San Diego goes backwards and sues marijuana dispensary

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Tue, October, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
san-diego-sueing-dispensariesSAN DIEGO — The city attorney is suing to force a medical marijuana dispensary to close, a sign of a changed policy since the resignation of Mayor Bob Filner.
 
Soon after taking office, Filner had called for the city attorney to stop taking medical dispensaries to court to force their closure. The act was the beginning of a rift between Filner and City Atty. Jan Goldsmith.
 
Just days after Filner’s Aug. 30 resignation, Acting Mayor Todd Gloria reversed Filner’s hands-off policy toward marijuana dispensaries.
 
Gloria informed the city’s chief operating officer and assistant chief operating officer that enforcement of zoning violations by pot shops could resume.
 
This week, the city attorney filed a civil complaint to shut down the Central Wellness Collective on El Cajon Boulevard in the mid-city area. The complaint holds the property owners liable for allowing the dispensary to remain open in defiance of city zoning laws.
 
“The municipal code does not permit dispenaries in any zone and we will enforce the law to close their operation,” Goldsmith said.
 
It was the first such legal action this year.
 
During the tenure of Mayor Jerry Sanders, the City Council adopted and then rescinded a marijuana zoning ordinance.
 
The pro-marijuana movement, believing the ordinance too restrictive, had sought to have it submitted to a public vote.
 
Instead the council in July 2011 dumped it, leaving the dispensaries no location to operate legally; the city attorney followed with aggressive litigation.
 
A ordinance proposed by Filner that would have allowed marijuana dispensaries to operate was rejected by the council.
 
A new marijuana zoning ordinance, more restrictive than the one sponsored by Filner, is being vetted by neighborhood groups. The proposal should be ready for council consideration by January, a spokeswoman for Gloria said.

Canadian Government To Put $1.3 Billion Into Medical Cannabis Production And Distribution

Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
canada-putting-billions-into-medical-cannabisStarting Tuesday, Canada’s federal government will be launching a $1.3 billion market for medical cannabis, which is expected to eventually supply over 450,000 Canadians with cannabis, reports the Canadian Press.
 
Health Canada is replacing a system which relied on small-scale, home cultivation to supply medical cannabis, in exchange for a system of large indoor farms certified by Canadian police. Health inspectors will be tasked with the production, packaging and distribution of a variety of cannabis.
 
Initial sales under this new program are expected in the next few weeks.
 
The government will be putting no limit on the number of large grow operations that are in operation; they plan to base production on demand. The government is also expected to import some cannabis from places such as the Netherlands.
 
156 firms have already applied to become a producer or distributor. The first two received their licences last week.
 
Canada currently has 37,400 authorized medical cannabis patients, but officials expect that number to be closer to half a million by 2024; these estimates are considered to be conservative.
 
Health Canada projects that cannabis will be sold at an average of $7.60 a gram by next year, once the old system is phased out.

Dabs; Good or Bad?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
dabs-yes-or-noIf you don't know what dabs are, you're definitely behind the times on what's going on in the cannabis word. Dabs are a form of concentrated THC that is smoked. It is called numerous names, just like our dear Mary Jane (wax, shatter, oil, errl, etc). Unfortunately for those who indulge in this new form of getting stoned, parents and anti-marijuana campaigners are making dabs out to be the new heroin.
 
I have never tried to dab. It is not something that I am interested in, mostly because I have seen the results of badly made oil that looks like chunks of tar taken directly off of the road. Dabs are normally made with butane, which extracts the THC from the flowers and creates the concentrate, which can range from 70-90% THC. The concentrate can also be made with ice and water but takes a bit more effort but produces a MUCH better and much more desire result; ice wax.
 
The benefits of dabs include the following; They don't smell like weed does. Everyone who's transported weed in their car knows that that shit stinks. It's potent and cops can sniff it out better than doughnuts. Dabs don't give off that unmistakable odor. Another benefit is that since the THC is so concentrated, there is no need to have large amounts on you. It makes it easier to hide the substance in a purse or pocket. The best benefit (I think) is the fact that there are devices available to smoke dabs out of that are easily mistaken for an e-cigarette. Law enforcement won't know if you're exhaling water vapor or THC.
 
Now for the negative side. Whenever peoples tolerance to a drug gets too high, they seem to want to create something stronger to get the desired effect. While it may make sense to us as stoners, others don't see it that way. The making of dabs is extremely dangerous and should only EVER be attempted by a person who knows exactly what they are doing. There are numerous reports from all over the place of stupid kids trying to make BHO inside their house and blowing themselves up. Does that sound like meth to anyone else? That's how the anti-marijuana people view it. Uneducated kids are making the mistake of turning marijuana in to something that's actually harmful.
 
As I stated earlier, the area I live in does not produce quality shatter and I've seen severe butane headaches and people completely unable to function because they're literally too stoned. I'm not about that at all and would rather wait to try dabs when I have the opportunity to get well made product. Unfortunately, at this point in time, I think that it is a serious issue in the marijuana community. While the majority of stoners are getting higher than ever, there are people getting hurt trying to make this stuff. Obviously, since we know the conditions needed to produce this product, we have an inside perspective. Parents of the children who have hurt themselves by making BHO see it very differently than we do and will continue to use arguments like this against marijuana legalization.
