Colorado Takes Aim at the Marijuana Black Market

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado, the first state to legalize recreational sale of marijuana, continues to provide lawmakers around the country with examples of what they should and should not do as they prepare to regulate medical and adult-use cannabis industry.

The latest involves allowing people to grow a large amount of marijuana in their homes, which Rocky Mountain State lawmakers have learned leads to a host of issues. Chief among them is the ability for organized crime to legally grow large amounts of marijuana, then divert it to the black market.

Fear and Avoidance: Tennessee Medical Marijuana Dies Because Lawmakers Are ‘Scared’

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Though the notion of giving sick people their choice of medicine is a winner in every poll and is at last taking hold in the South, there will be no medical marijuana in Tennessee this year. Why ever not?

The reason is simple, according to Tennessee state Rep. Jeremy Faison. It’s because his fellow lawmakers are scared.

Faison was sponsor of a bill that would have seen Tennessee lawmakers make a medical marijuana law themselves and not foist the difficult question onto voters, as nearly ever other state has done. Nothing wrong with direct democracy: Voter initiative was how medical marijuana first came to pass in California, and the voter initiative is also how adult-use marijuana legalization is coming about. However, making laws that reflect popular support is something elected lawmakers are supposed to do—you could even say it’s their core function.

These Are the Best—and the Worst—States for Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

On paper, medical marijuana is more common in America than firearms.

Forty-four states have medical cannabis laws on the books—which means that more than 300 million Americans can access legal marijuana in some form if they or a family member is sick. That’s 85 percent of the country.

Compare that to the owners of the country’s 300 million guns—which are stashed in only one-third of households—and it seems the U.S. should be in the running for mellowest place on earth, rather than the best-armed and most-incarcerated.

And since deaths related to opiate abuse are reduced by as much as 25 percent where medical-marijuana is available, America should also expect the heroin epidemic to be ending any day now.

Sounds great! But for now, this is all abstract theory.

Woody Harrelson quit; What happens to your body after a stoner quits smoking weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Ask an expert about the effects of marijuana withdrawal and the conversation quickly turns to the cognitive.

After all, marijuana is a hallucinogenic drug that alters the brain, how a person thinks and perceives the world, research shows. Experts then can identify with actor Woody Harrelson and his decision to quit marijuana a year ago because it kept him from "being emotionally available."

It's true. Real feelings are among the things that return to a person coming off years of marijuana use. But so does anxiety and the realization of the drug's consequences.

Town Votes to Reduce Weed Possession Charges to Less Than $1

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

The police chief in Monona, Wisconsin seems like a very chill guy.

“If the community values are, ‘Marijuana is not that serious of an offense’ and they want to have a $1 fine, or no fine, that’s their opinion,” Chief Walter Ostrenga said after the town council voted to scrap all weed possession charges.

Under the new ordinance, possessing marijuana in public or in private spaces is no longer subject to a fine, as long as the person is over 21.

Smoking weed in a private residence is also exempt, although toking in public is still subject to a $200 fine.

After a year and a half of discussion, the Monona City Council considered reducing weed possession fines of $200 to a mere $1.

But then they decided even a dollar was too much.

Reefer Madness Hits Nepal

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

The number of drug-related offenses is “higher than any other heinous crime in Nepal and is increasing at an alarming rate,” according a none-too-objective March 17 account in Kathmandu’s the Himalayan newspaper.

The article credulously regurgitates the claims of a new report from the country’s Narcotics Control Bureau, breaking down crime figures since 2011. The total for drug offenses rose to around 1,800, while those for murder and rape remain in the hundreds, and abduction in the two-digit range.

And what kinds of drugs are at issue here? We are luridly told that “cultivation of genetically selected strains have [sic] led to increase in cannabis harvests. As a result, cannabis cultivation is increasing even in the hilly areas, posing a grave threat to security, according to the report.”
