Weed World vans around NYC are selling phony marijuana pops that don't contain pot

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
weed-world-popsThe only thing that’ll get you high at a Weed World Candies wagon is the exhaust fumes.
 
A fleet of flashy green vans and Hummers with Alabama plates has invaded the city, with vendors hawking lollipops they claim are made with pot.
 
“Weed!” the peddlers shout, sometimes with megaphones. “Stop by to get high!”
 
But the lollipops — which sell for $5 each or five for $20 — suck.
 
Smoking out a scam, NYPD officers “field-tested” the candy and found it contained no marijuana, officials told The Post.
 
“Maybe we can slap them with a charge of lying to the public,” a law-enforcement source said.
 
The bogus-buzz traffickers haven’t been busted for drug pushing or consumer fraud, but cops are cracking down on aggressive sales tactics. The outfit recruits “street teams and candy girls” to draw customers.
 
The 5th Precinct cops in Soho arrested three Weed World employees on July 30 on misdemeanor charges of selling goods without a vendor’s license. Cops also impounded a Weed World van parked at Prince Street and Broadway, with boxes of lollipops as evidence.
 
The city Health Department is also investigating. “A permit is required to sell any kind of food or drink in NYC. This vendor does not have a Health Department permit,” a spokeswoman said.
 
Cops stopped at a Weed World Hummer on Broadway in Soho last week but left after a peddler showed a vendor’s permit issued by the city Department of Consumer Affairs. A DCA spokeswoman said no permit was granted under the company name.
 
Weed World salesmen — one wearing a shirt with McDonald’s-like arches and the words, “Over one billion stoned” — gave various answers when asked about the content of the lollipops, which have names like Herojuana, Blue Dream and Strawberry Cough.
 
One said the candy is made with “different strains of marijuana, different plants grown all over the world.”
 
Another said the candy contains “hemp oil.” Hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant, is a controlled substance and is illegal to grow in the United States.
 
“It mixes with your body and gives off a nice, natural buzz,” said a manager who identified himself as Gregory “Ghost” Ware.
 
Customers felt conned.
 
“I don’t feel nothing,” said Antoine Johnson, 25, of The Bronx, who paid $20 for five of the spurious suckers. “I don’t feel high yet.”
 
His pal, Mark Santana, 25, agreed. “I’ve smoked weed, and this isn’t the same. It’s too much money for five lollipops.”

Idiot Facebook user offers marijuana for sale

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 11th 2013 by THCFinder

facebook-mj-salesBEMIDJI, Minn. — Bemidji police are investigating after someone posted a Facebook ad for marijuana.

A Bemidji Pioneer report (http://bit.ly/1eCpN5T ) says someone offered, "WEED FOR SALE!!!" on a page called "Bemidji Area Online Sale." The page allows people to advertise items such as cars, tools, baby clothes and electronics.

The controversial post shows a photo of a dozen glass jars containing what looks like marijuana. The poster said he'd be in a Target parking lot in a black and silver Ford Taurus for anyone who wanted to buy.

Two Beltrami County deputies went to the parking lot but didn't find the car.

The Facebook page was set up by Shawn Williams. He says page members were angry that he allowed the post, but police wanted it left up so they could track the poster.

Do you Dab?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, August, 10th 2013 by THCFinder

It's become a daily occurrence. Customers visit Hugs Alternative Care, a medical-marijuana dispensary in Sacramento, Calif., and ask for "dabs."
 
They are referring to butane hash oil, an especially potent form of marijuana, also known as "honey," "honey oil," "wax" or "earwax" because of its sticky, amber-colored appearance.
 
"We don't carry oils or waxes," Hugs manager Cathy Romer tells them.
 
Nevertheless, it's clear that the demand for dabs is out there.
 
The marijuana industry's latest "it product," dabs has been moving from the fringe into mainstream consciousness for years, although many card-carrying medicinal-marijuana users and even some law-enforcement officials know little about it.
 
High Times magazine featured dabs on its July cover, teasing it as "pot's most powerful high." Vice — the media company that recently accompanied Dennis Rodman on a diplomatic trip to North Korea to meet Kim Jong-un — has released a mini-documentary on the subject.
 
What makes dabs unique is the concentration of THC, the chemical that gives pot users a high. Donald Davies, a former manager of Sacramento dispensary Canna Care, said dabs can be 70 percent THC, compared with high -end cannabis plants, which register between 15 percent and 25 percent.
 
Dab makers soak cannabis in butane or alcohol to extract THC from the plant. After collecting a liquid, they boil off the butane and the remains solidify into what looks like tree sap. Users then "dab" or prick the waxy substance with a needle to pick it up, place it on the tip of a special pipe and ignite it with a small blowtorch to release fumes.
 
Products loaded with THC have been available for decades, carrying the name hash oil or honey oil. But even "regular, old-school hash" was often limited to 50 percent THC, Davies said. The use of butane makes the difference.
 
Addison DeMoura, a co-founder of the cannabis-analysis lab Steep Hill in Oakland, Calif., said dabs' potency benefits many of the sickest patients who cannot smoke cannabis to manage pain and help with appetite.
 
Many collectives are selling more butane hash oil than weed, he added.
 
"If a patient cannot smoke and needs to get the medicine, they can simply put BHO into a cup of tea and consume it that way," he wrote in an email. "The fact that the product is a concentrate makes it easy to infuse and consume. Dabs are part of the progress and the future of consumption."
