Olympic Athletes Get Some Leniency On Testing For Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

The Rio Olympics, which is set to kick off this Friday, has already been marred by doping scandals. Russian athletes (among many others) have been accused of systemic doping of athletes to improve performance.

One would think that these huge developments would lead to heavy testing of Olympic athletes this year. However, The World Anti-Doping Agency, which is in charge of regulating drug tests for all Olympic sports worldwide, has reportedly cared very little about athletes use of marijuana outside the window of the Olympic games.

As a start, the threshold to test positive for marijuana was increased from 15 nanogram per milliliter to 150 ng/ml. This would, hypothetically, eliminate positive tests for people who had used marijuana in the weeds leading up to the games. During the London games in 2012, only four tests came back positive for marijuana during competition.

Boston Mayor And City Council President At Odds On Legalization Measure

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

Boston City Council President Michelle Wu and Councilor Tito Jackson are set to formally endorse the state initiative to legalize marijuana for recreational use. The move, which is set to be made official Wednesday morning, pits the duo against Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, who is helping to lead the charge against the referendum.

A 2007 graduate of Harvard College, Wu said she never used the drug but recalled some classmates did during their years in Cambridge.

“It just seems ridiculous that kids at Harvard can smoke pot and have incredibly successful careers while blacks and Latinos, particularly men and boys, who are using the same substance are sent to jail,” she said.

DEA Claims Marijuana Rescheduling Decision Is Close

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced earlier this year that it would reveal its decision on whether to downgrade the Schedule I listing of cannabis within the first half of 2016, it appears that Uncle Sam’s leading dope henchmen are still at the drawing board—reportedly dissecting the plant in an attempt to determine which compounds may be important for medical use and which ones must remain classified as a public menace.

On Tuesday, DEA spokesperson Russ Baer told the Cannabist that while the agency was not yet prepared to make a determination on rescheduling cannabis, it was in the “final stages” of its eight-factor evaluation process, suggesting that a decision, whatever that might be, is well within reach. However, Baer refused to say when the cannabis community could expect the news.

Brazil Allows CBD Oil To Be Imported For Epilepsy Treatment

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

Brazil takes their illegal substances, or lack thereof, exceedingly serious as the Brazilian criminal code states, “Selling and transportation of any illegal drugs, as well as possession or cultivation of larger amounts is characterized as drug trafficking, a criminal act punished with 5 to 15 years in prison and a significant fine.” Recently, the California-based company Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MMI), has become the first enterprise to legally import CBD oil into this Latin American country for epilepsy treatment and other conditions. Naturally, as I researched this momentous news out of Brazil, I became ecstatic to write the piece. I dove into the research process and in doing so realized the privilege that it was to be recounting such a remarkable event. Despite being an offense punishable under Brazilian law, one family would stop at nothing for the sake of their daughter’s health.

Anti-Marijuana Groups Start Pouring Millions Into Stopping Legalization in 2016

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

In an attempt to sabotage several well-funded campaigns aimed at ending marijuana prohibition across the nation, later this year, a gang of drug warriors headed up by former Rhode Island Representative Patrick Kennedy, has emerged with a war chest of more than $2 million that will be used to try to con the average citizen into voting against legalization ballot measures, including one in California, when they show up at the polls this November.

Although there has been very little noise throughout the first part of 2016 about opposing forces pouring mega-dollars into campaigns aimed at stopping marijuana legalization, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday that Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), which was founded by Kennedy; prohibition advocate Kevin Sabet; and David Frum, senior editor of The Atlantic, is planning to spend millions on fighting initiatives to legalize the leaf in Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada.

Overdoses linked to synthetic marijuana called "Darkness"

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The district attorney is investigating and putting out an alert after 20 people overdosed on synthetic marijuana in and around Pennsylvania's state capital city.

Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico says the drug users overdosed over the course of two days last week in the Harrisburg area.

Emergency room doctors are reporting users have experienced advanced stages of delirium and some have had to be revived, including one that wound up in intensive care.

"Don't get started on this stuff. It's just bad news," told CBS affiliate WHP.

Investigators say the synthetic pot in question was packaged with the word "Darkness." They suspect some chemical or other substance may have been added to the synthetic pot.
