Missouri Governor Signs Bill That Allows for Expungement of Many Marijuana Convictions

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Jay Nixon, the Governor of Missouri, quietly became a marijuana hero this week by signing into law Senate Bill 558, all while looking like a dad who will never be proud of you. The law will allow the records of almost every marijuana-related conviction in the Missouri state and municipal courts to be expunged from public records.

The bill was not brought forth by any marijuana advocacy group, but rather, the Missouri Bar Association and Republican Senator Bob Dixon. Aiming to expand the list of offenses that qualify for expungement, the bill now allows hundred of non-violent, non-sexual crimes to be waived from public record. Defendants convicted of a felony offense are required to wait seven years after completion of their sentence or probation or parole, and those convicted of a misdemeanor must wait three years.

Evidence Shows How a $2 Roadside Drug Test is Sending Innocent People to Jail

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

The use and possession of drugs in the United States is problematic, but a bigger problem that people are facing is the $2 roadside drug test kits used by cops that can lead to false convictions.

In 1973, Richard Nixon established the DEA, declaring “an all-out global war on the drug menace,” which led to a pair of California inventors patenting a disposable comparison detector kit. After trying out these drug kits, police departments across the country ordered the field tests because of their simplicity and quick results.

And yes, the small and cheap drug tests seem straightforward—but they come with multiple inefficiencies.

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

Netflix announced yesterday that they will be producing a new sitcom starring Oscar-winning actress, Kathy Bates. The show is the brainchild of “Big Bang Theory” creator, Chuck Lorre, and is based around the everyday happenings at a dispensary in Los Angeles.

According to reports, Bates character is a long time marijuana advocate who is fulfilling her dream by starting a dispensary with her 20-something year old son and a “deeply troubled” security guard.

The series is set to have 20-episodes, and was landed by Netflix after being shopped around to other broadcast, cable and streaming networks, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The series is entitled, Disjointed, and does not have a premier date yet.

Whatever’s in Synthetic Marijuana, It’s the Opposite of Chill

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

YESTERDAY IN BROOKLYN, 33 people from a single neighborhood wound up in the hospital after smoking synthetic marijuana. Those afflicted could barely hold themselves up. Some were outright sprawled across the pavement. Bystanders said it looked like a zombie flick. Cops and newspapers called the culprit K2.

Maybe the people using it used the same slang, but then again, maybe not. Spice, Scooby Snax, Black Mamba, Bliss. Not that it matters. Synthetic marijuana is a catch-all term for a huge variety of chemicals engineered to mimic weed. Problem is, these chemicals are way too good at their job. Another problem: The people using them usually have no idea what they’re actually smoking, so figuring out the right dose can be difficult—and dangerous.

Congress Votes to Make Drug Addiction a Health Issue

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

While it has been an uphill battle convincing federal lawmakers that drug addiction should be considered a health issue rather than a problem dealt with at the hands of law enforcement, congressional forces have finally approved a measure intended to change the way the U.S. handles people strung out on heroin and prescription painkillers.

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives put its final approval on a bill called the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), a measure that will allow more low-level drug offenders to be entered into diversion programs rather than get jammed up in the criminal justice system. It also provides for the advancement of a variety of other important programs aimed at reducing opioid abuse and overdose deaths.

One striking chart shows why pharma companies are fighting legal marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

There's a body of research showing that painkiller abuse and overdose are lower in states with medical marijuana laws. These studies have generally assumed that when medical marijuana is available, pain patients are increasingly choosing pot over powerful and deadly prescription narcotics. But that's always been just an assumption.

Now a new study, released in the journal Health Affairs, validates these findings by providing clear evidence of a missing link in the causal chain running from medical marijuana to falling overdoses. Ashley and W. David Bradford, a daughter-father pair of researchers at the University of Georgia, scoured the database of all prescription drugs paid for under Medicare Part D from 2010 to 2013.
