cannabis industry regulators.
 
While the new rules aren't going to solve everything, at least the government is taking steps in the right direction. Dispensary owners will be able to store their money in a safe place, as compared to stuffing it in their mattresses to keep it guarded or having to leave it in the safe at the store. Cannabis may still be illegal under federal law but forbidding these large amounts of money from entering bank accounts is only going to promote black market activity and other money related crimes.

Citizens Initiative Underway To Legalize Cannabis In The European Union

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, February, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
eu-cannabisA citizens initiative to legalize cannabis in the European Union is underway, with advocates needing to collect 1 million signatures from 7 member states within a 12 month period.
 
Advocates of the initiative – which was approved by the government in November – officially began their signature gathering campaign this week. If advocates are successful in gathering enough signatures, the measure would be put to a vote next year.
 
According to the group behind the initiative (Weed Like to Talk), it “aims at making the EU [European Union] adopt a common policy on the control and regulation of cannabis production, use and sale.”
 
In addition to legalizing cannabis possession, the proposal would legalize cannabis cultivation, as well as cannabis retail outlets.
 
The effort marks one of the most far-reaching attempts at cannabis law reform in European history.

The Effects Of Bad BHO

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, February, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
effects-of-bad-bho
By now, the majority of the stoner community is familiar with dabbing, the process of inhaling concentrated THC material that can be used as an incredibly powerful and potent medicine. Unfortunately, the process of making this substance can be extremely dangerous for those attempting it that aren't professionals. The end result can also cause problems for those that use the dabs, as the purging process can sometimes be overlooked, leaving large amounts of butane left in the product.
 
First of all, the process of making BHO can be extremely dangerous. The conditions need to be perfect, not in a kitchen, garage, or storage closet in your apartment building. All of the equipment used must be high grade. Skimping on things like tubes can result in breaking glass and explosions, leading to serious injury. If you don't know what you're doing, don't attempt to make BHO. Explosions like this are what is causing such a negative light to be shed on dabs, which are being called the "crack of marijuana".
 
If BHO is not properly purged of the leftover butane, the product can cause extreme headaches. Most people seem to think that this is the worst side effect but others do argue that the inhalation of the excess butane gas is severely harmful to the lungs and throat, causing terrible side effects. There was one report of a young girl that was dabbing when her throat suddenly swelled up, causing her to have trouble breathing. Fortunately, she was rushed to the hospital in time and was treated for chemical epiglottitis , a condition that effects the flap of skin between the esophagus and trachea. This skin flap becomes inflamed when an irritant is introduced, such as certain chemicals or high levels of heat. However, it is not thought that butane was the cause of this but some other irritant in the product of perhaps the inhalation of the heated air.
 
Products like this need to be made well, especially if it's patients that are using the substance for medical reasons. Always be sure to make BHO correctly, in well ventilated areas, and with the proper equipment. If you're going off of a YouTube video, you should probably not try to accomplish this process. Only those that are experienced should be making BHO, just to be on the safe side.
