Abandoned Chocolate Factory to Start Selling Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
old-chocolate-factory-to-be-used-for-selling-cannabisThis former Hershey factory in Ottawa is on track to be repurposed into a weed manufacturing plant. It's like right out of a fairy tale! Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples couldn't be more pleased, and Canadian stoners everywhere are rejoicing at the prospect of a hydroponic hub, where weed flows like wine.
 
When the Hershey factory came to Smiths Falls in June of 1963, it brought jobs, tourists, and money to the town. When they shut down the factory, considered "the Willy Wonka Wonderland of Eastern Ontario," the jobs, the tourists and the money left. Now the smell of melted chocolate is being replaced by primo weed and Smiths Falls has a new opportunity for growth.
 
Ottawa-based medical marijuana company, Tweed Inc. has set its sights on the 470,000 sq. ft. abandoned chocolate factory in Smiths Falls, Ottawa. Location scouting has been difficult because landlords are particularly snooty when it comes to renting out space for "sanctioned drug production." This means jobs, revenue and buzz for the town. For Mayor Staples this is personal and he couldn't be more pleased. His brother lost his battle with colon cancer and medical marijuana "made his last days on this Earth much more bearable."
 
In June, the Canadian Department of Health said that people were no longer permitted to grow medicinal marijuana in their homes. Instead, they're allowing companies to manufacture and supply the drug. The chairman of a drug panel for Canada's Association of Chiefs of Police, Mark Mander remarked that this licensing was a "tightening up versus loosening up" of drug laws in that it distinguishes "the legitimate from the illicit use."
 
Over 30,000 Canadians have medical marijuana licenses, and Health Canada estimates that sales of the medicinal weed could reach $1.25 billion by 2024.

Uruguay Will Sell Legal Marijuana For $1 Per Gram, Official Says

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay -- MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Uruguay's drug czar says the country plans to sell legal marijuana for $1 per gram, though he's given higher figures in the past.
 
A law already passed in the lower house of Congress and expected to pass in the Senate later this year would make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers.
 
The El Pais newspaper reported Sunday that drug chief Julio Calzada says marijuana sales should start in the second half of 2014 at a price of $1.
 
He says the idea isn't to make money, but to wrench the market away from illegal dealers. Calzada said in August that the price would be around $2.5 per gram.
 
Sales are for locals only.

The Shut Down Of Silk Road

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
the-shutdown-of-silk-roadThe biggest taboo about buying weed would have to be buying it online. Even the idea of buying bud over the Internet is looked down upon. Most Instagram pages make it very clear; their photos are for educational purposes. Nothing is for sale. Asking about weed for sale earns ridicule and nasty comments on the web. However, one person pioneered drugs on the world wide web and now, is facing some serious trouble.
 
Silk Road was an Internet market place where you could buy whatever you really felt like buying in regards to drugs. Whether you were looking for marijuana or MDMA, Silk Road could provide discreet delivery of your drug of choice to your home. However, there were other items for sale as well, including books, art, and apparel. The site brought in around $92,000 a month as the "Amazon of illegal drugs". With almost 1,000,000 users registered when the site was seized and shut down by the DEA and FBI, Silk Road serviced users all over the world.
 
Using a form of money called Bitcoin, Silk Road was able to evade law enforcement for an extended period of time. It was in February of 2011 and was seized on October 2 of 2013. It's incredible that the site managed to stay up for that long. The site was so large that it had it's own personal army of dealers, growers, and manufacturers. Unfortunately for users and the owner of the site, an Australian MDMA/cocaine dealer was busted when his shipment to the site was intercepted and it all went downhill from there. In May 2013, the site crashed due to an outside attack and was officially shut down in October.
 
While the sale of drugs such as heroin and cocaine aren't exactly the best, marijuana was included in this site and from what users claim, it was some seriously good bud. Being able to get quality bud online via Silk Road was probably an outlet for a lot of patients in illegal states. Whether or not there were patients depending on Silk Road, it is debatable if the arrests of the people involved are because of the illegal substances being sold or in an attempt to complete annihilate any privacy on the Internet.
 
The alleged creator of the site, Ross Ulbricht is currently in jail but said in an interview earlier this week that he's "not concerned with the future" according the The Guardian . The 29-year-old didn't comment on whether he was guilty or not but this arrest is his first. His charges include drug trafficking, money laundering, soliciting murder, and computer hacking. Other than this one interview with the Guardian, Ulbricht has not been talking to the press on the advice of his lawyer.
 
Issues like this stem from so many rules and law being implemented on people. If the governments would back off and regulate things for the good of the people, things would be much different. In Switzerland, the government regulates the distribution of heroin in clinics. With this system, the country has reported that not only have HIV and crimes rates drastically decreased but the society overall has become incredibly socially productive. By regulating the amount of heroin that people use, plus being able to get medical grade heroin rather than the black market tar, the users of heroin in Switzerland can lead a better life. While heroin is an extremely dangerous narcotic, the majority of inmates in prison are charged with nonviolent marijuana crimes. If cannabis was legalized and regulated, there would be a severe decrease in "crime", as well as a more productive society.
