Is marijuana legalization in California the beginning of the end of the war on weed?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

The door to legalized marijuana in California cracked ajar in 1996, when voters approved the Compassionate Use Act, which allowed doctors to recommend cannabis to their patients.

In November, the door flew open as voters approved Proposition 64 by a wide margin, a measure that legalizes marijuana for adult recreational use and could herald the beginning of the end of the federal government’s misbegotten war on weed.

Maine can (Finally!) Celebrate Their Legalization Victory!

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

As you may have read in our election coverage article about Maine and it’s legalization measure, it wasn’t one that we could call on election night.  In fact, the opposition for Question 1 just finally dropped their request for a recount just this past Saturday, December 16th.

The recount was 2 weeks into the process and they had counted about 1/5th of the total number of ballots so far.  The recount that had been conducted so far showed that the tally would not change significantly and the “yes” votes still seemed to have it.

According to the Press Herald:

U.S. Women Increasingly Using Pot During Pregnancy, Study Finds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

CHICAGO (AP) — U.S. women are increasingly using marijuana during pregnancy, sometimes to treat morning sickness, new reports suggest. Though the actual numbers are small, the trend raises concerns because of evidence linking the drug with low birth weights and other problems.

In 2014, almost 4 percent of pregnant women said they’d recently used marijuana, up from 2.4 percent in 2002, according to an analysis of annual drug use surveys.

Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, said the results raise concerns and urged doctors and other health care providers to avoid recommending the drug for pregnant women. Volkow commented in an editorial published online Monday with the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Maine’s Marijuana Opponents Back Down on All of That Recount Business

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Although the controversial ballot recount that has been taking place in Maine concerning whether or not the state actually legalized marijuana was expected to conclude sometime during the early part of 2017, it seems the anti-legalization forces that have been jamming up the state’s progress for the past month have officially thrown in the towel.

Over the weekend, the Maine Secretary of State’s office announced that the lynch mob gunning to discredit the validity of the ballots in support of the state’s recreational marijuana ballot initiative (Question 1) had backed off its mission to try and prevent legalization.

“We promised folks that if we came to a point where we could not see any chance of reversing the result, we would not drag the process out,” Newell Augur, legal counsel for the No on 1 campaign, told the Portland Press Herald. “We are satisfied that the count and the result are accurate.”

Homeless Across Country Fall Victim to Synthetic Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The nation’s homeless are proving to be especially susceptible to a new, dirt-cheap version of synthetic marijuana, which leaves users glassy-eyed, aimless, sprawled on streets and sidewalks oblivious to their surroundings or wandering into traffic.

Nearly 300 homeless people became ill last month in St. Louis due to the man-made hallucinogen that experts believe is far more dangerous and unpredictable than the real thing. Other outbreaks have occurred in New York City, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.

“It was common for us to see reactions where they were violent, incoherent, sometimes catatonic on the ground,” Austin police Lt. Kurt Thomas said.
