California Looks to Boost Pot, Block Immigration Jails

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California lawmakers voted Thursday to set rules for the state’s nascent marijuana industry and to quash the growth of federal immigration detention as lawmakers approved major pieces of a state budget for the next fiscal year.

Lawmakers sent Gov. Jerry Brown a measure merging the state’s longstanding medical marijuana law with the much more permissive rules voters approved last year to legalize pot sales to people 21 and older. The state will develop standards for organic marijuana, allow pot samples at county fairs and permit home deliveries.

The Legislature also backed a measure to limit new beds for immigration detention, dealing a blow to the Trump administration’s efforts to boost deportation. The measure prevents local governments from signing or expanding contracts with federal authorities for immigration detention facilities. It also calls for the state’s attorney general to review conditions at the centers.

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

 

Nevada is nearing the expected July 1st start date for it’s newly passed recreational/adult-use marijuana program and regulations.  Seemingly, cannabis advocates and consumers walked away from this year’s legislative session with more ups than downs, despite the social cannabis consumption bill not passing.

A recent article from RJG goes over many of the new regulations, including taxes, edibles, DUIs, and previous convictions.

Starting in July, all marijuana — both medical and recreational — will be taxed 15 percent at cultivation, and only recreational marijuana will be sold with a 10 percent sales tax.

Sessions’ Underling Hints at Federal Changes to Marijuana Policy

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

On Tuesday, while his boss was being interrogated by the Senate Intelligence Committee over his ties to Russian officials, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was answering questions in front of another panel of senators.

While Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered his interlocutors very little—he just couldn’t remember much of what the Democrats on the committee wanted to know, you see, but was happy to chat about spy novels with the avuncular Sen. Tom Cotton—Rosenstein, author of the memo that President Donald Trump used as justification to fire FBI chief James Comey, whose agency was investigating those same Russian ties, brought at least something concrete to the table: federal policy on marijuana policy is likely to change.

Probably! But he can’t (or won’t) say when, or to what. But watch this space.

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

A former marijuana enforcement officer and a Denver-based cannabis entrepreneur were indicted by a grand jury in connection with a massive trafficking ring that allegedly shipped marijuana out of state, while also fleecing numerous investors in a license-peddling scheme.

According to the indictment, first reported by the Cannabist on Tuesday, former marijuana enforcement officer, Renee Rayton; weed entrepreneur Scott Pack and his businesses Harmony Green LLC and HGCO LLC were charged as part of a broader interstate marijuana smuggling operation.

Growers and suspected middlemen in the operation, Travis Bridle and John Edward Loos, were also indicted.

According to the indictment obtained by the Cannabist, Pack’s  businesses held 14 marijuana licenses but never made a legal sale. They instead used them as a front for the trafficking operation.

Three Brits Admit to Turning Nuclear Bunker into Huge Cannabis Factory

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

An underground, almost completely impenetrable bunker, was discovered in the United Kingdom where British cops, acting on a tipoff, found a large-scale cannabis factory and 4,000 pot plants.

The police finally rounded up three men who admitted their part in running the bunker-turned-weed-farm.

Using keys found in the men’s possession after their arrest, the cops entered the bunker, where they found it was being powered by over a quarter of a million dollars worth of stolen electricity.

“There are approximately 20 rooms in the building, split over two floors, each 200 feet long and 70 feet wide,” Detective Inspector Paul Franklin, of the Dedicated Crime Team, told the Express“Almost every single room had been converted for the wholesale production of cannabis plants, and there was a large amount of evidence of previous crops.”
