Nevada Regulators Ponder On-Again, Off-Again Pot Licensing

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s marijuana regulators are gathering in Carson City again to try to finally resolve a turf battle over distribution licenses that has tied up deliveries and slowed the sale of some pot products since recreational sales began July 1.

The state Tax Commission scheduled a hearing Tuesday on an administrative appeal by a group of alcohol wholesalers who argue their industry has exclusive rights to distribute marijuana from growers to storefronts until next year under the ballot measure voters approved last November.

A judge refused earlier this month to extend an injunction prohibiting any distribution licensees for non-liquor businesses, partly because he said they hadn’t exhausted the administrative appeal process.

Why Marijuana Compounds Could Eventually Replace Anti-Anxiety Meds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

Research into the potential medical uses of marijuana compounds continues apace. Among the most recent, a study delved into why marijuana is an effective stress reducer. While not conclusive on their own, the results contribute to a longer-term possibility – that marijuana compounds may turn out to be more effective and safer in alleviating anxiety than prescription anxiety meds.

The recent study focused on marijuana’s potency in reducing the stress response in regular users. Stress was measured by tracking cortisol amounts in study participants’ saliva. Cortisol, the “stress hormone,” is a reliable indicator of stress; higher or lower amounts correlate closely with a person’s response to stressful situations.

Indiana Republicans Warming Up to Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

It has been said that Indiana’s Republican-dominated legislature is mostly to blame for refusing to consider measures calling for statewide marijuana reform. Yet, there is now some evidence to suggest that the party’s “hell no” attitude toward the legalization of marijuana may be starting to relax to some degree, a potential shift in opinion that could put the state on the path to establishing a comprehensive medical marijuana program in 2018.

It was recently revealed that Republican Representative Jim Lucas is planning to introduce a piece of legislation in the upcoming session designed to put a fully functional medical marijuana law on the books.

Lucas—who has not exactly been a fan–favorite within the liberal community since posting derogatory comments to a social media page about women “learning how not to be” rape victims—is apparently drafting a measure that will give Indiana patients with a wide range of health conditions access to full strength cannabis medicine.

How Anti-Mafia RICO Laws Could Cause Serious Problems for Legal Weed

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

Earlier this summer, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Colorado decided that “noxious odors” from a pot farm could be lowering property values and creating a nuisance and that the farm’s neighbor could sue them.

The decision came after a civil suit was filed by the pot farm’s neighbors, under a federal racketeering law, known as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, which is normally used in organized crime cases, embezzlement, racketeering, etc.—not for your local pot warehouse vs. the next-door neighbor dispute.

Having said that, this case could set a nasty precedent by creating a situation in which private citizens can go around state law and utilize federal law, like RICO, under the protection that weed is still federally illegal.

Rolling Stone found everything about this case to be important—from the aforementioned implications to the mysterious organization behind it.

U.S. Border Patrol in Maine warns legalization won’t halt marijuana seizures

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

BANGOR — The top U.S. Border Patrol agent in Maine cautioned residents Monday that officers will still confiscate marijuana when they encounter it and that even family connections to the cannabis industry can disqualify someone from federal employment.

Chief Daniel Hiebert, who heads the Houlton sector of the Border Patrol, said Maine voters’ legalization of recreational marijuana last November and the state’s well-established medical marijuana program do not change his agents’ obligation to follow federal law.

Native American Tribes Consider Entering Marijuana Market

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Native American tribes want to begin growing and selling marijuana. They hope it will help end poverty on reservations, the large areas where many Native Americans live. However, there is uncertainty about the future of US marijuana policy.

Cannabis is the plant that produces marijuana. The growth and sale of marijuana in some states has become a big business. Arcview is a cannabis investor network in California. It says the U.S. marijuana market earned $6.7 billion in 2016.

Supporters of cannabis say it has many uses. The male cannabis plant can be used to make hemp, which is used around the world in more than 25,000 products. These include food, fabric and medicine.
