Man Lights Up a Joint in Portland Courtroom, Disrupts Murder Trial

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

Thomas Paine, one of the Founding Fathers, said: “Common sense is a flower that doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden.”

It became apparent that one young man’s garden lacked that flower when he lit up a joint in a courtroom in Portland, Oregon during the hearing of a tragic shooting death of a 17-year-old boy.

The 30-something smoker apparently thought it was cool because, after all, weed is legal in Oregon, right?

Two deputies quickly disabused the man of that notion.

Courthouse deputy Chris Payne said he walked through a plume of smoke to the man who was toking in the third row of the crowded courtroom.

Is the Weed Industry Too Lucrative to Be Illegal?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 12th 2017 by THCFinder

CBS recently did a story about a California man who was selling off his huge retail store. The first offer to buy it came from someone who wants to turn the vast space in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains into an indoor weed farm.

The realtor, a conservative churchgoer, initially balked at the deal; the store-owner jumped at it.

“The realtor,” said the owner, “may be anti-drug, but he’s pro-money.”

Of course he is, and if he wants to make any, he’ll get with the program.

With weed being legal, in some form, in 29 states, prohibitionists are fighting an uphill battle when it comes to the economy and the free market.

Unless the prohibitionists lighten up, the feds and state governments will continue to miss out on billions in pot earnings.

State Gauging Interest in MMJ Lab Testing

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota health officials are gauging interest among laboratories in the state in testing medical marijuana once a system is established for making it legally available to patients.

The state Health Department is seeking non-binding letters of intent from laboratories by the close of business on Aug. 25.

North Dakota voters in November approved medical marijuana, and the Legislature this year crafted regulations that Gov. Doug Burgum approved in April. The North Dakota Compassionate Care Act allows the use of medical marijuana for 17 medical conditions, along with terminal illnesses.

Producers of the drug will be required by law to have it laboratory tested for contaminants including pesticides and molds and to ensure that levels of the intoxicant THC are accurately labeled. The medical marijuana centers will have to pay the testing costs.

AG Sessions Newest Anti-Pot Threats are Just Hot Air

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is making it crystal clear that he’s not on the pot bandwagon with new letters to three adult-use states on how they plan on addressing what he called “serious issues” surrounding marijuana use.

Sessions wrote a letter to Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, as well as similar ones to Washington State and Oregon who also have recreationally legal pot.

In his letters, Sessions writes about his concerns over a 2016 study that found some negative associations between cannabis legal states and increased dangers in Colorado such as:

Seattle Drops $1,000 Fine Against HempFest

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle has dropped a $1,000 fine against the nonprofit organization that runs HempFest, the annual summer marijuana celebration.

The city accused Seattle Events, also known as HempFest Central, of operating a marijuana business without a license in a citation in June. The citation stemmed from a private party of about 75 people that the organization held at a home on April 20.

A city inspector said he observed attendees using marijuana. However, his declaration in support of the citation did not explain how the group had operated a marijuana business in violation of city law.

HempFest attorney Fred Diamondstone contested the fine for that reason, among others, but the city kept prosecuting the case until late Tuesday, when the Department of Finance and Administrative Services dropped the citation after The Associated Press asked why HempFest had been fined.

Vermont Governor Creating Commission for Pot Legalization Issues

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Gov. Phil Scott says he’s organizing a commission to study issues related to the legalization of marijuana and will announce members in the next few days.

Vermont Public Radio reports retail outlets in Maine and Massachusetts will begin selling legal recreational marijuana in less than a year. The Republican governor says he wants the new commission to help answer questions about the arrival of legalized marijuana in neighboring states, especially concerning highway safety.

Scott says he wants to have more stringent highway safety standards in place before he’ll consider state-sanctioned recreational marijuana sales.

Earlier this year, Scott vetoed legislation that would have legalized possession of marijuana for Vermont residents. A compromise measure he negotiated was later blocked by state House Republicans in June.
