Legislation Would Stop Next President From Shutting Down the Cannabis Industry

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, September, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

While the Obama Administration has been allowing legal marijuana states to operate without much federal interference, there are no concrete laws on the books to prevent the next president from closing down the cannabis industry as soon as he or she is handed the keys to the White House.

Despite the fact that the majority of the 2016 presidential hopefuls haven’t indicated any plans to topple the billion-dollar marketplace upon winning the election, the looming possibility has been enough to inspire one federal lawmaker to take a preemptive strike against any such action.

Democratic Representative Diana DeGette of Colorado announced plans earlier this week to reintroduce the “Respect States’ and Citizens Rights Act,” a measure that would simply prevent the future president from putting a stop to legal pot sales. The bill, which failed to get any traction several years ago, would provide states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes with a shield against federal law.

Woman who grew cannabis to help dying husband gets community order

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

A woman who grew cannabis worth £34,000 to extract hemp oil to act as a painkiller for her dying husband has been sentenced to an 18-month community order after a judge accepted she was not embroiled in a commercial enterprise.

Jeanette Hurst, 58, produced the oil to be used as treatment for her cancer-suffering husband, Roy, Burnley crown court heard.

The hearing was told that Mr Hurst, a former prison and drugs officer, ate the oil with chewy fruit sweets to mask the taste. Hurst said she grew the drug after hearing it would help his condition.

She pleaded guilty to producing cannabis and two counts of possessing cannabis with intent to supply.

Sentencing her to an 18-month community order with supervision and a specified activity requirement, judge Jonathan Gibson said: “It seems to me that the vast majority of cases that I have to deal with involved the growing or possessing with intent to supply with a commercial or similar element and it was sold for profit. This is not that sort of case.”

Cannabis is on the menu in America - so who will be the Starbucks of marijuana?

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Picture the scene: it's been a long day, you're feeling a little wired and have some time to kill. You drop into Dutchie's, a popular chain café, and place your order: "I'll have a skinny Morroccan and a gluten-free hash brownie, please." And you sit down among the business suits and chill...

If that scenario sounds a bit trippy, then think again. It seems that high times lie ahead, and there are signs that industry is ever more hungrily eyeing up the cannabis market in the wake of decriminalisation in the United States. Rap artist-turned-entrepreneur Snoop Dogg announced this week that he is launching a marijuana-based media company, Merry Jane, providing news, information and entertainment about and for the rapidly expanding cannabis industry in the US.
