DOJ Reminds Its Minions to Stay Away from Bankruptcy Cases Involving Weed
People working honest jobs in the legal weed industry are getting it from all sides; the government keeps refusing to treat them like valid business people.
First, legal weed entrepreneurs are prohibited from using the banking system, creating all manner of complications for companies forced to deal in cash only.
Despite the fact that weed businesses and dispensaries pay taxes, and in some cases quite a lot of them, they are not allowed to deduct business expenses associated with their work.
Now, in the midst of these mounting and unfair and discriminatory practices against the country’s fastest growing industry, which is expected to pull down $21 billion in earnings by 2020, a Justice Department bankruptcy watchdog has “reminded” his trustees to dismiss all bankruptcy cases that involve marijuana assets.
Master Kush (Hybrid)
Extracted courageously from Afghanistan's Hindu Kush region, the Master Kush strain of marijuana is a variety that stays compact and is forgiving to the inexperienced marijuana gardener. It grows powerfully in just about any medium including coco, soil, hydroton, water and even air. When explored through toking, Master Kush cannabis presents a highly potent smoking experience that is sweet, citrusy, earthy and smoothed. The high will enliven your creativity, spark your passion for living - and increase your appetite.
Congress Ties Jeff Sessions' Hands on Medical Marijuana
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the bogey man to many in the nation's burgeoning marijuana industry. Many pot entrepreneurs fear that the nation's top law enforcement officer – who once said "good people don't smoke pot" – will use the full force of the federal government to raid their businesses, even though the majority of U.S. voters support legal or recreational marijuana.
But this week, medicinal marijuana business owners and patients are breathing a sigh of relief: The compromise bill to fund the government through September includes an extension of a provision that keeps Sessions' hands tied by explicitly barring the Department of Justice from using its resources to go after marijuana growers, sellers and users in the more than two dozen states, plus D.C., that have legalized medical marijuana – though, inexplicably, North Dakota and Indiana were left out (possibly because of a clerical error).
Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because its such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.
‘Godfather of Grass’ Pleads Not Guilty in Federal Court
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A 73-year-old drug suspect known as the “Godfather of Grass” has made his first appearance in federal court in Louisville since his December arrest in Canada after eight years on the run.
The Courier-Journal reports John Robert “Johnny” Boone told U.S. Magistrate Judge Colin Lindsay on Wednesday that he understood his rights, and his lawyer entered a not guilty plea for him.
Boone was imprisoned after a conviction in the 1980s. Prosecutors said he had 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin. Prosecutors said he led a network nicknamed the “Cornbread Mafia.”
Authorities say Boone fled after being charged in 2008 with distributing marijuana grown on his farm in Springfield, where Kentucky and federal authorities allegedly found more than 2,400 marijuana plants.
