Dabs Snowball In Maine

Category: Concentrates | Posted on Tue, January, 6th 2015 by THCFinder
dabs-in-maineFor those who may possibly live under a rock, dabs are a concentrated form of marijuana that can sometimes leave a user rocked. Seasoned smokers love dabs. They hit hard and last a long time. Their discreet odor and small amounts make them easy to transport and ingest sneakily, regardless of where you are. In Bangor, Maine, where medical marijuana laws changed to allow concentrated cannabis, dabs are gaining an extremely large amount of popularity in the medical marijuana community. 
 
 
Since the explosion of e-cigarettes, the use of concentrated cannabis product has been on the rise. Since smoking them is so easy to conceal, people have been adding cannabis oil to their e-cigarettes, giving them an easy and portable way to get high. But while stoners are excited about the long lasting euphoria that comes with the concentrated product, law enforcement is worried about the effect that it might have on the people of Maine.
 
 
“Like methamphetamine labs, the production of the hash oil using this process can be extremely hazardous due to the chance of fire or explosion,” said Peter Arno, the northern commander of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. “The butane honey oil process produces a hash oil which can have extremely high THC content… If/when we run in to one of these types of extraction labs, MDEA’s lab team will respond in a similar fashion to meth labs.” While Arno has a point that the extraction process is dangerous, it isn’t completely fair to say that cannabis is comparable to meth. The extraction process can be dangerous and should only be done by professionals who know what they’re doing but comparing the two substances is just slightly unfair. 
 
 
Even advocates of marijuana are voicing concern for those who aren’t experienced in the marijuana world. “Because it is more potent, there is more of a public health issue,” said Paul McCarrier, a former spokesman for Caregivers of Maine. “Concentrates are much stronger than leaf marijuana and new users should take note.” McCarrier now leads the Legalize Maine public action committee, a group working towards legalizing recreational marijuana statewide. 
 
 
Concentrated cannabis holds large benefits for patients using medical marijuana. If people continue to act blindly and create their own products, therefore resulting in negative consequences, the possibility of concentrates being eliminated from the marijuana industry becomes larger. San Jose, California recently banned the sale of concentrates after fear of the negative effects got the best of people. In short, it is best to leave production of cannabis concentrate to the people who genuinely know what they’re doing

Massachusetts Schools To Offer Course On Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, January, 5th 2015 by THCFinder
mass-to-offer-schools-on-marijuanaThere are many people that probably thought that they would never see the day where a positive class about marijuana would be taught in schools. Not only that but never did people think that there would be fully established schools that are dedicated to teaching about marijuana. Jeanne Ficcardi-Sauro was one of the first students that enrolled at the new Northeastern Institute of Cannabis or NIC. The school is a two classroom school that is located in an office park that prepares people for positions in the marijuana business. Teachings range from jobs like dispensary workers to medical marijuana educators. Seeing as how dispensaries are set to open within the next year in Massachusetts, NIC has already graduated 12 students and 64 more have enrolled for the next bout of classes.
 
 
Help wanted ads are beginning to pop up on Monster.com, according to Keith Saunders, a sociology professor who oversees the curriculum at NIC. He figures that with each of the state’s 15 approved dispensaries, there will be a need for at least 35 to 40 workers, continuing to hire more as the businesses expand. “When the dispensaries roll out, it will happen quickly,” he said. There are other schools like NIC in the Massachusetts area. New England Grass Roots Institute in Quincy, MA caters to the medical marijuana patients and the Cannabis Career Institute occasionally offers business training sessions in Boston, regarding marijuana. 
 
 
NIC students receive a certificate of completion when they graduate the school. Each student must complete twelve four-hour courses, which includes medical marijuana 101. This class covers the basics of marijuana as a medicine, the law regarding cannabis in New England, an overview of the laws, and cultivation techniques. The only downside is that there is no actual marijuana on site. Instead, the school is strictly academic. Additionally, students must pass two hour long exam and pass with a 70% or higher on each of the 12 sections, with a final grade of 75% or higher. The length of the program is four to six weeks and as of right now, costs $2,000. The price will drop on January 1st to $1,500. 
 
 
Predicting exactly how many jobs will be created by the new program is hard to say but it will most likely be a significant number. With the call for growers, bud tenders, trimmers, managers, delivery services, etc, the marijuana business will create hundreds if not thousands of new jobs in the Massachusetts area.

DC's New Attorney General Says Marijuana Legalization Can Proceed

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, January, 5th 2015 by THCFinder
dc-marijuana-legalizationDuring the 2014 Election, Washington D.C. voters overwhelmingly passed a marijuana legalization initiative. Attempts by politicians outside of D.C. to prevent implementation were swift. Provisions added to the federal spending bill by members of Congress suggested that the marijuana legalization initiative would not become a reality. However, after a lot of analysis, and poor wording in the federal spending bill, it appears that attempts to stop implementation didn’t work. Washington D.C.’s new Attorney General agrees. Per the Washington Post:
 
Racine will have an opportunity to make an immediate splash: His office must review the implications of the closely watched marijuana legalization measure that D.C. voters approved overwhelmingly on Nov. 4 but that has since been subject to a congressional attempt to overturn it.
 
In an interview, Racine made clear that he would seek to uphold the ballot initiative, saying that the language included in the recent federal spending bill may block future attempts to loosen marijuana controls but not the Nov. 4 vote. His stance comports with the interpretation put forward by Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) and other D.C. and Democratic officials.
 
“We think Initiative 71 was basically self-enacted, just as the congresswoman does,” Racine said. “And we think there’s good support for that position, and we’re going to support that position.”
 
I cannot wait until there is legal recreational marijuana being grown in our nation’s capital. I would also like to see a thriving industry there, but I especially want to see average citizens growing their own marijuana in their own homes. That’s something I have been waiting to see for a long time. Hopefully people like Andy Harris will give up and realize that they can’t stop the winds of change, and that the reefer madness era in D.C. is over.
