Is CBD a Schedule 1 Drug to the DEA?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve been noticing article after article about recent changes within the DEA’s classification of CBD. It seems making sense of a new move by the DEA to place a tracking code on CBD has many online sources confused.

We’ll admit, even we were scratching our heads trying to make sense of the purpose and motives of these moves. So we did some digging to see how exactly this change would affect the cannabis industry and medicinal cannabis-using patients.

To clarify what’s going on, earlier this month the DEA published changes to the internal code system that would directly specify CBD or “Marihuana Extract” as “Meaning an extract containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis, other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.” The DEA did propose this change in 2011, however, the case has just now been closed on the matter, bringing rise to more questions.

Now that pot’s legal in California, here’s how to grow it indoors and outdoors

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

At his midtown hydroponics gardening store, Chris Corsello saw many of his customers face a similar dilemma: They wanted to ask his advice but not tell him what they were growing.

“They’d hem and haw,” Corsello said. “You’d sort of look at them sideways and ask, ‘What kind of plant are we talking about?’

Neither side would say, he said. Confirming the plant was marijuana could have put Corsello and his customer in jeopardy.

Proposition 64 changed that, and a lot more, by making California cannabis gardening and recreational use legal as of Jan. 1.

Texas Cop Makes Teenager Do Pushups Instead of Booking Him for Smoking a Joint

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

An off-duty Texas police officer caught a teenager smoking weed in front of a movie theater. The cop decided to resolve the situation in an equally off-duty, macho, paternalistic way that only police officers can get away with these days.

He told the boy to do 200 pushups, right then and there, or he’d book him for weed possession. The teen, of course, did the pushups.

Good thing the young man was in good shape. Not every teenager could pull off that many pushups on demand and on the sidewalk.

According to an ABC affiliate, someone ratted the teen toker out. So the police officer apparently saw it as his civic duty to get involved.

What happened in Washington state after voters legalized recreational marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

The nation's first recreational marijuana shop opened nearly three years ago in Colorado. Since then, a growing body of research has shown that the availability of recreational marijuana — in Colorado and elsewhere — is having little to no effect on teens' propensity to smoke weed.

That's the conclusion, at least, of the official statistics out of Colorado through 2015. It's what federal data shows nationwide through this year. And it's also backed up by other federal surveys of drug use in the states where marijuana is legal.

The data on this point has been consistent enough that longtime skeptics of the merits of marijuana legalization, like Nora Volkow of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, are expressing surprise at the findings. “We had predicted based on the changes in legalization, culture in the U.S. as well as decreasing perceptions among teenagers that marijuana was harmful that [accessibility and use] would go up,” Volkow told U.S. News and World Report earlier this month. “But it hasn’t gone up.”

Judge Dismisses Suit Against Kansas Mom Who Used Medical Pot

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a western Kansas woman against the state and several agencies after her son was removed from her home in 2015 when he told school officials she used marijuana.

Shona Banda, of Garden City, alleged in the lawsuit filed in March that the defendants denied her civil rights by refusing to allow her to use medical marijuana to treat her Crohn’s disease, interfered with her parenting and questioned her son without her permission. Medical marijuana is not legal in Kansas.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten dismissed the lawsuit Tuesday, agreeing with the defendants’ contention that Banda had no right to use marijuana and the agencies had some immunity.

Banda says she intends to pursue the case after she recovers from a recent surgery.

Massachusetts Politicians Defy Voters, Pass Bill To Delay To Start Of Marijuana Sales

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Massachusetts voters approved marijuana legalization on Election Day 2016, and by a healthy margin. Massachusetts became the first state to legalize marijuana for adult use on the East Coast. Marijuana sales were expected to begin no later than January 2018. However, due to a bill that was passed today by the Massachusetts Legislature, sales will be delayed until at least the summer of 2018. Per the Boston Globe:

It took less than an hour and about a half-dozen state legislators to undo the will of 1.8 million voters expressed just last month.

The House and Senate passed a bill on Wednesday delaying the opening date for recreational marijuana stores in Massachusetts by half a year — from January to summer 2018.

 

The extraordinary move would unravel a significant part of the marijuana law. About 1.5 million people voted against legalization on Nov. 8.
