Hashish Mega-Haul in Pakistan Points to New Production Zone

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

Last week, Pakistan's Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) announced the seizure of a huge shipment of hashish, weighing 3.37 metric tons and said to be destined for international markets.

An ANF unit carried out the raid in a remote area of the Balochistan province, apparently acting on a tip. The raid targeted what was called a "desolate site" in the Qilla Abdullah district, along the border of Afghanistan. The stash was reportedly stuffed in plastic bags at a hidden location.

Pakistani news accounts (e.g. the International News and Pakistan Today) actually referred to the seized substance as "hashish (Garda)," which is a slight contradiction.

Hashish is properly known as charas in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India, while garda is Pashto for "dust"—meaning the unrefined resin shaken from the cannabis buds (what is known in North Africa as kif).

So presumably, this stash was yet to be refined into hashish and was produced locally rather than having been smuggled across the border from Afghanistan. This points to Pakistan emerging as a major producer of hashish for export, as opposed to just a transfer country for Afghan product.

LAS VEGAS -- The Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended UFC welterweight Nick Diaz for five years on Monday because of the third marijuana-related offense of his career.

The NSAC discussed a lifetime ban for Diaz, 32, before voting unanimously on five years.

NSAC commissioner Skip Avansino acknowledged during deliberations a five-year ban is essentially "a lifetime (ban) for (Diaz)."

Diaz (26-9) appeared before the commission in person but declined to answer any of its questions. Commissioner Pat Lundvall forced Diaz to verbally plead the fifth throughout a long series of approximately 30 questions.

DEA Agents Impersonating Medical Board Investigators To Gain Access To Personal Health Records

I deal with information security quite a bit at my cubicle job. I don’t know everything there is to know about information security, but one thing that I know for sure is that medical records have a heightened level of protection. I think that is common knowledge by now. Personal health records are not public records, and only people that qualify for that information are allowed to access it. That is, unless you are a DEA agent. Per Watch Dog:

Instead, the agents are tricking doctors and nurses into thinking they’re with the Texas Medical Board. When that doesn’t work, they’re sending doctors subpoenas demanding medical records without court approval.

The DEA can’t even count how many times it has resorted to the practice nationwide. A spokesman estimated it was in the thousands.

But, as a legal brief filed last week points out, lawyers for the federal government can’t find a single case in which a court has “authorized the use of such a broad array of patient information with such a sparse record as to why it needs such information.”

Obviously these DEA agents are just fishing for information, otherwise they would have warrants signed by judges that would allow them to legally obtain this information. This is yet another example of the DEA doing what it wants, regardless of what the rules are. The DEA needs to be de-funded and shut down immediately. By their own admission, they don’t even know how many times they have done this, just that it’s likely ‘in the thousands.’ That’s clearly unacceptable.
