Flourishing marijuana trade is leaving Denver short on warehouse space

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

Here's an amusing byproduct of the legalization of marijuana use in some American states: it's putting a strain on the nation's freight network. The Wall Street Journal reportsthat Denver, a central hub for transportation of goods across the country, is experiencing a shortage of warehouse space due to increased demand from marijuana producers.

Cresa Partners, a real estate brokerage firm, reports that as much as a third of new warehouse space leased in Colorado over the past 18 months has gone to marijuana growers and distributors. They need ample space to conduct their business, so they're competing hard for it when it becomes available and raising prices as a result. The WSJnotes a 10 percent increase in warehouse rent prices and a doubling of the cost to buy warehouse space in Colorado since the start of last year. This has left local businesses frustrated, but it's also adding to the costs of interstate traders who are finding it hard to secure storage for their goods as they pass between the US west coast and midwest.

PTSD Patients Sue Colorado Over Marijuana Decision

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER (AP) -- Colorado's decision not to allow marijuana to treat post-traumatic stress disorder has prompted a lawsuit by PTSD sufferers.

Five PTSD patients filed suit Thursday in Denver District Court. They're challenging a July decision by the Colorado Board of Health not to make PTSD the first condition added to Colorado's medicalpot eligibility list in 15 years.

The PTSD rejection came despite a recommendation from Colorado's chief medical officer and a panel of physicians. They said that questions remain about how effective pot is as a PTSD treatment, but that people with PTSD are commonly using pot anyway and that the designation would allow for better understanding about how people are using the drug.

But the Board of Health cited insufficient federal research and denied the request on a 6-2 vote.

A lawyer for the PTSD patients, Bob Hoban, said the board applied an improper standard in its rejection.

Where Is The Best Place To Buy Recreational Marijuana In Portland, Oregon On October 1st?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

strawberry satori panacea portland medical marijuana greenwise gardens 2I love rooting for people that fight for social justice. Especially when their fight includes a David versus Goliath story, and marijuana. I have found my new favorite medical marijuana dispensary in Portland, Oregon. It’s called Panacea, and it’s located at 6714 NE Sandy Blvd. I had heard about Panacea for a little while now (they are about four months old), and everything I have heard was positive. I first heard about Panacea from my friends at Eclipse Farm-Ecology. I have the utmost respect for Eclipse because of how they put their ethics and carbon footprint considerations above business. And their oil is really, really good. They only sell to like minded outlets, and Panacea is one that they work with.

The next time I heard about Panacea was when my good friend Kaliko visited them. He had nothing but good things to say about them, and brought me back a sample of Strawberry Satori, which is one of their signature strains. That sample Kaliko gave me was so fantastic, that everyone I shared it with is still talking about it. I wrote a review about it if you want to check it out. Their flower is also the strain behind the Strawberry Satori CO2 vape pen cartridges made by True North Extracts, which I also reviewed and was outstanding. True North is another very reputable company, and so I knew that if they worked that closely with Panacea, there had to be something magical going on there.

At a recent Women Grow event I ran into one of Panacea’s employees, and I asked her how she liked the dispensary. She was very quick to point out that she had worked at other dispensaries before, and that they were just all about the almighty dollar. She liked that Panacea was about patients first, social justice as a close second, and only after those things did profitability come into the equation. I kept seeing a common denominator every time I learned more about Panacea, that they were not like the average dispensary, so I decided it was time to check the place out for myself.

Scientists Working to Prevent Monsanto from Monopolizing on Cannabis Strains, But Can They Stop It?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

Scientists are working to map the complete DNA structure of the cannabis plant in order to prevent major agricultural seed companies, like Monsanto, from securing exclusive patents on specific strains.

Late last week, Mowgli Holmes, Chief Scientific Officer of Phylos Bioscience, the company overseeing the Cannabis Genome Project, explained to those in attendance of TechFestNW in Portland, Oregon that cannabis should be viewed comparatively to another major American cash crop: Corn. 

He said that both of these commodities were domesticated by humans around 10,000 years ago, and that, like corn, cannabis was spread “to every corner of the world,” pushing the scope of its biological reach “to a point in the evolutionary landscape that it never would’ve gotten on its own.”

Much to the appreciation of the audience, Holmes then went on to explain that one of his primary goals with the Cannabis Genome Project, which is focused on learning more about the biology of bud, is to create a genetic blueprint for marijuana that allows it to maintain its “public domain” status, and ultimately, “piss off Monsanto” by preventing them from marketing certain strains exclusively. 

It has been suspected for decades that Monsanto has been developing genetically modified cannabis in a super secret lab somewhere in the United States in an effort to aggressively position themselves in the market once the federal government finally allows farmers to grow weed.

The U.S. Government’s Department of Health Finally Admits That Marijuana Kills Cancer

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Throughout history the main reasons human beings willfully kill other human beings are religion and greed. Although it is surprising that people steeped in a religion that worships a “loving god” revels in killing other humans, it is part of the “convert or kill” mindset that one the major Abrahamic religions, Christianity thrives and prospers on. It is not as surprising that human beings kill others out of greed, but for an industry that claims it exists to “save lives and heal infirmity,” it is astonishing that the pursuit of profit drives their pursuit of death and sickness. For the medical industrial complex, there is nothing as terrifying as a cure, or remedy, for a highly profitable and fatal disease like cancer.
 
It is little surprise that for a couple of decades at the direction of the multi-national pharmaceutical industry, and more recently the for-profit prison and law enforcement industry, the federal government and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have concealed a highly effective and completely natural remedy and relief for cancer. In just the past two weeks, the federal government and NIH have quietly confirmed that cannabis (marijuana) is very effective at killing cancer cells without harming healthy cells like radiation and chemotherapy. In fact, on the NIH website devoted to the hideous disease, Cancer.gov, they published the truth about marijuana and its effectiveness at combatting cancer in a stunning reversal of over four decades of deliberate fear-mongering and propaganda portraying the common weed as dangerous; all to satisfy the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, prison system, and law enforcement agencies at the local, state, and federal level.

Petition to Start New Marijuana Political Party

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

YORK, Neb. -- Several supporters for the legalization of medical marijuana are traveling across the state to unite people under a new political party.

"It obviously helps children with cerebral palsy with the epilepsy. It's something that is needed," said York supporter Josh Packard.

They stood along the streets of York Sunday afternoon, rallying drivers and passersby to sign their petition to start the Marijuana Party of Nebraska.

"I'm upset. I'm sick of waiting," said petition organizer Mark Elworth Jr. "At my point, I should do everything in my power to get to everybody to let them know that we're serious, and this is just an avenue that I think that's going to stick them right in the gut."

Elworth started the petition back in April when he knew the medical marijuana bill wouldn't be passed through the legislature. He needs 5,500 signatures to create his own party and currently has a little more than 3,000.

"Some people think, 'Oh, he just wants to legalize weed.' No, I'm trying to make our state better. I want young people to stay in our state. I want the money to stay here, and I want our patients to stay here. I want everybody to be healthy," said Elworth. "I don't want people on 10 pills. I want people on one plant, not 10 pills."
