Shatter, a super-high-potency marijuana, is appearing on the East Coast

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

As marijuana extracts expand their presence on the East Coast, an especially potent concentrate is appearing on law enforcement radar.

Shatter, a cannabis extract with about 80 percent THC content, is legal for recreational use in states such as Colorado and Washington, sold in medical marijuana dispensaries in other states and is faster-acting and far more easily concealed than marijuana.

On Monday, Loudoun County sheriff’s deputies intercepted a truck that had about $900,000 worth of packaged marijuana near Dulles International Airport. Included in that load was 15 pounds of shatter, in total packaged weight. Shatter, which is sold by the gram because of its potency, retails for about $60 a gram in Colorado, so 10 pounds of shatter would be worth nearly $270,000 — in a state where it is legal. Black-market shatter probably would cost much more.

Kansas Couple Whose Tea Was Mistaken for Marijuana Loses Lawsuit

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

Last week, a federal judge in Kansas ruled against a couple whose home was raided in 2012 in an unsuccessful "SWAT-style" search for marijuana. 

According to Reason.com, U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum said that police acted "legally and reasonably in planning and conducting the fruitless raid on the home of Robert and Adlynn Harte, former CIA agents whose children were 7 and 13 at the time."

The family was held at gunpoint for over two hours while Johnson County sheriff's deputies ransacked their house, finding nothing and refusing to say why they thought the Hartes were growing marijuana. 

The couple reportedly spent a year and $25,000 in legal fees to find out what "probable cause" police had to support a search warrant.

Radical Rant: Legalization Will Change Medical Marijuana Programs

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Dear Medical Marijuana States

I’m writing today to inform you that if you have a medical marijuana program and are thinking about legalizing marijuana use by all adults, that legalization will affect your medical marijuana program.

But that’s not a reason to oppose marijuana legalization.

Here on the West Coast, we’ve had medical marijuana since the late 1990's. As the first medical marijuana states, we also enjoyed the greatest leeway in terms of protection from enforcement of the controlled substance laws.

We tried to keep medical marijuana untouched by legalization. The campaign for Washington’s Initiative 502 repeatedly claimed their language did not change medical marijuana laws. Oregon’s Measure 91 said specifically, three times, that their language was not to affect medical marijuana. Neither initiative contained any language modifying medical marijuana in any way.

Those were not lies or false promises.

Yup, Mailing Pot Ads Is Still Illegal

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The U.S. Postal Service says it's illegal to mail materials containing advertising for marijuana products, even in states that have legalized the federally controlled substance.

The policy statement released this week comes in response to a letter from Oregon's Congressional delegation asking the service to clarify its policy on the issue.

In November, a memo distributed in the Portland postal district said it was unlawful for newspaper outlets to run marijuana ads and use the U.S. mail for delivery.

The memo caused confusion among publishers whose newspapers have published ads for dispensaries and manufacturers in the region.

"Advertisements for the sale of marijuana are non-mailable," Thomas Marshall, executive vice president and general counsel of the Postal Service, wrote in a letter to the delegation. That's because under the federal Controlled Substances Act marijuana's sale is prohibited, he said. That same law also prohibits placing written ads for controlled substances like marijuana in newspapers, magazines or other publications.

"These provisions express Congress's judgment that the mail should not be used as a means of transmitting advertisements for the sale of marijuana, even if that sale is allowed under state law," Marshall wrote.

Native American Tribes Approve Plan to Grow and Sell Marijuana in Oregon

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Ore. — Members of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs have approved a plan to build a facility to grow marijuana on their reservation in central Oregon and to sell it at tribe-owned stores outside the reservation.

The tribes are among the first in the country to enter the marijuana-growing business, a year after a Department of Justice policy indicated tribes could grow and sell marijuana under the same guidelines as states that opt to legalize.

Tribal officials said more than 80 percent of tribal voters favored the proposal in the referendum, which was held Thursday.

Warm Springs’s plan is to build a 36,000-square-foot greenhouse to grow and process the cannabis. Officials expect the project will create more than 80 jobs. Annual net revenue from the three proposed tribe-owned retail shops would top $26 million, the officials estimated.

The tribes say they will enter into an agreement with state agencies to ensure that testing and other regulations are consistent with state law. Sales are set to start in winter 2016.

California’s Legalization Movement Gets Generous Donation

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

Sean Parker, creator of Napster and early investor in Facebook, is giving the California Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) an early Christmas present.

The generous tech billionaire and philanthropist recently announced he will match all donations to MPP, dollar-for-dollar, up to any amount, reported SFGate.

“We’re very excited about the generosity he’s shown,” Mason Tvert, MPP Communications Director, said. “This is someone who wants to see marijuana prohibition end and helped bring a lot of folks together, and now he’s putting his money where his mouth is.”

This is the latest in a series of Parker’s philanthropic acts, which include donations to cancer, diabetes and auto-immune research.

Parker, viewed as the driving force behind California’s Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), is part of a new generation of wealthy activists supporting such issues as ending mass incarceration and supporting drug reform, said Amanda Reiman, Marijuana Law and Policy Manager at Drug Policy Alliance.
