Vermont’s Perfect Storm to a Retail Cannabis Market

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

While cannabis advocates push to raise vast campaign funding to pass initiatives to legalize the leaf in their neck of the woods, Vermont is poised to become the first state in the nation to take this leap by way of its legislature.

Earlier this week, House Speaker Shap Smith—who has admitted in the past to not being completely sold on the concept of legal weed—said that he fully intends to stand behind legislation in 2016 aimed at establishing a retail cannabis trade across the state.

Although Smith has stood along the sidelines of the cannabis movement over the past year, he now taken sides with the will of the people to pass a common sense bill on the issue in the next legislative session.  

“It’s clear to me in my discussions with Vermonters that in general, the people in this state probably favor legalization,” Smith told Vermont Public Radio. “I will support a bill to legalize marijuana if we make sure that we have very strong protections for people who are driving under the influence, to make sure that we can prosecute them, and as long as we make sure that we have laws that keep marijuana out of the hands of kids.”

Denver quarantines marijuana products at two businesses for pesticides

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

Denver health officials Tuesday began inspecting and quarantining hundreds of marijuana products because their labels listed pesticides not approved for use on cannabis.

The move comes about six months after the city quarantined 100,000 plants at 11 grow facilities over concerns about pesticides.

Although pesticides are widely used on crops, their use on cannabis remains problematic because no safety standards exist. Marijuana is illegal under federal law, so the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates pesticides, has never established any limits.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture, however, has created a list of pesticides it says can be used.

The holds at Mountain High Suckers on South Lipan Street and MMJ America on Arapahoe Street come after Denver's Department of Environmental Health late Monday warned businesses that products with labels that reflect the use of unapproved pesticides should be removed from shelves and destroyed or returned to the manufacturer.

DEA Agents Don’t Lie, Says San Diego Judge In Medical Marijuana Case

San Diego CA – In one of the most depressing statements from a judge I’ve heard, Judge Jay Bloom of the San Diego Superior Court vilified cannabis patient witnesses from the bench while at the same time insisting DEA agents are bound to tell the truth on the witness stand or risk arrest and conviction.

The criminal case of Ernest James Knight and co-defendant Sandra began Wednesday with the preliminary examination. It was a two day affair and very expensive.  The prosecution called two DEA special agents to make her case. There were no local cops called. The first of the special agents, DEA Special Agent, John Gieson testified to 17 years of training in Virginia but when eventually questioned about California cannabis law, had no knowledge.  That is because the federal government does not recognize the truth of our cannabis laws.

Geison took us through the knock and forced entry on the first of two properties raided by the nine special agents who participated. The occupant of the first house, Sandra, was home alone in Oceanside February of this year and, according to Geison, marijuana was being grown illegally inside and in a shed in Sandra’s backyard. Geison counted 286 cannabis plants in various stages of growth. Sandra was arrested and interrogated and Geison claims she confessed to her crimes.  But, Sandra only told the special agent she was growing for a very ill woman and several other patients. All were medical cannabis patients. Sandra was not, but in her hospice and caregiver duties she provided medicine. From the stand, Gleison claimed statements which Sandra says she never made. It is a common thread in all testimony from all DEA special agents in these cases.
