Authorities: ‘Godfather of Grass’ Arrested in Canada

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a man known as the “Godfather of Grass” has been arrested in Canada after eight years on the run.

The U.S. Marshals Service says authorities sought John Robert “Johnny” Boone after they seized 2,400 marijuana plants on his Kentucky farm. The agency said he was arrested Thursday when information led authorities to a small town outside of Montreal.

Boone, who is about 73, spent more than a decade in federal prison after being convicted in the 1980s in what prosecutors called the “largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history.” They said he had 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin. The group became known as the “Cornbread Mafia,” and prosecutors said Boone was the leader.

Boone is awaiting extradition to the U.S.

Many consumers go into a buying frenzy around the holidays, and traditional retailers aren’t the only businesses that notice an uptick in sales during this time of year.  This is simply proof of why cannabis is better off in a regulated system since more people actually seek cannabis products out as gifts for people who they know it would be just right for.

Randa Shahin, owner/operator of Homegrown Apothecary in Portland, OR, said, “Business grows around the holidays…primarily with edibles and vape products because people need a discreet way to put up with their families. There is also an increase because of gift giving ideas.”

How a 1 Billion Marijuana Company is Preparing For Legal Weed In Canada

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

VICE News gets an exclusive look inside Canopy Growth Corp., the Canadian marijuana producer that calls itself the world’s largest legal weed company.

So far the company has only been allowed to sell to medical patients, but that will all change when prime minister Justin Trudeau makes good on his promise to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes in the Spring of 2017.

 

That’s especially good news for Canopy, which has been gearing up for the recreational market for years, even though the government hasn’t yet even unveiled its legalization plan. This year, its subsidiary Tweed announced a partnership with Snoop Dogg, and it became the first weed company to list on a major stock exchange. Since then, its stock price has rocketed upwards, and they’ve been evaluated at upwards of $1 billion, making them the first Canadian pot company to reach that mark.
