Report: Marijuana Industry Stealing Wine’s Labor

Category: News | Posted on Thu, January, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

Though even the most basic comparison to alcohol makes some purists retch, American marijuana owes much to the country’s beer and wine industries.

State lawmakers and regulators are modeling licensing and distribution schemes for commercial-grade marijuana on the alcohol industry; a longtime alcohol-regulation bureaucrat now runs California’s Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation; and the sommelier-level taste and smell analysis of high-grade cannabis by would-be connoisseurs is lifted directly from the high-end wine playbook. And if it wasn’t for positive comparisons to alcohol—with political campaigns pushing the message that marijuana is a less dangerous and not-at-all deadly alternative to drinking life’s worries away—the first victories in the quest to legalize marijuana may not have been won.

Marijuana is now repaying the favor with existential dread. Alcohol purveyors and booze industry observers are worried that Americans will stop buying wine and start buying cannabis instead, further eating away at already diminishing alcohol sales.

Police Given More Freedom to Shakedown Marijuana Users

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

While the possession of marijuana is no longer reason enough to get a person thrown in the slammer in the state of Maryland, the state’s highest court says its magnificent odor remains probable cause for police to search a vehicle without a warrant.

A recent report from the Baltimore Sun indicates the Court of Appeals issued a verdict on Friday that will continue to give law enforcement officers the freedom the conduct random searches as long as they claim to smell marijuana.

In the decision, Judge Shirley Watts wrote, “decriminalization is not synonymous with legalization, and possession of marijuana remains unlawful,” giving cops the power to invade civil society.

In 2014, the Maryland General Assembly passed a decriminalization measure, making the possession of up to 10 grams of weed punishable with a $100 fine. The bill, which was signed into law by then Governor Martin O’Malley, was an effort to prevent non-violent offenders from jamming up the criminal justice system.
