Vermont’s Former Attorney General Has A 420 License Plate

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

Just ask Vermont’s former Attorney General,  William Sorrell, who received a parting gift not typically bestowed upon a state’s top law enforcement officer. But Sorrell isn’t your typical Attorney General. He’s one of the earliest supporters of marijuana decriminalization in the state of Vermont, and now has the license plate to prove it. That’s right, Vermont’s former Attorney General has a 420 license plate.

A Fitting Gift

Sorrell’s glistening green license plate was gifted to him courtesy of the man that hired him—former Vermont Governor Howard Dean. Appointed back in 1997, Sorrell became the longest-serving Attorney General in the state’s illustrious 226-year history after he retired earlier this year.

Dean left his post in 2003 but didn’t want to leave Sorrell hanging. The 70-year-old Sorrell recalled that before Dean retired, one of his aides reached out to Sorrell, and mentioned how the Governor wanted to give Sorrell and his three sisters vanity license plates, a gift typically bestowed upon friends of the Governor.

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

What do you get when you cross a German Cold War nuclear bunker with a new marijuana law? We promise this isn’t the set-up for some off-color joke.

Cold War Cannabis

In Bavaria, a Cold War nuclear bunker is being repurposed in the best way imaginable.

According to Christoph Rossner, this relic is destined for greatness. Greatness in the form of greenery. Rossner is the managing director of Bunker Pflanzenextrakte– a cannabis company in Germany dedicated to medical marijuana research and development. The bunker in question, the Memmingerberg Bunker, will soon house growing marijuana plants.

In essence, this bunker is set to be the largest cannabis laboratory in Germany.

In a newly produced video, Rossner gives a walking tour of the now-defunct Memmingerberg Bunker. The tour consists of the various rooms in the Cold War nuclear bunker, including a special room for the mother plants, which are essential to the entire operation.

GOP Congressman Wants to Help Businesses Sell Weed

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

Opposition to cannabis legalization often comes from the Republican side of the aisle. And when Republican politicians decide to break ranks and advocate for legal weed, they usually make their case from the business side of things. After all, legal cannabis can be a serious boost to state economies, particularly when it comes to tax revenue. But federal prohibition puts extra pressure on state-legal marijuana businesses. And that’s why one GOP congressman wants to help businesses sell weed.

Rep. Mark Sanford: This GOP Congressman Wants To Help Businesses Sell Weed

Cities and towns can add up to another 3 percent tax.

Ware voters will decide whether to adopt the local tax option during a special Town Meeting on Nov. 13.

Hatch and Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) were at the forefront of passing a bill that made it harder for the DEA to prevent the distribution of suspicious opioids.
