Toledo Decriminalization Law Gives “No Fines, No Jail Time” for Felony Pot Offenses

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

While Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine attempts to sabotage a measure completely decriminalizing marijuana possession in the city of Toledo, local prosecutors appear to be doing their best to maintain the integrity of the ordinance.

A recent report from the Toledo Blade suggests that ever since voters approved a measure last September that eliminates the criminal penalties associated with misdemeanor and felony pot possession, only one person has been convicted of the offense—an 18-year-old woman by the name of Mariah Smith, who received a sentence of “no fines and no jail time.” 

A total of 21 defendants have been arrested for marijuana possession since the ordinance went into effect last year. All, with the exception of Smith, are currently awaiting trial, or for their charges to be reduced to disorderly conduct, according to the report.

Oregon's new list of pesticides OK for marijuana means changes for some growers

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Oregon on Monday issued a list of more than 250 pesticides cannabis growers may be able to use on their crops.

The list represents the first clear guidance from Oregon agriculture officials on what chemicals the state's marijuana industry may use to defeat mites, mold, mildew and other common pests and problems. Top state agriculture officials made clear that the list is a "starting spot" for marijuana growers, who still have to follow pesticide labels.

Lauren Henderson, assistant director of the agency, said regulators combed through more than 12,000 pesticides registered with the state to see which had labels broad enough to include cannabis. Ultimately, the agency came up with about 250 products. The list will be reviewed quarterly, said Henderson.

State senators in Colorado to study marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

DENVER — Eight state senators are flying into Colorado this week for a primer on life in a state that has already legalized marijuana, in case Massachusetts voters follow suit this November and lawmakers have to decide quickly how to respond.

They’re poised to see a cultivation facility, tour a marijuana dispensary, and pepper top state, municipal, and law-enforcement officials with questions about the implementation of the voter-approved law. The four-day trip is being arranged and paid for by the New York-based Milbank Memorial Fund, which describes itself as a nonpartisan health policy foundation.

This Invention Could Address a Serious Marijuana Concern

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

As we barrel headlong into 2016, one issue that promises to take center stage, especially with elections just 10 months away, is marijuana.

Marijuana expands, but roadblocks remain
Over the previous two decades marijuana has been practically unstoppable. With the exception of a few notable defeats -- the defeat two months ago of Issue 3 in Ohio, which attempted to approve medical and recreational marijuana at the same time, and Florida's medical marijuana defeat in 2014 -- marijuana's expansion continues.

In two decades, 23 states have approved the use of marijuana for select medical ailments, and since 2012 four states (along with Washington, D.C.) now allow for the sale of marijuana to adults for recreational use. Medical marijuana opens new treatment avenues for select patients dealing with chronic or terminal illnesses, while for states the retail sale of marijuana provides another source of revenue that can help fill relatively small budget gaps.

Manhattan's First Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens And Is Already Working With Mt. Sinai Hospital

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Nicholas Vita and Michael Abbott aren’t just opening New York City’s first medical marijuana dispensary, they are trying to steer the industry to a more data-focused way of matching patients with the strains of medical marijuana to help their specific conditions.

Located near Union Square in New York City, Columbia Care is collaborating with its famous neighbor, Mount Sinai Hospital, analyzing de-identified patient registry data that Columbia Care has collected from more than 100,000 interactions with patients in the states where it operates.   While the first step is a retrospective analysis of this data, in time they hope to work together on clinical studies.

DNC Chair Accepts Huge Donations from Alcohol PACs, Claims Pot Is a Gateway Drug

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, U.S. Representative for Florida and head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said she opposed legalization of marijuana and called it a gateway drug.

“I don’t oppose the use of medical marijuana," she said. "I just don’t think we should legalize more mind-altering substances if we want to make it less likely that people travel down the path toward using drugs. We have had a resurgence of drug use instead of a decline. There is a huge heroin epidemic.”

Considering that there is a known correlation (one acknowledged by the U.S. government) between heroin addiction and the over-prescription of opiate painkillers, such as Oxycontin, it seems odd that Schultz is resorting to false equivalencies by equating opiates and pot.
