Washington State Issues 142 Medical Endorsements To Already-Licensed Marijuana Stores

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

washington state medical marijuana raidsWashington State has one of the oldest medical marijuana laws in the country, and one of the oldest medical marijuana industries in the country as well. However, the medical marijuana industry has operated in a legal grey area for quite sometime, and after the passage of Senate Bill 5052, the industry has started to undergo dramatic changes. A lot of medical marijuana dispensaries will be forced to close, while others will be able to get licenses to continue to operate. Also, recreational marijuana stores will be able to get licenses and begin to sell to patients.

Statistics were released this week which showed that over 1,000 applications have been received for new licenses, and 142 already-licensed stores received ‘medical endorsements’ to begin selling to patients after the rules have been finalized and sales begin to be allowed. Per The News Tribune:

State government has in recent weeks stamped 142 retail marijuana licenses with a medical endorsement that will let them cater to patients come July 1.

The value of an endorsement for the roughly 65 percent of pot shops that have received one won’t be fully known, though, until more rules are set for Washington’s newly consolidated medical and recreational marijuana system.

Daughter Of DEA Head Busted As A Drug Lord

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

Head of the DEA in Beaumont, Texas, Bill Furay has been a prominent figure in busting drug cartels along the Mexican/American border for over five years. However, this time the newspaper headline for the latest drug arrest was his daughter – irony enough to make a complete embarrassment of the DEA once again.

It does pluck a curiosity to wonder what Furay´s opinion of the war on drugs is now, with his daughter on the receiving end of three drug felony sentences. The man who has been putting people in jail for trafficking drugs is now watching his daughter be put away for the same crime.

Well, she walks almost on the same path as her father. Although she has not been putting drug dealers away, she has been on the flipside of the coin as a drug dealer for quite some time. She sold drugs including LSD, cocaine, speed and marijuana.

Arrested Hawaii Medical Marijuana Collective Owner Launches Fundraising Campaign

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

hawaii medical marijuanaI received the following press release:

Big Island man Mike Ruggles launched a crowdfunding campaign this week to help pay for legal fees after being arrested for opening Hawaii’s first medical marijuana collective. Ruggles says this is an opportunity to help set legal precedence to establish medical marijuana collectives in Hawaii.

Ruggles had opened the Alternative Pain Management Pu’uhonua Collective on January 2nd, where patients with a medical marijuana certification could transfer marijuana between themselves. In order to stay in compliance with the 4 ounce limit members could dispose of their excess marijuana to other members in need. According to former nurse and collective volunteer Brittany Neal, “the marijuana itself was not ‘sold’ but rather ‘transferred’ for just compensation at a cost set by each member that included the electricity, fertilizer, and other direct costs that went into creating the marijuana.”

Collective members also had access to tinctures, concentrates, a MyDx purity testing machine, a vacuum purge oven, and consultation on cultivation, processing, and consumption of medical marijuana.

After the police raided and arrested Ruggles on September 10th, the collective has since closed, and Hawaii marijuana patients are back to finding medicine through the black market or going without. Ruggles is being charged with running an “unpermitted dispensary” and is facing 77 years in prison. According the Indiegogo campaign page, Ruggles had “noticed a change in the definition of ‘medical use’ in Hawaii’s medical marijuana law and combined with State and Federal laws, saw an opportunity for patients to help each other.”
