Los Angeles Ponders the Prohibition of Concentrate Production

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

As Los Angeles unfurls its long list of rules and regulations, as part of its effort to establish order in the state’s legal weed industry, input has been effusive and pencil pushing endless.

Home to four million people, L.A, is set to be a blockbuster market, but city voters want their say in how the operation is going to be set up.

One thing folks don’t want is for anyone to set anything on fire. After all, California is only just now recovering from a long period of drought, and they hate the smell of smoke.

That being the case, City Hall’s proposal to outlaw “volatile cannabis manufacturing” may seem logical to some, but it’s not going down too well among dabbers, not to mention practical matters like millions in lost revenue.

Why Jeff Sessions’ Successor Could Be Worse for Drug Reform

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Someday—perhaps someday very soon, judging by how often his boss is harassing him into obstructing justice, online—Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III will no longer be attorney general of the United States.

When Sessions goes, the U.S. will be different: An authoritarian embodiment of the Republicans’ Southern Strategy, who has no compunction against lying under oath about meetings with foreign agents trying to influence the democratic process, will no longer run the U.S. Justice Department.

That will be good!

Less good is the fact that Sessions’s replacement, whomever he (and it will almost certainly be a he) turns out to be—Rudy Giuliani, Ted Cruz, Hulk Hogan—may wield broad new powers to unilaterally ramp up the drug war, outlawing new substances without input from Congress or the public.

Arkansas Warns MMJ Patients They Can’t Buy Guns

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

There’s a battle brewing in the state of Arkansas over the right to bear arms while having a medical marijuana card. The duel between state law versus the federal law of the land is not new, Illinois has also issued warnings in the past. The issue at hand is that cannabis remains federally illegal and people who want to buy guns are being told by the Arkansas Department of Health that they can either have the card, or the ability to buy a gun.

This warning isn’t sitting well with some gun enthusiasts.

Robert Reed, a Navy Veteran who served his country for 16 year, suffers PTSD along medical conditions which medical marijuana would help. He tells NWA news, “I will not apply for a med license, and risk my livelihood and my safety.”

How a Federal Raid, a Brutal Home Invasion & Over-Regulation Sunk Southern Oregon’s Best-Known Grower

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Everybody in southern Oregon knew James Bowman. That was the problem.

A lifelong grower who’d been cultivating cannabis in multiple states since he was 16, the 57-year-old Bowman and his “High Hopes Farms,” in unincorporated Applegate in Jackson County, boasted of serving more medical marijuana patients than any other cannabis farm in Oregon. 

He’d been growing there for 11 years, just a few years after Oregon legalized medical cannabis. Maybe he was right. Either way, that reputation was one big reason why Bowman was raided in 2012 by federal agents. Feds seized his entire 800-plant crop and 400 pounds of processed cannabis, the supply intended for 200 Oregon medical marijuana patients.

Jeff Sessions Sued in Lawsuit Challenging the Constitutionality of the Controlled Substances Act

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

Beleaguered” Attorney General Jeff Sessions was named a defendant today in a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Controlled Substances Act as it pertains to Cannabis/Marijuana. This comes on the heels of our post about Sessions and his secret weapon against weed.  In a 90-page Complaint (which can be found at the bottom of this article), attorneys representing five plaintiffs maintain that the CSA, in classifying Cannabis as a “Schedule I drug,” is so irrational that it violates the U.S. Constitution.

In their Complaint, plaintiffs demonstrate that the Federal Government does not, and could not possibly, believe that Cannabis meets the definition of a Schedule I drug, which is reserved for the most dangerous of substances, such as heroin, LSD and mescaline. By way of comparison, cocaine and crystal meth are considered Schedule II drugs and are thus considered less addictive and less dangerous.

Employers Advised to Hold Off on Testing for Pot Use

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — A Maine official says employers shouldn’t test for marijuana because state law doesn’t allow workers to be fired for using it.

A committee tasked with establishing new regulations in the wake of the legalization of recreational marijuana heard testimony Monday from a labor department official who said the state’s current rules are an outlier.

The Portland Press Herald reports that Julie Rabinowitz said employers currently can’t fire an employee or reject an applicant for failing a drug test. She said employers need more leeway to maintain drug-free workplaces.

The committee said the issue would be best handled by the Legislature’s labor committee.
