Port Richey Becomes Latest Florida City to Pass a Cannabis Decrim Ordinance

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

A city-wide ordinance that will establish an $155 civil infraction for the possession of up to 20 grams of cannabis has been passed by the Port Richey, Florida City Council. The 3 to 2 vote makes Port Richey the first city in Pasco County to pass a cannabis decriminalization ordinance.

Under the new law, police will have the option of issuing an $155 civil citation (ticket) for those caught possessing up to 20 grams of cannabis, rather than arresting them and charging them with a misdemeanor as current law mandates (the misdemeanor carries a punishment of up to a year in jail and/or a maximum fine of up to $1,000).

“That was easier than I thought it was going to be,” Mayor Dale Massad, a supporter of the proposal, said with a smile on his face following the Council’s vote.

UK: Members of Parliament Call for Medical Marijuana to Be Made Legal

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

A year after an outpouring of support for a public petition, demanding the full legalization of marijuana, forced Parliament to give the issue some consideration, an influential group has emerged with plans to lobby for the legalization of medical marijuana for the entire scope of the United Kingdom.

Earlier this week, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Drug Policy Reform published a new report suggesting that the British government should legalize medical marijuana—retail sale and home cultivation—because a considerable number of patients are now being driven into the black market to gain access to this medicine.

Canada Just Legalized Heroin to Control Drug Addiction

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

In an effort to treat Canadians enslaved by a junk habit, the Liberal government has taken action against an old law by imposing a new set of regulations that will allow medical professionals to provide addicts with daily doses of pharmaceutical-grade heroin.

Earlier last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s administration made a move to revamp some of the extreme anti-drug policies that were put on the books by the Conservative government during its rule. Specifically, the change involves a tweak in the language of Health Canada’s Special Access Program, giving physicians the freedom to treat severe cases of heroin addiction with a prescription form of the drug known as diacetylmorphine.

Cops to Get ‘Potalyzers’ for Roadside Marijuana Tests

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

Researchers at Stanford University have developed a “potalyzer”—a device that can detect human THC levels, so cops can determine if a motorist is too impaired to drive.

The hand-held device uses sophisticated bio-sensors to detect THC molecules in saliva. Police officers will supposedly be able collect a spit sample with a cotton swab and read the results on a smartphone or laptop in just three minutes.

Using magnetic nanotechnology, a process developed to screen for cancer, the device can detect concentrations of THC in the range of 0 to 50 nanograms per milliliter of saliva. The Satnford press release on the breakthrough, attributed chiefly to lead researcher Shan Wang, states: “While there’s still no consensus on how much THC in a driver’s system is too much, previous studies have suggested a cutoff between 2 and 25 ng/mL, well within the capability of Wang’s device.”

Canada Calls for US to Change Border Policy Regarding Past Pot Use

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

Canadian officials are hoping they can cleverly persuade the United States government to reconsider its “ridiculous” border policy prohibiting travelers of the northern nation from setting foot on American soil based solely on their admission of using recreational marijuana.

Last Friday, Canada’s Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told CBC’s Power & Politics host Rosemary Barton that allowing U.S. border agents the authority to impose lifetime bans on Canadians simply because they have smoked marijuana at some point in their lives is a “ridiculous situation” that requires a major overhaul in policy.

Why is Big Pharma Funding the Fight Against Legal Weed?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

A prescription drug company just got caught making a massive donation to oppose legalizing marijuana in Arizona.

A massive cash donation from a prescription drug company to fight against marijuana legalization has cannabis activists charging that Big Pharma has it in for legal pot.

This fall Arizona will be one of five states voting to legalize recreational marijuana, and campaign finance reports recently revealed that the pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics has donated $500,000 to Arizonans For Responsible Drug Policy, the primary group fighting a recreational marijuana legalization measure in the state.

Typically the face of such campaigns have been religious conservatives or tough-on-crime politicians, but as medical marijuana has begun to take a bite out prescription drug sales, those with financial skin in the medicine game have begun to take a more public role in keeping pot illegal.
