Not Pot: US Hemp Farms Take Root Under State Pilot Programs

EATON, N.Y. (AP) — A lush field of cannabis growing on a secluded hilltop in central New York may look and smell like marijuana, but its myriad uses don’t include getting high.

New York’s first legal hemp farm in decades has taken root under a pilot program that’s part of a national resurgence of a plant that’s prized for making food, clothing and shelter but long banned along with its smokable cousin.

“The versatility of this crop is amazing,” said JD Farms co-owner Mark Justh, who left an international finance career to grow organic hay and pastured beef cattle and pigs on farmland 170 miles northwest of New York City. He added organic hemp to the mix this summer under a research partnership with Morrisville State College.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

The legalization of medical cannabis increases workplace participation among those aged 50 and older. This is according to a study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

According to the research, “health improvements experienced by both groups (older men and women) permit increased participation in the labor market”, which led to a “9.4 percent increase in the probability of employment and a 4.6 percent to 4.9 percent increase in hours worked per week”.

The paper – titled The impact of medical marijuana laws on the labor supply and health of older adults: Evidence from the Health and Retirement Study – concludes by stating that; “Medical marijuana law implementation leads to increases in labor supply among older adult men and women”, and that “These effects should be considered as policymakers determine how best to regulate access to medical marijuana.”

New Report: 1 Pot Arrest Occurs Every 49 Seconds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite the fact that medical marijuana is now legal in 25 U.S. states and weed legalization is on a tear across the land, the FBI recently released its Uniform Crime Report revealing that one person still gets arrested for weed possession every 49 seconds.

The FBI report shows that of the 1.5 million drug busts in 2015, nearly 39 percent were for weed (more than 600,000); heroine arrests were barely 19 percent, and coke only five percent.

While the number of pot possession arrests in 2015 was the lowest since 1996—and certainly a drop from 2007 when arrests peaked at nearly 800,000—these numbers still seem way too high, especially knowing what we know about cannabis.
