Pakistan: Anti-Pot Repression Proves Pointless

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

Pakistan's Anti-Narcotic Force (ANF) on Nov. 20 announced the latest in a string of of mega-scale hashish busts in recent months. A 4.2-ton haul was reported from a "desolate site" near the mountain village of Tehsil Gulistan, in Qilla Abdullah district of Balochistan province. Authorities said the mega-stash had been deposited along with a smaller quantity of heroin in a hidden spot behind bushes for traffickers to collect for export. 

The ongoing mega-busts come amid a major paramilitary crackdown in Pakistan's hashish heartland, the Tirah Valley in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas near the Afghan border. The valley typically produces at least 100 tons of hash annually, but it has now been flooded with soldiers and militiamen—who since September have been raiding farms, establishing road check-points and seizing product from roadside stands and marketplace stalls that have traditionally sold the stuff. "In the land of towering pot plants, Pakistani farmers brace for a buzz-kill," read the witty Washington Post headline as the soldiers poured in. 

The hashish crackdown punctuates a military campaign against the Taliban in the Tribal Areas that has left over a million internally displaced since it was launched over a year agoAl Jazeera reported in June. But it doesn't seem to have slowed the flow of hashish out of the Tirah Valley.

Minnesota Expands Medical Marijuana Use to Pain Patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

After months of deliberation, Minnesota health officials announced that residents with chronic and intractable pain will be allowed to use medical marijuana starting this August.

Minnesota, which approved medical marijuana in 2014 but with extremely tight restrictions and currently only has 760 registered patients, could see a significant expansion of the state’s enrollment with this decision. 

Pot in leaf form is still banned; only two manufacturers make and sell marijuana pills, oils and vapors, which can be purchased at one of the state’s eight dispensaries.

Ed Ehlinger, Department of Health Commissioner, said these tight restrictions, as well as stories from people suffering from constant pain, ultimately outweighed the medical community's concerns that there was not enough evidence to use medical marijuana to treat pain.
