DEA Compares Home-Grows to Meth Houses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Leave it to the DEA to compare growing your own pot at home to the “meth houses of the 1990s.”

In a puzzling new report, the DEA claims that Colorado’s homegrown pot has led to large-scale operations that risk occupants, neighbors and first responders because of a series of conditions that will probably remind most people of their first apartment or their college dorm room.

In its so-called Intelligence Report for June, the DEA lays out what it regards as the dangers of growing pot at home, which include strong odors, excessive noise from air-conditioning, electrical transformers, heavy traffic, moisture, condensation, mold and loose or entangled electrical wires.

Humboldt County Approves First Commercial Cannabis Farms

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Northern California’s traditional cannabis heartland, Humboldt County, gave an official go-ahead for two commercial medical marijuana farms to open this summer, the Eureka Times-Standard reports. The two operations are Honeydew Farms, a seven-acre outdoor grow in the town of Honeydew, and a quarter-acre “mixed-light” farm run by Blessed Coast LLC in Carlotta. These are the first such enterprises in the county, “marking the beginning of a new era for the industry.”

About 100 more such businesses have submitted applications to the county, and county senior planner Steve Lazar said he expects hundreds more in the coming months. He called the applications the “first end of big wave” that is about to crest. Applications are being made under a regulatory program approved by the county in January, complimenting California’s Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), which creates a statewide licensing program expected to start in 2018. Under the law, operators must hold both a local and state license.

Michigan Cities Reject Funding For Drug Task Forces on Medical Marijuana Patients

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

(Editor’s Note: Rick Thompson was the Public Relations Director for the MACC organization, which is mentioned in this article. ~RT)

FERNDALE- On Monday night candidates, activists and residents spoke to the Ferndale City Council and told them that supporting the local Drug Task Force was a bad idea.

Surprisingly, the Council listened and voted to withdraw funding for the narcotics task force which operates in the area. The reasoning offered by speakers at the Council meeting centered around the abuses suffered by state-registered medical marijuana patients at the hands of those raid teams across Michigan.

Ferndale is a success story for the people, but it is only the latest in a series of victories gained by medical marijuana activists in the battle to stop an overreaching law enforcement community.

Instagram Purges Multiple Cannabis Brands From The Site

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Since the first official legalization effort passed in Colorado, cannabis businesses have had a cold welcome from online companies. Google still refuses to allow cannabis-related websites from running on any of their advertising platforms. The same rules apply to Facebook’s ad services, as well. Just to make matters worse, the Facebook-owned sharing site Instagram recently purged several major cannabis brands from their site.

The world’s largest outdoor organic medical cannabis competition The Emerald Cup lost their Instagram, Twitter and Gmail accounts on the same day they planned to announce Damian Marley will perform at their 2016 Cup in December.

Prominent Bay Area cannabis analysis laboratory SC Labs also faced Insta-deletion last week, reports from CCTV state. SC Labs had 10,000 followers — a vital form of currency in the social media age.

The DEA Just Asked The Feds to Grow 1,000 Pounds of Weed Next Year

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Although much of the cannabis community has been waiting on bended knee, for the past few months, to learn whether the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will downgrade the Schedule I classification of the cannabis plant, a recent report over the agency’s proposed cultivation quota for 2017 suggests that no changes will likely be made in the near future.

It seems that the US government’s leading drug controls are planning to produce around 1,041 pounds of research cannabis next year, slightly less than the 1,451 pounds slated for cultivation in 2016, according to Marijuana.com.

Sockeye, a Portland ad company, takes on marijuana client

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

After working quietly for three years with a marijuana company, a well known ad firm in Portland came out Friday with its first video advertising campaign.

It features a cannabis-infused drink, but the actors could just as well be drinking beer.

The ad, which features a casual backyard party where people sip the marijuana-infused soda, underscores how much cannabis has merged into mainstream culture, at least in parts of the Pacific Northwest.
