Category: News | Posted on Wed, July, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

WAGNER, S.D. (AP) — A Yankton Sioux Tribe official says a general council meeting to discuss legalizing marijuana for recreational and other uses has been postponed.

Councilwoman Roseanne Wade says she isn’t aware of a new date for the tribal-members only meeting that had been scheduled for Friday at the Fort Randall Casino Bingo Hall. Wade referred a request for additional details to tribal Chairman Robert Flying Hawk, who hasn’t answered repeated telephone calls from The Associated Press.

A notice for the meeting said the agenda would include all legal aspects of the business of “legal marijuana/hemp manufacturing, distribution and usage laws…”

New State Law Might Make It Tougher to Spot Pot Shops

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

A new Washington State law that went into effect on Sunday will make it a bit more difficult to spot Seattle’s numerous pot shops and a lot more boring for those who have enjoyed the city’s creative cannabis ads and billboards.

There will be no more cuddly mascots or meowing kitties.

“No sandwich boards, no flags, no sign spinners—the things people are putting value judgments on that they find unappealing or gross,” said Oscar Velasco-Schmitz, co-owner of Dockside Cannabis.

Signs have to indicate that cannabis is only for adults over 21 and will not be allowed to show pictures of pot plants, products or use movie or cartoon characters.

The first cannabis billboards went up in Seattle in summer 2014, and they were clever.

Jeff Sessions’ Secret Weapon Against Weed

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Most of us in the medical cannabis industry take for granted the protections against prosecution afforded by the 2004 Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment to the Federal Budget to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. These legal protections have been both wise and valuable, but presume an honest Attorney General will abide by both the intent, as well as the letter of the law.

One possible clue as to AG Sessions’ intent regarding medical cannabis was revealed in a letter he wrote on May 1 to the leaders of both chambers of Congress. In it, he requested that the protections offered under Rohrabacher-Farr come to an end. Fortunately, for the cannabis industry, Congress has since ignored his request.

Pot Shop Gave Out Free Weed to Help Clean Up Maine Town

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Who doesn’t love a town cleanup… especially when the local pot shop is handing out free weed in exchange for filling a few trash bags?

Dennis Meehan and his wife Tracy, both medical marijuana caregivers and owners of the Summit Medical Marijuana Shop in Gardiner, Maine, made the offer this past weekend, and the response was awesome.

“The night before, I was up all night putting together the bags. We had people, not just from Gardiner, but from all over the state,” Meehan said in a phone interview with HIGH TIMES. “It was incredible.”

Meehan had announced the cleanup on the company’s Facebook page, in which he promised up to two grams of free weed for filling trash bags with garbage collected around the city.

Trump's DOJ gears up for crackdown on marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

The Trump administration is readying for a crackdown on marijuana users under Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

President Trump’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, led by Sessions, is expected to release a report next week that criminal justice reform advocates fear will link marijuana to violent crime and recommend tougher sentences for those caught growing, selling and smoking the plant.  

Sessions sent a memo in April updating the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and Department of Justice Department (DOJ) component heads on the work of the task force, which he said would be accomplished through various subcommittees. In the memo, Sessions said he has asked for initial recommendations no later than July 27.
