Former Mexican Cartel Head and El Chapo Associate Gets Life for Drug Smuggling
WASHINGTON (AP) — A once-powerful Mexican drug cartel leader and associate of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been sentenced to life in a U.S. prison.
Alfredo Beltran Leyva, 46, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in February to charges his multibillion-dollar operation smuggled tons of cocaine and methamphetamine into the United States. Beltran Leyva led the organization from the 1990s to his indictment in 2014, as it shipped tons of cocaine from South America to the United States, prosecutors said.
Authorities called him a “Goliath” of drug trafficking. A judge ordered him to forfeit more than $529 million, based on what he described as a conservative estimate of the amount of cocaine Beltran Leyva brought into the United States.
Beltran Leyva led a “campaign of violence and fear that gripped communities across North America,” acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco said.
Out Cold scene-How to beat a drug test
Great White Shark (Sativa)
The Great White Shark marijuana strain is one that is super potent and provides a very powerful narcotic effect. It's serious medicine with clinically-tested THC levels of 14.85% and CBD levels of just 0.22%. When you toke it, GWS will quickly take over your mind and make you feel heavy of body. The taste, when cured properly, is semi-sweet and smooth; not the type that expands a million times over and then makes you gag until your lungs revolt!
5 Drug-Developing Marijuana Stocks You Need to Know
Marijuana stocks, and the marijuana industry, for that matter, are on fire. The reason most marijuana stocks have doubled, tripled, or perhaps gone up by even more over the past year has to do with the changing tide in the public's opinion toward cannabis.
According to national pollster Gallup, 60% of Americans as of 2016 support the idea of legalizing pot across the country, which is more than double the approval rate from two decades prior. A similar poll from Quinnipiac University showed 59% support for a nationwide legalization and only 36% opposition to such a move.
Royal Kush (Hybrid)
Royal Kush, a cross between the famous Skunk #1 and oh-so-potent Afghani, is an Indica-dominant strain favored by patients with such ailments as insomnia, loss of appetite, pain relief, inflammation, nausea and anxiety. This bud appears to be infested with sticky tri-chromes, with orange and electric-white pistils. It also has a pungently danky, fruity, skunky and earthy aroma.
California Extract Company Gives Free Pot to Cancer Patients
Non-profit and community programs often spring up when there’s a gap to fill, and with the cannabis industry as young as it is, there are still a lot of gaps.
Shelter from the Storm, a project launched by Jetty Extracts, is doing what it can to fill the cannabis treatment gap.
Jetty, an Oakland-based extract company, launched the Shelter Project to provide free medicinal cannabis oil and other services to California cancer patients who register with the program.
From pretty early on in the process, it was clear that philanthropy should be incorporated into the business model, said Matt Lee, co-founder of Jetty Extracts. They began by giving oil to people they knew who were suffering from different ailments which would benefit from cannabis as a treatment plan. Soon after that, they realized they wanted to expand to all of California.
