Reefer, cannabis, pot or weed? What marijuana search terms Californians are currently using

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana is known by many names, but some terms are more popular than others depending where you live.

Using Google Trends, the Times-Standard compared California’s searching habits over the past seven days for some of the more commonly used marijuana terms: cannabis, weed, marijuana and pot.

Before diving in, a quick note on how Google gauges search term popularity. The popularity of a term is calculated on a scale from zero to 100, “where 100 is the location with the most popularity as a fraction of total searches in that location, a value of 50 indicates a location which is half as popular, and a value of zero indicates a location where the term was less than 1 percent as popular as the peak,” according to Google.

The Fundamental Right to Use Cannabis

Category: Tokers | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

The legal cannabis industry’s reaction to President-elect Trump’s nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General has been mixed. While some believe that Trump will balk at the loss of jobs, departure from traditional conservative notions of federalism, and expenditure of political capital a Sessions-led crackdown on cannabis would presumably bring, others are preparing for the worst. This article explores one possible argument whose time has, perhaps, finally come – that the time is ripe for the courts to acknowledge the existence of a fundamental right to use cannabis.

As of 2017, cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under federal law – grouped together with heroin and LSD – with “no accepted medical use.” Nevertheless, the legal cannabis industry has flourished, despite the threat of federal prosecution, because of two important legal protections. The most historically important of these is the Cole Memorandum of 2013, which set the enforcement priorities of the Department of Justice with respect to “legal states”; in a nutshell, the Cole Memo states that so long as the states have “implement[ed]strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems,” and are not impeding the DOJ’s eight listed enforcement priorities (e.g., preventing cannabis from being provided to minors, interstate shipment of cannabis, enriching drug cartels, etc), enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act against state-legal cannabis businesses and users will be the DOJ’s “lowest priority.” The other important protection is the Rohrbacher-Farr Amendment, a budgetary provision that prevents the DOJ from spending any federal dollars on pursuing businesses or individuals who operate in unambiguous compliance with their states’ medical cannabis laws.

Philippines: Duterte Blinks in Deadly Drug War?

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

The Philippines’ ultra-hardline President Rodrigo Duterte may have finally gone too far. It is all too telling that after his anti-drug crackdown claimed perhaps 7,000 lives since he took power last June, it is the death of a prominent foreign businessman that has finally prompted him to—perhaps—rein in his murderous police.

All those suspected low-level drug users and dealers who were killed? Their lives don’t matter, apparently. But after rogue National Police officers abducted and put to death a South Korean shipping company executive, Duterte has finally pledged to disband the controversial anti-drug units.
