John Oliver Lays Out Clear, Concise, Cogent Case For Marijuana Legalization

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, April, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana laws in America are a running joke. By now, you could be forgiven for forgetting to laugh, but it’s undeniably true. Everyone knows it. Look at the blatant incongruity, always fodder for humor:

Marijuana is federally illegal in all 50 states, yet is sold openly in licensed, taxable transactions in over a dozen of them. Cannabis is legitimate medicine, a fact proven time and again by scientific method as well as personal anecdote, yet is officially classified as more dangerous and less medical than cocaine and methamphetamine. The government could shut down and seize all the assets of any one of the many marijuana businesses generating tens of billions of dollars of economic activity every year for being illegal—but demands they pay federal taxes in the meantime, all in cash. And state-legal marijuana use can get you fired and get your kids taken away from you—that is, if you can actually find any. 

And all this is for your own good! We’re the government, we’re here to help.

You could go on and on. You could easily go on for 17 minutes, as comedian John Oliver did on his show Last Week Tonight on Sunday.

Poll: Have Marijuana Laws Affected Your Education?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, April, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana charges can interfere with education as students caught with pot often lose access to scholarships and loans. In fact, drug offenses are the only crimes that must be reported on federal student-aid applications. Depending on the school, students caught with pot can lose access to university housing, be expelled or even be turned over to local authorities and arrested. 

The War on Drugs has impacted the lives of countless students who have had to give up on higher education after being busted for a marijuana-related offense.

We want to know if marijuana laws have affected your education.

Cannabis Activity Tracking in California’s Cannabis Maze

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, April, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

What is the California market worth? Let’s look at what we know from 2016; Washington did just under $1.2 billion and Colorado did $1.3 Billion, both with roughly 2,500 licenses each. The two markets combined are worth $2.5 billion with 5,000 licensees; and 2019 California will be five times bigger? Ten times? On the low-end, that’s $10 billion. The smart money is making moves in the background laying the groundwork to be a first mover to capitalize and capture customer loyalty.  

But that’s the fun and exciting part, the other side…not so much. As a licensee or business operator, now you have to figure out reporting to the Cannabis Activity Tracking system (CAT), comply with several agencies, know your local jurisdiction’s regulations, hire some staff, make some mistakes, and figure out how to make it all work while keeping your head above water.

Marijuana Legalization Still Doesn’t Apply at Coachella—Here’s the Workaround

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, March, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

The world-famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is a drug-free zone. Wipe that smirk off your painted face—at least try; sit down in the chill-out tent and have a drink of water first, if you must—because it is, really.

This applies to legal drugs like medical and recreational cannabis. The festival has declared itself off-limits to marijuana for years, and this hasn’t changed.

“Sorry bro,” the Coachella website explains, using the language of the people to get its point across. “Medical marijuana cards are not valid at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Even in 2017 and beyond.”

Lest you think this is a big joke, last year, 143 people were arrested for drug-related charges at the festival, including marijuana possession, according to the Desert Sun. While possession isn’t a crime anymore, it can still get you kicked out of the fest—and for some people, having your wristband cut off early on the first day may be a punishment worse than arrest and citation.

Cannabis and Comedy Converge at The Gateway Show

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, March, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

The Gateway Show is a comedy show based in Seattle and began a few years ago.  I had not heard about this comedy show until recently, and got to attend my first (of what I hope will be many) a few months ago and laughed so hard I cried!  This show is a fairly typical comedy show with a twist as the comedians perform after cannabis consumption.

The concept is simple: the comedians come in and each perform a set of comedy.  Then, they take an intermission and go off site and get dabbed out of their brains.  Rip City Remedies helps with the product and Hermetic Botanicals helps with the edibles and their other products.  After their sesh, the comedians return to the venue (the Funhouse Lounge is who hosts these shows in Portland) and each do a second set of comedy while under the influence.

Only Marijuana Legalization Fulfills the Promise of Medical Cannabis and Industrial Hemp

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

I’m an adult who likes to smoke marijuana for fun. There is nothing shameful about that.

But there are some people in America who do think smoking marijuana to get high is somehow an unseemly act.

What’s worse is that some of them are supposedly on our side.

Some of the supporters of medical cannabis, for instance, are fond of saying that they are “Patients, Not Criminals” or “Patients, Not Potheads.” They’ll explain how what they’re fighting for are sick and disabled people’s access to medical cannabis, which they’ll assure the listener “isn’t about some stoners just trying to get high.” Those fighting for access to cannabidiol make sure to stress that it’s “not going to get anybody high.”

Oh, no, God forbid somebody uses marijuana to get high!
