Lawmakers renew push to end federal ban on marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

A small, bipartisan group of lawmakers is renewing a push at the federal level to legalize marijuana, calling it a criminal justice issue.

The Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act, sponsored by Rep. Thomas Garrett (R-Va.), would lift the nation’s pot restrictions and allow states to decide how to regulate medical and recreational marijuana.

 

Currently, states like Colorado that legalize marijuana do so in violation of federal law. This has created a confusing patchwork of pot laws around the country.

Nearly $7 Million of Smuggled Pot Found Mixed with Bell Peppers

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

A recent shipment from Mexico was loaded with boxes of ripe stuffed peppers. But not like the ones grandma used to make on Sunday with mashed potatoes.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, with the help of their drug-sniffing pooch, discovered nearly $7 millions worth of weed stashed in a load of bell peppers, according to Tucson.com.

The thoroughly green load was found in a tractor-trailer on Saturday at the Mariposa Commercial Facility at the port of Nogales, authorities said.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 46-year-old Mexican national, was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers. Of course, the peppers and weed were seized

California’s Officials Criticize ‘Stupid’ U.S. Drug Crackdown

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s attorney general and state lawmakers again moved Monday in the opposite direction from the Trump administration, this time on penalties for criminals.

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra termed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ blanket call for harsher penalties for criminals “crazy” and “stupid,” while state senators voted to roll back penalties for drug offenders.

Sessions said Friday that federal prosecutors should file the toughest charges possible against most crime suspects.

The California critics said that is a throwback to what they called a failed war on drugs. They argued that the policy unfairly targets minorities for incarceration.

The state Senate approved ending an added three-year prison sentence for repeat drug offenders, sending the bill to the Assembly.

Workers in “Worst Place on Earth” Get MMJ Covered by Health Insurance

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

Windsor is Canada’s Detroit. Well, sort of.

Yes, Windsor is directly across the Detroit River from what’s left of downtown Motor City—and, yes, the decline and fall of automobile manufacturing is a major reason why Windsor is, in the words of some cultural tastemakers, “the worst place on earth,” or “Canada’s rectum.”

Funny, but true: According to some of the 200,000 souls who call Windsor home, its proximity to Detroit is Windsor’s main raison d’etre. We’re not a tired punchline, and we’re not a dictionary definition for urban decay, but by gum, we’re close to one! That, my friends, is Windsor.

Windsor is also where, like many other places where the economy stinks and people aren’t happy, people pop lots of opiates. Like everywhere else in the North American Rust Belt, opiate deaths are on the rise in Windsor, where overdoses have increased 190 percent during the recent, ongoing, ghastly crisis.

Marijuana Vending Machines Get Even Smarter

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

It seems that, depending on where you are, you can find almost anything in vending machines: Scantrons in colleges, cigarettes in bars and, hell, even live crabs.

Sure, weed in vending machines has been a thing for a while, provided that you have a valid medical card. What’s much harder to find are age-restricted items—where’s my beer vending machine?

The idea and implementation has always been limited by technology.

But now, American Green is bringing out a biometric vending machine, which uses fingerprint identification to allow you to buy any number of age-restricted items.

American Green introduced the first marijuana vending machine, called the ZaZZZ, into a virtually empty market. The machine required a medical marijuana card and driver’s license and operated primarily in medical states, until it underwent a rebranding to become “The American Green Machine.” The significant thing about these early machines is they only dealt marijuana, making them limited in their overall use.

Why Canadian weed producers will dominate the global marijuana market

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

In marketing strategy, there’s a term called “first-mover advantage”. It’s when a few key players in a particular industry gain an advantage because they entered into the marketplace first. These companies are able to establish strong brand recognition, shore up the best sources of funding, and build a loyal customer base simply because there aren’t any competitors in the way during their first few years of operation.

When it comes to the market for exporting weed, big Canadian LPs have clearly established a first-mover advantage. There are currently 29 countries that recognize some form of medical cannabis, but only two of those countries — Canada and The Netherlands — export weed for medical use. In fact, the medical marijuana export market is dominated by just four Canadian weed producers: Cronos Group, Canopy Growth Corporation, Aphria, and Tilray.
