Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

An authoritative report done by the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) into northern California’s pot-growing area has uncovered dozens of accounts of sexual abuse and exploitation of workers known as “trimmigrants,” or bud trimmers.

Students from Humboldt State University, and others, reported being forced to give their bosses blow-jobs to get paid or being offered higher wages if they trim topless.

Amy Jarose, an experienced trimmigrant in the region, told investigative journalists that when a grower she was working for in the mountains began to pressure her for sex, she immediately left without her pay.

Opioid use decreases in US states that legalize medical marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

New research shows a decline in the use of opioid painkillers in US states that allow people to treat pain with medical marijuana, affirming the fears of Big Pharma who have been vigorously seeking to frustrate efforts to legalize the herb.

Columbia University researchers examined data from 1999 to 2013 and found an association between a state legalizing medical marijuana and a reduction in testing positive for opioids after dying in a car accident, particularly among drivers aged 21 to 40.

U.S. Defense Secretary Wants Pentagon to Employ Marijuana Users

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the United States government still considers marijuana one of the most dangerous drugs in the world, the nation’s leading defense official says he does not believe a job applicant’s history with the herb should be a contributing factor in disqualifying them from military service.

Earlier this week, during TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF event, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter told those in attendance that the Pentagon would be open to hiring individuals that have experimented with marijuana. Answering a question about whether he would ever consider offering an engineering position to someone who may have smoked weed at the Burning Man festival, Carter replied, “yes, we can be flexible in that regard, and we need to.”

UK: Members of Parliament Call for Medical Marijuana to Be Made Legal

A year after an outpouring of support for a public petition, demanding the full legalization of marijuana, forced Parliament to give the issue some consideration, an influential group has emerged with plans to lobby for the legalization of medical marijuana for the entire scope of the United Kingdom.

Earlier this week, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Drug Policy Reform published a new report suggesting that the British government should legalize medical marijuana—retail sale and home cultivation—because a considerable number of patients are now being driven into the black market to gain access to this medicine.
