Opioid commission's anti-marijuana argument stirs anger

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

(CNN)New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, head of the presidential commission on opioids, warned of the dangers of marijuana in a letter to President Donald Trump earlier this month about the panel's findings, saying the current push for marijuana legalization could further fuel the opioid epidemic.

"There is a lack of sophisticated outcome data on dose, potency, and abuse potential for marijuana. This mirrors the lack of data in the 1990s and early 2000s when opioid prescribing multiplied across health care settings and led to the current epidemic of abuse, misuse and addiction," Christie wrote in the letter, which was released with the commission's final report.

DEA Plans To Grow Nearly 1,000 Pounds Of Weed Next Year

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Despite being an administration that has worked hard to prevent others from growing weed, the DEA plans to grow nearly 1,000 pounds of weed next year. They’re setting a heavy quota for their federally-licensed cannabis researchers and growers.

The DEA Drug Quota

According to a Federal Register filing by the DEA, the exact amount that the agency expects from researchers is 443,680 grams of cannabis, which equals a little more than 978 pounds of weed. On top of the thousand pounds, the DEA will allow 384,460 grams of THC to be produced for scientific research in 2018.

The DEA’s yearly order actually consists of much more than just weed.

They apparently have quotas for 92,120 grams of cocaine, 40 grams of LSD, 45 grams of heroin, 30 grams of psilocybin, 25 grams of DMT and more. The DEA’s got a guy for just about anything you need for a wild night.

Parts Of Colorado Approve New Marijuana Taxes

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Voters in multiple parts of Colorado approved new marijuana taxes that will hike prices for consumers in those areas. Eagle County, Colorado is suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues. They’re hoping the new marijuana taxes that were approved will help fund programs that will save the town. However, it still begs the question: Are taxes on legal marijuana getting too high?

Current Marijuana Taxes In Colorado

Until earlier this year, the state retail marijuana sales tax in Colorado has always been 10 percent. Starting July 1, 2017, that tax was brought up to 15 percent. Before the recent hikes, areas like Eagle County didn’t even have a local marijuana sales tax. They were only collecting the regular sales taxes until voters in certain cities approved the new marijuana taxes.

If you live in Colorado and your city isn’t imposing their own marijuana taxes, they may be coming soon.

CBD products are a rip-off for medical marijuana users, study finds

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabidiol, a major component of marijuana, is in high demand these days for its purported health benefits. But a study published on Tuesday discovered that people trying to treat themselves with cannabidiol products likely aren’t getting what they’re paying for.

The study, led by the University of Pennsylvania, tested 84 cannabidiol products purchased online from 31 companies and found that less than a third were properly labeled. Nearly 43 percent of the products — which included oils, tinctures, and vaporization liquid — contained less cannabidiol than their labels promised, indicating that they weren’t potent enough to give their users the medicinal treatment they sought. Another 26 percent of the products contained more.

Pot Growers May Have To Pay Taxes On Crops Destroyed By Fires, Raids

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

While California cannabis businesses gear up for full legalization in 2018, a crucial battle over how much taxes those businesses should pay is quietly raging behind the scenes. And depending on how it all plays out, businesses and consumers could face price hikes on pretty much everything. Currently, local governments can set their own tax rates on growing and selling cannabis. The result is a patchwork of varying rates in cities and counties across the state. And according to TheUnion.com, in the small town of Nevada City, pot growers may have to pay taxes on crops destroyed by fires, raids.
