Arizona Judge Rules Medical Cannabis Extracts Are Illegal

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve gotten reports that an Arizona judge has ruled that medical cannabis extracts are illegal. We have also just learned that in Arizona, there is a legal difference between marijuana and cannabis. Even though they are literally the same plant.

Wait, what?

Cannabis vs. Marijuana

According to Arizona state law, there is a difference between marijuana and cannabis.

In 2010, when Arizona residents voted in favor of instating a medical marijuana program, the term “marijuana” referred to the medicine in flower form “and any mixture or preparation thereof.” Lawmakers wrote the definition of “cannabis,” however, in the criminal code before 1960.

Arizona law views cannabis as a narcotic derived from marijuana.

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

The investigation was called Operation Green Giant and was a joint effort. Joon H. Kim, who is the acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney, said that the 10 suspects smuggled $22 million worth of weed.

Operation Green Giant

Federal agents say that the smuggling ring mailed more than 6000 pounds of marijuana to the Bronx, Manhattan and New Rochelle, NY from March of last year until this month. Most were sent via FedEx. The investigation was called Operation Green Giant and was a joint effort between several agencies including the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, the NYPD, the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the U.S. Secret Service, Homeland Security and the U.S. Marshals Service, along with several others. Agents said that several of the suspect’s apartments were searched where they found pot, cocaine and cash. Agents also said that they found a sawed-off shotgun and three handguns in the raid. Along with the busts in New York, DEA agents confiscated more than $230,000 from one suspect the week before the arrests at the San Francisco International Airport.

New Zealand to Vote on Marijuana Law Reform

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

It appears New Zealand could be the latest country to get in on the green rush.

Per the NZ Herald, a public referendum regarding the use of legal recreational cannabis will be held prior to, or during the 2020 election, following an agreement between the country’s two prominent political parties, the Green and Labour parties.

Cannabis in New Zealand

During a special general meeting conducted by Green Party delegates Thursday night, several policy agreements with the Labour party were under discussion, including topics ranging from budget increases to mental health services to the aforementioned referendum regarding the legal use of cannabis.

According to Green Party leader James Shaw, this was the first time the party made their policy gains available to the public, as they were still under negotiations with the Labour party.

Will 2018 be the year marijuana takes over?

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

So far, all the states that have legalized marijuana have done so through grassroots petitions and ballot initiatives meant to bypass risk-averse lawmakers in state houses.

California, Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts, Alaska, Oregon, and the District of Columbia have all followed Colorado and Washington either to legalize the sale and use of recreational marijuana or, at a minimum, to decriminalize possession and consumption of small amounts of the drug.

But 2018 may be a tipping point — the moment when the momentum of pot makes it impossible for state lawmakers to avoid. State legislatures are poised to begin passing marijuana reform laws next year. The taboos against smoking dope may go up in a cloud of narcotic smoke.

Maine’s Governor Wants to Delay Retail Pot Sales Until 2019

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Maine residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana, but they’re still waiting for the law to take effect. Now, Maine’s governor wants to delay retail pot sales until 2019. He believes the current law is flawed and lawmakers haven’t been given enough time to grasp the details.

Why Wait on Retail Weed?

House Minority Leader Ken Fredette is sponsoring a new moratorium bill on behalf of Governor Paul LePage. Fredette believes that both the law that was passed and an upcoming bill that will be taken up next week need to be fixed. However, the adjustments that need to be made will take time.

“This option provides legislators with the opportunity to deal with this issue during the regular legislative session which starts in January, rather than having a straight up or down vote on the bill put forward by the committee,” Fredette said in a written statement.
