Customs Officials Discover Pot Being Mailed to US Air Base in Japan

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

Smugglers have been using Yokota Air Base, the headquarters of U.S. troops in western Tokyo, to mail pot into Japan.

“Japanese customs officials at Yokota Air Base discovered marijuana being sent to an APO box in September,” officials said Tuesday in a statement, as reported by Stars and Stripes.

The pot, valued at 8.5 million yen or $72,000, originated in Canada, according to the Tokyo Broadcast System.

The package was sent as unofficial mail to a U.S. service member who was unaware of its contents, according to police quoted by Japanese broadcaster NHK World.

The American service member gave the package to a Japanese national who then gave it to another foreign national at a local bus station in Tokyo, according to the NHK report. Both were arrested.

Marijuana industry could be uprooted by pesticide lawsuit

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

The marijuana industry may be booming in Colorado, but pot entrepreneurs face a very big problem: pesticides.

Two marijuana users, including a cancer patient, filed a lawsuit last week against a pot business that they claimed used an unhealthy pesticide to grow its weed. The pesticide in question is Eagle 20 EW, a fungicide often used on grapes and hops.

The chemicals, used to stave off mites, mildew and other pests, could also be harmful to humans when used on a product that is later burned for inhalation. Eagle 20, in particular, contains a chemical called myclobutanil that produces toxic hydrogen cyanide gas when burned.

The lawsuit alleges that LiveWell, a pot company in Denver, should be penalized for using a pesticide that was not listed by the state as safe for use on marijuana.

The state of Colorado lists pesticides that are approved for use on food and tobacco crops, but it doesn't specifically outlaw Eagle 20 and other pesticides.

Detroit Approves Ordinance To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

detroit marijuanaAccording to the most recent count that I’ve heard, there are at least 148 medical marijuana dispensaries operating in Detroit, despite the fact that the dispensaries are operating in a legal gray area at best according to the State of Michigan. Whether dispensaries are legal or not according to the State of Michigan, one thing is for sure – medical marijuana dispensaries are not going away in Detroit. They are here to stay, and the sooner laws reflect that fact the better off Detroit will be. It sounds like Detroit regulators are recognizing that fact, as it seems that they have approved an ordinance that would license medical marijuana dispensaries. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

Detroit’s medical marijuana industry received a big boost Tuesday with the passage of an ordinance that allows the city to license marijuana dispensaries.

The 6-1 vote gives Detroit the power to establish licensing guidelines, inspection requirements, a fee schedule and penalties – in essence helping to legitimize the scores of unregulated dispensaries that currently exist in the city.

Under the ordinance, all dispensaries will have to obtain a license from the city or shut down. While some – or perhaps many – existing dispensaries won’t be able to meet the regulations and will therefore have to close, the move will stabilize the environment for those that can make the transition.

On one hand I like that Detroit is stepping up and putting a license process in place to help the legitimacy of dispensaries. However, I don’t like when regulations result in already existing dispensaries being forced to move or close. One Michigan chamber passed bills recently that would overhaul Michigan’s medical marijuana program, and would include state level regulations for dispensaries. But those bills face an uphill battle in the Michigan Senate, where there is less affection for the Michigan Medical Marijuana program.
