Pot Ads Appear In TSA Security Bins At Airport

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Although marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, making anything and everything pertaining to the cannabis plant a leper in the eyes of Uncle Sam, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is reportedly being sponsored by the cannabis industry in some California airports—well, at least the TSA security bins are.

According to a recent story published by the folks at the Los Angeles Times, travelers entering the security checkpoint at Ontario International Airport, which is located in San Bernardino County, will now notice that all of the security bins used to shuttle personal belongings through the X-ray machines are lined with a sticker that reads, “Cannabis Is Legal,” followed by the tagline, “Traveling with it is not. Leave it in California.”

How Cannabis Appeared In TSA Security Bins

What makes this pothead service announcement such a big deal is the fact that this is neither a state nor federally funded initiative aimed at preventing unnecessary shakedowns in terminals all across the United States. The ads are actually part of a public awareness campaign sponsored by a seven-year-old cannabis company called Organa Brands, which is responsible for O.PENVAPE and other popular cannabis brands.

During a recent city council meeting in Colfax, California regarding a potential ban on marijuana dispensaries come January, when recreational sales become legal, one could say things got a little heated.

Or at least, one person got a little heated.

Colorado budget proposal calls for new task force to target illegal marijuana ops

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado aims to establish a state law enforcement unit dedicated to investigating and, ideally, eradicating illegal marijuana grow operations that have cropped up throughout the state.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s $30.5 billion budget proposal for the 2018-19 fiscal year included the allocation of $1.2 million of marijuana tax revenue toward the assembly of a task force within the Colorado Bureau of Investigation that would “investigate black market marijuana operations across Colorado.”

“Black market marijuana cultivation, distribution and exportation continues to increase in prevalence, especially in rural communities where local law enforcement agencies lack the resources necessary to coordinate an effective response,” Hickenlooper wrote in the letter to the legislative Joint Budget Committee. “The unit will help reduce the number of black market grow operations and the nexus to organized crime.”
