Major Drug Tunnel Found on US-Mexico Border in California

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Authorities seized 12 tons of marijuana and arrested 22 people after discovering one of the longest cross-border tunnels between the U.S. and Mexico, officials said Thursday.

The passage connecting warehouses in San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, was about 2,400 feet long and 30 feet deep. It was lit, ventilated and equipped with a rail system - hallmarks of the most sophisticated tunnels found along the border.

Near-simultaneous police stings on Wednesday resulted in six arrests in San Diego and 16 in Mexico. Authorities recovered two tons of marijuana in the U.S. and 10 tons in Mexico.

U.S. authorities said smugglers tried to move the first load of drugs through the tunnel on Wednesday but that nothing got through undetected.

The sting came after an undercover agent for U.S. Homeland Security Investigations agreed to provide the drug smugglers with drivers and use of a warehouse in exchange for a $10,000 payment for each truckload of drugs moved, according to a probable cause statement.

U.S. marijuana use, approval of legalization soaring

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, October, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

A record number of Americans think marijuana use should be legal, according to a new poll released Wednesday by international pollster Gallup.

And government surveys published Wednesday offered further indications that marijuana is moving into the mainstream nationally, nearly three years after Colorado voters legalized recreational pot.

Marijuana use among U.S. adults doubled over the past decade, rising to more than 22 million mostly recreational users, the surveys show.

The results come from a comparison of health surveys from 2001-02 and 2012-13 sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Almost 80,000 adults aged 18 and older participated in face-to-face interviews about various health-related behaviors, according to results published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.

Legal Marijuana Retailers And Growers Prohibited From Keeping Guns For Protection

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

handgun and weedNoah Stokes, founder and CEO of CannaGuard Security, recently appeared on the Ganjapreneur.com podcast to discuss security difficulties facing the cannabis industry.

CannaGuard Security is a Portland, OR-based cannabis industry security company that serves marijuana businesses nationwide. From storefronts to grow ops, CannaGuard helps companies meet and understand the standards put in place by state regulators, and offers contingencies and preventative measures as safeguards against theft and robberies.

Noah joined Ganjapreneur podcast host Shango Los to discuss some of the most common requests his company receives, major flaws in the logic used by regulators when defining mandated security protocols, and how cannabis retailers and producers can best prepare for worst case scenarios.

Stokes explains how one of the biggest regulatory flaws facing the cannabis industry is that — according to the Cole Memo, issued in 2013 by the Department of Justice — there are no firearms permitted on the premises of legal marijuana businesses. “Their intent… was to keep the cartels from having a table full of gold AK-47s,” Noah said. “I get that, but having a retired police officer have a concealed-carry to protect himself in an all-cash marijuana business — that probably makes a little bit of sense.”

The full podcast episode is available via iTunes or Ganjapreneur.com, where there are transcripts available of this and previous episodes.
