Denver Cops Seizing Legal Marijuana At Airport Lost And Found
Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
OK, legal beagles, explain this one for me – how do Denver Cops legally justify seizing my less than one ounce of marijuana at the Denver Airport TSA Lost & Found?
Here’s the story: I went to the DPA Reform Conference in Denver. I had a small wooden stash box. In it was less than three grams of marijuana and a glass one-hitter. As I flew out of TSA, I accidentally left my stash box, as well as a small card wallet with my Oregon medical marijuana caregiver card in it and two travel pillows, at the TSA security station.
A fan read my lamentations over the situation and offered to pick up the stuff from DIA Lost & Found. I called ahead to a nice woman named Francine, who assured me my stuff had been turned in, it was all there. I let her know a friend would pick it up for me, she recorded my consent for the pickup, and all was well.
After I received the package from my fan this Saturday, I noticed a business card from Officer Dan H. Dietz of the Denver International Airport’s police taped to my stash box, which was empty.
So… it seems TSA found my stuff and turned it into lost and found, but Denver police seized my marijuana and one-hitter. Which, as I understand it, were both perfectly legal items to possess under Colorado’s constitution.
Today I called Officer Dietz and left a message, which was just returned by Officer Rick Stevens. He explained to me that TSA’s lost and found does not accept drugs, so Denver police had my marijuana and pipe, which I had to go pick up personally.
I asked, “Why is Denver police confiscating something from me that is perfectly legal under the Constitution.” He declined to get into the constitutionality of the situation and expressed that what Denver police had done was perfectly legal, without actually citing how.
He then asked me if I had a medical marijuana card. I responded that I do have a caregiver card in the state of Oregon, but my possession of marijuana in the state of Colorado requires no such card. I then explained how the stash box was an opaque, sealed item and wondered under what legal authority did Denver police open my stash box in order to seize something that is not contraband? The box size is so small there is no way I could have had more than an ounce in it; besides, they could have just weighed the box and even with the box weight, it wouldn’t have been over an ounce.

How To Make Ice Hash
Category: Concentrates | Posted on Tue, November, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
Ice extracts are a much safer way to obtain highly concentrated THC, rather than the "easier" butane method. Ice hash is clean and earthy, definitely something every stoner should try at some point. It's not as difficult to make as some people think. Here's a step by step tutorial on how to make ice hash yourself and get a good yield of some serious fire.
What You Need;
3/4oz marijuana (can be gross shake or high quality bud, either will work)
1/2 gallon milk jug
First, take the bud and put it in the coffee grinder, turning it in to a powder. Don't try to put all of it in at once. Grinding about 7 grams at a time usually works pretty well. Once all of the marijuana is ground up, carefully pour it in. Use a funnel of some sort to make sure that you get all of it. Then, take about 7-8 ice cubes and place them on a washcloth. Fold the top of the washcloth over and hit the cubes with the rubber mallet until they're almost powder. Pour that in to the milk jug as well. Next, add cold water to the jug, bringing the level of the substance 3/4" of an inch above where the marijuana level was.
Put the cap on the milk jug and shake it for 5 minutes, then put it in the freezer for 5 minutes. Repeat the shaking/freezing process two or three times. Now, grab the coffee filter and strain out all of the liquid in the jug. Make sure to get all of the liquid strained in to the bowl. With your freezer set to the highest setting, put the bowl of water in the freezer. Be very careful with it and try not to disturb it too much. The bowl should sit in the freezer for around 45 minutes, or until the fluid begins to form a delicate ice layer. It's also a good idea to tap the bowl lightly with a spoon. The trichomes are in the water and the most dense, heavy ones will fall to the bottom of the bowl.
After the liquid forms the thin layer of ice, remove the bowl from the freezer. Don't let the liquid swish around or you'll disturb the settled trichomes. Using a turkey baster or something similar, slowly remove the liquid from the bowl. This is a time consuming process because you can't disturb the settled matter at the bottom. Once the liquid gets down to a very low level, you can use paper towels to help absorb. After you've removed the liquid, take a hair dryer to the mixture, carefully drying it. The mixture should get lighter and be about the same color all the way around.
I'm sure that there are more complex ways to make ice hash but for those without access to better equipment, this is a pretty easy way for anyone to make their own ice hash and without a lot of bud. I hope that this method works for you! If you think you're method is better, let me know! Email your tricks to firstname.lastname@example.org!
