D.C. Council Votes To Permanently Ban Social Marijuana Consumption Outside Of Residences

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana washington state felony drug possessionThe D.C. Council today again reversed its position on a law banning the consumption of marijuana anywhere outside a private home, even though it is legal for adults to use and possess up to two ounces of marijuana in the District. By voting 7-6 today in favor of B21-107, which would make the “social use ban” permanent, the council ignored its own prior decision to make the ban temporary and set up a task force to study the issue.

The task force, which the council voted to create on February 2, was intended to study how D.C. could move forward to end the ban and allow marijuana consumption in private venues. Although that bill will not officially become law until April 29, following congressional review, steps have already been taken by the mayor and the council to set up the task force.

This is the second unusual reversal by the council. Earlier this year, the council voted to let the ban expire but then reopened the vote and reversed itself after receiving pressure from the mayor. There will be one more vote on the social consumption ban before it is finalized.

Statement from Kate M. Bell, legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project, who has lobbied on this issue since the initial hearing on the ban:

Scientists Successfully Breed Kale with Cannabis

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

A Brooklyn-based lab has successfully bred the world’s first Kale x Cannabis hybrid. The company, Williamsburg Wonders, announced today that the new cross, called Kaleabis, would be available as a superfood juice shot in Oregon dispensaries this summer.

The successful cross is the culmination of a two-year project that began with a Kickstarter campaign by Williamsburg Wonders’ founders, Mark and Todd Takota. When the Takota brothers announced their desire to breed a plant with the dietary benefits of kale and the therapeutic properties of cannabis, funding poured in. The project reached its investment goal in less than a week, significantly outpacing other local investment opportunities like DIY mustache wax and kombucha colonics

Georgia: Leaked Emails Show Governor Never Intends to Expand Medical Marijuana Law

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

Even while the majority of Georgia residents stood in favor of legislation to establish a cultivation and distribution system that would prevent the state’s registered medical marijuana patients from engaging in drug trafficking, a new report shows that Governor Nathan Deal had doomed the concept of growing weed on Georgia soil long before the bill ever had a chance to be slaughtered in the state legislature.

An internal email trail between Governor Deal’s office and Representative Allen Peake, the lawmaker responsible for introducing the cultivation proposal, reveals that ever since Georgia officials got back from a Colorado fact-finding mission in November 2015, the fix has been in to ensure a medical marijuana expansion plan never sees the light of day.

Brookings Bombshell: America Needs High-Quality Marijuana Medications

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

John Hudak, a researcher with the nonpartisan Brookings Institution think tank, concluded in a March 22 study that the White House and Congress must act immediately to save American lives by passing the CARERS act, a marijuana liberalization law that would lift barriers to medical marijuana research, protect doctors and patients, and ultimately re-schedule marijuana so that therapeutic formulations can be made available in all 50 states and territories.

Children are dying due to the absence of safe, tested, uniform pot products, Hudak writes in “The Medical Marijuana Mess — A prescription for fixing a broken policy. Parents are becoming refugees in their own country — moving thousands of miles to experiment with non-standardized marijuana regimens far from their home states. For those that can’t move, an unregulated, online industry of extract sellers likeMorgue Juice has popped up promising cure-alls to meet vast demand.

Hemp Injunction Against Alex White Plume Lifted

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

In 2000, when the Oglala Lakota tribe passed a tribal initiative clearing the way for legal hemp agriculture on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota, two crops were planted. One was grown by the Slim Buttes Land-Use Association; the other was grown by the family of Alex White Plume on their family land. The hemp never made it to harvest. In August of that same year, heavily armed DEA, FBI and local and tribal police raided both of the hemp fields and hauled the plants away.

The raid hardly deterred the White Plume family. The next year they planted their fields again with hemp. But, again, the crops were raided and seized. They tried once more in 2002 and were raided a third time. At that point, the Feds had enough and slapped Alex White Plume, a former tribal president, with an injunction preventing him from planting seeds again.

Gary Johnson predicts Obama will reclassify marijuana on way out of office

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

Former New Mexico Gov. and 2016 Libertarian White House hopeful Gary Johnson says he thinks President Obama is going to remove marijuana from the government’s “Schedule I” list of narcotics considered particularly harmful and addictive on his way out of office.

“It’s going to be just like alcohol,” Mr. Johnson told The Washington Times Tuesday. “I’m going to predict that Obama, when he leaves office, is going to deschedule marijuana as a Class I narcotic. I wish he would have done that to this point, but I think he’s going to do that going out the door. That’s a positive.”

Marijuana is currently on the Schedule I list alongside drugs like LSD and heroin. The Drug Enforcement Agency defines Class I drugs as having a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use.
