BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Legal sales of marijuana for recreational purposes are set to begin next week in Uruguay at a limited number of pharmacies to nearly 5,000 people who have registered as consumers.

The South American nation’s Cannabis Regulation and Control Institute said Friday in a statement that pot will be available starting July 19 in 5-gram amounts at 16 pharmacies across the country.

The packaging comes with a security stamp that guarantees authenticity and warnings about the effects of consumption.

In New Challenge to Madrid, Catalonia Legalizes Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Spain’s restive northeastern region of Catalonia and especially its freewheeling capital Barcelona have, over the past years, come to rival the Netherlands and and Amsterdam as a European cannabis hub. Smokers’ clubs have proliferated, tolerated (and regulated) by the authorities.

Now the regional government, the Generalitat de Catalunya, has passed a measure formally legalizing these cannabis clubs.

Members of registered Cannabis Social Clubs will now be free to cultivate, distribute and consume the herb. Under the law passed by the regional parliament, clubs will be permitted to grow enough to supply their members—60 grams per month for adults 21 and over, and 20 grams per month for those between 18 and 21. 

The Cannabis Associations Law (Ley de Asociaciones Cánnabicas) was passed following a long activist campaign

Nevada Regulators Mull Expedited Marijuana Supply Licensing

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Following an overwhelming demand for recreational marijuana, Nevada regulators are set to vote Thursday on emergency rules that would expedite licensing for pot distributors.

Dozens of retailers started selling recreational marijuana on July 1 but a unique state law could quickly lead to empty shelves. The law dictates only alcohol wholesalers can transport pot from growers to store fronts for the next 18 months.

So far, fewer than 10 alcohol wholesalers have applied for pot distribution licenses and as of last week none had met the qualifications, the Nevada Department of Taxation said.

Most recreational retailers were previously licensed under a 2-year-old medical marijuana program and many were distributing to themselves. The medical marijuana dispensaries started stockpiling supplies months ago in an anticipation of high demand.

New coffee pods promise a two-way buzz: From marijuana and caffeine

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Want your morning coffee to come with a little extra buzz? Brewbudz just might do the trick. A company called Cannabiniers on Wednesday launched the Brewbudz, which is “the world’s first cannabis infused coffee, tea and cocoa pods.”

The pods are compatible with all Keurig and Keurig 2.0 brewers, making your morning wake and bake as simple as pushing a button.

Brewbudz are available in different dosing strengths from 10 mg to 50 mg of THC, the compound in marijuana that gets you high, in both sativa (the strain of cannabis that picks you up) or indica (the strain that mellows you out). The company’s patented extraction process “allows the consumer to benefit from the complete profile of the cannabis flower, in a healthy and discreet manner,” according to a news release. The coffee is responsibly sourced Arabica and also available in decaf; the tea is black, green and herbal; and the cocoa is dark chocolate.

Jeff Sessions Seeks to Revive D.A.R.E.

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 14th 2017 by THCFinder

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is pushing to reinstate the nearly defunct D.A.R.E. program, which has been criticized, ridiculed and generally pronounced ineffective.

“D.A.R.E. is, I think, as I indicated, the best remembered anti-drug program today,” Sessions recently told the gathering at D.A.R.E.’s International Training Conference in Grapevine, Texas.

And when Jeff Session says he thinks he remembers something, that’s progress so I guess we should listen.

“In recent years, people have not paid much attention to that message, but they are ready to hear it again,” said Sessions.

They are?

Massachusetts: Lawmakers to Restart Talks on Compromise Marijuana Bill

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — Lawmakers are restarting negotiations over legislation that would overhaul the state’s voter-approved marijuana law.

A House-Senate conference committee has scheduled a closed-door meeting for Monday afternoon, according to the office of Democratic Sen. Patricia Jehlen (JAY’-len). The Somerville Democrat is the lead Senate negotiator on the six-member panel.

The meeting will be the first since House Speaker Robert DeLeo suspended talks earlier this month, saying he wanted the Legislature to focus on passing an overdue budget for the fiscal year starting July 1.

Lawmakers sent a $40.2 billion spending plan to Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s desk on Friday.
