Grocery Store Accidentally Receives a Large Shipment of Pot

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, April, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

When Brooklyn neighborhood website CrownHeights.info reported on April 1 that a kosher grocery store in the Jewish enclave had received in the mail 10 bags of cannabis hidden in vacuum-sealed plastic containers of peanut butter—well, we thought it was an April Fool joke.

But the website's source was the previous day's New York Post, and it actually looks pretty legit.

The grocery, Kahan's Superette on Kingston Ave., apparently reported the find to the police.

"Wrong delivery address results in the seizure of 10 large bags of marijuana wrapped in peanut butter," the 71st Precinct tweeted, along with a photo of the gooey mess.

"I have no idea where it came from. It was just dropped off," a worker at the store told the Post.

The store sells such fare as kosher chicken, bagels, cream cheese and fresh salmon, according to itsFacebook page. Nobody seems to have asked if Kahan’s had ordered a shipment of peanut butter.

CrownHeights.info reported that a similar incident occurred at a different Kingston Ave. shop—Crown Kosher Meat—almost exactly two years ago, when the owner received a Fed Ex delivery of over 25 pounds of "distribution grade marijuana."

Crown Heights is a neighborhood where orthodox Jews and Afro-Caribbeans co-exist—for the most part peacefully, though the neighborhood was the site of violent riots in 1991. The cops aren't treating the owners of Kahan's Superette as suspects, but we can't help but wonder if they would have the same attitude if the pot had arrived at a Black-owned business.

In any case, a cannabis-peanut butter connection is a much more positive vibe than the "Pizza Connection" that brought massive amounts of heroin into New York City back in the '80s.

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Could Open In Hawaii By Next Year

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, April, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder
 

hawaii medical marijuanaI always say that a state’s medical marijuana program is only as good as the ability for patients to safely and easily access medicine. So if a state doesn’t allow patients to grow their own medical marijuana, or designate another person to do so, then that state’s medical marijuana program will never reach its full potential. The same is true if a state does not allow medical marijuana dispensaries. Not every patient has the means or skill set to grow medical marijuana, and they may not know someone else who does either. It’s vital that those patients have a safe and legal way to buy their medicine.

Hawaii has had a medical marijuana program for well over a decade now, but has never allowed medical marijuana dispensaries on the islands. That has harmed a lot of patients, forcing them to go without medicine or purchase it from the black market if they can’t cultivate it at home. That could change, finally, as early as 2016. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

Dispensary owners could find their own piece of paradise earlier than previously expected after a state Senate committee in Hawaii passed a bill allowing dispensaries to open, along with an amendment to a previous bill that would allow them to open next year.

The original bill said licenses would be issued starting in January 2017 with operations beginning in June of that year.

The Medical Cannabis Coalition of Hawaii has been advocating for issuance of issue licenses in 2016 rather than 2017, according to the group’s website.

For the sake of patients, I hope that dispensaries become a reality in Hawaii in 2016 rather than 2017. They have gone long enough without safe access. I would really like to see Hawaii allow out of state patients to make purchases at dispensaries, much like what Nevada is going to do. Hawaii doesn’t have as many medical marijuana patients as some other states (roughly 13,000), but Hawaii gets more tourists than most other states, and allowing out of state patients to make purchases would be huge for the Hawaii medical marijuana industry, and those out of state dollars could go to things like schools.

Shatter' Marijuana Seized In Pennsylvania 6 Times Stronger Than The Average Pot

Category: Concentrates | Posted on Thu, April, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

A highly potent marijuana product called “shatter” was recently seized in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as part of a drug bust on the home of 23-year-old Samual Schlenbaker, Lancaster Onlinereported Thursday. Shatter marijuana, considered the purest and most powerful weed product, often contains levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, six times stronger than the average pot.

Authorities said shatter marijuana was rare in the area. "We're starting to see evidence of it around here, but I can't say we've run into it a lot," John Burkhart, a Lancaster County Drug Task Force detective, told Lancaster Online. "I do think it has the potential to pick up." Schlenbaker was arrested in mid-March and charged with three felony drug counts, including possession with the intent to distribute, and 59 misdemeanor counts for drug paraphernalia possession.

Shatter marijuana, also called butane hash oil, has gained increasing popularity in recent years among pot consumers in the U.S. The cannabis product resembles clear, thin sheets of dried honey or tree sap and is made by an extraction process that removes any lipids or fats.

"You can grab it and hold it, and it's light,” Kaela Pelland, a health care worker with Réseau Access Network in Sudbury, Ontario, told CBC News. Canadian authorities recently seized a large amount of shatter marijuana. “Then you would, say, smash it and it would shatter, and that's where the name comes from,” said Pelland.

Users usually melt the product and inhale the smoke to get high. The process is sometimes called “dabbing.”

Not everyone is a fan of the marijuana derivative. Some pot legalization advocates say shatter gives the industry a bad rap. “Seeing teenagers wielding blowtorches or blowing themselves up on the evening news might incite a new anti-pot paranoia that could set the legalization movement back decades," Bobby Black, senior editor of High Times magazine, wrote in 2012.
