DEA Monitoring Internet Activity in Colombia, Is the U.S. Next?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

Dope-sniffing agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration are reportedly spying on all of the Internet activity in Colombia, according to a leaked email transmission regarding the federal agency’s surveillance tactics inside the South American country.

Last Monday, an email sent by Eduardo Pardo, who works as a Field Application Engineer for Hacking Team, began spreading on Twitter indicating that the DEA has purchased software that essentially gives them the power to Big Brother home computers and smartphones – not just in Colombia, but potentially in the United States. 

Hacking Team is a Milan-based tech company that provides law enforcement and intelligence agencies all over the world with highly advanced spy ware. The company, while having made proclamations to not sell to nations boycotted by the U.S and NATO, is suspected of doing business with questionable regimes from Sudan to Egypt.

An article published earlier this week in Forbes reveals that since the company has expanded its offices to Maryland, the DEA and FBI has been working more frequently with the company “as they seek to break common encryption across mobiles and desktops.”

Illinois approves 1st medical marijuana workers to grow legal pot

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

Sunlight streaming through a glass roof in a rural warehouse will likely soon be feeding one of Illinois' first legal crops of marijuana seedlings.
 
The company that owns the warehouse, PharmaCann LLC, is preparing for a final inspection from state regulators Tuesday. Once that is secured, along with IDs for workers who have passed background checks, Illinois' fledgling medical marijuana industry will finally be able to get down to business — growing pot — nearly two years since a change in state law made it legal and after a series of hiccups in the rollout that followed.
 
Since the state began issuing the worker IDs earlier this month, at least six cultivation centers have been approved to receive them, Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Kristi Jones said via email. The cultivation houses must pass a department inspection before receiving written authorization to commence operations but should begin growing "very shortly," Jones wrote.
 
In March, the state issued preliminary licenses for 18 cultivation centers, whose owners have since been busy overseeing construction, buying and securing equipment and hiring employees. On Friday, the state announced that it had authorized the first two to begin growing and expected to greenlight more in coming days.

Oregon airport allows marijuana on in-state flights

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

(CNN)Want to fly with your marijuana?

If you're flying within the state of Oregon, you're in luck.

The Portland, Oregon, airport will now allow you to fly with it in-state, provided you are carrying the legal amount, according to CNN affiliate KPTV.

As of July 1, people in Oregon can possess and use marijuana if they are 21 or older. They can have up to 8 ounces in their homes and grow up to four plants out of public view. Oregon residents also can carry up to an ounce outside their homes, although it's illegal to smoke it in public.

But they can't transport it out of state.

And the new airport rule doesn't mean it'll be smooth sailing through the security checkpoints operated by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

Federal law governs the TSA's screening procedures, and marijuana remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government. But the agency's primary mission is to "detect threats to aviation security," according to the agency.
