Detroit Is Drafting Medical Marijuana Dispensary Regulations

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

detroit marijuanaThe current state of medical marijuana dispensaries in Michigan reminds me a lot of how things were in Oregon before the Oregon Legislature passed medical marijuana dispensary regulations in 2013. Medical marijuana dispensaries have existed for quite awhile now in Michigan, just as they did in Oregon well before 2013. Medical marijuana dispensaries are here to stay in Michigan, which is something that city leaders in Detroit seem to be recognizing because it sounds like they are drafting rules to regulate such establishments. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

Detroit officials are finalizing a draft of proposed regulations on the city’s dispensaries, which continue to pop up like dandelions even though they are technically illegal under state law.

Councilman James Tate said he’s putting final touches on an ordinance to govern the city’s growing number of unregulated dispensaries amid concerns that the businesses are fostering violence and engaging in unscrupulous activities.

Proposed regulations in an early draft would require dispensaries to become licensed by the city and locate at least 2,000 feet away from a school, daycare, city recreation center, library or museum. They would also have to be at least 1,000 feet from other dispensaries.

Can Someone Fail A Drug Test For Simply Touching Marijuana?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, September, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana jointEveryone knows that a person can fail a drug test for consuming marijuana. A lot of people are surprised to find out that you can also fail a drug test for being around too much second hand marijuana smoke (for an article about that, click this link here). A scientific study was recently conducted which found that even breaking up marijuana can result in a failed drug test. Per Culture Magazine:

A recent study conducted in Germany proves that even something as simple as breaking up cannabis and having residue on your fingers can cause a failed drug test.

This study was conducted by the University of Freiburg. The science behind the idea was simple: ten participants had to role one joint a day, and take a urine test every day. The study showed that by the middle of the study, most of those involved tested positive for THCA and THC, and four weeks after the test, the THC levels were still noticeable when hair was tested. This means that a month after touching cannabis, you can still test positive in some ways for the substance.

It takes quite a bit of marijuana handling to fail a drug test, but it is definitely possible, as proven by this case study. This is very significant for people that work in the cannabis industry, but think they can still pass a drug test because they don’t consume marijuana. People that are on probation or are required to be involved in some type of diversion program are who I think of off the top of my head. If you handle marijuana too much, you will absorb THC via your hands. Moral of the story – make sure to wear quality gloves if you have a need to handle a lot of cannabis but also need to pass a drug test.

First legal harvest of marijuana fueling gray market for pot in U.S. capital

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

In upper Northwest Washington, marijuana buds the size of zucchinis hang drying in a room once reserved for yoga. In the Shaw neighborhood, pot grown in a converted closet sits meticulously trimmed, weighed and sealed in jars. Elsewhere, from Georgetown to Capitol Hill to Congress Heights, seven-leafed weeds are flowering in bedrooms, back yards and window boxes.

Welcome to the first crop of legal pot in the nation’s capital — where residents may grow and possess marijuana but are still forbidden to sell it.

In recent weeks, a small army of mostly novice gardeners who took up growing when the District legalized marijuana in February have begun to roll, pack and smoke the joints, bongs and bowls of their labor. By one estimate, they have collectively grown upward of 100 pounds with a street value north of a ­half-million dollars — far more than most of these amateur cultivators are likely to consume on their own.
