Federal Politician Calls On DOJ To Reclassify Marijuana Under The Controlled Substances Act

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

Earl Blumenauer marijuanaToday, Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) welcomed the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg’s acknowledgement that “heroin is clearly more dangerous than marijuana,” and called on the Department of Justice to reclassify or de-schedule marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act.

In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Representative Blumenauer wrote:

“We are in the midst of a revolution to reform and modernize marijuana policy in the United States. Four states and the District of Columbia have legalized adult use. Additionally, well over one million patients across the country now use medical marijuana at the recommendation of their physician to treat conditions ranging from seizures, glaucoma, anxiety, chronic pain and nausea. The federal government is woefully behind.

“I fully support and agree with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg’s statement on August 5, 2015, that ‘heroin is clearly more dangerous than marijuana.’ This statement is backed by decades of scientific evidence, and rapidly growing public support recognizing that marijuana has been treated as a highly dangerous substance for far too long.

California Wildfires Are Affecting the Pot Industry

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

California’s wildfires are affecting the cannabis industry in the Bay Area, according to dispensary owners who say pot plants are growing around some of the state’s raging fires—especially the Rocky Fire near Clear Lake.

Timothy Anderson, purchasing manager at Harborside Health Center, a dispensary in Oakland, said one of the burned homes belonged to a cannabis grower who provides them with product.

“I can't remember [a fire] affecting our growers as much as this year,” Anderson told NBC Bay Area.

Anderson said about a quarter of their marijuana comes from growers near Clear Lake, and the smoke from the fire is damaging other growers’ crops as well. He expects the drop in supply will raise prices for dispensaries who buy from outdoor grows around the Bay Area.

“Unlike an apple or tomato, you can't wash a cannabis plant off,” Anderson explained. “The sticky resin is going to grab onto any environmental grit or grime from the air.”

The buds from those plants could be dangerous to smoke, he added, saying he wouldn’t buy any marijuana for a dispensary that smells like a wildfire.

Heavy Marijuana Use Does Not Trigger Serious Conditions Study Reveals

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

Chronic marijuana in the teenage years does not cause depression, psychotic symptoms, asthma or any other conditions thought of associated to it, a recent study revealed.
 
Even the researchers were surprised with the results. “What we found was a little surprising,” Dr. Jordan Bechtold, a psychology research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, revealed in a press statement.
 
“There were no differences in any of the mental or physical health outcomes that we measured regardless of the amount or frequency of marijuana used during adolescence,” he continued.
 
This latest finding, published in Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, contradicted to earlier studies, which reported that teenage marijuana users manifest psychotic symptoms and depression and event cancer and asthma during their later years. The study, which spanned 20 years, concluded that there is no link between marijuana use and ill-health. Young marijuana users did not even show signs of allergies, headaches or high blood pressure later in their life.
