Congress to Discuss Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Although it remains uncertain whether the Trump Administration will shut down the cannabis industry when it takes over the United States later this month, nothing is stopping one ambitious lawmaker from pushing Congress to legalize the leaf nationwide.

U.S. Representative Jared Polis of Colorado, a man who has led the battle to end prohibition in the U.S. for the past several years, poured his heart out in a recent op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, calling for congressional leadership to finally cut the prohibitionary shenanigans and make way for an opportunity to legalize marijuana across the entire nation.

In the piece, Polis said he plans to introduce a bill that would allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated similar to alcohol.

Massachusetts Governor Signs Bill Delaying Pot Shop Openings

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker signed a bill Friday aimed at delaying by up to six months the opening of marijuana shops in the state until mid-2018.

An aide to the Republican governor said Baker shares the desire of state lawmakers to thoroughly prepare for the launch of a new industry distributing a controlled substance.

Baker is “committed to adhering to the will of the voters by implementing the new law as effectively and responsibly as possible,” the governor’s communications director Lizzy Guyton said.

Baker’s decision to sign the bill came as a small group of marijuana activists protested outside the Statehouse.

Now that pot’s legal in California, here’s how to grow it indoors and outdoors

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

At his midtown hydroponics gardening store, Chris Corsello saw many of his customers face a similar dilemma: They wanted to ask his advice but not tell him what they were growing.

“They’d hem and haw,” Corsello said. “You’d sort of look at them sideways and ask, ‘What kind of plant are we talking about?’

Neither side would say, he said. Confirming the plant was marijuana could have put Corsello and his customer in jeopardy.

Proposition 64 changed that, and a lot more, by making California cannabis gardening and recreational use legal as of Jan. 1.

Is CBD a Schedule 1 Drug to the DEA?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve been noticing article after article about recent changes within the DEA’s classification of CBD. It seems making sense of a new move by the DEA to place a tracking code on CBD has many online sources confused.

We’ll admit, even we were scratching our heads trying to make sense of the purpose and motives of these moves. So we did some digging to see how exactly this change would affect the cannabis industry and medicinal cannabis-using patients.

To clarify what’s going on, earlier this month the DEA published changes to the internal code system that would directly specify CBD or “Marihuana Extract” as “Meaning an extract containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis, other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.” The DEA did propose this change in 2011, however, the case has just now been closed on the matter, bringing rise to more questions.

Marijuana Over Viagra: Study Suggests Weed is Aphrodisiac AND Sexual Dysfunction Remedy

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

On top of making life difficult for people of color and making cartels and crooks filthy rich, marijuana prohibition has stymied scientific research.

This has had long-term negative consequences we’re still struggling to overcome. We’re unsure of the long-term effects of THC on the body and the brain. We don’t have a solid idea how to test for marijuana intoxication. Worse of all, worldwide marijuana prohibition interrupted vital work dating from the 1970s and 1980s where researchers examined marijuana’s value as a love aid.

Luckily for humanity, researchers from several European research universities recently dug out these dusty, presumably hairy tomesAnd as Business Insider first reported, they found that marijuana was more valuable for the unlucky in love than Spanish fly (and less disgusting, deadly and borderline rape-y).

What happened in Washington state after voters legalized recreational marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

The nation's first recreational marijuana shop opened nearly three years ago in Colorado. Since then, a growing body of research has shown that the availability of recreational marijuana — in Colorado and elsewhere — is having little to no effect on teens' propensity to smoke weed.

That's the conclusion, at least, of the official statistics out of Colorado through 2015. It's what federal data shows nationwide through this year. And it's also backed up by other federal surveys of drug use in the states where marijuana is legal.

The data on this point has been consistent enough that longtime skeptics of the merits of marijuana legalization, like Nora Volkow of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, are expressing surprise at the findings. “We had predicted based on the changes in legalization, culture in the U.S. as well as decreasing perceptions among teenagers that marijuana was harmful that [accessibility and use] would go up,” Volkow told U.S. News and World Report earlier this month. “But it hasn’t gone up.”
