Colorado Edibles Recalled Due to Pesticides

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

Two large Colorado edibles companies have voluntarily issued product recalls over concerns about banned pesticides.

Edipure recalled 20,000 packages of 16 different products, including Peanut Brittle, Raspberry Jellies, Sour Gummi Bears, Rainbow Belts and a variety of licorice that had been delivered to 40 retail stores, while Gaia’s Garden recalled 8,000 packages of 21 different products, including lozenges and drops already on shelves at 176 retail locations.

Consumers are advised to throw out the edibles or return them to stores and contact the producers.

Both edibles companies had purchased the cannabis used for food production earlier this year fromTruCannabis, who issued their own recall earlier this October due to concerns over pesticide use. With no scientific studies to determine whether pesticides usually used on food crops are safe to be combusted and inhaled, the Colorado Department of Agriculture proposed a rule saying they do not recommend "the use of any pesticide not specifically tested, labeled and assigned a set tolerance for use on marijuana because the health effects on consumers are unknown."

Former Corrections Officer To Join Local Marijuana Policy Reformers For Texas Advocacy Training Event

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

texas marijuana legalization dfw normlLocal marijuana policy reform activists, including a former Texas corrections officer, will gather Saturday for an advocacy training event at the Janet F. Harte Library in Corpus Christi. Details of the event are available at http://www.texasmarijuanapolicy.org/training-corpus-christi.

The event, hosted by Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy, is the third in a series of events being held around the state as part of an effort to inject the marijuana policy debate into 2016 state legislative races. Regional events are also scheduled for East Texas on December 5 and Houston on December 12. Last month, activists held trainings in Dallas and San Antonio.

The featured speaker at Saturday’s event will be Michael Gilbert, Ph.D., a University of Texas San Antonio criminal justice professor and former Texas corrections officer. He will join representatives of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy for media availability at 12:00 p.m. CT, and members of the media are invited to listen to his presentation at 1:15 p.m. CT.

“During nearly 16 years working as a corrections professional with military and state corrections, it became clear to me that marijuana prohibition is causing more harm than good. These laws have been counterproductive and fail to meet any of their policy objectives. Simply stated, we have more important matters to address with our limited law enforcement resources,” Dr. Gilbert said. “These advocacy training events are needed to reach others who want marijuana law reform and prepare them to talk with legislators and political candidates about this important issue. I am honored to participate and help others raise their voices in support of reform.”

Dying New Hampshire Woman Files Medical Marijuana Lawsuit Against DHHS

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

new hampshire medical marijuana lawsuitA terminal cancer patient seeking expedited access to medical marijuana filed a lawsuit Thursday in Merrimack County Superior Court against New Hampshire Commissioner of Health and Human Services Nicholas Toumpas. The lawsuit is available at http://mpp.org/HoranLawsuit.

The Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for administrating the state’s medical marijuana program, which has experienced several delays since Gov. Maggie Hassan signed it into law in July 2013. On Monday, DHHS began accepting applications from patients interested in participating in the program, but they remain at risk of arrest and prosecution until they receive program ID cards. DHHS is refusing to issue ID cards until dispensaries open, which is not expected until 2016.

“The state simply needs to issue me an ID card so that I can access the medicine that I need,” said the plaintiff, Linda Horan of Alstead. “It’s hard to imagine why it would take more than two years for that. There are seriously ill people throughout New Hampshire who are suffering every day they go without it.”

Horan suffers from stage IV lung cancer and filed an application with DHHS after receiving approval from all five of her physicians. Her lawsuit asks that DHHS expedite the process of issuing her an ID card so that she can immediately begin obtaining medical marijuana legally in Maine and using it without fear of arrest and prosecution in New Hampshire.
