Consultants Advise Native American Tribe To Build Marijuana Resort – Now Face Drug Charges

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

FLANDREAU, S.D. — Two consultants who worked with a Native American tribe on its plans to open the nation’s first marijuana resort have been charged with drug offenses, South Dakota’s attorney general announced Wednesday.

The charges come eight months after the Flandreau Santee Sioux destroyed their crop amid fears of a federal raid, abandoning an ambitious scheme to develop “an adult playground” that they estimated could net as much as $2 million a month in profits. Tribal leaders this week said they don’t plan to revisit the proposal, and instead will use their land to grow vegetables, including tomatoes.

Attorney General Marty Jackley, who warned against the tribe’s proposal from the start, said that a range of marijuana possession charges had been brought against two top officials of Monarch America, the Littleton-based company hired to work with the tribe.

President Obama Grants Clemency to 214 People in Federal Prisons, Mostly Drug Prisoners

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

 

Wednesday’s commutations by President Obama, which brings his total number to 562, represent the most granted by a president in a single day since at least 1900, according to the White House blog.

This is especially good news for 67 prisoners who were serving life sentences—almost all for nonviolent drug crimes, noted the blog.

Michael Collins, deputy director at Drug Policy Alliance, told HIGH TIMES that Obama should be applauded for the commutations, but time is running out in his term.

“He needs to step up the frequency and quantity of commutations,” Collins said. “Every two to three months is not enough.”

Philippines: Military Camps for Drug Users?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

In his increasingly draconian anti-drug crackdown, the new Philippine president, Rodrigo Duterte, actually sent National Police troops to arrest a local mayor—resulting in a shoot-out that left six of the mayor’s bodyguards dead.

On Aug. 1, Duterte ordered Mayor Rolando Espinosa of Albuera town on Leyte to island to surrender within 24 hours—and added: “Otherwise, an order of ‘shoot on sight’ will be given if they resist and endanger the lives of arresting police officers.” Espinosa surrendered to police the next day—but his son, wanted as a suspected drug-dealer, remained at large. The day after that, the gun-fight broke out between the body-guards and police who were on patrol near Espinosa’s house. Police of course said the body-guards fired first. The affair began July 28, when five other of Espinosa’s bodyguards and staff were busted in a sting operation for a street sale of shabu (methamphetamine).

On Thursday Jeffrey Zekauskas, an analyst with JP Morgan, upgraded his outlook for the company's stock and raised its target price from $70 to $85.

New York Doctor Traded Prescriptions for Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

A New York physician with a reputation for treating patients with substance abuse problems was busted in Salina last month after a law enforcement surveillance detail allegedly caught her trading prescriptions for opioid cessation drugs for a few grams of weed.

A report from Syracuse.com indicates that Dr. Nancy C. Blake, a family practitioner, was taken into custody in July by the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office for her role in a black market drug exchange program in which she was providing people with prescriptions for Suboxone, a drug commonly use to help calm the withdrawal symptoms of those addicted to heroin and painkillers, in exchange for a personal stash of marijuana.

DEA on the Verge of Rescheduling Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

The DEA continues to leave us sitting on the edge of our seats. Earlier this year, officials from the department told lawmakers that the agency aimed to make a decision on rescheduling marijuana within “the first half of 2016.”

Well, the first half of the year came and went without a word from the DEA. Russ Baer, an agency spokesman, couldn’t give a time frame on when a decision would be made. However, he told The Cannabist on Tuesday that the DEA was, “closer than we were a month ago.”

The process of rescheduling any substance is very extensive. The DEA must work through a thorough eighty-point analysis.
