Volunteers give away free marijuana joints to the homeless on Christmas Eve in Denver

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER (KMGH) - A local nonprofit hit the streets of downtown Denver on Christmas Eve and gave away a thousand free, pre-rolled marijuana joints to the homeless and anyone else who wanted one.

"Merry Christmas and a puff puff, New Year's," said one woman who accepted a joint.

Nick Dicenzo, the founder of Cannabis Can and the one responsible for handing out the free weed, said they're trying to raise awareness about homelessness and encourage people to donate to their cause.

The cause? To raise money to buy several RV's and provide restrooms and showers for those in need. Dicenzo said their goal is to use weed for good and to bring people together to make a difference.

The Smoke Clears On California Marijuana Legalization As AUMA Takes Center Stage

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

vote for california marijuana initiativesBy Phillip Smith

After several years of jostling since the defeat of Proposition 19 in 2010, the smoke has cleared in California and it now appears that a single, well-funded marijuana legalization initiative will go before the voters next November. That vehicle is the California Control, Tax, and Regulate Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), backed by Silicon Valley tech billionaire Sean Parker, WeedMaps head Justin Hartfield, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), and a growing cast of state and national players.

The AUMU has sucked all the air out of the room for other proposed initiatives, most notably the measure from the California Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform (ReformCA), which had been widely assumed to the effort around which the state’s various cannabis factions could coalesce.

Instead, more than half of the ReformCA board members have now endorsed the AUMA, including Oaksterdam University founder and Prop 19 organizer Richard Lee, California Cannabis Industry Association director Nate Bradley, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) head Neill Franklin, Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) deputy director Stacia Cosner, and Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap head David Bronner.

Anchorage neighborhoods brace for rush of marijuana applications

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Sooner or later, anyone hoping for a permit to grow, test, manufacture or sell marijuana products in an Anchorage neighborhood will need to meet face-to-face with neighbors -- and sooner may be better.

Neighborhood groups and community councils have no regulatory authority to block a proposed marijuana business or require certain conditions. But Anchorage Assembly members, who do have the regulatory authority, have said they plan to take those sentiments into account as Alaska continues on the path to commercial marijuana. And industry representatives have taken note. 

“A number of Assembly members already projected (that) they’re going to look to community councils extensively for feedback,” said Bruce Schulte, chair of the state Marijuana Control Board.

Australia’s “Stoner Sloth” Campaign Backfires Under Relentless Scrutiny

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

An Australian anti-marijuana campaign attempting to warn teenagers against pot smoking hilariously backfired when the ads were uploaded and went viral, receiving several million YouTube views (watch below).

The ad depicted marijuana users as disturbingly oversized versions of a beloved South American mammal: the sloth. 

A compilation of three videos, the Stoner Sloth campaign was meant to scare teens away from pot with the slogan “you're worse on weed,” but instead it became an Internet sensation replete with loads of memes and satire videos.  

While the Australian government may have been pleased that the Stoner Sloth campaign is being widely disseminated, the anti-drug message succumbed to the Internet’s penchant for making fun of failed ad campaigns and for a universal love of sloths. What’s not to love? 

Furthermore, portraying pot smokers as sloths, says attn.com, is an “inoffensive comparison that stoners readily embraced.”

DEA Eases Requirements For FDA-Approved Clinical Trials On Cannabidiol

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

cannabidiol cbd cannabis marijuanaThe United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) recently eased some of the regulatory requirements imposed by the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) for those who are conducting FDA-approved clinical trials on cannabidiol (CBD), an extract of the marijuana plant.  These modifications will streamline the research process regarding CBD’s possible medicinal value and help foster ongoing scientific studies.  The DEA notified affected researchers by letter of the changes, which take effect immediately.

Federal Regulation (21 CFR 1301.18) requires researchers conducting CBD-based clinical trials under an FDA Investigational New Drug Application to have a DEA research registration.  This registration permits the possession of an approved amount of CBD for a specific research protocol.  Prior to now, researchers who expanded the scope of their studies and needed more CBD than initially approved for had to request, in writing, a modification to their DEA research registrations – potentially delaying that research while the modification underwent an approval process that includes both the DEA and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Under these changes, a previously registered CBD clinical researcher who is granted a waiver can readily modify their protocol and continue their research seamlessly.  This waiver effectively removes a step from the approval process.

Shatter, a super-high-potency marijuana, is appearing on the East Coast

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

As marijuana extracts expand their presence on the East Coast, an especially potent concentrate is appearing on law enforcement radar.

Shatter, a cannabis extract with about 80 percent THC content, is legal for recreational use in states such as Colorado and Washington, sold in medical marijuana dispensaries in other states and is faster-acting and far more easily concealed than marijuana.

On Monday, Loudoun County sheriff’s deputies intercepted a truck that had about $900,000 worth of packaged marijuana near Dulles International Airport. Included in that load was 15 pounds of shatter, in total packaged weight. Shatter, which is sold by the gram because of its potency, retails for about $60 a gram in Colorado, so 10 pounds of shatter would be worth nearly $270,000 — in a state where it is legal. Black-market shatter probably would cost much more.
