Recreational marijuana sales considered in Utah-Nevada border towns

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

In an interview with FOX 13, West Wendover Mayor Danny Corona said he would like to see recreational marijuana sold here and is not opposed to "pot tourism."

"They're already coming out here to drink and gamble," he said. "They might as well come out here for recreational marijuana."

Corona was elected mayor last year and attributes part of his win to his outspoken support of Question Two, Nevada's recreational marijuana vote. It passed in West Wendover with 54 percent of the vote (but failed in Elko County by a similar margin).

Medical marijuana has been legal in Nevada since 2000, but West Wendover declined to pursue it at the time.

Colorado Bill Prepares for Pot Crackdown, But Governor Says No Sweat

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado lawmakers are taking matters into their own hands when it comes to combating the snarling dogs of the federal war on weed.

Most recently, the state’s House of Representatives put its seal of approval on a measure intended to prevent local law enforcement from assisting the Justice Department, in any way, if U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions decides to impose an all out attack on the industry of legal marijuana.

The measure, which was approved in a vote of 56-to-7, was designed to stop public employees from partnering up with the DEA or any of the other hammer-dropping agencies within the Justice Department for the sole purpose of tearing down the legal cannabis trade.

Will Nevada be the First State With Cannabis Clubs?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

We have been covering the topic of social cannabis consumption for quite a while at The Weed Blog.  Being based in Portland we would love to see Oregon be the first state to pioneer this area of the cannabis industry (and we are sure hopeful with Senate Bill 307 on the lines currently).  However, some legislative activity in Nevada this past week might make the Silver State the first to have legalized and regulated social cannabis consumption clubs.So, will Nevada be the first state with cannabis clubs?

From the Associated Press:

A bill allowing local governments to issue permits for marijuana social clubs has passed in the Nevada Senate.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the bill passed 12-9 Tuesday and next will be reviewed by the Assembly.  Lawmakers say tourists do not have a safe place to use recreational marijuana, which is legal in Nevada. They say this bill would give tourists a place to go and relieve some pressure off casinos and hotels.  Andy Abboud, Las Vegas Sands Corp. senior vice president, says pot lounges in Clark County would be located on the Las Vegas Strip.

Was Your Pot Grown by ISIS? Report Claims the Terrorist Organization Now Sells Weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Bereft of easy cash from the sale of oil, to which the world remains hopelessly addicted, the black-clad international bogeymen at the Islamic State have resorted to selling drugs—including marijuana—in order to fund their version of the caliphate, according to a recent newspaper report.

ISIS is like any other kind of entity on earth, be it comprised of terrorist gangsters or celebrity chefs, in that it requires money to function. For many years, ISIS relied on petroleum to fund its fledgling empire (though extortion, kidnapping and straight-up, old-fashioned heavy taxation also brought in cash).

According to a 2015 report in the Financial Times, “oil [was] the black gold that funds Isis’ black flag,” to the tune of $50 million a month.

By last summer, that figure had diminished to a mere $15 million a month, according to the U.S.-led anti-ISIS coalition, which made ISIS oil fields and tankers a frequent target of airstrikes (then again, that same coalition claimed ISIS’s oil profits were closer to $300 million a month, an estimate other sources disputed).

Pot Smokers Wanted! Researchers Seek 25,000 Cannabis Users for Study

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

With fake weed news all over the place these days, one should not make any significant life style changes or travel plans without doing some due diligence.

Having said that, it appears to be true that Berlin’s Research Initiative on Cannabis Consumption is seeking government approval to analyze recreational weed smokers in order to better understand the effects of pot after a period of several years of use.

How many smokers will they need?

According to German publication the Local25,000!

The Research Initiative submitted its application entitled “Scientific Study on Cannabis Sequences for Mentally Healthy Adult Consumers” to the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) in early April.

Study: Medical Marijuana Could Save Medicaid $1 Billion

Category: News | Posted on Thu, April, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana is a drug. This nobody can deny. Look: there it is—marijuana!—on the country’s Controlled Substances Act, the list of America’s most dangerous drugs.

But when they’re not being bad, drugs are also medicine. And, in the 28 states where medical cannabis is legal, so is marijuana. In those 28 states, something interesting happened over the past decade: sick people on Medicaid filled fewer prescriptions—so fewer prescriptions, that if medical marijuana were available in all 50 states, Americans would save more than $1 billion on Medicaid costs, according to a new study.

By now, it’s no secret that cannabis is useful for many of the ailments associated with aging and accompanying serious diseases including chronic pain and cancer (two common ailments for which the typical pharmaceutical cocktail prescribed by a doctor will include some kind of opiate).
