All Oregon Pot Must Now Be Tested For Pesticides

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

As of Thursday, the Oregon Health Authority is requiring that all cannabis product batches be tested for pesticides, as the state’s temporary rules governing pesticides expire and permanent rules take over.

In keeping with its reputation for being the strictest state in the union when it comes pesticides, the permanent rules also apply to untested product that was collected for sampling before August 30.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), which oversees the state’s legal weed issues, explained in a notice:

“In October 2016, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission issued a finding that the pesticide testing requirement would be lowered to a minimum of one-third of batches of usable marijuana within every harvest lot, due to insufficient lab capacity.”

Another Major Victory for Weed in the Workplace

Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

As significant an accomplishment as it is, the country’s widening experiment with marijuana legalization is also significantly limited in scope: Your right to possess and consume cannabis stops at the workplace.

Under broad state and federal “Drug-Free Workplace” laws—passed in the 1980s at the nadir of the “Just Say No!” hype—employers have the ability and the right to fire workers for off-the-clock drug use. (For any business on the receiving end of a federal contract, the ante is upped: They are required to screen for drugs.)

Several court decisions have upheld employers’ decisions to drug-test workers, and then terminate them if the tests reveal cannabis metabolites—the fat-soluble molecules that reveal past marijuana use, often days or weeks in the past.

For the most part, drug testing has been a handy excuse for employers to part ways with anyone they might not want to employ but have no legitimate reason to do so. That’s right—minorities.

Maryland’s medical marijuana is finally growing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

At long last, Maryland’s first legal marijuana crop is growing.

With 19 companies cleared to grow, process and sell the plant, the seeds of the medical marijuana program have literally been planted, four years after the state legalized cannabis for medical use.

In coming months, plants will flower in heavily secured facilities, and be harvested and taken to an independent laboratory for quality testing, with some processed into oils, creams and capsules. They’ll end up available for purchase on dispensary shelves around the start of the new year, according to industry officials.
