Colorado Takes Aim at the Marijuana Black Market

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Colorado, the first state to legalize recreational sale of marijuana, continues to provide lawmakers around the country with examples of what they should and should not do as they prepare to regulate medical and adult-use cannabis industry.

The latest involves allowing people to grow a large amount of marijuana in their homes, which Rocky Mountain State lawmakers have learned leads to a host of issues. Chief among them is the ability for organized crime to legally grow large amounts of marijuana, then divert it to the black market.

Minnesota Marijuana Oil Sent to New York Stirs Anger

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Some top Minnesota lawmakers want to crack down on a medical marijuana company whose former executives face felony charges for shipping marijuana oil to New York.

County prosecutors charged two ex-executives at Minnesota Medical Solutions with felonies alleging they collaborated in late 2015 to ship $500,000 worth of marijuana oil to New York. The charges against Laura Bultman and Ronald Owens are still proceeding in court.

But some top Minnesota lawmakers said Thursday they’re pushing to give regulators authority to revoke the company’s license and hit them with a $1 million fine.

Parent company Vireo Health has licenses to sell medical marijuana in both states, but it’s still a federal crime to ship a controlled substance across state lines. The company has said the former employees’ acted improperly.

Town Votes to Reduce Weed Possession Charges to Less Than $1

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

The police chief in Monona, Wisconsin seems like a very chill guy.

“If the community values are, ‘Marijuana is not that serious of an offense’ and they want to have a $1 fine, or no fine, that’s their opinion,” Chief Walter Ostrenga said after the town council voted to scrap all weed possession charges.

Under the new ordinance, possessing marijuana in public or in private spaces is no longer subject to a fine, as long as the person is over 21.

Smoking weed in a private residence is also exempt, although toking in public is still subject to a $200 fine.

After a year and a half of discussion, the Monona City Council considered reducing weed possession fines of $200 to a mere $1.

But then they decided even a dollar was too much.

Woody Harrelson quit; What happens to your body after a stoner quits smoking weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Ask an expert about the effects of marijuana withdrawal and the conversation quickly turns to the cognitive.

After all, marijuana is a hallucinogenic drug that alters the brain, how a person thinks and perceives the world, research shows. Experts then can identify with actor Woody Harrelson and his decision to quit marijuana a year ago because it kept him from "being emotionally available."

It's true. Real feelings are among the things that return to a person coming off years of marijuana use. But so does anxiety and the realization of the drug's consequences.

These Are the Best—and the Worst—States for Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

On paper, medical marijuana is more common in America than firearms.

Forty-four states have medical cannabis laws on the books—which means that more than 300 million Americans can access legal marijuana in some form if they or a family member is sick. That’s 85 percent of the country.

Compare that to the owners of the country’s 300 million guns—which are stashed in only one-third of households—and it seems the U.S. should be in the running for mellowest place on earth, rather than the best-armed and most-incarcerated.

And since deaths related to opiate abuse are reduced by as much as 25 percent where medical-marijuana is available, America should also expect the heroin epidemic to be ending any day now.

Sounds great! But for now, this is all abstract theory.

We Need More Weed: Booze and Opioids Causing More Veteran Suicides

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

Rather than allow veterans to participate in medical marijuana programs in states where it is legal, the United States government has continued to encourage active and retired members of the military to self-medicate with dangerous prescription drugs. Sadly, a new study finds that this policy may actually be causing more of America’s soldiers to commit suicide.

The latest research shows that veterans with drug or alcohol dependency issues are twice as likely to kill themselves than the ones not plagued by those demons.

The study, which was published in the latest issue of the journal Addiction, suggests that medical marijuana could be a salvation’s wing for a number of vets who mostly rely on sedatives and opioid medications to alleviate the debilitating symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain.
