How Hemp Can Clean Up Radiation From Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

MINNEAPOLIS — The cannabis plant has myriad uses, from paper, fabric and even fuel that can be created from industrial hemp, to the many health conditions which benefit from medical marijuana. Here’s one more benefit to add to the list: removing toxic metals and even radiation from soil.

The process of using plants to clean polluted soil is called phytoremediation. According to a 2014 report from Nation of Change’s Christina Sarich, two members of the mustard family are more frequently used in phytoremediation, but cannabis has shown some promise because of its hardiness to toxins and quick growth rates. Some have even considered using it near Fukushima.

A group of representatives of Consolidated Growers and Processors, PHYTOTECH, and Ukraine’s Institute of Bast Crops experimented in the late 1990s with using industrial hemp, a form of the plant that’s high in fiber but low in psychoactive or medical benefits, near the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, where a great deal of agricultural land is still unusable because of the presence of radiation and heavy metals still lingering from the 1986 meltdown.

Are Dangerous Pesticides In Your Marijuana?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

black widow marijuana strainIt seems that the talk of the cannabis industry right now is pesticides being used by growing operation in Colorado. Over the past few years, the marijuana industry has gone fairly unregulated on how businesses can grow their plants and what pesticides can and cannot be used, due mostly from industry pressure. However, this may be coming to an end as the first class action lawsuit is presented within the United States’ cannabis industry.

Brandon Flores and Brandie Lorrabee, both medical marijuana patients in the state of Colorado, are suing LivWell for their use of dangerous pesticides on their crops. LivWell is a large dispensary chain with 9 stores across the Denver area, and uses the pesticide Eagle 20 on their crops. While Eagle 20 is safe to use on crops like fruit, they are not allowed to be used on crops like tobacco due to the hydrogen cyanide gas they can produce, which is extremely toxic.

The lawsuit aims to end the use of this dangerous pesticide in growing operations, and also seeks compensation for health damages done because of the use of Eagle 20.

Just going onto the LivWell website, you can speak with a customer service representative and this is what they had to say to me:

“Testing of our finished product by an independent, state-licensed lab approved by the City of Denver showed that our products are safe. All of the substances used during cultivation are certified by the Organic Materials Research Institute.”

California’s Recreational Marijuana Law Would Allow Cannabis Cafés and No Stoned Driving Limit

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

The most highly anticipated marijuana initiative in California—perhaps even across the entire United States—was finally submitted earlier this week to the state attorney general. ReformCA, the financially endowed coalition working to legalize recreational marijuana in the Golden State during the 2016 election, recently announced that their proposal, the Control, Regulate, and Tax Cannabis Act of 2016, was simply waiting for the approval of state officials before they launched a mega-campaign that could change the course of prohibition for the entire nation.

“We believe this effort has the most statewide input and consensus, and thus the greatest likelihood of succeeding on the 2016 ballot,” Dale Sky with ReformCA said in a statement. “We engaged in extensive discussions with thousands of stakeholders across California, including community leaders, activists, elected officials, city and county employees and locals.” 

Running along the same vein as other initiatives that have been passed in America over the past few years, the ReformCA measure would establish a regulatory model for the cannabis trade, allowing adults 21 and over to purchase weed in a manner similar to way they do alcohol. It would also eliminate the criminal penalties for possession by allowing adults to hold up to an ounce of weed, while also permitting residents to grow up to 100 square feet of cannabis.
