False Report in the Denver Post Creates Hardship for Colorado Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

On Monday, the Denver Post published a shotgun-style report implicating a couple of Denver marijuana dispensaries in the unlawful sale of a number of pot products treated with unapproved pesticides. The story suggested that during an inspection, city health officials discovered “hundreds of lozenges” and an “undisclosed amount of raw cannabis,” being sold at Mountain High Suckers and MMJ America containing the pesticide spinosad -- a chemical that has been outlawed across the state. 

However, while the Post’s report indicates that health officials were forced to quarantine hundreds of cannabis products at these locations in the interest of Denver’s new stance against the chemical, it turns out the companies were simply using old labels that they had been given permission to use by a city health inspector. Yet, due to "politics" and some purported insider prejudices towards the state’s cannabis trade, the story, which was a blatant untruth that garnered an almost immediate retraction, was allegedly hand delivered to the Post by someone under direct orders of City Attorney Dan Douglas. 

“The city attorney has it out for us,” said Jake Salazar, owner of MMJ America, in an interview with HIGH TIMES, adding that Douglas is one of the medium-level officials that are staunchly opposed to the cannabis industry.

Science Finally Explains How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells And It's Pretty Amazing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Only recently we had published an article explaining how scientists at the National Institute of Health (NIH) have found cannabis to be a potential killer of cancer cells. You can read the article here.

On that note, we're going to talk about a scientific explanation that supports the NIH claim: "cannabis and cannabinoids may have benefits in treating the symptoms of cancer or the side effects of cancer therapies."

A molecular biologist, Dr Christina Sanchez, at the Compultense University in Madrid (Spain) spells out the exact mechanism at work, wherein the THC - "the main psychoactive constitute of the cannabis plant" - completely destroys the cancer cells.

Cannabinoids is a group of compounds that comprise cannabinol and the active components of cannabis. These bring the cannabinoid receptors in our body alive. Dr Sanchez explains how our body itself produces endocannabinoids that activate various processes within, "creating a healthy environment". According to her, it's important to note that cannabis has the potential to kill anything cancerous, without giving birth to any psychoactive effects.Read More:



Alaska: Third Round Of Proposed Marijuana Rules Under Consideration

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

alaska marijuana legalizationIf you live in Alaska, check out the message I received below and get active:

Dear Johnny:

The third round of proposed rules drafted by the Marijuana Control Board (MCB) has been issued, and those who wish to provide feedback may do so before 4:30 p.m. Thursday, September 10. The current set of rules addresses regulations related to cultivators, product manufacturing, and testing.

If you wish to be heard, please take a moment to provide your feedback to the MCB. And take a look at the campaign’s comments, available here.

As with previous rounds, most of the proposed rules are reasonable, but several areas should be improved. For example:

— The draft rules would prohibit the sale of marijuana-infused cooking oil directly to consumers — which could be burdensome to medical marijuana patients who wish to create their own edibles.

— The rules seek to impose an artificial limit on the percentage of THC available in any product, despite the fact that the federal government has approved a medicine that contains 100% synthetic THC.

— They would prohibit cultivators from allowing odors to be detected by the public, even for large operations in rural areas.

For a closer look at our comments, take a look at our letter to the board. And if you wish, you can either submit your own comments or click here to send an email to the board immediately.

Then, please forward this email to other Alaskans who support fair rules for regulating the state’s emerging marijuana marketplace.
