Marijuana farms are burning in California wildfires

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Blazes have destroyed a number of farms in Mendocino County right before legal recreational sales begin in California.

Cannabis business owners who lose their crops have little reprieve.

"Nobody right now has insurance," said Nikki Lastreto, secretary of the Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association. "They might have insurance on their house, but not on their crop."

Cannabis cultivators cannot insure their businesses because federal law prohibits marijuana, which means that financial institutions can't go near it.

Northern California Employers Are Re-Examining Drug Testing Policies

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

In light of legalization and the growing prevalence of cannabis consumption, Northern California employers are re-examining drug testing policies. Are they swayed by science? By logic? Or are they just losing out on prospective employees because of unreliable testing methods? It seems that there are a lot of factors at play here.

DRUG TESTING

If you’ve had or applied for a job in the United States, you have probably been subjected to at least one mandatory drug screening. Job offers that are contingent upon clean urine are ubiquitous. It seems that everyone and their mother has strategies for passing drug tests! Or at least beating the system one way or another.

But in recent years, more and more people are questioning the validity and necessity of mandatory drug testing. Especially when it comes to employment. Although prospective employees have (rightfully) complained about this compulsory testing for years, employers are officially on the bandwagon.

Student Kills Campus Cop Over Drug Paraphernalia

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

A student at Texas Tech University reportedly shot and killed a campus police officer earlier this week after evidence of drug activity was discovered in his dorm room.

According to a report from Newsweek, campus police were called out Monday night to conduct a “welfare check” on 19-year-old Hollis Daniels. It seems Daniels’ mother wanted police to look in on her son after a number of his classmates reported that he had been displaying “odd behavior” and that he was possibly suicidal.

But when officers arrived on the scene, they did not find a student in distress—what they found was an empty room containing some illegal contraband. University spokesman Chris Cooke confirmed with the news source that police made the decision to enter Daniels’ room, where they discovered “drug paraphernalia,” despite the fact that he was not present.

Oregon Schools Get Millions from Pot Taxes

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Thanks to cannabis legalization in Oregon, the State's Department of Revenue has paid out $85 million in revenue from the state marijuana taxes to the state’s public schools, health services, local governments and police departments. The total amount of local and state marijuana taxes was more than $108 million, with almost $10 million allocated for cannabis regulation to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and the Department of Revenue.

This is a huge win for the state of Oregon and for the cannabis legalization movement overall. When I was volunteering for the Yes on Measure 91 campaign in 2014, I founded a group called Moms for YES on Measure 91 . Helping support Oregon's schools (and ultimately, our children) was one of the biggest reasons that other moms/parents were in support of cannabis legalization and regulation, and it is so rewarding to see it becoming a reality. Many other states that are coming online with legalization initiatives look to Oregon for an example and numbers like this are just more proof of why a legalized, regulated system is better than an unregulated market for cannabis.

Porn Star Pleads Guilty to Conspiring to Sell $1M Worth of Weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Pulling off a million dollar weed deal must be hard enough. It’s probably even harder for a high-profile adult film star. But gay porn star Chris Bines thought he’d try his hand at it. Ultimately, though, the porn star pleaded guilty to conspiring to sell $1M worth of weed.

Born Steven Sholly, Chris Bines has made a name for himself as the star of popular gay porn films Randy BlueRaging Stallion and most recently Dark Matter, with the studio Raging Hot Falcon.

Bines’ legal troubles haven’t seemed to have had any effect on his adult film career, however. In fact, it seems the studio is riding the wave of Bines’ sudden moment in national news headlines to hype his newest film. Raging Hot Falcon recently released several brand-new scenes featuring Bines.

 

According to ST8UPGayPorn, in a (NSFW!) post about the porn star, Bines shot those scenes in Las Vegas. But Bines is currently unable to travel outside Florida, where his case is pending.

Want to study the business of marijuana? There's a degree program for that

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

LANSING, Mich. — Alex Roth has gotten into the habit of pulling out his cellphone and showing skeptical friends a screen shot of the classes he’ll have to take to get his bachelor of science degree from Northern Michigan University.

“When they hear what my major is, there are a lot of people who say, 'Wow, cool dude. You’re going to get a degree growing marijuana,’ ” said the 19-year-old sophomore at Northern Michigan University in Marquette. “But it’s not an easy degree at all.”

His four-year medicinal plant chemistry degree — geared toward the burgeoning marijuana business that is about to explode in Michigan next year — includes classes such as organic chemistry, biochemistry, soils, biology, gas and liquid chromatography, biostatistics, genetics, accounting, financial management and perspectives on society.
