New DEA rule on extracts, CBD causes commotion in cannabis industry

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

A little three-page document published this week in the U.S. Federal Register sent some fairly big shock waves through the cannabis industry.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration filed a final rule notice to establish a Controlled Substances Code Number for “marihuana extract,” and subsequently maintaining marijuana, hemp and their derivatives as Schedule I substances. According to the notice:

This code number will allow DEA and DEA-registered entities to track quantities of this material separately from quantities of marihuana. This, in turn, will aid in complying with relevant treaty provisions.

The filing published Wednesday goes on to state that a new code number is needed because the United Nations Conventions on international drug control treats cannabis plant extracts differently than marijuana or tetrahydrocannabinols (THC). The rule is expected to take effect Jan. 13, 2017.

Recreational Pot Delivery Is Coming to Portland

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Considering that medical marijuana patients in Portland can have pot delivered to their doors, shouldn’t recreational users be given the same privilege?

Portland’s City Council thinks that sounds fine. It recently added a license for delivery-only cannabis businesses to a marijuana regulation plan to come up for a vote next week.

The so-called “marijuana retail couriers” would not be allowed to sell from storefronts. Already existing weed shops will also be able to deliver recreational pot under rules detailed by the state.

Adrian Wayman, co-founder of Green Box, a start-up online weed delivery service, told HIGH TIMES that there’s definitely a market for delivery of recreational pot products. He thinks the “chances are good that the City Council will approve it.”

Marijuana Research In Colorado: Health Department Grants $2.35M For Studies On Drug's Impact On Driving

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Colorado’s Health Department announced Tuesday the state will provide $2.35 million for research on the effects of marijuana, with most of the money aiding in two studies analyzing the impact marijuana has on driving, Denver Post reported.

Research that compares driving impairment between heavy marijuana users and occasional consumers and a second study reviewing the effects dabbing — a method of marijuana consumption that involves highly potent cannabis extracts —  has on driving and cognitive function are to receive $1.68 million in funding.

“This research will be invaluable in Colorado and across the country,” said Dr. Larry Wolk, executive director of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. “The findings will inform our public education efforts and give people additional information they need to make decisions about marijuana use.”

Canadian Prime Minister Recommends Minimum Age of 18 to Buy Legal Pot

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Now that Canada has gotten the green light to sell recreational weed in a range of retail outlets, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has recommended that the minimum age to partake should be set at 18 or 19.

“I think the proposal for the age of 18, or 19 in some provinces, to align with the [legal drinking age] across the country, is a reasonable compromise,” Trudeau said at a news conference on Thursday. “We know the largest misdeeds of marijuana use happens at a lower age than 18, 19 years of age, and I think this is a responsible approach that we have found in terms of balance that is both practical and useful.”

In most of Canada’s 10 provinces, the legal drinking age is 19; in Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta, the age limit is 18.

Kentucky Will Discuss Recreational Pot in 2017

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Kentucky will soon discuss how it could become the first state in the Midwest to legalize marijuana in a manner that allows a variety of cannabis products to be purchased similar to beer.

Democratic Senator Perry Clark marched up to steps of the State Capitol in Frankfort last week and pre-filed a piece of legislation aimed at establishing a taxed and regulated cannabis market throughout the Commonwealth.

The proposal, which was submitted under BR408, steals a chapter from a number of successful recreational markets across the nation by pushing for adults 21 and over to have the freedom to carry up to one ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to five plants at home for personal consumption.

This legislation would steer Kentucky into the ranks of the eight states, spanning California to Maine, that have made marijuana fully legal in an effort to prevent senseless incarcerations and breathe new life into communities suffering from economic stagnation.

With Marijuana Legal But Nowhere to Buy It, Massachusetts Enters the Weird Zone

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

On Thursday, marijuana possession and cultivation officially becomes legal for all adults 21 and older in Massachusetts, one of the four states to approve legalization on Election Day last month.

Exciting! As will be the experience for anyone trying to actually find any cannabis—which, just like before Bay State voters thought they were ending the drug war, will almost certainly require committing some kind of crime.

Massachusetts marijuana-seekers are entering what the Boston Globe calls a “gray area.” Marijuana is legal to possess, consume and grow. But it’s illegal to buy or sell—and it’s illegal for any medical-marijuana patient, the only people by whom cannabis can be legally purchased in the state, to share their stash.
