Orlando leaders pass ordinance to reduce penalties of marijuana possession

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

ORLANDO, Fla. —

A proposal to ease the penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana in Orlando passed in a 4-3 vote Monday.

Orlando City Council members tweaked some terms of the controversial ordinance before it was passed.

The measure will make it a city code violation for possessing 20 grams or less of pot.

The ordinance was originally written so that a first violation would mean a $50 fine, but on Monday, leaders changed the fines for first and second offenders to $100 and $200.

Maine Marijuana Advocates Trying to Restrict Access to Pot Publications

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Maine stands a relatively good chance at legalizing marijuana in the forthcoming November election, the new law would force longtime readers of HIGH TIMES and other cannabis-themed publications to purchase new issues from behind the counter—treating cannabis journalism the same as hardcore pornography.

It seems the marijuana advocacy super group made up of Legalize Maine and the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) has given way to a hypocritical ballot measure than stands to violate the U.S Constitution and the integrity of the marijuana legalization movement across the United States.

Does Hemp Growing/Cultivation Affect Marijuana Growing/Cultivation Via Cross Pollination?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

federal farm bill hemp amendment researchA lot of marijuana growers fear hemp cultivation because they fear that cross pollination via nearby help cultivation will affect a marijuana grower’s crop. But is  that true? A recent article by Capitol Press suggests otherwise:

Marijuana growers fear hemp pollen because they want to avoid the formation of seeds in their crop, which decreases the quality and volume of psychoactive flowers.

As part of his experiment, Norton grew numerous hemp plants in a greenhouse that also contained several marijuana plants. In Oregon, recreational use of the psychoactive crop became legal this year and its medical cultivation has been legal since the late 1990s.

Despite their close proximity to male hemp plants, Norton’s female marijuana plants developed a minimal number of seeds.

“We’ve been successful with them not cross-pollinating,” said Norton.

Looming Marijuana Ruling Could Limit Federal Prosecutions

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Rolland Gregg and his family have fought federal marijuana charges for more than three years, arguing that the roughly 70 marijuana plants investigators found on their Washington property were for their own medicinal use and fully complied with state law.

A federal jury last year convicted Gregg, his mother and his then-wife of growing 50 to 100 marijuana plants — amounts their attorney said are in compliance with state medical marijuana law. With prison sentences looming, they have now turned to a recent act of Congress that they say should have stopped the U.S. Department of Justice from prosecuting them because they were doing what their state allowed. Marijuana is illegal under federal law, and the DOJ disagrees with Gregg's understanding of the new law.

Colorado Lawmakers Reject Organic Marijuana Labeling

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

cannabis soilOrganic marijuana is becoming more and more popular. As I always say, the average cannabis consumer is becoming more knowledgeable and sophisticated every day, and knowing what one is consuming is becoming more important. For a long time knowing what was in a person’s cannabis wasn’t an option. You simply got what you got and hoped for the best. In legal states, those days are going away, if they haven’t already.

Now in legal states consumers can purchase marijuana that has been tested to know what exactly is in the cannabis. The testing also determines what is not in the marijuana, specifically pesticides and other undesirable substances. But testing only tells a user what levels are in the cannabis, and not how the cannabis was grown. More and more consumers specifically want organic marijuana, similar to how more and more people are only eating organic foods.

But just as with organic foods, labeling marijuana as being truly organic is not as easy as some would think. The State of Colorado was trying to become the first state to come up with standard organic labeling for marijuana, but lawmakers failed to pass such a measure over perception concerns. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

State Department Says NIDA Marijuana Monopoly Is a Scam

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has maintained that it is necessary to restrict the cultivation of research marijuana to a single grower in order to stay in compliance with international drug laws, a new federal report indicates that Uncle Sam’s leading drug warriors have been mistaken all along — the agency does, in fact, have the power to issue additional licenses without catching any heat from the United Nations.

In response to a recent inquiry by New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the U.S. Department of State says there is nothing legally standing in the way of the United States distributing additional licenses for the cultivation of marijuana for medicinal and scientific purposes.
