DEA Under Fire for Wasting Money and Being Incompetent

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

The DEA’s failed War on Drugs is among numerous reasons why the inefficient, money-wasting, disoriented organization should cease to exist and stop wasting our tax dollars.

A recent round of criticism prompted some lawmakers to complain that the agency’s weed eradication program is squandering millions of dollars in states where pot is legal.

Adding ignorance and corruption to the DEA’s list of dubious qualities, let us not forget the former DEA chief who stepped down after a huge sex scandal. She was then followed by acting DEA chief Chuck Rosenberg who embarrassed himself and everyone listening when he told reporters that marijuana was “probably not” as dangerous as heroin, adding, “I’m not an expert,” then proceeded to call medical marijuana “a joke.”

Missourians Should Not Support the New Medical Cannabis Law Submitted in Missouri

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

Anything that Eapen Thampy is behind should make people extremely skeptical and we would encourage you not to support it. Eapen has admitted to stealing the contact list from Show-Me Cannabis to raise money for himself:

Additionally, he is constantly trying to divide Missouri activists. We suggest looking at New Approach Missouri and supporting their efforts as they are backed by the majority of Missouri activists.

United Nations Appoints Leader Known for Decriminalizing Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

With the American election still dominating headlines, it was easy to miss the appointment of António Guterres as the top man at the United Nations. Guterres was sworn in as the Secretary-General on Jan 1.

While the power of the U.N. Secretary-General is indeed limited, this one is very much worth watching.

Guterres is the former prime minister of Portugal, a country famous among activists for decriminalizing personal use of all drugs—yes, all of them, including coke, heroin and meth—instead, focusing on harm reduction and addiction recovery as an alternative to criminalizing a public health issue. Guterres was instrumental in getting this change passed, and the results have been spectacular.

As of July 2001, possession of up to a 10-day supply of any illegal drug changed from a criminal offense to an administrative one. Which means that if caught by cops, users will not be arrested, although their stash will be confiscated, and they will be issued a summons to be interviewed by a Commission for the Dissuasion of Drug Addiction (Comissões para a Dissuasão da Toxicodependência), comprising of a psychiatrist, a lawyer and a social worker. The commission can levy fines, restrict or ban some forms of travel and revoke licenses for some professions like doctors or professional drivers, but their main goal is to get addicts and users into rehab programs.

Marijuana is legal in California. Now politicians and pot pushers need to help keep it out of kids' hands

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Happy New Year and pass the pot. But now that weed is legal for adults in California, we need somehow to keep more teens from toking.

Regular use can stunt their mental growth.

There’s plenty of research that shows youthful brain impairment caused by continual marijuana intake.

Buy These Sandwich Bags for $325—Free Marijuana Included!

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

2017 was always going to be a weird year for the states that legalized marijuana on Election Day in November. Cannabis is now legal for adults 21 and over in Massachusetts, California and Nevada—and on Jan. 30, Maine—but only if you can find any lying around. 

Retail sales in licensed stores won’t start until 2018, and unlicensed sales of any kind are illegal then and now. 

That means that the only way to actually legally acquire any cannabis for now is to grow some yourself, receive some for free or otherwise stumble upon some unattended reefer. That, or buy some off the street or from your “guy” (or girl) just like before. 

One enterprising man in Massachusetts has stumbled upon another option—and one that might be even more relevant, now that state lawmakers have abandoned their early-2018 deadline to set up retail sales and pushed it back to at least the middle of next year.

Judge Rules Insurance Company Must Pay for Injured Worker’s Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

In what could become a precedent-setting decision, New Jersey Judge Ingrid French ordered an insurance company to pay for medical marijuana for an injured worker who suffers from lingering neuropathic pain after an accident involving a power saw at an 84 Lumber outlet in 2008.

The worker, 39-year-old Andrew Watson, was seeking reimbursement for MMJ he’d bought in 2014 after enrolling in the New Jersey’s medical marijuana program. He also sought to be covered for the treatment in the future.

French found that Watson’s intractable neuropathic pain fell under New Jersey’s list of qualifying conditions.

The judge took into account testimony from a psychiatrist/neurologist who said medical marijuana was an appropriate treatment for Watson to reduce prescription opiates to treat his complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), an uncommon form of chronic pain.
