Georgia Linebacker Faces 4 Game Suspension for Less Than an Ounce of Weed

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

ATHENS, Ga. – A linebacker for the Georgia Bulldogs was arrested for marijuana possession Thursday evening. Natrez Patrick was arrested and booked for marijuana possession of less than one ounce at the Athens-Clarke County jail. The arrest comes just before a big Bulldogs vs. Vanderbilt game that Patrick was expected to start in.

Patrick posted bail less than an hour later on possession charges and a parking violation. The bail was set at $1500. The arrest was the second for the linebacker, who had also been arrested in 2015 along with ex-teammate Chauncey Rivers for pot. Rivers was kicked off the team after a few more arrests for marijuana possession. Another incident occurred last year when a RA in his dorm smelled marijuana and called the police. No arrests were made.

Patrick was suspended for the Bulldogs vs. Vanderbilt game Sunday and may be suspended for four more games, according to the Georgia Athletic Association code of policies. When Georgia Athletics was contacted by the press for a comment, no one could be reached. The code of conduct states that:

Why California’s Legal Weed May Cost More

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

Despite the many stories about the recent drop in weed prices, some in the industry fear that cultivation, production and retail regulations could drive up weed prices in California—just when consumers can finally buy it legally.

Jonathan Rubin of New Leaf Data Services thinks prices will go up because of compliance costs and testing.

“I can almost guarantee bottlenecks in testing and permits,” Rubin told LA Weekly.

No doubt California is going to stick to the letter of the law.

California pot czar Lori Ajax, who called the state’s entire regulatory scheme a work in progress, said it may take months for enough testing labs to be properly screened and licensed to handle the supply of weed expected to be sold starting in January.

75 Percent of Indoor Pot Plants Come From California

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

It has been reported that California grows more weed than it knows what to do with. Now, we’re realizing that the wild, wondrous and illegal weed that once bloomed in the California’s many national forests and other outdoor locations is being cultivated indoors under LED lights with all sorts of other technologies.

And, they’re getting busted like crazy.

Federal statistics showed that in 2016, authorities seized 313,000 plants from indoor operations in California, which made up 75 percent of all indoor plants nabbed nationwide, according to the DEA.

So, not only is California growing more weed than it can use, it’s growing most of the rest of the country’s illegal weed. Maybe we already knew that, too.

Although the total accounts for only eight percent of all seizures in California, it’s the highest total in at least the past eight years.

Retail marijuana is spreading to California, Massachusetts and Maine

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

Recreational marijuana sales will launch in three states next year, including the biggest one of all: California.

It's already for sale in five states, but the addition of a legal retail marijuana market in California, with its massive economy and population, will dramatically change the landscape.

California is aiming to open retail marijuana stores by January 1, Massachusetts and Maine plan to open stores next summer.

"We obviously still have a lot to do, but yes, we're going to be ready to go on January 1," said Alex Traverso, spokesman for the Bureau of Cannabis Control in California. "We will be issuing new regulations in November, so we're hard at work on those at the present time."

New York’s Medical Marijuana Program Is Crumbling

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

New York’s medical marijuana program is on the verge of total collapse because, according to a recent report from USA Today’s LoHud, the system has been designed to fail.

It will soon be two years since the state implemented its medical marijuana law, giving certain patients the ability to access cannabis products with the permission of a licensed physician.

But the program, which struggled for the first year to service even 1,000 patients, continues to face challenges, including a lack of interest from the medical community, as well as legal restrictions that have prevented enough participation to keep the program alive.

When the Compassionate Use Act was put into place, the state licensed five companies to oversee the production and distribution of medical marijuana. Yet, the state only gave these operations permission to sell specific, pharmaceutical-like products, which are expensive to manufacture and therefore costly for the consumer.
