Will Guatemala Legalize Marijuana In 2015?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
guatemalan-mj-legalizationOne of my favorite places I’ve ever visited is Guatemala. I went there on a ten day missionary trip in 2009, and it’s a trip that will forever be in my heart. The people there were so nice and the country was so beautiful. I love fresh fruit, and I’m not that tall, and there’s fresh fruit everywhere there and everyone’s my height. But despite it’s beauty and amazing citizens, Guatemala is very poor. Guatemala is also plagued by the same problems that come with marijuana prohibition that other countries in Latin and South America face. Cartel operations are all over the place, and there’s a lot of misery as a result.
 
It’s time that Guatemala changed it’s marijuana policies to help defeat cartels, and help improve the economics of the country. It sounds like 2015 might be the year for that. Per teleSUR:
 
In an exclusive interview with teleSUR, Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina said that his government would follow the example of Uruguay by taking a decision on legalizing marijuana in early 2015.
 
Guatemala would greatly benefit from marijuana legalization. Like I said, there is a strong cartel presence in the country, and legalizing marijuana would no doubt hurt those cartels. Jobs are very much needed in Guatemala, and a booming marijuana industry would bring many jobs no doubt. Local economies in Guatemala would thrive. The climate in Guatemala is ripe for marijuana farms, which would instantly make Guatemala a leader in the global marijuana market.

Medical Marijuana Patient Stabbed & Charged With Possession

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-posession-chargedOn October 8th of 2013, Scott Waselik, 24 was stabbed in his home by his roommate, Kevin Rios, 22. Suffering a stab wound to the chest, Waselik managed to drive his car to the police station in his town of Sparta, New Jersey, and tell the police about the attack. Reluctantly, Waselik gave his address to police in order to get custody of his roommate. While Waselik was transported to the hospital for treatment, police headed to his house. When the cops arrived at the house, the saw Rios standing near his car, with a bag of cannabis in the open trunk, the report said. After cuffing Rios, one of the officers at the scene went in to the house to “clear” it and saw more marijuana and paraphernalia. After leaving the scene and coming back with a warrant, cops returned and seized the plant and the paraphernalia.
 
 
Both Waselik and Rios had cards, allowing them to consume the plant in allowance with their state’s law. The police, however, said that the marijuana found wasn’t from a state approved dispensary, as is required by the law in New Jersey. Waselik, a patient who suffers from Crohn’s disease, wasn’t even given a chance to defend himself before being slapped with the possession charge. For the last year, he has been arguing his case that he had a right to have the marijuana found in his home.
 
 
On Friday, Waselik caught a break and the judge hearing the case did him a huge favor. The judge ruled that the police had no authority to enter the house in the first place. Which means that both the cannabis (totaling at 74 grams) and the paraphernalia can’t be used as evidence. But the judge ruled that the police had no emergency need to enter the house, seeing as how Rios was already in custody and Waselik was on his way to the hospital. 
 
 
Targeting a medical marijuana patient is a low blow by the police. With the judge throwing out the evidence of the plant and the paraphernalia, Waselik will be able to consume his marijuana in peace. As a patient dealing with Crohn’s, he is definitely someone would could benefit from using the plant as a medicine. Those patients that need the plant should not be targeted, especially when they are complying with the laws regarding possession.

Mango - Indica

Mango - Indica

Mangos parentage is part KC 33 and part Mango from a hippie fellow who grew it for 30 years, then let KC use it as a cross in 1991. It is a 100 percent indica strain that grows large and produces prodigiously. Dont let Mangos slow start fool you - this variety will eventually rival the impressive size of many KC varieties, which are especially intended for outdoor grows. If you want Mango to stay at an average size in an outdoor garden, allow only 3 weeks of vegetative time and transplant outdoors as late as July in Northern latitudes. Mango can also be grown in an indoor garden, but needs a lot of space.

Hempstalk Permit Denied For 2015

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, November, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
hempstalk-permit-deniedWere you planning on attending Hempstalk in Oregon next year? Might have to rethink your plans unfortunately, as the Portland parks officials have denied the permit of Hempstalk Festival for 2015. Not only did the officials deny the permit, they waited until the day after Oregon’s vote to join Colorado and Washington in legal cannabis for recreational users. The park officials sent a letter the Paul Stanford the day after the vote. The letter said that Stanford couldn’t organize Hempstalk at Tom McCall Waterfront Park or any other public property.
 
 
Even though Hempstalk has previously been held in Portland, city officials stated that past years of the event haven’t been organized well. The disorganization they’re referring to means that attendees were smoking cannabis and the organizers of the event were unable or unwilling to intervene. On Wednesday, Shawn Rogers, the Parks Bureau customer service center, wrote that the denial of the permit stems from the inability of those organizing the event to manage it in accordance with the necessary condition that are clearly outlined for such an event. 
 
 
Lax rules at Hempstalk may end up being it’s downfall, as the city had people go to Hempstalk in order to see how things were going. Previously, the event had been held at Kelley Point Park in North Portland. Officials that attended said that there was a serious problem controlling those in the crowd that were smoking. Not only that but when Rogers himself attended the event, he heard speakers from the main stage telling attendees to go outside the front gates in order to smoke weed. Rogers said that the smoke was so thick, “I actually felt like I was at risk of getting high.”
 
 
Rogers and the other parks officials made sure to say that the denial of the Hempstalk 2015 permit isn’t a stab at the marijuana community in general. It’s more so about the ability of those who put on the event, as they previously haven’t followed the guidelines that the parks officials request. “There’s no reason why an event can’t be done legally, lawfully, and well managed,” Rogers said. It is nice to smoke marijuana at an event that’s related to the plant. But is it worse to not smoke or to just not have the event at all? 
 
 
“We intend to seek a writ of review,” Lawyer Ann Witte said in an email. “We will ask the court to stop the city cousin review until our case is heard in court."
