Hemp Research Bill Heads To New Mexico Governor's Desk

federal farm bill hemp amendment researchHemp reform is sweeping the country, with almost every state in America either allowing it now, or exploring the idea of allowing hemp cultivation in one form or another. New Mexico is on the list of states that are on the verge of passing hemp reform, albeit for research purposes. Both chambers of New Mexico’s Legislature have signed off on the hemp research bill, and the legislation now goes to New Mexico’s Governor where it’s expected to be signed into law. Per New Mexico Political Report:

A bill that would allow research into the growth of industrial hemp passed the House and is now headed to the governor’s desk.

The House passed the bill on wide bipartisan vote, 54-12.

There was very little debate on the bill that would allow New Mexico State University and the state Department of Agriculture to grow hemp for research purposes.

Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, D-Albuquerque, carried the bill on the floor. He had carried a similar bill on the House side.

“This is strictly research and development,” Maestas said.

Even thought this bill is just for research purposes, I’m confident that it will lead to full legalization. I can’t fathom what their research would turn up that would stop that from eventually happening. Hemp is a very versatile plant, and I can’t wait to see what is learned from the research that will eventually be conducted in New Mexico.

GOP medical marijuana bill has oils, legal growing

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Marijuana legally grown, processed and given for treatment at the recommendation of a doctor in Tennessee could become a reality if lawmakers approve a new Republican-led initiative.

The chances of changing current law aren't fantastic: Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, put the odds of the General Assembly approving his limited medical marijuana plan this year at "50-50, plus or minus 5 percent." The anesthesiologist argues the science behind the need for medical cannabis oil is more concrete.

"The data is improving every day. I've read 50, 60 papers and abstracts, and it looks like 60 percent plus of those have some sort of beneficial effect," Dickerson said.

Dickerson considers the approach he's taking with Rep. Ryan Williams, R-Cookeville, as targeted. The bill goes further than a cannabis oil bill sponsored by Rep. Jeremy Faison, R-Cosby, but stops short of Nashville Democratic Rep. Sherry Jones' medical marijuana bill.

The proposal would allow a very specific type of medicinal marijuana oil that is low in THC, the psychoactive ingredient that makes marijuana popular for people who want to get high. The oil could be ingested, used through a skin cream or potentially inhaled using a nebulizer, Dickerson said.

A person would have to receive a recommendation from a doctor — it's listed as a Schedule I drug federally, which means it can't be prescribed like other medicine — and take it to a dispensary, which would use oil that comes from plants grown and processed in Tennessee.

Snoop Dogg Dishes on Getting High with Willie Nelson

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, March, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Snoop Dogg has cleaned up his image from gangster rapper to multi-format entertainer, but he's looking to the past in a new series he's developing for HBO.

Snoop announced Friday—when he was giving the keynote address at South by Southwest—that he's working with Allen Hughes on the show about 1980s Los Angeles.

Snoop, a former gangster rapper, was born in Long Beach, California. Hughes' credits include "Dead Presidents," "Menace II Society" and "The Book of Eli."

"HBO is the number one network in the world as far as developing and having these types of shows come to life," he said. "This is a dream come true to be able to tell a story that's going to be told the right way on the right network."

In a wide-ranging interview Friday with his manager Ted Chung in Austin, Texas, 43-year-old Snoop discussed topics from getting high with Willie Nelson to meeting Dr. Dre.

Here's a breakdown:

BEING BAKED AND EATING FRIED CHICKEN

The chicken was fried, but Snoop and Willie Nelson were baked.

Snoop and Nelson collaborated on the song "My Medicine" and he said "it was love at first sight."

"We went in the green room, had a conversation and from there the conversation sparked up the idea of—yeah sparked up the idea of—me and Willie wanting to collaborate," he said as the audience at the Austin Convention Center burst into laughter.
