26-pound bundle of marijuana falls from sky and through Arizona family's carport, destroying dog home

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, September, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

Maya Donnelly awoke to what sounded like thunder in the early morning hours, but dismissed it as a typical monsoon storm and went back to sleep.
 
Later that morning, she looked in the carport at her home in Nogales, near the US-Mexico border, and saw pieces of wood on the ground. She found a bulky bundle wrapped in black plastic.
Inside was roughly 26 pounds of marijuana - a package that authorities say is worth $10,000 and likely dropped there accidentally by a drug smuggler's aircraft.
 
Donnelly told Nogales International: 'It's all right on top of our dog's house. It just made a perfectly round hole through our carport.'
The family's German shepherd, called Hulk, was not in his plastic pet crate at the time. 'Thank goodness he is a wanderer at night and was not in his house,' Maya said. 'He was probably at the gate watching the plane go by.'

Attorneys In Hawaii Cannot Be Hired To Help Start Medical Marijuana Businesses

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

hawaii medical marijuanaAnyone who has ever started a medical marijuana business knows that there’s a lot to it. It’s much more than simply paying for a business license, renting a place, and opening for business. There are more things involved with starting a medical marijuana business than most other businesses. What are the local regulations, if any? What are the state regulations? What changes to those regulations are likely to occur in the future? What things need to happen to be in compliance with those regulations (potentially for the time being!). Did I mention the usual legal issues that go into a business, such as intellectual property rights, operating agreements, etc.?

For obvious reasons, serious medical marijuana entrepreneurs need to seek legal advice from an attorney. Unfortunately for those entrepreneurs in Hawaii, they will not be able to get legal advice for starting a business. The Disciplinary Board of the Hawai’i Supreme Court was asked the following two questions:

  1. whether a lawyer may provide legal advice about act 241 (which legalized medical marijuana dispensaries)
  2. whether a lawyer may provide legal services to facilitate the establishment and operation of a medical marijuana business “when such acts are expressly authorized under [Act 241], but remain a crime under federal law, albeit with a low enforcement priority.

As far as I know, every state that has ruled on this has ruled that attorneys can indeed work with marijuana businesses. Unfortunately, that is not the case in Hawaii. The Supreme Court ruled that attorneys can talk about the act itself, but that’s where the counsel ends. Attorneys cannot help businesses setup their operations. So unfortunately, entrepreneurs will have to go it on their own. I expect a flood of mediocre (and that’s putting it nicely) consultants coming to Hawaii to help businesses out. This is not good for patients, and it’s not good for Hawaii.

How Much Marijuana Does It Take To Overdose?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, September, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

Drugs used in medicine are routinely given what is called an LD-50. The LD-50 rating indicates at what dosage fifty percent of test animals receiving a drug will die as a result of drug induced toxicity. A number of researchers have attempted to determine marijuana’s LD-50 rating in test animals, without success. Simply stated, researchers have been unable to give animals enough marijuana to induce death.
 
At present it is estimated that marijuana’s LD-50 is around 1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.
 
In practical terms, marijuana cannot induce a lethal response as a result of drug-related toxicity.”
