Shatter' Marijuana Seized In Pennsylvania 6 Times Stronger Than The Average Pot

Category: Concentrates | Posted on Fri, April, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

A highly potent marijuana product called “shatter” was recently seized in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as part of a drug bust on the home of 23-year-old Samual Schlenbaker, Lancaster Onlinereported Thursday. Shatter marijuana, considered the purest and most powerful weed product, often contains levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, six times stronger than the average pot.

Authorities said shatter marijuana was rare in the area. "We're starting to see evidence of it around here, but I can't say we've run into it a lot," John Burkhart, a Lancaster County Drug Task Force detective, told Lancaster Online. "I do think it has the potential to pick up." Schlenbaker was arrested in mid-March and charged with three felony drug counts, including possession with the intent to distribute, and 59 misdemeanor counts for drug paraphernalia possession.

Shatter marijuana, also called butane hash oil, has gained increasing popularity in recent years among pot consumers in the U.S. The cannabis product resembles clear, thin sheets of dried honey or tree sap and is made by an extraction process that removes any lipids or fats.

"You can grab it and hold it, and it's light,” Kaela Pelland, a health care worker with Réseau Access Network in Sudbury, Ontario, told CBC News. Canadian authorities recently seized a large amount of shatter marijuana. “Then you would, say, smash it and it would shatter, and that's where the name comes from,” said Pelland.

Users usually melt the product and inhale the smoke to get high. The process is sometimes called “dabbing.”

Not everyone is a fan of the marijuana derivative. Some pot legalization advocates say shatter gives the industry a bad rap. “Seeing teenagers wielding blowtorches or blowing themselves up on the evening news might incite a new anti-pot paranoia that could set the legalization movement back decades," Bobby Black, senior editor of High Times magazine, wrote in 2012.

DENVER — In the State Capitol, they are calling it Refund Madness.

A year after Colorado became the first state to allow recreational marijuana sales, millions of tax dollars are rolling in, dedicated to funding school construction, marijuana education campaigns and armies of marijuana inspectors and regulators. But a legal snarl may force the state to hand that money back to marijuana consumers, growers and the public — and lawmakers do not want to.

The problem is a strict anti-spending provision in the state Constitution that touches every corner of public life, like school funding, state health care, local libraries and road repairs. Technical tripwires in that voter-approved provision, known as the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, may require Colorado to refund nearly $60 million in marijuana taxes because the state’s overall revenue estimates ended up being too low when the marijuana tax question was put to voters. Lawmakers are scrambling to figure out a way to keep that money, and they are hoping Colorado voters — usually stingy when it comes to taxes and spending — will let them. In rare bipartisan agreement on taxes, legislators are piecing together a bill that would seek voters’ permission to hold on to the marijuana money.

“Despite our anti-tax feelings in the state, there’s an exception being made when it comes to marijuana,” said Michael Elliott, the executive director of the Denver-based Marijuana Industry Group, a trade organization that has not taken a position on the refund issue. “The industry is making a huge economic impact.”

Idaho Medical Marijuana Petition Is Available For Circulation Now

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder
 

marijuana cannabis idaho threeIdaho’s Cannabis Laws are outdated and make criminals out of non-violent, responsible (and often extremely ill) citizens.

In 2010, Boise State University conducted a survey that showed 74% of Idahoans supported Medical Marijuana. ‚ÄčIMAGINE WHAT THAT NUMBER IS TODAY!!

The Idaho Legislature’s most current efforts for Medical Marijuana was an affirmative defense law for CBD ONLY oil to give to epileptic children, but it stalled in the House Committee.

It is obvious, that our legislators ARE NOT speaking for us.  So it is time to speak for ourselves. It’s Time for  a New Approach!

Our initiative “Idaho’s New Approach to Cannabis” was first submitted to the Idaho Secretary of State on February 20th, 2015, with the final draft submitted on March 25th, 2015. It is now available for circulation.

We need valid signatures from 6% of the voting population in at least 18 of Idaho’s legislative districts, or 6% of the general voting population in Idaho (47,623 signatures), which ever is greater.

(6% Statewide is greater so our goal is 50,000)

We must have all validated signatures turned in by April 30th, 2016 to put it on the ballot for the November 2016 election.

The petition is available on our website, www.LegalizeIdaho.org, with circulation instructions for volunteers to help gather signatures.

Keypoints include:
– Idaho Medical Marijuana Act, which allows for 8oz & 12 plants for qualifying patients, as well as Medical Marijuana Organizations for the dispensary of medicine to qualified patients.
