Harvest time is serious business at Las Vegas medical marijuana grow warehouse

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Leave the black lights and Jim Morrison posters in the attic. The methodically cultivated marijuana grown at Nevada Organic Remedies is not your father's weed.

With a one-of-a-kind watering system, production extraction machine and multiple strains of the plant grown under very specific conditions, the 12 employees and CEO Andrew Jolley harvest up to 50 pounds of "flower" every five days in the Las Vegas grow warehouse — a process that soared to new heights Saturday, when the company's first matured plants were ripe for the taking.

"We're constantly improving methods and techniques to get a better, more purer, more desirable product at the end of the day. This is a commercial agriculture facility. It's not a warehouse; it's not some dude's basement grow," Jolley said.

"Today's our first harvest."

French Health Minister: Botched Drug Trial Causing “Brain Death” Had Nothing to Do With Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Although a number of media reports have suggested that an experimental cannabis-based painkiller is what caused a “serious accident” during a clinical drug trial this week in France, leaving one person brain-dead and hospitalizing at least five others, the nation’s health ministry has confirmed that the tragedy was not the result of a medication containing cannabinoids.

On Thursday evening, the French media published breaking news about a major calamity in the western city of Rennes in which a number of participants in a research study involving a cannabis-based drug were rushed to the hospital to seek treatment of adverse effects. The report went on to say that the worst of the injuries was brain death in at least one person, while the conditions of the other five victims were unknown. It was later revealed that all of those affected suffered from a “critical neurological condition.”

Man facing 40 years in prison for selling marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

A South Sound man could potentially spend the next 40 years in prison after he was convicted Friday of illegally growing and selling marijuana.

Prosecutors say 37-year-old Lance Edward Gloor and his business partner opened four illegal marijuana dispensaries throughout Puget Sound. The men claimed the shops were non-profit medical dispensaries, but in reality Gloor was making millions of dollars and breaking state laws, according to prosecutors.

Prior to opening the shops, Gloor was arrested in 2010 when police searched his home and found more than 70 pot plants and a firearm.

Police: Woman Had 50 Pounds of Pot in Foosball Table

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say a Canadian woman has been caught trying to smuggle more than 50 pounds of marijuana into western New York by hiding it in a foosball table.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say the woman was stopped Wednesday at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge border crossing, just north of Niagara falls.

She told officers she was heading into New York state to buy tickets for Wednesday night's $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, but a search by a K-9 team discovered 50 vacuum-sealed plastic bags with marijuana stuffed into a foosball table in her van.

Officials say the pot was worth about $60,000. The woman was turned over the New York State Police.

The same day in neighboring Vermont, a Canadian man was arrested while pulling a sled carrying more than 180 pounds of prescription pills across the border.

A Prosecutor Is Pushing To Legalize Marijuana In New Jersey

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

Welcome to New JerseyJon-Henry “J.H.” Barr, Esq. is a prosecutor in New Jersey, and has been since 2001. He has personally seen how the justice system treats marijuana users. I think that there are many prosecutors out there that support marijuana reform privately, but never express it publicly. Prosecutors serve a vital governmental function by helping put away bad guys, but that should in no way include marijuana users. However, sadly, it happens in America (including New Jersey) all the time.

Mr. Barr is refusing to sit on the sidelines and see the government ruin good people’s lives while at the same time wasting limited government resources. That’s why he is fighting to legalize marijuana in New Jersey. Per NJ Spotlight:

Barr has recently been quoted in news releases and advocacy materials related to theNew Jersey United for Marijuana Reform campaign, where he serves as a steering committee member. (He serves as an individual, not as a representative of the prosecutors association, although the association endorsed a resolution in 2014 calling for marijuana legalization, subject to “reasonable regulations.”)

Led by the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, the diverse group joined forces last year to advocate for a system in which pot is legally available for adults to purchase, and regulated and taxed by the state — similar to alcohol sales. NJUMR claims current law “wastes more than $127 million each year on a failed policy” that unfairly punishes poor communities of color without improving public safety. The campaign’s membership makes it unique; the partnership includes physicians and law enforcement officials, in addition to civil rights and community advocates.

Colorado Marijuana Sales Approach 900 Million Dollars Through November

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

colorado hempAt the beginning of 2015 it was predicted that Colorado’s marijuana industry would top the one billion dollar mark. New numbers were released which included January 2015 through November 2015, and it appears that the one billion dollar estimate will be close. Through November, 2015 Colorado marijuana sales (recreational and medical combined) approached 900 million dollars. PerThe Cannabist:

After taking a sharp dive in October, Colorado marijuana sales and taxes held steady in November 2015, according to new data from the state’s Department of Revenue.

While the state’s December data and year-end totals won’t be available until mid-February, Colorado’s cannabis shops are already approaching the $900 million sales mark with this week’s new November numbers.

From October to November, recreational marijuana sales increased by 4 percent to $51 million as medical cannabis sales dipped more than 5 percent to $29.6 million, according to Cannabist calculations based on the state’s tax data.

December would have to have a significant uptick in sales in order to cross the one billion dollar mark, but even if that doesn’t happen, Colorado’s marijuana industry had a stellar year. Can you name one state in the country that couldn’t use a billion dollar industry that largely came out of nowhere? I certainly can’t think of one. It will be interesting to see how Colorado’s industry numbers are once Oregon’s recreational marijuana industry is fully up and running, which is expected to be by the end of 2016. October sales in Colorado took a dip, which is also when limited recreational sales started in Oregon. There are a lot of factors involved, but I have to assume more than one person decided to vacation in the Pacific Northwest rather than Colorado for a marijuana vacation.
