DEA Agent Was Told To Not Enforce Drug Laws In White Areas

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

jail prison daniel chong deaMany activists have pointed out over the years that the war on drugs is a war on minorities. That’s why black people are almost four times as likely to be arrested for marijuana compared to white people, even though consumption rates are about the same for both races. In many parts of America that ratio is even worse. An ex-DEA agent (named Matthew Fogg) recently did an interview in which he explained that he was told to only do drug enforcement in urban areas, and to avoid suburbs. Below is an excerpt of what he had to say, per Reader Supported News:

So when I would go into the war room, where we were setting up all of our drug and gun and addiction task force determining what cities we were going to hit, I would notice that most of the time it always appeared to be urban areas.

That’s when I asked the question, well, don’t they sell drugs out in Potomac and Springfield, and places like that? Maybe you all think they don’t, but statistics show they use more drugs out in those areas than anywhere. The special agent in charge, he says ‘You know, if we go out there and start messing with those folks, they know judges, they know lawyers, they know politicians. You start locking their kids up; somebody’s going to jerk our chain.’ He said, ‘they’re going to call us on it, and before you know it, they’re going to shut us down, and there goes your overtime.'”

Forget Powered Alcohol, Is Powdered Weed Next?

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, March, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

The same technology that allows you to store a mix drink in powdered form, works for THC as well. “Powdered alcohol,” as it's called, was first patented in 1972 but didn’t gain approval by the FDA until March 10, 2014.

Palcohol” takes advantage of a clever class of chemicals known as cyclodextrins. These cyclic structures of sugar molecules are known to absorb other compounds into the center of their rings. Like the Kirby of pharmacology, cyclodextrins absorb other molecules and adopt their power. A cyclodextrin can absorb up to 60% of its weight in alcohol; it maintains itself as a powder but if you dissolve it in water the alcohol gets released making an alcoholic drink.

Just as cyclodextrin can absorb the powers of booze, it can also absorb the powers of THC: experiments with THC-cyclodextrin complexes increase THC water solubility by 1000 times. THC can simply insert itself into the middle of a modified cyclodextrin complex, allowing it to be dissolve in water almost just as well as sugar on its own.

While “powdered alcohol” just facilitates people getting drunk more easily, when “powdered weed” hits the market it will be there to help victims of cancer, AIDS, MS and other debilitating illnesses that benefit from cannabinoids. THC’s poor water solubility makes it difficult to prescribe to patients who need a constant dosage. Stay tuned for the latest research updates on “powdered weed.”

Obama: If Enough States Decriminalize Marijuana, Congress May Change Federal Law

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

President Barack Obama said if enough states reform their marijuana laws, Congress may change federal law that continues to make the drug illegal.

Obama, during an interview with Vice Media co-founder Shane Smith released in full on Monday, said he's encouraged that liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans seem to agree that current U.S. marijuana laws don't make sense.

"We may be able to make some progress on the decriminalization side," Obama said. "At a certain point, if enough states end up decriminalizing, then Congress may then reschedule marijuana."

Last week, Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) introduced a bill that would reclassify marijuana from a Schedule I drug, which has high potential for abuse and no medical value, to a Schedule II drug, which has lower potential danger and recognized medical benefits. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia have decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. Twenty-three states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. Four states, as well as D.C., have legalized recreational marijuana.

"I'd separate out the issue of criminalization of marijuana from encouraging its use," Obama said. "I think there's no doubt that our criminal justice system, generally, is so heavily skewed towards cracking down on non-violent drug offenders that it has not just had a terrible effect on many communities -- particularly communities of color -- rendering a lot of folks unemployable because they got felony records, disproportionate prison sentences. It costs a huge amount of money to states and a lot of states are figuring that out.

"But what I'm encouraged by is you're starting to see not just liberal Democrats, but also some very conservative Republicans recognize this doesn't make sense -- including the libertarian wing of the Republican Party."
