Parents Charged After Marijuana Pipe Found In Child's Diaper

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder

Really parents? A freaking pipe in your kids diaper... way to help screw over all the work people have put into this industry to show all the positives that Cannabis brings. When people do idiotic things like this, it just takes us down a whole level again.

Prosecutors in Logan County have charged a couple with child neglect, drug possession and several other offenses after police say their child showed up at day care with a marijuana pipe in its diaper. 
 
It happened in Guthrie. Deputies say after the pipe was found, they went to the home of Jesse and Jessica Renaker, where they discovered more than an ounce of marijuana and a handgun. 
 
Court records show the Renakers were charged Friday with two counts of child neglect, one count of marijuana possession, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of felony firearms possession and one count of maintaining a home where drugs are kept. 
 
Two children were taken into DHS custody. 
 
A Logan County sheriff's official says Jessica Renaker works as a teacher in the area

NYPD Arrests for Marijuana Soar in 2011, Second Highest on Record

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2012 by THCFinder

The NYPD continues to harass marijuana users even for simple small time possesion causing tax payers to waste their money by sending this people to jail over a harmless plant.

The folks at the Drug Policy Alliance -- who we talked to extensively for last year's Voice feature "The White Mayor's Burden" -- put out a scathing press release yesterday writing that the NYPD arrested 50,680 for marijuana in 2011, making it the highest year for the Bloomberg administration and the second highest year in the history of the city (just 587 arrests behind the record holding year 2000, when the Giuliani NYPD arrested 51,267 people for pot).
 
Given that the overwhelming majority of people arrested for pot are black and Hispanic young men, it's ironic that 2011 saw a continuation in the increase of marijuana arrests. After all, 2011 was the year Mayor Mike rolled out the Young Men's Initiative with an alleged desire to "help" young men of color. It was also the year NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly was forced, after Bloomberg's initiative was so widely mocked, to clarify that stop-and-frisks couldn't include illegal searches that made marijuana become in public view because a cop had illegally taken it from a citizen's pocket.
 
And yet, despite this, the marijuana arrests rose last year all the same.

Entire 5 story New York Building was a Marijuana Grow Farm

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 2nd 2012 by THCFinder

Thats one hell of a serious grow op when you havea  freaking 5 story building for your operation!

Police raided a five-story Bronx building that they believe was being used as a marijuana farm with hundreds of plants in an elaborate growing system.
 
A search warrant was executed at about 1 p.m. Tuesday at 610 Morris Park Ave., according to police. Investigators seized 593 plants, some as tall as seven feet, as well as 75 pounds of marijuana that had been cut, dried and packaged in plastic.
 
Sources told NBC New York that each floor of the building was used for a different stage of growth for the plants. It had been outfitted with an intricate ventilation and hydration system.
 
The seized plants and packages totaled about 1,550 pounds, police said.
 
Investigators said about 50 to 60 pounds of marijuana were being produced each month for a value of about $250,000.
 
Three Bronx men, ages 23, 24 and 25, were arrested and charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

Marijuana mouth spray: Will cancer pain reliever be abused?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 1st 2012 by THCFinder
It's really interesting to hear these people talk about someone abusing Sativex to get high when you see people constanly abusing prescription drugs such as Vicodine and others. Why do they consistantly try to make THC so evil?
 
The medical marijuana drug Sativex, which could be approved in the United States in the coming years as a treatment for pain relief, has little potential for abuse, experts say.
 
The British pharmaceutical company GW Pharmaceuticals is currently testing the drug, which is delivered as a mouth spray and called Sativex, in clinical trials. The company plans to seek U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for the drug as a treatment for cancer pain when the trials are completed, likely sometime in 2014, a spokesperson for GW Pharmaceuticals told MyHealthNewsDaily.
 
The active ingredients in Sativex, known as cannabinoids, are derived from the cannabis plant. It is the first marijuana-based drug to be made by extracting the compounds from the plant, rather than synthesizing them. Two other drugs, Marinol and Cesamet, based on synthetic cannabinoids, were approved by the FDA in the 1980s.
 
Because the drug contains THC, the ingredient primarily responsible for marijuana's "high," it's possible people would use the drug for recreational rather than medical purposes.
 
"There is no doubt in my mind that there will be people that abuse it," said Dr. Jeffrey Bernstein, director of the Florida Poison Information Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
 
However, because the drug is delivered through ingestion, rather than smoking, it would take much longer to have an effect — at least an hour, compared with the minutes it takes to get high after smoking marijuana, said Margaret Haney, a professor of clinical neurobiology at Columbia University. This means drug users seeking a high would be less likely to abuse it. "Smoking is a really effective way to get a chemical into the brain," Haney said. The mouth spray "is a far safer administration,"she said.
 
And Marinol and Cesamet, which are also administered orally, have a low rate of abuse. "We don’t see a lot of problems from [those]," Bernstein said.

42 Wash. lawmakers ask DEA to reclassify marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 30th 2012 by THCFinder

It's time to reclassify marijuana and apparently 42 washingtons lawmakers agree!

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — More than three dozen Washington state lawmakers are asking the federal government to reclassify marijuana.
 
IN a letter to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on Monday, the lawmakers said they supported Gov. Chris Gregoire's previous request on the issue. Reclassifying marijuana as a Schedule II drug would allow it to be prescribed by doctors and handled by pharmacists.
Seven Republican lawmakers are among the 42 who have signed on to the letter.
 
With all the pressure on the Obama administration as well as the DEA, will our government finally start listening to the people and make the right choices?

President Obamas YouTube Forum deems marijuana legalization questions inappropriate

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 25th 2012 by THCFinder

What kind of bs is going on now....

 

 As of 7pm Pacific, I checked the YouTube.com/WhiteHouse page to see how many votes our question received in President Obama’s latest YouTube Forum.  The good news?  Our question, “With over 850,000 Americans arrested in 2010, for marijuana charges alone, and tens of billions of tax dollars being spent locking up non-violent marijuana users, isn’t it time we regulate and tax marijuana?” received 4,023 votes, making it one of the most popular submissions to the forum.
 
The bad news? 
 
“The submission has been removed because people believe it is inappropriate.”  Hmm, well, who are these people?  The question got 241 “thumbs down” votes from viewers, was that it?  I notice that of the 615 questions submitted that asked about “With over 850,000 Americans arrested in 2010″ in the text, some still remain with 28 “thumbs down” and others are removed with as few as three, so it doesn’t seem like “people” refers to viewers or the public, does it?
 
Who are these people, President Obama?  They’re not the people out here who keep making marijuana legalization the number one topic of these online forums.  They’re not the millions whose lives are impacted by a marijuana arrest; the tokers and their families who lose jobs, houses, kids, freedom, assets, respect, security, and peace of mind because of marijuana prohibition.
 
Sadly, I think these people are actually just one person… a guy who smoked weed (and snorted coke) back in the day as a teenager in Hawaii and was damn lucky he didn’t get caught or today he’d be Barry the Drug Criminal.
