Iowa man with terminal cancer to be sentenced Tuesday for growing pot

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
prison-for-cancer-patient-growing-cannabisAn Iowa man convicted of growing marjuana, which he says he used to treat his terminal cancer, is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday afternoon.
 
Benton Mackenzie, 48, who holds an Oregon medical marijuana card, faces up to three years in prison, reports Brian Wellner, a Quad-City Times staff writer who has closely followed Mackenzie's case. Mackenzie's wife and son also face sentencing Tuesday.
 
Mackenzie's supporters are expected to rally at the Scott County Courthouse before the hearing. 
 
Mackenzie, who lives in a rural community outside of Davenport, traveled with his family to Oregon in July so he could obtain medical marijuana. Oregon allows out-of-state residents to obtain medical marijuana cards.
 
In June 2013, the local sheriff’s office raided Mackenzie’s grow site at his parents’ home, seizing 71 plants, and arresting Mackenzie, his wife Loretta and their grown son. Benton and Loretta Mackenzie were on probation from a previous marijuana-related conviction when Mackenzie said he decided to grow pot again.
 
Both were convicted in July of drug felonies stemming from the grow operation.
 
During his visit, Mackenzie told The Oregonian that he used the plants to make the potent marijuana concentrate, butane hash oil, known as BHO. He said he used the oil, which is made with a flammable solvent that extracts THC and other cannabinoids from marijuana flowers and leaves, as the main treatment for his cancer.
 
He has refused chemotherapy, which he said has a 50 percent success rate when it comes to angiosarcoma, the cancer he has. He feared the treatment would compromise a heart condition from which he also suffers.

Denver To Ban Unlicensed Dab Making

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
denver-to-ban-dab-makingI have always said that butane hash oil (BHO) making should be left to the pros. There is too much crappy dabs out there right now for one, and it’s a public safety issue for two. I think that people that know what they are doing should be allowed to make BHO at home, but unfortunately, amateurs are ruining that right with every apartment explosion that occurs. Working with a dangerous material like butane is not something that every average Joe should be doing. Only people that can follow strict safety protocols should be allowed to make BHO.
 
In the City of Denver, a ban is being proposed due to the increasing amount of idiots that are hurting themselves and others with BHO explosions. It’s a sad thing, because most of the best BHO makers in Denver are not a licensed processor. This is going to be a classic case of a handful of idiots ruining everything for everyone else. Per Marijuana Business Daily:
 
Denver is looking to ban residents from using explosive chemicals to create homemade hash oil, a move that could drive more consumers to dispensaries and recreational cannabis stores.
 
Mayor Michael Hancock has proposed an addition to city codes that would “prohibit the hazardous solvent-based extraction process by which individuals directly and indirectly involved are subjected to dangerous conditions,” according to a press release issued by his office today.
 
This should serve as a learning moment for people that don’t live in Denver and make BHO. Leave BHO production to people that know what they are doing. If you are trying to make BHO on the stove in your one bedroom apartment, chances are you are operating in a ticking time bomb. For the sake of your own safety, and the safety of those around you, turn your stove off, dispose of your BHO making ‘equipment’, and head to the store to buy some BHO. The BHO you end up consuming will be better, and everyone will be safer.

The N.F.L.s Absurd Marijuana Policy

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, September, 9th 2014 by THCFinder

LOS ANGELES — VIRTUALLY every single player in the N.F.L. has a certifiable need for medical marijuana.
 
The game we celebrate creates a life of daily pain for those who play it. Some players choose marijuana to manage this pain, which allows them to perform at a high level without sacrificing their bodies or their minds.
 
I medicated with marijuana for most of my career as a tight end from 2003 through 2008. And I needed the medication. I broke my tibia, dislocated my shoulder, separated both shoulders, tore my groin off the bone once and my hamstring off the bone twice, broke fingers and ribs, tore my medial collateral ligament, suffered brain trauma, etc. Most players have similar medical charts. And every one of them needs the medicine.
 
Standard pain management in the N.F.L. is pain pills and pregame injections. But not all players favor the pill and needle approach. In my experience, many prefer marijuana. The attitude toward weed in the locker room mirrors the attitude in America at large. It’s not a big deal. Players have been familiar with it since adolescence, and those who use it do so to offset the brutality of the game. The fact that they made it to the N.F.L. at all means that their marijuana use is under control.
 
Had marijuana become a problem for me, it would have been reflected in my job performance, and I would have been cut. I took my job seriously and would not have allowed that to happen. The point is, marijuana and excellence on the playing field are not mutually exclusive.
 
A good example is Josh Gordon, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver who led the league last year with 1,646 receiving yards, despite missing two games for testing positive for codeine (for a strep throat, he said). He was suspended again late last month for the entire season after testing positive for marijuana. (At least five others were also suspended last year and this year for marijuana, according to the magazine Mother Jones.)
 
Most players are tested once a year under the N.F.L.’s substance abuse policy, between April 20 and Aug. 9. But players who test positive for a banned drug are placed in the league’s substance abuse program, where the testing is more frequent. It is in this probationary program that players tend to falter.
 
Gordon had marijuana in his system. He broke the rules. I understand that. But this is a rule that absurdly equates marijuana with opiates, opioids and PCP. The N.F.L.’s threshold for disciplinary action for marijuana is 10 times higher than the one used by the International Olympic Committee.
