Is North Korea 420 Friendly?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

north korea marijuanaNorth Korea is home to one of the most oppressive governments of the Earth today. In the country, there is absolutely no private ownership, and everything belongs to the state. It is estimated that 150,000 to 200,000 people live within prison camps. There is an approved haircut list. And narcs are planted throughout the country to report suspected citizens of possible criminal behavior.

However, these narcs have nothing to do with marijuana (but they will certainly get you on hard drugs). North Korea doesn’t consider marijuana a drug at all, and is completely legal in the country. That’s right. I can repeat that: marijuana is completely legal in the country of North Korea.

In fact, the plant isn’t considered a taboo, and grows along the sides of the roads throughout the country, which marijuana grows naturally in the Korean Peninsula (perhaps why it developed into a cultural norm). With that, visitors to the country report that people will smoke it freely anywhere throughout the town.

So perhaps these prohibitionists are onto something. Do we really want to live in North Korea? Because if we legalize marijuana recreationally, we will no doubt live in a country like North Korea. First, they give us our marijuana. Then they take our guns, and then all of our private property is seized. (I think this is needless to say, but just in case this is only sarcastic).

California’s Recreational Marijuana Law Would Allow Cannabis Cafés and No Stoned Driving Limit

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

The most highly anticipated marijuana initiative in California—perhaps even across the entire United States—was finally submitted earlier this week to the state attorney general. ReformCA, the financially endowed coalition working to legalize recreational marijuana in the Golden State during the 2016 election, recently announced that their proposal, the Control, Regulate, and Tax Cannabis Act of 2016, was simply waiting for the approval of state officials before they launched a mega-campaign that could change the course of prohibition for the entire nation.

“We believe this effort has the most statewide input and consensus, and thus the greatest likelihood of succeeding on the 2016 ballot,” Dale Sky with ReformCA said in a statement. “We engaged in extensive discussions with thousands of stakeholders across California, including community leaders, activists, elected officials, city and county employees and locals.” 

Running along the same vein as other initiatives that have been passed in America over the past few years, the ReformCA measure would establish a regulatory model for the cannabis trade, allowing adults 21 and over to purchase weed in a manner similar to way they do alcohol. It would also eliminate the criminal penalties for possession by allowing adults to hold up to an ounce of weed, while also permitting residents to grow up to 100 square feet of cannabis.

Are Dangerous Pesticides In Your Marijuana?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

black widow marijuana strainIt seems that the talk of the cannabis industry right now is pesticides being used by growing operation in Colorado. Over the past few years, the marijuana industry has gone fairly unregulated on how businesses can grow their plants and what pesticides can and cannot be used, due mostly from industry pressure. However, this may be coming to an end as the first class action lawsuit is presented within the United States’ cannabis industry.

Brandon Flores and Brandie Lorrabee, both medical marijuana patients in the state of Colorado, are suing LivWell for their use of dangerous pesticides on their crops. LivWell is a large dispensary chain with 9 stores across the Denver area, and uses the pesticide Eagle 20 on their crops. While Eagle 20 is safe to use on crops like fruit, they are not allowed to be used on crops like tobacco due to the hydrogen cyanide gas they can produce, which is extremely toxic.

The lawsuit aims to end the use of this dangerous pesticide in growing operations, and also seeks compensation for health damages done because of the use of Eagle 20.

Just going onto the LivWell website, you can speak with a customer service representative and this is what they had to say to me:

“Testing of our finished product by an independent, state-licensed lab approved by the City of Denver showed that our products are safe. All of the substances used during cultivation are certified by the Organic Materials Research Institute.”

How Hemp Can Clean Up Radiation From Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

MINNEAPOLIS — The cannabis plant has myriad uses, from paper, fabric and even fuel that can be created from industrial hemp, to the many health conditions which benefit from medical marijuana. Here’s one more benefit to add to the list: removing toxic metals and even radiation from soil.

The process of using plants to clean polluted soil is called phytoremediation. According to a 2014 report from Nation of Change’s Christina Sarich, two members of the mustard family are more frequently used in phytoremediation, but cannabis has shown some promise because of its hardiness to toxins and quick growth rates. Some have even considered using it near Fukushima.

A group of representatives of Consolidated Growers and Processors, PHYTOTECH, and Ukraine’s Institute of Bast Crops experimented in the late 1990s with using industrial hemp, a form of the plant that’s high in fiber but low in psychoactive or medical benefits, near the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, where a great deal of agricultural land is still unusable because of the presence of radiation and heavy metals still lingering from the 1986 meltdown.

Latest US Sentencing Reform Effort Is More Hype Than Guts

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

While federal lawmakers were busy getting nothing done in Washington, D.C. last week, there was at least some harmony on the hill regarding the issue of sentencing reform.

After several months of negotiations, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Democratic Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois struck a deal within the U.S Senate by introducing “The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015.” The proposal begs to impose modest changes to the criminal justice system in the United States that would create more flexible guidelines in the area of mandatory minimum sentencing laws. 

The bill is being hailed by supporters as one of the most substantial criminal justice reforms to be introduced since the inception of the War on Drugs—a signal that some believe to be an indication that a treacherous era is finally coming to an end.

The legislation, however, is not exactly salvation’s wings.

Cannabis Coming to Uruguay Pharmacies—At Last

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Uruguay's government announced last week the granting of licenses to two companies to grow cannabis for commercial distribution. 

Juan Andrés Roballo, head of the National Drug Board, said the two companies chosen out of 22 applicants were Symbiosys and Iccorp, both start-ups financed by Uruguayan and foreign capital.

They will each be allowed to produce two metric tons of cannabis yearly—with the plantations to be guarded by government troops. Uruguayans will be able to purchase 10 grams (about a third of an ounce) weekly. Roballo told reporters that cannabis will go on sale in the country's  pharmacies "in no less than eight months from now."

The move has been a long time coming.

In May 2014, Uruguay's cabinet set a six-month deadline for pharmacy sales. But as November came, regulators backed off setting a firm date because of the country's elections, which returned the leftist Frente Amplio (Broad Front) to power. Conservative challengers who campaigned against the legalization policy were soundly rejected by Uruguay's voters.
