Boston Police Commissioner: ‘Everywhere I Go, All I Smell Is Pot’

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

The Boston Police Commissioner has a problem. He smells weed everywhere he goes. That doesn’t sound like too much of a problem to us. But let’s hear the guy out.

Marijuana In Massachusetts

Last year, the residents of the state of Massachusetts voted in favor of legalizing recreational cannabis. Most people have been pretty happy with the legislation. After all, weed has a ton of health benefits, it’s non-addictive and it can even help people recover from opioid dependencies. All in all, we’d say that a bit of grass makes everything better.

Of course, not everyone agrees with this.

Who Makes up Canada's Corporate Cannabis Co-op?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

EDMONTON, Alberta - Investors are feeling good about investing in the growing cannabis industry. Expectations from experts estimate that the industry will be worth $17 billion within 5 years in the states, and that is with many states still prohibiting marijuana. It is looking like Canada will be the first country to legalize weed next July, and people are taking action after seeing the profits from the U.S.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau indicated that Mary Jane will be legal by July 1, 2018. According to a CBS News poll, about 61 percent of Canadians approve of legalizing weed, which is part of the government’s decision to legalize it.

Puerto Rico’s MMJ Industry Struggles to Recover from Hurricane

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 20th 2017 by THCFinder

Although still in its infancy, Puerto Rico’s MMJ industry struggles to recover from Hurricane Maria. 

Maria vs Mary Jane

On September 20, Hurricane Maria ripped through the island of Puerto Rico. The storm tore down homes, ruined supplies and killed at least 48 people. According to the latest data, it also hurt the U.S. territory’s medical marijuana industry by destroying equipment and facilities crucial to the survival of the cannabis plants.

According to Goodwin Aldarondo, the president and CEO of Puerto Rico Legal Marijuana, “big manufacturing and grow facilities have had their roof blown off, there is water in their manufacturing rooms, equipment damaged, no light for plants and most are dead.” 

“You’re talking about millions of dollars of damage, and we just started as an industry,” he added.

Kentucky Governor Still Suffering from Reefer Madness

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Gov. Matt Bevin said that he will never allow recreational marijuana to be legalized in Kentucky, so long as he is the governor. The governor of Kentucky used Colorado’s increase in pot-related ER visits as the reason that he is opposed to recreational marijuana, saying that the hospitals are overwhelmed. People are indulging in edibles and end up overdosing.

Several weeks ago, a Kentucky senator announced his support for recreational pot. Sen. Dan Seum, R-Fairdale, said that Kentucky could use the profits from marijuana taxes to pay out pensions, which is expected to be short $200 million for next year.

Those who are opposed to legalizing recreational marijuana cautioned state legislatures last week about their concerns. Richard Sanders, who is the Kentucky State Police Commissioner, said that legalization won’t supersede the black market, despite evidenceto the contrary. He added that it was a myth and that he wasn’t willing to forgo his grandchildren’s futures for his pension.

California Cannabis Company Donates Space to American Red Cross Fire Relief

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

California’s largest medical cannabis manufacturer donates 12,000 square feet for American Red Cross to stage its regional headquarters.

The State of California is having a particularly rough season of wildfires this year. While cannabis farms have likely been affected by wildfires in the past, this is the first year (at least in my recent memory) that so many media outlets have reported on the number of cannabis crops that are actually threatened with burning down.

I have been so happy to see the number of cannabis companies that have stepped up to help with this state of emergency in California, and felt it was important to share this news release that crossed my desk today...

Who’s Currently in Charge of Federal Cannabis Policy?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

As Donald Trump took office in January, cannabis advocates across the country braced for what seemed like a looming and inevitable federal crackdown on marijuana. While the president’s views on cannabis were as erratic as his stance on many other issues, Trump’s cabinet nominees eliminated any doubt about the track the administration would take toward weed. Trump appointed folks with extremely anti-cannabis views to the three positions directly involved with federal marijuana policy. But with the Trump administration bleeding staff like a stuck pig, many are wondering who’s currently in charge of federal cannabis policy?

TWO OUT OF THREE AIN’T BAD

As the shape of the Trump administration came into focus back in January of this year, many commentators feared that the federal government was preparing to jump start a new chapter in the failed War on Drugs.

But over the last few weeks, high profile resignations in the Trump administration suggest the federal government couldn’t coordinate a crackdown on cannabis if it wanted to.

That’s because two out of the three most important positions regarding federal weed policy are currently empty. So who’s currently in charge of federal cannabis policy?
