Los Angeles to be the Largest Piece of U.S. Pot Pie

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles City Council voted to license the sale of recreational marijuana on Wednesday. Debates on proposed regulations went on for several months prior to Wednesday’s vote, but the city council approved regulations for commercial cultivation and sales to begin on Jan. 1.

New regulations will bar any marijuana businesses from setting up in residential neighborhoods. Zoning will also restrict businesses from being set up close to libraries, schools and parks.

The office of City Council President Herb Wesson said that the new regulations will be in effect as soon as Mayor Eric Garcetti signs the legislation. Wesson believes that other cities will use Los Angeles as a model for their own regulations, saying "The other cities in this nation, they are looking to L.A.," he said.

Watch Canada’s New Ads About Driving High

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

With Canada on track to legalize recreational cannabis on July 1, the federal government has begun the process of educating the public about certain do’s and don’ts when it comes to responsible pot use. Their latest crusade has been a series of ad campaigns, warning Canadian citizens of the risks of drug-impaired driving.

Responsible Toking: Canada’s New Ads About Driving High

Canada’s Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale unveiled the campaign on Tuesday, with the series of advertisements set to air on television, radio, online and in theatres starting December 18. Additional marketing formats will appear on billboards and public places.

The ad campaign, which is in partnership with MADD Canada, Young Drivers of Canada, the Canadian Automobile Association and the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, will cost the government around $3 million and will be primarily geared towards citizens aged 16 to 24. Goodale admitted he considers this age range “particularly impressionable.”

Apple Pulls Games Sensationalizing The Philippine’s Drug War

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

It’s all fun and games until your multi-billion-tech company gets accused of glorifying Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s deadly War on Drugs. At that point, you almost have no choice but to pull the plug on certain business relationships in order to avoid the proverbial fire and brimstone that is sure to come raining down.

This is exactly what the multi-faceted technological giant Apple Inc. has been forced to learn the hard way. It seems the company’s CEO, Tim Cook, stepped into his office the other day, only to find a nasty note from the Asian Network of People who Use Drugs (ANPUD) burning a hole in his desk.

The letter, which reportedly came with the signed support of more than 130 organizations from countries all over the world, demanded the company remove a number of iOS games from the App Store because they sensationalize “the emerging tyranny of Duterte’s presidency and his government’s disregard for human rights principles.”

Ohio hired convicted felon to score medical marijuana grow license applications

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio Department of Commerce came under fire from state officials Tuesday for hiring a medical marijuana program consultant who had a felony drug conviction on his criminal record.

The felony conviction would have disqualified the consultant from being awarded the medical marijuana cultivation licenses he was helping to score.

Trevor C. Bozeman, owner of iCann Consulting, pleaded guilty to manufacturing, delivering and possessing drugs, with intent to manufacture or deliver in 2005, Pennsylvania court records show. Bozeman, who was 20 at the time, was also charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, but those charges were dismissed.

Cops Use Drug Dealer’s Cell Phone To Text His Customers

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

In case you weren’t paranoid enough, we just heard a story in which cops used a drug dealer’s cell phone to text his customers. It’s like something out of an urban legend. Or a cautionary tale. Either way, here’s a real-life account of your worst drug-related fear.

Cell Phone Or Prison Cell?

We now have considerable information regarding the uncanny ability of law enforcement to tap into cell phone signals. And yet, people still have a cavalier attitude when it comes to using these devices to communicate with their dealers. It’s like watching dominos fall every time someone gets busted. Police simply dissect the phone records of that individual to line up all of the future targets in their investigation.

Even more unnerving? Police forces are now using these digital details to taunt and intimidate drug users into either turning themselves in. Or snitch out others.

Illinois Governor Not Likely To Allow Marijuana Legalization

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

Although cannabis advocates predict that Illinois will be one of the next states to legalize recreational marijuana, the problem of an Illinois governor not likely to allow marijuana legalization puts a giant snag in the legislative grind. This will probably prevent pot reform from happening in 2018 in Illinois.

The head honcho with the power to sign a bill into law or bury it is Governor Bruce Rauner. He recently told a Marion television station that pulling Illinois out of the pits of prohibition would be a “mistake.”

Instead of taking a leap toward a legitimate market, the governor says he would like to see officials conduct additional research to pinpoint any consequences that may come from passing a law of this magnitude.

 

“I do not support legalizing marijuana. I think that’s a mistake. You know there’s a massive, human experiment going on in Colorado, and California, other places. We should see how that’s impacted lives and addiction and hurt young people before we make any decision about it here,” Rauner told ABC-affiliate WSIL-TV. “I do not support legalizing marijuana.”
