North Coast marijuana growers fear a takeover by 'Big Alcohol'

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

For the Humboldt farmers, Sonoma County's subterranean tasting rooms and Tuscan affectations offered a glimpse into a rarefied realm of legal intoxicants.

The marijuana growers had driven south from redwood country to the oak and grass hills to take part in an event called “The Women of Wine & Cannabis,” a chance to visit boutique wineries and learn about appellations and branding in the $200-billion retail alcohol market.

California Gym Allows Members to Toke While They Train

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Lace up your sneakers and get ready for the first and, so far, only, weed-friendly gym to open soon in San Francisco.

Power Plant Fitness will allow edibles and vaping on-site to start with and eventually will add an outdoor smoking deck.

The philosophy of the fitness club includes the use of cannabis as a tool for focus and recovery.

New members will take a “cannabis performance assessment” under staff supervision to determine the “most optimal ways to consume,” explained cofounder Jim McAlpine.

As More States Legalize Marijuana, Adolescents’ Problems With Cannabis Decline

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Teen Age Dope SlavesA survey of more than 216,000 adolescents from all 50 states indicates the number of teens with marijuana-related problems is declining. Similarly, the rates of marijuana use by young people are falling despite the fact more U.S. states are legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana use and the number of adults using the drug has increased.

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis examined data on drug use collected from young people, ages 12 to 17, over a 12-year span. They found that the number of adolescents who had problems related to marijuana — such as becoming dependent on the drug or having trouble in school and in relationships — declined by 24 percent from 2002 to 2013.

Over the same period, kids, when asked whether they had used pot in the previous 12 months, reported fewer instances of marijuana use in 2013 than their peers had reported in 2002. In all, the rate fell by 10 percent.

Those drops were accompanied by reductions in behavioral problems, including fighting, property crimes and selling drugs. The researchers found that the two trends are connected. As kids became less likely to engage in problem behaviors, they also became less likely to have problems with marijuana.

Colorado Prosecutor Says Legal Marijuana Causes Majority of State’s Murders

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

While many Colorado officials have come forward over the past few months to declare that legal weed is working better than they ever imagined, some prosecutors across the state believe the legal cannabis industry is responsible for the majority of the state’s murders.

In a recent interview with Fox 31 Denver, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler said nearly two-thirds of the homicide cases he has overseen in recent years have had a blatant connection to marijuana. This uprising in murder, he said, could be traced back to a legion of small time dope dealers who are slinging the herb on the street with rabid enthusiasm because legal weed has made it easier for the black market to thrive.

California Teamsters Oppose Marijuana Initiative

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

While it may sound a bit strange for the nation’s leading labor union to take a stand against any industry that promises to create thousands of new jobs and generate millions of dollars in new revenue, the California Teamsters recently said that the union does not support a ballot initiative aimed at legalizing recreational marijuana because it would cut its members out of the loop.

The Teamsters union, an organization looking out for the interests of truckers and warehouse workers, has donated a significant amount of money to an anti-drug campaign that is trying to prevent marijuana from being legalized in California this November. A recent report from the Intercept shows the Teamsters recently dropped $25,000 into a fund supporting the Coalition for Responsible Drug Policies—the same lobbying effort being financed by law enforcement and prison groups all across the state.

NYPD Police Chief Thinks Legal Pot Causes Violence

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton was apparently absent the day his high school history teacher explained to the class how the days of alcohol prohibition influenced more than a decade of lawlessness throughout the Land of the Free.

During a recent appearance on AM 970’s “Cat’s Round Table,” Bratton told host John Catsimatidis that marijuana is the reason there has been a surge in violent crime across the five boroughs. “Here in New York,” Bratton explained, “most of the violence we see is involving marijuana, and I have to scratch my head as we are seeing many states wanting to legalize marijuana, and more liberalization of policies.”
