Dispatch from Pence-Land: Indiana Cops Lie About Super-Strong Edibles

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

America took a definite step backwards with the selection of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III as attorney general—as in a step back towards the 19th century—but for the movement to end marijuana prohibition in America, soon-to-be Vice President Mike Pence could be just as big of a problem. Just look at the nonsense they’re peddling in Pence’s home state of Indiana.

The Hoosier State has some of the toughest drug laws in America. Mere possession of the tiniest scrap of cannabis is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine; cultivating or possessing for sale more than 30 grams, just over an ounce, is a felony. 

As governor, America’s most-loathed theatergoer has spent more energy and political capital punishing gay people for being gay than cracking down any further on cannabis. There’s no need to bother, when he has local police forces concocting wild, Reefer Madness-worthy claims—like the out about the 5,000-milligram lollipop.

NFL player using marijuana for Crohn’s disease may press league over its drug policy

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

Seantrel Henderson, a third-year offensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills, is facing his second suspension of the season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse rules. But Henderson’s case is unusual because it raises fresh questions about the approach to pain management and changing attitudes about the legalization of marijuana.

What makes Henderson’s situation unique is that he uses marijuana, which is legal in many states but prohibited under the collective bargaining agreement in the NFL, to combat the pain from Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease that just this year has caused him to have two surgeries. In January, 2 1/2 feet of his colon were removed and in April he underwent surgery to reattach his intestines. In the interim, he wore an ileostomy bag and lost 50 pounds. He chose not to appeal the four-game suspension he received in September, his first of the season.

The rise of legal weed in America

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

A majority of the U.S. population now has access to legalized cannabis in some form. What's the track record so far? Here's everything you need to know:Where is weed legal?


Recreational use is now fully legal in eight states plus Washington, D.C., after voters in California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine approved marijuana ballot initiatives earlier this month. On Election Day, voters in Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota brought the tally of states with legal medical marijuana to 28. Though cannabis is still illegal under federal law, Election Day was widely considered a tipping point for the legalization movement. A recent Gallup poll found that 60 percent of Americans now approve of legalizing marijuana, and there is a growing bipartisan consensus that the $1 trillion war on drugs has failed. Criminalizing the use and sale of drugs has sent millions of nonviolent criminals to prison — a disproportionate number of them black — and empowered violent drug cartels. At the same time, there is growing scientific research showing that casual cannabis use by adults is fairly safe — less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco. Another major factor propelling legalization is that states can tax it and get a big boost in revenues. As one pro-legalization ad in Colorado put it: "Jobs for our people. Money for our schools. Who could ask for more?"

Professor Offers “Stoned Driving App” to Massachusetts Police

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Now that Massachusetts voters have legalized recreational marijuana, there’s still no simple way for law enforcement to test if someone is too stoned to drive.

“You have to prosecute the person based on the officer’s observations and what the officer found during the car stop,” William G. Brooks, president of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, told the Boston Globe. “It makes it very difficult.”

For that reason, University of Massachusetts psychology professor Michael Milburn is offering law enforcement an app that he funded and created to test for marijuana impairment.

Milburn calls his app DRUID, an acronym for “driving under the influence of drugs.” It is a tablet-based app in which users are asked to perform a series of tasks in five minutes.

A fine dining chef gave up a restaurant career for marijuana-plant-to-table cuisine

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

I Remember the first time I smoked OG Kush,” chef Holden Jagger says. “I thought it tasted like Mexican food.” 

The 32-year-old chef is prepping for a dinner party, perched over the stove browning pears in a cast iron pan slick with duck fat. It's a familiar task for Jagger, who spent six years — under the name Holden Burkons; he now uses his middle name, Jagger, as his last — working pastry stations under chef Tom Colicchio at Craft and Curtis Stone at Maude, as well as a long stint at Soho House, the members-only celebrity haunt on Sunset Boulevard. The smell of marijuana lingers in the kitchen, left over from cold-smoking shallots with a cannabis variety called In the Pines, which the chef cultivates in his garden partly for its strong notes of citrus, apple and, yes, pine.

The Man Singapore Executed for Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Chijioke Stephen Obioha, a Nigerian national in Singapore, was executed for marijuana possession Nov. 18, in defiance of international protest. As the final appeals for clemency were exhausted last week, Amnesty International issued an urgent statement calling on Singapore to halt the execution. “The death penalty is never the solution,” said Rafendi Djamin, Amnesty’s director for Southeast Asia. “It will not rid Singapore of drugs. By executing people for drug-related offenses, which do not meet the threshold of most serious crimes, Singapore is violating international law.”

Obioha was caught with some 2.6 kilograms of cannabis in April 2007—exceeding the 500-gram quantity that triggers automatic presumption of trafficking under Singaporean law. At this point, the burden of proof shifts from the prosecutor to the defendant. Amnesty says this violates the right to a fair trial. It also states that drug offenses do not meet the criteria the “most serious crimes” to which use of the death penalty must be restricted under international law.
