75 Percent of Indoor Pot Plants Come From California

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

It has been reported that California grows more weed than it knows what to do with. Now, we’re realizing that the wild, wondrous and illegal weed that once bloomed in the California’s many national forests and other outdoor locations is being cultivated indoors under LED lights with all sorts of other technologies.

And, they’re getting busted like crazy.

Federal statistics showed that in 2016, authorities seized 313,000 plants from indoor operations in California, which made up 75 percent of all indoor plants nabbed nationwide, according to the DEA.

So, not only is California growing more weed than it can use, it’s growing most of the rest of the country’s illegal weed. Maybe we already knew that, too.

Although the total accounts for only eight percent of all seizures in California, it’s the highest total in at least the past eight years.

Retail marijuana is spreading to California, Massachusetts and Maine

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Recreational marijuana sales will launch in three states next year, including the biggest one of all: California.

It's already for sale in five states, but the addition of a legal retail marijuana market in California, with its massive economy and population, will dramatically change the landscape.

California is aiming to open retail marijuana stores by January 1, Massachusetts and Maine plan to open stores next summer.

"We obviously still have a lot to do, but yes, we're going to be ready to go on January 1," said Alex Traverso, spokesman for the Bureau of Cannabis Control in California. "We will be issuing new regulations in November, so we're hard at work on those at the present time."

New York’s Medical Marijuana Program Is Crumbling

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

New York’s medical marijuana program is on the verge of total collapse because, according to a recent report from USA Today’s LoHud, the system has been designed to fail.

It will soon be two years since the state implemented its medical marijuana law, giving certain patients the ability to access cannabis products with the permission of a licensed physician.

But the program, which struggled for the first year to service even 1,000 patients, continues to face challenges, including a lack of interest from the medical community, as well as legal restrictions that have prevented enough participation to keep the program alive.

When the Compassionate Use Act was put into place, the state licensed five companies to oversee the production and distribution of medical marijuana. Yet, the state only gave these operations permission to sell specific, pharmaceutical-like products, which are expensive to manufacture and therefore costly for the consumer.

Fentanyl-Laced Weed Is Fake News, But Who’s to Blame for This Hoax?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

First: Fentanyl is a real thing, and it’s cataclysmic.

The opiate epidemic was never good, but it has become far worse and far more deadly since drug suppliers turned to fentanyl for raw material. The synthetic opiate, designed to relieve the intractable pain of terminal cancer patients and grant them a few suffering-free days or hours at the end of their lives, is prematurely ending tens of thousands more. About a third of the 64,000 people dead from drug overdoses in 2016 were killed by synthetic opiates like fentanyl and analogues that are even more powerful.

Ridiculously easy and cheap to acquire via dark-web drug marketplaces, fentanyl is turning up in bags of purported heroin, in ersatz pills claiming to be Oxycontin or completely different drugs like Xanax—and it’s also popping up in stimulants sold on the street like methamphetamine and crack.

(Authorities like to blame clandestine labs in China for flooding American communities with this killer, a gross example of 21st-century orientalism that absolves the Americans buying and distributing the drug and the American authorities seemingly incapable of doing anything about it.)

Pot Possession Expungement Bill Finally Becomes Law in Maryland

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Maryland’s Senate Bill 949 went into effect on October 1. The long-debated bill will make it easier for people who have been convicted of marijuana possession to clear their records.

Prior to the bill’s passage, anyone convicted of cannabis possession was required to wait 10 years before applying for expungement, despite the fact that Maryland decriminalized possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana in 2014.

Now, the waiting period to apply for expungement has been reduced to four years following conviction.

Senator Brian Feldman, who sponsored the piece of legislation, said the bill aims to help people who were convicted for using or possessing marijuana before it was decriminalized.

“We shouldn’t have folks, particularly younger folks, prejudiced,” Feldman said. “This is real-world stuff, and it just seems incongruent to have on the books prospectively that this is no longer a crime and yet have thousands of young Marylanders hampered with this criminal record.”
