Why Buying Medical Marijuana Online Could Be Dangerous

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

If you’re buying medical marijuana online, you may not be getting what you’re paying for. Buying medical marijuana online could be dangerous if you’re only looking to ingest CBD. Your CBD could be stronger than stated or an under-labeled waste of money. It could even contain significant levels of THC. Buying medical marijuana online could be dangerous for anyone who gets drug tested or even parents treating their children’s seizure disorders with CBD.

How Accurate Are Online CBD Products?

Researchers from the study published this week in JAMA bought and tested 84 products from 31 different companies that claim to have CBD content on the packaging.

The results of testing revealed 42 percent of the products had more CBD than labeled. Having too much CBD isn’t that big of a deal unless you need precise doses. However, 26 percent of products had less CBD than advertised.

Michigan Police To Begin Testing Drivers’ Saliva For Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

In an effort to better test drivers suspected of operating a vehicle under the influence of illicit substances, police from 12 Michigan agencies will experiment using handheld devices that will test drivers’ saliva for the use of several drugs.

A New Initiative

The Michigan State Police will begin a one-year pilot program for roadside drug testing starting on Wednesday, November 8. Five Michigan counties will participate in the program—Berrien, Delta, Kent, St. Clair and Washtenaw.

The device, titled the Alere DDS2 oral fluid test instrument, will test for six substances—amphetamine, benzodiazepines, cannabis, cocaine, methamphetamine and opiates.

The instrument will record results dependent on threshold limits set by the manufacturer. According to Michigan State Police spokeswoman Shanon Banner, thresholds for saliva differ from traditional blood tests.

Could The Term ‘Marijuana’ Be Banned In Canada?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

As the months toward legalization in Canada wane, the term “cannabis” has slowly, but surely, overtaken the word “marijuana” as the primary term used to refer to the plant.

But why?

Upon first glance, one would probably assume it’s just a professional term, used to legitimize a drug that was once considered heinous. However, the real reason behind the sweeping change might surprise you.

While it is true that government officials in Canada are holding off from using typical slang words associated with illegal cannabis,  marijuana always seemed to be one of the more formal forms of the world. However, in reality, the word holds more negative connotations than any street name ever had.

The term marijuana is actually linked to the “reefer madness” era. The word first gained popularity in the 1930s as an attempt to demonize the plant, by associating it with Mexican immigrants. The term marijuana or marihuana was, at the time, the most commonly used word in Mexican/Spanish culture.

The conference, a meeting of the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD), is being held November 6 – 10 to discuss 17 psychoactive substances, including CBD. The substances will be reviewed for their potential for dependence, abuse and harm to health.

The ECDD will then make recommendations to the United Nations Secretary-General on the necessity and degree of possible regulation for the drugs.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Police in Portland today said that they busted an illegal marijuana cultivation operation in a warehouse on Friday of last week.
