Study: As Pot Prohibition Slowly Becomes Thing of the Past, Consumers Less Likely to Abuse It

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

The outcome of legalizing marijuana has not had the effect that prohibitionists warned and expected. The behavioral and psychological problems that they feared would follow legalization have not materialized.

Contrary to what prohibitionists tend to assume, the increase in pot-related problems following legalization are not proportional to the increase in consumption. In a recent article, Forbes pointed out that people prone to excess are less likely to be deterred by prohibition than people with more moderate habits.

That being the case, problematic users likely represent a smaller share of cannabis consumers after legalization than they did before, which means marijuana’s benefit-to-cost ratio has improved, Forbesnoted.  

A recent study published in JAMA Psychiatry provides some evidence that as the number of cannabis consumers increases, the percentage of those who experience serious cannabis-related problems will decline.

50 Pounds of Marijuana Shipped to Wrong New Jersey Address

Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, October, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

If you were expecting 50 pounds of marijuana in the mail, a New Jersey police department would like you to drop by.

Police in Hazlet, on the northern coast of New Jersey, responded to a home Tuesday where the owner claimed they had received several packages addressed to somebody who didn't live there, police said on their Facebook page.

Officers opened the boxes in an attempt to find the name of the intended recipient. Instead, they found about 50 pounds of pot.

The department seized the marijuana, which is worth about $100,000, said Hazlet detective Ted Wittke.

Detroit Ready To Ban Butane Marijuana Extractions

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

bho shatter dabs concentratesBanning butane hash oil in the city of Detroit? Only Warren’s crazy Mayor Fouts would try that.

Language contained in the definitions of both the Licensing (Sec. 24-13-2) and the Zoning (Sec. 61-3-353) portions of Detroit’s proposed dispensary ordinance defines what marijuana is, and they both include the statement: “This shall not include butane hash oil.”

Normally banning anything related to marijuana use would be a legal no-go. The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act’s supremacy clause overrules local zoning ordinances (and the Michigan Home Cities Rule Act and state forfeiture laws) which would make any ban on marijuana null and void, but a Court of Appeals decision in a case known as People v Carruthers changed that protected status for concentrates and edibles.

Butane hash oil is a concentrate derived through an extraction process whereby cannabis flowers are washed with gaseous butane to separate the valuable healing oils from the tarry, rough plant material. Only the useable oils are harvested, and the butane is slowly released from the oil over a period of time in a process known as ‘purging.’ Once the butane is fully purged from the oil it is ready for human use in topical creams, liquid tinctures, various foodstuffs and the like.

Since BHO is a concentrate it is controlled via the Carruthers decision. So its current status is banned, therefore not deserving a special mention in Detroit’s ordinance.
