Maryland Man Gets 20 Years for 6 Grams of Weed

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

Although more judges across the United States have changed their opinion in regard to dealing with small-time marijuana offenders, many have not.

Perhaps the latest casualty in the War on Drugs is Ronald Tyrone Hammond Jr., who was recently sentenced to 20 years in prison for possession of less than six grams of marijuana.

According to a report in The Baltimore Sun, Hammond got popped in 2012 after an argument with his girlfriend ended up being settled by a couple of local cops. During a frisk, officers discovered a small baggie of weed in his pocket, barely enough for a joint, and took him to jail for misdemeanor possession.

When Hammond showed up in court to answer the charges, District Judge Askew Gatewood stared deeply into the eyes of prosecutors and essentially called them fools for wanting to lock a man up for less than a joint.

"Why would I want to spend taxpayers' money putting his little raggedy butt in jail—feeding him, clothing him, cable TV, Internet, prayer, medical expense, clothing—on $5 worth of weed?” Gatewood asked. It was here the judge urged Hammond to take a plea of “guilty” and a $100 fine in order to get the ridiculous case out of both of their lives as quickly as possible.

He took the deal.

Unfortunately, the full scope of Hammond’s cutthroat situation was not realized before he was persuaded to bargain with the court. Because of a 2009 conviction over a $40 crack deal, he was thrown under the judicial bus and sent off to serve the next two decades behind bars.

What You Should Know About Medical Marijuana for Pets

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

Be sure to consult your veterinarian first
Now that 23 states have given medical marijuana the green light (with even recreational use now allowed in another four states and Washington D.C.), growing weed has become a growing business. The newest frontier: getting Fido and Fluffy on board with the cannabis revolution.
Relax. We’re not talking about rolling doobies with your dog, or seeing “pretty colors” with your cat. Nope, these are cannabis-containing edible treats and capsules that are meant for sick or aging pets.
“The cannabis plant has many compounds in it,” Matthew J. Cote, brand manager at Auntie Dolores, a San Francisco Bay Area-based edibles manufacturer, told ABC News. Auntie Dolores launched its pet line Treatibles last year. “Most people grow cannabis for the euphoric experience of THC. But they’ve been overlooking cannabidiol—commonly known as CBD—which is non-psychoactive,” he said.
CBD, in fact, does not produce a high, and it’s true that it’s been studied as a potential treatment for epileptic seizures and pain relief for cancer patients.
So, as Cote explained to ABC News, the theory is that since aging canines share a lot of the same health problems as humans, there must be a market for pot-laced dog “medicine.” Sold online ($22 per bag of 40 treats,, Treatibles contain 40 milligrams of CBD per treat and makers advise giving one per 20 pounds of your pet’s weight.


Washington Sells Almost 25 Million Dollars Worth Of Recreational Marijuana In April

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 11th 2015 by THCFinder

WashigntonThe numbers are in for Washington State’s recreational marijuana sales for April 2015. This was the first 4/20 for recreational marijuana sales in Washington. Sales started in July of 2014. As I expected, sales grew significantly compared to earlier in the year, and exponentially more than last summer. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

Sales via rec shops totaled $24.8 million in April, up from $12.7 million during the first month of 2015, according to the latest data from the state Liquor Control Board.

The number is up significantly from the $2 million brought in during July 2014, the first month that sales began.

From July 1 through the first week of May, total retail sales in Washington State totaled $119.7 million, with projected retail excise tax revenues of $29.9 million.

I’d expect those numbers to come back down for May. April 20th, and the days leading up to it, will always give a boost to marijuana store numbers. Something to watch for in Washington is the implementation of Senate Bill 5052, which is going to drastically change the landscape of the marijuana industry in Washington. The bill is an attempt to fuse the medical marijuana industry with the recreational marijuana industry, which is going to either force patients to pay much higher prices for their meds at licensed stores (which would boost numbers for current rec store owners), force them to go back to the black market, or even worse, force them to go without meds altogether.
