Congress Ties Jeff Sessions' Hands on Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the bogey man to many in the nation's burgeoning marijuana industry. Many pot entrepreneurs fear that the nation's top law enforcement officer – who once said "good people don't smoke pot" – will use the full force of the federal government to raid their businesses, even though the majority of U.S. voters support legal or recreational marijuana.

But this week, medicinal marijuana business owners and patients are breathing a sigh of relief: The compromise bill to fund the government through September includes an extension of a provision that keeps Sessions' hands tied by explicitly barring the Department of Justice from using its resources to go after marijuana growers, sellers and users in the more than two dozen states, plus D.C., that have legalized medical marijuana – though, inexplicably, North Dakota and Indiana were left out (possibly because of a clerical error).

‘Godfather of Grass’ Pleads Not Guilty in Federal Court

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A 73-year-old drug suspect known as the “Godfather of Grass” has made his first appearance in federal court in Louisville since his December arrest in Canada after eight years on the run.

The Courier-Journal reports John Robert “Johnny” Boone told U.S. Magistrate Judge Colin Lindsay on Wednesday that he understood his rights, and his lawyer entered a not guilty plea for him.

Boone was imprisoned after a conviction in the 1980s. Prosecutors said he had 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin. Prosecutors said he led a network nicknamed the “Cornbread Mafia.”

Authorities say Boone fled after being charged in 2008 with distributing marijuana grown on his farm in Springfield, where Kentucky and federal authorities allegedly found more than 2,400 marijuana plants.

New York MMJ Companies Sue Health Department to Keep Industry Small

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

New York is home to one of the most restrictive medical marijuana programs in the country—a shoddy deal that has made it difficult for thousands of patients to gain easy access to the medicine they need. But this has not stopped the companies hired to manufacture and sell cannabis products throughout the state from filing a lawsuit against the agency in charge of the program in hopes of keeping the industry small and exclusively in their hands.

According to a report from the Albany Times Union, four of New York’s five medical marijuana producers have filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health in order to stop them from licensing additional cannabis companies in their territory.

The complaint, which was filed by the Medical Cannabis Industry Association, argues the Health Department’s attempt to expand the market “will completely overstep its authority delegated by the Legislature,” as outlined in the 2014 passing of the Compassionate Care Act.
