Cannabis Software Companies Seek to Legitimize the Marijuana Industry and Cash In

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

Even though California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana and is the largest legal marijuana market in the country, it has not yet adapted a system for the government to track product. These kinds of protocols, similar to those that exist for pharmaceuticals, have become standard in other legal states.

In Colorado, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) chips track plants from grow rooms to the dispensary, even if a plant is ultimately processed into an edible or vaping oil. By having a record of every legal plant in the state, regulators can ensure, among other things, that legally grown product is sold according to code.

Next month, California will begin accepting proposals from the companies that want to sell California a platform for tracking pot throughout the state. It’s a way to ensure that “businesses will be run like
a regular business as opposed to operating like drug dealers," says David Dinenberg, CEO of L.A.-based Kind Financial, one of the companies planning to bid on the state contract.

Feds Blast Chicago Cops, Reach Deal Over Baltimore Abuses

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

On Friday, he U.S. Justice Department issued a report charging the Chicago Police Department with a pattern of civil rights abuses.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch said the federal probe, covering the period from 2012 to 2016, found that the Chicago police force “engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force that violates the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.” The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure.

Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Divisiontold the press that police shot at people who posed no “immediate threat to officers,” and used Tasers to shock people “for not following verbal commands.” Officers are “too rarely held accountable for misconduct and discipline is unpredictable and ineffective,” she added. Gupta also charges that communities of color are particularly “burdened” by police misconduct..

Pot Reforms Flood State Legislatures

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

In a race to nail down legalization before the unspeakable happens, legislators in more than a dozen states have introduced measures to loosen laws restricting access to or criminalizing marijuana.

Advocates who support legal medical and recreational weed, which is now up to 60 percent in the U.S., seem to feel the urge to express their support to their corresponding officials and beyond.

The patchwork of various measures, laws, rules and restrictions that govern legal marijuana in 28 states could be propelling the urge for some type of continuity and consolidation, as we come ever closer to having an attorney general who has said “good people don’t smoke marijuana.”

Several states are taking early steps toward decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, reported the Hill.

New laws in Michigan shake up the marijuana industry

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

John Wallace stood in a small storage building with concrete-block walls and explained his vision for the first retail marijuana store in Buchanan.

Medical cannabis patients would have to check in at a front desk. After showing the proper identification, they would be shown to the display room, where friendly bud-tenders would help them choose from a selection of weed, oils or marijuana-laced foods.

With a shortage of authorized caregivers to provide medical marijuana services, patients could benefit from a retail outlet, he said, though city officials have yet to give it their blessing.

Hackers Cripple Leading Marijuana Sales System

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

The Boston Globe reports that hackers early last week took down the servers of MJ Freeway, a system that tracks marijuana sales and inventory, and helps dispensaries prepare regulatory paperwork. The company says no customer or patient information was stolen during the attack, but large amounts of data was corrupted. The recovery process has been slow, and at least some customers are abandoning the company.

With their sales systems down, dispensaries have spent the last week struggling to keep things flowing smoothly. One medical nonprofit, New England Treatment Access (NETA), notified clients in the days after the attack that sales would be slower than usual because staff would have to execute them manually. Other outlets, according to Marijuana Business Daily, were forced to close temporarily.

Governor Proposes Decriminalizing Marijuana in New York State

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

For much of the past two decades, New York City had the dubious distinction of being the nation’s capital for low-level marijuana arrests.

Fueled by the data-driven zeal of former Commissioner Bill Bratton—the same “police reformer” Bill Bratton who suggested, in 2016, that marijuana was responsible for most of New York’s violent crime—NYPD officers dutifully collected petty weed busts like baseball cards.

In 2011 alone, NY cops arrested 51,000 people for marijuana offenses, most of them black or Latino people. The reason, police observers noted, was simple: Marijuana busts are easy, marijuana busts fill the stat sheet and marijuana busts fill the courts, filling in turn the public coffers with court costs and fines.
