U.S. Department of Justice Task Force to Review Marijuana Enforcement Laws

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

With the new administration in the U.S., many states that have legalized cannabis or medical cannabis are wondering what will happen to state marijuana programs.  There has definitely been plenty of discussion here in Oregon about how things will continue to roll out and how the DOJ might deal with marijuana enforcement.

This week, we found out that states that have any kind of legalized marijuana policy in place might have a better idea by late July how the Department of Justice (DOJ) intends to handle marijuana enforcement under the Trump administration.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memo stating that the initial recommendations from the DOJ’s new task force on crime reduction and public safety would be due by July 27. The task force is expected to figure out ways to reduce violent crime and illegal immigration. Because of this, they will be evaluating existing policy in several different areas including marijuana enforcement, charging and sentencing, and asset forfeiture.
Uncertainly has lingered over what could happen to recreational or medical marijuana markets since Mr. Sessions took the lead at the DOJ.  Of course, there have been many individuals and companies who have been concerned about this very issue since the new administration began office, and particularly since Sessions was appointed since he has been outwardly against anything related to marijuana policy reform.

Why Is the DEA Messing with the American Hemp Market?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Hemp is still the most magic of all the plants in America. (First, a reminder: hemp is Cannabis sativa with next to no THC. Marijuana, in the always rational parlance of America, is also Cannabis sativa, but with THC.)

Hemp is legal to import into the U.S., and you can legally make hemp into products which you can then sell, like rope, soap, clothes and food. But for many years, you could not legally grow hemp, despite wild stands of the stuff growing in ditches through the Midwest, and store shelves full of hemp products.

That changed when Barack Obama signed into law the 2014 farm bill, allowing hemp to be legally grown in at least 16 states under certain, limited circumstances.

Yet hemp isn’t legalized. At all.

American-grown hemp is still illegal to ship across state lines. And hemp products are only legal to sell if the hemp was grown overseas—not in the U.S.

High Justice: Vape Manufacturer Awarded $47M In Counterfeit Case

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

Last month, a federal judge in Illinois granted well-known personal vaporizer manufacturer Grenco Science $47 million in damages from 65 different online retailers found to be selling counterfeit versions of its products. The court offered this ruling, not only for its monetary purposes, but to stop sales of unauthorized products online.

 The Los Angeles-based company has been the victim of such counterfeiting for years due to the extreme popularity of its products, recognizable trademarks and collaborations with major names such as Snoop Dogg, Burton Snowboards, HUF Worldwide and Taylor Gang. 

The defendants in question have used these trademarks and collaborative designs to lead consumers to believe they are receiving genuine items instead of poorly made counterfeits. Such items generally use non-certified batteries and materials, which can be not only short-lasting but even potentially hazardous to the user due to minimal protection around the anode and cathode sections within.
