Minnesota to become 22nd state to legalize medical marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
minnesota-22nd-state-to-legalize-medical-marijuanaIt took years, many false starts and a veto, but Minnesota medical marijuana advocates finally succeeded in getting a bill that’s on track to become law in a matter of days.
 
A broad bipartisan majority of state lawmakers in the Minnesota House of Representatives approved legislation to provide access to medical cannabis to improve the quality of life of Minnesotans with serious medical conditions on Friday. The bill passed by a vote of 89-40.
The Senate passed the same bill earlier Friday by a vote of 46-16. It now heads to Governor Mark Dayton, who says he will sign it into law.
 
The compromise bill, announced Thursday by the Dayton administration, state lawmakers and advocates, addresses the medical community’s desire for medical oversight and for gathering quality information about patients’ health impacts while accommodating the safety and security concerns of the law enforcement community.
 
“This year, Minnesota took an important step toward improving the quality of life of people with serious and terminal medical conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS and seizure disorders,” said Rep. David Bly (DFL-Northfield). “We forged a strong bipartisan compromise that provides relief to suffering children and adults while addressing concerns of law enforcement and the medical community.”
 
Bly believes the bill is a first step and can be improved upon in coming years after there is an opportunity to closely examine the research and outcomes − research, he says, that will help us better understand how and why medical cannabis can benefit patients.
Rice County Sheriff Troy Dunn said that although he was pleased that a compromise was finally reached, he was concerned that there would be too many distributors and about the potential for regulation difficulty.
 
“I like that they’re going to regulate the distributors. I’m also happy that they’re using the liquid extracts and taking the THC out and other things that have side effects,” Dunn said. “I just don’t want us to move too fast and have multiple distributors like Colorado did. I like Minnesota’s way of going about it cautiously. Also, I think it will be difficult to regulate people with a legal prescription who drive under the influence.”

Colorado Food Inspectors Are Cracking Down On Cannabis Edibles

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
mj-edibles-cracked-down-on
Cannabis edibles are harder to regulate than flower in some ways. Flower, if grown correctly, is easy to test for contaminants and potency. Cannabis edibles have more factors to consider. Since edibles also contain some cannabis flower, the issues that revolve around flower are present. But there are additional factors that are involved when creating cannabis edibles.
 
One factor, which is true of cooking/baking anything (cannabis or otherwise), is whether or not the edibles were prepared in a sanitary workspace. Creating the right dose is another thing that is tricky. One thing that a lot of people don’t take into consideration is calculating for food allergies. How does one properly store the edibles? And then there is of course the factor of making the edible appeasing to consumers taste buds.
 
As cannabis edibles continue to grow in availability and popularity, issues surrounding these types of businesses are also on the rise. Colorado food inspectors have been cracking down on cannabis edible companies and distributors that aren’t following the correct procedures. Per the Denver Post:
 
“Food safety inspections of businesses that manufacture and sell marijuana edibles in Denver have found products that should be refrigerated sitting out on shelves and preparation methods insufficient to kill bacteria that can cause serious food-borne illness.
 
The unannounced visits by the Denver Department of Environmental Health have led to three product recalls and the destruction of tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of products.”
 
If you are a cannabis edible company, or are thinking of starting a cannabis edible company, then you are aware that there is a greater need for rules and regulations in this sector of the cannabis industry. Customers want to know that the products they are buying are safe. The general public wants to know that cannabis edible companies are following proper food handling practices. Right now all eyes are on Colorado, and everything has to be done right in order for the industry to spread and flourish inside and outside of Colorado.

Marijuana Sizzurp Hits the L.A. Market

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
mj-sizzurp
The real sizzurp doesn't make you stupid enough, right? So what you really need is a marijuana-infused sizzurp, yeah?
 
Your prayers have been answered, Justin Bieber, because a Southern California company has combined your (alleged) two favorite things, THC and lean, into one, groundbreaking product. Well, sort of.
 
"Grape Syzurp with Cannabidnoids" by Actabliss has just hit the L.A. market:
 
But it doesn't actually contain the codeine known as one of the main ingredients in the real sizzurp. This Syzurp is all about the THC and cannabinoids.
 
This week the product was delivered to Los Angeles for its first medical marijuana retail sales here, says Actabliss' founder, who wants to be known only by the nickname Actaboss. 
 
The product was formulated early this year, unveiled to the public one month ago on April 20 (a.k.a. 420) via free samples, and finally sold to the public about a week after that at GreenWorks in Actabliss' hometown of San Diego, he said.
 
The idea is not to recreate the buzz of sizzurp and lean but to create an alternative. Actaboss:
After Actavis [the maker of the prescription promethazine codeine syrup popular with rappers] said they were pulling their stuff from the market, I came up with the concept of taking their label and using it.
 
I touted it as a healthy alternative to lean. A lot of people who say they want to stop drinking lean are purchasing it. A whole group of people realize it's good medicine and it works for them.
The product has created some controversy. Some critics don't like using sizzurp imagery for a product that doesn't contain codeine or other lean-like drugs. Others think it glorifies a drug that has become problematic for some in the rap world.
 
While Actabliss doesn't do what sizzurp does, Actaboss says that lean users are liking its high, purple color and gooey consistency. He said that while a $45, 2 ounce bottle can be split into two doses and mixed with soda, some customers have tried the whole 2 ounces:
purple-mj-sizzurp
 
They said it lasts 10 hours and gets them heavily medicated with that syrup feeling. It's sedated and relaxing. It's not just some lean knock off. The medicinal side outweighs how close can we get this to real lean side. When I formulated it I did try to make it thick and muddy. We're using big pharma to promote a healthy alternative to big pharma.
