DEA tells Elizabeth Warren decision on reclassifying marijuana could come by July

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Agency says ruling could be made by July as timetable is the latest development in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s challenge to federal marijuana laws

The Drug Enforcement Administration said it could decide whether marijuana should remain classified at the same level as LSD and heroin in “the first half of 2016”.

The agency slipped this news into a letter to the Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, who with seven other senators, had asked for more information on marijuana’s scheduling and about limits on medical marijuana research. The 25-page letter was obtained by Matt Ferner at the Huffington Post.

DEA Letter Reveals Marijuana's Schedule I Could Be Downgraded in 2016

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

While the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has spent decades spewing the swill of prohibitionists in an effort to keep the cannabis plant confined to its Schedule I classification under the Controlled Substances Act, documents obtained by the Huffington Post indicate that the agency may finally be prepared to reschedule the herb. 

In response to a letter submitted last year by Senator Elizabeth Warren and seven other lawmakers calling for the federal government to unleash some of the restrictions that continue to make it difficult to study the medicinal benefits of the cannabis plant, the DEA has revealed that it will make a decision on whether to reschedule marijuana before the end of summer 2016.

Marijuana Legalization Initiative Backers To Issue Challenge To Bill Montgomery

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

regulate marijuana like alcohol arizona 2016Backers of a proposed ballot initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Arizona will issue a challenge Wednesday to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol is calling on Montgomery — who says marijuana is too dangerous to regulate for adult use — to either prove marijuana is more harmful than alcohol or return campaign contributions he received from members of the alcohol industry last year.

The CRMLA will hold a news conference TODAY at 12 p.m. MST in front of the Maricopa County Administration Building (301 W. Jefferson St.), where the county attorney’s office is located. They will provide him with a jumbo-sized refund check for $8,050 from his campaign committee, Montgomery 2016, to his “alcohol industry contributors.” Montgomery 2016 received at least $8,050 in contributions from members of the alcohol industry in 2015, according to campaign finance reports.

“Mr. Montgomery’s public statements about our initiative indicate that he feels like marijuana should remain illegal because of its potential harms,” said CRMLA chairman J.P. Holyoak. “Yet marijuana is far less harmful than alcohol by every objective measure, and he accepts campaign contributions from people who distribute alcohol.”

D.C. Council Votes To Permanently Ban Social Marijuana Consumption Outside Of Residences

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana washington state felony drug possessionThe D.C. Council today again reversed its position on a law banning the consumption of marijuana anywhere outside a private home, even though it is legal for adults to use and possess up to two ounces of marijuana in the District. By voting 7-6 today in favor of B21-107, which would make the “social use ban” permanent, the council ignored its own prior decision to make the ban temporary and set up a task force to study the issue.

The task force, which the council voted to create on February 2, was intended to study how D.C. could move forward to end the ban and allow marijuana consumption in private venues. Although that bill will not officially become law until April 29, following congressional review, steps have already been taken by the mayor and the council to set up the task force.

This is the second unusual reversal by the council. Earlier this year, the council voted to let the ban expire but then reopened the vote and reversed itself after receiving pressure from the mayor. There will be one more vote on the social consumption ban before it is finalized.

Statement from Kate M. Bell, legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project, who has lobbied on this issue since the initial hearing on the ban:

Scientists Successfully Breed Kale with Cannabis

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

A Brooklyn-based lab has successfully bred the world’s first Kale x Cannabis hybrid. The company, Williamsburg Wonders, announced today that the new cross, called Kaleabis, would be available as a superfood juice shot in Oregon dispensaries this summer.

The successful cross is the culmination of a two-year project that began with a Kickstarter campaign by Williamsburg Wonders’ founders, Mark and Todd Takota. When the Takota brothers announced their desire to breed a plant with the dietary benefits of kale and the therapeutic properties of cannabis, funding poured in. The project reached its investment goal in less than a week, significantly outpacing other local investment opportunities like DIY mustache wax and kombucha colonics

Georgia: Leaked Emails Show Governor Never Intends to Expand Medical Marijuana Law

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

Even while the majority of Georgia residents stood in favor of legislation to establish a cultivation and distribution system that would prevent the state’s registered medical marijuana patients from engaging in drug trafficking, a new report shows that Governor Nathan Deal had doomed the concept of growing weed on Georgia soil long before the bill ever had a chance to be slaughtered in the state legislature.

An internal email trail between Governor Deal’s office and Representative Allen Peake, the lawmaker responsible for introducing the cultivation proposal, reveals that ever since Georgia officials got back from a Colorado fact-finding mission in November 2015, the fix has been in to ensure a medical marijuana expansion plan never sees the light of day.
