Colorado Health Department Grants Millions for Cannabis Research

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Colorado’s Health Department has announced that it will be providing researchers with millions of dollars in order to study cannabis.

According to the department, $2.35 million will be spent on researching cannabis and its impact on driving – both individually (how it effects individual drivers), and societally (how it effects accident rates).

“This research will be invaluable in Colorado and across the country,” says 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.”

According to Wolk, funding will also be spent on researching cannabis’ impact on breast milk, including how long it stays in the milk of mothers who are nursing.

Colorado Offers Pot Czar to Help with Legal Weed Transition in Massachusetts

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

A lot has changed since Colorado voted to legalize recreational weed four years ago when Governor John Hickenlooper humorously told anxious pot advocates “don’t break out the Cheetos or goldfish too quickly.”

It was a brave new world, and Colorado faced unheard of challenges. Things were a bit, well, chaotic for a while. Not everyone knew what was legal and what was not or which government agency was meant to solve the many issues that arose.

Thankfully, Hickenlooper had the presence of mind to appoint a brilliant pot czar—Andrew Freedman, who famously said back in 2014, “We’re making the plane as we fly it.”

Former DEA ‘Propagandist’ Says Agency Knows Marijuana Is Safe

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

Zealots, hired guns, good Germans—call them what you will, but it would be hard to call the men and women of the Drug Enforcement Administration dummies.

The DEA does not hire just anyone; its agents are the out-performers and overachievers among law enforcement—maybe not quite FBI or CIA material, but still head-and-shoulders above the cops spending careers doing traffic stops in small towns.

All this to say, the DEA is aware of science and it is aware of data. It cannot preach ignorance. But it has a job to do in regard to enforcing federal marijuana law—which is why the DEA knowingly and willingly lies about the (lack of) harm posed by the drug, according to a former woman who cops to spreading misinformation for the agency’s benefit.

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.”

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.”
