Pot Ads Appear In TSA Security Bins At Airport

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Although marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, making anything and everything pertaining to the cannabis plant a leper in the eyes of Uncle Sam, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is reportedly being sponsored by the cannabis industry in some California airports—well, at least the TSA security bins are.

According to a recent story published by the folks at the Los Angeles Times, travelers entering the security checkpoint at Ontario International Airport, which is located in San Bernardino County, will now notice that all of the security bins used to shuttle personal belongings through the X-ray machines are lined with a sticker that reads, “Cannabis Is Legal,” followed by the tagline, “Traveling with it is not. Leave it in California.”

How Cannabis Appeared In TSA Security Bins

What makes this pothead service announcement such a big deal is the fact that this is neither a state nor federally funded initiative aimed at preventing unnecessary shakedowns in terminals all across the United States. The ads are actually part of a public awareness campaign sponsored by a seven-year-old cannabis company called Organa Brands, which is responsible for O.PENVAPE and other popular cannabis brands.

California Mayor Curses Out Marijuana Advocate

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

The state of California is set to legalize the sale of recreational cannabis in January, so naturally, there are plenty of questions regarding regulation, distribution and overall consumption of the plant. Unsurprisingly, there is an existing demographic of California citizens who aren’t quite sold on the move, despite its measured success in other West Coast states like Colorado, Nevada and Washington.

During a recent city council meeting in Colfax, California regarding a potential ban on marijuana dispensaries come January, when recreational sales become legal, one could say things got a little heated.

Or at least, one person got a little heated.

Colorado budget proposal calls for new task force to target illegal marijuana ops

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado aims to establish a state law enforcement unit dedicated to investigating and, ideally, eradicating illegal marijuana grow operations that have cropped up throughout the state.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s $30.5 billion budget proposal for the 2018-19 fiscal year included the allocation of $1.2 million of marijuana tax revenue toward the assembly of a task force within the Colorado Bureau of Investigation that would “investigate black market marijuana operations across Colorado.”

“Black market marijuana cultivation, distribution and exportation continues to increase in prevalence, especially in rural communities where local law enforcement agencies lack the resources necessary to coordinate an effective response,” Hickenlooper wrote in the letter to the legislative Joint Budget Committee. “The unit will help reduce the number of black market grow operations and the nexus to organized crime.”

Corona Invests In The Marijuana Green Rush

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

Talk about getting ‘twisted.’

For the first time ever, a major player in the wine, beer and spirits industry is set to link up with the rapidly expanding cannabis market, as the company that brews the popular Mexican brand beer Corona has just claimed its own stake in the marijuana green rush.

Two Worlds Collide

Constellation Brands, which also distills Svedka vodka, just invested a whopping $191 million in the Canadian-based cannabis company Canopy Growth Corporation.

The chunk of change is good for a 10 percent stake in the marijuana corporation, but the deal comes with an option for Constellation to purchase an additional ownership interest in Canopy in the future.

F.D.A. Warns Companies Against Claims That Marijuana Cures Diseases

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON — Everyday Advanced Hemp Oil, Bosom Lotion and CBD Edibles Gummie Men may have their fans, but the Food and Drug Administration is not among them.

Four companies selling those and dozens of other marijuana-derived dietary supplements have been warned by the F.D.A. to stop pitching their products as cures for cancer, a common but unproven claim in the industry.

“Substances that contain components of marijuana will be treated like any other products that make unproven claims to shrink cancer tumors,” said Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the agency’s commissioner, in a news release on Wednesday. “We don’t let companies market products that deliberately prey on sick people with baseless claims that their substances can shrink or cure cancer.”

Cops Seize 97 Pounds of Weed After Homeowners Invite Them In

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 4th 2017 by THCFinder

On Friday night in New York, a team of cops seized 97 pounds of weed after homeowners invited them in. Not the best way to start the weekend for the homeowners. The cops involved, however, probably got an interesting story out of it. Here’s what went down.

For many of us, this past Friday night was the start of Halloween Weekend. Halloweekend is usually celebrated by dressing up in costumes, going out with your friends and lamenting the fact that the actual day of Halloween is on a weekday.

For one trio, though, Halloweekend got off to a rather rough start.

 

In Brooklyn, New York, residents of the Crown Heights neighborhood committed the ultimate party foul. They invited police officers into a home where a pile of weed was in plain view.
