Veterans Urge the Trump Administration to Allow Marijuana Research

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

Veterans are one of the largest demographics in this country that stand to make a giant impact in ending cannabis prohibition federally, and now Veterans urge the Trump Administration to allow marijuana research. As more research is being done, especially now that our country has more states with legalized cannabis policies, the results seem to be consistent: veterans can receive a multitude of medical and mental benefits through the use of cannabis, which is far safer than pharmaceuticals that might be prescribed for the same conditions.

Recently, The Washington Times reported about The American Legion of Veterans taking a stand against the Trump administration about this topic:

France to Drop Prison Terms for Pot Use

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

France will introduce a law by year’s end to end prison terms for cannabis use, a spokesman for the new President Emmanuel Macron said last Friday.

Macron made his pledge to reform laws on cannabis use a key campaign plank during the hard-fought race. Under current law, offenders can face a year in prison plus a fine of up to 3,750 euros ($4,200).

“Last year, 180,000 people were found to be in violation of drug laws,” said Macron spokesman Christophe Castaner, according to the French national news agency AFP. “On average these cases take up six hours of police time and the same amount for the presiding magistrate. Is the system effective? No. What is important today is to be effective, and above all to free up time for our police so they can focus more on essential matters.”

However, in what seems a strange compromise, cannabis consumption will technically remain a criminal offense. Castaner stressed that “consuming drugs remains serious and is dangerous to health.”

Homing Pigeon Flies Ecstasy into Kuwait

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

One of those quirky stories on Fox News informed us this week that authorities in Kuwait intercepted a homing pigeon that had been outfitted with a little backpack containing 178 ecstasy pills.

Kuwaiti authorities had apparently “tracked” the bird as it flew in from Iraq. A BBC News report suggests the airborne trafficker’s error was to fly too close to a border post, where customs agents were already aware that smugglers were thusly exploiting our feathered friends. (The BBC also says the payload was actually ketamine.)

Both reports say that pigeons have been used before to fly small quantities of cannabis and cocaine into prisons in Latin America—noting one such interception in Costa Rica in 2015 and another in Colombia in 2011. Presumably, in all such instances, the pigeon that was caught represented several that made it through.

Nevada races to get recreational marijuana on shelves in record time

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Now that Nevada has the green light to move forward with its early start recreational marijuana program, it could set the national record for the fastest turnaround of retail reefer. 

In a rush for kush, the state is attempting to power forward with recreational marijuana sales in a mere eight months since voters approved Question 2 in November. 

That's faster than any other state so far. 

The ballot question made it kosher for anyone over the age of 21 to possess up to an ounce of weed and up to an eighth-ounce of concentrate, but the actual sale and purchase of recreational marijuana will not be legal until July 1.

Jeff Sessions’ Phony Marijuana War

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

On Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, America’s cheerful white-hooded Smeagol, was in Memphis selling his vision of the country as a violent wasteland beset by ruthless criminals and mindless gang members preying on helpless innocents.

Speaking to an appreciative audience of about 100 law-enforcement officers—the likes of whom have been “under siege” in the United States in recent years, according to Congressman David Kustoff, a former local federal prosecutorSessions reiterated his tough-on-crime, more-is-less solution.

The only hope for civilization in our time is more mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes, locking more people up for longer periods of time.

Canadians Support Expungement of Marijuana Criminal Records

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

A recent poll reveals that a majority of Canadians support expungement of marijuana criminal records. It has certainly been interesting to follow the national trends in our northern neighbor Canada for cannabis legislation and overall public opinion about cannabis as we try to navigate this territory in the United States.

In our most recent coverage of Canadian cannabis policy, we reported on the unveiling of their plans to implement legalization via the Cannabis Act, which is an act that was introduced to Canadian Parliament in 2017 that would legalize cannabis in Canada. It is a milestone in the legal history of cannabis in Canada, alongside the 1923 prohibition.  Should the Cannabis Act pass in Canadian Parliament, this country would become the second nation in the world, after Uruguay, to regulate a legal marijuana market. Along with legalization comes the conversation about how previous marijuana laws were enforced.

A recent report from Marijuana.com shows that (62%) a majority of Canadians support expungement of marijuana criminal records and that Canadians want amnesty for marijuana convictions.
