Colorado Lawmakers Reject Organic Marijuana Labeling

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

cannabis soilOrganic marijuana is becoming more and more popular. As I always say, the average cannabis consumer is becoming more knowledgeable and sophisticated every day, and knowing what one is consuming is becoming more important. For a long time knowing what was in a person’s cannabis wasn’t an option. You simply got what you got and hoped for the best. In legal states, those days are going away, if they haven’t already.

Now in legal states consumers can purchase marijuana that has been tested to know what exactly is in the cannabis. The testing also determines what is not in the marijuana, specifically pesticides and other undesirable substances. But testing only tells a user what levels are in the cannabis, and not how the cannabis was grown. More and more consumers specifically want organic marijuana, similar to how more and more people are only eating organic foods.

But just as with organic foods, labeling marijuana as being truly organic is not as easy as some would think. The State of Colorado was trying to become the first state to come up with standard organic labeling for marijuana, but lawmakers failed to pass such a measure over perception concerns. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

State Department Says NIDA Marijuana Monopoly Is a Scam

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Although the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has maintained that it is necessary to restrict the cultivation of research marijuana to a single grower in order to stay in compliance with international drug laws, a new federal report indicates that Uncle Sam’s leading drug warriors have been mistaken all along — the agency does, in fact, have the power to issue additional licenses without catching any heat from the United Nations.

In response to a recent inquiry by New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the U.S. Department of State says there is nothing legally standing in the way of the United States distributing additional licenses for the cultivation of marijuana for medicinal and scientific purposes.

The Vermont House was originally supposed to debate a marijuana legalization bill yesterday. However, that debate was delayed until today. The Vermont Senate already passed a marijuana legalization bill earlier this session, but the bill has hit snags in the House. The Senate version would create a marijuana retail industry in Vermont. The House appears to be unwilling to keep that provision, and instead is offering some compromises. Per WPTZ:

The bill had been on the House calendar for debate Monday, but lawmakers decided to delay action until Tuesday.

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

Federal prosecutors are finally dropping their attempt to seize property from the trailblazing Harborside Health Center in Oakland, California, the dispensary and a city official announced Tuesday.

The saga began in 2012, when former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag served Harborside with a lawsuit and civil forfeiture notices. Now, the epic dispute with the Department of Justice has finally come to an end. 

“As of today, Harborside Health Center is in the clear and will no longer have to worry about a looming raid,” a press release from Oakland City Councilmember At-Large Rebecca Kaplan said.

‘Sports Cannabis’ Shines At ArcView Event In Portland, Oregon

(Cliff Robinson does an interview for Fox at the ArcView Portland event)

I have been waiting for many weeks for today to get here, ever since I heard that there would be an ArcView Group event in Portland. I got especially excited when I heard that there would be a big sports cannabis presence at the event. ArcView has never put on an event in Oregon (my home state) and since they are the premier investment organization in the cannabis space, I think it’s safe to say that an event here is overdue. Oregon is home to the best cannabis community on the planet in my opinion, and I’ve traveled to quite a few places and consumed more than my fair share of cannabis.

If you read this blog frequently, then you know that I’m very excited about the sports cannabis movement. There has long been a perception that cannabis and an active lifestyle don’t mix, and that all cannabis consumers are lazy. That’s obviously not the case. Some of the most athletic humans in history have been avid cannabis consumers. And for every elite athlete, there’s a small army of amateur athletes like myself (using the term athlete loosely, although I’ll hoop you up, don’t sleep on me!). There are a lot of active people that consume cannabis for various reasons, and find that it enhances their active lifestyles.
