Uncle Sam Offers $3 Million to First Person Who Can Cure Marijuana Addiction

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

Based on the ideology that millions of Americans are grossly addicted to marijuana, the federal government has approved $3 million to facilitate the fast-track creation of a pharmaceutical drug to treat this supposed scourge on public health.

According to a report in The Washington Times, “an estimated 4.2 million Americans are hooked on cannabis,” which has spawned a nervous desire by the National Institute on Drug Abuse to spend millions of tax dollars on the development of a medication which can turn zombie stoners back into productive members of civil society. 

“Cannabis use is an increasing public health concern in the United States that requires immediate attention," the drug agency stated in a proposal published earlier this month. "Given the high prevalence of marijuana use and its associated disorders and the large number of people who seek treatment, there is a critical need to discover and develop safe and effective treatments for CUDs,” otherwise referred to as Cannabis Use Disorders.

New Study: Honeybees Will Replace Drug-Sniffing Dogs

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, June, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

While the marijuana laws across the United States continue to change at an impressive rate—not to mention the advent of major drug overhauls in countries like Portugal and Uruguay—it has become increasingly more difficult for the soldiers of the drug war to use dope-sniffing dogs to effectively take down cartel mules trying to squeeze illegal narcotics into the black market.

However, a group of scientists believe they have found a solution to the diminishing K-9 narcotics infantry—honeybees that have been trained to detect illegal substances.

Researchers at the University of Cologne in Germany recently published a study in the journal Plos Oneentitled “Detection of Illicit Drugs by Trained Honeybees,” which details their success at pinpointing how insects will replace the drug-sniffing hounds of the world. The team began by testing the sniffer capabilities of three particular insects: the grapevine moth, the hissing cockroach and the western honeybee. Ironically, it was the honeybee that scientists determined was the best possible candidate for conducting drug stings because of its unprecedented ability to individually alert on every substance from cannabis to caffeine.

Missouri Drug Task Force Uses Misleading Statements To Double-Down On Its Rejection Of Transparency, Accountability

missouri marijuana decriminalization hb 512 testimony

On May 20, 2015, Show-Me Cannabis announced the latest in a series of lawsuits aimed at ensuring that Missouri’s multi-jurisdictional drug task forces must obey state laws that require transparency and accountability to the people. The case targets the MUSTANG Task Force, headquartered in Cole County and also operating in Boone, Callaway, and Cooper Counties, for its ongoing, unlawful refusal to properly respond to requests for open public records.

The records the Show-Me Cannabis requested included quarterly reports the task force is required to make to the Missouri Department of Safety; MUSTANG produced those documents but unlawfully redacted parts of them without identifying any statute authorizing the redactions. Show-Me Cannabis also requested minutes of public meetings of the Task Force’s Oversight Board as well as copies of the Memorandum of Understanding signed by participating members of the Task Force – all of which is, by definition, information open to the public.

Missouri’s open records law requires a custodian of records to provide an appropriate response within three days of receiving a request. Callaway County Sheriff Dennis Crane, however, simply ignored the requests, even after Show-Me Cannabis sent him a letter pointing out the statutory provisions that required Crane to respond.  Ultimately, Show-Me Cannabis had no choice but to sue Crane and the MUSTANG Task Force to force them to obey state law.
