California Patients To File Lawsuit Over New Medical Marijuana Regulation And Safety Act

california capital marijuanaThe American Medical Marijuana Association (AMMA) has announced that it is filing a lawsuit over the violation of Prop. 215 by the California Legislature and Governor Brown. The recent adoption of the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act attempts to modify a voter initiative, Prop. 215, something specifically forbidden by the California constitution.

“Our medical cannabis rights, protected for nearly 20 years by Prop. 215, have been hijacked and Prop. 215 is under attack like never before. The new law is an unacceptable and illegal infringement on our rights under Prop. 215,” said Steve Kubby, Executive Director of AMMA.

Kubby listed four areas that were of the greatest concern to patients and their physicians:

1. Patient gardens now limited to 100 square feet.
2. It is now a crime to share a joint from your garden with anyone.
3. Must now use your regular doctor for recommendations, most of whom have no experience with the medical use of cannabis
4. Allows city, county or both to ban cultivation, storage, manufacture, and transport.

“I’m getting calls from frightened patients who fear their own state government is planning on going after cannabis doctors as if they are some sort of dangerous threat that must be carefully supervised. Sick people cannot handle this kind of stress. Thousands of patients will die because of this calculated attempt to thwart the will of the people and deprive them of medical cannabis and the doctors who write recommendations to use the healing herb,” added Kubby.

Hashish Mega-Haul in Pakistan Points to New Production Zone

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

Last week, Pakistan's Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) announced the seizure of a huge shipment of hashish, weighing 3.37 metric tons and said to be destined for international markets.

An ANF unit carried out the raid in a remote area of the Balochistan province, apparently acting on a tip. The raid targeted what was called a "desolate site" in the Qilla Abdullah district, along the border of Afghanistan. The stash was reportedly stuffed in plastic bags at a hidden location.

Pakistani news accounts (e.g. the International News and Pakistan Today) actually referred to the seized substance as "hashish (Garda)," which is a slight contradiction.

Hashish is properly known as charas in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India, while garda is Pashto for "dust"—meaning the unrefined resin shaken from the cannabis buds (what is known in North Africa as kif).

So presumably, this stash was yet to be refined into hashish and was produced locally rather than having been smuggled across the border from Afghanistan. This points to Pakistan emerging as a major producer of hashish for export, as opposed to just a transfer country for Afghan product.

LAS VEGAS -- The Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended UFC welterweight Nick Diaz for five years on Monday because of the third marijuana-related offense of his career.

The NSAC discussed a lifetime ban for Diaz, 32, before voting unanimously on five years.

NSAC commissioner Skip Avansino acknowledged during deliberations a five-year ban is essentially "a lifetime (ban) for (Diaz)."

Diaz (26-9) appeared before the commission in person but declined to answer any of its questions. Commissioner Pat Lundvall forced Diaz to verbally plead the fifth throughout a long series of approximately 30 questions.
