Now NFL Players Are Worried About Trump Jailing Them for Pot

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

NFL players suffer the strictest and most arbitrary restrictions on marijuana use seen in pro sports. In a league wracked and roiled by long-term health impacts like chronic pain and concussion-related dementia and other mental health issues—some of the very conditions for which cannabis is effective—the NFL’s drug policy continues to ruin players’ careers. Meanwhile, cannabis use is rampant throughout the league, and is being touted by more and more current and ex-players as the best tool to manage pro football’s significant health risks.

Just when all signs point towards an end to this bizarre and pointless exercise, here comes the federal government.

Instead of the league, NFL players are now afraid of the federal Justice Department, and the bellicose Trump administration throwing a few superstar athletes in prison—for pot—all to make a point.

Marijuana and Employment: What to do if Marijuana is Legal in your State

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana and Employment: In the last decade, the use of marijuana has changed dramatically across the country. What could at one point lead to jail time and judgement by your peers eventually proved itself to be useful for medical treatment, and in some states even approved for recreational use. Unfortunately, the use of marijuana can still have negative impacts on your life so it’s important to understand what rights you have at a state level, federal level, and with your place of employment.

The laws surrounding marijuana vary greatly depending on where you live. Close to 30 states have laws allowing use in some capacity, and 8 have passed laws to allow it for recreation. Where most people run into problems with these laws is when it comes to marijuana and employment. Many people have learned the hard way that even though your state is saying you can participate legally, your job may have a different view.

Lousy Federal Weed Production Holds Back Research

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

How can scientists study marijuana when their research weed is lousy?

It doesn’t have to be this way.

“We can’t get very far with the Mississippi weed. That’s just the reality,” said Nicholas Lovrich, professor emeritus at Washington State University and chair of its Cannabis Committee on Research and Outreach.

Lovrich is referring University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy’s “cannabis garden,” the only federally approved pot-growing facility in the country.

And even with all the resources that implies, they still haven’t figured out how to grow weed with enough potency and diversity needed by researchers.

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

Connecticut lawmakers will hear public feedback on the first of several bills filed this session that would legalize the sale of recreational marijuana.

 

The General Assembly's Public Health Committee has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday on legislation that would require the Department of Consumer Protection to create and administer a program that allows people 21 years and older to legally purchase and cultivate marijuana.

 

The bill also requires the Department of Revenue Services to create and administer a system for taxing the drug.

 

Republican Rep. Melissa Ziobron of East Haddam is co-sponsoring the bill. The ranking Republican House member on the Appropriations Committee, Ziobron says she wants to "promote a healthy and substantive discussion" of the issue.

JERUSALEM — Israel, which has been at the forefront of research into medical marijuana and the drug’s commercialization, took a major step on Sunday toward officially decriminalizing its recreational use.

At a time when many American states and European countries are loosening marijuana laws, the Israeli cabinet approved a plan that would impose fines rather than criminal penalties on those caught using the drug in public.

Growing and selling marijuana, which is widely used here recreationally and medicinally, would remain illegal.

Germany Expects Cannabis-Growing Program to Be Going in 2019

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

BERLIN (AP) — German authorities say they expect to have a cannabis-growing program up and running in 2019 after the country approved legislation allowing some patients to get the drug as a prescription medication.

Germany’s Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices said Friday that it’s setting up a “cannabis agency” to oversee the growing program. It plans to solicit bids from throughout the European Union to find companies to run it.

The program’s first cannabis is expected to be available in 2019. Until then, prescriptions will be fulfilled with imported marijuana, which currently comes from the Netherlands and Canada.
