California Cannabis Company Donates Space to American Red Cross Fire Relief

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

California’s largest medical cannabis manufacturer donates 12,000 square feet for American Red Cross to stage its regional headquarters.

The State of California is having a particularly rough season of wildfires this year. While cannabis farms have likely been affected by wildfires in the past, this is the first year (at least in my recent memory) that so many media outlets have reported on the number of cannabis crops that are actually threatened with burning down.

I have been so happy to see the number of cannabis companies that have stepped up to help with this state of emergency in California, and felt it was important to share this news release that crossed my desk today...

Who’s Currently in Charge of Federal Cannabis Policy?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

As Donald Trump took office in January, cannabis advocates across the country braced for what seemed like a looming and inevitable federal crackdown on marijuana. While the president’s views on cannabis were as erratic as his stance on many other issues, Trump’s cabinet nominees eliminated any doubt about the track the administration would take toward weed. Trump appointed folks with extremely anti-cannabis views to the three positions directly involved with federal marijuana policy. But with the Trump administration bleeding staff like a stuck pig, many are wondering who’s currently in charge of federal cannabis policy?

TWO OUT OF THREE AIN’T BAD

As the shape of the Trump administration came into focus back in January of this year, many commentators feared that the federal government was preparing to jump start a new chapter in the failed War on Drugs.

But over the last few weeks, high profile resignations in the Trump administration suggest the federal government couldn’t coordinate a crackdown on cannabis if it wanted to.

That’s because two out of the three most important positions regarding federal weed policy are currently empty. So who’s currently in charge of federal cannabis policy?

California Sheriff Appeals to Feds in Pot ‘State of Emergency’

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

In today’s edition of Buzzkill News, a California sheriff appeals to feds in pot ‘state of emergency.’ A state of emergency due to weed in California? Is this for real?

Last month in California’s far-north Siskiyou County, supervisors voted to declare a “state of emergency” over illegal marijuana cultivation. And now, Jon Lopey, the hardline California sheriff, is appealing to feds due to a pot “state of emergency.” In other words, he’s calling upon U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions for federal aid in his war on cannabis. 

“I told him what the situation was here … [that] you should be concerned, because most of this illicit cannabis is going across state lines to other states, to contaminate other jurisdictions,” Lopey summed up in his letter to Sessions, according to the Redding Record Searchlight. “Don’t forget the rural counties.”

Recreational marijuana business ban and fountain revival on Fountain Valley's agenda

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

A proposal going before the Fountain Valley City Council on Tuesday would ban commercial recreational marijuana activities in the city.

California voters last year passed Proposition 64, legalizing recreational marijuana use for adults, but the law allows for local control. Cities have until the end of this year to preemptively ban marijuana-related commercial activity. The state will begin issuing business licenses for shops and other commercial endeavors Jan. 1.

In 2015, Fountain Valley banned medical marijuana dispensaries and other commercial activity in the city.

NEWS Cannabis Companies Donate $50K to Wildfire Victims

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

A couple of cannabis companies under the “CannaCraft” brand are stepping up to help those in need. Any medical marijuana patients who were displaced or evacuated because of the Northern California fires are eligible to receive complimentary cannabis products. When cannabis companies donate $50K to wildfire victims, it’s hard to argue that legal cannabis is causing harm.

Many victims of the wildfires have lost their homes, including members of CannaCraft’s staff. Their growing facility is in Northern California, so the impact of the wildfire hit close to home.

Over 120,000 acres of land have burned and upwards of 25,000 residents have been evacuated. Thousands of homes and businesses were lost, and there are still hundreds of missing and injured people out there.

CannaCraft’s manufacturing facility in Santa Rosa was fortunately unaffected and remains operational. The brand claims they “are committed to continuing to serve our patients and helping rebuild” the community. Products made out of their facility, like AbsoluteXtracts vape pens and Be Kind Flowers, will be gifted to medical marijuana patients hurting from the damage caused by the fire.

U.S. Army to Grant More Marijuana Waivers

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

The powers that be have permitted the U.S. Army to grant more marijuana waivers. The decision comes at a critical time for the United States’ Armed Forces. The Army has a goal of 80,000 newly recruited soldiers. According to military sources, the Army plans to meet their recruitment goal by accepting prospective soldiers who would otherwise be considered less than desirable—including those who have admitted to smoking weed.

If you don’t know much about the recruitment process of the United States Army, here is a very basic explanation.

The first step is to take an exam called the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. Then, prospective soldiers must pass a physical examination, including a drug screening. The third step is a meeting with a service enlistment counselor to discuss your potential career in the Armed Forces, and then finally, the fourth step is to take an oath.

If you’ll notice, the first step towards enlisting is taking the exam. This is designed to weed through poorly qualified potentials to build a stronger, more efficient military. There are those with lower test scores who get in though; they’re known as Category Four. But they only make up a small percentage of recruited soldiers.

That number, however, is growing.
