Oregon Cannabusiness is Donating Proceeds to Bernie Sanders Campaign

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Anyone who is hoping for cannabis legalization and is keeping up with the presidential race so far knows that Bernie Sanders is our best shot at having marijuana rescheduled and laws reformed. So with that knowledge it shouldn’t be too surprising that there is quite a bit of support for Sanders in the states which have legalized or are currently trying to.

“The time is long overdue for us to take marijuana off the federal government’s list of outlawed drugs,” he said. “In my view, states should have the right to regulate marijuana the same way that state and local laws now govern sales of alcohol and tobacco.” – Bernie Sanders

Federal Agents Seizing Far Less Marijuana At The Southern Border

Is less marijuana entering the US from Mexico today than in years past? According to newly released data provided by the US Border Patrol, the answer may be ‘yes.’

Federal statistics reveal that law enforcement seized an estimated 1.5 million pounds of marijuana at the US/Mexico border in 2015. That total is the lowest amount reported in a decade and continues a steady year-by-year decline in seizure volume that began in 2009, when nearly 4 million tons of cannabis were confiscated.

Overall, 99.8 percent of all marijuana seized by federal border patrol agents was seized at the southern border.

It has been previously reported that increases in US marijuana production, particularly the rise of state-authorized commercial growing in jurisdictions like Colorado, has significantly undercut US demand for Mexican-grown cannabis, which is typically presumed to be of lesser quality.

Tech's Lax Analysis Raises Questions on His 7,800 Drug Cases

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

LITTLE FALLS, N.J. (AP) -- The New Jersey attorney general's office has notified prosecutors that a lab technician failed to properly analyze evidence in a drug case, calling into question more than 7,800 criminal cases he's worked on over the last decade.

Division of Criminal Justice director Elie Honig wrote in a memo last week that Kamal Shah was observed spending insufficient time analyzing a substance to determine if it was marijuana. Honig says Shah recorded an anticipated result without properly conducting the analysis.

Shah worked in the drug unit of the state police's North Regional Laboratory.

A spokesman for the attorney general's office says Shah hasn't been charged. He wouldn't say whether Shah is under criminal investigation.

Shah was suspended without pay in January. He couldn't be reached for comment.
