DEA Source Confirms Schedule II Medical Marijuana is in the Works.

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

"Let me tell you how the big pharma industry works," said the DEA lawyer, picking up a glass of chardonnay and swirling it around. We were having lunch at Shutters on the Beach, and the wine, which I would pay for, cost $150 a glass. But he had promised to answer some questions from readers of my controversial article entitled "US Gov't Will Legalize Marijuana August 1."http://www.smobserved.com/story/2016/06/28/news/us-govt-will-legalize-marijuana-on-august-1/1484.html

"I'll tell you how this industry works. The big pharma people take the DEA people to dinner to discuss the legalization of Marijuana, how it's going to really work. They say:

'Listen, you and I both know that cannabis is much less dangerous, much less addictive than a lot of other schedule II stuff that we already sell, such as Oxycontin. Why don't we just go ahead and sell a few products, THC extract, TBD oil, so we can all make some money. Instead of all these small time weed clinic guys with their pot clinics banking the cash, let us bank it. The side effects are probably not nearly as bad as other drugs like Oxycontin. Because they're not the result of chemists committing unnatural acts with molecules. And a few years from now, when you need a job, you can come work for me.' I'm sure that's how it works ( with my superiors)."

Arizona Estimates $82 Million in Tax Revenue If Marijuana Legalized in November

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

A citizen initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Arizona is poised to appear on the November ballot after proponents turned in their petition Thursday with more than enough signatures to qualify.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol (CRMLA) submitted 258,582 total signatures to the Arizona Secretary of State. 150,642 valid signatures of Arizona voters are needed to place the measure on the ballot. The secretary of state is expected to determine whether the initiative has qualified by late August.

“We are very encouraged by the strong levels of support and enthusiasm we found among voters during the petition drive,” said CRMLA Chairman J.P. Holyoak. “Arizonans are ready to end the antiquated policy of marijuana prohibition and replace it with a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol. We look forward to continuing the public conversation about the initiative, and we think most will agree it is a sensible step forward for our state.”

Texas marijuana grow farm worth millions uncovered in Menard County

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

An illegal marijuana grow operation worth millions was discovered in west-central Texas.

Texas Game Wardens conducting an aerial patrol of eastern Menard County, about 150 miles west of Austin, discovered the operation June 29.

In the days since, authorities have estimated the weed crop at roughly 40,000 plants, which potentially could be worth millions of dollars, according to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.

New Coalition Fights to Keep the Weed Strong in Colorado

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

While a band of anti-pot crusaders work to cripple the Colorado cannabis industry with a proposed ballot measure that would render most of the state’s recreational products illegal, a well-funded super group, of sorts, has emerged from out of nowhere to unleash a vicious assault, of its own, that ensures the industry remains intact.

A report from the Cannabist indicates that a newly formed organization called the Colorado Health Research Council (CHRC) has officially launched a campaign aimed at preventing the passage of Amendment 139—a proposed ballot measure seeking to impose a 16 percent THC-cap on all marijuana products sold throughout the state of Colorado. It would also force the application of warning labels that claim marijuana causes negative health consequences, including “permanent loss of brain abilities.”

State Finds Undisclosed Pesticides in Pot Growing Products

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington state's Department of Agriculture says it has found traces of undisclosed pesticides in many of the marijuana-growing fertilizers and other products it tested recently.

Inspectors tested 39 products. Spokesman Hector Castro said Thursday that of the 27 tests for which it has results so far, 15 had residues of pesticides that weren't on the product's label. That means growers could be using certain pesticides without knowing it.

Some of the ingredients aren't allowed in Washington's legal marijuana system.

NASA Will Pay You To Smoke Weed for 70 days

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

Usually at some point in the day (and for some of us, multiple points) many of us find ourselves wishing we could abandon our responsibilities to return back to our beds to live out the rest of the day under a quiet refuge of blankets and smoke weed. Despite the guilt of chronic laziness, a day in bed sounds pretty darn relaxing—if only we could financially support ourselves by doing so.

Turns out, NASA might have the answer we’re all looking for—although it might require a little more “relaxation” than originally imagined. NASA is currently looking for volunteers to participate in their “Rest Studies”, in which participants will have to spend 70 straight days in bed and smoke different types of cannabis, receiving $18,000 for the period of aggressive bodily atrophy.

Participants are allowed to read books, Skype, play games, as well as smoke cannabis throughout the duration of the study. Pretty much anything is fair game, so long as you remain in bed, earning a cool $1,200 per week…

So what are the exact purposes of these studies?
