End of the Drug Czar? Trump Proposes Huge Cuts to White House Drug Office

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Donald Trump may be following through on a campaign promise more quickly and easily than building a wall or removing millions’ of Americans’ healthcare. And this is one Trump promise that drug-reform advocates can applaud.

Trump wants to slash funding for the office of the national “drug czar” by 95 percent, according to a budget document obtained by news media on Friday and first reported by POLITICO.

If the plan floated by the Office of Budget Management (MOB) goes through, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)—a White House-level office created during the Ronald Reagan, “Just Say No” 1980s, responsible for advising the president on anti-drug efforts and coordinating the various other federal agencies working on the issue—would see its budget cut from $388 million to $24 million. The national “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area” initiatives and the Drug-Free Communities grants would be completely eliminated and would cut 33 of the office’s 70 full-time jobs.

After a decade of research and development, Israel is now here to bring all that they have learned and mastered to the U.S. marijuana market.

Last month, Tikun Olam, the world’s first, largest and leading supplier of medical cannabis in Israel, announced its expansion to the U.S.—beginning with Nevada, just as the state embarks on its journey with adult use cannabis.

Tikun Olam was Israel’s first medical cannabis company, opening its doors in 2007, and soon thereafter selected by the Israeli government in 2007 to be the first government-approved producer of medical marijuana. They have also received international accolades for Avidekel, the first ever high-CBD strain.

Finding the Best Life Insurance Companies for Marijuana Users

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, May, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

The national attitude toward marijuana is changing. Some states have legalized weed, others have it on their docket for 2017, and you can even invest in cannabis stock. Finding the best life insurance companies for marijuana users is important too. 

But where does that leave life insurance for marijuana users?

Marijuana’s legality is still hazy, and so are the guidelines that carriers use to rate applicants who use marijuana. Insurance carriers set policy premium rates – the amount you’ll pay every month – largely based on your health. The worse your health, the more you pay.
