DEA cracks down on 11 pot dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, May, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
Cease-and-desist letters were sent to eleven Seattle area pot dispensaries because they are within 1,000 feet of schools or other  prohibited areas, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
 
The DEA would not identify the businesses or their precise locations. Spokeswoman Jodie Underwood said they are in the greater Seattle area.
 
Despite Washington state’s new legal recreational pot law, enacted by voter-approved Initiative 502, all forms of marijuana remain illegal under federal law. A policy statement from the Obama administration is supposedly coming on the new legal pot laws in Colorado and Washington.
 
Underwood said the 11 dispensaries received the same letters that went to 23 local dispensaries last August. She said the letters, dated April 29, did not have implications for Washington and Colorado’s new laws.
 
“DEA enforces federal drug laws and these letters have nothing to do with any pending legislation or state law.  The ballot initiatives in both states are under review by DOJ,” she said.
 
The letters warned dispensary operators and landlords that the pot businesses appear to be within 1,000 feet of a prohibited area, which tend to be places such as schools and playgrounds frequented by youth. The DEA told recipients of the letter to stop distributing marijuana within 30 days or face property seizure and forfeiture.
 
“As we continue to identify locations, additional letters will be sent out,” Underwood said.
 
The DEA sent letters to 63 dispensaries in Orange County, California last week. But a Department of Justice spokesman and California marijuana activists saw those actions as part of a continuing crackdown in Orange County rather than a signal of new federal policy in Colorado and Washington.
 
Last week a DOJ spokeswoman in Washington, D.C. responded to questions about legal pot with a terse statement: “The legalization initiatives in Washington and Colorado are still under review by the Department.”

Green Crack

Category: Nugs | Posted on Wed, May, 1st 2013 by THCFinder

Green Crack - Sativa

Green Crack was originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s with the birth name of Cush. It was later renamed "Green Crack" by none other than Snoop Dogg because of its extreme potency and the crave to keep smoking it. Green Crack is extremely popular in Southern California with both medical marijuana patients for its strong sativa effects, and recreational users who love its sweet taste and happy high. Green Crack has a medium-green color punctuated with orange and bluish hairs. It has a tangy, fruity smell (thus the nickname "Mango") and the taste is sweet as well. There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica. The better known phenom is the sativa dominant strain, and the only sign of indica genetics being present are the tight nugs.

ANN ARBOR: Local lawmaker aims to decriminalize marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
State Rep. Jeff Irwin, an Ann Arbor Democrat, last week called for action on a bill that would decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana.
 
House Bill 4623 would make possession of one ounce or less a civil infraction and would create a stepped fine based on whether the violation is a first, second or third offense. Under current law possession is classified as a misdemeanor with heavy fines and jail time.
 
“Michigan spends an estimated $326 million a year on arresting, trying, and imprisoning people for marijuana offenses,” Irwin said, “yet such policies have proven remarkably ineffective in achieving their purpose of preventing marijuana use.”
 
According to a recent poll from the Pew Research Center, 72 percent of Americans believe enforcing current marijuana laws costs more than its worth.
 
“Using police, courts, and corrections officials to prosecute marijuana ‘crimes’ while murders, rapes and burglaries go unsolved is a tremendous waste of resources in a state that can’t afford to misprioritize its assets right now,” said Neill Franklin, a retired state police major and executive director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. “This bill is a sensible first step toward a more humane and just criminal justice system in Michigan.”

All competitors at UFC on FUEL TV 9 were tested for performance-enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse, and one failed for the latter.
 
The UFC confirmed Tuesday night that featherweight Robbie Peralta was flagged for marijuana metabolites and suspended following the event, which took place April 6 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.
 
Peralta (16-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) dropped a unanimous decision to Akira Corassani (11-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) on the event's main-card, which aired on FUEL TV.
 
"The UFC organization has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents," the UFC's statement read.
 
Peralta is suspended six months retroactive to the event. Additionally, he has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will be required to pass a drug test prior to his reinstatement, according to the statement. The negative drug test will be reported to the Association of Boxing Commissions.
