Michigan State Police Launch Roadside Saliva Drug Testing

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

In more weed news from Michigan, officials are experimenting with testing drivers for driving under the influence of drugs. The Michigan State Police began an experimental one-year program that attempts to determine whether a driver is under the influence. Berrien, Delta, Kent, St. Clair and Washtenaw Counties will be part of the program.

Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) police officers with special training will enforce the program. The DRE will submit a preliminary saliva analysis using a mouth swab for drivers they suspect are driving under the influence. The Alere DDS2 oral fluid test instrument is designed to detect, amphetamines, methamphetamines, benzodiazepines, cocaine, opiates and marijuana within 5 minutes.

Asset Forfeiture Gone Wild: After Pot Raids, Cops Seize 7 Houses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

If you live in the bicoastal bubble ensconcing most of America’s elites, you may be surprised to learn the true value of things in much of the rest of the country. Home values—and the cost of houses seized by police following a marijuana raid—are a fine example.

In much of Middle America, including the heartland and Rust Belt areas that handed Donald Trump the presidency, the difference between buying a home and a fully loaded, full-size pickup truck is merely the choice of where you’d like to spend the same $40,000 to $50,000. Would you like four rooms or four-wheel drive?

I point this out only to temper the outrage somewhat and put into full context this gem from Michigan, where state authorities have forfeited—that is, seized—seven homes involved in a marijuana raid earlier this year.

Sessions: Obama Marijuana Policy Remains In Effect

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

Obama-era guidance that allows states to legalize marijuana without federal interference remains in effect, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday during a congressional hearing. He also conceded that cannabis is not as dangerous as heroin and that a current budget rider prevents the Department of Justice from prosecuting people who are in compliance with state medical marijuana laws.

"Our policy is the same, really, fundamentally as the Holder-Lynch policy, which is that the federal law remains in effect and a state can legalize marijuana for its law enforcement purposes but it still remains illegal with regard to federal purposes," Sessions said, referring to his predecessors as attorney general during the Obama administration.

Science Says There’s No Such Thing As An ‘Addictive Personality’

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

People often attribute the disease known as addiction to a person having an “addictive personality.” But scientists disagree with this and call it an old adage. They say it doesn’t hold any weight in the realm of the real problem. So why is it that certain people are more susceptible to addiction than others?

There is actually a complicated cornucopia of reasons why some people have a tendency toward addiction. Most of which seems to stem from a desperate need for true friends. And it might not hurt if those folks had some weed.

 

First of all, the term “addictive personality” is a heaping pile of bullshit, according to neuroscience journalist Maia Szalavitz. In her book “Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction,” she writes that this commonly used expression is only a myth. Furthermore, there is absolutely no defining personality trait in addicts than those living clean and sober lives.

Las Vegas Has a Weed Drive-Thru

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

LAS VEGAS — People will now be able to buy weed as quickly as a Big Mac in Las Vegas, Nevada now that the city has opened its first drive-thru marijuana dispensary. The unique marijuana dispensary is the first weed drive-thru in the United States and will be open 7 days per week.

The Nuwu Cannabis Marketplace is owned the by the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe and is located downtown on tribal lands. The dispensary opened last Friday and will try to provide quick service in one minute or less for customers who are disabled or elderly and have trouble getting in and out of their cars.

 

Orders can be place online before customers arrive, speeding up the process and making things more convenient for patients and consumers. Adults 21 and over can legally purchase marijuana in Nevada and can possess up to one ounce of weed provided they have a driver's license or a government-issued identification card.

The drive-thru used to be a $30,000 bank teller window that was sent from Washington state. The window has bullet-proof glass and is equipped with two surveillance cameras.

Defense Bill Could Allow Soldiers To Use Medical Marijuana In Combat

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

Although the cannabis plant remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government, there is a new defense bill on the table calling for soldiers on active duty to be allowed the use of experimental medications, including medical marijuana, while in the trenches of battle. Yes, you read that right: Soldiers might soon be allowed to use medical marijuana in combat.

According to a report from Politico, the measure (HR 2810) would give the secretary of defense the power to grant military service members working outside the United States the freedom to use drugs that have not yet been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The goal of the bill is “to reduce the number of deaths or the severity of harm to members of the armed forces… caused by a risk or agent of war,” reads a conference report.

The problem is Congress, and the many agencies that make up the beast we know as Uncle Sam, cannot seem to agree on the most appropriate path to take on this matter.
