Thousands stand in line for free marijuana seeds in DC

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- For the second time this week, people stood in line for free marijuana seeds

The line was even longer Saturday for folks wanting marijuana seeds than the first 'seed share' on Thursday. Thousands waited outside DC Cannabis Campaign headquarters for hours for a few seeds. People have never been so elated standing in the cold.

"Everyone is very happy to be here," said Amy Dunham.

"We're all getting along, all creeds and color," added Patrick Mitchell

The line stretched several blocks along embassy row on Massachusetts Avenue NW for the historic marijuana seed share event.

"These seeds are a form of freedom, the whole world has been waiting not just D.C.," Mitchell stated.

Mike and Amy Dunham are excited they don't have to hide their secret anymore.

"Our generation is coming out of the closet with stuff like this. A lot of us have been smoking hush hush for many many years."

Initiative 71 passed overwhelmingly by D.C. voters in the fall.

The rules are strict: You must be 21-years-old, no money can exchange hands, you're not allowed to smoke in public, it's illegal to have more than two ounces of marijuana and you can't grow more than 6 plants.

Colorado Cannabis Chamber Calls For Marijuana Testing Reference Library

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 30th 2015 by THCFinder
 

colorado marijuana legalization denver daToday, the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce (C4) called for a marijuana testing reference library in support of amended HB15-1283 currently underway in the Colorado legislature.

“The mandatory testing requirements for retail marijuana were put into place before there were standards established for the labs,” C4 President Tyler Henson explained. “Unfortunately this led to a wide disparity in testing results from lab to lab.”

The C4 Chamber possesses documented surveys by members who have submitted samples from the same batches to different licensed labs in Colorado, only to receive drastically different results – upwards of 40%.

Henson continued, “Because of these issues, the standards and methodologies should be established properly within a reference library, just like any other industry that utilizes testing before we subject the industry to even more costs in an unproven system.”

The current system also does now allow for variance in test results, as currently, even if a product is less than 1-milligram over the 10-milligram serving size, the whole batch must be destroyed.

An allowance for testing variance in products is common across many industries, particular with pharmaceutical companies. A reference library would be able to establish standards for testing variance in cannabis, in order to make both laboratories and manufactures more efficient.

Henson continued: “Our members are left with a lot of difficult questions under our current system in choosing a laboratory to use for testing without any testing standards. Do they choose the cheapest lab? The most consistent lab?”

“These issues with our current testing system are why the Chamber supports HB15-1283, creating a reference library of testing methodologies,” Henson concluded.

DEA Agents Had "Sex Parties" Paid for by Drug Cartels

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, March, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

While the creed of a Drug Enforcement Administration agent is to hunt down those in the underground drug trade, a recent report reveals that these soldiers of the War on Drugs have allegedly been engaging in wild orgies with prostitutes and allowing Colombian drug cartels to pick up the tab.

The report, which was released by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General, indicates that DEA agents assigned to overseas operations utilized government-funded quarters to throw “sex parties” with hookers that were paid for by local drug cartels. Ultimately, the agents involved in these wild-eyed fraternizations of the flesh received suspensions somewhere between two to 10 days.

Perhaps the most shocking revelation in the report is that not only were DEA agents having regular sexual encounters with prostitutes, but they were beating them, as well. There is at least one documented incident in which an agent physically assaulted a hooker during an argument over money.

“We found that a Regional Director, an Acting Assistant Regional Director (AARD), and a Group Supervisor failed to report through their chain of command or to the DEA OPR repeated allegations of DEA Special Agents (SA) patronizing prostitutes and frequenting a brothel while in an overseas posting, treating these allegations as local management issues," the report states. "It was also alleged that one of the subjects in the supervisors’ group assaulted a prostitute following a payment dispute. The matter ultimately was reported to the DEA OPR in June 2010 in an anonymous letter alleging that two Special Agents had frequented prostitutes while in an overseas posting on a regular basis.”

This investigation into the “sexual misconduct” of the DEA and several other federal agencies, including FBI and ATF, also revealed that drug agents accepted money, lavish gifts and weapons from cartel members.
