77 Percent of California Clones Contaminated by Pesticides

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

After an extensive study by the California-based cannabis testing lab Steep Hill, researchers have determined that most have of the state’s ubiquitous pesticide problem is due to the process of cloning plants. This comes on the heels of a report from last October which estimated about 84 percent of California-grown weed was not “fit for human consumption.”

CLONES CONTAMINATED BY PESTICIDES

Traditionally, there are several different ways a plant becomes contaminated by pesticides. The report cites the following most common causes:

  • Knowingly use inputs that contain pesticides (such application may be known to some in the operation, but not others),
  • Knowingly use a product whose pesticide content was unknown to them (lack of education, lack of proper labeling),
  •  Grow in locations that are subject to pesticide “drift” from the application by a neighbor (wind, water, soil, insects, animals).

California is trying to educate people about marijuana before recreational sales start

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Months before California allows the sale of marijuana for recreational use, the state has launched an education campaign about the drug, including highlighting the potential harms of cannabis for minors and pregnant women.

The state is scheduled to issue licenses starting Jan. 2 for growing and selling marijuana for recreational use, expanding a program that currently allows cannabis use for medical purposes.

In response, the California Department of Public Health has created website to educate Californians about the drug and its impacts, including how to purchase and safely store cannabis.

Massachusetts Courts Strike Down Roadside Sobriety Tests for Weed

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts issued a unanimous ruling Sept. 19, voiding court testimony based on roadside sobriety tests administered to drivers suspected of driving while high. As the state prepares to roll out legalization, the ruling helps address ongoing questions about how cannabis might affect driving.

AN IMPORTANT RULING

According to the Boston Globe, the court found that while sobriety tests are effective when it comes to finding drunk drivers, there is no scientific consensus that the same roadside sobriety tests are effective or reliable at finding drivers under the influence of cannabis.

The court stated that while there is clear scientific evidence that such field sobriety tests can be used to measure blood alcohol content of at least 0.08 percent, no scientific evidence exists showing a correlation between performance on these tests and “marijuana intoxication.”

L.A. presses forward with proposed rules for marijuana businesses despite industry concerns

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Los Angeles lawmakers tentatively backed a sweeping set of proposed regulations for businesses that grow, sell, process and distribute marijuana Monday, the next step toward giving cannabis the stamp of local legitimacy.

But industry groups said that recent changes to the proposed rules would force existing marijuana growers and manufacturers to shut down as they wait to get city licenses, devastating the industry and triggering layoffs.

Climbers Rescued From Mountain After Smoking Too Much Weed

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Four hikers had to call for help from search and rescue over the weekend when they got a little too high on top of England’s tallest mountain. The group was eventually brought down to safety, but the debacle has stirred up local controversy.

On Saturday evening around 6:30 p.m., Cumbria police were called to help rescue a group of four hikers who were stuck at the top of Scafell Pike. Apparently, the men made it to the top of the peak earlier that afternoon and at some point, consumed what was obviously a little too much weed.

They ended up getting so high they felt like they wouldn’t be able to hike back down again. Answering the emergency call, local police worked with the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team.

The rescue group, which is made up of volunteers who live in the region, successfully brought the stoned hikers back to safety and everybody was off the mountain by 9:45 p.m.

Most Mormons Support Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

]The following might throw a wrench in your preconceived notions, but we can assure you it’s legit. According to the most recent surveys, the majority of “active” Mormons in Utah are in favor of medical marijuana.

CANNABIS AND UTAH

It might be common knowledge, but the vast majority of Mormon people abstain from drinking, drugs and other acts of hedonism like premarital sex. The state of Utah is predominantly Mormon, and their policies and political leanings often reflect that.

In accordance with these views, Mormon leaders in the state have historically been opposed to medical marijuana. They have even battled state lawmakers and politicians about the matter. Although, CBD oil is permitted–but only for the treatment of epilepsy and only if the patient purchases it in another state.

In 2015, Republican Senator Mark B. Madsen proposed a bill that would lift the 100-year prohibition of cannabis in Utah. Seriously, Utah banned cannabis back in 1915–they were one of the first states to do so. The measure, called Senate Bill 259, would have allowed Utah to have a medical marijuana program. The bill failed.
