Alaska Pot Regulators to Again Consider Onsite Use

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — In an abrupt about-face, Alaska marijuana regulators on Tuesday decided to once again attempt to write rules that would allow the onsite consumption of pot in retail stores.

During a high-profile meeting just last month, the board cited fears over how the Trump administration might crack down on marijuana, even in the eight states where recreational use is legal, in letting proposed regulations wither that would have made Alaska the first state in the nation to allow onsite use.

Those fears weren’t mentioned Tuesday as the board voted 4-1 to attempt to come up with a new set of rules that would eventually be sent out for public comment.

Treating Children with Cannabis: How Humanity has made a Big Mistake

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve made a mistake. You and I specifically? Perhaps not, but collectively we’ve shot ourselves in the foot. Treating children with cannabis is not a new concept, but when I grew up I was told quite the opposite. It was something that did only harm, it was a “drug”, but little did I know prior to prohibition, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines from 1840 to 1937, the “golden age” for cannabis medicine in North America.

The ultimate eye-opener was when I had encountered the children whose lives have been saved  (treating children with cannabis) from this plant. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be born into this world and to suffer mind crippling seizures over and over and over again, to endure hellish pain and utter confusion, with the faint presence of your loved ones nearby. I cannot imagine undergoing all of this and being robbed of the opportunity of play, learning, making friends and exploring the world absolutely carefree when all of this could have been prevented with just one plant- treating children with cannabis. Not 25 different complex pharmaceutical medications, but just one plant. A plant that was never made illegal based on medical sciences, but rather through racist fear-mongering and propaganda stemming from the 1920s and 1930s. When you read this quote from Harry J. Anslinger, the 1st Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics…

The End of Big Home Grows in Colorado Draws Near

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Authorities in Colorado aren’t waiting to see what moves—if any—Donald Trump’s administration will make to pare back the state’s booming marijuana industry. For now, Colorado is cracking down on itself.

For years, law enforcement throughout the Great Plains region have blamed Colorado for an influx of cannabis and accompanying drug trade-related violence throughout neighboring states. This alleged havoc was one of the chief arguments used by attorneys general in Oklahoma and Nebraska in a (failed) lawsuit to try and convince federal authorities to intervene in the state’s legal cannabis trade.

Though the violence cited by Oklahoma AG Douglas Peterson—and later repeated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions—may not exist (which may explain why the Supreme Court refused to give his lawsuit a hearing), the weed certainly does.
