New Zealand Stoners Are Facing a Pot Shortage

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Along with the U.S., New Zealand regularly appears at the top of various global rankings of cannabis consumption. But our stoner friends down under are dealing with an unfortunate situation: There's a dire shortage of marijuana.

Earlier this month, police recovered 9,000 plants in an annual aerial operation, which affected both outdoor and indoor grows. Reporting for the Spinoff, one local writer described the situation as "catastrophic.”

"The bust is another blow for a nation already in drought," the story reads. "Marijuana, easily New Zealand’s most popular illegal substance, is almost unobtainable in any meaningful amount right now. Blame it on the police, the gangs, the weather or just the grow cycle of your average cannabis harvest; no matter which way you slice it, it’s dry out there."

Utah Congressman Introduces Bill To Protect Medical Marijuana Patients Using CBD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Congressman Jason Chaffetz medical marijuana cbdToday, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) introduced H.R. 4779, the CBD Oil Act of 2016, which would bar prosecution of individuals who use cannabidiol (CBD) oil for medical purposes as permitted by existing state law. Fifteen states, including Utah, have passed legislation permitting use of CBD oil for medicinal purposes. This legislation is supported by Utah Governor Gary Herbert.

Chaffetz: ”The use of CBD oil to treat epilepsy, cancer, and other intractable diseases has been successful for many patients including children. Patients who qualify to receive treatment should not have to fear prosecution by the federal government. States have taken the lead on this issue and the federal government should follow.”

Gov. Herbert: “I support Rep. Chaffetz in his effort to alleviate the fear that many Utah families face over conflicting state and federal laws regarding cannabis oil. This legislation resolves that concern by respecting decisions made at the local level.”

CBD oil is a naturally occurring substance derived from cannabis and, as a Schedule I substance, it falls under the definition of “marihuana” in the Controlled Substances Act. Consequently, the purchase or possession of the substance could subject a patient to federal prosecution. This bill defers to states on the legality of prescribed medicinal CBD oil use.

Oregon Health Authority’s Marijuana Extract Policy Hurts Patients That Are Suffering The Most

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

dabs concentrates extracts bho shatterShock waves were sent throughout the Oregon medical marijuana world this week when the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) issued a directive to medical marijuana dispensary operators to no longer accept cannabis extracts. Cannabis extracts are defined by OHA as involving heat and pressure during the creation process. That means no BHO and no CO2 products. No more shatter. No more cartridges. At least not in the near future.

Only entities that have a license to produce extracts are considered legal by OHA. The problem of course being that there aren’t any licenses currently. In fact, the application process doesn’t even start until next month for OHA. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will regulate recreational marijuana, which will eventually have its own licenses for extracts. But as of right now there are no licenses issued in the State of Oregon. So when will licenses be issued? Per Oregon Live:

The health authority plans to roll out a licensing process for commercial extract companies, but André Ourso, manager of the state’s medical marijuana program, said Tuesday that the application won’t be online until April 1.

Applying, he said, is just the beginning of a “long process” for getting registered. In all, he said the process could take “a few months.”
